Hiya!

I've been lurking sometimes lately to see what my old friends here think of this and that, especially as the election approaches... (I had left the team sometime ago because I wasn't active here and thought I should make way for a real leader.)

Hope everyone's been well - it's funny to see my original introduction from 2007 here! And bittersweet to see ANAUTHOR's post about Palin below.

I'm 41 and still in Rhode Island.

Still quite liberal, still enjoy good (respectful) discussions about a variety of topics.

Still working on fitness and health and wellness for my one-and-only body!

Hi...I joined SP several months ago, as an adjunct to my weight/health journey...and have discovered a whole new world...and as Nate has said it's addictive!

I've decided to join your team in hopes of (as Rachel Maddow says) being "talked down" occasionally...there are times when that I get in a knot about one thing or another...politics for one...religion seems to be another button...

...and I just need a fresh perspective, or should I say...an intelligent slant on a topic that "bugs" me...

Anyway...looking forward to talking/sharing with you! emoticon

Hi Team.

Briefly, I got into SP to lose a few pounds with some other eye doctors. I've now discovered that it is an addictive microcosm.

I like the idea of this team. I'll post more of my tiny grievances later.

I really like the team logo photo....

Sometimes I just want to stand on the table and shout, "I love my wife, my life, and my kids!"

Don't you feel like that sometimes?

Hi! I have always wanted a soapbox. When I was a little girl in Chicago, there was a park at which anyone and one could literally did get up on a soapbox and speak your peace or piece. I often heard men going on and on about injustice (usually to them) and need (usually theirs). My mama walked me very quickly by those men while I would have stood there and listened.

So here we are. emoticon viv

When anybody asks me who I am, I tell them I'm a child of God!

Please read and tell me what is wrong with this article. I fear we cannot afford Obama.

Breaking News from MoneyNews.com

Obama's $1 Trillion Deficit Coming, Bill Gross Says

Bill Gross, the bond-fund-manager superstar, not only thinks Barack Obama will be elected president, but that the nation’s budget deficit, now nearly $500 billion, will explode to $1 trillion.

Gross, a registered Republican, wrote an open letter to Obama on the Web site of PIMCO, where Gross is co-chief investment officer. “You have inherited a mess,” Gross writes.

Editor's Note: Read Newsmax's Special Report — the Coming Obama Stock Market Crash by Wall Street Journal writer John Fund —
Go Here Now.

“What do I think you should do as the new president to rectify this mess? All I know is that any solution will come with a high price tag.”

Higher taxes on the wealthy and oil companies won’t make up for the additional spending that Obama will have to approve to pull the economy out of recession, Gross argues.

“So you’re gonna do the tax thing [relief for the middle/lower class], Mr. President, and throw in some form of universal healthcare to boot that your buddy Hillary will help spearhead,” Gross writes.

“In addition, you’ll need to provide some immediate relief to homeowners in the form of FHA subsidies and low mortgage rate loans… By January, home prices will be down another 10 percent or so and our Japanese-style property deflation will be in full stride.”

Put that all together, and you get a massive budget deficit, according to Gross. “You’ll have your tax bill and your healthcare bill and your housing fix, and somehow it’ll all be paid for by wealthy hedge fund managers, oil companies or a robust economy,” he writes.

“Uh, I don’t think so, Mr. President. That’s where the ‘yes we can’ morphs into ‘no we can’t.’ Not that you won’t accomplish most of that. It’s just that you won’t be able to pay for it, and it’s better to admit it now.”

To some extent, the next president will be helpless, Gross maintains. “While the Republicans will blame you for years and label you ‘Trillion Dollar Obama’ in future campaigns, there is in fact not much that you or another president can do,” he writes.

“You’ve inherited an asset-based economy whose well has been pumped nearly dry with lower and lower interest rates and lender of last resort liquidity provisions that have managed to support Ponzi-style prosperity in recent years.”

As the economy needs $500 billion of stimulus, and the budget deficit already totals almost $500 billion, that leaves a deficit of $1 trillion, probably by 2011, Gross says.

To be sure, that still would leave us in better shape than Japan in the 1990s, he points out. The $1 trillion deficit would amount to about 6 percent of GDP, which pales next to the 10 percent figure in Japan in 1998.

But the result won’t be pretty for investors, Gross says. Once the economy recovers, inflation will rise, “as the government bonds acquired during the recession are transformed once again into risk bearing assets and high levels of investment,” he writes.

“That suggests that intermediate and long-term yields on government bonds have already bottomed and will gradually rise throughout your first, and perhaps second, administration. Your term will not go down in history as investor friendly.”

Actually, I've been lurking in the elections board and I followed your page here! Thanks!

I'm staying away from debating the election for the most part. I have to deal with enough of that from DH's relatives. He comes from a very political family (His grandfather was a prominent politician in this state and ran for congress 3 times).

Cheers!

Hello all, Hermione here. I tend to be pretty conservative in my views, but not militantly so. I like a good debate as long as the respect and love remains. emoticon I don't get offended terribly often (you can only take offence, it can't be forced upon you!) but if I have an issue with someone, I keep it cool and resolve it as peacefully as possible. But reading most of the posts here, I highly doubt that will ever come up. emoticon

Bring on the love!

Cheers!
Hermione

Well MANSMAMOMI finally convinced me to come over and check this place out between her and Jill I was always out of the loop!

So I'm Fitzy, currently in NorCal and looking for some good debates and a good place to rant. MANSMAMOMI1 and Jill have gotten sick of my so I figured I'd find some new people to rub the wrong way lol.

Fitzy ;)

Hi guys, I'm new. I've made my first 3 or 4 posts in this group and am sure I've already pissed people off and raised blood pressure. :P

I'm good friends in real life with HappyMel, so yeah...don't hold it against her.

Hi I'm Diana. I joined this team several days ago, but am just now posting. I admit that I wanted to read old posts and get a feel for this group before "sticking my nose in" I must say that I am pleasantly surprised to find that even tho there are many different views and opinions here everyone seems to be respectful and to defend their own opinions intelligently instead of resorting to name calling and insults. I will try hard not to not offend anyone if I do I promise it will not be intentional. Who knows maybe some of my own thoughts and opinions will be changed by being here.

Hi! I'm Jody. I was browsing some of the postings on this team, very interesting subjects. I love to talk to people with different views. My views tend to stray from the norm. I like to think of myself as pretty open minded. In my opinion, you can always learn from other's point of view. If nothing else, it'll give you a different perspective and maybe a little peak at what it's like in someone elses shoes. I look forward to participating in some of the discussions.

Hi There

Thought I would add to this...maybe ease my way onto some folks screens a little better than I normally do *snicker*

I am 5'7' with long flowing chestnut hair. I like long walks on the beach, and fine wine. I enjoy the smooth sounds of....hey wait a minute, wrong profile..... *giggle*...damn picture up anyways, no way to fool all you web uses now.....sigh

Ok, it is going to come out anyways so I should be honest. I am a Canuck with strong opinions, and no I am not afraid to share them. I write as I speak so the sarcastic tendencies have a way of coming out. My bark is much worse than my bite, honestly deep down inside....d-e-e-p down inside I am all mush.

I carry my soapbox everywhere I go, yes I am my own entertainment.

Good luck to you all!
Seragilo

Added thought: Somehow in these PC times, I just get lost.

My name is Simone, I live in Lanham, Maryland a Suburb of Washington, DC. I can sometimes have some unconventional view and I'm looking forward to the discussions. I read alot but normally stay away from sci/fantasy; however, I was looking at the recommended books discussion and I might be trying a few of those. I am not married and do not have children.

Hi, I'm Julia.

I'm 36, I live in Providence, Rhode Island, and enjoy a good discussion. The mutual give and take of ideas can only make us stronger.

I tend to be quite liberal in my politics and social ideas, but don't mind sharing the world with those who have different ideas.

I started this team, but I don't intend to 'own' it - I made it for everyone, and hope it may become a lively and interesting forum to visit.

I'm excited that the Soapbox has become a rather interesting place to be - thanks to all of you who make it so!!


My program consists of eating well, getting good exercise and loving life as long and hard as possible.

This is it, your only life.
