    The truth is that, while unemployment has been falling in most states for the last two years, it has been rising in Texas.
    Just like a liberal, post a chart that they don't understand and ignore the charts that do. Employment in TX has grown. Percentage growth of the labor force is irrelevant comparison. TX is creating net jobs and Obama is losing them nationally. People are going to pay their higher taxes due to Obama and move more jobs to states without an income taxes further eroding the state revenues. Guess that is ok to a liberal who cares only about the liberal agenda.

    If you have anything you would like to add please do. But I'm not going to make your argument for you.


    Shows initiative and drive. Job history was an important factor for me in hiring people.
    Well isn't that nice.

    No, I am laughing at the entertainment you, Adam, Donc, and haymarket are providing. Keep up with the basic one liner non responses.

    The Jode family managed to do it under similar circumstances before.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Thanks for confirming to all with an open mind how negative liberals always are as you and others always look for the negatives on every issue. In your case 550,000 people making minimum wage is a negative where as with a Conservative it is the fact that many of these are first time workers that actually have a job in the Obama economy and that 550,000 people are working and not drawing taxpayer funded unemployment.

    In your case TX has a high number of uninsured which you post as negative whereas I post that quite a few of those are rich people who can afford paying their own healthcare and the poor people having many choices of taxpayer funded healthcare in TX.

    In your case TX has rising unemployment with is negative but in mine TX is creating jobs and has a net job gain. TX population is growing so fast with people moving here it is hard to keep up with that population growth. Of the 117,000 private sector jobs created in July TX created almost 30,000 of them and continues to grow jobs.

    In your case the TX education system is broken yet there are great colleges in TX drawing in state students and there are Fortune 500 companies moving to the state creating more jobs and tax revenue for the state.

    In your case evil rich people are demonized and should be forced to redistribute their wealth, in my world rich people chosing how to spend their own money stimulates economic growth, charitable giving and that grows the economy creating jobs for people

    Your cup remains half empty and proves just how miserable liberals are.

    What a ridiculous statement. If the state creates 1000 jobs and the population grows by 10,000, you have net negative employment, and that is what the graph shows. You have a habit of only looking at half of the equation.

    Looks to me like liberals got their poll rankings reversed, Rasmussen was the best in the last election cycle.
    Now that's funny ... you're citing a debunked article as evidence that Liberals have it backwards!

    But that isn't the case here, is it? TX is creating jobs and still has a lower unemployment rate than the nation

    Have you ever been to TX? What makes you an expert on the cost of living here? Keep buying the liberal rhetoric and ignore the liberal results. I will take the TX results any day. Your tax dollars also aren't going to pay those people here on minimum wage. I love how people who obviously haven't run anything know what private business should pay their workers. What do you think an uneducated worker should make?
