    If not your work you need to identify in the body somehow it is not your work as I understand the rules of the board. Lots of links though.

    Whatever. Screw this board. All you people need to get a life. Half of you are probably at work wasting your company's time.

    If any of us think we are going to change anyones minds in here is plain stupid. Why waste the time to even type.

    You are correct... There is a group of people in this country that are stupid.. The person they are going to vote for is going to hurt the economy and weaken our defense. Probably 50% of the people going to vote for Obama have 401k's that are invested in the stock market, yet they are going to vote for someone who is going to tax businesses, which will in turn hurt their profits, and therefor hurt their 401k... But people are too stupid to think about their actions... Like I always say, Conversatives take personal responsibility and Liberals always blame someone else for their problems....simple as that.

    Screw the board? Perhaps you shouldn't spam it if you feel that way.

    And I'd point out that you're "wasting your company's time" too.

    Now be a good boy and correct your post or the thread is going to be locked.
