So are are you sitting on a pile of gold? Assuming you aren't, how is your money going to be any more useful than mine if Obama manages to succeed in transforming this nation into a third world country and inflation deflates the dollar beyond recognition?
Maybe Homer has room for you too.
When Bush left office my 401k was in the toilet, since Obama has been in office, I may retire early.

Access Hollywood: Pentagon, CIA leaked Bin Laden raid info to filmmakers

Classified data about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden may have been leaked to Hollywood. The CIA and Pentagon are accused of dangerously tight involvement with the writers of a movie, denounced as pre-election Obama propaganda.

Why? How could this possibly help Obama? He did NOTHING but say 'OK, do it'.

<quoted text> You and Obama keep up the attacks on business. It's running even the dems away. It's going over like a Led Zeppelin.
nothing spells out the differences in what is planned for America more than a) Obama's chicago thug political attack on Bain Capital (even tho the guy in charge of Bain when the factory was closed WORKS for Obama now) and b) "Julia" his imaginary dependent woman. instead they should trod out a typical victimized woman a/k/a a woman who dated or married a Kennedy.

as others have eloquently posted:

“Life of Julia” is a slap in the face to today’s independent women.

To suggest that women need government as a crutch to their own personal and career fulfillment is a disgrace.

This viewpoint has many European nations on the brink of bankruptcy.

President Obama has the gall to use this paternalistic propaganda to stroke the insecurities that many women face — a true sign of his lack of courage.

__________

Is this part of the transformation of America in which we all become dependent on the government?

Are we trying to follow some of the European countries that are in dire straits today?

I don’t think all women across America want to feel that helpless. The Democrats have totally overblown women’s issues, conveniently right before an election.

__________

“Life of Julia,” Obama’s Orwellian piece, is the Democratic ode to the bastard nation that they have created.

Just as they have ruined generations of inner-city families with their big-government offerings, the Democrats are now trying to make it hip or endemic among the broader population.

__________

The tone of “Life of Julia” is paternalistic.

The anti-traditional-family party focuses on a single-parent household, leaving out the husband/father, and the state becomes the substitute.

The government that the Democrats are trying to reinforce and expand should be called “The Daddy State.”

__________

Obama Democrats believe the federal government should act in loco parentis because of its superior knowledge and ability.

Mitt Romney Republicans and Ron Paul libertarians believe the proper role of government is to assure equal opportunity for all, not equal outcomes.

Thus, Republicans want to teach the poor how to fish, while Democrats want to dole fish to the poor and render them dependent on an ever-expanding federal leviathan.

More evidence of "screw the working man" we must protect the rich. Republicans are starting to remind me of the RCA dog from years ago when it comes to the rich. First they sit up and obey "His masters voice". Good little doggies!! Fetch mutt, now roll over and then bend over..Too funny.

You're an idiot.

The stock market is propped up with inflation as the value of the dollar sinks.

Go ahead and retire early. Hope you starve.

You should be the one hoping Romney DOES win. Otherwise, your living space is going to get a lot smaller. I like a lot of room to stretch out.

Arguably the biggest lie coming from the Republicans and the Romney campaign is that President Obama is a tax and spend liberal who's directly and personally responsible for record deficits and a crushing national debt.
Not only is Mitt Romney telling his supporters that President Obama continues to spend out of control, but additionally that the president is responsible for doubling the budget deficit since he took office. This is not a new attack. Republicans who blindly greenlit trillions in Bush-era spending have been engaged in this nonsense practically since the minute the president was inaugurated.
I like to do this from time to time, so consider this a one-stop source for debunking what the Republicans are claiming about the Obama administration's fiscal record. Before I do, however, I'd like to note that Republicans often confuse the national debt with the federal budget deficit, not unlike the way they scramble the stimulus and the bailouts.(The "stimulus," passed by President Obama, is the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the "bailout," passed by President Bush, is also known as TARP.) They're not interchangeable terms.

Biased Media Ignores Shady Obama-Jon Corzine Connection

The world is replete with double-standards, instances where a set of facts are reported one way based on the biases of those doing the reporting while a nearly identical set of facts is presented differently, again based on the biases of those telling the story.

All maneuvering tests complete on the Dragon-9 spacecraft. It will now maneuver in close and be captured by the ISS robotic arm then docked. History in the making!

In case you are wondering the Falcon-9 rocket is named after the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars and the Dragon-9 capsule was named after Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter, Paul, and Mary.
