They are only talking about the stock market, stupid old flock. Get a clue, moron.
"The deficit is now only 4% of the GDP, down from over 10% at the end of Bush’s administration – and projections are for it to be only 2% by 2015 (before Obama leaves office.)"

Not about the stock market. This is about increasing revenues from growing businesses & a growing economy

<quoted text> There is proof now that Apple is a billionaire tax evader and as Mitt Romney put it, "MOOCHER"!

The US has the highest corporate tax rates in the world.

Change the US Tax Code to allow repatriation of foreign profits at reasonable rates.

Despite Rubio’s wooing, radio hosts protest immigration reform bill

Conservative radio talk show hosts have signed a letter opposing the sweeping immigration reform bill in the Senate, bucking tea party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio's attempts to win their support for the bill, which would combine enhanced border security with a legalization program for the nation's unauthorized immigrants. Rubio, a member of the "gang of eight" senators who drafted the bill, has become the most prominent conservative spokesman for its passage.

Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, who had Rubio on her show twice in the past few months to let him make his pitch for the bill, signed onto the open letter that says the "unsalvageable" measure "would do more harm than good." The statement, signed by more than 100 conservative groups and leaders, argues that the bill is laden with earmarks and "rewards" lawbreakers by allowing most of the country's 11 million undocumented immigrants to legalize if they pass a background check and pay fines.

Some influential conservatives have argued that the party needs to embrace reform in order to combat its declining support among Hispanic voters and to fix a broken system, even though the bill is also high on President Barack Obama's agenda.

Well I guess Rubio won't be Hillary's opponent in the next election.

What you call an earthquake in New Jersey is a tiny tremor, the likes of which California experiences virtually every day.
Big deal.
It figures there would be 1 dumass to comment,not even knowing what the topic was about. I never said it was a big deal of the earthquake alone. It was all of natures occurrences that doesn't naturally happen in Jersey to happen in a years time is just proof it's not a part of natures natural occurrences. We rarely get hurricanes, & we never get earthquakes or tornados so the fact that all 3 plus a destructive unnamed storm that tore South Jersey to sheds is proof that these occurrences are far from nature taking it's course!

True. It has always been said history cannot be written until all those involved are gone.
A new fresh look is being taken of FDR's policies, EOs and even his economics.
A book called 'FDR Follies' outlines how his policies painfully extend the Depression for years.
I will have to get it which I have seen it before but your right his policies extended the Depression and why FDR was considered acting & becoming like a conservative because FDR refused to change policy and FDR was the one that redefined the what it meant to be a liberal besides the Conservatives prior to FDR where actually True Liberals(what today is known as the Classical Sense) and rejected change and everything that FDR stood for.

Let us be blunt here. This is a message board and I rather read a thoughtful response from a Progressive who may have typos, grammar errors, misused words and spelling errors as that post exhibits some intelligence. Yours do not.

Stop interrupting the conversation with this childishness.

A sadist is always at the same time a masochist."

New York and New Jersey were hit by more hurricanes in the 1950s and 1960s than in recent years

Any immigration bill MUST place first emphasis on sealing the border and preventing further illegal immigration. After that has been accomplished, and only then, can we address disposition of existing illegal aliens.
lol! What part of 'your' bill has anything to do with immigration son?
