Would the cable networks have a dull night if Obama swept all the swing states on the Eastern Seaboard?

Question by Samian Quazi: Would the cable networks have a dull night if Obama swept all the swing states on the Eastern Seaboard?
Since the East Coast’s polls close first, and obviously we get those states’ results first, wouldn’t CNN and FOX News have to wrap things up early if Obama swept Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina?

Romney would have to give his concession speech by 8 PM and the cable networks would have a VERY dull night after 10 PM.

When did the Quarter Horse begin to be used and raised in the western United States?

Question by Javier D: When did the Quarter Horse begin to be used and raised in the western United States?
When did the Quarter Horse begin to be used and raised in the western United States? Because the breed was originally created in Virginia and the Carolinas, right?
I tell you too that I have watched photos of western Usa at the end of 19 century and horses I saw were not quarter horse,but today the most of horses I see at western Usa are quarter horse

Answer by Jeff Sadler
The quarter horse was around early but they were not popular. They did not become popular until cars became the common means of transportation. Until that time most horses were gaited. People did not like to ride non gaited horses all day long….simply put, they are too hard on your bottom and their shorter, thicker muscles lack the stamina of the longer muscled saddle type horses. But once cars took over most transportation, the QH began to reign supreme because of it fast acceleration and high performance in short bursts.

Me I am sorry but it is you who are wrong. The old time cowboys did NOT like the QH it was at that time a ‘junk’ horse. Despite the disinformation assembled by the AQHA. Look at the old time photos of the west and most of what you will see are early versions of the Saddlebred and the TWH. Tall and lanky. or mixed breed gaited horses….some of which were little things like this one

or this one…I recognize the old fashion TWH head in this one. The newer ones sport a dainty head.

Now just to be fair you would see a few QH’s back then. Here is one

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_bE7Mw-gkKG4/TPxRX4xVugI/AAAAAAAAFDY/3LAvPt2SbAk/s1600/black-cowboy.jpeg

Those were the first four nineteenth century cowboys photos I found with a horse picture. I discounted any remade shots…such as those in movies and any without horses of course. Actually the first was the QH but all the others were other breeds…..mostly gaited as I said.

And as for gaited horses being wealthy person horses or not being able to work. Utter bull. The gait has nothing to do with working ability and MFT’s were once used as both carriage horses and to pull logs and plows. Less wealthy people tended to have DRAFT horses if they needed a horse to work, not a saddle horse at all. The QH fits the bill of a work horse no better than a gaited breed….in fact less so, since horses like my mft’s fall behind at the beginning of a work day, but by the end of the day they are still going strong while the QH is quite frankly worn out. This is a subject I have studied well on, and have a considerable amount of first hand experience on.

BTW the chincoteague pony is NOT what the original quarter miler looked like. The original horse was lost long ago. The chincoteague pony has had many many generations of natural selection, moving it away from what the original quarter horse was. It is a descendant of them, but that is all.

Edit actually I just found out the Chincoteague Pony was release before the development of the quater miler in the 1600’s and more…

“Throughout the history of the Chincoteague Pony, Mustang, Arabian, Welsh Pony, and Shetland Pony bloodlines have been introduced to help solve problems created by inbreeding.” Direct quote from

Once Obama has won the prerequisite Eastern and Midwest states, will the networks call the election for him?

Question by sinkohiosink: Once Obama has won the prerequisite Eastern and Midwest states, will the networks call the election for him?
Once Obama has won all of John Kerry’s states from 2004, plus Iowa and Virginia, will the cable news networks call the election in his favor knowing that he will inevitably win Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii?

Best answer:

Answer by Chipmonk
I wish you would understand that the talking heads are not running the country. Television is a form of mind control! Use your own head and review the issues. The news media has been very unfair to McCain. Obama spent millions of dollars to buy this election. Vote McCain

History of the United States from the foundation of Virginia to the reconstruction of the Union (Volume 2)

This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1887. Not illustrated. Excerpt: … CHAPTER XVIII. CHICKAMAUGA. Burnside sent to Knoxville–Longstreet joins Bragg–Insubordination and Quarrels–Battle of Chickamauga–Grant to the Rescue-Ruinous defeat of Bragg at Chattanooga. The ‘Valley of Virginia’ is enclosed between the Alleghany Mountains on the north-west and the Blue Ridge on the south-east. These ranges run parallel for several hundred miles from the Potomac, where their course is south by west, to the southern border of Tennessee, where the trend is west by south. Winchester lies at the north of the upper part, known as the Valley of the Shenandoah, and Chattanooga at the southern entrance. The southern third of the Valley forms that district which is known as Eastern Tennessee. The battle of Murfreesborough had paralysed for nearly six months the army of Rosecranz. At the close of June 1863 Bragg with 80,000 men confronted Rosecranz with twice that number and a powerful force of cavalry on the Duck River, a tributary of the Tennessee, near the south-western skirts of the Alleghanies. The despatch of Burnside with an independent army down the Valley towards Knoxville, though he lingered as if reluctant to complete the concert which should have enveloped the Confederates, gave Rosecranz courage to advance; and Bragg fell slowly back before him, each position taken up being turned and evacuated, until he crossed the Tennessee, finally abandoned Chattanooga to the enemy, and retired into a hill country formed by three or four parallel ranges of heights, from sixty to a hundred miles in length, which ran thence due southward. Rosecranz and Burnside were alike dilatory and cautious. The latter, despite the I Chap. XVni.J LONGSTHEET SENT TO CHATTANOOGA. 393 urgent orders of Halleck, seemed in no hurry to exchange an easy and independent comm…
