You know the saying--if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck... I guess Obama has decided he may as well stop pretending and go ahead and use a slogan for his campaign that has a historic association with Socialism. The Obama campaign announced today its slogan for 2012 is "Forward." Wikipedia states "The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications."

YES on Issue 3

I look forward to the day when all gambling is legal in this no-fun state. Though this is a limited approval, I feel it's the best way so move forward. Next poker rooms will be allowed, then slots in taverns.

My friends and I gamble all the time. We choose to bet on Football, Baseball, Basketball, Nascar, golf and bowling. Hell, I bet $50 that the national anthem of the 2009 superbowl would be over 2 minutes and 3 seconds - and won. Oh how she warbled! It would be nice to be able to get firm lines on these events - we need a local sport book.
