Is California Scheming to Make the Obama Economy Look Better?

Not only did California fail to report its numbers, the man in charge of the agency responsible for reporting those numbers is — cue the dramatic sting — an Obama donor.

Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California agency that substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week, contributed to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential election campaign.
—

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown appointed Morgenstern to lead the California Labor & Workforce Development Agency in 2011. The state agency oversees the Employment Development Department.

According to campaign disclosure records, Morgenstern donated $4,600 — the maximum amount allowed by law — to the 2008 Obama camapaign, beginning with a $1,000 contribution to Obama for America in February 2008. Morgenstern followed up that donation with a $1,300 contribution in June, and then a $2,300 payout in early September.
Hey azzhole did you read the early reports on Octobers numbers?

TO BE A SLAVE Between 1790 and 1860, the slave population grew from 700,000 to four
million. During this period, a distinctive African-American community developed because most
slaves lived in groups of ten or more and so were able to form a sense of community. The
reliance on natural increase meant less, new African influences on community development. The
slaves first challenge was to survive, for their life expectancy was significantly lower than
whites. Slaveholders claimed they treated their slaves more humanely than northern industrialists
treated their workers. Slaves typically lived in one-room cabins with dirt floors and a few
furnishings. Slaves received the essentials for survival like food and clothing, though neither was
adequate and were frequently supplemented by the slaves own efforts. To survive, slaves
learned how to avoid punishments and to flatter whites. Some slaves worked as house servants
but most were field hands and were under constant white supervision. Some slaves were skilled
workers, filling in the positions left vacant due to the absence of immigrant labor. But 75 percent
worked as field hands, from sunup to sundown. They performed the heavy field labor needed for
getting out a cotton crop, driven by the threat of the masters lash. Not surprisingly, many
suffered from poor health. The opening of western lands contributed to the instability of slave
life, as many were separated from their families by sale or migration and faced new hardships in
the West.

I'm getting slammed by (R) PACS on the phone and in the mailbox__what bullshyte these people are pushing. Alliance for America's future is blasting away at the EPA regarding it's war on coal. "Over the last few years" the ads say__as though Obama created the EPA.

American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS and fkn cell phone calls from strange locations___Ogden Utah for instance.

That Citizens United Act has upset the nations political balance.

The first and second Great
Awakenings introduced Christianity to many slaves. In the 1790s, African-American churches
began emerging. Whites hoped it would make the slaves obedient. But slaves found a liberating
message that strengthened their sense of community and offered them spiritual freedom.

Pres Obama, green energy, a lobby, and we are about to go bankrupt....

"As it struggled, A123 showered Democrats with donations, hired pricey lobbyist"

"The Massachusetts firm dished out nearly $1 million to hire a powerhouse lobbying firm with close ties to President Barack Obama between 2007 and 2009, and two of its top executives made personal donations to several high-profile Democrats in Congress as it won federal funding for its efforts to build the next generation of lithium batteries for electric vehicles."

The point of opening a business is to make money. It is not to employ more people than you need or longer than you need them. It is not to give people health insurance or vacation pay. You open a business because you have an idea that you think will be a success. Under this president it is not worth the risk.
