Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Wow Jax, I just "yawned" too. If you'd like to go further back than the 5 Barack Obama years, go back to 1954 and take it all the way to 1994. That's how long democrats controlled the House.

But what happens when democrats controlled House, Senate, and President? The democrats took over the healthcare system in the dead of night without a single republican vote. They forced a shovel-ready stymie-less through, they flushed billions and billions with companies like Solyndra, lots of companies like Solyndra. Solyndra is just the poster-crony-loser.

America still has less people working now than before O', and far less of a percentage of them. 50% of young blacks are unemployed. Debt has doubled. People who had full-time jobs, now have part time jobs if they work at all, and for the first time in history, more business are closing than opening.

Yawn yourself and see if you can get some oxygen to your brain, and ask poor people how they like spending $100.00 to fill their gas

RS: "Are the numbers inconvenient truths for you"

I see we are going to have to remind you of Bush's numbers. One million jobs created in 8 years. Unemployment rose from 4.3% to 7.9%. Surpluses turned into deficits. Dow crashed. Housing crashed. Auto industry crashed. 3000 Americans died in a terrorist attack. 4000 Americans died in an unnecessary war.

How inconvenient.

I love comments about what Romney would or would not have done as president, when we couldn't tell from Monday to Tuesday what Flippy the Flipper's position was on anything.

RS: "Last quarter the economy shrank by 2.9%"

We explained that to you. The markets yawned, the economists yawned, the world yawed, the markets yawned. Hand onto it RS, it is your Birther Moment of 2014.

I see Free has visited the bumper sticker store again, has them all memorized.

When both types of sense illuminate an issue, it isn't difficult to agree with it. I and probably you too, hear a non-audible, albeit noticeable click, and the click tells us it's right, and that it fits. Click.

Here's two articles. One by John Stossel written 4 days ago, and one by Mark Steyn marked with tomorrow's date on it.

You can read the articles at PolitiBrew(dotcom)

We strain with enthusiastic, organized, applied effort. But it's not so much a collective organization, but an individualistic one. One where the varied parts pull in the same direction, towards what we know works...that which history has shown us works.

Oh, some of us occasionally allow ourselves to ski behind the tow line, jump a ramp, and do a flip or two, but usually we tow against the line in the opposite direction from the one the establishment line pulls us towards. Sometimes we pull the other side right into the mud with our efforts, and they stand up, mucky from wingtip to windsor, with many a face splatter too. Eric Cantor got pulled in the mud by our line towing efforts. Thad Cochran jumped into the mud willingly with robust pushes from his side of the line.

That John Stossel calls himself a Libertarian doesn't bother me one whit. That Mark Steyn is from Canada does not bother me either, as I can recognize common as well as uncommon sense, and so can you.

7-6-14 2:26 EST: John Stossel and Mark Steyn are two of several people I have a difficult time disagreeing with, though not due to lack of effort on my part. Like many of you, I don't tow the party line as you so often see from the left, and neither do these two. On the left it's pitifully plain the rank and file, much of it's elite too, do not tow that lefty line either, as the line is far too busy towing them.

You rarely see them wearing metaphoric cleats, rugged work boots or tough gloves in attempts to stem the dragging pull of that line. What they appear to do, and it's a vivid appearance, is take off all shoes leaving nothing but dry slippery socks against a highly waxed floor, thus taking very little effort on the part of the line to tow them. They need latch on ever so slightly with a naked hand or two as they go skiing along the slippery, forgiving, formica.

We on the other rugged individualistic hand, resist when that line tries to tow us in one direction.

Right after the horses went by, I saw a grapefruit sized piece of Aimass roll pretty as you please right into a storm drain.

A not so miraculous hole in one :-)

Normantra, who admittedly has no knowledge of economics, nevertheless proclaims that I have no knowledge of it either. He derives that sweeping pronouncement from his vacant storehouse of no knowledge.

I think his rotten fruit (melon) is beginning to ferment.

What a great parade yesterday! No clowns in it either, just one lurking on the sidelines ready and willing to toss his 151 proof neck-mounted piñata at the Tea Party Float :-)

Wow! Ronnie Rayguns was even worse than I thought. What a useless B movie actor. I see the clergy are fighting in the news and Petella is with one of them crazy fundie businesses. That is really scary for Northern Michigan women. While christianity falls apart before our very eyes all NotFreeman can talk about is money.

The defense of the indefensible is a hobby of the ignorant and uninformed. Robert Reich? Please cite the source of his opinion that you are basing your comment on normanlake.

Freeman

Cheap money is invested in the markets when there is no coherent policy that offers business the confidence to invest in growth.

Of course you divert and attempt to distract. Romney would not be happy with the state of this economy for many reasons. First, the workforce is shrinking. Second, the economy is shrinking. Third, the middle class is being punished by flawed legislation, (ACA), and infantile regulation. Fourth, the country has become a laughing stock among the nations of the world. Should I go on? Again, jaxspp, you just don't pay attention. Ignoring the DOW, REALLY??!!

In the U.S. as both Freeman and I have already indicated, many times before, we need 300K jobs per month just to keep up with those ENTERING their working years, dupe.

Do you not understand the difference between those entering versus those exiting?

Last quarter the economy shrank by 2.9% Where's your Borg spin on that?

The numbers are the numbers. 16 year olds haven't exited the workforce because of aging. Neither have 26, 36, 46, or 56 year olds.

Are the numbers inconvenient truths for you, or rather sound, hard fact rebuttals to your lying propaganda?

Obama and the entire democrat party want to take this country down several notches, and have, for some nefarious reason. What is that reason?

Here is a good response to both you other lefty fools that Hobby Lobby invests in companies that make abortifacients:

"401k plans do not invest in company stock, they invest in mutual funds, and the options for those funds are primarily selected by 401k administrators, not Hobby Lobby.

Crucially, it’s the employees themselves who decide which mutual funds to invest in, and those mutual funds then invest in hundreds or thousands of different stocks. The employees don’t have the power to select individual companies, and Hobby Lobby especially does not have that power.

The point is, this smear attempt is obviously fallacious to anyone who has even a passing understanding of mutual funds and 401k plans." (Matt Walsh)

I've been thinking if something happened to my job I would just head for the NC mountains even though I'm not retirement age. Republicans would go "See? See? He left the job market!"
