    It takes a special kind of malicious stupidity to whine that people
    who don't have jobs, who are disabled, who are too young to work, who
    don't have incomes, should be required to pay taxes so that the
    megarich don't have to.

    How did you get to be such a coldhearted, greedy, corrupt, asshole?

    Are you claiming that 50% of the US working population don't have
    jobs, are disabled, are too young to work, or don't have incomes?

    That you stated that "the chill-ren" are the stats used for the statement
    concerning the 49%. The fact that you know it was not the truth makes your
    sorry ass a LIAR, FishHead.

    Noone is saying that the megarich shouldnt pay taxes, but we want those who
    suck the system dry to pay a share too.

    I get sick of seeing all these fat people get out of their huge $50,000
    trucks, get in the electric wheelchair at Walmart, pretend to be disabled,
    then proceed to pay for their purchase with food stamps!!!!


    Someone should "DISABLE" their abilty to go into all you can eat
    buffets!!!

    Yup! I shot that on a Saturday morning in front of the San Luis Obispo
    Court House. That guy was the last of the "Occupy SLO" individuals, and
    he was totally oblivious to everything going on around him.
    I guess the rest of them just packed up and left him on his own, not
    wanting to wake him.

    I just shot a 5 exposure set to play with for HDR, and that was a
    result. I certainly didn't want to wake him to receive one of his "Free
    Hugs".

    he looks just like Brad Pitt!

    "Slightly awkward and distractible when facing questions, he was more at
    ease making small talk, and most effusive on the subject of his family,
    enthusing about Ms. Jolie's film ("I played set photographer") and the kids.
    "There's nothing more life-changing than fatherhood," he said. "It's such a
    beautiful shift in perspective." He checked himself: "It's often annoying to
    hear parents talk about it. I sure wasn't into baby pictures before."

    @Work Advice: Karla L. Miller looks at where to go when the well runs dry

    Very tough question: Living where even the menial jobs have dried up, and
    last work reference asked to stop being used as a reference. What options
    are left?

    Karla: As I see it, you have two options: Stay or go. But first, I'm trying
    to get my head around why your one remaining reference has opted out of
    helping you. Referral fatigue? Inability to give a more-than-tepid
    endorsement? I can't help thinking there's an important nugget there.

    Back to your two meager options. They actually offer a wide range of
    possibilities, depending on how creative you can get without turning to a
    life of crime.

    If the jobs have dried up in your area, go where the wells are deeper -
    after careful online reconnaissance. Research locales that host the kinds of
    industries you want to work in. Apply online for jobs, making it clear that
    you're looking to relocate. If you have family or friends in those locales,
    rent sofa space from them in exchange for housework or errands when you are
    in town to interview. If you don't have those connections, seek short-term
    housing opportunities in local classifieds or on Craigslist.

    Liking yourself just the way you are
    Special to the Los Angeles Times
    January 8, 2012

    You know it's tough out there when fashion and beauty executives think that
    even a model's body isn't good enough to sell clothes or that a celebrity's
    natural face isn't up to par, even with makeup.

    The website Jezebel reported in early December that Swedish retailing giant
    H&M featured images on its website of lingerie shown on "completely virtual"
    computer-generated bodies with real models' heads superimposed on top.
    Meanwhile the British Advertising Standards Authority banned two makeup ads
    in 2011 featuring Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts because they thought
    too much airbrushing made the ads misleading, and CoverGirl pulled a mascara
    ad after a U.S. watchdog agency questioned product claims and
    post-production enhancement of the photo.

    An H&M official defended his company's practice, saying "It's not about
    ideals or to show off a perfect body . we are doing this to show off the
    garments."

    Ge Doesn't and next year will be worse!
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100...002.html?KEYWORDS=GE+Profit+Slides+on+Pricing

    By KATE LINEBAUGH and BOB SECHLER

    General Electric Co.'s big industrial businesses are struggling to translate
    higher revenue into bigger profits as prices for its products-particularly
    power generators-remain under pressure from competition and weak demand.

    The company, which reported an 18% year-over-year drop in fourth-quarter
    earnings on Friday, said there are signs the pricing pressure is easing and
    margins will expand this year and next. But those improvements aren't yet in
    place, leaving the Fairfield, Conn., company once again to rely on its big
    lending arm to buoy results.

    rofit at GE Capital rose 58% in the fourth quarter even as revenue fell. At
    the same time, profit at GE's industrial businesses rose just 1.9% on the
    back of a 10% jump in sales. The company's industrial margin shrank to 16.2%
    in the fourth quarter from 17.6% a year earlier.

    "Appearance"--britt

    Why does the way I look matter so much to you?
    Does it matter whether I wear a size nine or a two?
    When I try to talk to you about it, you say you love me.
    You don't look in the mirror and see that image I see.

    It is always something else that I need to do.
    I am sorry that I am not the same as you.
    Appearance means a lot to you, but I really don't care.
    I just want to show everyone my personality and share.

    I love to put on makeup and get ready for the day.
    How can I have any will power, when you say;
    Things would be different if you were smaller.
    Sometimes it is something I can't help, like being taller.

    I am sorry if this sounds mean, or comes across wrong.
    I will always love you, like the lyrics of a song.

    Rented the movie "The Ides of March" last night, a political intrigue
    story revolving around the Dem primary in Ohio.

    There were the establishment shots of people with their rally signs
    "Vote for Joe" "Bob for President" and so on.


    Then a good one: "Will vote for food."
