Wow! It's cold in New England in January! When the hell has that ever happened? I'm not concerned with that as much as the fact that in Anchorage Alaska it was 37 degrees and has been for over a week.

Technology has changed the kinds of job opportunities that now require specific skills. The education system hasn't recognized that yet or caught up.
Students aren't being taught early enough how to begin mastering these skills or pushed in the direction of technical training schools to prepare for these kinds of jobs in a different kind of workforce.
Obama should be talking about the technology gap instead. Filling the gap of job opportunities means rethinking the goals of education.
But this president's goals have nothing to do with strengthening a competitive market to fill the gap between employment and technology.
He's following directly in the footsteps of his fellow Columbia University professors - Cloward and Piven - who wanted to overload the public welfare system to precipitate a crisis that would lead to the replacement of a national "guaranteed annual income" ending poverty.
Of course, the consequences of a "guaranteed annual income" - greater lack of incentives for self-sufficiency, an entire nation feeling entitled, and a total reliance on the elite few - sounds very much like communism.
Instead of promoting solutions, Obama is more about redistribution of wealth, inciting angst over income inequality and creating an explosion of unsustainable welfare and unemployment. It sure seems to fit.
Could be wrong. Don't think so. Not this time.
You're always wrong Carol, this time too. The president has long called for more funding for community colleges where lower income students can gain technical skills needed in today's job market. He proposed an $8 billion Community College to Career Fund, with the goal of training two million workers for well-paying jobs in high-demand industries.
The rest of your post is just the same ignorant, delusional crap you've always posted.

Republican U.S. House Staffers Indicted for Felony Election Fraud as GOP Fraud Epidemic Continues

MI prosecutors:'Blatant','disgrac eful' aides 'lost moral compass', were 'completely indifferent to requirements of law'

As it turns out, not only is there no such epidemic of Democratic voter fraud, but the opposite is true. Over the past year, very high profile Republicans --- including this year's presumed standard bearer, Mitt Romney; the Sec. of State of Indiana (the first state to institute polling place Photo ID restrictions) Charlie White; one time GOP front-runner Newt Gingrich; MO's new GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate Todd Akin; and the group hired the Sacramento, CA Republican Party to collect voter registrations this year for Rep. Dan Lungren; among others (all detailed below)--- have each been revealed as having committed or participated in election fraud --- both voter registration fraud and actual voter fraud --- in state after state.

One might even call it "an epidemic". Or, if you prefer, "one of the greatest frauds in voter history, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy," as then GOP Presidential nominee John McCain described what Republicans pretended ACORN was doing back in 2008 (just before it was revealed he had previously been the group's keynote speaker where he told ACORN's members they were "what makes America special.")

So really, should we be surprised to learn that four aides to former long-shot GOP Presidential candidate and U.S. House Rep. Thaddeus McCotter --- Representative of the state's 11th and one of its most Republican districts --- were indicted yesterday on dozens of criminal felony and misdemeanor election fraud charges for having turned in over 1,500 forged and falsified signatures in a "blatant" and "disgraceful" attempt, as the state's Republican AG described it, to qualify the Congressman for this year's ballot?...

Of course you choose to overlook the fact that many of those recipeints lost their obs due to the finacial collapse that was the direct result of Republican Policy and Mis Mangement plus the number of people who are working full time at cooley level wages paid by Corporate Capitalists who are more then happy to Privatize the Profit while Socializing the operating costs to the American Taxpayer.

Teat suckling does not help the economy...
...and...
North Carolina...broke the law...

"It reduced the maximum benefit payout and the number of weeks residents can receive unemployment benefits. This reform violated
the federal law, under which states whose residents receive federally-financed unemployment compensation after exhausting their state benefits are not allowed to reduce the benefit amount. As a
consequence, on July 1, 2013 unemployed residents of North Carolina lost access to all (federally financed) unemployment benefit extensions"

and...these things occurred...

'1.A substantial decline in the number of unemployed workers and in the unemployment rate.
2.A substantial increase in the employment level and in the share of population that is employed.
3.A strong increase in the labor force (sum of employment and unemployment) and in the fraction of workers working or looking for work in the total population.'

You have a very severe problem reading and comprehending the written English language. Here is the statement again:

"You've seen what gets scraped up off the sidewalk and put on those school buses and taken to the polls every election day."

Finding the locations where the machines were programmed to steal 100% of the vote is child's play. It's virtually impossible to find the locations where the Democrats that programmed the machines to steal one in three or one in four votes. Given the normal distrubution among humans, the percentage of programmers so stupid they programmed the machines to steal 100% of the vote is most likely less than 10%, and very likely to be less than 5%.

Now, please explain to us how, out of half a million voters, not one person pressed the wrong button by mistake.

I'd watch the State of the Union Address, but I just can't watch those phoney standing ovations without feeling like I want to puke.
I'll read the transcript on the Fox news site, then compare that to the transcript on the White House website. You know, there's been a lot of times the transcripts posted on the White House website are different than the transcripts posted everywhere else on the internet.
