Cythraul: Khellendros: Cythraul: More post-election insane depression.

The child of my cousin, a ten year old girl, woke up from a nightmare last night crying, saying she was terrified that Obama was going to ruin the country. A ten year old. It's probably relevant that my cousin is co-owner of a sleazy predatory lending company, and Republican.

That's when you know you're a terrible parent - your child has a terrifying nightmare about a moderate politician being reelected.

Who knows what they're filling that poor child's head with. The kid was born into a millionaire family, and has very little to worry about. Yet, the re-election of a moderate President is for some reason terrifying. She probably has been told, or thinks that Obama is going to take away her Mom and Dad's business, or some other such nonsense.


Thats weird as hell growing up my parents would never stress me out with politics. I remember asking them about the Carter/Regan election and them talking to me about it but nothing like "Oh he is the devil and the country will go to hell if he is elected". We would talk about the questions and other things that were voted on and they would explain to me either way what would happen. But damn nightmares thats effed up.

I wouldn't. It was probably some really bland "vanilla" cake with icing that's just confectioner's sugar and Crisco. This is Romney supporters we're talking about.

This guy is a moron.

If he thinks that Obama is going to trash the economy he should be happy.

When the world goes to shiat... moderately well-off people buy jewelry to show that they still CAN buy jewelry.

When the world is doing great.. previously poor people buy jewelry... to show that they can.

Unless the economy collapses completely to the "10 days from cannibalism" level, he's gonna be fine if he knows what he is doing.

CA is underfunded on its state pensions to the tune of 300 BILLION dollars and rising. Not sure if CA is a model of how we should do things.


the reddest states have the fattest and most poverty ridden populations, probably not the way to go either.

Oh we'll still really run the country, we'll still be making money by the fistfulls and moving it offshore and we'll still have better lives than you but it won't be as good as it could have been. We could have been whiter and wealthier if not for you socialist farks.

Thanks for nothing!

I assume he means it rhetorically, as in "The demise of the small-business owner" or something like that.  I'm guessing (hoping) he doesn't actually think Obama is after him personally. The former is just run-of-the-mill hyperconservative rhetoric. If the latter, he needs to seek counselling before he becomes a danger to himself or others.

You are aware there is a lot of migration out of CA by business and people with any kind of money, right? It is getting downright nasty there.

LA Times article about the exodus from CA.

Link

The proportion of Californians who had moved here from out of state reached a 100-year low of about 20% in 2010, and the decade measured by the most recent census was the first in a century in which the majority of Californians were native-born.

The demographics of California today more closely resemble those of 1900 than of 1950: It is a mostly home-grown population, whose future depends on the children of immigrants and their children, said William Frey, a demographer and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.


Future is not very bright for CA, and raising taxes all you want won't put a dent in the budget issues, and will just slow the economy more and create migration out. Kind of like what Obama is doing nationally.

It would be fun to go into the store, take up tons of time trying on expensive pieces, and then ask why she was closed. When she answers, reply that you're on a one-day shopping moratorium.

Pain. Lots and lots of economic pain. I had to hear a dozen Pols tell me this year, "there is no magic pill". There isn't. But while we let the genius block mull it over, some people have suggested, 'when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging'.

So wait you're saying that the poor people vote against stealing other people's money?

Those states only show up as "poor" because they've got more people farming their own food so they don't need money. Cell coverage is weak so they don't need iPhones. They're hard working so they don't need TV.

I'm not normally this way, but I just endured a lot of butthurt on my facebook feed today. I actually have relatives and friends praying for end times now and calling other Christians ignorant for not voting Romney. One even advocated people blowing their brains out now rather than surrendering to the inevitable concentration camp he would end up in. I can't make this shiat up.

Keep it classy Christians.
