Crazy Barry was a true laugh out loud - thanks again William, especially for your even-handed skewering of both 'sides' - the elections this time seem more and more like a two-headed coin, and it's 'heads you lose'...

In the last 15 minutes I called a Romney supporter a moron and an Obama supporter a clown. It is very trying being in the black troublemaker dot outside the Sheeple Venn diagram.. They come at you from both sides.

I actually think it is more agitating to people than the supporters of their rival camp. You know why? Because it points to an unpleasant truth about them. The word sellout comes to mind and people resort to ad hominem tactics when the realize the futility of their position.

I actually have more respect for someone who simply says I want my this or that and that's why I am voting for so and so. I'd rather hear that than some hypocritical nonsense implying that my position is the problem.

In the end what is important is the good of the country, not everyone's pet private agenda.

In almost every Country today, those with significant wealth and interests demonstrably seem to believe "their" pet agendas are far more important than the "good" of their host Country.

After all, when you have significant assets, you can choose where you reside Worldwide without too much difficulty.

New Jersey? Say hello to Haiti. "Hello Haiti." Haiti? Say hello to New Jersey. "Hello New Jersey." Go G-men! Loved your win last week...but don't expect Manning to keep throwing to you if the goal is to "make it interesting." Take a look at Dan Marino highlights if you wanna know how it's done.

Funny if it wasn't so sad. Obama's a salesman who delivers eloquent work created by backroom speech writers but can't back up the words. Will the US fall for it once again? Yes they will. This is the nation who signed up for a second term of Dubya. A fading superpower sliding into mediocrity.

1) He's actually a pretty lousy saleman once you turn off the teleprompter
2) Yes, the US will fall for it again.  We have become a nation full of self-centered children, incapable of critical thought.
3) We are not sliding into mediocrity - we've already been mediocre for a long time.  We are sliding into a far, far worse position I'm afraid.

Well, we won;t have Barry to kick around soon, we will all be Bained soon, but we deserve what we get!

Don;t tend the farm, you don;t harvest a crop!

5 day in the fields harvesting the crop of 2012, very short beans, loading up in the head, then whoosh, all of them come in at once and plug the damn thing, spent more time under the combine unplugging that in it harvesting!

Wm, your the great philosopher of this decade so far! Much more informative than any economist!

It's not about being "real", its about the hope Barry offers, and the change you can jingle all the way.
