The drain on the budget does not end until each, and every Government servant finds each other returning the shield to their other' hand that they dropped as "military politician's" - before they raised a sword of war.

Swords and shields do not mix.

----------

Declaring war reaps anti-climatic acts such as economic collapse, these inactions are markedly resultive of a hellbound Congressionalist that cannot
guide our Government while attacking through acts of division as they falsely claim to defend the United.

Recession is a specific economic term with a specific definition. It is not a term of art. That does not mean that people are not still feeling the effects of the recession. I probably lost 20%-25% of my net worth. That is no fun.Many people still don't have jobs or lost their houses or college funds. Those are painful events and the pain lingers until times improve.

Remember the old adage--a recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And I'll add, recovery is when Barack loses his.

So the measurements say the recession was over in June, 2009. That could not have been because of anything Barack Obama did. There was not enough time. Probably only 1% of the stimulus was spent by then.

The National Bureau of Economic Research is comprised of a panel of academic economists. What tards these people are. They use averages and formulas based on assumptions. Do not beleive anything they say. I hope they go back to academia and stay there, hopefully to choke on something at lunch.

Every month when we hear bad news, It is always, "Unemployment went up surprisingly" or "Surprisingly, more people filed for unemployment benifits.
It was The National Bureau of Economic Research that was surprised, but no one in the real world.
No one in the real world is hiring because they are afraid of more government regulation and taxes.

Well, you can thank the Republican party for the problems these people face.

This is the kind of country the Bush boys and the Republicans (and Independents, as they're just Republicans by any other name) wanted after all.

The Republicans are anti-middle class, pro-rich, this is the country they want, a small but super rich upper class, and a large lower class.

Bush cut the rich's taxes in 2001 and 2003 and wealth got redistributed upward as the middle class income declined like never before.

And you're actually thinking of voting Republican in 2010 and 2012?

Don't you love our country?

Many in Washington are clueless that there is even a recession, and many state goverments and even towns are spending money and raising taxes and fees at record speed.

Middle class America continues to get hurt, and no one in power really cares because their pockets continue to get lined with money

I have 2 points to make on this subject.
I was born and raised in Lowell.You could find a job on any corner,any street in and around Lowell back in the day.People got a job and worked there 30-40 years.Someone got a bright idea to turn every factory into a condo??
secondly the people I talk to with jobs today are working practically 24/7 and the companies don't care.so the way of life now is either no job or no life.What a shame
