I don't know how many mothers are in the Chicago ghettos, but I know the mother, and aunt of that 3 year old shot in the face last Thursday night were both so drugged up they could barely put a sentence together. Chicago is not Florida. And that child should be taken away from that woman until she tests clean before she gets him killed. It was on local T V Friday night that that child's Uncle died in a drive by over Labor Day Week end. nice family.

No one is going to keep track of what you don't know.

It would be easier to keep track of things that you have said that are true.

I have a pencil out and waiting to make that first mark.

The wide range is based on different assumptions of the returns of pension fund investments, which provide the bulk of money for benefit payments. Conservative economists say the investments will have annual returns of around 4 percent, while many funds expect returns in line with the average of the last 20 years -- closer to 8 percent.

Using the higher pension gap number, State Budget Solutions said California is in the biggest financial hole -- with total debt of more than $612 billion. New York follows with $305 billion of debt, and then Texas, with total debt of $283 billion. Vermont has the lowest amount of total debt at just over $6 billion.

The group also looked at the financial shape of states using the Pew pension projections. It came up with a total debt of $2 trillion for all states.

California still owes the most under the alternative computation, but the state's total debt drops significantly, to $307 billion. With the Pew numbers, New Jersey follows with $183 billion of debt and Illinois is next at $150 billion.

According to the analysis, California has also borrowed the most from the federal government to pay for unemployment benefits,$8.6 billion. Michigan was next, taking out $3.1 billion, and then New York, borrowing $2.9 billion.

Companies are moving their employees to 28hrs a week or less, in order to not have to pay a fine when Obama care is implemented. The unions are calling bullshit now, because they understand they backed the wrong side of the fight, now. We are going to destroy the cornerstone of what made this country exceptional- the American work ethic. The 40 hour work week is going the way of the dodo bird. Welcome to the European model 32 hours a week, 100% of the population receiving some type of government assistance and 8 weeks of paid vacation a year. No wonder, nothing gets done in Europe without a strike, a fight, or a parliament getting dissolved.
And its funny- as we turn hard left, Europe, after 70 years, is making a hard turn right, cutting taxes, turning away from green energy, etc.

I want welfare and food stamps gone and done. But without good paying jobs for people to go to it would be real bad. I mean there is 40-60 million people on welfare and foodstamps. You just cut them off many many millions will turn to crime. The cost of fighting that crime and putting them in prison will cost us twice what welfare and food stamps does now.

It is like this. If you have a car and know it needs oil. But think oil is to costly so you drive without it. When your motor shells out you will find out what costly is,.

The difference is that Christian ideology was not propelling the nazis.

Surely you knew that or are you in denial as well?

Obamacare is horrible that is for sure. We need the EPA and it should be stronger with more teeth. Problem is FREE trade. That ahs to end. We need FAIR trade. If we had that our economy would be booming. And wages would go up for workers.
