DHS wastes billions of Our money in the so-called fight against terrorism
June 1, 2013
Audits carried out by the DHS Inspector General reveal ''serious shortcomings'' about the way grants have been spent. The report questions how many of the acquisitions made by towns and cities have contributed in any way to combating the threat of terrorism.
Hard pressed taxpayers who are suffering from wage cuts, job losses and cuts in Federal programs are entitled to ask tough questions of the Department of Homeland Security. Senator Coburn's report points out very forcefully that there have been few accountability measures in the UASI program. He notes that,''there is almost no way to ensure taxpayers are getting value for their money, and more importantly, whether they are safer.''

"I tell you, if Tom Coburn just stuck to shutting down the most egregious Homeland Security fearmongering boondoggle abuses rather than shutting down government itself, I might grow to love the man.

His latest effort (for which some of his staffers appear to have staged a very fun photo shoot) takes on the stupid things localities bought under the $7.1 billion Urban Area Security Initiative, which was originally intended to help likely terrorist targets (like NYC) prepare against an attack, but which turned into a big boondoggle for towns unlikely to be targeted."

Dow surpasses 15,000 milestone
S&P 500 enters bull-market territory, up 20% since November lows
Published: 05/07/2013 at 1:28 PM

(CNBC) Stocks held gains Tuesday, with the S&P 500 extending its recent rally to a fresh high and the Dow surpassing the 15,000 milestone, boosted by better-than-expected economic data from Germany and a gain in Japan.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed above 15,000 to hit an all-time intraday high of 15,013.43. Caterpillar and JPMorgan led the blue-chip gainers. The index first broke above the milestone on Friday, but has yet to close above the level.

OECD Forecasts Global Economy to Recover Next Year: Economy
By Mark Deen - May 29, 2013 3:41 AM PT

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development forecasts global economic growth will accelerate in 2014 with both the U.S. and Japan continuing to outpace the euro area.

“The global economy is moving forward and it is doing so at multiple speeds,” OECD Chief Economist Pier Carlo Padoan said today in the Paris-based organization’s semi-annual Economic Outlook. Differing monetary and fiscal choices across the major developed economies are driving regional divergence with “each path carrying its own mix of risks,” he said.

Hiring picks up as housing market recovers
The Labor Department says the economy generated 236,000 net jobs in February, much more than analysts had expected.
March 08, 2013|By Don Lee, Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON — The pace of job growth has begun gathering steam as the last missing piece in the recovery — the housing market — comes back to life nationwide and employers start to look past government budget battles and add to their thinned ranks.

The Labor Department said the economy generated 236,000 net jobs in February, much more than analysts had expected.

Home prices up 10 percent: How strong is this year’s US housing market?
Sales volume is rising, and the inventory of homes in foreclosure is down almost 25 percent from a year ago. Here’s some more context to put the recent trends in home prices in perspective.

News of the first double-digit annual home price gain since 2006 raises a question: Just how blazing hot is the housing market?

Clearly a recovery has gathered some steam.

Home prices have been rising across all 20 US cities that are tracked by Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller indexes, and the widely watched Case-Shiller nationwide index shows home prices up 10.2 percent over the past four quarters.

Yes, you're right, Nixon appointee, very ill, William Rehnquist was Chief Justice."Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor suggested in a weekend interview that the high court should have stayed out of the 2000 election." ..."It’s not the first time O’Connor has expressed doubt about the 5-4 decision. In a 2010 interview, she said she didn’t know if it was right. But, she added, she didn’t worry about it because several recounts found that Bush would have won the state regardless.(Those recounts — the one requested by Al Gore and the one ordered by the state Supreme Court — were limited. Had Gore been able to trigger a statewide recount the result likely would have been different, a 2001 Post analysis found.) She has also linked declining public perception of the Supreme Court to that decision." Check this out: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-poli...

you know I've been wondering the same thing.. Seeing how most liberal states like California, NY, Illinois pay more taxes into the Federal gov't than they get back, while most republican states actually get more in Federal dollars than they pay into the Federal gov't

why should we be supporting republican welfare mooching states

States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:
1. New Mexico:$2.63

The middle class has LOST income during this administration and the unemployment rate is still far too high, especially for the years it has gone on. The fact is the only people that are doing well is the rich, and they are getting much richer. Obama is good for the rich, he sucks for the middle class....you know....his main priority! The average person is NOT in the stock market and most middle class American's have had to learn to get by with lower incomes and higher gas and grocery prices and higher insurance premium. Obama is causing another housing bubble just like the last and a student loan bubble on top of that and for some reason he is either too stupid to see it or just doesn't care as long as the numbers look good right now. That of course is his desperation to show ANY improvement under his leadership, of course it is nothing but a delusion. Obama has done NOTHING for the middle class but destruction.

Then why were all you righties on here yesterday so vigorously defending George W. Bush's incompetence? The statement by itself is in opposition. You have a title meaning you all think alike & argue the same nonsense. When gay marriage was the topic, I was opposed to the left & I remember you say," the lefts on here were wrong for attacking me for my view of the situation." You turned around & did the same thing on countless other topics. That's because I have no political affiliation to 1 group or the other & you do, so when I'm in opposition to your beliefs, you'll attack me as only a rightie could, same for the left!
