    Since there is only one qualified candidate for public office that you like and support, why don't YOU run? Everyone else you are going to whine about.

    You are not whining? Name your poison, who do you want? Please be realistic, Palin is not a viable candidate...
    as for me, I am not allowed to run, I passed both the intellect test and the sanity test...and my birth certificate is out of New Jersy, and that makes it highly suspect.
    Who is it that, according to you, I think is the only one qualified?

    BTW, I got a call yesterday from Romney's PAC. They wanted money. I told them that Milt is out of touch with the common man, that I would have voted for him last time, but McCain got the nod. Now, he is too beholden to the party to really care about leading the country. He won't even speak ill of Palin....

    I want a free enteprise, pro busienss candidate from either side and since it won't be coming from the Democrat side then I will wait to see who the option are. All have baggage but like with every election I will vote for the one with the closest overall views to my point of view. In 2000, Bush vs. Gore, I voted for Bush, 2004, Bush vs. Kerry, I voted for Bush, 2008 McCain vs. Obama, I voted for McCain. Did those candidates that I voted for have baggage, you bet, but the alternative was much worse.

    Right now, ANY Republican would be better than Obama. He didn't have the qualifications and experience to be President then and nothing has changed. I will vote for the better candidate and whoever it is will be better than Obama.

    Check Groupon. Google is considering or already bought them for like $1-5B dollars, insane. I don't know about her specific website, but if you build a large audience and are able to market through it, that's got value. if you can scale it and grow grow grow, seems like it could be acquisition worthy if we start seeing pooling of similar companies.

    So far, the site is making a good income...
    There is some company out there that is trying to buy the smaller sites. They have made an offer, but based on current income, the offer was way too little.

    Unless you have some proof of what you say, you are just blowing smoke, as usual.
