One of the most unfair stories ever told
Everyone has heard all of the joking stories about how an old lady burned herself with a cup of coffee and sued McDonald's. Everyone has heard the stories that you can sue anyone for just about anything and get away with suing them. What many people don’t know is the truth of what happened when Mrs. Liebeck got burned and sued McDonald's. There is a quote that could explain why this story got so out of hand we never got the opportunity to hear what really happened. This quote is by Winston Churchill: “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” We are all guilty of jumping to conclusions without ever knowing the whole story of anything. Here are some misconceptions that many of us have heard about the old lady that sued McDonald's and what really happened. Read more........
Vice Presidential debate entertaining as expected
Vice President Biden’s debate against Paul Ryan outshines President Obama’s debate against Mitt Romney. Vice President Biden looked much more comfortable than his boss with confident smiles and an immediate answer for every issue Paul Ryan argued. Vice President Biden went places that President Obama should have gone with an attack on Mitt Romney’s 47% statement several times. Vice President Biden did a good job in his debate by cutting off Ryan much more often than Obama cut off Romney. Vice President Biden appeared to really enjoy the debate in many moments.
Vice President Biden clearly had an upper-hand on foreign policy with the Obama administration’s dealing with Iran, Syria and much of the middle-east. Vice President Biden even attacked Paul Ryan on asking for more money for his home state when it came to cutting spending suggesting towards Paul Ryan being a hypocrite of over-spending. Ryan dodged tax question on their actual plan and said he wants to work bi-partisan but still spoke with no specific plan. Vice President Biden quickly disagreed most of what Paul Ryan said. Paul Ryan defends his idea for continued spending on defense. Read more........
Chris Mathews rips President Obama over debate
Chris Mathews, an employee for MSNBC with his well-known show Hardball, had some unkind words for President Obama after his first debate against presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. This is what he had to say in his interview on the Rachel Maddow show:
"I don't know what he was doing out there," Matthews said. "He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a
plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it." Read more....
They are watching you....
Are you afraid of employers looking at your Facebook profile online? You like many people should feel concerned about this action. The creation of an online profile on a social network such as Facebook is public and employers are looking.
A 2009 survey by CareerBuilder.com showed that out of 2,600 hiring people surveyed that 45% of them were looking into applicants social network profiles. Now what is even less
encouraging is that a 2010 survey by Jobvite.com found that out of 600 human resource people and job recruiters that 80% believed that social media will become a part of the recruiting process in the future. Read more.....

Is Donald Trump another Rush Limbaugh?
Donald Trump is at it again with President Obama. According to CNN Trump “said he would donate $5 million to charity if the president released his college records and passport applications.”
"I have a deal for the president, a deal that I don't believe he can refuse, and I hope he doesn't. If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice - inner city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, anything he wants–a check immediately for $5 million," said Trump.

5 Comments about the Vice Presidential debate that says it all
“People said, ‘oh he laughed too much,’ but it is laughable that we would be ... days out from this election and they still haven't told us how they're going to do this wonderful plan that all the details are behind door number three. That stuff is laughable. You can't cut by 20% taxes for millionaires and billionaires, corporations by 30% and not have to pay for it somehow.”
Governor Martin O’Malley
“While Ryan tried to depict the Obama administration as projecting weakness, Biden hit back hard with repeated questions on details of Romney's foreign policy plan, which Ryan was hard put to answer.”
“If you were scoring as a debate coach, you’d say, ‘Boy, the guy who controlled that debate was Joe Biden.”
Expect fireworks in the Vice Presidential candidate debate
Many people can say that the previous debate of President Obama and Mitt Romney was disappointing if you are a Democrat and relieving if you are a Republican. Don’t expect the next debate to fall short of a cage fight. Joe Biden has served the public as a politician for almost 40 years. There should be plenty of pressure on the younger Paul Ryan to hold his own against Biden. Paul Ryan has been in Washington for a long time but hasn’t had the experience of Joe Biden who has previously ran for president. Now that the first debate is over, it was very likely studied by both sides with Vice President Biden having a clear-path opportunity to attack Paul Ryan on the plan that he and Romney have that has yet to be clearly explained.

Bravo Mitt Romney
This presidential race is officially going to be competitive if there was doubt that Mitt Romney had a chance of winning before. Despite is 47% remarks; he looks stronger than he ever looked in the public’s eye, going head to head with President Obama in their first televised debate before the election. When PBS’s moderator tried to cut him off he talked over him to get his point across fighting to get his argument out there. Despite all of his fight President Obama still spoke longer than Mitt Romney. Had Mitt Romney not fought to get his words out President Obama may have dominated the debate time with 10 minutes more of speak time.
Do the 47% really exist Mitt?
Do the 47% really exist? With a country full of a variety of people that work in the fields of business, education, finance, government, military, food services, construction and engineering, wouldn’t it make sense that we all need each other to sustain this country and sustain ourselves to live happy and prosperous. When Mitt Romney made that comment he should have mentioned the 100%
percent instead of 47% because we all need each other to sustain our lives to be truly happy. Did he forget that he was talking about me; a US Army veteran did two tours to Iraq? Am I not contributing enough to society Mitt Romney? I go to school with the Post 911 GI Bill, my medical comes from the VA and hope that one day I can contribute a lot more to society with a business that I want to build with the help of the US.
