Station used to own a casino in Kansas City, Missouri, but ultimately sold it out to AmeriStar. Prior to the sellout, it was an enjoyable place to go to. Now, since AmeriStar took over, the quality has gone way downhill. So much so, I tend to go to Harrah's when I'm in town visiting family.

Proof positive that Art Laffer was spot on - the Laffer curve is a reality and not just a theory.

I think the next change should be him trading the 1600 Pennsylvania Ave address for a prison cell in Leavenworth.

You mean that's all the fireworks I'm seeing?

Right now, my vote is for anybody but Obama.

Each of the three viable candidates have skeletons in their closet, so it's just a matter of who has the best chance of unseating the incompetent incumbent.

Oh, I agree, Progressives have been trying to run the show for the last 100 years <cough> Woodrow Wilson <cough> While we may never get back to the Government of the 19th Century, we can take steps towards removing some of the latest Ultra-Progressive and Socialist policies that have been put in place in recent years - Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley, No Child Left Behind, Obamacare, Patriot Act, and others.

In fact, ideally, the Dept of Education would be gone, and the 17th Amendment would be repealed (and I could think of a few amendments to add, but I digress).

Democrats should be shivering in fear - RealClearPolitics has projected the Senate at 45 Dem, 47 Rep, 8 Toss-Up. Of those 8 toss up states, only 2 are Republican held now (Scott Brown of MA and Dean Heller of NV) - If Republicans can keep the two toss-ups they currently hold, then that's 49 - 1 shy of a tie, and 2 short of control. Add to that some polls are leaning Republican on 2 Democrat held states (MT and WI) and the power will shift.

The worst thing Democrats could fear is a Republican controlled majority in both chambers - particularly if Obama gets re-elected. If he doesn't get re-elected, well, then Operation "Change it Back" will take effect, cleaning out the mistakes of the last 4 years.

I think the odds are good that both is true, plus the fact neither wants to pass a budget that is acceptable to the Republican controlled house (since neither the WH or Reid will like the cold hard truth of being reigned in like that).

Let's be honest... Dingy Harry knows they haven't passed a budget in over 1,000 days. He also knows that his parties control of the Senate is on the rocks, and with good odds will pass over to the Republicans in January. By not passing a budget, they can spend like drunken sailors until they're thrown out.

Meanwhile, Obama's re-election is on the rocks, with him in a statistical tie with Romney (and a narrow win over Santorum). He doesn't care if a budget passes or not, since he may not be in office after January. Again, no budget means his departments have Carte Blanche to spend how they want to, without being told how to spend it by congress.

I'm afraid the only way to fix this "above the law" attitude will be by Constitutional amendment.

The problem is there are not enough state legislatures willing to stick their head out to call for a Constitutional Convention (lest they irritate the pork barrel source of some of their budgets).

We can only hope and pray that voters vote for true reform by voting the political elite out at the ballot box.
