Actually, no I don't.

I'm going to work locally and stop feeding the Washington bullshit game.

2. Anything that doesn't draw our attention to Fukushima, New Orleans, BP Oil Spill, the
ongoing U.S. military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, the price of oil, the tax loopholes that keep getting bigger and so forth. Everything else is on the table.

5. jobs. and the "pivot" to a "jobs program" will be all about "free trade" agreements
there will be no "jobs" in the US. the free trade agreements the administration wants will ship more jobs off to Korea and China, and it will all be done in the name of "job creation."

9. I don't know but I'm sure the Dems will hold strong...
and they won't fall for it and accept Republican framing.

This time I'm sure they really learned their lessons.
