I mentioned that, unless he made over $200,000 the odds were in favor that he would actually have less taxes. And then added that the Bush tax cuts mainly helped those who made ABOVE $200,000. Still not voting for Obama. He just was against taxes. Somehow I don't think he thought his position through.

This was a man who, in the best year of his life will not make over $30K in reportable income. Now I have this feeling that his "OTHER" income from agriculture might be a bit higher but NOT taxable nonetheless.
This Second Great Depression may do the trick. I'm really starting to feel McCain/Palin. I want some real disaster going on.

Someone asked me at dinner this evening, 'don't you think the past 4-5-6-7 years is obvious enough' and I said 'obviously not' in that the race is currently tied.

Barack's a far better candidate than Kerry was, but he's hardly run a stellar campaign it must be admitted. It's almost as if he's forgotten himself; that incandescent persona and impressive intellect which brought him this far in the first place. Too much Party stuff, focus groups, triangulation. We expect better.

But we could also do with something so bad it would cure this nation of Republicanism for a generation. McCain/Palin could be that. The sea change effected by FDR was enabled by the fact that he didn't take office until 1933. Not even the Jayhawks of the time were able to deny the disaster all around them. The stars didn't align the same way this time.
