The increased unemployment is actually a GOOD sign. How that possible?

Economics 101.

Previously, lots of people were not in the labor force and simply stopped looking for work and they were no longer captured by unemployment numbers (accordingly, unemployment numbers can actually decrease during a recession), but as the economy improves, these individuals are now actively seeking work again and captured by unemployment data. Ergo, unemployment numbers can actually increase at the beginning of a economic recovery. This phenomena is covered in your typical intro to macro econ class.
Still doubt that the Republican party is the anti-education party?

It's so much more honorable to let one's family suffer from hunger and/or malnutrition and burden American taxpayers with paying for the increase in treating the medical expenses of such individuals than for such individuals to simply ask for some assistance.

And it's assistance that they've already paid for with their tax dollars. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
Makes you wonder why Obama wants to add 11 million illegal aliens to the mix!

WH Adviser Valerie Jarrett: Unemployment Checks Actually ‘Good For’ & ‘Stimulate’ Economy

Try to wrap your head around this one (which is actually an old argument) from White House adviser Valerie Jarrett: according to her, unemployment checks — in some round about way — are actually “good for” and “stimulate” the economy:

NY Passes Toughest Gun Ban In Nation
http://www.therightperspective.org/2013/01/16...
New York became the first state in America to respond to last month’s tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut by passing the country’s strongest laws against gun ownership on Tuesday.
The state’s senate, which is controlled by a coalition of REPUBLICANS (emphasis added) and five breakaway Democrats, voted for the bill by a lopsided vote of 43 – 18 late Monday night.(cont.)
Of course I am.

There's no question about the requirement that a person needs to have a functional command of the English language to become a citizen.

I've said that several times now.

AL originally said that an immigrant had to be able to speak English before they were allowed to come here in the first place and she was wrong.

She also seems to think that most people go to a technical college to learn English.

She was wrong about that too.

I use Bill Clinton as an example of Republicans sticking their noses into peoples private sex lives to show the level of hypocrisy & voyeurism that's rampant in that party. It ironic part here is that I have a list of Republican politicians who also had marital infidelities and why no stink about those? Newt Gingrich had how many wives? Then he even admitted to an open relationship yet Republicans never considered holding sex hearings on him.

For a party to pride themselves on God, morals, values and everything peachy under the sun, they really do the complete opposite of the morals & values they try to force other to adhere to.

You seem to have a serious misconception about both why a person would attend a "technical" college and the requirements to legally immigrate to the United States.
As far as immigration, unless I'm mistaken, there is no requirement that an immigrant be able to speak English before they come here, only that they have a functional command of the language when they actually apply for citizenship.
If I'm wrong could you show me a link to a source that says different?
That's the problem with "American Lady" & ilk like her. They'll post a little truth and mix allot of lies and think they can slip it past "we the people".

LOL!!

It's just like when they pull their, if you come to the USA, speak English then point at the naturalized citizen requirements while conveniently ignoring the fact that when an immigrant enters lawfully under any kind of visa their is no law requiring them to speak English.

Yet they insist they do and the ironic part is that they want these people to speak English yet they're so bigoted, they'd never talk to these people in the first place.

And we all know that if they're not b*tching about them not speaking English... it'll be about something else.

Help me out here, folks. I am confused with some liberal thinking, on one side they think football is too dangerous, violent, whatever, and Obamam wouldn't want a son, if he had one, to play. Then, in another breath, we are now going to allow women to fight in the front lines...couldn', no, shouldn't we consider that to be dangerous and a violent circumstance for them? Why is one okay, and the other is not? Do these people even know what they really want??? Would Obama feel comfortable with his daughters going to war?
There are some several aspects to consider with these two issues.

In playing football, we are initially talking about young people, young brains, still forming and at highly susceptible to the high incident of brain injury in a collision sport like football. The science on football in recent years has determined that players are experiencing far more incidents of damage than previously recorded.

First off, in the case of females participating in combat situations, we are talking about adults engaging in the service to their country. Yes it's dangerous, but it's not a game and in my opinion, the higher risk is for a higher purpose. While the physical curve still exists between a male and a female it is not the equivalent to competitive football.

Football is a sport that relies heavily and constantly on speed and power that would put most females at an immediate physical disadvantage.

While in combat, there is always the potential for encountering situations where speed and power may be required, it involves a much wider range of skills and training with weapons and overall survival. It's not like in a football game where the entire emphasis is on speed and power where women would constantly be at a physical disadvantage.

Women with the proper training can be just as lethal as a man perfectly capable of defending themselves but in reality, there's little comparison between a football game and combat.

Requiring Gun Insurance Will Increase Safety
Insuring guns provides a means for financially compensating victims of unjustified gun violence — not only families who have lost loved ones, but also non-fatal shooting victims and those who are assaulted with guns.
Requiring gun-owner insurance as a form of gun safety regulation is not a radical change in social policy. It is common for our society to throw the risk on the owner of a potentially harmful commodity. Motor vehicles, for example, must be registered and insured in case their use harms humans or property; and the thrill of driving a high-performance car comes with a higher insurance premium.
States often have insurance requirements for the owners of motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, exotic wild animals — even pit bulls. Owners of establishments that sell alcohol, such as restaurants and bars, are often required to carry insurance for damages caused by intoxicated patrons.

Think about it..

1. Those perverted thoughts came from your brain
2. You think it's funny to make such implications
3. You are slandering and libeling two separate individuals
4. You are cowardly doing all this behind the guise of anonymity
5. You are likely one of the regular Conservatives regulars that post here under another name.
