The Lone Star Jobs Surge
Gosh, Spoogebreath, is this job surge like that decrease in population in California you told us about three days ago? When the population went from 32 million to 38 million?

Still waiting for that proof of the Obama tax on saving banks.

You have some mecos on your chin, Jose.

The Lone Star Jobs Surge
Richard Fisher, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, dropped by our offices this week and relayed a remarkable fact: Some 37% of all net new American jobs since the recovery began were created in Texas. Mr. Fisher's study is a lesson in what works in economic policy—and it is worth pondering in the current 1.8% growth moment.
Using Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, Dallas Fed economists looked at state-by-state employment changes since June 2009, when the recession ended. Texas added 265,300 net jobs, out of the 722,200 nationwide, and by far outpaced every other state.

Poor moron - won't fess up to the fact his state created all LOW WAGE or minimum wage jobs - too bad you don't put ALL the facts up - I'll help you out - AGAIN!

"Texas, however, still faces many challenges on the jobs front. Many of the positions that have been created are on the lower end of the pay scale. Some 550,000 workers last year were paid at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25, more than double the number making those wages in 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That's 9.5% of Texas' hourly workforce, which gives it the highest percentage of minimum-wage hourly workers in the nation -- a dubious title it shares with Mississippi."

Liberals want to force Christians to be tolerant to gays while those Liberals themselves do not tolerate Christians.

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

<quoted text>Free money for Democrats? nope. How about food for starving children, how about social security, repaying those who have paid in for decades and had everything stolen by the filthy republicans.

As far as your statistics go, how about we simply stop giving more to red states than they pay in, and stop taking from blue states more than they get back. The red states would crash and burn within one year of not having the government largess.

Texas creating 48% of all new jobs???? LOL, like anyone would believe that baloney. I don't care what the democrats say, the republicans lie.
When a Liberal pulls the "starving children in America" card, you know he is loosing the argument!

I love it when you ask for proof that Obama will take 10% of yore savings! That's great!

It shows that you think that is wrong, unethical and theft.

Which are Conservative values!

Your insistence that Obama will never attempt to do that under a "fair distribution" plan shows that you have some Conservative values inside you and you naturally understand that taking other people's money is wrong!

I am turning you into a Conservative!

I am showing you how evil Liberalism is!

Now let me add a twist to my claim;

The 10% of savings Obama is after, is not from bank savings, yet, but from RETIREMENT savings, retirement accounts, 401K.

Which is WORST because that is your retirement nest!

Not is fast, Liberal!

Just when you thought the impossible - that a Liberal is right, then reality strikes!

See? If you make $50,000 but loose $20,000 to state, county, school, sales, taxes, your REAL income is only $30,000.

Easy math: 50k - 20k = 30k

But in Texas when you make $50,000 and pay NO state taxes, NO city taxes, NO school taxes, NO sales taxes, NO ... Etc, etc, etc.

THEN you simply keep the WHOLE $50k

Easy math: 50k - 0k = 50k

See how it works?

I was offered a job in California for $95,000 year as a Java Software developer. I declined the offer because I KNEW that $95,000 in Ohio was more than $95,000 in California!

See? Liberals look at the salary number but totally ignore THE COST OF LIVING!!!

In my home country Puerto Rico, people make LESS THAT MINIMUM WAGES and live as rich people!

I have friends that make $21/hr and are super rich with that because the COST OF LIVING, is very low!

I have relative that make LESS than minimum wages and live COMFORTABLY.

See? People are not leaving Texas, as they do in California, on those low wages, WHY?

Because the COST OF LIVING my Liberal friend, the cost of living!

Just when you thought you won the argument!!!

NONE believes you, Jose.

You are a m/f c/s liar.

Why not just tell us you were offered $500,000?

Your no-tax TEXAS is a lie, was a lie the first time you suggested it, and is a lie every time you repeat it.

YOU ARE A M/F C/S liar, Jose.

Texas has one of the highest sales tax and property tax, and it doesn't have an income tax because the rest of America supports it because the tax on oil revenue.

PS: Texas combined tax ranking is 8.14% and is ranked 11th (1 is highest). California is 8.13% and is ranked 12th, a difference of 0.01 percent.

STILL WAITING: where is that confiscation of the savings accounts like you said?
