What’s Wrong With These People؟

According to the CBS post-‘debate’ snap poll “Obama edges Romney in second debate”

Poll of 525 uncommitted voters
Margin of error: ± 4%

Who Won the Debate?:
Obama 37%
Romney 30%
Tie 33%

Directly answered the questions he was asked:

Obama 55%
Romney 49%

Would do a better job helping the middle class:

Obama 56%
Romney 43%

Would do a better job on the economy:

Obama 34%
Romney 65%

How can some of these people say that Obama will do more for the middle class, but Romney would do a better job on the economy? If the middle class isn’t doing well, neither is the economy, because the middle class is the core of the economy. We aren’t going anywhere because there is no demand, and there is no demand because the middle class is losing ground and can’t afford to buy things.

If he hadn’t cared he could have gone in a taken a city vehicle to drive around with a Blood Alcohol Concentration of .15+ %, almost double the Florida limit of .08%.

If he is convicted the city says they won’t let him drive city vehicles.

The police were responding to complaints from the public about Mr. Jorgenson dangerous driving.

Notes In Passing

Apparently there was another of those joint press conferences that they call ‘debates’ in US politics. They are organized by the two major parties to get free media time to sell their approved, tested fabrications. The candidates of the other parties aren’t allowed to participate after Ross Perot proved it makes a difference to the success of minor party candidates.

Apparently Zero did well enough that Andrew Sullivan has been taken off the suicide watch list. [If you don’t know who Andrew Sullivan is, be glad, and don’t spoil your luck by finding out.]

Ringo won parole from the vet and is now out and about in the house. Actually, while she go anywhere in the house now, she chooses to sit on my wrist rest to prevent me from typing. I am hopeful she will decide she wants to go outside tomorrow.

Real Life is still busy, so I can’t spend a lot of time on the ‘Net, but it doesn’t seem like much of importance is happening.
