Perhaps, but at least now you do know something about him =)<br><br>I have no problem with people disagreeing with his record, but I do think it's unfair to claim that he's an unknown quantity at this point when his legislative an personal history are readily available and have been examined and criticized for over a year ...<br><br>And I love you, too baby -- in that platonic "how about them Bears" way ;-) <br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
Good point. It's only what happens to us personally that matters. I am seeing the world in a whole new light, mojo. Hey everybody who has "issues" with the Bush administration, what exactly has happened in the last 8 years of Bush that has harmed you personally?<br><br>We are STILL what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle

I've got to respond to that one, mojo. Personally I've been harmed by Mr. Bush's idiotic, fraudulent, and useless approach to education. I generally don't think about political issues in these terms, but thanks for making me see that my private concerns ought to be what I focus on.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

His fiscal policies have hurt my investments and my retirement account... in case you hadn't noticed the Stock Market has been on a roller coaster the last 2-3 years. It's FUBAR... ask any stock broker or investment advisor !!<br><br>His lack of oversight, and Laize-faire attitude towards business has caused irreparable harm to the housing market.. the value of my home has dropped 10-15% !!<br><br>Problem is Robert, we won't know the FULL effects for years... it's more than just NOW or the past 3-4 years. It's the future too, it's lost revenue and lost income... <br><br>why don't you ask a harder question ! <br><br>David (OFI)
I sold my home last month and had to drop the price to 170,000 when I should have gotten about 200,000. I totally renewed it to compete with new homes. That's why it sold. Me & my uncle sold our print shop this past January but had to owner finance because the only buyer we could find was a previous employee that couldn't get the loan. If the economy was better we would have had a shop that more buyers would have wanted. Gas prices have kept me from cruising like I'd like to do. The national debt is approaching 10 trillion and counting and we have a new Bush that wants to be president and continue a war that costs 10 billion a month. There is a widget called Deficit Counter you can get at Macupdate to watch the deficit run higher/faster than any gas pump you've ever seen. Yep, we need 4 more years of this. <br><br>Too many lives they've spent across the ocean. Too much money been spent upon the moon. Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night.

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>If the economy was better we would have had a shop that more buyers would have wanted.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Not saying that the economy doesn't need work, but the lack of a buyer for the print shop had nothing to do with the economy. I've seen your scenario, not being able to sell the business, play out the same for many other small printers the last few years. Only the big shops are doing okay, and some of them just sort of okay. It's because the printing industry has changed so much. It's brutal. Due to home computers and places like Kinko's I see printers going out of business all the time. I print my own business cards on my laser printer. It's come down to the point that only those printers that own their building, (low overhead) run their own presses, or are good at brokering out the work to bigger shops, are doing okay, sort of.<br><br>Most of the work is being done on copiers, not presses as you probably already know. One of my customers is a press/bindery repair and sales company, they have sold only three presses in the last 3 years. Besides copiers, much of their sales are in the finishing end now, you can't run a copier that finishes fast enough to be profitable so at least the bindery end is still doing well.<br><br>I wish your buyer luck. With a hefty payment to you he's going to need to sell a lot of printing that just doesn't seem to be there anymore.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
