Christmas Tree Day!

***We're gonna go get our tree today. We go to a tree farm and cut a fresh one. It lasts all month that way. That's been a tradition in our family since the kids were little. It's Mark & Johnny's turn to pick this year. Emily & I like short fat trees, they like great big trees, so we take turns. Looks like we'll get a big one this year. After we get the tree we're going to eat at Bellisimo, a little Italian restaurant here in Richmond. Looking forward to it!

***North Korea vows rocket launch. WHERE is the leadership in this country? C'mon, step up Obama. Unless, of course, you have no friggin' idea what to do. Do you think his clueless voters will EVER figure it out?

***The union assault on direct democracy.

***Gallup poll: Yes, Democrats, liberals favor socialism. Big surprise there.

***


***Neal Boortz's take on the fiscal cliff. I agree with him.

***8 smart ways to save on Christmas.

***Mystery tycoon gives out $100 bills to Sandy victims. Well, he's certainly doing more than Obama. Let me hasten to say I don't think the government should be in the business of bailing people out every time a weather tragedy strikes. Private donations and help drives do a much better job of that than the federal government. My beef is with the press coverage. The difference between the coverage of Katrina, when Bush was in office; and Sandy, now that The One is in office, is undeniable. Yet, the lefties who voted for Obama will deny it anyway. Easier than facing the truth, I guess.

***Mobile phones that bend, stretch, even fold into your wallet?



***
Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.


Karen Ravn

***Obama calls GOP "Scrooges." Real presidential.

***Fun Christmas crafts. Why can't I think of this stuff?







***Flattering fits for curvy bodies. I like that. "Curvy" sounds so much better than "fat."


***50 with no retirement savings? What to do now.

"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don't give up." -- Anne Lamott

***Have a great day!

Are Democrats and liberals really socialists? Looks like it. Numbers from a new Gallup Poll provide some backing for claims made by GOP rivals and conservatives over the years: 53 percent of Democrats and 62 percent of liberals give a "positive review of socialism," the pollster found, compared to 23 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of conservatives

Other archetypal beliefs are also very much in play. While three-fourths of both Democrats and liberals give a positive review of the federal government, that sentiment is shared by just 27 percent of Republicans and 32 percent of conservatives. There's a big divide on the concept of "big business" as well. Gallup found that 75 percent of Republicans, 72 percent of conservatives give thumbs-up to big business, compared to 44 percent of Democrats and 41 percent of liberals.
