Yes, I can but I can't find a republican who would give 4 times the pay! Remember Mitt likes to be able to fire who he wants to! Most republicans been overseas running sweatshops so long, they still think (Who Let The Dogs Out) is in the top 40s!

Black people with their own eyes can see a black man as POTUS.

Mr. Obama went to college on the taxpayer, and is proof that if the person accepts the challenge it can be reached.

this great lesson is being wasted and spun somehow as inequality and racist.

We need to teach every child including the green ones a work ethic, self pride, and skills they can be self sufficient with.

We need to nurture those skills so when we are gone those we taught become the teacher.

The more successful people in the USA the better. We all need to step it up, or we are going to be stepped on.

Uh, but isn't the labor of the people you describe worth more than the labor of the people overseas that you say companies should use with their mouse click?

Well, first let me thank you, even our government has not given me a response like this! I'm sorry I would rather not list my skills on this type forum, let's just say I hold two state license cards that are hard to get. I just can't travel around the state thou for 15$ per hour. Ptown is home & I just can't leave, my family is here! I was in Columbus yesterday & the construction in that town is unbelievable, could we have about 1/10 of that here! Thanks & lol

Did anyone watch Bill O'Reilly interview the Great Obama?

Boy did the Great Obama ever put Bill O'Reilly in his place as he told O'Reilly where to stick it and his Fox Network.

Plus didn't he give us the answers so many wanted to know.

you watched a different interview than I.

Obama is blaming everyone he can for his failures as a leader, and you call that a strong Democrat?

O'Reilly was professional and did not push Obama, and just let him expose his proposed dictatorship.

you missed a lot of things in life, so it is no surprise you missed the dodge on Obama's words....transformation of America.

His tone is that of a Dictator, not a uniter like he says he is.

And people almost as stupid as you are have been tired of being lied to and see the mistake they made at face value..........empty suit and snake oil salesman.

AP vs Reuters?

1/31/2014

(Reuters)- U.S. consumer spending rose in December, but an ebb in consumer confidence and signs of cooling in factory activity this month suggested economic growth could moderate in the first quarter.

The Commerce Department said on Friday that consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, increased 0.4 percent after advancing 0.6 percent in November.

Last month's rise beat economists' expectations for a 0.2 percent gain.

While December's increase provided a firmer base for first-quarter spending, weak income growth could erode momentum. Income was flat after rising 0.2 percent in November.

"The inability of income growth to keep pace with the increase in consumer expenditure places the sustainability of recent expenditure-driven economic growth into question," said Gennadiy Goldberg, an economist at TD Securities in New York.

"In fact, stagnant income growth and dwindling savings could lead consumers to moderate some of their spending plans in the months ahead, weighing on growth in early 2014."

I was trying to figure out why the AP's information wasn't lining up with the other articles released just several days later. Info on your source:

Following up on Friday's awful jobs report from the government (only 74,000 seasonally adjusted jobs added, with the unemployment rate dropping to 6.7 percent only because adults continued to leave the workforce), the Asssociated Press's Christopher Rugaber tried to search for excuses.

To its credit, the headline at Rugaber's report didn't blatantly dissemble like the one at Bloomberg, which, in revising the title of an underrated Stevie Wonder song from the 1970s ("Blame It on the Sun"), blamed it on the cold and snow: "Old Man Winter Put a Chill on U.S. Labor Market at End of 2013." But the AP reporter predictably failed to entertain the possibility that Obamacare's virtual chaos, plan cancellations, and impending 2014 premium hikes might have thrown a great deal of sand into the job market's gears, even though a virtual halt in healthcare hiring stuck out like a sore thumb. Excerpts follow the jump (bolds and numbered tags are mine):

Bill Clinton's True Legacy: Outsourcer-in-Chief

Talk about ironic -- especially since his speech takes place two days after Labor Day. I would say his legacy should be Worst President Ever, who, like "Teflon Ron" Reagan, was able to Photoshop his tarnished reputation. And the shame has nothing to do with Monica Lewinsky and everything to do with the fact that the biggest beneficiaries of his administration were Wall Street, Chinese factory owners and U.S. banks and the biggest losers were blue collar workers. Mitt Romney may have run a company that outsourced jobs but Clinton ran a country that did.

Progressives who justifiably condemn the repeal of the Glass-Steagall law that resulted in deregulating banks have Clinton to blame. According to the findings of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Committee, "The decision in 2000 to shield the exotic financial instruments known as over-the-counter derivatives from regulation, made during the last year of President Bill Clinton's term, is called 'a key turning point' in the march towards the financial crisis."

But the only thing worse than being a taxpayer forced to bail out reckless banks is losing your job because it's been outsourced or offshored. As Richard McCormack pointed out in the American Prospect, in the beginning of this century American companies stopped making the products Americans continued to buy, from clothing to computers. Manufacturers never emerged from the 2001 recession, which coincided with China's entry into the World Trade Organization. Between 2001 and 2009 the U.S. lost 42,400 factories and manufacturing employment dropped to 11.7 million, a loss of 32 percent of all manufacturing jobs. The last time fewer than 12 million people worked in the manufacturing sector was in 1941.

Clinton had the gall to accuse those who opposed China's entry into the WTO of "aligning themselves with the Chinese army and hard-liners in Beijing who do not want accession for China." Clinton claimed that the agreement that he championed "creates a win-win result for both countries," arguing that exports to China "now support hundreds of thousands of American jobs" and "these figures can grow substantially." (Clinton's press person at the Clinton Global Initiative did not respond to my requests for feedback.)

The facts contradict these assertions. Imports of computers and electronic parts accounted for almost half of the $178 billion increase in the U.S. trade deficit with China between 2001 and 2007 and the loss of 2.3 million jobs, according to the Economic Policy Institute.

Clinton then went on to enact NAFTA, or the North America Free Trade Act, which as American Prospect editor Robert Kuttner has observed, "was less about trade and more about making it easier for U.S. based multinationals and banks to take over Mexican companies."

Washington (AP) 5/15/2014

According to CBO, America cannot afford another Republican President. Traditionally most Americans have been led to believe America is better off under Republicans. According to a newly released data from the CBO, this isn't true. The Republicans are the reason America has a record debt. It all began when Ronald Reagan was the first President to rack up more debt than all previous President's combined. That included FDR President during WW II and Eisenhower of the Korean War.
