Personal Liberty Digest™
Nice job, Barry. Scraping the bottom of the barrel for SecDef. Bono "plugs in." All this — plus: panties! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
The fiscal cliff draweth nigh. A lame-duck Congress and a triumphant President have six weeks to effect a deal that will keep the country from plunging over it. And right now, while both sides pay lip service to the idea of compromise, it looks like they’ll play chicken right up to the edge.
I predicted Mitt Romney would win big. What went wrong? I’ve been asked nonstop since Election Day, “Was your prediction based on hope or bias?” My prediction was based on a combination of scientific evidence and common sense that would tell you that in this economy, no President could be re-elected.
The day after the re-election of President Barack Obama, the stock market tanked with the Dow Jones industrial average falling more than 300 points in the first two hours of trading and closing the day below 13,000 for the first time since Aug. 2.
This is a lesson on how the major media can slant facts and give them new meaning. Let’s start with the explosive facts, as revealed in a Washington Post story. In 2001, Al Gore was worth less than $2 million. Now, in 2012, it’s estimated he’s locked up a nice neat $100 million. How did he do it?
Liberty is seldom lost in one fell swoop. It is eroded away over time. Then, one day, a nation that was once free finds itself in bondage. It is called gradualism, and it reduces the shock potential and numbs the senses to the reality that is transpiring all around.
Well, so much for the seers, sages, pundits and prognosticators who predicted an easy victory for Republicans on Election Day. It turned out to be anything but. For a lot of us, our worst fears are coming true.
What a stunning and miserable day. Ronald Reagan gave us “Morning in America” — as in a new sunny morning. I feel like I just woke up in “Mourning in America” — as in mourning for the loss of this great country. And it’s all because, in politics, “nice” doesn’t work.
A 50/50 Nation voted to tack two more years of gridlock onto the two we’ve just endured by sending the undocumented White House usurper back to the White House along with a divided legislative branch.
The Nation’s future rests upon the hope that President Barack Obama’s leadership will somehow get better if we can chill over this result of this election. That is not much consolation except to say maybe we were doomed before this election. Also, what we do now and over the coming months will be a test for American democracy — the longest lived one in the world.
