The Jods created stats are fake numbers not real wake up unemployment is really around 21%.Obama failed our economy..Don't forget Sears is closing 122 stores big lot 44 Talbots and Gap to close 500 stores,and JC Penny is going broke how many jobs will be lost with these three.then American Arilines to lay off 13,000 workers.then Obama wants to let 16 million Illegal aleins get social security and vote they need to be sent home. yup the economy is doing so much better under Obama lol.Obama has added more debt in 3 years than all other presidents combined in history. Obama I say the guys a turd.Obama said "change America can believe in, " he didn't mean in a month or two! It has been 3 years since the Obama Change Machine has been in operation. Of course he did not say whether it would be good change or bad change! This is disastrous change that wrecked the economy. Let us not forget the stimulus bill that helped dig us into this economic mess and that failed also. Just Say no more and vote in anyone else but loser fibber Obama.The heck with the debate and bad news sit back and watch a free movie from Cheney. befor Obama puts a tax on free movies lol. http://youtu.be/0ppCMc0rjhY

So what sort of moron pays a sitter $10 per hour when they make $9?
Friends, neighbors, and relatives sit for free or nominal cost
Sometimes pay is "in-kind" (trade)
Trade sitting duties (example - daytime factory worker trades sitting duties with the nighttime bartender)?
Trade salable homemade goods?(Think flea market, not skin)
Trade skills for time?(example - guaranteed auto repair for guaranteed sitting)
Nothing illegal, just everything "off the books"
FURTHER, if someone is in this "boat", what of it? They were told, MANY times, that any "F-ups" would cost them, were they not? So now, they've "F'ed-up"?! How should that be ANYone else's problem? Yer neighbor "got their jolly's", didn't they? So why should YOU be required to pay? For something you didn't do, and don't necessarily agree with?
Assuming YOU don't smoke, would you agree to pay for your neighbors smoke? Of COURSE not! Especially if their smoke were going to cost you (daily) for the next 19 years.
How long has it been since you needed a babysitter? Your arrogance is not attractive. First you expect everybody to get a job to support themselves and their children, then you wonder why they don't work when childcare costs more than their salaries. And to suggest that someone is going to be responsible for a baby/toddler 10 hrs. a day and swap "services" is simply unrealistic. Besides that, where jobs are available, and family is nearby, the other family members are working too...that includes grandmothers.

there are a LOT of people out there with no one to help them, and neighbors aren't what they used to be.
maybe they didn't eff up, just a victim of circumstances beyond their control.
.
but screw them right?
Should they just "sick it up"?

YES!!!!!!!

Not because of my "moral standard", but because of their own biology!

They KNEW what the potential of THEIR OWN ACTIONS would result in.
Did they not?

SOooooo, why should THEIR activities, which I neither engaged in, nor enjoyed, be of ANY consequence to me? THEY put "Tab A" in "Slot B" - I didn't. THEY decided "this is well and fun" - I didn't. THEY engaged in their own activities, without my "by your leave". But now I(!?!?) need to pay for THEIR CHOICES? Ohhhh, bite me!!

======

BTW, "I" don't need to "screw 'em", they screwed themselves.
I'll help them where possible. I'll offer advice when wanted and appropriate. I'll give 'em baby/kids goods. I'll even babysit.

But I will NOT take full financial responsibility for THEIR Humpty Choices

======

Is there ANY parent that DOESN'T know how they got to (biologically) become a parent?
NO!!!

To assume anything else to to pretend such a moronic point of view as to be beyond senseless

I've been raising kids for almost 40 years
I've probably PAID for sitters less than a dozen times.
Is that arrogance?
Or experience?

bubby, if anyone CHOOSES to "do the deed" that results in children, why would they possibly expect other to PAY for their own enjoyment? That is so TOTALLY absurd!!

And just to mess with yer head,
the economy has NOTHING to do with it
When the economy is down, sitting costs are lower
When the economy is up, so is your pay, most likely (and if not, yer a screw up, most likely)

What else ya got?

Nobody has the power to fire the federal reserve chairman. No one in govt. can that is both the beauty and ugliness of the fed is that no one in govt. can tell the fed what to do.

Oh, if I could just educate you!

I'm raising TWO Kinship-care children - NOW
$162 per month, 24 per day - for BOTH children!
That's WHAT, 12˘ per hour?
But do I bitch?

WHAT could you POSSIBLY teach me, that I haven't run into before?

FYI, A baby mama - REQUIRES a baby DADDY
So where the "F" is Papa?
Deadbeat Mama screwed Deadbeat Dada?
And?!?!?
Why are they exempt from the same rules that apply to everyone else?

Why were either one allowed (other than biology) to procreate?

Personal example -
I DID take responsibility for my progeny and didn't try to pass it off to ANYone else. My kids (biological, or not) were MY responsibility, not Joe taxpayer's. You wanna have "fun"??? Fine! But, bite the bullet when ya get shot

No, if anything happened, this would not alter my (or anyone else's) income (by much).$162 per month should NEVER affect me. If anything, it has spurred me to create more. Moreover, this nominal sum has led me to teach the kids the kids to NOT depend on others to supply my (or their) needs. Instead, I've used this nominal amount to create several side businesses that take minimal time, but generate maximal income, and I've passed this onto the kids. They've learned to make an adequate (or even good) income from almost nothing.

And no, this is not the only scenario where someone needs assistance, but, because I need do not RELY on this income, it IS a way to teach the kids that their parent (and they, when they become parents) NEED to accept responsibility for their own actions. It also allows me to teach them that they need to rely on their own wiles, and not on "gifts from above". Gifts come and go, no matter WHAT has been agreed to on. It's also been a method to teach them to SAVE -- EVERY cent in child support now goes to savings for THEIR future, whether it's for education, home, or plain ole life - and the kids are involved in making sure that the savings goals are met (by making financial decisions, with help, for themselves). Not ONE cent goes for their day-to-day support. If we fall short a bit, we make it up one way or another, and the last day of the month (immediate goal) is attended to, meeting the longer-term goals. If it takes collecting and recycling aluminum cans, knitting goods for flea-market sales, repairing computers, or (a new line) installing used Satellite dishes and receivers for free-to-air signals (non-scrambled satellite TV without the monthly cost)- the kids are learning to rely on themselves, not others - EVER. And that independence is something NOT to take anger in, but to revel in - and to GIVE (cash, goods, time, and self) to those who need more. They're learning that happiness comes from the heart, not STUFF.

Bunny your head is full of fluff. I have provided figures and facts to base every one of my posts on and in reply you have one wasted line to call me ignorant. I'm sorry but the ignorance is all yours. I'm sure your just a mind of mush who believes the lies of the left. If you are young I do not pity you because it is your money that is being wasted today and will need to be paid back in the future. Your and your childrens future is being wasted away to allow entitlements and payoffs of policitcal contributors today. If you are too stupid to understand you deserve the debt you will be buried under by the Democrats and Obama. Stay ignorant, it looks good on you.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- U.S. taxpayers likely lost $1.3 billion in the government bailout of Chrysler, the Treasury Department announced Thursday.

The government recently sold its remaining 6% stake in the company to Italian automaker Fiat. It wrapped up the 2009 bailout that was part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program six years early.

LOL, this is a perfect example!
Typical Obama basher that takes facts, twists them to look BAD, and disregards any GOOD that has came of it:)
After reading ALL your posts, I'm sure Obama is going to be a shoe in. I LOVE IT!

...a one-time $1.3 billion subsidy to Chrysler that actually saves hundreds of thousands of jobs!

Wow, did you research the subject, get more involved and try to see the big picture?
Obviously not:)
The bailout is credited with saving at least 400,000 jobs, that's US taxpaying jobs, that alone saved BILLIONS in unemployme­­nt comp alone in the last 2 years.

You are crying about something that may not happen...only an opinion that it is "liely" to happen!

This shows me you are NOT caring about the facts, but actually care MORE about finding something "bad" about Obama:) Why not find something REALLY bad, instead of what may "likely" happen? Where are the facts? AND...please explain, how did we lose 1.3 billion exactly?
