    I cheered on our democratic, first black president.  

    Im disappointed to hear this brother Brent. You had to know that it was a disaster in the making.
     

    Not happy with the results

    My brother, it could not have ended any other way.  

    Brother @SGH , I regret that I am only allowed one vote to agree with you here.  Your post deserves at least half a dozen agrees and as many likes.  Eight years ago, I also knew the disaster was somewhat inevitable.   When the spineless republicans in Congress just stepped aside and let the American people get trampled by this socialist president, the outcome was certain economic turmoil.  It's a good thing his foreign policy was rock solid crappy because that helped distract people from the stellar cesspool economy.
    Whenever I read stuff like that I swear some of us must be living in parallel universes.
    Yeah?  Since the economy took a crap in 2008, I have received exactly one pay raise which was previously scheduled.  The raise was more than offset by immediate  increased healthcare costs.  I have taken a handful of pay cuts since then.  We've had a bunch of folks laid off and they're not coming back.  I'm glad you're doing so well brother, but some of us are not as fortunate as you.
    I get that the crash/recession of 08 hit a lot of people hard and many folks may still be in a pinch.

    What I don't buy is blaming Obama.

    Housing prices in most areas have recovered to pre-crash levels, mortgage rates are very low, the stock market has doubled, yadda yadda yadda.
    How about job killing gubmint regulations as imposed by the executive branch through the bureaucracy?  Do you think all the unprecedented numbers of executive orders are to make it easier for business to hire people?  

    Its all a matter of judgement of how the American people are best served.  When the doofus in charge sees global warming as the biggest threat to people rather than radical Islam (oops I said it), then there is a serious problem with judgement and priority.  Radical Islam is actively working to wipe western civilization from the face of the Earth.  They will do what they can to kill us and destroy our economy, but let's concentrate on reducing cow farts because they're deadly.  If cow fart reduction makes our economy weak, so be it.
  • Re: Just out of curiosity do any of you have a secret family recipe that you do not share?

    A few Christmases ago, my sister took my Mom's recipe book, transcribed it in MS Word and printed copies for everyone in the family.  My Aunt's lemon bars recipe is not shared outside the family.  I honor that.
    Why? What could it possibly harm? Is there a business involved? I just find it sort of weird and narcissistic. 
    Right or wrong, I observe the family tradition.  That's why.
  • Re: SmokeWare Cap v1 vs. v2

    Personally, I think Chrysler makes the best minivan.
  • Re: Remember now thy hippy, and honor him.

    I wonder if Trump asked Petraeus today what really happened on 9/11.  Or if he had heard that all of the Sandy Hook kids were just child actors.
    That's despicable.
