Government seems to be expendable to them

After they've used government "to build that", they just get rid of it- for everybody else.

In other words:

water is wet. I can't stand listening to the parade of stories talking about how much money this "documentary" is making and all of the publicity this is getting. I don't even know how people can consider this a legitimate documentary given that it is speculative about what things will be like in 4 years based on assertions and theories that are questionable if not outright laughable. Whatever people can legitimately say negative about Michael Moore's films, they are at least based on real events and facts rather than fantasy and speculation.

The GOP won't be giving up jack IMHO

They want it all, badly- and could potentially win it all. They may not like Romney much (if at all) but they DESPERATELY want to get rid of President Obama and Romney/Ryan is their only "vehicle" for doing so. For the record, I believe that President Obama will win re-election and our chances of holding onto the Senate have gotten better. I'd like to think (and hope) that we could win back the House too but we may not be able to win back enough seats to recover from the 2010 washout.

The bigger question for me is what will the Republicans do- after stacking the deck so high against President Obama and the Democrats- if/when President Obama wins a second term and/or the Democrats hold onto the Senate (though that could be another topic in and of itself)?

Yes

Obama shoved these waivers- which do NOTHING to "gut" welfare reform work requirements- down the states' throats to "shore up his base" and the states- even those with Republican Governors- just had to do what President Obama demanded!!!



Is THAT what Romney is suggesting?

I can't wait for the debates when President Obama is (hopefully) going to shove this lie back up where it came from!

"The economy started going south when the Democrats took over House and Senate"

is Brooks smoking?

Bush signed almost nothing the Democratic-controlled Congress passed from 2007-2009 and vetoed anything that somehow managed to elude Republican-led Filibusters in the Senate (a prototype for 2009-2011), so how could they be even marginally responsible for what happened?



Republican logic would be fascinating if it didn't lead to such horrendous consequences.

I also don't recall the Bush (P)residency as necessarily being "halcyon days" for the economy either. The economy went into recession almost as soon as he stole office, the tax cuts he got passed in 2001 and 2003 have done virtually nothing to help the economy, and I just don't remember things being that great. Maybe we weren't sliding off the cliff (yet) but the economy wasn't growing like gangbusters either from what I remember. I remember it being fairly stagnant for most people.

Anybody remember how his (mis-)administration (and McConnell's wife) tried to get fast-food jobs reclassified as "manufacturing" jobs?

Just "ink on a page"

Or is it?

Getting tired of this meme too

I love Hillary and believed that she would've been good for a 2008 "unity" ticket but it didn't happen then and it's not.gonna.happen now either. I certainly would NOT do it if the Republicans say it's a "good idea" either.

Are internal hard drives better than/preferable to external drives or does it matter much anymore?

I need to replace an internal hard drive that went kaput awhile ago but it seems as though stores are pushing external hard drives over internal drives. Should I invest in a internal or external drive as a replacement? I should add that I have a hard drive already that is being used for Windows 7 but I have a big iTunes library which has whittled my drive space down to about 20 GB and need a new drive to store that on while using the internal drive for Windows. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Strange notebook problem

My daughter's notebook went kaput on her a couple of weeks ago and I have yet to figure out the source of the problem. It turns on o.k. and goes through the motions of starting up but instead of booting Windows 7 (64-bit), all that is on the screen is a cursor at the top-left side of the screen and nothing more happens. I got myself a boot disc and ran some diagnostics on it including a virus scan- one trojan found but I removed it but it didn't fix anything, I ran startup repair-which found no problems, and I ran System Restore- which failed 3 times for some unknown reason. I'm completely stuck at the moment as to how to proceed. My wife bought it from a co-worker whose brother apparently got it as a floor model and wants $40 to take a look at it and fix it. The only thing that I can think of trying at this point is to get a replacement OS disk from HP and re-install Windows. If anybody else has any other suggestions besides re-installing Windows, please let me know. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
