Hey, Roy, would you forgive Naomi if you came home from the vegetable stand and found her two-timin' you with a big zucchini? You remember your dad, Roy? Asphyxiated himself in the tobacco barn with Playboy in one hand and his dick in the other. Gotta leave a mark, huh?

I'd call 14% pretty awful, wouldn't you? Your sources are no better than mine, stop posing, poseur.
47 million on food stamps is nothing to brag about either.
Aren't you going to brag about the stock market?
Just saw some poor young black guy being picked up by his grandpa with all his worldly possessions in some boxes, he lost his job and was homeless. I guess he can't find one of those 5 millions new jobs Obama "created".
You missed that earlier, DJIA up 110% off its 2009 low. Pretty good if you ask me but then again, I'm aware of the non-partisan nature of markets. My ideology doesn't require that I ignore reality.

BTW, Dingus, the real issue is Obama's failure to reduce the number of unemployed, something he promised to do and IMO something he doesn't care one bit about.
Remember the pipeline he vetoed?
"Jobs??? We don't need no steenking jobs!!!" B. Obama.
The pipeline? You mean the one to Texas? Who cares whether Texans have jobs? Oklahomans? Don't you get it? What you dearly love is a pyramid scheme, and you can't keep the pyramid goin' unless there are always more of you at the bottom of the pyramid. This is what fat whites call, "growth." So, um, what happens to the top of the pyramid when the bottom doesn't get larger? It disappears, that's what. Do yourselves a favor, after burning Texas and Oklahoma to the ground, join the club for no-growth. It's the happenin' thing.

From the leftist NYT's, they are Obama azz smoochers, they wouldn't lie, would they? Face it libs, Obama doesn't care one f ing bit about jobs in the private sector:
Regulatory policy made a cameo appearance in last night’s presidential debate when Governor Mitt Romney took aim at the Obama Administration’s penchant for making rules.
“Regulations have quadrupled,” Romney said.“The rate of regulations quadrupled under this President.”
The assertion led to a mini-controversy this morning over the Obama regulatory record. Left-leaning blogger Andrew Sullivan, Salon.com , and the Huffington Post all jumped in to argue that there has been no such increase in regulation. Obama, in fact, has imposed fewer new regulations than did Bush, they claim.
But they are wrong, and Romney was right.
And for the record, I am always right.
I'll be sure to let you know when you're right, hasn't happened yet but I promise you'll be the first to know.

Your NYT article was from 2010.

"Far more telling are the numbers of “major” rules: those that will cost the private sector $100 million or more each year. We found that 106 such major new regulations have been adopted during the Obama years, compared to 28 under Bush—a ratio of 3.8 to 1. In terms of cost, Obama’s rules imposed some $46 billion in additional annual burdens, compared to $8.1 billion in new costs during the first three Bush years, a whopping 5.6 to 1 ratio.
These numbers should not be surprising: President Obama has hardly been shy about making the case for increased regulation, and the record reflects that. Governor Romney was right to point that out"

From the way this society is headed, looks like some "micro management" is called for. Republican=the New Mentally Insane

Anytime doing away with assault weapons is called on to prevent these horrific crimes and it is interpreted as a "violation" of your "right to bear arms"...Insanity like this needs to be contained!

I think if liberal lackeys really wanted to work they'd just suck it up and hit the employment center at Walmart.. The fact that they won't just proves they're a bunch of lazy slackers.

Afraid to cite your Heritage Foundation blog?

I'd be embarrassed too if I were you.

Actually, if I were you I'd just keep my mouth shut to avoid such embarrassment.

How the 'Elite' Will Sell Global Collapse To The Masses

Thursday, January 31, 2013

The globalists have stretched the whole of the world thin. They have removed almost every pillar of support from the edifice around us, and like a giant game of Jenga, are waiting for the final piece to be removed, causing the teetering structure to crumble. Once this calamity occurs, they will call it a random act of fate, or a mathematical inevitability of an overly complex system. They will say that they are not to blame. That we were in the midst of “recovery”. That they could not have seen it coming.

Their solution will be predictable. They will state that in order to avoid such future destruction, the global framework must be “simplified”, and what better way to simplify the world than to end national sovereignty, dissolve all borders, and centralize nation states under a single economic and political ideal...
