  • earthquake
    kaykow
    I am a federal worker. I felt the earthquake. I had no intention of leaving. I was going to leave at my normal time. However, my boss strongly insisted that I leave so I did. There were huge crowds of people that I had to wade through to get to the metro. Once I got to metro, it too was crowded. I got on a train and it was also crowded. I got of the train in Vienna and retrieved my car. I then had to drive home in extreme 'rush hour' traffic. I think it was crazy to send everyone home at the same time especially since our building were still standing and the shaking had stopped. Even though I got to leave early, I got home 1 1/2 hours later than I usually do.

    The Weather Channel is reporting the east coast earthquake was caused by an unknown fault line running under D.C. and through Va. It is now being called Obama's Fault, though Obama will say it's really Bush's Fault. Other theories are that what we believed to be an earthquake was actually the effects of a 14.6 trillion dollar check bouncing in Washington.

    Your play on words was really pathetic. I guess you have nothing better to do, but regurgitate anti Obama slop. You are unable to speak the truth, so you have to resort to this nonsense.----------I guess we had a choice. It was either to stimulate the economy with the increase in deficit or stay in, at minimum, a minor depression at maximum a 1929 depression. I'll go with the stimulating the economy and hope that the Republicans will allow the payoff of the debt when prosperity returns.

    Your play on words was really clever and funny. With everything going on in the world, we need a sense of humor. Thanks for the chuckle, Rob!

    I am leaving out Linda because she is not of the same political beliefs as the others. I just wonder what you would write if, instead of Obama listed, it was one of the Republican hopefuls, Reagan, or Bush. Would you be so complementary of Rob's words? I have my doubts.-----------Linda, you and I will have to disagree on this one. I have complemented Contrarian and Xtaxman on their humor. Both appear to be right of center, but their humor was good. Rob's comments were pathetic and not a thinly veiled attempt at aiming barbs at Obama. And yes, I have a life and a good sense of humor when something is truly funny. Rob's comments were not funny in the least.--------I cannot comment about mom in law because I do not know her writings.

    Linda
    I would laugh even if it was reversed. I am socially liberal and fiscally conservatvie. In other words, I don't care who you marry, or what your religious beliefs are as long as I don't have to pay for it. If you're on Welfare you should be on required birth control!!! I also think taxes were reduced too much with the Bush Tax cuts, and I'm a dink, so I will pay big time when they go away and with the deficit, let alone the debt, that is going to have to happen.

    If it was funny it would laugh also. I saw no humor in Rob's comments. I saw very little imagination in Rob's comments. I saw nothing but a pathetic attempt to condemn Obama and those to the left of radical right Rob. It definitely was not funny in my mind and I said so in no uncertain terms.

    MichaelF
    Contrary to news reports, the Pentagon did not evacuate. However, many employees voluntarily left early. I went home at my usual time and drove home to Montgomery County, MD. The only traffic problem was a bottle-neck in Rock Creek Park. I never go home via the Beltway. Even on good days, it is just too slow.

    Q: How do you tell the difference between a moderate and a liberal? A: Liberals have no sense of humor! You know what feds in California and Alaska do after a high 5 to mid 6 earthquake? They wait for the building to stop shaking and go back to work! Once again, DC proves there is no issue so small that it can't be blown all out of proportion.
