I been all over the state trying to find a job guess what the state put a frezze on hiring if their is money where is it at. I'll tell you where it is in their bank accounts. If you dont belive me thats fine but look at the fancy cars they drive and homes they live in so dont tell me theirs jobs.
Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on all 10 of the important issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports.

The GOP has consistently been trusted on most issues for months now, but in July they held the lead on only nine of the key issues.

Republicans lead Democrats 47% to 39% on the economy, which remains the most important issue to voters. Those numbers are nearly identical to those found in June. Republicans have held the advantage on the economy since May of last year.

But for the first time in months, Republicans now hold a slight edge on the issues of government ethics and corruption, 40% to 38%. Voters have been mostly undecided for the past several months on which party to trust more on this issue, but Democrats have held small leads since February. Still, more than one-in-five voters (22%) are still not sure which party to trust more on ethics issues.

Government ethics and corruption have been second only to the economy in terms of importance to voters over the past year.

AT LEAST THE PEOPLE ARE PAYING ATTENTION, SOROS IS JUST PAYING MONEY TO YOU LOONS AND GETTING LITTLE FOR IT.........19%.....WHAT A POWER HOUSE.

So the feds are useing tax dollars to pay for people to got to work ,, while they are also increasing taxes and expenses, aka health insurance,,, on everyone...
Why dont they just decrease taxes, and make tax incentives and quit spending....
If business new they werent going to have to pay for what the democrats and Obama has shown we are going to have to pay,,, it would be easier to hire and expand... But the fact is this stimulus has limitations and will run out,,, and after the Federal expenses forced by th Democrats and Obama hits,,,everyone will be layed off,, Then where will we be,,, people loseing jobs and tax burden from the feds... What a bunch ob BS....

Clearly you are only qualified to be private soldier, so your impression of how much people make in the military must be based on that myopic view. You'll find that over in officer country the pickings are pretty good. A general officer makes between $200,000 and $500,000 a year all told, but that is peanuts compared to what the real big boys make.
No my friend, if I wanted to make money from the military I would want to do it the way that Dick Cheney and his friends at Haliburton did it, or the way that Donnie Rumsfeld and his friends at Blackwater did it, or the way that Robert Stevens over at Lockheed Martin is doing it ..... by the trainload.
Any way you slice it we spend over one trillion dollars a year on our military, but less then 16% of that goes to military personnel.
So when I hear people carping about how the sky is falling because our President and Congress put together a one-time expenditure package designed to help "Main Street" through the Great Republican Recession, I am amused, because we spend that much every year on our military, year in and year out.
I think you should move your LIB @$# to that western state thats doing so well. So you dont ruin this state anymore than you already have. That is what you LIBs are good at ruining this great nation by all your free hand out to people who don't want to work. GET THE HELL OUT!!!!!!

Truth, you're an idiot! These aren't "handouts." And BTW, this state was ruined a long time ago by the sooners (not the football team, although they have been know to cheat just as bad!) and all the corrupt politicians we've had throughout the years! We are making progress, but it's been a long, steep hill to climb! Now this country has problems too, but who's fault is it? Liberal Dems, the conservative GOP? The answer is BOTH! I get the impression most politicians are childish at heart. Whenever their party is dominant, they push extreme legislation in order to "spite" the other party who can do nothing about it. If people would truly work together and try to solve problems, I think we could overcome anything. I really wish we would move away from the two party system we currently have and get some fresh ideas in Washington, because especially in this state, the people we have been sending there to govern us are a bunch of MORONS!

My friend, it seems to me that you strive to convince not through the strength of your argument, but by the shrillness of your voice.

What is there about observing that we spend a trillion dollars a year on our military that makes you think I am a liberal? I am in fact a centrist.

Many radical neo-cons like yourself have been claiming that the sky is falling because our government made a one time expenditure with the intent of helping middle-class Americans get through the worst economic crisis since the great depression.

I observed that if spending a trillion dollars would be the ruin of our nation then we would have been ruined a long time ago since we spend over one trillion dollars every year on our military, year in and year out.

Your response to my observing this fact is to do your best to deny me my right to free speech, and deny me residence in the place of my birth.

So I ask you, do you know what makes this a great nation, and what in your words contributes to that greatness?

Now Okies can be proud that Okieland voted all red.
Trillions of dollars in stimulous and Okieland gets
a whole 12 million. Now that's Okie pride at work.

Since the state's filled with posters like the above,
it's no wonder it's the laughing stock of the nation.

Thankfully great numbers of Okies seem to be concentrated
in Okieland.

I thought "Truth" was a looser, but then you actually managed to out-do him in terms of being an ignorant, inbreed, hillbilly, redneck bigot.

In a just world Texas actually would be a whole 'nother country. One that I thankfully was not a part of. The state that foisted Bush on the rest of us has no right to point it's finger at anyone.

I cannot believe that KWTV show the US Open for two weeks and then you cannot see the main event.I am sorry if your station would have told the viewers that you where not showing the match, maybe we could have tape on the CBS West. Also we want Regis back!I am a loyal fan of KWTV thats why I am upset you guys are better than this. The people do matter.
