Well tell "Mr. They" that maybe it's because the left won't respond directly or with much detail to our comments, concerns and questions regarding this administrations actions, policies and end results.
Maybe instead of calling our comments "whiney" and "paranoid" and telling us it must be Fox News or Faux News{the overly used nickname which stopped being amusing ---> years ago but still gives fuel to your your Obama propaganda machine} that must be polluting our ability to think, you might actually stop playing dodge ball and get to the meat of some of these topics.
I have thrown a number of issues out for discussion and get nothing much back.
Here, address this one.
In the internal email, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official Charles Brown said he asked if he could try to spread out the sequester cuts in his region to minimize the impact, and he said he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of.
“We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be,” Mr. Brown, in the internal email, said his superiors told him.

Perhaps the old story fits Catcher the best (Lyndi's a good ant) and I was reading his junk at the same time, but you are so cavalier, you could easily be a grasshopper. "No big deal, it's happened before, that's not what is going on" etc. It's all fiddling. I didn't see Rove's meltdown but even so I can understand it. Something happened that I think we will look at years from now with surprise. The Republicans did look like they'd win, then Obama cried and the polls were open and someday we'll have the rest of the story. Obama really is the worst thing to happen to this country and no it sure isn't because he's black it's because he's a very poor candidate for president, but along with that a very scary idealogue. All I can hope for right now is someone to come along and undo some of the damage
I can understand Rove being shocked and disappointed in the election results, but if he's half the political operative he's been given credit for (and he is) there's no way he could be shocked or surprised that the networks, including Fox, called a state (Ohio, I think) based on the data they had.

As to the rest - if by cavalier you mean I don't share your paranoia about Obama any more than I shared the paranoia about the guy before him, I plead guilty.

I think ETC called me an ostrich rather than an ant, though.

Oh okay. I was hearing "hunky dory" My bad. if I think things are kind of bad it must be because I'm watching nieces and nephews returning home to their parents because they can't make it on their own (at ages 30-35) I'm seeing friends and family jobless. It must just be in my little corner.

By many indicators, the economy is improving. That is a fact. Has it "trickled down" yet to the middle-class? Well, according to supply-side economic theory, which is still the Republicans primary fiscal plank, big things should be happening.

Here again, as in the "less taxes equal more revenue" meme, we are out of philosophical abstracts and into reality. Jobs should be trickling down. So, where's the beef?

trickling down from where? the theory of trickle-down economics comes from the idea that if industry is doing well then jobs and increased salaries result.(which btw has worked for a long time) industry (in the form of small businesses and corporations) can't get better because they are meeting new expenses that have nothing to do with jobs or expansion. Some corporations are only doing okay because Obama has bolstered them up but they are beginning to fail again. I know, I know the stockmarket is doing well. Do you know how little the stockmarket has to do with jobs and the well-being of mainstream America?

AP story, today:

WASHINGTON (AP)— The American job market isn't just growing. It's accelerating.

Employers added 236,000 jobs in February and drove down the unemployment rate to 7.7 percent, its lowest level in more than four years. The gains signal that companies are confident enough in the economy to intensify hiring even in the face of tax increases and government spending cuts.

Last month capped a fourth-month hiring spree in which employers have added an average of 205,000 jobs a month. The hiring has been fueled by steady improvement in housing, auto sales, manufacturing and corporate profits, along with record-low borrowing rates.

Wage Recession Hits 5 Years; Worse Than Jobs Drought
Wed, Feb 27 2013
Investor's Business Daily

As bad as the current job recovery has been — and it's by far the weakest since World War II — the recovery in wages has been far worse.

Five years after the recession began in December 2007, total wages in the economy have yet to fully recover in real terms, Commerce Department data show. In other words, the wage recession continues.

By comparison, the longest previous post-war wage recession, which began with the 2001 downturn, was over in 2-1/2 years, even though that jobs recession lasted four years.

In recoveries past, wage recessions have ended long before payrolls hit new highs. But in the current expansion, wages and employment are on the same slow track to recovery. Both remain about 2% below their old peaks.

Sixty months after the start of the 2001 recession, where we are now in the current cycle, wages were already nearly 8% above their prior peak, though payrolls were just 2% higher. A similar recovery would have boosted current wages by about $650 billion annually.

The early 1980s, marked by high inflation, saw real wages recover from one recession only to fall again before staging a more durable rebound. But the current wage recession has outlasted even that era of real wage stagnation.

The simplest explanation as to why wages have been so sluggish in this recovery is that the depth of job losses eroded employee bargaining power more than usual.

While it may not be true in all industries and specializations, the broad oversupply of labor means that workers have tended to feel fortunate to have a steady job, even without the gravy of pay hikes that outstrip inflation.

Another factor has been the underlying job shift since the end of 2007, with the bulk of the lingering losses in industries that tend to pay pretty well.

Compared to five years ago, there are 3.5 million fewer construction and manufacturing jobs and 1 million fewer jobs in financial services and government.

"Job quality is rapidly emerging as a second front in the struggling recovery," the National Employment Law Project, a low-wage worker advocacy group, concluded in a study in August. NELP found that lower-wage occupations accounted for 21% of the recession's job losses but 58% of the recovery's job gains.

The Secret History of the American Empire
by John Perkins, p6 (the Economic hitman)

[The American empire] is ruled by a group of people who collectively act very much like a king. They run our largest corporations and, through them, our government. They cycle through the "revolving door" back and forth between business and government. Because they fund political campaigns and the media, they control elected officials and the information we receive. These men and women (the corporatocracy are in charge regardless of whether Republicans or Democrats control the White House or Congress. They are not subject to the people's will and their terms are not limited by law.
