Sorry, but your diversionary attempts will not succeed.

The original complaint you put forth was about Jackson stealing 3/4 of a million in campaign contributions.

My rebuttal is Bush launched an unnecessary war which cost the taxpayers far more, got 4,000 killed, and with arms manufacturers putting some of the ill-gotten gains back into GOP campaign coffers.

A far worse crime.

Some of the Obama bail-outs I agree went to bogus projects.

But to the plus side, the banks were recapitalized, and major businesses like AIG and General Motors kept afloat.

In response, the stock market stabilized, with the DOW at 8600. It has recovered to a point over 13000.

Unemployment, at 7.8% under Bush and climbing finally stabilized at 10% and has come back down to 8%.

The bail-out helped provide unemployment for millions of Americans who couldn't find work.

It also kept numerous state and local governments solvent.

To say the bail-outs achieved nothing is a ludicrous argument.

Work-study jobs

Around 6,250 fewer low income students in Florida would receive aid to help them finance the costs of college and around 1,700 fewer students will get work-study jobs that help them pay for college

Nutrition assistance for seniors

Florida would lose approximately $3.8 million in funds that provide meals for seniors.

Teachers and schools

Florida will lose approximately $54.5 million in funding for primary and secondary education, putting around 750 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition about 95,000 fewer students would be served and approximately 130 fewer schools would receive funding. In addition, Florida will lose approximately $31.1 million in funds for about 380 teachers, aides, and staff who help children with disabilities

Hello? Is the party to whom I'm not fantasizing? You must be on a party-line, because I never mentioned any complaint about Jackson stealing anything (although he did). Now please hang up and dial another party. And while you're at it, hustle over to the Obama residence and see what they did with all that Stimulus money.

There was good news and bad news for Fox News in the February cable news ratings.

The good news? Fox News once again had the top 13 programs — much better than January, where it failed to sweep the top 10 for the first time in years and had its lowest ratings in the all-important A25-54 demo since 2001. "Special Report" also celebrated 50 months as the top-rated show in its hour.

The bad news? Shep Smith, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity all saw huge drops in the demo from the same point in 2012. Hannity fell a staggering 35 percent from 2012, and O'Reilly fell 26 percent. It was the two mens' worst performance in the demo since 2006 and 2008, respectively. True, 2012 was an election year — but even though MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews also saw their ratings decrease, their ratings fell by much smaller percentages.

Indiana Senate Calling For A 2nd U.S. Constitutional Convention
Indiana is halfway to becoming the first state to call for a second U.S. constitutional convention. The Senate voted Monday 32-18 in favor of a convention to consider amendments to rein in the federal government.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) contends the government has used its taxing power and its authority over interstate commerce to expand federal power over the states far beyond what the founders envisioned, and argues that shift won’t be solved by sending different representatives to Washington. He says a Constitutional amendment is the only remedy left.

You realize what it takes to pass a Constitutional Amendment, right?
