Final? 2012 Presidential Election Statewide Results:

David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report has put together an amazing spreadsheet of the "final" 2012 Presidential Election Results, as of November 19th.  The interesting thing is in only five states (in blue) did President Obama increase his 2008 vote percentage.  Every other state, to include the Swing States, saw his percentages go down!  You can see the entire spreadsheet here.

This ain't heaven but you can imagine it from here.
The real geniune program for national renewal.
1.) End subsidies fore biofuels. Biofuels raise food prices.
2.) Impose a huge tax increase on 16 wheelers. One 16 wheeler does as much damage to the interstate sysrem as TEN THOUSAND CARS!! Long distance freight should be moved by rail! Yes that means that many over the road truckers will lose their jobs. That job lose will be partly off set by an increase in local trucking. That will put some prostitutes out of business. If you beleive in free enterprise then you should be opposed to subsidies that distort how things would work if some people were not able to make others pay for the damage that they do.
3.) Abolish the Federal Reserve. this is so important that Americans should have had a revolution over this issue generations ago.
4.) Term limits not only for Congress but the Supreme Court too.
5.) Close all overseas milittary bases. We need to keep our money at home.
6.) Nationalize all casinos not owned by Native American Tribes.
Those are after all already nationalized.
7.) Impose a progressive income tax.
8.) Impose a progressive unearned income tax.
9.) Impose a progressive inheritance tax.
10.) Impose a 50 cent a gallon gasoline tax until the price of gasoline is 10 dollars a gallon or at the same level as the price of gasoline in Paris France which ever is higher.
11.) Outlaw thhw production of all POVs over 2500 lbs. (A POV is a car)
12.)Make one half of the seats in the House of Representives At Large Seats. Award them on a proportional representation basis so that new politcal parties can gain some credability to challenge the criminals that have ruled the USA at least since 1963 if not sooner.
13.)Abolish limited liability of corprate board members and senior executives. Millions of Americans have known since the 1930s that capitalism is really over rated in some circles. More importantly this limited liability crap further distorts the system.
14.)Bring back, with some modifications, the custom of jury nullification.
15.) Outlaw a firearms magazine capacity of more than 6 rounds. If you can not defend yourself with six rounds you should not be handling a weapon as you are more likely to hurt yourself than a deer, a peseant, a rabbit or even a criminal.

Now I know that many of you readers out there do not want to be taken advantage of. You did not rise to your wordly position by being a sucker for a smooth talking saleswoman. No ypu know a good deal for yourseldf when you see one. The flat tax was the deal century. Ok it did not get adopted as a completely flat tax.
Yes it was a good deal for those US families in the top 20% income bracket.
These patriots were usre as hell not going to have their bank accounts raided by a bunch of heathen commies. They sure as hell would havee never thought what would have George Washington or Thomas Paine have done. That would have been unpleasent. Americas Founding Parents not only risked their lives they risked their sacred fortunes. Thomas Paine was not a slave owner. Yet he made a hell of a lot of money through the sales of Common Sense and the Spartacus Miniseries. These men and the other Americans that supported the War of Indepedence did hnot only risk their lives but their sacred fortunes.
But many of you have something that Washington and Paine did not. That is your own children. It is not surprising that you want control over every cent that youu earn. But what good is a Harvard degree if the nation that your children and grand children grow up in is a country in which their is no sense of common purpose outside of competing with your neighbors as to who can accumulate the most fire arms?
Remember a progressive tax is one in which normall earning people pay a normale tax. If you understand that you can not reasonably object

Ok, you have read trhe macro economic list. Now it is time that you read the micro economic list.
1.) If you do not want to become a vegetarian you should eat more rabbit. Rabbit meat can protect from urges to become a vegitarian. It will also cause you to eat less beef, pork, and fish.
2.) Learn to play Pasuer. Playing cards is one of the best things that you can do to help the environment.
3.) Play cards while sitting on a bamboo chair. After you have won you can think of other uses for bamboo.
4.) Plant Blueberries and Rassberries. America has already had Johnny Hayseed. Now it is time for John Berry.
5.) Take a rascist to dinner. It should be obvious that one racist in america is more dangerous to the peace and prosperity of the American people than 1,000 Taliban in Afghanistan. But how can a racist be reformed if he only hangs around with like minded people? Who is going to do it, if not you?
6.) Dry you clothes on the line.
7.) Take a shower not a bath. If you do take a bath in the wintwr time time you can leave the water in the tub when you are finished to help heat the house.
8.) Do not buy gold or diamonds. Buy saffron instead. Buying gold just helps the rich geet richer and does enourmous damage to the envvironment.
9.) Support KIVA it is a four letter word for something that you should know more about.
10.) If you have money for a Pilgrimage do not go to Mecca. Go to Brunssum Netherlands instead. Once you arrive you should go to the NATO headquartrs known as AFNORTH. You should walk around the perimeter of the HQ three times. Then you should walk to one of the many nearby closed POMCUS sites and throw rocks over the fence to see if you can hit one of the warehouses. If you can you should drive across the near by German border and celebrate by eating in in a German resturant.
