    This week, thanks to a big increase in its television spending, Mitt Romney has turned the tables on the president and now is spending more on television advertising in the swing states. Buoyed by a 64% increase in his television spending (vs. only 2% for Obama) Romney is spending $22.4 million on ads in Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Colorado, Iowa and Nevada compared to $17.5 million for President Obama. In the previous week — and for several weeks before that — Obama had a spending edge. In the week of October 1st, Obama outspent Romney by $17.2 to $14.8 million. This...

    LOS ANGELES – Four years ago, Lindsay Lohan referred to Obama's Presidential victory as "amazing," but cut to 2012, and it seems the "Mean Girls" star has had a serious change of heart. "I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think (my vote) is Mitt Romney," Lohan told reporters, including FOX411's Pop Tarts, at the Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink Launch Party Los Angeles on Thursday night.
  • Idea for a mutual fund that will make the lefties explode!

    my crazy brain | today | me
    Everyone knows what a black hole of finance the "democratic strongholds" have become. Municipal bonds used to be a good investment, but with democrats having driven so many cities and states to the economic brink, I'd be leary. How about a tax-exempt mutual fund of Republican municipalities only? I'd guess the investors would flock to those because they would be safer, and we'd make it clear that democrats are a lousy investment.
  • The #1 Most Disturbing Thing About Biden in the Debate (vanity)

    Was anyone really surprised at Biden's behavior last night? I saw exactly what I expected to see. It's pretty much been his M.O. for as long as I can remember: mock, condescend, act bored by the other guy's youth/incompetence/ideas, etc. In other words, just like Putzident Obamugabe wanted, Joe was being Joe. However, for me, the part of the debate that was truly appalling -- even for Biden and his clown act -- was his dismissal of the concern of a nuclear Iran. I honestly could not believe what I was hearing, as he essentially poo-poo'ed Ryan (and by extention,...
  • Now apparent why Obama picked Biden for VP... Joker, thuggish and appealing to the "dumb vote"

    10/12/2012 6:27:09 AM PDT · by hope_dies_last · 6 replies
    Biden was out of control in last night's debate. The sit-down format of the debate was deliberate and lends itself to this type of hyperbole attitude strategy exhibited by this poor excuse for a VP. Biden has that wicked joker smile, which is awkward and creepy... Nonetheless, Obama, mistakenly thought like in his own debate, that Biden did a good job. I can see Obama and Biden high-five'n each other in that corrupt, hood-winking, thuggish, Chicago-style poltician manner that only this Adminstration can. All this left me convinced that this administration has now become shameless in their pursuit of the...

  • So, How Would You Deal With a Smirking Biden, or Someone Like Biden at Work or Say at Church?

    self | october 12, 2012 | beebuster2000
    So, you are at a meeting at work, or say at a Church meeting. You are talking, and some guy is constantly mugging, laughing smirking. You are distracted by it, as is everyone else. But if you stop and call him on it, engage, he just turns up the juice, becomes totally disruptive, and wins. so what do you do? Ignore it and hope everyone else sees him for the fool he is? Or come out with some clever one liner, if you can think of one: "didnt your parents teach you any manners?" Or reach over and slap the...

    Relatives of a 10-year-old boy are asking why the Cypress-Fairbanks school district found it necessary to arrest a fourth-grader after he threw a plastic container at a teacher. The boy, who attends Emmott Elementary School, remained in custody Thursday at the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center, 1200 Congress, in downtown Houston, where community activist Quanell X called a news conference. "You mean to tell me that in 2012 we're now locking away children in elementary school for just disrupting the learning environment?" Quanell said. "The zero tolerance policy should be done away with.".... .....Photos of the boy's classroom, taken by...

    Explanation: A single image from the world's most powerful survey instrument captured this spectacular skyview. Looking toward Sagittarius, the scene spans nearly 3 degrees or six times the width of the Full Moon. At bottom, upper right, and lower left it covers the Lagoon Nebula (M8), the Trifid Nebula (M20), and NGC 6559, in the crowded, dusty starfields of the central Milky Way. The adopted color scheme shows dust reddened starlight in red hues and normally red emission from hydrogen atoms in green. Built and operated by the Pan-STARRS project, the instrument features a 1.4 gigapixel (billion pixel) digital camera...

    Nigella Lawson insisted that she had nothing against the French as she delivered a series of cutting remarks about their pretentious sauces, fussy plate decoration and egotistical chefs. The author, speaking to an audience at The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, deftly filleted the nation that prides itself on its gastronomy, saying that she preferred Italian and even English cuisine. Asked why she had written her latest book, Nigellissima, about Italian food, she said that she had gone to Italy as a student because it was not France. “My parents were great francophiles, and my father now lives in France....

    Yahoo! Travel ^ | Thursday, October 4, 2012 | Adam H. Graham
    Mysteries come in many forms: ancient, modern, unsolved, and unexplained. But the world's most mysterious buildings are a physical force to be reckoned with. They've become popularized on websites full of user-generated and editor-curated like Abandoned-places.com, weburbanist.com, and AtlasObscura.com, an exhaustive database of the unusual. "In an age where it sometimes seems like there's nothing left to discover, our site is for people who still believe in exploration," says AtlasObscura.com cofounder Joshua Foer. Our definition of mysterious is broad and varied. Some buildings on our list are being eaten alive by the earth, such as a lava-buried church in the...
