    You are right; how do we keep Romney out without (1+ / 0-)

    encouraging Obama's bad side?

    Is there some "we" here who have the power to "encourage Obama's bad side," or not?

    Let me suggest a more small-scale project.  How about if we, meaning those of us who have been reading priceman's diaries from early on, persuade you that "keeping Romney out" and "without encouraging Obama's bad side" are not our projects because they presuppose an obsession with official leadership.  Neither Obama nor Romney is "for us," so if we are to be "for us" we can't be obsessed with either of them.

    Was Obama tricked into appointing Geithner, DeMarco, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe and the Bowles-Simpson commission?
    No.  Obama has been like that all along.  Read this article.

    If he gets in, the Rs (this means people like Ted Cruz) will likely control both House & Senate. This means repeal of the ACA and gutting social security, food stamps & Medicare.
    First, read this:

    Then, consider that the main purpose of the ACA will be the permanent subsidy of insurance companies.  Its supposed benefits will be annulled with all that new power the insurance companies will get, along with their new money.  

    I can't claim to be worried.  So let's get back to my proposed solution here -- that we be for each other regardless of how the dance of the Ds and the Rs turns out.  What do you think?
