Its ok to be confused.

Back then metric nuts and bolts were blue,standards were black.

The only easy car to work on was a rice burner.LOL

Its not easy being an American eh?

Now they won't let your dirty oil pollute our crystal clear aquifers.

We don't even know who our friends are any more.

Sad how environmentalism splits the best of neighbors.

Not your fault - we need a new pres bad!!

I apologize for him.

It is really embarrassing ,G/NG

Bob - Alaska is on the "bucket list". Cuba and Mexico are not. I want to give the list a long time to play out.

Our property tax is approximately $5500 per year (~.4 acre). As a retiree with no wage income I pay no city income tax - a great rip off by we seniors - and I get discounts - the system assumes all old people are poor.

Oh yeah - the local school system wants more money.

I've been lucky to hunt and fish a lot in Alaska - it should be your first choice - no doubt!

Mexico and Cuba - nah.

I am long uncovered shares. I have some short 11 and 10 puts that will expire worthless (I hope) on Friday.


If I were to reenter now - I would consider doing it via EXXI.

bob, i don't understand why the opposition does not start saying it is a vote in favor of not funding social security for another year. they could say instead it is a vote not to pay for social security for another year. this is a targeted program called social security, and the money removed from paychecks is not a nebulous tax that no one understands where it goes. i am not ignorant, and i know the accounting on this is hosed. however the vast number of workers does understand that this money removed from their checks is supposed to be used to fund their social security.

i just think falling in line and calling it a payroll tax cut is a euphemism that right thinking congressmen should not allow to be imposed upon their speech.

The SS "tax holiday" is a perfect Democratic Gotterdammerung strategy. It is the perfect foil for the Reps saying they do not want to tax the rich. It such a good strategy it is not being opposed. How can the Reps say they are for raising taxes - which ending the "tax holiday" would be. It is a huge chip now on the table for the "grand compromise" whenever it comes.

The race to fiscal ruin continues. The only question is how much like Greece our situation will be when the "grand compromise" is reached.
