    A 30-year-old Russian man has shot dead six of his colleagues at a pharmaceutical company in Moscow. Dmitry Vinogradov was granted access to the building as he worked at the firm as a lawyer. He changed into camouflage gear and armed himself with two semi-automatic rifles, before shooting dead four men and two women at their desks. Another woman was wounded. Following the rampage, Vinogradov gave himself up to security guards. It is believed the lawyer had gone on a five-day drinking binge after being jilted by an ex-girlfriend - a pharmacist at the company. At a court hearing for...

    President Obama must have run a great campaign considering the tremendous numbers he put up in numerous big cities. Over in Philadelphia, he was lucky enough to get 90% percent turnout in some districts with over 99% of the vote.

    Sorry but I think we have just witnessed a whole new level of voter fraud. Yes, the dems undoubtedly manufactured votes but did they also destroy valid ballots ? Feel free to pick my ideas apart, I hope you do so I can get this crap off my mind. Just please do it using the numbers not just your impressions. I don't know who else noticed this but when the early/absentee votes for OH showed up and the 1% precints was still showing Dick Morris tweeted not to worry as this was the early vote. However, I was very worried...
  • How will GOP solve fiscal cliff riddle?

    Politico ^ | 11/8/12 11:09 PM EST | By STEVEN SLOAN and KELSEY SNELL
    Republicans know they’re going to have to budge on revenues in the looming debt and spending debate. The question is when to blink. The problem: Revenue increases, which could solve the fiscal cliff riddle this fall, are also their best bargaining chip for an even bigger fight to overhaul the Tax Code expected next year. GOP lawmakers — especially those on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee — say tax increases should happen only as part of a fundamental Tax Code rewrite that also lowers marginal tax rates, a policy dream that won’t be realized until next year at the...

    Across Philadelphia, GOP poll inspectors were forcibly (and illegally) removed from polling locations. Coincidentally (or not), Mr. Obama received "astronomical" numbers in those very same regions, including locations where he received "over 99%" of the vote.
  • Ombud: Why the GOP's "Demographics Problem" Meme is Bogus

    Realville, USA ^ | Nov 8, 2012 | Ombud
    If you haven't heard yet about the GOP's huge "demographics problem," then get ready, because you'll be hearing about it a lot over the coming days and weeks. The media will hammer on the idea that the GOP is doomed by the rapid "diversification" of America, because they want to demoralize the American people. Many of the GOP-elite who pushed Romney on their base will concur, mainly because it's a convenient way to deal with their loss without pointing the finger at themselves. But neither of these groups are living in Realville, where there is no demographic problem that can't...

The day after election day, Lindsey Shello's son told her his fourth grade teacher wore all black to school. He said the teacher told class she was attending America's funeral, because Barrack Obama was re-elected president.

Shello says the teacher also told the class, the US would become the new...

  • Why Hispanics Don’t Vote for Republicans [because they tend to favor big government]

    The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama’s victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican waiting to emerge in the Hispanic population. If Republicans want to change their stance on immigration, they should do so on the merits, not out of a belief that only immigration policy...
  • Approximately 4 Million MORE votes for Romney than McCain (Vanity)

    November 8, 2012 | Strategerist
    Based on CNN vote totals and estimated percentage of votes in by state (a number of states still have less than 90% votes counted), through spreadsheet analysis Romney will end up with approximately 64 million votes; McCain received approximately 60 million votes. Of course, we can't know how the uncounted votes will turn out; my assumption is that it matches the relative percentages of the votes already counted in each state. I'd be pretty surprised if it ended up less than 3 million more votes for Romney than McCain. Even adjusting McCain's total upward to reflect growth in the voting...

    The battle for the U.S. Senate between Tim Kaine and George Allen in Virginia may have been settled in the litter box instead of the ballot box if the tightly contested election had come down to about 6,000 votes given to a cat. It’s entirely possible that third-place finisher in Virginia is Hank the Cat, a Maine Coon who ran on a pro-feline, job-creation platform. In the current online results, Kaine is ahead of Allen by about 184,000 votes as of Thursday morning. The race was expected to be very close, and it was part of a record spending spree...

    We (all of us except the godless social democrats) hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Godless social democrats don't believe in the Creator, nor do they believe in unalienable rights, nor do they believe in Equality for all men, nor do they believe in Liberty, nor do they believe in Life. And they have no concept of what "pursuit of Happiness" even means. They believe government holds unlimited power over us and...

  • New York Times: GOP Dwindling Collection of 'Angry,' 'Grumpy Old White Men'

    The New York Times issued a triumphant editorial Thursday, "Republicans, Unplugged – A diverse America hear the right-wing appeal to fear and resentment and didn't buy it." We’ll leave the Republicans to their discussions in quiet rooms in the hope that at least a few are suggesting throwing out their old and failing playbook, seemingly written by and for a dwindling society of angry white men. ....But the Republicans don’t have a Hispanic problem. They have an America problem, a country that is growing more diverse and, on a wide range of issues, shows a sensible moderation and social tolerance...

    House Speaker John Boehner wouldn't go so far as to say that he and his Republican colleagues won't waste time trying to overturn President Obama's healthcare law, but the Representative did tell ABC News' Diane Sawyer that the signature legislation is "the law of the land." "It's pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land," he said, before adding, "I think there are parts of the healthcare law that are gonna be very difficult to implement. And very expensive." Asked, "You won't be spending the time next year trying to repeal Obamacare?" Boehner responded,...
