Your members of Congress are voting to protect and promote your conservative ideals, right?
They are fighting to safeguard your conservative values, correct?
Don’t be so sure…
Given the disturbing facts outlined to the right, we have our work cut out in establishing and maintaining a strong conservative majority within the Republican Party.

On the index, only 47 members, or 19% of the conference, met or exceeded expectations to fully utilize their seats to promote conservatism. If you expand that threshold to those who were within -5, the number increases to 74, still dismal.

Lincolnton Furniture Company, praised for bringing jobs back to US, closes

By Cameron Steele
The Charlotte Observer

Lincolnton Furniture Company closed abruptly Thursday just one year after it was hailed by President Barack Obama as an example of the recovering U.S. economy.

Furniture-making operations stopped indefinitely and only a few people will remain employed moving forward, company financial officer Ben Causey said.

“I don’t know where it’s going to go exactly; we’re still evaluating our situation,” Causey said.“We just didn’t have any choice at this point.”

The company was not receiving the orders it needed to sustain its operations, Causey said.

“We needed more orders is really what it boiled down to,” he said.“We thought they would materialize.”

Owner Bruce Cochrane, a fifth generation furniture-manufacturer, formed the company in 2011 with a $5 million investment and the hope he could make a profit off people who wanted to buy furniture made in America.

It was a move that caught the attention of North Carolina officials and those in the White House. Last year, Cochrane sat with the first lady during Obama’s 2012 State of the Union Address. He also joined the president and other business leaders in a discussion about how to create more jobs at home.

Attempts late Thursday to reach Cochrane were unsuccessful. Causey said company officials were thankful for the support they received from the community over the past year-and-a-half.

Jerry Cochrane, Bruce Cochrane’s uncle and former Lincoln County Commissioner, learned about the company’s closing Thursday.

“I was surprised that they stopped the operation this quickly,” he said.“But starting a furniture business now is very difficult in this country.”

Last week, the Gaston Gazette recognized Bruce Cochrane as one of its “persons of the year” in 2012 for starting the furniture-manufacturing in his hometown.

“Everybody was rooting for us and wanted us to succeed,” Causey said.

Truth you say? Here's some truth for you, you stumpbroke, open-spined gibberish-spouting illiterate. Your sh!t religion descends directly from a culture so steeped in death, they spent their entire lives preparing for it. Its symbols are even on our money (now don't go looking at your food stamps, illiterate, the symbols aren't THERE!). The great trick that wily old Constantine thought up was the "everlasting life for peasants" thing. It's easy to sh!t on hare-brained automatons, even get you to eat it, and ENJOY it when you dangle that insipid pap in front of their bedazzled eyes. Witness you and your topix mate, carol. But it's getting harder and harder to push it on rational people. The threat of hell just ain't what it used to be, nor is the lure of "heaven."
Get somebody to translate this for you, nano-brain.

Oh, yeah, and blow me again. Get under the rim this time.
Naw, pass, no thanks, nada. not interested. Youstooge for audio duhmmies doesn't impress me...unless it's something with a little bit of comedy that offers a break from the plagues of nothing but hateful ignorance that abounds these days...which I could then search out for myself, beyond easily.

However, I shall reiterate again, on another point---You REALLLLLY need to get in the right century too... this isn't ancient Rome either...this is 21st century USofA-- 2013!!!

Ya might want to change the herd packs you're licking with there Mr-the dark age ignorance is obviously affecting you-the negative nasty of slimeduhm is just oozing out your posts!

<quoted text> That's funny because I read an article in the huffington post dated Sept 24, 2012 that clearly stated", the bush era tax cuts did little if anything to stimulate the economy". In fact it did the opposite. It also says that the tax cuts were specifically targeted for the rich & did nothing for the middle class & poor. Hence the only class that made extreme profit was the rich. Obama on the other hand in 1 term produced more millionaires than bush in his 2 terms. You want to try another 1?
IT didn't apply to welfare-one had to be of the WORKING class TAX PAYING (NOt just draining) sector.

Sorry you missed it. JOBS for people- are good for stuff like that!!
