Well, guess I can type and listen to the news at the same time.
Besides, break time's over.
So, anyway, there have been three plant explosions since the beginning of the year - the latest a propane plant in Orlando.
So if these are the only three explosions for a good long time, I'll believe they were caused by human error or just an accident.
But if there's just one more anytime soon, I'm going to think something more sinister is going on.
Weird.

Good News for America !
Private sector job creation surged in July to 200,000 as small businesses and services led the way, according to the latest report from ADP and Moody's Analytics.
Economists surveyed by Reuters expected the report from ADP and Moody's Analytics to show the private sector created 180,000 jobs in July.
What great news! If I am not elected Mayor of New York City, things are looking up and not just in my special photos! I'll have my choice between a new job as a part-time sales clerk, bellhop or bus boy! Whoopee!

"Job growth is consistently good solid across industries," said Mark Zandi, chief economist with Moody's Analytics, which compiled the jobs report for ADP.

The healthy hiring suggests that the economy is handling tax cuts that took effect in January and federal spending cuts that began in March "more gracefully than I expected," Zandi said.

He noted that the drop in manufacturing jobs probably reflected cuts by defense contractors pinched by a tighter federal budget. A weak global economy has also hurt U.S. exporters.

The ADP report is derived from payroll data and tracks private employment. It does not report government hiring.
ADP's survey has diverged at times from the U.S. Labor Department's more comprehensive monthly jobs report. The department's employment report for July will be released Friday.

It's expected to show that the economy added 183,000 jobs in July after adding 195,000 in June, according to a survey of economists by FactSet.

"The picture for the US labor market seems to have improved in the past couple of months or so," Annalisa Piazza, an economist at Newedge Strategy, said in a research note.

ZANDI CAUTIONED THAT RECENT JOB GROWTH HAS COME DISPROPORTIONATELY IN LOWER-PAYING BUSINESSES SUCH AS RETAILERS, HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS.

If I add all my part time wages together Huma, the baby and I can go on an Obama-style vacation for a whole morning. Should we start with Africa or go right to the cape?

We import more in finished goods ( mostly from China and India thanks to Clinton and George W Bush granting China and India most favored nation status) than we export in raw materials like coal, and oil ).
Naturally, other countries would never retaliate against the US by placing import tariffs and heavy fines and penalties on our goods.

What a wonderful world!

By the way, we should stop all exports of oil and coal, which kill people in other countries.

In states with large deer populations, hunting is absolutely essential to prevent automobile accidents and property damage.
On the other hand - for the opposite must also be true - arming the deer to shoot drivers would be just as effective. Maybe we could have antler cams?

1.7% is piss poor progress,'scuse my French.

It was worse the past two months.

We should have at least a 3% growth rate to even break even with the number of jobless.

Let's wait and see if it drops back down to 0.1% again before breaking out the champagne. Tay?

John Boehner was asked at a press briefing this morning about President Obama's series of speeches on the economy and the middle class--

"I'm not going to speak to what the president is doing or why he's doing it. If I had poll numbers as low as his, I'd probably be out doing the same thing, if I were him."

Bwaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa!!

Congress is a national laughingstock.

The latest NBC/WSJ poll showed Obama with a 48% favorability rating, while the same poll showed Boehner with an 18% favorability rating.

Bwaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaa!!

Obama is so stupid and so f*cked up that his policies, all of which are intended to transfer wealth from the rich to the poor, all have the opposite effect.

The last caliphate was where dumbazz? What happened to it?

What happened to Islam for the following two centuries?

I'm surprised that your stupid azz can even spell the word much less understand what it means.

Have you ordered Zealot, by Reza Aslan yet?

It'll rock your world doll!

You should be grateful that Tenzing, LCN and a couple of others continue to acknowledge your posts.

The Obama administration has never even had a budget.

The debt will increase perpetually at 8 percent every year with no plan for that to ever end.
The economy is growing at only 2 percent, and most of that is growth in government, which is an expense on the economy and the reason the debt will increase at 8 percent every year.
The government is certain to collapse under this plan.

Coincidentally, while the Republicans controlled all the purse strings of government, the public debt increased only 3.5 trillion dollars during a war. Since, the Democrats have controlled the purse strings of government and have doubled that debt to the 17 trillion it is today.

You obviously don't know how the government funds itself. Here is a link to a document that explains it in detail:

Please use this description of how the government is funded so you don't appear so ignorant when you make statements like the president borrows the money.

Ohhh give me land lots of land and the starry skies above,
Don't fence me in
Put your panties on your head and swing across the room on vines
But don't fence me in

No matter what the hour or the weather
I can make you come with just a feather

It's a shame she's only 12 but it's Texas after all

I would think you would be. I'm a Liberal. I don't want the government to control women's bodies, or gay marriage. Yes, evangelical Christian fanatics are much like Muslims
Once again, the majority of blacks and Hispanics are anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage.

Society dictates its moral standards. The abolitionists brought attention to slavery and ending it. The majority joined the cause for civil rights because it was the right thing to do.

But who looks out for the rights of human beings who are unborn?

And why must society redefine something as timeless and enduring as marriage to keep those who are having temper tantrums to get their way happy?

The government should respect the will of the people. The people know what's best for the people.

If anyone tried to dictate the will of the people, it was southern democrats who tried to dictate racism. Not the other way around.
