Oh, Susan, say it ain't so. Poole's is not really closing, is it? I know one customer isn't going to help much, but if you can somehow see to keep going, I'll ignore my budget and eat lunch with you more often. I may even try to get up earlier a few days a month to come in for breakfast. If you can't, I understand. All things pass eventually. Thanks so much for all the good food you put out over the years.

Panic City for me...what am I gonna do for dem grits and eggs now??!!

gacpl commented on Thursday, Oct 11, 2012 at 18:15 PM

another case of hinesville residents, and the military community not supporting the local community.

PoliticsNation commented on Thursday, Oct 11, 2012 at 18:53 PM

I'm sorry to hear that. It would be nice if the community would host a fund raiser on Pooles behalf. I pledge $100.00 if the reason there closing is becuase of finances and we have a set amount to keep it open. This brings a small town flair to the community...a place where you eat a good meal and see ole friends...I would also voulnteer my time to help.

Small Businesses beware if he is somehow miraculously re-elected!

how many people did they employ?

Fiscally irresponsible Compasionate Conservatism put us in this mess. To further the decent into financial Hell is to support more decline in voting a Romney - Ryan ticket.

BHO by a nose at the wire. (OHIO)

"Fiscally irresponsible Compasionate Conservatism put us in this mess."

PULEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZ! The leadership for the last four years - and especially the first two of Obama's term - has been "fiscally irresponsible Tax and Spend Democratism." That's why the mess we were in four years ago is far worse now.

Forget Obama's ever-growing nose. Vote for Romney if you want to move FORWARD toward Change We Can Believe In.

Remember in November.

leadership for the last four years??

hasn't been any, that's the problem

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Oct 18, 2012 at 14:11 PM

Did not mean to ignore the board. Been out driving my new Caddy I bought with the SS check BHO is sending me.

Hi Sebe: your PULEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZ, reminded me of Gomer Pyle's USMC Guhhhhh-ahhhhhhhh-llleeeeeee. You remember that one don't you?

But more to the point re: compassionate conservatism which the Boy King ran on when he lost the popular vote to Al Gore and stole the Electoral victory in Florida, thus giving him the bully pulpit to thrust us into a Budget Busting unnessesary War in Iraq. Trillions and still counting. THAT, my friend is THE PRIMARY REASON we are in the downward fiscal spiral that BHO is trying to get us out of. Compassionate Conservatism was the term utilized by the Republicans and the Boy king which got him in position to make his fiscally ill advised trillion dollar mistakes!!!!

The majority of voting Americans rejected Bush's Compassionate Conservatism moniker before his theft of the election in 2000. They knew Compassionate Conservatism was akin to a nymphomaniac referring to themself as a virgin.

BHO has his boxing gloves on now that a new Republican candidate has emerged with the same sort of disastorous ideology espoused by the Boy King and Carl Rove.

I am looking for a knock out instead of TKO;

It is still: BHO by a nose at the wire.

sebekm commented on Thursday, Oct 18, 2012 at 17:10 PM

Yes - I remember Gomer Pyle. I especially remember him invoking a "citizen's arrest" of Barney in one episode. We The People ought to invoke a citizen's arrest of the so-called leadership in Washington, D.C. on November 6th.

Invoking Bush and Rove and the war in Iraq is invoking the past. We're talking about AND VOTING FOR the future in 2012. We're evaluating whether the so-called leadership in Washington, D.C. has EARNED "four more years" based on what is most important to the voters of this country.

And what's most important to the majority of the voters in this country? Hint: it ain't Boy Kings, Carl Rove, Compassionate Conservatism or nymphomaniacs (although I'm not sure about the last one).

If there's a knock out, I predict it will be scored by Romney.

P.S. Congrats on the new wheels. I'm getting some new ones soon, too - although my money isn't coming from Obama. I subscribe to the philosophy espoused by Grady Wilson in that terrific episode of Sanford and Son. The gist of it is that when he started paying into SS his dollar was worth a dollar. Now - a lifetime later - his dollar was only worth a quarter. So in SS the people are simply getting their hard-earned money back from a government that has been permitted to use it.

So it's the PEOPLE's money - not Obama's money (although you'd never know that by how he spends it).

Hi Sebe: I feel people have to be reminded of what Republicanism, no matter their phraseology that they run on is still the same as Compassionate Conservatism, especially in this election. Deregulation and massive tax cuts for the well off. It also used to be called: Trickle Down and other terms.

BHO was trapped by this economic thinking inflicted upon him and the American people. And we are paying dearly for it now.

I, like someothers here, am ACTUALLY BETTER OFF than I was 4 years ago thanks in large part to investments and purchases made during the Clintonian years of prosperity. I benifitted immensely from Demo economic policy and Clinton's deft handling of the Bosnian war involving little debt or American loss of life.

So NO, Sebe. I will continue to endorse and advocate the Demo alternative to whatever Republicans are selling; especially Romny-Ryan and their voucher and tax proposal recipes for disaster.

BHO, the Democrat, is the better choice of the two.

I understand, Jimmy. But I think Romney-Ryan have the momentum, and the advantage in closing the deal in the final debate - especially since it will be moderated by Grandpa Bob Schieffer (who ain't no Candy Crowley when it comes to moderating).

I do find it curious that they would schedule the final debate directly opposite Monday Night Football starring my beloved Chicago Bears vs. the Darth Vaders of the NFL - the Detroit Lions. I'll admit that I won't be watching much of the debate this time around (unless the Lions are routing my boys). So I'll have to turn on the talking heads afterwards to find out who "won." (I usually do so by watching the "news"/cable outlets with the sound MUTED. You can tell who won by the expression on their faces.)

sebekm commented on Friday, Oct 19, 2012 at 14:19 PM

I guess we hi-jacked Pat's blog. Oh well - here I go again:

...and speaking of closing the deal, according to "multiple polls," Romney has cracked the 50% barrier in favorability (or the "Likeability Factor").

See: http://washingtonexaminer.com/for-fir...

This is significant because as we approach the election, the two candidates appear to be trending in opposite directions in this area. My analysis is that the people finally got to see and hear Romney unfiltered during the debates - without the prior ubiquitous Dem noise. Also, Romney's actual nomination finally gave him access to the big pot of campaign funds which let him finally fight back on television and radio airways.

Romney's objective now should be to stay the course and not screw things up. Monday night's debate should be no problem, as Bob Schieffer as moderator is more like Gentleman Jim Lehrer than Contentious Candy Crowley. The sole debate topic was announced as "foreign policy," although I'm sure both candidates will be able to sneak their points on other issues in - much the same as we here hi-jack these blogs.

...and the fragmentation of Dem support continues:

Hi Brother Jimmy, you are indeed a patriot; however you seem to be having a case of Darseynesia.

The great of Clinton years were supported by cutting capital gains taxes, cutting spending and welfare reform; even though the top 2% paid 39% instead 35% federal income taxes.
And you have forgotten that Newt Gingrich was 3rd in Command as the Speaker as he actually worked with Bill Clinton to triangulate and promote the best ideas from both sides to influence prosperity for all. All of his proposals had to be endorsed by Newt before it went to the President.

President Obama is a Progressive and he don’t believe in free market ideas, over 300 conservative economists asked him not to do the stimulus and the Republicans attempted to add some measures to Obamacare to keep costs down and pass a bipartisan bill and BHO rejected it all. This is his mess now and I don’t understand why you don’t realize the truth! Obamacare never passed constitutional muster in the Senate, so Nancy Pelosi Deemed and passed the Senate bill in House and sent it to BHO. That’s crooked legislation and is BHO’s responsibility. He has really disappointed me and most of the country with his integrity.

Darseynesia, my friend!

Mitt Romney by a huge swing state landslide.
