2008 Election

Well folks, the political Fol-De-Rol is almost over.  I, for one, will be delighted to not be receiving the damned robo-calls for a while! --Maddening things! At this point, it looks like a horse race.  I just hope that things cook out good for us, as reenactors. -Keep your fingers crossed, hm?

UPDATE: At this point it seems the deed is done.  Not only has there been a change of drivers, it has been decided to burn the bus, too. >:D

Well we fall into that category whose partiotic duty is to pay more in taxes to help redistribute the wealth so others can have a piece of the pie. Granted that I paid my way through college plus worked FT and PT, my wife has some student loans left but received a Ph.D., works 55-65 hours a week plus some weekends, live in one of the most expensive places, have a baby and already pay 30% in Federal taxes on top of NY state and NYC taxes. We worked hard to get to where we are at but now where is the incentive to go out and make more money if you are going to take it from me?

There is NO incentive if they're just going to take it. I find the threat of "executive Orders" even more chilling. :O>@

Well fellows I am part of the Pennsy-Kentuck world here in Pennsylvania. Only Pittsburgh and Philly matter. They are the elite of PA. I am a gun toting ,bible thumping uniform and jeep owning nut. I about fell over election night when this was said on ABC.
 I will have to watch what will happen and fight for my rights if they don't take them away. I'm a poor hospital orderly but others feel I could be rich. You are right what you all are saying. Get ready for the fun--

Think they will be brown shirts? Maybe red, white and blue just to have some sense of patriotism. Cabinet picks are interesting though!

This was debunked by factcheck.org back in November.

"Obama was not talking about a "security force" with guns or police powers. He was talking specifically about expanding AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps and the USA Freedom Corps, which is the volunteer initiative launched by the Bush administration after the attacks of 9/11,"

Hate to tell you this but the Ivy League schools are not in the middle or to the right but to the left in practice. Wouldn't take it for what it is worth. In fact, most schools in this country have left views (faculty/administration) and if you speak out not a good thing. Know a couple of professors there at UPenn and they do not speak against the left or they would be marked. They are from Eastern Europe and if anyone knows what the left can be like they do but they value their positions so stay quiet. Of course the right is going to take the opposite extreme as well. It comes down to what the Founding Fathers believed when they set up the Electorial College: The average citizen will not care enough, follow politics enough or be smart enough to make a proper, educated decision but follow what is being told to them. Sadly, the Electorial College has left what it was set up for: correcting the average voter.

Perhaps, but if you look at the adverts and rumors they examined during the campaign I found them to be pretty even handed.

Well lads, inauguration day isn't too far off from now.... it'd be my guess that we won't have a long wait to see how they intend to screw with things.  Judging by the regular media, the obsessive adoration with their messiah is on going.  --You'd think that the sun never shone before election day!! Nauseating, that! Just hold on tight, and don't be too surpised at developing events.  I still think that we're in for an uncomfortable ride.
