From what I read, he was read his rights. The judge read them to him when he was at the hospital and unsealed the charges against him.

Or for you...apparently.

"ONE OF the most ..." is not the same as "THE most..." You see you missed the qualifying words "one" and "of" there. Easy to do. Especially when it's deliberate.

Give it a rest, Dog.

The stock market is at an absolute all time high.
The unemployment numbers have steadily fallen since January 2008.
The tax on internet sales is state, not Federal, sales tax and the current controversy is how the states can collect it.

If he is spending, how do you explain the Sequester? And, given some of teh publicized effect of teh Sequester, perhap the spending is needed to run the country, fly the planes, open the national parks, process the tax returns, etc.

My crystal ball does not permit me to say whether Obamacare will put small businesses out,although on a pure anecdotal basis, I know small business owners who are cutting hours to stay under a threshold.

If you are going to rant ( and knowing you, you will) at least spend some time and find a solid factual base to rant from
You currently have some time on your hands. Do some homework then come back and grouch.

Running out of unemployment benefits does not mean you got a job, it just means that you are now no longer counted as unemployed.

Statistics can put a positive spin on anything.

Just asking Wikipedia -- you don't have to go to Europe:
"The term was originally used to refer to feelings of being "carefree", "happy", or "bright and showy". The term's use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the 20th century.[1] In modern English, "gay" has come to be used as an adjective, and as a noun, referring to the people, especially to males, and the practices and cultures associated with homosexuality."

I do not have to do homework to realize the current dire situation of our economy. But as long as 8% unemployment is the new norm, we can fool ourselves into thinking the economy is just rocking along. Pull your heads out of your @zzes people.

Correct. Just like the people who have given up trying to find work and instead had to take early retirement aren't counted either. The TRUE unemployment numbers are at around 13%. But if these people actually accepted the truth, their heads might just explode. Much better to squeeze their eyes shut with their fingers in their ears and believe everything is just fine. Sure beats having to deal with reality.

That is an interesting an plausible number. What's the source?

Assuming it is a reliable source, it would be difficult to compare that elevated percentage against earlier reports unless you knew they were reporting the same thing, Apples to apples and all that.

Would YOU give it a rest and stop trying to justify the crappy unemployment numbers just because the truth is a bit "unsettling?"

Start by comparing how many jobs were created vs the # of people who fell off the unemployment roster, then add the difference back into the new unemployment #. I am guessing you will see that unemployment is actually growing, not shrinking.

Nice try, honey, but I just proved you wrong. You can't outsmart a member of the GOP, stop trying or you're just gonna embarrass yourself.
