Has it been 40 years since Dirty Harry starring Clint Eastwood and the God Father starring Marlon Brando were hot at the movies; the song Id love you to want me by Lobo went to No. 2 on the Billboard chart; Richard M. Nixon was re-elected President of the United States
Same thing with MASH but I'd rather wast time with MASH re runs than with the cutsey and maudlin crap that was the Waltons.
It was a cold, blustery day. Sage was trundling through the snow, his red Land Cruiser barely recognizable through the crusted white stuff. He was driving with the top and the windshield down. Although he was well bundled, he was drinking to fend off the cold, and to drown his sorrow over Eve.
Little did he know he had only 8 seconds to live. As the Anuudrian battle cruiser's targeting computer zeroed in on the heat from the Toyota's exhaust Captain Zog of the Imperial Bad Guys Of The Universe Fun Destruction Force changed into his jeweled battle shorts and with an evil gleam in his three eyes opened the fire control console and pressed the trigger.
The greater irony is that (I believe) many of those going to Florida are retired NY public employees taking their tax-payer funded pensions with them
This is what frightens me more than anything. fifty or sixty years ago all of northern New England was strongly Conservative. Then, when their policies made MA, RI, CT, NY and NJ (Bosyork) as it has come to be known)unlivable they moved to areas that were not screwed up by what they had been voting in for years. At this point they start voting the same way and have screwed up where they moved.
Perhaps we need a voting probation period where if someone moves to a normal area (say Texas)their neighbors would interview them to see if they understand why things work the way they do and why things were stinko where they came from. Then they will be allowed to "test vote." After some years of learning they would then be able to vote for real.
Or, we could set up border crossings to keep the pink Volvos and Obama bumper stickers out like East Germany kept the Trabants in.
Honestly, who carries 22 thousand bucks in cash with them? Think about it. Youre selling your car for $20,000. A guy from out of state shows up at your door and says, Ok, heres $20,000 in cash. Bet ya dollars to donuts youd think something was fishy.
Real estate auctions usually require a buy in price of several thousand dollars. Cash may not be common at those auctions but not uncommon. Some cash businesses will make that much in a weekend and regularly transport it to their bank
We need some sort of responsible adult in the room to ensure monetary policy is administered in a truly apolitical fashion
The problem here is that "adult" would have incredible power over the money supply. I think I would rather endure the wiles of the economic cycle rather than the whims of man and see the fed disbanded.
That being said I do think Cain is uniquely qualified to deal with the present structure and minimize the damage it does.
The current 47% that pay no taxes now, would DEMAND a "poverty subsidy" and get it just as they do now....We'd end up in the same boat..The same small majority (53%) of Tax Payers would be carrying the huge minority of the Poor.....The entitlement mentality would have to be addressed first, and with all 47% voting in their own best interest that's a pretty big voting block to overcome
I have a solution to that in post 31 (and it may be the only real solution)It would be a greater battle than any of the other proposed methods here though. However, it would defang the SEIU and the Government Check pimps and decapitate the special interests more effectively than anything else.
