We all have to take a pledge that no matter what the poll numbers say that Biden is ahead

We must vote like he is behind. Otherwise the USA is DOA as a country.

That Orange evil Phat pfuk needs to go!

In the early nineties i worked for an investment banking firm as Silicon Valley was taking off.

Apple was starting to gain momentum and the firm got a piece of the investment banking pie of these high tech companies. They used to give us bonuses twice a year. A few times I got bonuses of at least $50,000 part of it was an IRA contribution. I saved those bonus letters and can’t believe I got so much. I saved those bonuses and used them as a down payment on my house and had my kitchen remodeled and expanded and to this day still have much of that money in my IRA. In 2007 I moved the IRA from mutual funds into cash. I had left that business in 1996 and the broker told me I was crazy to cash out now. After the market crashed in 2008 he called and asked me if I had any more insight in the market and if I wanted to come work for him. I said “no I like the money but not the early morning hours”. A guy I worked with at the time kept his money in those mutual finds and he got pretty much wiped out sadly in 2008.

Saw Steve Jobs several times in our offices he was a jerk in real life) sadly.

My sister has the same problem

She has no control and has to wear diapers. She is only 68 and I feel so bad for her. She has cut down on her eating because of it. She takes so many meds for it, I wonder if they are part of the cause.

Because The Democrats have more intergrity and think elections should be won fair and square

Rethugs have no integrity and will fight to win by any means necessary. Even if they have to lie,
Steal and cheat.

But I remember reading that Democrats resorted to dirty tricks in the 50’s and 60’s stuffing ballot boxes. In the past they weren’t so squeaky clean. But today’s rethugs are masters of cheating way and beyond what the Dems did. To me the foreogn inference is the lowest of Love.

Those veteran charities that trump the goblin donated the money to should be investigated

I wouldn't put it past trump to have those" charities" donate the money back to him as campaign donations.

My Mother passed away this afternoon

She was almost 94 in failing health. 3 weeks ago she was in the hospital with a bladder infection that went septic and her kidneys shut down. Her wonderful caregivers massaged her kidneys and basically were her nurses at the hospital. She was in the hospital for 6 days and I had her brought home under hospice. She seemed happy coming home and was eating baby food. Last night she refused food. Today, Her caregiver called me and told me I should come to her house. When I saw her I knew she was going to leave me. I held her hand and told her I loved her and it was ok if she moved on. About 45 minutes later she passed while I was holding her hand. It was such a peaceful spiritual moment. Since 2008 I was taking care of her financial affairs and had excellent caregivers living with her who became my family also. They treated my Mom like she was their baby and mother. Her years with them were happy. Up until May 1st we all went out for lunch which was sadly her last outing. After she passed they cleaned her up. Put on a clean change of clothes, put on her blue eyeshadow, lipstick and traced her eyebrows. She looked so beautiful. It wasn't until the mortuary came and took her that we all lost it. Yesterday was my 27th wedding anniversary and I feel somehow my mom hung on so I wouldn't associate her death the same day.

But the really strange thing was when I got the call, I left my house immediately about 4 blocks from my house I saw a car parked on the street that was the same car my parents had when my Dad passed. I made my mother sell it because it was a big car and wanted her to drive a smaller one. At that moment. I knew then I was going to lose my Mother. My Dad's car was coming for her I thought at that moment. My Mother is at peace tonight. She lived a good life and traveled the world. She was a gadfly fasihionista woman with a sparkling personality. And I was proud she was my Mother.

This is so sick. I live in SF and this is becoming common

My mother has a house she has been renting for over 20 years to a blind man. My sister is going to inherit this house. Her husband is threatening me to take over my mother's conservator ship because I won't raise the rent or improve the rental property. I spoke to the lawyers yesterday and they told me that my brother in law can't go after me. After reading this there is no way I am going to evict the blind man. Let my sister and husband be the villains when she inherits the house.

Americans for THE prosperity of The Koch Bros.

I saw one of those nasty commercials yesterday against a democratic candidate. Between now and November we should do everything in our power to illuminate and expose them for the kochroaches they are.

My bumper sticker and twitter ideas.

No infrastructure spending in the US- thanks Koch bros.
The tea party brought and paid for by the Koch bros.
Like that oil spill in your community? - thanks Koch bros
The GOP brought and paid for by the Koch bros.
Chris Christie, Ted Cruz,Scott Walker etc owned and operated by the Koch bros.
Tea party = Koch bros.
Undrinkable water in your community - thanks Koch bros.
Deadlock in DC - thanks Koch bros.
Scalia, Alito and Thomas the supreme ct judges owned by the Koch bros.
No immigration reform - thanks koch bros
No gun control bills - thanks Koch bros ( they give money to the NRA)

Alec - legislative lobbyists who write bills to take away our voting rights - thanks Koch bros.
Koch bros destroyers of American democracy
Koch bros. your republican parents old John birch society
Koch bros they won't stop until we are all serfs and they are the monarchy
Koch bros destroyer of American brains by propaganda
Koch bros liars and traitors
Koch bros destroyers of the American dream
Horrible commercials with annoying music - thanks Koch bros

Making people so stupid they think and vote against their best interests - thank Koch bros

I spent a week in Arizona and saw the ads and dealt with the Koch heads recently and it frightened me to no end.

Mobilize, educate, tweet, facebook, instagram, email do anything you can to tun the bright light on these kochroaches and expose these mother f ers.

We have to stop the GOP from taking away from our future.

Corporate greed and why don't fast food restaurants pay more

I has been supporting the minimum wage workers who are bravely going out on strike so I decided to go over to Yahoo Finance and do some research on corporate profits

MCD Mcdonalds as of 6/30/13 had 1.87B in cash on their books so far this year they have had revenues of 27.79 B and a profit margin of 19.85%!

DPZ Dominos as of 6/30/13 had 40.84 Million in cash on their books and so far this year they had revenues of $1.75 B and a profit margin of 7.50%

Darden (owns Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steak and a bunch of other chains 2100 restaurants total) had 90.10 million in cash so far this year and revenues of 8.55B with a profit margin of 4.82% as of 5/26/13

YUM (Burger King)has 500 million cash on hand revenues of 13.15 B as of 6/29/13 a profit margin of 10.84% and 500 million in cash.

So these companies can afford to pay more than the minimum wage and they would make more if they paid their workers more who would go to other restaurants and spend their money.

Corporate greed at its worst. I no longer eat at chain fast food restaurants only small locally owned ones who are not publicly owned by Wall Street. And all these companies have been doing stock buybacks to make their companies more attractive to Wall Street. Sick
