Who do I call to get on the topix payroll? This seems like work to me.

Because hubby had to work late today, my "work day" seemed longer.

But I need a break. Later.

They will become traitors to their own country because they think it will sink this President. Snowden is a thief and a criminal and every American should be behind the President and the United States.

When Bush began his first term in January 2001, total nonfarm employment was 132.47 million. When his second term began four years later, it was 132.45 million, or effectively zero job growth.
Obama's first term isn't technically over yet, but so far, employment has risen from 133.56 million in January 2009 to 134.02 million in the latest report, for December 2012. That's a net gain of about 460,000 or 0.3 percent. As paltry as that is, it beats Bush's first-term performance.

what surprises me is that you folks who voted for the Republican non-job creators in Congress even try to go after Obama about jobs.
How stupid. Zero job growth, Zero job loss. I didn't know anyone that wasn't working during the Bush first term. But I know hundreds that still aren't working because of O'bama.

The economic crisis began in the Clinton era. It didn't reach fruitition until the end of the Bush era.
Don't blame Bush if the economy collapsed at the end of his watch when Clinton created the first cracks in the foundation.

Michael Hastings OBVIOUSLY Murdered by Bomb on Gas Tank

"For all 3 of those normal reasons, which account for virtually all car fires in modern cars, the fire would have started in the engine compartment, progressed slowly, and scorched the hell out of the paint before ever reaching the gas tank. That clean paint is the be all tell all, Michael Hastings was murdered, and the rest is detail."

UPDATE: Accident scenes switched. They swapped cars and locations to hide explosive damage, PROOF IS BELOW:

The Bush tax cuts cost us trillions in revenue and led to the worst downturn since the Depression. Only an idiot would deny those FACTS. Failure defines the Bush administration.
"The failure of Republicans to deliver on their promise that tax cuts would be mostly self-financing is a large factor in the deterioration in our long-run fiscal outlook, and it is putting considerable pressure on programs such as Social Security. In fact, the Bush tax cuts can be thought of as a loan from the Social Security Trust Fund that was supposed to be paid back with the revenues from higher economic growth, a loan that is presently in default."
"The payoffs from tax cuts that were promised during the Bush years have not been realized, and the failed promises about growth and revenue have damaged the health, education, and retirement programs the working class depends upon in our increasingly globalized economy."

<quoted text>O'bama now has the worst track record. Your article is from 2009--O'bama wishes he could have GW Bush's low unemployment rates. But O'bama is too stupid--and not only that-he doesn't care.
Obama sure is glad that he doesn't have the same huge spending deficits as Reagan and Bush43-- in both of those republican administrations the national debt quadrupled and multiplied upwards by 8-times what the budget deficit had been. "Lenders talk about a &#65533;debtor&#65533; s death spiral.&#65533; It occurs when borrowers get so far in over their heads they begin borrowing money just to cover the interest payments on past borrowings. The borrowers have to do this to keep the lending flowing but they can no longer plausibly pay down the principal. As new debt compounds on old, bankruptcy becomes imminent. Further lending is foolhardy. Foreclosure is only a matter of time.

The U.S. is starting to look like it is entering just such a death spiral. It is foretold not simply by the large and growing deficits, nor by the fact that their carrying costs will rise quickly as interest rates rise. Rather, it is the fact that these trends are becoming irreversible, a structural part of the U.S. economy.

When the ultimate collapse will occur, whether it comes with a bang or a whimper, how it will be triggered, and how severe it will be are as yet unknown. But as Herbert Stein, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Richard Nixon was fond of saying, &#65533;Things that can&#65533;t go on forever, don&#65533;t.&#65533;

The first signs of impending trouble are the exploding budget deficits themselves. They began, of course, under the parlous economic stewardship of Ronald Reagan. Reagan cut the marginal tax rate on the wealthiest of Americans from 70% to 38%. He promised it would spur an orgy of investment and rocket the economy to new levels of production and prosperity. Instead, his &#65533;supply side economics&#65533; did the exact opposite. It produced the deepest recession since the Great Depression. "
