And this is your answer?????????

Then why was the State of California in so much financial trouble three years after Herr Arnold took his place?

Seems Arnold had a little scandal of his own, if I remember correctly.

<quoted text>Democrats in Craighead, Mississippi and Crittenden counties are doing it right now, all parties do it. If you don't have a real race in your party, you try to have your candidate run against the weakest opposing candidate. Not really having the screws put to you, but that sounds more dramatic than what happened.
So where it's against the law, it's OK?

And I guess it's OK to redistrict when you have the majority, so you can insure your parties seat forever?

Maybe I'm too simple, but I didn't understand one thing you just posted. But here is some common sense info for you. The ups and downs of the economy is, and always has been, consumer driven. If the consumers feel confident enough to spend money then businesses will hire, unemployment will go down, investors will start to invest, and our economy will get stronger. It's the law makers job to pave the way for that type of environment. But everything still hinges on whether or not consumers are willing to let go of their disposable income. The numbers will take care of themselves. You put entirely too much stock in charts and statistics.

That is an understatement, for someone not to understand this is just denying historical fact. Discovers below show a significant advantage when a Democrat occupied the White House in each of the five categories.

% Per Annum Democrat Republican Bush43

GDP Growth 4.1% 2.9% 2.2%

Employment 2.9% 1.70 .5%

CPI 4.0% 5.1% 3.0%

DJIA 8.1% 6.5% 0.9%

Dollar +0.8%- 3.6%- 5.9%



It simpley says, in the last 40 years the economy has done better with a Democrate president.

If you're an Arkansas voter and plan to vote in the Democrat primary, please vote for John Wolfe for President. I'll vote in the Republican primary because there is no Democrat running for White County Judge. I'm Bill and I approved this message.

Except, I don't deny my name changes.

BTW, if you repudiate never having used different handles on topix, we both know better...and my current moniker just reflects the social role played by of most of the people I encounter here.

Lighten up, this is no more than a diversion we play at best, at worst it rankles a few feathers.

( CNSNews.com )- President Barack Obama pointed a finger at the news media today when he gave the commencement address at all-female Barnard College in New York City, attributing some of the blame for what he described as a lack of faith in American institutions on news reports that focus on “sensationalism” and “scandal” and carry “a message that change isn’t possible."

In a survey conducted last September, Gallup discovered that 47 percent of Americans believe the media is "too liberal" while only 13 percent believe it is "too conservative." Thirty-six percent said they believed the media was "just about right."

“And while opportunities for women have grown exponentially over the last 30 years, as young people, in many ways you have it even tougher than we did,” Obama said.

“This recession has been more brutal, the job losses steeper,” he said.“Politics seems nastier. Congress more gridlocked than ever. Some folks in the financial world have not exactly been model corporate citizens.

“No wonder that faith in our institutions has never been lower, particularly when good news doesn’t get the same kind of ratings as bad news anymore,” Obama said.“Every day you receive a steady stream of sensationalism and scandal and stories with a message that suggest change isn’t possible; that you can’t make a difference; that you won’t be able to close that gap between life as it is and life as you want it to be.

“My job today is to tell you don’t believe it,” said Obama.“Because as tough as things have been, I am convinced you are tougher. I’ve seen your passion and I’ve seen your service. I’ve seen you engage and I’ve seen you turn out in record numbers. I’ve heard your voices amplified by creativity and a digital fluency that those of us in older generations can barely comprehend. I’ve seen a generation eager, impatient even, to step into the rushing waters of history and change its course.

“And that defiant, can-do spirit is what runs through the veins of American history,” Obama said.“It’s the lifeblood of all our progress. And it is that spirit which we need your generation to embrace and rekindle right now.”

In each of the last 12 years, Gallup has run surveys asking Americans: "In general do you think the news media are too liberal, just about right, or too conservative." Every year, between 44 and 48 percent have said "too liberal." The largest percentage that ever said "too conservative" was 19 percent in 2006.

I have said in previous posts that today's democratic party is not your grandma's democratic party. This irresponsible socialistic element of the democratic party began at Jimmy Carter. If Bill Clinton was not in the current mix of Carter, Clinton, and Obama then these numbers would look vastly different. The way was paved for radical socialism back in the 60's when Lyndon Johnson allowed the Great Society to be put into place with all of the welfare and social programs that are wasting money and being abused for simple political gain. You say things are just fine yet if you look around all anyone is talking about is how tough things are. There is a definite disconnect between today's democratic party and the citizens of the United States. Even people who support the democratic party are saying how bad things are. The amount of discussion on how bad things are are far greater under Obama than under Reagan, Bush 1, and Bush 2 combined. I guess it's what we consider "good" that makes us different and that will probably never change.

Did anyone see that this past week the Co-founder of Facebook dropped his U.S. citizenship because the tax code here in the U.S. is too burdensome (mainly capital gains tax). He moved to Sinapore because they have a less stringent tax code. California's democratic governor also announced last week that the $9.2 billion budget shortfall for fiscal year 2012 has already swelled to $16 billion in just 5 months. This is due to the fact that about 1000 businesses leave California for friendlier tax states like Texas every year because California has the highest taxes in the nation and the most burdensome regulations as well. Seems like big government supporters would learn but I guess not.

Why don't you tell everyone how spending as much money as Obama has spent is healthy for America. When do you expect things to turn around and how do you get past the fact that companies are not turning loose of the cash they are sitting on. Since you obviously just blindly follow whatever the liberal talking heads are saying. Please give us some confidence that your leader is not the irresponsible socialist he appears to be and let us know a timeline of how things are going to play out. Obama said no unemployment above 8% and we will cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term yet unemployment has never been below 8% except for maybe his first month which was only 11 days and the deficit has risen 66% instead of being reduced 50%(that is a 116% swing).

Davis was removed from office because of the financial mess the state had gotten into. California is one of the highest taxed states but it is one of the most irresponsible when it comes to social programs. I don't believe that Arnold's indiscretion had any more affect on his ability to run the state as Clinton's did on his running the country.

I think things will turn around next year when there will be a new Congress. You really do not think this group with a 9% approval rating will be seated again do you?

How do I, "get past the fact that companies are not turning lose of the cash they are sitting on" oh that is laughable, you do not think they may be doing that to manipulate things a bit does you?
Its doubtless big business is GOP friendly.

As far as the time line thing, I do not have any crystal balls to predict the future. But you really do not need one to know that this Republican majority House and filibuster happy Republican Senators are not going to do a Damn thing to help with any of that.

You know to think about that Red, it really is sad. If they had all three branches,(that they are willing to hold Americans hostage for) they would be even more miserable in a short while.

Sounds scary to me, do you think we should load up on food and ammo.
