Go ahead, I dare you to guess who this lady voted for:
A NEIGHBOR stopped by the other day to talk about her Thanksgiving plans. Last year, she didn’t really give the meal much thought. She bought a turkey that was already cooked, and asked guests to bring the side dishes.
This year is different, she said. Between the intensity of the election and the uncertainty of the economy, the meal means more to her. She plans to cook everything herself, using as much local food as she can and making even the pies from scratch.
Can I wish her a dose of food poisoning? Just a mild case?
CEA kindly supplied this link about the three auto chairmen (each) flying private jets down to Washington to plead for money. If begging doesn’t work out for these clowns they can always get jobs with the financial industry awarding bonuses or representing the Greenwich YMCA in its efforts to discriminate against cripples. The original “Best and the Brightest” brought us Viet Nam. This generation proves equally adept at ruining major industries like autos and finance. At least they’re not running our government – although, thinking about what’s ahead, that might be an improvement.
But too good not to mention it. Today’s Best of the web reports on a poll of Obama voters:
A new poll from Zogby International shows Obama voters to be shockingly ignorant of political trivia involving their own candidate:
83% failed to correctly answer that Obama had won his first election by getting all of his opponents removed from the ballot, and 88% did not correctly associate Obama with his statement that his energy policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry. Most (56%) were also not able to correctly answer that Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground.
Nearly three quarters (72%) of Obama voters did not correctly identify Biden as the candidate who had to quit a previous campaign for President because he was found to have plagiarized a speech, and nearly half (47%) did not know that Biden was the one who predicted Obama would be tested by a generated international crisis during his first six months as President. . . .
57% of Obama voters were unable to correctly answer that Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.
Wait, it gets worse. The test was multiple choice!
EPA seeks to fine real estate firm $1.2 million for violation of lead disclosure law. That’s 34 violations spread over five or six states and thousands of transactions: $29,400+ for each violation. Understand that these forms essentially do nothing because they permit the seller to simply check “no knowledge of lead either way” and leave the tenant or buyer to find out for himself. The rule may be worthless but the fines for not having the proper paperwork are horrendous, so look for your agent to be even more of a nitpicker. And then the world will be safe for democracy.
