    What do you do……raise the ceilings, or pump out the ****?

    Close the friggen door, get on my laptop and make sure my subsidized “gubmet Federal flood insurance" is current. Nine out of ten times that’s what causes a sewer to backup like you described.

    Eat enough of that gumment cheese and you can also have those sorts of backups.

    I'm holding off another day or so. They've moved the track east a couple times, so it's looking better for a miss. If we're still in the cone Wed. morning I'll have to move her farther inland.

    Other people agree with me. Do whatever it takes to make Obama fail, has meaning dude. Take off your racist blinders and look past your cross on the lawn. And don't you lie to me dude. Don't even try it.
    Don't type angry! LOL

    This is pretty funny stuff.

    Eventually the real racists, the deep down angry racists show up. Unfortunately there is no cure.

    No, they didn't. Nor did they really step up when it was being created. Few did as democrats and REPBLUICANS spent, and spent, and spent, without ever considering hard enough how to pay for it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    There was no grass roots movement to cut spending until Obama took spending to a new level. Never in modern history has debt been raised to the current level of almost 100% of GDP. What you and others fail to discuss is the 3.7 trillion dollar budget and why we need it. All I see are people like you worried about how much revenue the govt. gets. Where is that liberal compassion that is concerned about the taxes that people pay and the waste, fraud, and abuse of those tax dollars? I have a hard time understanding why anyone would call for more money to go to the govt. through higher taxes with this kind of out of control spending and lack of accountability?

    Exactly! No movement before Obama. Just massive debt before Obama. I'll other spin why that is to suit their own agendas, but there was massive spending and no movement. Not even during Bush's tax cut and spend days.
