I would have thought that the numbers would've been even higher considering how many people couldn't get to work after SuperStorm Sandy.......

But I'm sure that a report by Breitbart wouldn't slant their reporting to make a political point!

Really! Jobless claims are up because people couldn't get to work for a few days?? Wow! Apparently those on the East Coast prefer to have unemployment? Who knew! Thanks, Bob for this fantastic insight!

I'm starting to think that you a Grandville Jim in drag!

What part of flooded businesses, no power, no jobs can't you figure out?

Unless of course you've decided to admit that Obama and FEMA actually fixed all the storm damage in just a couple of days, and that all of the teabagger whining about slow response to the storm was a partisan lie.

Good Day,

Hey Blue! One would have thought (MSNBC) the economy would come roaring back just as soon as the anointed one was re-elected. Guess not. We will see in the next few months.

And the numbers will be bad for this week too as nearly 18,500 jobs were lost at Hostess.

How considerate of you Blue. As long as it doesn't affect you, you don't care. No wonder you fit in so well with the libs.

Good Day,

Then why is this administration adopting the European Socialist model? I am looking outward and don't like what I see.

Twinkies - going for upwards of $100+ on Ebay! Not to worry though - those that really want them can make their own!

Nonstick cooking spray or vegetable oil
1/2 cup cake flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk, preferably whole
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
Seven-Minute Filling, er, Frosting

What examples of, European Socialism have we adopted?....Healthcare? When do answers become more important than criticizms? Especially when, the whole country has just chosen the path, they want?

Good Day,

Sorry - I had to step away...

The Obama administration has gone haywire on these and other "Socailist" policies. For example - it has been reported that more individuals went on disability vs. found a job in June. Something is seriously wrong with that. Ask the folks in coal country how Obama's (EPA) energy policies have hurt them. These policies have lead to no fewer that 111 coal fired electric plants closing their doors - I wonder how those folks feel about losing their jobs? We have more people on food stamps than ever before. The US poverty rate has skyrocketed on his watch. All by design. Afterall, he was a student of Alinsky. Was it not Alinsky who promoted the destruction of not just the wealthy, but the middle class? Yes it was... That is who this president is.

That said... Acrimony is part of the American political tradition. The Founding Fathers (many not all) were at each others throats over the Constitution. The election of 1800 (Jefferson v Adams) is considered by many historians to perhaps have been the most vicious campaign in American history. So I don't think it is going anywhere soon.

In the first place, the "whole country" did not choose the path they want. 47% of the country voted AGAINST Obama. As for your European comment, you are the one who just finished telling us to be concerned about Europe's economy because it is in poor shape, but ours is grand??? Make up your mind!
