Just moving off the abortion debate ( briefly, I suspect !) have you read the republican rantings blaming brown people for the end of america, makes Mr Hair sound vaguely sane !
“The battle to take over the Republican Party begins today and the failed Republican leadership should resign,” said Richard Viguerie, a top activist and chairman of ConservativeHQ.com.
He said the lesson on Romney’s loss to President Obama on Tuesday is that the GOP must “never again” nominate a “a big government established conservative for president.”

And Romney was a liberal since when ?
Out in the land, though, some hard-core conservatives spared no hyberbole in expressing their anguish over Obama’s victory. The political blog for the Cincinnati Enquirer reported
that a tea party group in Warren County, Ohio, sent an email Wednesday morning saying “the world mourns the loss of America. Socialists, welfare and unions took over this country yesterday. Today I wear black. The day America died.”

They're well worth reading for the humor.
Meanwhile, back in the real world, and actually looking at reality, I really suggest that you people in the US read this. This is called budgeting, most of us do it at home. When it fails it's called bankrupcy.
Well, this is what your media don't tell you about the state of the US's finances.
Time to loot another country guys......

With the rise of baby boomer entitlements and steady increase in overall debt levels, mandatory spending and interest payments have exploded in recent years. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office predicted in 2010 that the US government’s TOTAL revenue would be exceeded by mandatory spending and interest expense within 15-years.
That’s a scary thought. Except it happened the very next year.
3) In Fiscal Year 2011, the federal government collected $2.303 trillion in tax revenue. Interest on the debt that year totaled $454.4 billion, and mandatory spending totaled $2,025 billion. In sum, mandatory spending plus debt interest totaled $2.479 trillion… exceeding total revenue by $176.4 billion.
For Fiscal Year 2012 which just ended 37 days ago, that shortfall increased 43% to $251.8 billion.
In other words, they could cut the entirety of the Federal Government’s discretionary budget
– no more military, SEC, FBI, EPA, TSA, DHS, IRS, etc.– and they would still be in the hole by a quarter of a trillion dollars.
4) Raising taxes won’t help. Since the end of World War II, tax receipts in the US have averaged 17.7% of GDP in a very tight range. The low has been 14.4% of GDP, and the high has been 20.6% of GDP.
If you guys were awake, this would have been what your election was about.
And now, back to abortion.........
And back in Romneys world today......
And in Obama's......
