U.S. job losses worst since 1974 as recession bites
Dec 5, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/5lcvoq
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- U.S. employers axed payrolls by 533,000 jobs in November, the most in 34 years and far more than expected, government data on Friday showed, as the year-old recession hammered every corner of the U.S. economy.
Oil prices and the dollar weakened and U.S. Treasury bond prices rallied on the news that confirms the recession was now hitting activity across the board.
"You can't get much uglier than this. The economy has just collapsed, and has gone into a free fall," said Richard Yamarone, chief economist at Argus Research in New York.
The Labor Department said the unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent last month to the highest reading since 1993, compared with 6.5 percent in October.

Just not complete! How much has the National Debt gone up since Obama has been in office? And the sad part is, he has 3 more years to add to the debt. Just him campaigning for the Dems next year will probably add a trillion more dollars to the national debt, and that will be to California for the umpteenth time.

Obama has proven beyond all and any doubt that he is a Wall Street corporate hack president just like Reagan, the Bush's and the Clinton's.

President in 2016 will be another Wall Street hack, Hillary Corporate Clinton vs Jeb Corporate Bush.

Hillary Clinton & Rupert Murdoch
By Jeff Cohen 10 May 2006 / http://tinyurl.com/yo9y6d
Excuse me for not getting fired up when I hear Democratic leaders bleating about the "culture of corruption" in Washington under GOP rule. Sometimes I have to laugh ... and not because the charges against the Republicans aren't true. They're totally true.
It's just that top Democrats are up to their eyeballs in that same culture of corruption - which may be why they seem blind to how activists see them. Take my New York senator, Hillary Clinton. The Financial Times just reported that she and her re-election campaign have lined up right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch to host a Hillary fundraiser in July.

Murdoch is the symbol of media conglomeration and the owner of Republican mouthpieces like Fox News, Weekly Standard and the New York Post. He and Hillary have lately conducted a public courtship. Last month, Hillary attended the 10th anniversary party for Fox News in Washington, where the presidential contender schmoozed Murdoch and Fox chair Roger Ailes. According to the Financial Times, Bill Clinton will address the summer conference of Murdoch's media colossus, News Corp.

It's actually quite fitting that President Clinton address News Corp, since he helped build that conglomerate - through his Telecommunications "Reform" Act of 1996, a corrupt measure largely drafted by lobbyists for the media industry as they lavished campaign cash on politicians of both parties. The law loosened regulations constraining News Corp's growth and raised caps on how many TV stations Murdoch and others could own. Murdoch immediately bought up new stations. Clear Channel expanded from 40 radio stations to 1,200; right-wing Sinclair Broadcasting expanded from 11 TV stations to 60.

Many non Christian people DID NOT take those VOWS serious enough.
There ARE "certain"
circumstances where divorce should be granted ..
Like mental, moral and/or emotional-physical abuse.
Other than that ... you TOOK the VOW before God and should live with the decision you made.

IT IS NOW TOLERATED TOO MUCH ...
just like "queerdom" ...
imho ...
Too much TOLERANCE "is" a sin in itself!
The Sin of Tolerance
By Billy Graham
Tolerance Can Become Too Stretched
One of the pet words of this age is tolerance. It is a good word, but we have tried to stretch it over too great an area. We have applied it, too often, where it does not belong. The word tolerant means liberal and broad-minded. In one sense, it implies the compromise of one’s convictions, a yielding of ground upon important issues.
We have become tolerant about divorce, the use of alcohol, delinquency, wickedness in high places, immorality, crime and godlessness. We have been sapped of conviction, drained of our beliefs, and we are bereft of our faith.
The sciences, however, are narrow-minded. There is no room for careless broad-mindedness in the laboratory. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit at sea level; it is never 100 degrees nor 189 degrees, nor 211. Fresh water freezes at 32 degrees; it is never 23 degrees nor 31.

Also:
WHEN TOLERANCE IS SIN
by William MacDonald
Tolerance can be a virtue, but it can also betray an inexcusable weakness of character. We admire the person who tolerates differences where no great issue is at stake. He allows for a variety of preferences, methods, and unimportant viewpoints. He would rather be killed for a sheep than for a lamb.
But there is another form of tolerance that is despicable. That is the willingness to remain silent when God's name is blasphemed or Christ is dishonored. It is the treachery of silence when truth is on the scaffold. It is the unwillingness to speak out against evil. Tolerance that condones deceit and unrighteousness is sin.
Those who think that Jesus was always tolerant should read Matthew 23, a denunciation of hypocrisy. This passage proves forever that our Lord was capable of scathing indignation at the pretense of religious leaders. Or they should read Revelation 2:20, where he condemned the Church in Thyatira for tolerating a woman teacher named Jezebel.
Paul, too, was intolerant of evil. He even mentioned names, something that is considered unacceptable in evangelical circles today. He delivered Hymenaeus and Alexander to Satan, that they might learn not to blaspheme (1 Timothy 1:20). He didn't hesitate to single out Hymenaeus and Philetus as false teachers (2 Timothy 2:17). And he denounced Alexander the coppersmith by name for his evil behavior (2 Timothy 4:14).

Two unfunded wars that were never paid for by Bush along with tax cuts that were were supposed to pay for themselves over the long run {whatever that meant}. Moreover, Bush gave momentum to the bailouts in his lame duck session also.

Jackazz. As usual, you have to lie and stretch the truth to prove your point. I never said that I blamed Obama "for it all", dumbshyte. Every president prior to Obama has added to the national debt but not a single on them doubled the debt during their term in office. The fault lies both with Demoncraps and Republidums but, as I point out and will again, Obama has DOUBLED the national debt in just 5 years in office. And, in the next 3 years under this jackazz, it's going to go much higher. Nothing Obama has done in the last 5 years was designed to pay down the debt. COMPRENDE, FERSTEHENSIE, UNDERSTAND now, idiot.

Look in the mirror if you really want to see why this country is in so much trouble.
