    Then prove to me that Discouraged Workers include any of those baby boomers getting ready to retire? What stock market losses? Obama has saved us all. Why would anyone be discouraged with our "Hope and Change" President?

The thing that keeps NC below TX is the economy is pretty bad, which is most likely what is affecting its cost of living. Much of the issue with NC is that the small town areas had job markets mostly centered around textiles, which have been steadily moving to places like Latin America and Asia for the low-wage workers. However, NC ranks better than TX for business friendliness and cost of business.

    Would be happy to when you show me the labor force growth in those states. Isn't California a border state? Didn't it go from 11.8 to 12% in June to July? Arizona from 9.3 to 9.4? Congratulations to New Mexico 6.8 to 6.7.

    Let's see, 12% and 9.4% are lower than 8.4%????

    So you think the growth in the labor force in TX is due to the military? Interesting how demonization of TX is the new tactic for the left. Slightly conservative? What does that mean, conservative on what issues if not taxes, freedoms, personal responsibilties?

    Equity markets are at (or near) the price levels in 2000.

    You know, i bet in real life you are a pretty good guy. It is a shame that you allowed a democrat in the white house to get the best of you.....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 38% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.
    Again, I didn't vote for Obama. I didn't see him as the best candidate.

    I compare the two, Obama and Perry, though, and I see the worse candidate being Perry, not Obama. I base it off of what both have and/or have not done in their time in office and on what they plan to do. Perry has extreme plans and no record of actually doing anything to significantly improve the TX economy. He is more than willing to assume that trickle-down economics actually works and dismiss scientific information in other areas to help his campaign donors.

    Some of those “displaced” workers may become “discouraged” workers, and officially fall off the government’s statistical radar.

    In July the number of discouraged workers was 1.1 million

    Equity markets are at (or near) the price levels in 2000.
    Stock market today is over 11,000. As stated didn't Obama save us all?


    You know, i bet in real life you are a pretty good guy. It is a shame that you allowed a democrat in the white house to get the best of you.....
    It has nothing to do with a Democrat in the WH, I grew up a Democrat, it is all about the results generated, results that some continue to blame on GW Bush 2 1/2 years after Bush left office. Results matter, not rhetoric.

    In voting in 2008, I checked out the resume of both McCain and Obama, the choice was easy. McCain wasn't my choice but he beat the alternative. My bet is that I have voted for more Democrats than you have Republicans although neither of us can prove it on line.

    Hate to tell you this, but, at least as of 2008, Arizona's population was growing faster than Texas' poplulation. California was not far behind. List of U.S. states by population growth rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Then you are buying the rhetoric and not the results. Would you rather live in a state or country with freedoms, personal responsibility, and the opportunities presented in TX or the nanny state and govt. involvement promoted by Obama?
