I just want to say to all Americans, it is time to wake up. I was raised Democrat. My whole family were Democrats. But Obama and the Democratic party have definitely brought change. The Democratic party use to stand for the working class, Blue Collar worker. But that has changed. Look at their platform. They are for Gay rights. Hand outs, gun control, big unions, abortion, and the biggest GOD out of everything. They are for everything that has made this Country great. So I want you to think long and hard because there is no such thing as a Southern Democrat anymore.

The idiots that vote for the mudpuppy-in-chief are not smart enough to look toward the near future. They wan't their shit now and if their kid's and grandchildren are living in a cardboard boxlater in life, so be it.Suck's to be them. It's the "Demon"crat's way to try and stay in power. Lets borrow .40 cents on the dollar from China and give it to supporters and get them dependent on Big Brother.

Dat's right! We only lost 20 million jobs under Bush and we've only gained 4 1/2 million under Obama. We want to go back to the Bush policies. Mitts tax cuts for the rich will only add 5 trillion to our national debt. But who cares? Gays shouldn't have any rights. The Constitution only applies to 'the people'. Not to gays! We 'low income' Southern Republicans are so smart! God and Government, they just go together, don't they?

You got that wrong , Obama spent $6trillion and gave or stole most of it to his buddies , he hasn't created one single new job and as always you are just a lowlife liar about the number of jobs lost by Bush .
There would not be any problems if the community reinvestment act - from Jackass Jimmy Carter and fully implemented by Billy Blowjob clinton which allowed people who could not even afford to rent a house toxic loans to buy one and then not pay on the mortgage for years before being evicted .
That was the Freddy Mac Fanny mae democratic controlled house and senate that caused this crisis.

You can't get your head out of your ass long enough to learn anything. Base your vote on lies and misconception. That's what inbred Arkansans are expected to do.

Sound to me like you need a shoulder to cry on, Peter Puffer. Or is that slit-licker? Ya, your kind used to be all we had to worry about in society but those days are long gone. Do you remember that when Bush was in office the Congress was controlled by the Libtard's. Both houses. They were the ones that wrote the fucked up laws and regulations that sent us on our way down. Bush just signed off on them. Does the name Barney Frank ring a bell. Google him if it doesn't and read how him and the other Demoncrat's forced the banks to make loans to people even when it was clear they were not qualified. Why? BECAUSE IT SHOULD BE A RIGHT THAT "EVERYONE" SHOULD BE HOMEOWNERS. Barney's a queer also, so it will be a nice read for you

Its funny to think local people think they are smart enough to know about who to elect when you only have to look at the local leaders we have elected to know we don't have a clue. Half the people voting are too damn stupid to even know what each candidate stands for let alone how it would affect them. We should be ashamed that we have had a state trooper, a state senator, several lawyers go to jail, let alone the dope sellers and thieves we have elected. Two things either we like crooks or we are stupid!

The Truth-O-Meter Says:
"After a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years."
Barack Obama on Thursday, September 6th, 2012 in his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
Barack Obama says U.S. has gained a half-million manufacturing jobs
Share this story:
This chart shows employment in the manufacturing sector from 1999 to 2012.
During his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., President Barack Obama touted recent growth in manufacturing jobs.
"After a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years," Obama said.
Because of the wording of his claim, we are examining whether the numbers are right, not whether Obama's policies were instrumental. To check the numbers, we turned to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the federal governmentís official source for employment numbers. We used seasonally adjusted statistics for manufacturing jobs.
A decade of decline
Itís not news that manufacturing jobs have been in decline in the United States in recent years, though sometimes with ups and downs. Generally, the decline has been due to broad economic shifts both inside and outside the United States, as well as changes in technology. Manufacturingís share of U.S. employment was 29 percent in 1960, but it fell to just 9 percent by 2011. Even the raw numbers of manufacturing jobs fell over that period -- from 15.7 million to 11.7 million -- despite a large expansion of the overall U.S. workforce.
Between December 1999 and December 2009 -- the decade Obama appears to be referring to -- manufacturing employment fell from 17.3 million to 11.5 million, a decline of just over one-third. So Obamaís correct that manufacturing jobs had experienced "a decade of decline" by the time he took office. If you look at the chart (reproduced above) the downward slope is essentially uninterrupted.
Half a million manufacturing jobs created
During the period Obama chose -- from January 2010 to July 2012 -- manufacturing jobs began to rise again, by 532,000. Thatís "over half a million manufacturing jobs," as Obama put it.
Itís worth noting that while the reversal has been striking, this rise has still replaced only a fraction of the manufacturing jobs lost during the "decade of decline." The manufacturing jobs gained during the turnaround replaced less than 10 percent of the jobs lost during the decade of decline.
Our rating
The rise in manufacturing jobs that Obama is referring to may be modest compared to the prior decadeís decline, but he has described the numbers carefully. We rate

The truth is that he spent 1 trillion and know one knows where it went. Democratic party continues to pump money into entitlement programs for votes. They have created a total dependance on government. Look at it this way. When you were a kid you would do what ever your parents wanted to have permission to do, go somewhere or for money. That will be the same with the American people if they have their way. They are training you America. They are taking away all your freedoms. Please wake up America.

the fed has put trillions into the economy to falsely pump up the stock market. buying 50 billion worth of bonds monthly with new printed money. we will pay for it eventually with high inflation, interest, and unemployment.

can anyone explain how the stock market has grown from 10,000 to 13,000 in one year with our high unemployment, food stamps, and stagnant economy.
