3.30 am it has been over 24 hours since Blackie has been seen.
Spent TWELVE hours at 300 block of Black road hoping to see or find Blackie left her blanket and my vest there in case she comes back.
Please friends of Blackie keep your eyes peeled she may have moved to another area..Mantitou Park,P patch,or second line,she is headed west she'll follow the sun..
Dogs are incredible friends who will travel for miles to get home.
If you see Blackie report it here and on the other sites thanks Ron.

The majority of pundits, including those frequenting this site, obviously consider that Romney won his first Presidential debate with Obama. While noting that this does not necessarily mean that Romney will win the coming Presidential election, and reiterating that only the US electorate will decide that, if Romney does in fact win, I wonder what the pundits expect Romney to do for Canada that they believe Obama has been neglecting to do.
Cashmier 10/5/2012 10:43:51 AM Report
In general, I have to conclude that the debate was a tie - neither side changed opinions. People with a rightward slant believed that Romney won, people with a leftward lean believe that Obama won. Even the news outlets were all over the place with their assessments.
Because I like standing a little left of center, I thought that Romney lacked support in his arguments and claims - probably because I don't find his achievements as the Governor of one of the richest states very impressive. It's easy to get stuff done in that situation.
In addition to which - he is trying to make the economy the focus of his platform, but he isn't going to decrease funding to military and isn't going to raise taxes. If the US doesn't start getting to work on it's debt deficit, their economy is never going to recover. They need to improve the strength of their dollar so they can improve their trade position. Irony.

"No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this.”

Wisen and Learning - actually, for about an hour and a half after the debate ended the critics and news stations WERE all over the place on their assessment - because of their biases. Unfortunately, I tend to be a very busy person... so I don't have time to continue trolling for updates or watch TV all that often. And frankly, I don't really care what the critics and newscasters think because their assessments are a result of their bias - I try to avoid the subjective views of others in situations like this... not valuable to the process. I will take MY bias, and make my own decision.

2)the air in Denver was too thin
3) It was Bush's fault
Obama dropped the ball on Bengahzi costing 4 American lives.
Obama lied to the American People,

The Republicans---with the 2 Bushes in charge--- ran up the largest Deficit in the history of the U.S.A.
Romney said he was going to fix all of that without raising Taxes but he has no plan to do that or he would have mentioned his plan in the Debate.
Talk is easy when you don't have to prove that you have a plan.
If I was a Right Winger I would not be tempted to gloat over how Romney is going to cut the U.S.A. deficit when he has no plan.
I heard Romney say that he was going to bring the Democrats and Republicans together in the Congress.
That is wishful thinking when both parties are solidly entrenched in what they believe.
Over the last 4 years the Republicans made no attempt to work with Obama---What makes Romney think that the Democrats are going to work with him after what the Rep.Party members did to Obama.
As for the Debate---only the Election will tell who won and there is still 2 more debates to go.
