CEA CEO on Obama: Most Anti-Business Pres. Ever

Posted By Lee Spain

That's probably true. But, if businesses lay off tens of thousands of workers to replace them with Chinese and Indian workforces, does that them anti-American?

America's Number 1 Foe?

Posted By Lee Spain

Mitt says a few things that concern me from time-to-time as he tries to "out-conservative" his competitors. I'd rank foe as something like --

Foe = Radical Islam / Iran / North Korea
Competitor = India / China
Concern = Russia / Venezuela / OPEC

Romney Laughs about layoffs.

Posted By Lee Spain

This is a very real concern about Romney. Personally, I don't have any sympathy for the ultra-wealthy who maximize their wealth by minimizing mine. But, I do recognize that it is the private sector that invests and hires and generates wealth. Obama doesn't seem to know how to energize the private sector and job growth either. It's a scary time to be middle class.

We don't need no stinking Supreme Court..

Posted By Lee Spain

If they would have known what was in it, BEFORE that voted for it, this might not have happened. wink

But, as my grandmother-in-law used to say -- "Those who don't listen have to feel."

From a scientific point of view question?

Posted By Lee Spain

A. Alien Spacecraft - this was all covered by "In Search Of" back in 1978 . . . wink
B. It is generally accepted that Gods can fly, levitate, teleport, etc. as needed to perform their duties.
C. If physics can posit wormholes, twists in space and time, parallel universes, additional dimensions, and dark matter, beings we perceive as deities may be able to use these phenomena.

Theologically, the Fourth Quarter Christian Church of Gainesville is focused on more practical and important questions--like "Why is God punishing the Gators?" and "When does Tebow become King of America?" However, ultimately, these "how" questions would all be filed under "Mysteries of Faith" by more serious Christian denominations.

Later in the afternoon, we took our dog to the park and encountered this guy. Apparently, he was once a member of Squirrel Team 6. He made it clear that if he wasn't a little squirrel he'd come down and kick our butts.

US Turns Profit From Bailouts

Posted By Lee Spain

If you or I are hard up for cash, the banks would make life rough. They should have paid back the loans at 27% interest and had to send every American $29.00 each month for being over their credit limit until the loan was paid off. It should have taken them an average of 21 years. wink
