now that picture is absolutely dying for a funny caption. Sort of thing where the two are smiling for the cameras but thought bubbles tell a different story.

had a look on FOX news web page earlier on to find something about Edwards as i know nothing about him. Found his platform and with the exception of increasing capital gains tax and opposing gay marriage it's as good a program as i have ever seen.

be interesting to see how he'd finance all the stuff though.

on Captial Gains can someone who knows economics reasonably well give me a brief description of it. From my extremely limited economic knowledge it seems to be this. Taxing the money that people earn from investments. now to me that seems nonsensical. If person A invests his money then that money goes into the economic cycle thereby creating jobs (most of the time). now taxing someone for that is like punishing them for investing when surely you want people to invest in the economy of the country. Money that is hidden under the bed does no one any good at all.

Alrighty, Nick Saunders, here ya go.

Edwards: "Paper covers rock."

Kerry: "Dang!"

Edwards adds nothing but relief from snoozeville!

The Dems took an old, grey French Poodle, bought it a new collar, put a nice blaze orange vest on it and set it out in the wheat scrub - anyone but the liberals know that dog ain't gonna hunt!

I called it Lurch & Leech; let's hope that one catches on.

Capital gains is appreciation in value as compared to income from an investment. Suppose you bought a rental property. The income that you received from it would be taxed as income. Then suppose you sell the property for some amount more than you paid for it--that would be your capital gain. It's a little more complicated than that--there are things like depreciation and improvements to consider, but that's the essence--what you get for owning something is generally considered income, what you get from selling something less the original cost is capital gain.

ok brainster cheers.

Still a nonsensical tax.

I only Allah would photoshop Edwards's hand into a Vulcan "Live Long & Prosper", it'd be perfect!

I wonder what's the deal with that thumb thing Lurch, I mean Kerry, keeps doing.

"Lurch & The Kid," I like that :-)
