This happens every year. Retailers and restaurants hire temporary help for the holiday rush and once Christmas is over and the workers are no longer needed the companies let them go to avoid having to pay them benefits. From truck drivers to cashiers at Toys R Us it's just seasonal work.

The holiday season is a big cash cow. How many people are giving out candy for Halloween? How many people will have turkey for Thanksgiving? Christmas is the best. Who is sending Christmas cards, buying presents, putting up lights that spike the electric bill etc. Of these people how many will use credit cards and pay the banks an additional 19% a month on their purchases? It's interesting how gas prices mysteriously go up this time of year raising prices on everything. Don't forget to go buy your Christmas tree thats been trucked in from Canada.

Fathom this hyprocrisy of a Goverment that requires
every citizen to prove they are insured...But not every one must prove they are a citizen.
And now any of those who refuse or are unabale to provide they are citizens. Will recieve free insurance.
Paid for by those who are buying insurance.
Because they are citizens.
#2551 Oct 6, 2012
Very true. You are considered no longer part of the workforce and the unemployment rate actually drops.
#2552 Oct 6, 2012
And how many of those Christmas gifts will be from China.

Just saying you cant thank any sitting President for the spike in employment this time of year. It's all the handy work of that jolly old fellow from the North pole. With a little help from advertisers, electronic and toy companies.
Two months ago you could go to the mall and the only thing you had to worry about was being hit by a rogue tumbleweed blowing through the parking lot. A month from now you will be lucky to find a parking spot.

The numbers and the method to calculate them are mind boggling and I question what they really mean.
We keep hearing that the president lost the debate, well he did. The country is still in very bad shape, there are no real good jobs as they have been outsourced overseas, so how can you have America back to work as we once knew it. The Middle East is a hot bed ready to explode and we have all these other little countries struggling to survive. However, with all the negatives going on around the U.S. and the World we see our current leader forging forward, keeping a steady pace according to the pre-plan(s) laid out and keeping and maintaining major disruptions at bay while trying to work the issues and reach compromise on the betterment for life in the U.S. within our own government and leaders from each of our 50 States.
The blame to put our countrys troubles on the past Administration is over, we all know where they came from so lets leave it there. Its time to continue to correct them which is being done as we speak.
We have a very sick America and we have someone in charge of healing it at present and we all know that the ills the country cannot be healed by take 2 aspirins and call me in the morning. The current leadership is making headway, not at the pace wed all like, but its headway, so why would we want to stop the progress thats being made and turn the countrys ills over to someone who does not have any plans to remedy and/or cure them? We cannot elect someone who says I have a plan, just elect me then Ill show you what it is! Ill tell you what it is, its a rehash of what we saw with the last Administration running the show. So it comes down to; if you want to go back to the way it was Vote in the debate winner or if you want to move ahead stick with our current leadership and take the debates at just what they are just debates without real action results.
So with ALL this, what are the numbers telling us??

Mary, I know the last post is almost ah half a page, but as they used to say; "Try it, you'll like it".

FLORIDA RETIREE: I have to strongly disagree with your thoughts on the current president's leadership (this is America and I do have a right to pleasantly disagree, right ?)....
As I watched the debate, I couldn't believe BHO just standing there, and at times, actually nodding in agreement with what Romney was saying !!! Wow ... His body language just showed he is not a leader, he is not strong - How dare BHO apologize for actions of our great country to another country (look it up, he did this)...Look at the deficit - in the trillions (with a Capital T)and growing every week !!!!.... Our defenseless ambassador in Lybia - brutally murdered - along with three other people. Did he not learn anything from 9/11/01 !!!! This happened on the 11th anniversary of the attack on the USA ... He is cutting the defense budget ... I am so proud of each and every man and woman in our military (remember it's all volunteer now)...He's out golfing (or wherever and not attending our national security meetings....
And don't get me started on his wifey ... Gosh she is enjoying her vacations and luxury travels -- all on OUR dime .... She and He sent their daughter, Malia, to Mexico on her 13th b/day - with 13 of her best friends !!! Any idea how much that cost us taxpayers -- luxury accommodations, the best of everything, secret service personnel to protect them everywhere....This is no example to be setting to our citizens who are struggling to put food on the table, pay the rent, medical bills, etc ... and so many on unemployment....Food stamp use has ??? doubled during this administration....
For two years he blamed Bush for this and that and for the last two years, he's been out campaigning (or traveling, on being on The View (he does LOVE that TV exposure)....
He listened to Rev. Wright for 20 years ... yes 20 years .... spew hate towards whites, hate towards our beloved United States .... Why ?? If he didn't agree with this Reverend, then find another Christian church to belong to. He must have agreed with the Reverend, right ???
Go see the documentary: The Year 2016 .... All facts, nothing hyped up....It is truly frightening what this man believes in and wants for us....
One can only imagine what he will do if elected for the next four years ....He then becomes a lame duck president and could care less what anyone thinks - he can't run again so what does it matter...He will just use Executive Order and do as he pleases....
I don't need Obama care for my health issues either. If it is so great, why isn't Congress included in this plan - they are exempt you know...They don't want it - they KNOW what is in it.... I'm doing just fine with my own insurance - I like to choose who is my physician and my hospital for my care.
Furthermore, I don't need Mochelle telling my children what to eat thank you very much !!! This family does fine on its own....
#2558 Oct 6, 2012
I had no wish to offend.
You do realize you're the one who said you didn't care how much it cost you to find the guy who was taunting you about your daughter's down syndrome and making remarks about Retiree's "dead wife".
Now you find out it was your "friend" John, and you want to give him a pass? Why? Because he had an accident and has used it to his advantage ever since?
In addition, he has been lashing out at anyone who dares disagree with him, with a number of different socks in different locations, such as "Fitchburg". Do you really think he's in the corner in fetal position, or do you recognize his new posts?
Now I do wish to offend.
You're as crazy as a bedbug.

Who do you want for senate?
#2561 Oct 6, 2012
That would be true if under Obama's leadership we hadn't added 5.2 million private sector jobs in the past 31 months. It took him a while stop the free fall, but he did.
#2562 Oct 6, 2012
I did read it. I read ALL your posts, dear. I agree, it will take a while to finish turning the country around.
IMO, the fat cat head of the Republican party have found ways to spin the fact that their mess couldn't be cleaned up quickly. NO one could have done a better job after the mess they made.
They find commentators like Rush Limbaugh calling the Democrats "useful idiots", while they're sitting behind closed doors laughing at the real useful idiots they get to follow them.
The leaked video of what Romney REALLY thinks of people is just the tip of the iceberg.
If they make enough noise, the Republicans will win, and "John" will have to get a job.
#2563 Oct 6, 2012
I also do not need to go watch a 'documentary" to brainwash me.
I realize we've had an actor for president and at least one for governor (I can only think of Schwartzenegger at the moment), but the day won't come that I let a movie do my thinking for me.
#2564 Oct 6, 2012
It's been a long day for me, but before I sign off, I'd like to say, I enjoy your posts.
You appear to have a good understanding of the military.
#2565 Oct 6, 2012
Are you on rugs Mary. Barry has not added 5.2 million jobs. The unemployment numbers don't reflect those who have stopped looking for work. Should be 11 percent
#2566 Oct 6, 2012
I appreciate your attempt to make peace, but we don't agree about either poster. Leave it at that.
I hope your healing progresses and you can hit the golf course soon.
#2567 Oct 6, 2012
