STAY CALM! HERE ARE THE BIGGEST DEMOCRAT FREAK OUTS FROM BUSH’S 2004 RE-ELECTION VICTORY

Conservatives, you think your world is ending? Check out how the left reacted just eight years ago when George Bush won re-election.  End of the world seemed pretty close.
 1. LEAVE THE COUNTRY!
These celebrities all declared that they would leave the country if Bush was victorious.

Latinos: We Voted, Now We Want Obama's Help

A coalition of latinos say they worked for President Barack Obama's re-election and now they're asking for his help: They want comprehensive immigration reform to keep families together.
"We need justice now for 11 million people in this country who overwhelmingly supported the president's reelection and now it’s time for payback," said Gustavo Andrada of Casa In Action today at a rally outside of the White House.
Veronica Savaria lives in Maryland with her family. She campaigned for  Maryland's Dream Act which voters approved on Tuesday granting in state tuition for the children of undocumented immigrants. But she says she still lives in fear.

NYC’s Bloomberg Announces Plan To Ration Gas Using Odd-Even License Plate Numbers

Oh, Bloomie! You and your harebrained schemes! Where do we start with this one… New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced this afternoon that his office is instituting an interesting plan for rationing gas in the city, in order to deal with fuel shortages caused by Hurricane Sandy. Judging from the “Wha huh but huh?” responses we’re seeing on Twitter thus far, there’s bound to be some confusion.

FOLLOWING OBAMA VICTORY, U.S. BACKS NEW U.N. ARMS TREATY TALKS

Just hours after President Barack Obama secured a second term in the White House, the United States supported the U.N. in its bid Wednesday to reignite talks over an international treaty regulating the $70 billion global conventional arms trade, according to Reuters:
U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.
The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States – along with Russia and other major arms producers – said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

What Did You Expect from Short Term Thinkers?

Obviously, what we’ve long suspected has been proven true. The takers now officially outnumber the makers. It’s human nature to want what others have and not want to do what others did to get it, but Obama has taken that to a whole new level by fostering the belief that breathing is enough to guarantee you food, housing, education, and a cell phone.
One of the biggest voting blocks for Obama continues to be single women, many of whom are single mothers. Why? I have a very simple explanation. Short term thinking. Think about it: single mothers are usually single mothers because they listened to some smooth talking guy who said all the right things and never followed through. They continue to give the loser chance after chance, foolishly believing that “this time, things will be different”. Hmm...notice a pattern here?
There’s a never ending stream of shows on Lifetime, etc., that cater to that crowd. The victim crowd. The “I can’t believe I’m in this situation, and someone needs to fix it” crowd. The people who will make one bad decision after another, never comprehending the responsibility THEY bear for the outcome. Of course they voted for Obama. He’s the perfect man for them. He’s not responsible for anything, either.

AN INFORMED ELECTORATE? YOU WON’T BELIEVE HOW LITTLE THESE OBAMA VOTERS KNOW ABOUT OUR GOV’T

A three block line weaved through a quaint neighborhood in South Boston, each person waiting to cast their vote at the polling place inside the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology.  This is an austere, historic and heavily liberal section of Boston (generously assuming there are some non-liberal parts of Boston).  Signs for Elizabeth Warren and buttons proudly proclaiming “Students for Obama” were in abundance.

This reporter called on some of those in line, asking some simple questions concerning why they showed up today to  perform their civic duty.  The answers usually began with a declaration of unwavering support for the president.  So what were the issues that animated them in the campaign?  Their answers were largely couched in generalities, warm pockets of feel-good social “rights” issues, that sounded line-and-verse like Obama campaign talking points.

IRAN FIRED AT US DRONE... 5 DAYS BEFORE ELECTION

FOX NEWS: Iran fired on an unarmed U.S. drone last week as it was hovering in international airspace, the Pentagon announced Thursday. Spokesman George Little said the incident occurred Nov. 1 at 4:50 a.m. ET. He said the unarmed, unmanned drone was conducting "routine surveillance" over the Persian Gulf when it was "intercepted" by Iran. He said the MQ1 Predator drone, which was not hit, was not in Iranian airspace. Little said the U.S. government has protested to the Iranians. Asked about how the U.S. could respond, he said: "We have a wide range of options from diplomatic to military."

Military Absentee Ballots Delivered One Day Late, Would Have Swung Election For Romney


WASHINGTON, DC – Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.

Viable Sea Turtle Nest Discovered

BERLIN – On Friday, Oct. 26, before the onset of high winds and waves from Hurricane Sandy, biological technicians and staff from the Marine Animal Rescue at the National Aquarium in Baltimore excavated a loggerhead sea turtle nest on the north end of Assateague Island National Seashore (AINS). The nest contained two live hatchlings and 160 potentially viable eggs.
When sea turtle hatchlings emerge from the nest, they look for residual light in the night sky reflecting off the ocean. However, in areas where there is ample artificial light in the night sky, newly hatched turtles move toward that light source instead of the ocean. In preparation for the newly hatched loggerheads, Harrison’s Harbor Watch agreed to turn off the lights on their property that shine toward the north end of Assateague Island.

“We know that many patrons go to Harrison’s Harbor Watch restaurant specifically for the beautiful night view of the inlet and the northern part of Assateague. We truly appreciate that the owners of Harrison’s Harbor Watch turned their lights out for the loggerheads,” said Trish Kicklighter, Superintendent of AINS.

Although the loggerhead turtle nest was excavated just days before Hurricane Sandy came ashore, the nest excavation was already scheduled for that day.

Life in Prison for Gabrielle Giffords Shooter

The man behind the 2011 shooting rampage in Tucson that left six dead and wounded 13, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Giffords hugged her husband as U.S. District Judge Larry Burns read the sentence of seven life terms—one for each death and one for the attempt on Giffords' life— plus 140 years, while Jared Loughner showed little response. He had previously agreed to the sentence in a deal that spared him from a federal death penalty.
The sentencing hearing was the first time Giffords came face to face with the man who tried to kill her. She chose not to speak.

My Thoughts On The Election: The Devil You Know


Regular readers know that I voted for the Libertarian candidate for President, former Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson.  I outlined my reasons for this choice in several posts, most definitively in my piece Meet Gary Johnson: The Libertarian for President Polling at 7% in Colorado.  While I was already excited for my first act of Presidential civil disobedience, I didn’t realize how truly liberating it would feel until the next morning.  Many Americans voted for “the lesser of two evils” and were disappointed in the result.  This must have been an emotional double whammy in the sense that not only did the guy you disliked so much that you were willing to vote for a candidate you didn’t like win, but you didn’t vote your conscience.  Personally, I didn’t have to deal with either emotion because I voted for the person I liked the most despite residing in a swing state.  What allowed me to do this was the complete and total recognition that under both major candidates America loses.  My major issues are:
1) The Federal Reserve scam and Wall Street theft.
2) Civil liberties and the destruction of the Constitution.
3) Our aggressive foreign policy and imperial wars abroad that help only the oligarchs and impoverish the masses.

BOLTON: CLINTON OUT, KERRY IN AT STATE

Veteran diplomat and former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton says Hillary Clinton soon will be out at the State Department and Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., will succeed her as secretary of state.
With the 2012 Election Day over, changes now are expected in several offices in Washington, including the Department of Justice, where Attorney General Eric Holder told law school students at the University of Baltimore that he does not know if he will stay.
According to the CBS report, he said, “That’s something that I’m in the process now of trying to determine. I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?”

HOW MANY BUSINESSES HAVE ANNOUNCED CLOSINGS OR LAYOFFS SINCE OBAMA WON A SECOND TERM?

However, stock prices are not the only thing taking a hit. It appears that the job market is also suffering. In the last 48 hours, the following major corporations have announced layoffs in America (each is linked to the news release with details):

Salisbury Transmission


Hi Joe,

I'm a frequent reader of your blog and this is my first time actually writing in. Monday I dropped my car off to Salisbury transmission to have my clutch and a few other related parts replaced. I brought my own parts and left it for a few days as they were booked. While my car was there, they kept in contact with me the whole way and explained any problems they encountered. After picking my car up today I noticed that not only did they charge 50% less than other shops, they fixed my exhaust leak, cable quadrant and even my gas cap at no extra charge. As icing on the cake, they even detailed my car. I cannot be anymore pleased with a business that goes above and beyond. Their staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. In an economy like this, we could use more business minded people like them that appreciates their customers. I will be returning.

Sincerely,
Patrick M.

Governor O'Malley Is A Criminal?

Someone posted this on Martin Omalleys facebook page.......

Governor Martin O'Malley is a criminal:

Martin should be federally indicted on charges of aiding, abetting, harboring illegal immigrants under the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act.
Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii).

Perhaps we should start a citizens petition for action?

It is a violation of law for any person to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection in any place, including any building or means of transportation, any alien who is in the United States in violation of law. HARBORING MEANS ANY CONDUCT THAT TENDS TO SUBSTANTIALLY FACILITATE AN ALIEN TO REMAIN IN THE U.S. ILLEGALLY.

Retail's New Grinch: A Sandy-Snarled Supply Chain


It's the ultimate ripple effect.

Super Storm Sandy disrupted transportation. Everything from air to land to sea came to a halt.

It disrupted power. At the peak, more than 8.5 million houses and businesses along the eastern seaboard lost power. Without power, gas stations became inoperable and that led to traffic jams whenever gasoline was available.

While no storm is ever welcome, Sandy’s timing, along with the nor’easter that followed, couldn't be worse for retailers, who are preparing for their busiest time of the year.

The Finest Officer In "Peed-mont"


A hefty fine for such a wee pee. A 3-year-old boy got his mother a $2,500 ticket in Oklahoma for going pee-pee in his own front yard. "I said really, he is 3 years old, and (the officer) said it doesn't matter – it’s public urination,” grandmother Jennifer Warden said.

A hefty fine for such a wee pee. A 3-year-old boy got his mother a $2,500 ticket in Oklahoma for going pee-pee in his own front yard. “I said really, he is 3 years old, and (the officer) said it doesn’t matter – it’s public urination,” grandmother Jennifer Warden said.
Talk about a big-ticket bathroom break!
An Oklahoma mom got fined thousands of dollars when her 3-year-old son pulled down his pants to urinate on the family’s property. The potty-training toddler’s effort to not wet himself earned his mother a $2,500 ticket, the family said.
The boy, Dillan, was playing in their front yard on a rural road in Piedmont when nature called.
“Dillan pulled down his pants to pee outside, I guess, and the cop pulled up and asked for my license and told me he was going to give me a ticket for public urination,” Ashley Warden, the boy’s mother toldCBS Oklahoma City affiliate News 9.

"Sir, we're here to help you," one of the officers says back to the man.  “Sir, lay on the ground.  Drop the knife!  Drop the knife!  Taser!  Taser!”
And then, just as the man lunges with the knife, this state-of-the-art training scenario freezes, offering a glimpse of something these officers all hoped they wouldn’t ever see again.

How Obama Won The Election

The Obama campaign's vaunted "ground game" lived up to its hype Tuesday night, taking Mitt Romney's team completely off-guard and exposing the GOP's deep structural weaknesses with the American electorate. 
The front page story in The New York Times today details how the Obama campaign built up this superior field organization:
In Chicago, the campaign recruited a team of behavioral scientists to build an extraordinarily sophisticated database packed with names of millions of undecided voters and potential supporters. The ever-expanding list let the campaign find and register new voters who fit the demographic pattern of Obama backers and methodically track their views through thousands of telephone calls every night.
That allowed the Obama campaign not only to alter the very nature of the electorate, making it younger and less white, but also to create a portrait of shifting voter allegiances. The power of this operation stunned Mr. Romney’s aides on election night, as they saw voters they never even knew existed turn out in places like Osceola County, Fla. “It’s one thing to say you are going to do it; it’s another thing to actually get out there and do it,” said Brian Jones, a senior adviser.

The Cost of Thanksgiving Dinner, 2012

Shoppers often fret about what they perceive is the ever-rising costs for the goods they need to buy each day. This  year, however, they have at least one holiday blessing to be thankful for: the cost of a turkey dinner and all the trimmings has risen only slightly from last year. 

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s survey, turkey dinner and all the fixings will cost about $49.48, or just 28 cents more than it did last year. 

Last year, consumers were hit with one of the biggest price increases for traditional Thanksgiving trimmings in years, after poor weather shrank the size of U.S. crops.
