We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
You borrowed against your house to send your kid to college. Your kid now lives in your basement eating Cheetos and downloading porn all day instead of out in the workforce, sitting at a desk eating Cheetos and looking at porn on company time as God and Nature intended. But that's a college education bubble. A college loan bubble. You borrowed against a useful and valuable thing, your house, and your children learned Ida Tarbell's bra size, but nothing useful enough to make them employable in a recession.
If these polls even come close to measuring the sentiment of Delaware voters, then Coons, an out-and-out leftist, will waltz into the Senate and begin serving at the beginning of the November lame duck session.
I don't know what will happen in the senate election here in Delaware, but no less than Biden and Obama, in the flesh, will be here next week to campaign for Chris Coons, the Democrat. Al Franken was here yesterday. So, there must be something they're not telling us ....
If Mike Castle had won the GOP nomination, Biden and Obama still would come out to campaign against him. this is the Veep's home state, and the "Delaware Way" is only the standard if it means the Democrats win.
Vermont differs from New Hampshire in that it was almost literally invaded by the hippies in the late 60's and early 70's. It had way more than its fair share of 'back to the land' communes, trust fund babies, and other assorted Leftist know-nothings do-nothings.
They, in turn, invited all their non-productive friends to come be politicians, bureaucrats, and to take over the political infrastructure and breach the tax revenues for their own pet policies. Ratio of public employees to taxpayers is outrageous, and they have extravegant pensions and benefits compared to the private sector. Taxes have skyrocketed.
And the native Vermonters were literally bankrupted by high taxes, and onerous regulations (Act 250, Act 60) that destroyed jobs and helped make farming unprofitable, forcing them to sell out to the newcomers at fire sale prices.
You got many of your invaders from New York. Ours in NH were from Massachusetts, tended to be of the yuppie variety turning SE NH into a Boston suburb, and started later. Something of a combination is happening in Maine.
We turned light blue a few years ago. Hopefully this election reverses that.
Same process, really. You'd think we would've learned from watching what happened to you guys.
Palin's numbers are far better among Americans who have a favorable view of the Tea Party movement. Sixty-one percent of that group views her favorably, while just 14 percent view her unfavorably. One in four aren't sure.
Meself is supportive of TEA Party but only to a degree.
Taxed Enough Already doesn't quite express me ire, Americans are Taxed Too Much Already .
Missy Sarah is albatross around Republicans' neck who squeaks about liberty but governed like a socialist when Alaska's Governor.
Being one amongst the 14% referenced, Bird Dog, me dislike for her as a candidate for any public office is not affected by media's treatment.
Feathered necklace needs to learn proper parenting skills before any further venturing into any political candidacy.
Every contested election is a gamble. Some are sure things, some are long shots.
Having Castle as the GOP candidate is like betting on red or black in roulette. You certainly have a better chance at winning SOMETHING than if you bet of a specific number, but would it be worth the trouble, really?
