"WASHINGTON (AP)-- A report Wednesday is expected to show the U.S. economy barely grew from April through June. But economists are hopeful that the weak second quarter is a temporary lull that gives way to stronger growth in the second half of the year."

So economists are now down to the level of "hopeful."
Sounds to me like they may be Obama's Economists using the word "hopeful."

Most Economists use other methods for their predictions, but not Obamas.

Living and depending on hope from Obama has caused the middle class income to drop from Appox $56k in 2011 to appox $38k today.
That's known as the Obama "hope and change" method of how to run a country.

Money/wealth/greed is most definitely a sensitive subject fo sooo many. As long as I know what I do, how I feel, the libs can say what we've already heard 1000s of times on this very forum. I'm not going to get in a knot about it.

Detroit is a dying city with little hope of renewal.
The best that Detroit can hope for is to reduce the size of the city, eliminate Union only workshops, and create an atmosphere of hope backed by honest government. Good luck with the honest government part.

If a person wishes to live their life as an idealist, I don't care. Take Mother Theresa that wanted to live her life as she did and that is a o.k. with me. What did she eat? Maybe grass and bark off trees? I don't think so. She had to get food either by donations which were paid for by some person that actually had a career or the Catholic Church. Where did the Church get the money? From people that worked hard that had careers.
If everyone wanted to live there life that way they would all starve. They need money and support from some richer working people.
These so called mavericks had their own career ladders. They had knowledge about their careers. They then went off and took that career ladder and formed their own companies. They didn't just suddenly wake one morning and say I think I'll just go to my garage and build a computer. They all ready had their careers going and had gained enough knowledge to go outside the corporate system to start their own corporations. They had visions and put in long hard hours to make their dreams come true. Then they got rich because they were so successful. Damn them! How dare they get rich for their work and self reliance. They will surely go to Hell for being so well off while others are poor. Just how many poor people did these rich people really help? Most probably gave a lot of money to charities, but didn't go around bragging about it as they were for the most part humble men. Still poor people think that the successful men should give more, and more, until they are as poor as they are.
Money is not the root of all evil. It is how money is used. It can be used for good or for bad.
You are really one sad and hate filled person. You ever heard the old saying "being in the right place at the right time"? Most of the people you site as being successful will readily admit to being in that place. They had the will and God given talent to take the ball and run. But others are never in the right place at the right time. They are not lazy nor bums, they can't find work, can't get ahead for a lot of different reasons, being lazy is not one. You are a great example of a person who is not successful. Or at least not successful in the eyes of a Bill Gates, you are just another of the working poor. Money is not the root of all evil, people like you are. No compassion, no will to help others help themselves. No give back in your heart. You say Jesus was a carpenter, but he was a carpenter who gave to and helped the poor. Bill Gates is giving most of his fortune away, he is not only rich, he is a good man. You on the other hand are one a sad little creature. Not everyone can have a "career", most are happy with just a JOB, other can't even find one. And you sit around all day looking at the glowing screen worrying that some poor person less fortunate than you is going to get one or YOUR dimes, how sad.

Is it true that when Right Wing Wacko Planet children play "Lone Ranger" do they automatically shoot "Tonto", because all Right Wing Wackos still believe "The only good Injun is a dead Injun" ?

We need to hire these poor sexually insecure and frustrated Right Wingers some hookers so they can have sex with a woman.

Maybe it's having slept with brothers, sisters and cousins for too long, but they just don't feel confident in their "manhood", but their obvious insecurity is just, as Momma used to say, "Ugly".

"MasterCard 2Q earnings climb as revenue grows."

Two explanations for their earnings increase.
1-Consumers are on a spending spree.
2-consumers have no money because of no jobs are going further into debt.


I choose number 2 as the reason. Reason being I see more and more people paying for a 79 cent purchase with a credit card, which means they don't even have change in their pockets.

Fox Reported:

Republican National Committee announces 2016 Party Platform.

The Republican National Committee announced today the following to be central to their 2016 Party Platform. "The Right Wing of the Party spent a lot of corporate "donations" to archive these victories", stated Grand Wizard .... er .... State Committeeman who spoke on conditions of anonymity,(enhanced by the mask he was wearing at the time).

- The immediate repeal of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
God created stoves, laundry, and children for women, and the Bible clearly tells them to shut up and obey their Husbands.
It all went straight to Hell when they stopped cooking and started voting - besides- when women can't vote - it'll be easier to regulate those uteruses their too stupid to control.

- The immediate repeal of the Civil Rights Act.
As Rand Paul says, if you own a business and don't want to do business with blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans,women, Muslims, Catholics, or any others, by God, that's America.
Let's be honest, if'n you ain't a white, property ownin, Christian, you ain't a "Real" 'Merican.

- Cutting all taxes on anyone and everyone to zero.
As Right Wing Americans keep saying, if you lower taxes you increase revenue,(don't ask - just have faith); therefore, just cut taxes to Zero,(especially for the rich), and the revenue will flood the government.
Hey. God parted the seas for Moses, surely He can make this work too.

- Immediately privatize Social Security and Medicare.
There are lots of investment advisors ( Bernie Madoff and Allen Stanford are available);
and
who wouldn't their health care dollars into profits, and bonuses for insurance company executives,
and an insurance company executive deciding whether you get that cancer surgery, or he gets that new Lamborghini ?
What are you ..a Com'nist ?

Think of the profits for investment advisors, funds, and banks, just like 401K saved Americans from those horrible pensions, this will save Americans from those lengthy "golden years."
If you don't have enough income during your working years to save for retirement, or those damn kids get sick, that's God's way of saying to you its "time to go."

- The reconstitution of the draft - but only for those unable to claim they attend college, or tour Europe saving souls for Mormans, or have daddy's who can get them into the Texas Air National Guard.
After all, we love folks who love war, as long as there's no need for them or their kids to fight.

The topic of discussion was ways in which President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder could work around a Supreme Court decision that decreed the formula for determining which states were covered by the 1965 Voting Rights Act was outdated.

Oh, yes, the horribly unfair barrier to voting that showing an ID would be. Why should people who want to take part in what is arguably the most precious right we have - that of choosing our leaders - have to -gasp - prove they are who they say they are - how unreasonable. I mean, it isn't as though people have to show ID to cash a check or buy alcohol.....oh, wait. And it isn't as though states with ID requirements will supply ID for free......oh, wait.

But isn't it comforting to know that our Justice Department is doing its best to protect the rights of all Americans to vote by taking down barriers and preventing any voter intimidation like that witnessed in Philadelphia when New Black Panther members stood in the entrance to a polling station wearing paramilitary garb and brandishing a nightstick.

Finally an honest Right Winger announces what she consider a "Fair" tax code.

DREW ANGERER FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES
By JONATHAN WEISMAN
Last Updated: 7:33 PM ET

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J.—

Debbie Schaeffer, the owner of Mrs. G TV and Appliances, probably did not give the answer the two chairmen of Congress’s powerful tax-writing committees were looking for when they pressed her this week for ideas on a fairer, simpler tax code:

“Get rid of the deductions that don’t affect me,” she said.

"Get rid of the deductions that don’t affect me,” she said.

"Get rid of the deductions that don’t affect me,” she said.

Thank God, and honest Right Wing American, who publicly admits what Normal Americans have known all along:

"It's all about me."

And they wonder why we can't trust them with power.

You are an eternal optimist.

Expecting a Right Winger to understand complex issues or matters is like expecting a pig to play Handel's "Messiah" on the piano - even if they had the intellectual skills the absence of opposable thumbs is just too much to overcome.

What's their fixation on aberrant sexual conduct anyway ?

With,
Larry Craig's "wide stance";
Sanford's Pretend Appalachian Trial hike,
Gengrich's "my wife's cancer made me bang my mistress",
Vitter's "Hookers are my thing",
Ensign's "mind if I do your wife - I'll pay $100K for her", and
Limbaugh's "give me drugs, Viagra, and some black hookers",

Please

At least pretend to get real.

Even the Republican State Chairmen have admitted there isn't any legitimate problem with illegal voters.

Even the Republican State Chairmen have admitted they want more ID laws, less voting precincts, shorter voting hours, and fewer voting days,
to keep poor and minority voters from voting.

For God's sake, they brag about it.

And here you are helping them.

Hopefully, the harder Right Wingers try to defeat democracy in America, the harder people will work to get to vote.

Hey... Maybe China will send troops to America to bring democracy to us, God knows Right Wingers hate democracy here.

Hmmm, Mary Kay Letourneau was 34 and Vili Fualaau was 12 (pedophilia generally is given a 13 year old cut off) when they began a sexual relationship. She taught him when he was in second grade and sixth grade.(even writing that makes me nauseated) So where would she fit on your scale - and what difference does it make anyway?
Do you see some moral difference between pedophilia and child molestation - I (and I can probably speak for others on here) are still trying to understand what your point was in bringing up the "older woman, younger boy" scenario in a discussion regarding pedophilia and the attempt to
"destigmatize" pedophilia and change the DSM regarding it. You then harangue someone for not seeing the "nuance" - perhaps you should look up the definition.

Nope, never said "young boys", but let's look at what I did say...

Riddle me this,
why is it a source of pride for a young male to learn the ropes from an older woman, when that older woman is nothing more than a child molester.

Now, I wonder what age group of young males would consider it a source of pride to have been with an older woman, would a 15 year old male who had consensual sex with 17-18 year old female.

Oh wait, but the law says that a 15 year old can't give consent, so it becomes rape and a matter of child molestation.

Let's look for equivalency here:
You, without any evidence to support such libel, accuse me of referring to those I disagree with as
"jew-lovers, ni$$er-lovers, queers or child molesters" and state that my "anti-homosexual stance is well known, the sites you reference and articles you cite are clear in their goal of portraying some vast homosexual agenda" .

I snickered at someone referring to you as a "nubbin head"

And you say the Right Wing has a problem with "nuance"?
