All this back and forth among Barney II and a host of others is amusing. Do you people have any idea what a shill is and its purpose? I would bet most of you do. Obviously Topix sells advertising on this site, the more viewers they get, the more they can charge.
Being the moniker Barney has been on this thread since its inception makes me think that this person is not here for recreational purposes.
Now lets see how long this post stays up, before Topix uses it authority to remove it.
Please do not stop, the moniker Barney II has a job, you get free entertainment, and the people at Topix rake in those advertising dollars.

As I have told you on many occasions, your post show you are not smart enough to analyze a Liberal or a progressive or even under stand one.
I went inside the numbers to prove a point. The majority of high information voters do not vote Republican.
LOL, if any one is trying to make them self feel better in the midst of a abject failure, that would be you sir.
In the six months and four days since the 113th Congress began, it has passed 13 laws. Zero of the 13 bills were job bills.
That sir , with our unemployment numbers today is a fail.
Please correct me if I am wrong, I believe at the moment you will find more Republicans in Congress than Democrats.
It's actually easy to understand a liberal or progressive. One must know that liberals and progressives use lies and deceit to get what they want. Everything they do has the appearance of the "common good" but when all the dust settles the only one that truly benefits is the liberal. If they told what they really wanted to do to America, they would never get in office. A person only needs to understands that, Liberals get all the low information voters for which are many. I would suspect the high information voters are split close to 50/50. Where liberals fail is with the common sense voter that drives this nation. In other words, the meat and potatoes of America. Liberals simply can't understand common sense. They live in an idealistic fantasia that, when those policies are transfered to reality, things fall apart. This is where the blame game comes in. Liberals never go into a debate or situation without knowing who to blame if things go south. In other words, they don't accept responsiblity very well when their policies fail (which is often). Notice how much blame has and still is being placed on Bush? Never in our history has a former president been blamed for a current president's failures. Until now. As for jobs, with 2/3 of our government being Democratic, I would think you would be outraged at the lack of leadership from your party. I mean, who controls 67% of an organization and can't get anything accomplished unless there is a complete lack of leadership. I find it funny that when Obama got in office and the unemployment went up to 10% you were blaming Bush for the 700K jobs lost in a month yet when the economy doesn't grow fast enough then it's Congress' fault. See what I mean by not taking responsibility. Forget it, you probably don't.

If you want to bash this president why don't you do it in the name of the bug that is really up your ass. SOCIAL issues like DOMA, and various other ungodly laws as you Christians see it.
We both know don't we?
Its called the BILL OF RIGHTS.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed BY THEIR CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are LIFE, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Notice the verbiage....."their creator" not your creator"....meaning whoever whatever that man believes in.
Social issues certainly constitute the largest percentage of my discontent with Obama. As for the rest, I told you that I would refrain from talking Christianity with you unless it's in the context of the post and your post certainly applies. Not all people who see things my way are Christians so you really need to consider that before you simply toss a Christian blanket over the entire issue. The only thing I would ask you about the Declaration of Independence (Not the Bill of Rights) is what if their Creator is against homosexuality and has clearly said as much? It's no secret that the founders were overwhelmingly Christian whether or not you care to admit it. Christians believe in Jesus Christ. Our founders are the ones who wrote the Declaration of Independence so what Creator do you think they were talking about? In Christianity, any mention of God or His Word, is always capitalized. If you look at the Declaration of Independence, the word Creator is capatalized. Take from that what you will, but I know (and I suspect you do too) what Creator our founders were speaking of and He abhors homosexuality. His Word is quite clear on this. If you want, you can look it up for yourself. Since you went to the Creator argument, you just threw away a very important part of the liberal agenda and that's using science, who don't believe we were created by a superior being, to discredit Christianity in order to continue to destroy
America. Your liberal cronies might not be happy about that but I won't tell anyone.

LMAO- tell the U.S. public that the 188,000 jobs added in June is not real just made up survey. The poll numbers are NOT "published as undisputable" a little research will teach you the method of how the BLS calculate the numbers. Please keep in mind those numbers can and do increase or decrease. And that number above came from ADP, the nations largest payroll book keeping service, not the BUREAU OF LABOR, they will come out Fri.
Mom and Pop business's leading the pack in hiring, WHOOPS, what happen, that nasty ole Obama care was predicted to kill job growth, especially in the small business category.
I do not expect the UE numbers to drop Fri, because as employment grows more of those lazy, good for nothing individuals waiting for a Government hand out, are throwing their hat back into the employment ring.
With mom and pop business hiring people who spend what they make you can expect the economy to grow.
Spin it any way you wish Barney it won't change the fact that our economy and country is heading in a downward spiral hidden by manipulated data and currency by our government. Your side has people out listening to those who expose this and immediately discredit them with negative propaganda. The pathway to hiding the ultimate outcome of Obama's agenda is narrowing with fewer and fewer options. It's just a matter of time before the whole thing comes crashing down around our ears. Obama will be gone by that time and whoever takes his place will be left with an enormous mess to get us out of. Hopefully, it will be a Conservative with solid fiscal policies. One can only hope.

If it tickles you pink to think you are enlightening us with your political knowledge and numbers, then you just keep on patting yourself on the back and keep on posting! We've been humored by your ramblings now for years!
Your ridiculous posts are about as detrimental to the Democratic ticket as the prosecution is helpful to George Zimmerman!!
You see Barney, the ploy here is to simply drop the bait and wait for you to bite! And the very funnny thing is...you always do!
Barney has a HUGE problem with independents. Since he can't blame Obama's failues on independents, he simply reverts back to what he knows which is blaming Republicans for his leader's failures. This causes him to simply call all independents he is arguing against Republicans no matter how many times they tell him they are an independent. It's really sad to watch him flounder around like that when his liberal ideology gets dismanteled, but it happens alot.

Now, you know we aren't here to seriously talk politics with you! The thread is entitled,'Did you vote today?' That pretty much let's you know this thread is for comedy! Heck, You've been rambling for years, and we've yet to see an enlightening political thought or idea from you yet that we would/could/should take seriously!
If it makes you feel better, Barney to laugh your body parts off, or roll around on the floor like a hysterical hyenia, or even to continue patting yourself on the back from your vain attempts at witty repartee and the ever-so tiresome cut and paste posts from your same old spin doctor sites, well, then let 'er rip, tater chip!

You've been making us all laugh at you for a long time now...there's no reason you shouldn't be able to get in on the fun, too.

Well you are ruining it for Barney. Three nights a week he goes to McDonald's, puts on his paper hat and apron, and while he sweeps and empties the deep fryer he tells the employees that can make change how he goes on the computer and makes adults look bad. I feel that if his coworkers can humor him, we should also. Please play nice with Barney, he is a special child.

Simply find a study and look at the controls used and you will quickly realize that by changing what is controlled for can alter the results drastically within the same survey. In the example Barney used and the one you looked at, you will realize that those who aren't looking, aren't being counted in the unemployment rate (though that wasn't what we were talking about originally). What would the unemployment rate be if they were counted? The answer is 12.05%. They aren't working and most of them have been looking for work sometime in the past 5 years so why not count them? It's a great example of why anyone would be foolish to take one single study and form their opinion based on that study. These study's and polls are no more than tools used by one party or the other to gain a political advantage. We should simply use them as novelty tidbits of information and no more.
