Not much going on in the middle middle East so far today, someone bombed a Sunni mosque in Iraq killing 9, and there's some scuttlebutt about setting up a war crimes court in Damascus for trials of politicians and soldiers.

Yeah, right, Realtime. There's a direct correlation between baby boomers retiring and a stark rise in part-time jobs with full-time employment declining.

Only you would make that connection. Please tell me how one has to do with the other.

A perfect piece of legislation - especially one of this magnitude - is written by both parties, debated, amended and passed on party lines with the majority of the people behind it.
This was a Democratic smorgasbord of having complete power to hastily craft a poorly thought out/thrown together piece of legislation that was neither debated or amended with any Republican input and was signed behind closed doors in the middle of the night and passed on a strictly partisan vote.
You have got to be kidding me if you think anyone - including conservatives - would have been happy with a major piece of legislation such as this written and passed by a strictly Republican vote of which the majority were against and shoved down liberals' throats.
Are you seriously saying you would?

Of course you did. The democrats have only been winning by cheating. Look no further than Chicago.

Various explanations from credible sources have been linked here__you skipped or ignored them.

My post was accurate " the chief factor in the shrinking labor force participation rate is that baby boomers are retiring en masse."

I agree. In 2009 McCain was willing to shut down the military to get rid of O'bamacare--now what? did they find some dirt on him through all the NSA snooping. Makes no sense.

um, lets see. They would not have paid a tax for not purchasing something before the "affordable" care act. So, yes they would have been better off.

O'bama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer used three vivid analogies to attack House Republicans' laundry list of demands for raising the debt ceiling, comparing Republicans to arsonists, hostage-takers and suicide bombers.
"What we're not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest," Pfeiffer said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper Thursday afternoon. "We're not going to do that."

"Does the WH believe that 61% of Americans support terrorism? The Bloomberg poll linked above shows 61% of Americans supporting Republicans who want spending cuts in exchange for a debt-ceiling raise,“even if it risks default.” Obama and his team had better pay attention to some of the other numbers in this poll, especially on approval ratings:

Overall – 45/49
Economy – 38/56
Foreign policy/US reputation – 43/51
Budget deficit – 29/61
Health care – 39/54
Working with House GOP – 39/46
Syria – 31/53
In fact, Obama is underwater in every measure, and well outside the margin of error except on overall approval. The “refusal to negotiate” stance is getting especially old, with less than 40% supporting it. Republicans aren’t looking like terrorists as much as Obama is looking like a petulant child — and this PR campaign is further proof of it."

So called democrats trying to make the American people a nation of criminals. This is how liberalism works.

Recovery? Are we talking shovel ready jobs?
Obama has input into the O-conomy $ 7 Trillion through deficit spending and the Fed is complicit in printing almost $ 4 Trillion.
When will Dumbocrats realize randomly throwing money into an economy is not the answer? I believe they will never learn since they need that money to make promises to stay in power and buy votes.
A Republican representative (a black Republican representative and former business owner) was on Greta last night and said what everyone knows but no one is saying...that the government HAS to be run like a business. Instead, it waits until the last minute to figure out its budget and then usually ends up kicking the can down the road a few more months and no one is talking about which priorities are absolutely necessary and where what money needs to be spent.

He totally focused on the government's mismanagement of money and spending and will vote to defund Obamacare as well.

Why is it black Republicans seem to get it and have knowledge of macroeconomics - and not black Democrats?

Don't forget corruption. Look at Detroit as well as Chicago. Every blue state in the country has raised taxes and are struggling while red states have lowered them and faring well or doing just fine.

You're not giving enough credit to and grossly underestimating many other conservative posters on here and their contributions.

They are right on the money every single time. We're all trying as hard as we can to pop that little bubble of denial of yours.
