    I can’t decide, would probably vote for All of the Above πŸ˜‰ Use all of HelenK’s suggestions as Team Obama cranks out more conspiracy bait we could build a tinfoil factory. Jobs created.

    I love Tinfoil Tuesday because it let’s me get in touch with my inner right and left wingnut self without being labeled as such. I’m a political maniac……oh, and I like to dance /snork……

    unemployment at depression levels
    one side says unemployment compensation keeps workers from looking for a job.
    But I remember reading a while ago that many companies would not hire you if you were unemployed.
    catch 22

      Unemployment benefits actually keep employers from hiring people. Every time we extend unemployment benefits, employers have to pay higher premiums. So like our dinky company for example, one thing we have to take into consideration before we hire anybody right now is, can we afford to pay the unemployment insurance on them? At the moment the answer is no. We can’t afford all the taxes that go with payroll.

    Cain’s accuser lives in the same building as…… Axelrod. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

      Things that make you go hmmmm…….

      I’m not really interested in the Cainspiracy, except it’s a lot more fun to talk about then potential war with Iran.

      Oh, now, it’s the Obama campaign that’s plotting against Cain? I thought it was Romney that they were worried about.

      Psst, I heard she filed for bankruptcy once. Cain’s oppo research turned that up and you know you can never believe a woman who’s filed for bankruptcy, especially when she refused to fellate some creepy guy just because he made it a condition of employment.

      • votermom says:

        Tinfoil Tuesday means all theories are examined, including the one that says Obama and Romney are colluding to attack Cain. And the one that says Cain is a Romney plant anyway* (see how he never attacks Romney) so it has to be Obama or Perry (which explains why Cain first blamed Perry and then blamed the Dems).

        *Goes with the theory that Bachmann is also a Romney plant.

    Always loved this story about tinfoil:

    [One] year the Dutch television news reported that the government had introduced a new way to detect hidden televisions (in many countries in Europe, one must pay a television licence to fund public broadcasting) by simply driving through the streets with a new detector, and that the only way to keep your television from being detected was to wrap it in aluminum foil. Within a few hours all aluminum foil was sold out throughout the country.

    (rapidsteps.com)

    It’s also said, back in the days of b/w tvs only, that plastic wrap was sold out in no time, following a rumour that if you stuck it unto your tv screen, you’d be able to watch in colour. πŸ˜€

      I don’t know about it being OT…seems pretty tin foil friendly, in a WTF kind of way to me πŸ™‚

      • Susan says:

        If taxpayer dollars pay for it, it damn well better be a “holiday” tree. As a Christian, I don’t want some Scientologist or other bizarre belief pushed on me in the workplace because some knucklehead like Scott Walker wanted to flex his stringy little muscles by promoting Chrisitanity in the taxpayer funded workplace.

        • votermom says:

          My first reaction is that you’re right, separation of church & state, after all.
          My second contrarian thought though is that should a menorah in a public space be called Holiday Candles?
          Do we go the way of banning all organized religious icons or do we go the way of allowing any religious icons? What is more tolerant? What is more constitutional?
