Papa John's Idiocy has already cost the company $140M as of today

Stock price in 2008=14.81 ... Stock Price before controversy= 53.10, He's doing pretty well... Drop since threatened boycott and lawsuit for spamming customers= 47.06 and dropping... 53.10-47.06= 6.04 x 23.13M shares= wiping just under 140Million dollars of company value off the book the last few days. Just how much is that healthcare going to cost? a lot less than 140M

My 78yo Father Who Went to Segregationist Rallies in 1950's Florida Voted For Obama Twice

His dad (my grandfather) was deep, deep dark KKK. I seriously don't even want to think about it. However, it is a measure of how far we have come in this country when a man like my dad votes for Obama twice.

In this cycle (due to the racist nastiness) in deep red North Florida, he even went as far to tell people off over their idiotic and often racist support for Romney.

I am proud of him.

He has also been walking around with smile on his face the last two days.

Citizens United DID Matter... When the Spending Numbers Come Out

We will get a clearer picture of the tsunami that we faced. I think on a level playing field we would have easily won by 10 Million + votes again.

That makes the victory all the more sweet.

Miami-Dade is already reporting machine problems (per CNN)

Lines are long and machines are breaking... hang in there Florida voters!

Rain and Thunderstorms in the Forecast for N. Florida Tomorrow= Bad News for Romney

North Florida, with a few exceptions, tends to break massively for the Repugs. The early voting Democratic lead may be enough to give Obama Florida...


Rove on Fox Giving a Spin on Ohio Early Voting Sunday Night on Lou Dobbs

As a rule, I DO NOT watch Fox, but I braved the channel change last night just to see the reality distortion going on in Romney land. Having not watched it in years I was shocked at how far from reality they were.

Why I am posting though is Karl Rove was on giving that stats that there was only a 98k gap between Democratic and Republican early voters. His argument was if that margin held and people voted in a similar breakdown Romney would take Ohio.

Someone else can talk me down too, but after a little research, I uncovered that if someone doesn't vote in the primaries they are moved to Unaffiliated. That means there is a huge block of voters in Ohio in that category (almost half). While that would also include some Republicans, there would also be many Democratic votes there (if not the bulk).

So is that the lie Rove was spreading? Or, is there something to his argument?

Share Your Food Photos

Just a took a picture of my daughters' Halloween cake and was thinking that it would be nice (and different) to share food photos in the Photography group.

Mitt Romney: Extremely Conservative and Endorsing Richard Mourdock

Romney stands by Mourdock, won't ask him to pull down ad

Source: Thehill.com

Mitt Romney's campaign on Wednesday reiterated its support for Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock (R), saying it will not ask him to pull down an ad featuring the GOP presidential nominee.

Mourdock stirred controversy Tuesday when he said pregnancies resulting from rape can be "something God intended." Romney had already cut the ad for Mourdock, who's in a tough race. It was a rare move for the GOP nominee, who's not gotten involved in many Senate contests.

A Romney official told The Hill the campaign would not ask for the ad, which began airing on Tuesday, to come down...
