Did Obama take the high ground at the debates, or did he just let Romney blather?
Never claimed the intellectual work attendant writing covered call options against stock is the same as manning a pitchfork, but I'll put my four decades of service to the military service against anything anyone here has to offer, and that includes Mitt Robme, whose five sons never saw anything but a Boy Scout uniform, and Oblamer, who was running whatever in Chi town. Sixteen hour days in a button down suit just don't impress me like 16 hours wearing camouflage in the old country or the Middle East, cutting back to the tent to take some AF or CLEP courses to beef up my MBA. Got that damn gun oil all over my textbook too.
I could be wrong. Never claimed office or the identification with the masses, which as you imply, make great Soylent Green patties, if tough to swallow.
My only candidate was Ron Paul, who didn't make the cut.
I was just talking to tactics by Oblamer. As far as I am concerned, the only thing either can do is reel in spending, since tax rates are the most favorable in the world here in the US, and business is not responding by hiring under a carrot only scenario--back in the day, we had the stick of 70% marginal tax rates, and folks got hired because they might do better by a co than giving Uncle more than 2/3rds the next marginal dime.
Sometimes all pleasure and no pain makes jack b business, a complacent spoiled boy. As the most famous man in the world said: "I don't always drink de Kool Aid of borrow and spend, but when I'm faced with two idiots and no reprieve, and de same spend spend spend of other pipples monyah? I pick
1-I was simply pointing out, do not begrudge him on the dividends he reaps in from money he earned. We do the same. And if it was earned while providing service to our country,it ain't enough,no matter how much it is.
2-I respect your service to our country with no ifs, and, or buts.
3-One of our candidates respects our military & folks on the ground more than the other.
4-We can vote for one or the other or do nothing. I do not believe they are the same.
5-There are leaders who love and respect our flag and country.And then there's one who kisses the ring of an arab sheik,and knowingly pulls security away from our Libya mission in a time of need......and covers it up.
Stay well and continue to do what you do!
And I promise to continue to be a pin head.
If you want a guy who kisses the ring of an Arab sheik, you might try Bush I who calls the Saudi Prince "my other son", that's what Nixon left us with when he went for petrodollar support from the Arabs 1971--and robbed the dollar of its value in perpetuity thereafter.
Neither candidate will fire for effect and put that signature mushroom cloud in the sky over there, so neither has my respect, and I am tired of picking the cream of the crap.
The fiscal cliff may be the best thing since sliced bread--the only avenue either of these clowns will take is to avoid making as decision.
