Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Twenty-two million jobs were created during Clinton’s two terms but only 3 million during Bush’s.

We wanted to look at those numbers ourselves, so we turned to the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, or BLS. Getting guidance on the data from BLS and using Excel spreadsheets, we discovered not only that Brown and the Democrats have been wrong, but also why.

It was a matter of timing.

BLS had only preliminary data on Bush’s final performance at the close of his second term, when the Wall Street Journal was doing its story. BLS subsequently updated the data. It turned out that things were way worse than the preliminary numbers showed.

We shared this assessment with the Journal reporter, who agreed. It’s not a matter of whose numbers were better. It’s a matter of what was known and when.

You, too, can do the math. The jobs numbers are based on a monthly survey of employers for the 12th of each month, but the initial reports are revised as more employers complete their survey over the following couple of months. A fuller census of employment and wages is conducted quarterly and is considered more accurate, so BLS eventually adjusts the monthly numbers to reflect that accuracy. Here are the latest numbers:

Now for Bush, who succeeded Clinton in the White House. As already noted, the nation had 132.469 million jobs as he was taking office.

Number of jobs on Jan. 12, 2009, a week before Bush left office: 133.549 million.
Net gain under Bush: 1.08 million jobs.

Zimmerman had a years long history of calling law enforcement over matters large and small and had the nen # locked into his cell phone.
Not knowing your system, Galt would assume that a "non-emergency operator" would be a step down from 9-1-1 and would not be a police officer.

Did the "non-emergency operator" identify himself/herself as a police officer?

It's rumored many southern bible thumpers wouldn't vote for him and stayed home. Something has to explain the inexpicable re election of the clown and failure Obama.
Galt believes that this is highly possible, although whether it would have made a difference in the outcome is debatable.

Note that the Bible-thumpers exist in large numbers outside the South, in places like Ohio.

Galt maintains that most Bible-thumpers are lower-middle-class whites, economic Democrats except for the abortion issue. They register Republican for appearances, screw up our primaries, then they vote Democrat or stay home.

Screw them.

Do you dislike red lights and stop sign too?
Galt obeys traffic laws, but red light cameras are often rigged to trap people by having extremely short yellow lights. Motorists enter the intersection on green and the light is red before they exit. These cameras are a money-making scheme, pure and simple. Not to mention increasing the number of rear-end collisions.

Many communities in Southern California are eliminating the red light cameras, including San Diego.

What do you think is meant by the term "personal responsibility"?

The nanny-state is not acceptable.
Automobiles, and particularly motorcycles, would be the first to go.

Nanny-staters like Obama and Bloomerberg would probably like to limit top speed of automobiles to 30 mph.

The Socialist Democrats consider "personal responsibility" to be code language for racism.

MSNBC, eh?

You may as well post links to Jesse Jackson, Dood.

The Little Angel Trayvon has been reported to have had many run-ins with authority. Gold Toothed Punkass trash. But the law protects his school records from public view(sounds familiar, doesn't it? Like maybe the Boy Messiah?)

Zimmerman's Defense Team had to fight by appeal for those records because of the oozing black racism in the case that leads back all the way up to the Eric Racist Holder and the White House.

Take your MSNBC trash out to the curb, Dood.

One of the biggest complaints of the Tea Party faithful and the right in general is that America is becoming a socialist democracy, a “nanny state” that will “take care of us” whether we want it to or not. This is amazing hypocrisy on the part of the Tea Party, considering that some surveys place as many as 44% of Tea Party members on Medicare. That’s kind of how things work when the majority of your membership is over 55. It should be noted that all Medicare cuts as proposed by the Tea Party take place only for those under 55. Yes, lets make some sacrifices – Oh wait, lets have someone else make sacrifices so we don’t have to. And sure enough, that’s what the Ryan budget proposes to do with Medicare. No changes for anyone over 55, but anyone under 55 gets to have vouchers to help pay for private insurance. Once again, redistributing wealth from the poor to the wealthy by means of taxes that are given to major corporate interests. Now why didn’t I think of that?

This attitude is best expressed by a quote I saw on a Tea Party protest sign during the 2010 election:“Keep your filthy government hands off my Medicare.”

I didn't say they should be banned, I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of people like Carol who continually whine about personal responsibility and the high costs of healthcare, diabetes cost $70 billion a year
I think the Bloomberg attempt to ban them is silly. I also think the war on drugs is ridiculous and pot should be legalized. I'm am against the stop and frisk practices by police and roadside police check points, and no knock warrants, and red light cameras, and police entrapment policies.
