#2 It's the 95% folks (Holder's "our people") whom the Champ and FLOTUS are most concerned about. The one percent crowd are little more than a meaningless, Stalin era slogan.

#3 Time to turn in my AMEX card.
Pelosi got cut in on one of the most coveted IPO in history when she secured the chance to buy into the Visa credit card IPO. She bought 5,000 shares of Visa at $44 a share just as legislation threatening credit card companies was moving its way through the House. Two days later Pelosi's Visa stock was worth $64. The then-Speaker made sure the bill never made it to the House floor.
Illegal except in Congress. It's worse than insider trading because key Congresscritters legislate to their advantage and then make a killing on their legislation. Outside of Congress she should be serving hard time for her criminal activity. Thought Duke Cunningham served time for such activity. No wonder Pelosi and others are so despised by voters.

#5 Obama inherited a mess from the past four years. Oh, wait a minute, he was Prez during the last 4 years.

I conducted my own little experiment this election year. Wrote in a name for one of positions on the ballot. Checked with the SoS and verified they had me listed as having voted. Then, checked the certified results. My write in name was not there.
So, I know my ballot was received. I also know it wasn't counted.

#7 I'm gobsmacked lblis. Just returned from the barbershop. No worries though, it's all over tomorrow, Mayanageddon and all of that. Undertaker haircuts are never quite satisfactory.

#8 If you're gonna borrow a gazillion dollars, might as well have an expert at the helm.

Glad to hear you'll be leaving a beautiful corpse. Mine will be saturated in alcohol...

#10 If the world should end tomorrow, you could go to a blind barber and it wouldn't make much difference. If the world, doesn't end, you might end up with the world's worst haircut.

#11 Good point John. I must confess however, my barber and his partner are rabid, anti-Obamanist. My real motivation for stopping in was to join them in one last vile rant. Unfortunately the shop was full and they were not in the mood for our usual discourse, so all I came away with was a $13. trim. They did indicate yesterday was quite slow. Just my luck, day late - dollar short. :-(
