OK--- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_policy_...

Take a good read. Doubt it will help you and your talking point Dem/libs.

The unemployment is down in the "economic Indicators' about 3/4 of the way down the article.

Now that is facts.

Net we can get facts for your Obama for the first 4 years.

How many times has a Democratic President knocked on your door and demanded you relinquish your guns? Any answer but ZERO would be considered "fuzzy math."

Fact -- unemployment grew by 60% from the beginning of his administration to the end.

Bank of America has frozen the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms, according to its owner, Joe Sirochman.

“After countless hours on the phone with Bank of America, I finally got a manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold for further review -- her exact words were --‘We believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the Internet.’

What stunned House Speaker John Boehner more than anything else during his prolonged closed-door budget negotiations with Barack Obama was this revelation: "At one point several weeks ago," Mr. Boehner says, "the president said to me,'We don't have a spending problem.' "

Mr. Boehner confirms that at one critical juncture he asked Mr. Obama, after conceding on $800 billion in new taxes, "What am I getting?" and the president replied: "You don't get anything for it. I'm taking that anyway."

Mr. Boehner is frustrated that Republicans were portrayed by the press as dogmatic and unyielding in these talks. "I'm the guy who put revenues on the table the day after the election," he says. "And I'm the guy who put the [income] threshold at a million dollars. Then we agreed to let the rates go up, on dividends, capital gains as a way of trying to move them into a deal.... But we could never get him to step up," Mr. Boehner says with a shrug. Negotiations with the White House ended in stalemate when "it became painfully obvious that the president won't cut spending."

“Houston, We have a problem”

For the record, I'm not totally against privatizing much of NASA. I beleive the private sector can do better and cheaper if given the opportunity.

But NASA's budget was around 20 billion per year (I think). That's a.drop in the bucket compared to EBT and welfare costs. At least we got to see something for our money. What are we getting in return for welfare? More babies. More welfare.

Of course, since The Bolshevik has been in charge, NASA's mission has been to just makes Muslims feel good about themselves.

"That has prompted NASA to advertise a long list of KSC facilities and equipment as available for use, lease or, in some cases, outright purchase by the right business. Among them: Launch Pad 39A, where shuttles were launched; space in the Vehicle Assembly Building, the iconic 526-foot-tall structure first used to assemble Saturn V-Apollo rockets; the Orbiter Processing Facilities, essentially huge garages where the shuttles were maintained; Hangar N and its high-tech test equipment; the launch-control center; and various other buildings and chunks of undeveloped property. A lot of the stuff needs to be transferred by the end of 2013, when federal maintenance money will run out. When it does, machinery will start to rust, and buildings will deteriorate in the harsh coastal-marsh environment of Cape Canaveral."

The SEC is screwed.

After last night's absolute trouncing of Notre Dame by Alabama and 7 straight National Football Championship victories, President Obama and Democrats in congress are already drafting the College Football Fairness bill. It will call for re-distribution of excess southern football resources and assets to less fortunate parts of the country.

I hope those quotes are correct, but Boehner is a politician just like Obama is.
I tend to doubt a lot of what Boehner said simply because IF Obama had stood his ground on the 250K, he could have gotten it, and a debt ceiling raise to boot. Instead Boehner got that 250K up to 450K and other concessions as well, simply by walking away and handing negotiations to McConnell.....
Obama had the upper hand in these negotiations and, managed to fold even though he was holding all the cards !

Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.
So let’s explain something to our ill-informed Democratic friends. In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent.
Of course, dozens sought to blame it all (as usual) on President George W. Bush.
But in fact, it was Mr. Obama who enacted the “holiday,” and, to be clear, the tax cut that he pushed throughout the campaign — remember? 98 percent of Americans will get a cut under his plan?— was really the extension of the Bush tax suts. Thus, it was Mr. Obama who raised taxes on millions of Americans, not Mr. Bush.

Where were those anti-tax tea party Republicans on this issue ???? Where was Grover Norquist ?? As they fought tooth and nail to protect those making over 250k from a 4% tax increase, they were solidly behind letting the 2% tax holiday on the rest of us expire......Hypocrites....no worse, solidly bought and paid for by those who pull their strings.

Personally, I don't mind paying into Social Security/Medicare so this increase doesn't bother me. What bothers me is the constant drumb beat to gut these programs that I have paid into all my working life. These proposals are being made by those sent to Washington to REPRESENT us...as public opinion runs 60 to 70 percent AGAINST changes to those programs.

Banks are getting impossible to do business with. The bank I have done business with for many years, has informed me that I can not cash a customer's two party check if the amount of the check is over one thousand dollars. So, if a customer owes me say $800.00 and gets a income tax refund check for $1200.00, and I cash it, get paid, and give that customer the balance, they will NOT honor that check for deposit in my business account. The same applies to payroll checks. And these jokers got billions in taxpayer's money to stay in business. A lot of them should be under the jail not making up new policies to make it harder for legitimate businesses to operate

Raising cain - but, despite liberals saying otherwise, tea party Republicans are being pushed aside by the Pub establishment. In fact, most all of them lost chairmanships in their committees due to Boehner's purge. My congressman did not vote for the 'deal' due to the real issue of cutting spending not being addressed.

OT, as someone that has paid into Social Security my whole working life and now recieving my SS every month it's on time, everytime.
Even my Conservative friends that can't stand Socialism, love getting it or even those that will soon start recieving it. But they are still behind those in Congress that want to gut it. I just don't understand them, and I've stopped asking them about this issue........it just goes nowhere.

OT, I sure hope things will change very soon for business owners like yourself. Small business owners like yourself is what is slowly building back this economy.
The light at the end of the tunnel for bank rules like this, I hope will be Elizabeth Warren.

That has been the plan all along. To get everyone dependent on the government. Make it harder for the "little" guys to operate so their corporate backers can have even more money. If everyone is dependent on the government, then it makes it harder for the people to fight back. They'll threaten to cut people off. People will get scared. This is how liberty is dying friends. All hail our corporate government overlords!

Not Faux news:

MSNBC host Ed Schultz uses the following lead in to his program: where truth and common sense rule!!!

On last Friday’s program, he said,“The gun laws and the gun violence in Chicago is a helluva lot different than it is in New York City. There's two different worlds when it comes to gun violence, it's not even close. New York City is not, you know, an all-safe zone or what not, I'm not trying to make that case. But a city that has got strict, the strictest gun laws in America put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, versus the gun laws that apparently don't even exist in Chicago, you've got two totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost.”

Gun laws don’t even exist in Chicago? I’ll grant you that Chicago does resemble the wild, wild, west, but they also have the most restrictive gun laws in the country.

And if you get your news from this organization, you’d have it all wrong, wouldn’t you?‘Splains alot.

Then you must do direct deposit, instead of supporting your union buddies at the Post Office.

Of course, then the check might not be on time, and it could get lost.
