Often. Why is 4000 words or less a problem for you? Dont like reading? Why use the internet then?

These crazies are refusing to reach agreement on the Budget, and playing into the Democrats ' hands again. If they don't, the cuts automatically go into effect, the Country goes into recession, the Republicans get the blame, and lose the White House again in 2016. Wake up people!
Nailed it!

Will someone in the GOP please stand up and lead!!

Jobless claims increased to 439,000 last week. I am thrilled that there is finally something Bush wasn't blamed for in the last 4 years, Now it is Sandy's fault.

4000 words is not a problem if it's justified. I'm just curious as to why you need to be so verbose.

Sorry 4k chars. It was and is 5am.

Many reasons. Most important of which would be that I write much as I would speak or think.

I also am a heavy reader, I write for fun, I study literature and linguistics. Complex texts on the study of the mind, even poetry and prose. Ive worked in communications and adult education. I have a sizable vocabulary and to neglect it would be wasteful, Just to cite a few.

Im not trying to be insulting when I say this, however you have in many ways missed what I have said to the point of being oblivious to it and even crafting your own unrelated and out of context meanings. How is it appropriate to behave as if you can determine what is and is not a justifiable use of language and vocabulary if more often than not you do not even know what all you dont know?

Does an EMT determine what techniques to use or what drugs to push to a paramedic? So how is it your place to try and pass judgement against my linguistic proficiency?

Like I said before... The internet is predominantly made out of text right down to its source codes. If reading is so difficult, and so much of a chore for you that you complain repeatedly when presented with someone adept at using words and in abundance, you are in the wrong place. Honestly I should not have to trim my words or spell things out in crayon. Im sorry, but its your problem, not mine, so please, I ask you, bring yourself up to my level, do not try to force me down to yours because I simply wont do it.

If I want to take the time and write a lot of words, its my time to waste but if you dont like that and dont want to read it, then dont. Its your problem, not mine.

As long as they remain the Party of no, discrimination, hate, greed, and apathy, the democrats will surely oblige them and trounce them again in 2016. They are in dire need of new leadership.

Oh, I can be wordy too. I just find doing so on troll-riddled site like topix to be an unfruitful and thankless pursuit.

Who's the more clueless?
Recent headlines --
October -- Jobless claims unexpectantly lower!
(no, I saw that one coming)
Today - Surprise! Jobless claims rise!
(again, I saw this coming)
We have a thread with current layoffs, but add to that Panasonic, Xerox, Texas Instruments, Mining, Manufacturing, Proctor & Gamble, Wake Forest Medical Center (over 900)Smithfield Foods Packing Plant....
Want to know the states with the biggest loss this week? The media will tie the jump to Sandy but the biggest jumps were:
Pennsylvania and Ohio LOL
"Pennsylvania and Ohio reported big jumps in initial jobless claims for the week of Nov. 3. There was an increase of 7,766 claims in Pennsylvania attributed to layoffs in the construction, transportation and manufacturing sectors. And Ohio reported an increase of 6,450 initial jobless claims from layoffs in the automobile and manufacturing industries."
Look at the chart -- October, down - November, shot straight up....

An analyst on CNBC this morning talked about why the stock market has risen the last 4 years & it wasn't because of obama - it was Bernanke and Bernanke is now out of options -- look out for the next 4 years.

I wonder the same thing about MSNBC and CNN...can they not be held liable for withholding facts from news stories in an attempt to skew the truth? You are right about one thing....people are getting right fir a civil war in America. We are tired of some not contributing and getting free sh*t. I don't begrudge anyone getting food when they are down and out...but free everything else is unneeded. Poor people could live with relatives, wear clothes from goodwill and salvation army thrift stores like we did as kids and sometimes still do. Our Christmas and birthday presents came from those stores also. Why are they better than me? If they want better they can work.
