If you're wrong, all the trillions spent on your fantasy are wasted, and may in fact be pushing the world in the wrong direction.
Trillions spent on global warming science? And you call others dumbasses?

Sure stupid, Romney's remarks about the 47% and Ryan's remarks about a nation of takers wasn't divisive at all. Fortunately the majority of voters saw right through this. Only idiots like you bought into it.
yep! Baby! Carol is so emerged on her stupidity she has zero credibility on her posts, that's just how stupid she is.

Republicans provided one year of comedy called the campaign complete with video, Ryan losing the debate to Biden and fate dealing out 47% to whats-his-name, your candidate.
When neither President Bush attended the GOP convention may have been a sign that the party was in trouble.
You might attempt to find something positive about your party rather than carping on your failures ?
You do know that Lincoln invited Carl Marks to the US. But Marks could not leave England at that time so he sent a representative in his place. Lincoln studied Carl Marks philosophes.

BUREAU OF LABOR AND STATISTICS - JANUARY 4, 2013
The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 555,708 in the week ending January 12, an increase of 2,360 from the previous week. There were 525,422 initial claims in the comparable week in 2012.

You'll have to explain to me how this is good news.
Carol, these are seasonal changes.

As you were told before.

Retailers & shippers hire people for the holidays & then lay them off.

But this is typical for you right whiners. When these retailers were hiring & boosting the actual numbers then where you??? Ignoring it?

When your party was on the rails, they held both houses of Congress from the 1930's when you were a teenager up until your party became the socialist party and went offf the rails losing control of Congress in the 80's:

I love it how the rabid right searches for a negative statistics & then harps on it.

For example, in this poor job market, more kids are going to college & getting education. This would lower your precious stat. A stat that has been decreasing since 2001.

Erick Erickson:

Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.

Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

I can only base my opinions and beliefs on the current parties and since I believe that women, Gays, Blacks and all Americans are all worthy of equal treatment and equal rights. It appears that based on actions and deeds the Democratic party is far more in tune with those beliefs.

See how it has stayed above the line since June, 2009? That's the broadest measure of our economy, you argue that its worse today than it was in Jan, 2009 when the growth rate was -7%.
That's insanity.
That's powerful.

But instead they waste all of their time relentlessly trying to find any and everthing that will reflect bad on the Democrats. Seemingly totally unaware of their many short comings, like equal rights for women, discrimination with Blacks and other ethnic groups, and all the while boasting of their religious and moral superiority and self righteous indignations. Their total love affair with the very rich and corporate America. Which was more than proven with selecting a smug tight azzed Richie Rich as their candidate for president.

Then maybe you should get your history straight bonehead.

Percentage wise, more Democrats voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than Republicans.

You just lie & say chit like this now for your class race & warfare purposes, Boris.
