The economic implosion of Europe is accelerating. Even while the mainstream media continues to proclaim that the financial crisis in Europe has been “averted”, the economic statistics that are coming out of Europe just continue to get worse. Manufacturing activity in Europe has been contracting month after month, the unemployment rate in the eurozone has hit yet another brand new record high, and the official unemployment rates in both Greece and Spain are now much higher than the peak unemployment rate in the United States during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

The economic situation in Europe is far worse than it was a year ago, and it is going to continue to get worse as austerity continues to take a huge toll on the economies of the eurozone. It would be hard to understate how bad things have gotten – particularly in southern Europe. The truth is that most of southern Europe is experiencing a full-blown economic depression right now.

Sadly, most Americans are paying very little attention to what is going on across the Atlantic. But they should be watching, because this is what happens when nations accumulate too much debt. The United States has the biggest debt burden of all, and eventually what is happening over in Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Greece is going to happen over here as well.

Obama and Congress just negotiated the "Fiscal Cliff" deal that did NOTHING do address our SPENGING problem.
Something wicked this way comes...and it is accelerating.

I doubt it, since I've worked at 6 of them, in 4 different Counties...some on Staff and some not...and been Chief Union Steward in one of them...and 3 out of the 6 made completely different products, including Automobile Parts.
If you truly have worked in all the fields that you claim to have worked in, then you would be either 95 years old and worked until you were 90, Or 65 years old, as you claim, and have never held a job long enough to know anything about it or unions. If you were a Chief Union Steward, as you claim, it must have been because you were the only Union worker in the shop, so you were steward for yourself only. Get real and stop all your lies.

Who do you think union workers work for? And if you are making these ludicrous statements sober, then you are still the idiot.
As a Union worker, I worked for money and benefits. Now to get that, I would have my Union bargain for me..........and bargain they did, yes sometimes we had to go on strike but in the end we got what we wanted. Today it is getting very hard to bargain for various reasons.
BTW, you keep throwning out "idiot", I know one time I bounced it back to you, but it really does not help your argument. This is very child-like, not like adults who should act and speak like an adult.

The Mother Jones report states:“In the wake of the slaughters this summer at a Colorado movie theater and a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, we set out to track mass shootings in the United States over the last 30 years. We identified and analyzed 62 of them, and one striking pattern is this: In not a single case was the killing stopped by a civilian using a gun.”(According to the criteria used in their research, a mass shooting is when the "shooter took the lives of at least four people.")
When armed civilians or off-duty police officers are present in active shooter scenarios they respond quickly—usually preventing the situation from becoming a mass shooting. For example, in 2007, former police officer Jeanne Assam volunteered to work security at her church in Colorado and prevented a mass shooting:
Jeanne Assam Saves The Day
There was also the recent incident of a gunman opening fire at the Mayan Palace Theatre in San Antonio just days after the Connecticut shooting. An off-duty cop stopped the gunman.
Gunman Shoot Gun at San Antonio MovieTheater Mayan Palace Theatre
Of course, there are other examples of “civilians” preventing mass shootings. Mark Hemingway over at The Weekly Standard provides more examples:
-- Winnemuccas, Nev., 2008: Ernesto Villagomez opens fire in a crowded restaurant; concealed carry permit-holder shoots him dead. Total dead: Two.(I'm excluding the shooters' deaths in these examples.)
-- Appalachian School of Law, 2002: Crazed immigrant shoots the dean and a professor, then begins shooting students; as he goes for more ammunition, two armed students point their guns at him, allowing a third to tackle him. Total dead: Three.
-- Santee, Calif. 2001: Student begins shooting his classmates -- as well as the "trained campus supervisor"; an off-duty cop who happened to be bringing his daughter to school that day points his gun at the shooter, holding him until more police arrive. Total dead: Two.
-- Pearl High School, Mississippi, 1997: After shooting several people at his high school, student heads for the junior high school; assistant principal Joel Myrick retrieves a .45 pistol from his car and points it at the gunman's head, ending the murder spree. Total dead: Two.
-- Edinboro, Pa., 1998: A student shoots up a junior high school dance being held at a restaurant; restaurant owner pulls out his shotgun and stops the gunman. Total dead: One.
Believe what you will, Mr. Schultz, but it’s more accurate to say that "civilians" have prevented more mass shootings than “gun-free zones” have.
Nuh...you're quoting Mother Jones??? Well, bless your 'lil ole Sweet Heart, you just made my day, even if you did disagree with it. Seriously, that makes me very happy just to know that you're reading it. You don't have to agree with it, but just to know you're reading it makes me just want to kiss you! Maybe, I've not been wasting all of my time , after all. I'd like to think I can take credit for introducing you to it, anyway.:)

<quoted text>
Boehner is not a Lib to Moderate...if he were, he's be a Democrat. He is a Moderate Republican. Considering how far Right the Republican Party has become, a Moderate Republican just means that he's not quite as crazy as all the rest of them.
The Senate goes by the "Super Majority" Rule to pass everything. It has no choice until the Members of the Senate vote to change it and since that would take 60 votes to do and some of the Teapublicans would have to vote FOR changing it, along with the Democrats, that's very unlikely to happen!
So, the bottom line is that the Teapublicans have the Majority numbers to control all the House Votes...and the Teapublicans, because of the "60 Vote Rule to Pass" anything in the Senate, the Teapublicans can keep anything in the Senate from Passing.
Therefore, YOU ARE WRONG! It is the TEAPUBLICANS, NOT the Democrats, who control EVERYTHING in the House and the Senate, and the Ball is in their Court!
Let's stand back and watch how many things they screw up in the next two years...that will take us years to straighten out, if and when the Democrats win the Majority, again! And if the Democrats don't win back the Majority in the House and Senate, in 2 years, the Teapublicans will have longer than 2 years to screw even more things up!
You People that think your vote doesn't count...this is the reason it does!
Most bills, including budgets, only need a simple majority to pass the Senate. The super majority is mostly needed to stop a filibuster. No Republicans have attempted to filibuster proposed Senate bills recently because the President's assistant dictator, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid(Democrat from Nevada) will not allow them to be brought to the floor of the Senate for discussion or vote. He will not send them to committee for discussion. They sit on his desk while this country goes down the tubes and you Liberals try to blame it on the Republicans when it is, YOUR OWN PARTY that is sitting on their laurels and not doing the job that they are overpaid to do.

The last budget Obama proposed went down in flames in both houses getting ZERO votes from either party. That is because it was so ridiculous that HE KNEW no one would go for it. It was put forth only so he could say that he offered it. Obama never expected it to pass because any budget would not help him fulfill his goal of "fundamentally changing America" into an entirely socialist state. He wants to bankrupt this country and he is using Liberal idiots like you to help spread the propaganda.

You lie and say you do not want gun control but it is only a matter of time until YOUR HERO Obama tries to take guns from all citizens, including you.

But you keep copying and pasting your liberal rants from the official "PARTY" talking points. Follow the rules of your "PARTY" like all good communists should. It would not be so obvious that you are using "party" designated talking points, if all of you did not use the SAME EXACT WORDS AND PHRASES in your arguments. You do not have the intelligence to put them in your own words. You can all state or post ONLY WHAT THE "PARTY" TELLS YOU TO SAY.

Even though you weren't directing that at me, Dunlapian, your point was well taken. Maybe someday, if I work on it hard enough, I gain enough patience to stop using that word, myself.
I really think that it's just a habit and probably one that I should break.

The Americans that were affected by Sandy are doing what they can to rebuild and try to get back to a normal life which is still very far away.
In the meantime Americans in the affected area will just leave, others will divorce, familys will split up, and yes some will committ suicide.
I've seen it before.........but not to this magnitude.
"The bill’s nearly $60.4 billion price tag exceeds the annual budgets for many Cabinet departments, and the soft underbelly remains $16 billion designated for vaguely defined community development block grants."

So we should just pass any bill no matter what's in it? When we don't have the $$?

Sassy, sometimes the posters drag myself down to their level and I do the same thing. But I also have to keep trying to act like an adult. We are all human's and not perfect, and if we understand this we will be one step ahead.

I actually don't remember. What I remember is that Newt lost his bid for re-election the very next time and he hasn't been able to buy a Political position since he did that. BIG MISTAKE on his part...if he wanted to stay in Politics and obviously, he did!

Republicans just never seem to learn from their mistakes.

What part of restoring the damage "block by block", since we doling it out to them "Piecemeal-style", don't you understand?

If we don't have the money to help our Citizens after a Natural disaster get things cleaned up , so they have a place to rebuild and a roof over their heads, then we just might as well fold this Tent and move on, because we don't have a Country worth caring about, anymore!
Maybe we can go to Iraq, where 8 Billion dollars just disappeared into thin air, while bush was President and that's just a drop in the bucket of what we've spent over there, to help the Iraqi people, including their Leaders. But, we can't help our own People at a time like this and under these circumstances. If we've sunk that Low-down, this Country's not worth trying to save!

What an idiot. This man makes my skin crawl. And that voice is almost as bad as Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Sen. Schumer Asks Gun Retailers To Stop Sales As Congress Debates

"NEW YORK — Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation."

Let’s see. I make my living selling guns, and this jerk wants me to stop while they debate. Who pays my bills while congress debates? How long will that take? As long as it has taken for the Senate to pass a budget? I’ll need foodstamps.

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/01/13/sen...

How about the government stop collecting taxes until a real budget gets passed?

What occurred was, and I realize at your advanced age you are prone to memory loss,(LOL)....

A balanced the budget for the first time in 40 years in 1997, 1998, 1999. And a $230 billion surplus to boot...

It's about time for another government shutdown - don't you think?

I don't think you're right about what happened. I don't know how good or bad your memory is because you don't have a clue what happened. As I recall, nothing happened of any consequence because it didn't last long enough and Newt was taking so much heat because of it, he called it off and was as meek as a Lamb after that and the Republicans agreed to everything Clinton wanted! And Newt hasn't lived it down until this day!

Since when is it my responsibility to help people that cry to the feds after a natural disaster? I did not ask the Government for help. Not even after the floods in Kansas and Tennessee and a hurricane in Virginia. I just buckled down and worked to replace my losses. Incidentally, I have said all along that we never should have gotten into foreign aid as a country. It is not my job to "save" all of them either. Charities helped people in other countries very well before our country got involved and started giving money to the leaders in those countries who lined their own pockets with it and it never made it to the people it was supposed to help. Of course, since the US decided to give this money away, they had to take more from the taxpayers, who, in turn, had less to give charities so they could help less people. In all, foreign aid is just a way for politicians to feel good about themselves while further stealing from the American people in order to try and buy the friendship of countries who do and forever will hate us.
