Out of the Blue

One positive aspect of the expansion of Thursday Night Football is that when your team suffers a tough loss on Monday night like mine did last night, it provides more of an opportunity to try and put it behind you, as by this morning we are only two days away from turning the page and moving on to week 14. In the meantime: Ouch. I shudder to think what a terror RG3 will be after he's no longer a rookie, as he already has the game of a seasoned veteran.

I think the government is fairly arrogant to declare that the world will not end on Dec 21st...;) I mean, I think the chances are overwhelmingly in favor of the world continuing on past Dec 21st, but should the forces of nature, or the planning of sentients who are far in advance of us fairly primitive earthlings decide otherwise...well, just what can the government do about that? Not a whole lot, I'd say...:D

Anything they can do to take the sheeples eyes off of the real issues, they will discuss until blue in the face. They knew about ths fiscal cliff 2 years ago. And at that time, they also knew about the debt ceiling, etc. It was brought up at a WH press interview by some 20 something dork from CNN or some news agency. They ignored him and now we are where we are.

All of this could have been solved a year+ ago. Nothing good will come of it and the middle class will be punished while Senators, lawmakers, etc live in their palaces and have no idea what the real world is like, all the while pushing agendas and policies on the working class.....

anyway. cheers.

/in all honesty - allowing everything to expire and keeping us in the recession would be a good thing. A reality check is fast approaching. Our gubmint is the new housing bubble. Just as people couldn't afford 1M dollar homes, our gubmint can't sustain it's rate of spend without printing money and borrowing from China. What will make it stop?

Don't need to look far to be upset
US banks post $37.6 billion in third-quarter profits
Los Angeles Times - ‎19 minutes ago‎

Four years after a massive federal bailout, banks are recording near-record profits - a development welcomed by regulators but met with fresh demands by critics that the financial firms do more to benefit mainstream America.
