Ah November 1st, and new beginnings.
What new excuses will we hear from Obama?
How Obama had all the answers — has always had them — and the economy would be roaring if not for that pesky Congress.
More grand and glorious spreading of the blame for his four years of failure.
Perhaps a dash of the "evil rich people" and the "one percents" and how he'll make them pay.
Obama will inspire by telling the masses how this is about "you the people" and only you can make things move forward. (obviously he can't)
Will his next speech be The Gettysburg Address, I Have a Dream and We Shall Fight on the Beaches all rolled into one.
Will he promised to cut the deficit in half again if he gets a second term and then propose more trillion dollar deficits.
Will he promise again that lobbyists won’t work in the White House but hand out more waivers to work there.
Will he cut earmarks or double them again.
Will he once again tax those making less than 250,000....oh wait it's 200,000 now.
Will he finally close Guantanamo.
Will unemployment numbers be lowered again due to millions more giving up.
Will Obama buy a new Chevy Volt.
Will Obama ever end the Bush policies that he has kept in place.
So many questions but thankfully so little time left for Obama.

If you follow closely enough, you'll notice they are the same crew who have bad mouthed Obama to no end, yet are all over you when you happen to remind them of their previous hero Dubya!!
It's more than a coincidence that Dubya, Cheney, Palin, Rove, Rumsfeld, McCain et.al are strangely absent for the campaign to elect Romney.

Nothing personal just pointing out the voting record of the longtime Ward 4 Councillor .
Politicians are like underwear every once awhile they need changing.
He is an elected Ward 4 Councillor and does answers to taxpayers of Ward 4 on election day.

I am a happy man, today. Regardless of to to and fro of political bickering and insults, to which I am a part, when one's child or grandchild has a serious health threat, everything pales in comparison. For the last weeks we have been in a state of heightened anxiety, which has been greatly alleviated with news today. I won't go into detail but even if you are unsure about a mole and doctors or nurse practioners say "It looks fine to me", persist! As the Cancer doctor said today, "Melanomas are chameleons". Catch them early!

Big Brother I cetainly was no fan of Tony. Nothing personal just the fact that we got nothing while he was in. I'm no fan of Hayes either for the same reason. I would take Obama over Mitt and his morons any day of the week. So please don't lump all of us with the goon squad.

Congratulations on your good news shakespeare. Reading between the lines of your last post, I bet you have been through a load of anxiety. I've been in a similar situation my self. I'm really glad it's working out for you.

Grump Hayes did nothing on City Council he was just another one of the lapdogs.Now he is just a lapdog to the PM.
Do not get me wrong here.I like Harper,I just cannot stand lapdogs, brown nosers,and butt kissers.
This city council is no different than councils we have had over the past 20 years.
The only Councillor that is really for the people is Frank Manzo.
Councillor Frank Fata, is starting to wake up and speak his mind.
The others are all there just for the pay check every two weeks and all the freebies and food they can take home after the council meetings.

Grump and JC...I'm not pounding the pulpit in favor of Tony. Having said that, it was Tony Bashing (remember Tony 'do nothing') galore for way too long, ad nauseum. Now, we get the man connected to the party and well, not much yet. And I don't expect much. At least though, keep what we had!!
Tony was/is a good person who believed in grass roots action. And he delivered on that.

Events such as you allude to sure do put things into perspective.
The topics we discuss and argue in this sandbox day in and day out are of little importance in our daily and immediate lives . Every now and again one might glance upon a nugget of brilliance and sanity and that is for the most part, why I peek in here on a regular basis .
But I've been always keenly aware that strong family ties and cultivating relationships of friends and other folks that actually matter in one's life is far more important than discussing esoteric topics presented to us via all sources of media.
Having said that, the View Room is a form of community and we have all sorts in here. From the village idiot(s) to the fundamentalist nut case, the sexually depraved and a duck.
Having said that, I am glad things seem to have turned out well for whomever you were referring to and , not being religious and therefore I don't pray, but my thoughts are with Skipper Dave and I hope things went well for him.

Here's a few nuggets that I actually read today.
-consumer confidence in the US is the highest in 5 years;
-MA was 47th in job creation under Romney;
-NY mayor Bloomberg endorsed Obama;
-NY Times "...Romney blithely deceiving voters desperate for clarity and truth."

Saultontman, I think I have all those designations figured out. The village idiots are anyone with a conservative viewpoint and any other viewpoint excluding atheism, the fundamentalist nut case is me, the sexually depraved refers to himself and his inflatable doll, and the duck is, of course, our morning greeter, jean-paul.

I have to leave it to you spellmister, you have a keen intellect.
Having admitted to the fact that you are a "fundamentalist"...i.e a true believer of the literal interpretation of the "Book of Gloom" it vexes me to think that at the same time you consider yourself a staunch opponent of socialism .
Believing in God in all it's demented forms is in fact the ultimate of socialist submission. Think about it...you're created, owned, your actions and even thoughts are supervised 24/7 by a central committee (leader/God) the outcome of your life and humankind is pre-planned. Illnesses, suffering, death and destruction are all planned in. Furthermore, without God you'd have no moral compass..in essence..an animal. or so the saying goes.
He has a divine plan, like the central planning committee of any self respecting socialist state.
You sure are an interesting fellar and I can't wait to down a few with you sometime soon..."in vino veritas" , but in order to do that and consume copious amounts of spirits you'll either have to agree to spend the night with me and Darlene, or you have to provide shelter for me and let me sleep in your shed.
Having said that, my latest vapulations directed at you are by no means personal, but merely provide for heated discussions.
And one more thing...I have always wondered why Jesus didn't wait another 2000 years or so to spread the message. I mean, a couple of millenniums are mere seconds in the cosmic sense. Why not come now?..imagine the following he would have with facebook, twitter, youtube?
Someone would have him on his cell phone walking on water and raising the dead.....Wolf Blitzer could comment live on the crucifixion...imagine the ratings....

Before I forget,
why is the past more sacred than the present?
I think it is because it is mysterious and not readily held up for scrutiny.
We in the present are as salient if not more so than anyone having lived before us.
But for mystery's sake, ancient myths are more regal by mere distance.

And before I retire , and lay myself down, dreaming of Satan.....let me tell you that I am an ardent fan of the Old Testament...that book kicks ass.... that's a God of my liking...vengeful, jealous, brutal and unforgiving.
But I am at a loss with His preoccupation with foreskins and pork.

No. Not really.
"Darlene" was a made up name I came up with when describing the ubiquitous , overweight dame, clad in spandex, shopping at Walmart with a plethora of ethnically diverse, snot-nosed kids in tow, loading up her 1993 Plymouth Voyager with a leaking water pump with Doritoes, jumbo sized sanitary pads and several gallons of Javex.
Then someone in this room suggested that Darlene might be my Blow-up sex doll I must have ordered from Costco....and I went with it. The rest is history.
