Math2 and General are under the impression most Americans hate the President, guess what, they don't.

Stop listening to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, stop watching Fox News, stop reading Drudge Report and RedState. That far right echo chamber is not good for you, you guys really thought you were gonna beat Obama because all you get spoon fed from those extremists is the bull shit that "most Americans hate that Socialist Muslim n*gger and Romney will win in a landslide because America is angry".

You guys got duped, the people voted, they rejected your idea of America, and guess what? If you guys don't go towards the middle, you guys will keep on losing elections. Old white men can't win you elections anymore. America is changing...

I am not under the impression that most people hate Obama. I just accept it and realize that most of you are idiots. You want Obama? You've got him, but we'll see how long America stays a country after this.

The Mayans were right, time to PANIC

Quote:
The Congressional Budget Office is required to consider the effects of the so-called “fiscal cliff” if a year-end budget deal is not reached, which many experts believe would push the country into a recession. But even with that caveat, the nonpartisan agency assumes 9.06 million jobs will be created between 2013 and 2017. (This is a revision downward; CBO had estimated 11 million in January.)

But Moody’s Analytics, in an August forecast, predicts 12 million jobs will be created by 2016, no matter who is president. And Macroeconomic Advisors in April also predicted a gain of 12.3 million jobs.

A new housing boom

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The long-battered housing market is finally starting to get back on its feet. But some experts believe it could soon become another housing boom.

Signs of recovery have been evident in the recent pick ups in home prices, home sales and construction. Foreclosures are also down and the Federal Reserve has acted to push mortgage rates near record lows.

But while many economists believe this emerging housing recovery will produce only slow and modest improvement in home prices, construction and jobs, others believe the rebound will be much stronger.

Barclays Capital put out a report recently forecasting that home prices, which fell by more than a third after the housing bubble burst in 2007, could be back to peak levels as soon as 2015.

"In our view, the housing market had undergone a dramatic over-correction during the prior five years, resulting in pent-up demand for housing purchases that would spark a rapid rise in housing starts," said Stephen Kim, an analyst with Barclays, in a note to clients.

In addition to what Kim sees as a big rebound in building, he's bullish on home prices, expecting rises of 5% to 7.5% a year.

Buffett: Better growth ahead for U.S. economy

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Warren Buffett sees the U.S. economy bucking the trend of slower growth across the rest of the world, and expects even better growth ahead.

Buffett, in an appearance on CNBC Wednesday morning, said the economy isn't roaring ahead, but that it is showing solid growth, helped by the pickup in housing so far this year.

"It's certainly better in the U.S. than it is in Europe," he said. "We're still inching ahead, but it's inching...The United States actually has the steadiest trajectory. I don't see any change in that."

Buffett, the CEO of investment firm Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA, Fortune 500), said he's seeing gains in a number of the businesses he owns, and that various Berkshire units will add about 8,000 jobs this year in response to improved demand.

"Residential housing is picking up. That will have a significant impact," he said. And he doesn't think the European sovereign debt crisis will be a significant drag on the U.S.

Buffett, a strong supporter of President Obama, said he believes that the U.S. economy will grow next year, no matter who is elected president. He doesn't believe that the rise in tax rates and deep cuts in federal spending set to take effect early next year, known as the fiscal cliff, will throw a wrench into things.

"There's a pretty fair chance we'll go over [the cliff] for a short period of time. But [a debt-reduction deal] is going to get done," he said.

Moody’s Analytics US Macro Outlook: Growth Will Pick up in 2013

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Moody’s Analytics, a leading independent provider of economic forecasting, today released Chief Economist Mark Zandi’s US economic outlook for October. According to “U.S. Macro Outlook: Slow and Steady Isn’t Enough,” hiring and economic growth will revive in 2013, assuming policymakers address fiscal issues. By 2014, real GDP growth will approach a 4% annual pace, with job growth of more than 250,000 per month and unemployment declining steadily.

BTW, Geddy Lee does not approve of you using a Rush LP image as your avi...

Quote:
Classic Rock: Talking of cruel and inhuman, you've recently told right-wing American firebrand Rush Limbaugh to stop using your music on his radio show.
Geddy Lee: I didn't know he was using our music. Apparently, he's been using Spirit of Radio for quite a few years; We didn't know that. And I wouldn't know where to find his radio show, he's such an offensive human being; I try not to bring that into my life. Anyway, this gentleman who works for The Huffington Post wrote to us and made us aware of it.

We did a similar thing with Rand Paul, the Libertarian candidate-he's like a Tea Party guy, he's Ron Paul's son-earlier this year. We heard he was using our music on his campaign and actually quoting lyrics of ours, and we sent him a nice letter saying, "Please don't do this."

I don't want to be seen as sponsoring these guys. A lot of situations you can't control how you're music's being used. You don't want to get caught up in it too much, but some people just put you in a position where you have to separate yourself from it.

and this quote will make your heart sink.
Geddy Lee
Quote:
One the last tour, Michael Moore came to one of our shows, and we found out that he's a big Rush fan. He was saying that very thing to us about Subdivisions, and he quotes Subdivisions at the top of his last book. And I thought that was fascinating, because I have a lot of respect for him and I love what he does; he's smart, and he's a moral guy.

Math, you know your avi is of a band of libs?

The collapse of the government after unsustainable spending. The dollar will devaluate, there will be no incentive, taxes will be raised. The country will collapse economically. Democracy is an unsustainable form of government, once people realize they can get what they want for free, they will vote no other way.

Barack Obama is further to the right on the political spectrum than Ronald Reagan.
