Well, after all 168 registered voters made their ballot marks--nothing new except one newly elected county Legislator replaced some dead weight in that role for our district. Nice move there in Erie County Sam:) I don't think the elections proved much at all Larry--I personally will not project a bunch of negative nonsense--time will tell--2014 is a bit down the road. Just sayin:)

Sad thing in my little burg is all the (even older than I) biddies that have been sitting there as poll workers for decades have decided they have had enough. My wife got on two elections or so ago when a neighbor asked for help, now because somebody wrote her in :oops: she's gonna be judge of elections but there isn't anyone to help. Lazy republican women 30 some years of doing it & chasing everyone else away so now since they don't like things they decide to quit. That's the problem with America people think just because they are in their 70s & 80s they can quit working, just wait until the reps get rid of SSI & all them other entitlements (except their own) we'll also be working till we die since we only have one way out. :roll:

I disagree. Virginia is a prime example of why Obamacare should be used to point out what a miserable life under Socialist rule is like. a 12pt lead wiped out almost entirely in a few weeks since the Train wreck rolled out.
It was pointed out correctly that a 3rd party Mole was slipped in to syphon off votes ( although it was a TX. Liberal Bundler the real funding was funneled to him through Geo. Soros).
The RNC establishment was almost as complicit in the Loss as Soros for chrissakes.

Millions of people are already feeling the effects of this awful Law, come 2014 it ain't going to be better and I'll venture it'll prolly be worse....much worse.

There is a reason vulnerable Liberals had an emergency meeting with President A-hole yesterday trying to make him postpone his trashed Law until after next years election.



According to one of the radio stations last night was saying that only 15% were for Cuccinelli according to exit polls. So if that was their plan it failed. :D

Who is working till they are 70 or 80?

Shiaaaaat! There is a motorcycle, tent, and a lot of fishing poles waiting on my retirement. And it will be LONG before I am 70 or 80 I can guarantee that. There are a lot of bass lakes between PA and CA and I plan in spending time on all of them.

My father is 74 and still working 4days a week thanks to the flood of 2011. He did not sit back like a lot of Sandy and Katrina victims waiting and bitching about it for the government to rebuild. He rebuilt and spent his retirement to do so.
I will probably work as long as I can because I like it, and with 3 more yrs of Obama I will probably need to anyway.



Edit . Oh yea FBHO :mad:

Christie was congratulated by Obama. That primes him to become the Republican candidate for President who can reach across barriers and garner votes from both sides. But in reality, on election day in 2016 the conservatives will abandon him (mostly by staying home), and the Democrats (who will vote for him in the primaries in the many States where crossing over is permitted to assure that he is the Republican candidate they will run against, as is their conniving way) will clearly abandon him also, and he will get crushed in the general election. All part of Obama's plan in adopting him as a good buddy.

Anyone with a 4 year degree and a clean record can walk into the Civil Service office, sit down and take a computer generated test, score high enough, and get the same gig. Oh, and the test is free of charge.

Out of every 10 we hire, 2 or 3 stay on. Not everyone seems to find it as cushy a job as some think it is... 8-)

The bad economy and the downfall of society as a whole is simply job security for me. I like parents that don't spank their kids. They are building future clients.

so many bass and so little time !! :)

go for it if ya can, i don't think anybody on their last breath said they wished they would have worked more.

i'll probably keep working until i can't walk, just not at the job i have now. whatever job it is will have to leave enough time off so i can play as many of those golf courses that are between here & CA as long as my shoulder and elbow hold out. maybe i'll start looking for work driving cross country and pack my clubs!

My father turned 79 this year. Since I was a child he always spoke about getting back to Alaska and how much he loved it there. He was stationed there in the Army. He never has, and I doubt he ever will. I wont live like that. No way. No regrets.

We are headed to Florida this coming June to catch the Tarpon run. I have always wanted to tangle with a Tarpon and dammit, I am going to do it. We might hit Lake Okeechobee as well and try to hit a PR largemouth. I have been through a lot of sh*t in my 36 years, I have learned to live life.

If I do work, it will be on a charter boat somewhere taking clients out to catch monster fish!

I'll be turning wrenches until the day I croak ... so long as I stay trapped in MA ... :x

Don't think any of us over here will be able to retire. Such is life.
