I would like to thank the readers for hanging with "The Lid" for another year.  This was the biggest single year for traffic we have ever had with over 1.2 Million Page views and about 1 Million individual visits. Beyond those numbers there are 750 people who get the day's stories via the email list; 1,100 who subscribe via the Lid Feed and 2,000 who get the feed via facebook.  Put it all together you are in good company as around 6,600 people a day are reading these pages in one form or another.

As it is our tradition, the last five days of the year we post which stories you enjoyed the most... based on total traffic the top fifty posts of the year.  Today we present #41-50..if you click on the title you can read the entire post:

50: Buffet Rule? ANOTHER Warren Buffet Company Sued For Not Paying Taxes:  March 11, 2012 Once again Warren Buffet is revealed to be nothing but a hypocrite. On one hand he is a proponent of higher government taxes on successful people,  on the other hand companies under his control are refusing to pay their fair share of taxes. Berkshire Hathaway, the investment company which he runs and owns a major share of, owes close to a billion dollars to the IRS. According to the IRS, a second company NetJets Inc also owes the taxpayers some cash.
49: Olympic Committee On Munich Moment of Silence Refusal: "Muslims Tied Our Hands': July 17, 2012 According to Spitzer, earlier this year when the two met in person Rogge protested his inability to act saying his hands were tied by admission of 46 Arab and Muslim members to the IOC. “No,” Spitzer she responded, “my husband’s hands were tied, not yours.” 
48: The Seven Strangest Liberal Media Reactions To The First Debate : October 4th 2012.  Many of you might remember that Obama totally blew his first debate with Mitt Romney.  He was so bad the mainstream media couldn't cover up how bad he was....although they tried real hard. In this post we covered the seven strangest attempts.
47:Withdrawing My Endorsement of Rick Santorum:  March 23, 2012. In early February (and for the first time ever) I endorsed a candidate during the primary season-Rick Santorum.  In late March I withdrew that endorsement.  Why? Because Santorum said he believed it would be better to stick with Obama than change to Romney. Sadly he got his wish.
46: Second Wives,Tax Returns and Skeletons in the MSM's Closets: January 18, 2012 ABC News Made Newt Gingrich's second marriage an issue with by interviewing his second wife.  At the same time the mainstream media followed the Obama campaigns direction and began questioning Mitt Romney's tax returns. So we decided to ask some questions of the media. Why is the press working so hard to find and expose skeletons in the GOP candidates’ closets when they still haven't bothered to look inside Barack Obama's closet?
45: Obama To Israel: DROP DEAD! September 11, 2012  Obama actually said this to Israel many times during the past four years.  This one came when both Obama and Netanyahu were in NY to meet with the UN General Assembly. Much of the big news on the anniversary of 9-11 came from the Middle East. There was the attack on the US Embassies in Egypt and Libya and the reports of Obama's refusal to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu when he comes to the United States at the end of September.
44:  A Question For Israel Independence Day: If Obama Was President in 1948 Would He Have Recognized Israel? April 24, 2012 -Sixty-four years ago (by the Hebrew calender) Israel declared her independence.  Israel's independence would have been short lived were it not for the strong will of President Harry S Truman, who became the new Jewish State's first international supporter, not because of any political stance, but because he thought it was the right thing to do. When Israel’s Chief Rabbi, Isaac Herzog, visited the White House after Israel declared her independence he told Truman, “God put you in your mother’s womb so that you would be the instrument to bring the rebirth of Israel after 2000 years.” This post took a look at how Truman made his decision and wonders if Barack Obama would have made the same decision.
 43: Maxine Waters & Sheila Jackson Lee: Dumb, Dumber-er and "On The Take" February 16, 2012 My old boss Loretta used to say it over and over until  it was riveted into my brain. "Jeff" she would say, "It's easy dealing with stupid people, and it's easy dealing with nasty people, but I can't deal with people who are both stupid AND nasty. That is a deadly combination!" I can't help thinking when she said that, she was thinking about Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson Lee. Each has Loretta's deadly combination plus, as and added benefit, have used public dollars to enrich themselves indirectly through their spouses.
 42: Who Owns Debbie Wasserman Schultz?   March 19, 2012 Have you ever wondered what Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) does when she isn't on TV mindlessly repeating the president's talking points?  Well, like most members of congress she is raising money for her next reelection campaign to represent parts of Southern Florida. Despite her Florida district she gets her campaign donations from some very national sources,  making this observer wonder just who owns Debbie Wasserman Schultz? The analysis below looks at the top 100 donors to the DNC Chair's campaign and her PAC (many donors donated to both). All of the data comes from, and covers her donations after the 2010 campaign.
 41. EXCLUSIVE: The REAL Reason They're Digging Up Arafat Today  November 27, 2012 The news reports about why they are digging up Yasser Arafat are all lies! Read the below and you will learn the real reason the murderer is being exhumed today.

Last June a Swiss lab ran radioisotope tests on his the deceased mass murderer. The Lab found "very small" quantities of polonium, an isotope that is naturally present in the environment. The quantities were higher than one would normally find in the environment, especially in Arafat's underwear and hospital clothing ( I am not making this part up).
Tomorrow look for numbers 31-40
