The Right Freaks Out As GOP Poll Finds 20% Of Republicans May Vote For Obama

A major freak out is occurring on the right as a new poll released by a Republican polling company has found that 20% of Republicans are more likely to vote for Obama.

Here's the link to the actual poll: http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/20-of-republicans-leaning-to-obama/

So I know there's been a lot of discussion over electability when it comes to President Obama. But it would appear to me that 2012 may be very much like 1980 -- instead of Reagan Democrats, however, we get Obama Republicans.

It's a sentiment I can understand -- the GOP field is pretty thin. And it also supports the theory that people may CALL themselves conservatives, but on actual issues, are much less so.

Obama is far too conservative and business friendly for me. I'll continue to push for a real liberal progressive. I still won't vote for him.

On the other hand, it looks like I won't have to.

Afganistan -- world place of trouble

Russia is a biggest country. But big territory means big problems. Now im in the north part of Russia (city of Murmansk).

People of there is very educated. They like to talk about politics. And they think that USA did not do anything to stop drug traffic from Afganistan. In this video i gives an ultimatum for USA government, because Russia can answer for it.

It's all Greek to me!

The Greek language is to blame for the Greek financial collapse, one professor Keith Chen of the Yale university was cited by several sources. The conclusions from his research (pdf) claim that the specifics of human speech determine our approach to planning for the future and the way we prepare for the coming challenges.

He examines the questions of syntax related to human behavior in various spheres of life, like our proneness to save, and the way we think about retirement. The categorization he proposes divides the languages into two. In the first group are those which make a significant distinction between the present and past tense (i.e. Strong Future Languages) like Greek and English. Those languages urge people to make fewer decisions about future events. And the second group, where the difference between present and past tense is diluted (Weak Future Languages) like German and Mandarin, are making people more provident (of course he'd prop up the language of his origin).
