An Experiment in Adjusting an Alcohol-based Reality Filter.
The more beer you drink, the more the world seems to make sense. I'm not sure if this is the beer's fault, or the world's. Experiments proceed.
For pigeonholing purposes, I consider myself a South Park Conservative: I believe in Loose Women and Tight Borders but I'm getting anime porn and legally mandated lounges for day laborers...further adjustment to the model may be needed.

Hmm, where do I start. Obamacare will cut my FSA account from $4800 to $2500 by the year 2013. As a single mother making under 50k with a son who is autistic, I cannot began to explain how that hurts me. I have taken on a second job to ensure I will have enought money to continue his care and offset the huge tax bill given to me (especially since I can no longer deduct my medical expenses after you raised it to 10% of your income from 7.5%). You are a terrible President when you take the only parent a special needs child has and forces her to be out of the home in order to keep the same level of care she has for her son! You made me choose between memories with my son while he is growing or giving him the treatment he needs to be independant one day. How sad of a man and party you are!
And New Yorkers wonder why the rest of the country no longer watches their shows, buys their books, reads their papers and magazines, or in general gives a crap WHAT they have to say anymore.
As far as I can tell, the only reason New York exists nowadays is to make Californians feel better about themselves.
They used to say, "Too dumb for New York, too ugly for L.A." Apparently New Yorkers are aiming for both now, perhaps in hopes of being admitted to Massachusetts.
The tragedy in this for New York, besides the insult to the beliefs of so many of the 9/11 victims and their families, is this: Bloomberg is all they've got. Seriously. Look at the New York political scene and tell me who they have who can make a credible run for mayor.
It's the same problem the Democrats have with Obama; they've drained the well of viable candidates to the lees and the straw's full of mud; who do they have to credibly primary him — or follow him?
