We are usually 50/50, but as we get closer to the election and all the US media is focused on either the economy or the election, there really is not much else going on except the World Series [which will pick up a few threads].

Considering this election is one of the more important things that will be happening in the world in this generation, it makes sense that we are about 80/20 right now.

It will get back to "normal" in December with regular new threads and blame already laid for the new guy, even before he gets sworn in.

What does that mean? Have you not been paying attention?

You can begin by starting a thread on how you would give each of us a fine blow job. Come on, put your head down and concentrate on it.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

There is a whole world out there you can induldge in

Like you said it will be the run up, the election, and the blame after. So what is new? Do the hookers leave the streets? Does the music industry come to a halt? Do people not have children anymore and god forbid the space programme is cancelled.

Having said that (700 billion for the rich) Maybe it's better cancel the space programme

Maybe you should concentrate on your sig

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

We're not talking second class here, we want only the best. It's allways best to write out a plan first.
