Someone should notify certain other members on the forum to review this article.  No doubt they'll find plenty to criticize and will conclude that it's either a con-job or a hoax.

All the while being concerned about a 401K.   :tongue2:


Too bad no ping, I don't like to be appearing dancing behind one's back.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

the NBC poll that is making so much noise today,

Do you mean the one where democrats were represented something like 40% commiecrats to 25% republicans?  The one where a major part of the sample were government employees?  Far be it for me to suggest, though, this poll was rigged to make things look positive for democrats, unnerve (more than they normally are, republicans and rinos) in negotiation, and give the media something to keep cutting in to the republicans.  NBC is an "honorable" organization. :tongue2:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
