I just read this on a different forum.

"For all the Obama supporters and undecided who just don't get it:
I have a small business, in fact a business of 1, me. An LLC. I turned down a major customer today, a $100,000 a year customer. I did that for several reasons:
I cannot do all the work myself
I am afraid to hire someone
There is too much risk
There is not enough reward, all that extra work those 80 hour weeks for the next 3 months would just put me into a higher tax bracket and I would pay much of that $$$ in taxes
And the big one, I think it is 60-40 that Obama is going to win. Why should I work and pay taxes when it will be spent on abortions and wars that I do not approve of? I am not a young man anymore, the day I will face God and explain how I used my life is only 20-30 years in the future. I don't want to have paid for abortions and sent young men off to die in Afghanistan."

Am I missing some context here? Because this is just appalling if it's really true:

The other posts include the federal government declaring Trump's hair a disaster zone. Even though that could happen , that looks like an Onion type of site.

That's right. Goddamned Democratic presidents and all the foreign wars they've started.

Wait, what?

That was my first reaction. I think Romnesia is spreading throughout the entire party.

The Tea Party may be in for some big losses. Hopefully Bachmann is one of them, even though she outspends her opponent 12-1, she's barely ahead of him in the polls.

Maybe that will cause Republicans to go back to being more "Reagan" like and stop being backwards on social issues, which could be costing them with certain groups? I'm pretty sure the Tea Party would hate Reagan if he were running now.

Ummmm...okay. So this person desperately need help, but they don't want to hire someone because...why?

I love how all of a sudden apparently we get to pick and choose what sorts of big issues we want our taxes to go towards. Man, if only my family had known we could just opt out of not letting our taxes go towards the wars the last 10 years!

At least this person seems consistent in not supporting abortion and not supporting letting young people die in war, so that's something.

As for the stories I'm already hearing of issues in Florida...*Cries*. I love how, in this day and age of iPads and iPods and cars with all sorts of fancy gizmos to the point where you don't even need to drive the thing anymore and apps and all that stuff that we STILL can't seem to figure out how to make it so our voting devices can get our votes in with as minimal of issues as possible. Where's a Steve Jobs type for this issue when you need them?

Also, I too approve of a good 'Airplane' reference .

This May Not Be the Best Moment Politicially, But It's Time to Talk Reparations
