Read your header and was too tied to work related things. I had just decided not to buy anymore 2012 Mayan end books for the library. LOL

However maybe the 2012 election is what is going to end the world. Something to think about.

Dear sir, you have put your finger on the most bizarre hypocrisy of many rich people. If their income taxes were raised so that the amount they pay to get politicians elected would be turned for state usage... They would turn out exactly as rich, and their whole society would be richer. (Clue for them: money used to pay one's tax are 100% tax-deductible! [Big Grin] )

Likewise, either another thread says something about this and the healthcare debacle, or I'm imagining things (or remembering a flame war from the spring). Either way, an absurd amount of money was spent fighting the healthcare laws, and far more will be spent in 2011 trying to get them repealed. Wow...can you believe how much this healthcare is costing our nation? [Razz]
