  • Rush Limbaugh: Google in bed with Obama WH, results on him negative "by design, and on purpose"

    As the Clinton administration was winding down, I recall several people who were in the White House moving over to AOL. (Which was dominate at that time).

    Later - when GOOGLE was about to go public, there was a tremendous demand for their stock when they went public.

    I clearly remember that Algore was able to obtain a large allocation to purchase. As you recall it made lots of people wealthy - including Algore.

    I occurs to me that he fit in well with Google mangement and directors, and has had an influence on political decisions and editorial point of views.

    There is a glimmer of intelligence in the Republican response, but not enough.

    The approach should be, “Obie, you and the Dems have had your day. Just put the Demo plan in the shredder, and we start at square one with our bill.”

    “We discuss our bill, since yours has been rejected. Otherwise we would be wasting time”

    We can't let the Dems turn it into a discussion of both together. If that were to happen, it would be come a “we came part way, now you come half way, and we will take ours and mix yours with it.”

    That can't happen.

    Never forget that it is a pit of Vipers you are going into.

  • When can I withdraw my 401(k) Funds

    Rhetorical pi2 to pfflier

    O.K., I’m a dumb ass, and shouldn’t be giving advise, but that has never stopped me before.

    1. Call you investment manager at the firm that is managing your funds. He/She can tell you to the hour of when you can withdraw.

    2. Next suggestion. Don’t do this!! You are gonna pay a penalty that is painful!! Your account manager will also tell you this.

    3. Wait until you are seventy to begin to withdraw.

    4. Withdraw no more than 4% annually from your account, and you should never deplete it.

    Check with the store to see if your state gives rebates for energy saving...

    Perhaps I missed something, but it occurs to me that should the Senator (Lion) want to expedite the transition he could have retired the day before the August recess.

    There would have been no votes to be missed (since the Obama scheme could be held up in the Senate until the replacement arrived.) The replacement election process could proceed, and the Obamonation bills would become law without Teddy but with a new Senator.

    But I think that is the point. Teddy wants to go out in a blaze of glory (since he isn’t going to glory in the after life)...and going out as a Senator will give him lots more
    hoopla than going out as a FORMER senator.

    This is one of those Gordian Knots that can only be solved by having some Muslims (through trickery or persuasion) come to America and taste our barbecue baby back pork ribs (preferably dry rub). As part of the ceremony, these should be washed down with cold beer.

    My suggestion would be to do this in Memphis, since, as I recall, the dry ribs there were the best I ever had.

    The Muslims would swear off all other gods, and worship the god of pork.

    Suggestion here: Never let your credit score drop below 750 MINIMUM.

    Go to another mortgage company...Wells Fargo is good, and ask the originator if you can get lower rate on your home mortgage. That’s all you gotta do. Problem solved.

    If you can’t do better, live with what you have. Take that tax deduction for interest on your home mortage, keep going to Lowes or Home Depot ever Saturday spending all you can to make your house the most desirable in the neighborhood, and one day you will sell it make out like a bandit,head down to Ft Myers, and be happy that you conducted your personal business in a responsible manner.

    I am assuming News Papers and Television will continue to be in the tank for the invaders. Cancel all newspaper subscriptions.

    Next will probably be taxes, while at the same time, changing the books used in government schools.

    Then will come the union votes with no secret ballot.

    If they are on a roll, they may move on to eliminate Right to Life by summer.

    At the same time, they will be working on Socialized Medicine.

    My wife and I just had a tall drink out on the deck (to kill the pain. And decided that after a lifetime of voting for only one (1) democrat -ever!- volunteering for the GOP since Barry Goldwater,and working as headquarters’ volunteers for years, we decided “it ain’t gonna happen” this time.

    We are prepared to throw in the towel.

    Then this comes along! I’m aware of the history and activities. I read the books, listen to the “insiders”, read numerous newspapers and other publications....and of course live and die by Free Republic.

    Now I’m being told that there is going to be this Epiphany that will change the course of history!

    I repeat, I have lain awake many nights dreaming of something like this. But what you are saying will happen is too complex, too late, and requires too much coordination and a belief that the sheep who are following “the Messiah” will change course in a flash.

    Adopt the attitude that there are NO reputable min/micro loan companies out there. NONE! Have the mind-set that each and every one of these plan to rip you a new one!

    Also be aware that you are starting a business in the worst economic environment since the Great Depression.

    If you have not started a business before now, remember this: There are three entities that want you to fail - your brother-in-law, your competition and the government at all levels.

    I have started business, sold businesses, helped other people start and sell business, and have never forgoten something an old guy told me when I was in my twenties.
    “Every young man should own two things - a convertible and and a business - just long enough to learn that either of them look as good on the inside as they do from the outside.”

    If you are starting a business that you can find others like if you drive across town -= don’t do it!

    If you are starting a business that you could start with a micro-loan, begin saving, selling stuff, get a second job...whatever...until you can start it with what you have saved - not from a loan.

    Have you written your business plan. Do you have a good accountant? Have you talked to your banker? Can you live the first year with NO money coming out of your enterprise?

    Now, take a deep breath. Don’t rush. Get a job in the type business you want to start, and study it for another year at least....then give it shot.

    OK, so I can see possibilities with this law if it is used right.

    For example, on the night before the law goes into effect, quietly move ICE vans into a nearby area where they can't be seen, and do this at every DMV.

    Next morning have a designated line/window for illegals to apply, and when they get in line, take them out to the waiting vans and take them back to their beloved country!

    (Tongue-in-cheek, y’know, but it stopped me from swearing.)

    See-this is what makes it seem like an Alice-in-Wonderland” world.

    Law breakers walk into a department of state law enforcement. The employee is informed that the person has violated immigration laws, and thus has the obligation to have the person arrested!! But instead the person is given special privileges through a license to drive.
