    1: I fully believe that he was born in Hawaii. I've posted to that effect many times defending Obama against birthers.

    2: Don't care what his religious background is and never have.

    3: Its a valid question posted on a forum about debating politics. Obama gave billions out to keep businesses from failing. If he is to be consistant then he should do so with all other buisnesses that are about to fail. Otherwise he is showing governmental favortism.

    Too sad,although we all know that most of modern people prefer to purchase books by Internet retailer.

The superstores sort of took the intimacy out of books and those of us who love paper books may once again have an opportunity to go to a local book store and buy books without the superstore hubub.

    Barnes & Noble is probably the last brick and mortar super book reseller. Any other ones left?



    Until all the hipsters get wind of it, make it the newest fashion statement, buy up all the books with thier parents money and leave you paying crazy dollars for used booke..... Mark my words.... You heard it here first.

    Not to be a vulture or anything...

    But does this mean they're going to be selling off their inventory on the cheap?

    You shouldn't be. It's a question that should be easily answered by yourself. But just in case, see also Enron (2001), WorldCom (2002), Refco (2005), Lehman Bros (2008), and WaMu (2008). No bailouts for those companies, either.
