So, Al Jazeera is reporting that there will be an attack sooner, rather than later.

An interesting way to divide the United States.  Strength still in power while weakness waits in the wings.

The sitting president responding with the military while the president
in waiting is whining that the only way to deal with terror is to pick
up the bodies as soon as possible and asking what can be done to
accomodate those who want to kill us.

How do you negotiate with sombody who wants to kill you?

“Could you please wait till after the BCS Championship game?”

"Could you just blind me instead of killing me?"

Just what do those of you who voted for weakness propose?

But to stay on topic.  With a weakling in the White House why should the stock market ever mount a sustained rally?

Every day that weakness rules is a day that could feature 1,000 suicide
bombers going off at the same time in 1,000 McDonalds from sea to
shining sea.

Know the adage, "The market cannot climb a wall of worry?"

Why should anybody with investments not cash them in now and wait out the coming four years–go to cash.

One dollar in cash will be worth one dollar in cash when sanity returns
to the United States, what other asset can we be sure of holding its
value, much less growing?

Lead.  For bullets.  And sinkers.

I think we’re going to go to “Obama Bucks.”   They are stored digitally on the “security network.”  Every night, it will calculate how many Obama bucks each one of us have.  It will then re-allocate the bucks around until everyone has the exact same amount. If you need more Obama bucks than you have, you will need to request an audience with your “community organizer.”  He/She/It will decide your request based on how “fair” it is.  If it is deemed too good for you (really nice car, nice house, etc.), then your request will be denied. 

  Obama will replace "Hail to Chief" with "We're Gonna Party Like It's 1984."   Sorry, I just had to vent.

I have question on this whole socialism thing.  So, the point is to make everyone equal right?  Does that include where we live?  Cause I live in the 'burbs of STL.  Nothing fancy.  Guy I know lives in the mountains in CO.  Sweet views.  Another guy lives in CA on the Monterey penninsula.  Pebble Beach, Spyglass, Spanish Bay all within a short drive.  If we’re all the same, do I get to pick where I live?  Cause if you have a better view than I do, I don’t think it’s fair and I want some of that property to be redistributed to me.  I’m all for everyone making the same amount of money, but if your house is better than mine, that’s just not right.

Sorry, everyone that did not vote for Obama gets to live facing a landfill in Appalachia. The really nice property is for Obama supporters only.
