As you well know, any organization as dysfunctional as the US Government would be out of business in no time.
China smiles as America argues with itself. Their controlled economy has outperformed ours for over a decade, with American Corporation's generous help to China. And the Corporations don't pay American taxes on their Chinese profits!! Only to China!!
So, over the years they've exported millions of American jobs to cheap labor nations. With the blessings of Dems and Repubs.
Then they blame Americans for being lazy and looking for Gov't help because they can't live on the slave wages so common today.
And you appear to have bought into this nonsense.
Who's got it better than us?? Many nations, you really need to travel more. Try the northern tier of Europe, to start.

Who's got it better than us is the niner motto. Has nothing to do with travels.

Realtime - if it's been posted on here enough times it must be true.
No wait__tell us again how the construction industry works, it's even more bizarre than your normal crap.

Sequester is in effect, the sun is shining, the weather is gorgeous, nobody committing suicide, all is well.

Obama lied about US Capitol janitors getting furloughed.

So, now he threatens Rainstorm Sandy victims.

Uncle Poodle Patrick fails to note that Obama's approval is dropping.

Obama Democrats see more taxes as the answer to everything, while Republicans stand for spending restraint.

Let's take that to the voters in 2014, minus social issues, and let the voters decide.

Do you realize how stoopid you come off as? The fact remains that budgets president nobama has submitted were voted on and they were so outlandish they could not muster a single vote. Even democrats realized they were crap.

Did or dd not Obama submit a budget every year he was supposed to. The 2014 is due out this month.

It is a rather simple question that you can't seem to answer.

So did he or didn't he?

Given that Fiat owns 60% of Chrysler and the UAW 40%, one would assume that the profit (or loss) split is along those lines.

The Chairman and CEO of Fiat holds similar titles at Chrysler.

but you loony leftwingers really don't care about jobs as long as there are enough taxpayers to fleece.
Temporary jobs. At what risk?

Seems to be that Texan s were rather upset when they started building the southern route. Not that much US steel & not that much US labor.

Quit blaming Obama for the failures of Congress.

Obama submitted a budget.

What's interesting is that the Keystone XL route and purpose have already been discussed on this and various other forums as well as reasonable estimates of how many US jobs, both temporary and permanent, will be created.
You must have missed those discussions eh?
Or more likely you, like Carol, are simply out to amuse yourself.
Keystone gives Obama the chance to choose between his labor union supporters and the environmental whackos.

Labor unions will take hind tit once again. They are useless to the Democrats except as voters. Suckers.

It's not sudden. The size of the cuts has been known for more than a year and planning should have been done.

The US has just pledged $60 million to the Syrian opposition in what is being called non lethal aide. I think that's a bullshyte deal personally and only designed to speed "some/any conclusion" to the Assad horror show.
IMO that craziness needs to play itself out without US involvement beyond assisting with the refugees.
How many teacher's jobs could be saved by the $60 million that we are pissing away in the Syrian civil war?

Small-government advocates often claim that high taxes hold the economy back. But a new report finds that states without a personal income tax have experienced slower economic growth than states with high income tax rates.

The report, from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, found that between 2002 and 2011, the economies of the nine U.S. states without a personal income tax grew 37 percent less quickly per capita than states with high income taxes.

Yes, Obama sure as hell did, and the budget was so silly that even the Democrats didn't want to vote for it.

While Obama is still blaming Republicans for everything that has ever gone wrong in his administration - somehow forgetting Democrats had control of Congress the last two years of the Bush administration, the first two years of the Obama administration, and who resisted any effort to rein in Fannie and Freddie for years leading up to the crisis - the Republicans washed their hands of the mess insisting the bills they passed in the last Congress to avert the cuts were passed with little to no Democratic support and were never taken up by the Senate.
So let's get this straight:
It was Republicans who tried to reign in Fannie and Freddie and Democrats who fought it every step of the way...It was Democrats who controlled Congress two years leading up to the crisis and two years after the crisis...And it was Republicans who passed bills in the House to avert the cuts with no support by the Democrats or never even taken up by the Senate.
How is anyone not getting this?
How is anyone not getting this?

They DON"T WANT TO.

The rest of us accept reality as it spills out from the gate.
