    Just like his bull**** claim that Rasmussen was the "number one" pollster in 2008. He says a lot of things which aren't true.

    Texas adds 732,800 jobs in 10 years; no other state tops 100,000 - The Business Journals

    Texas added 732k jobs in the last 10 years and 251k last year.

    Whether you think they are growing because of their jobs picture or not is opinion. The fact remains they are tops in job creation and tops in population growth. Is there a correlation between the two? Its possible. Its also possibly why the unemployment numbers in the state remain high while they create so many jobs, they have a lot of job seekers. Draw your own conclusions, but to say the state isnt doing some things right is folly.

    To say that it's folly makes no sense when their unemployment rate is rising while the unemployment rate in most other states is falling.

    What you seem incapable of is doing simple math. I challenge you to do the math that you seem to avoid in favor of vague and general statements.

    1- Take the minimum wage and multiply it by forty hours. (I know I am being generous here in your favor but lets do that anyway wallowing in the belief that there is full time work available. Now multiply that times 52. So what figure do you then get?

    2- Now deduct the expenses that people incur in actually working like transportation, clothing for the job, and other things and tell me how much is left.

    3- Now go the federal statistics giving us the levels for poverty and compare those two numbers. Pay special attention to what it takes to support a family of two or three or four or five people.

    4- What do you discover in comparing those numbers Conservative?

    Yup, and they only seemed to lose a family member once a week while doing it.

    The one that has done the least will be the nominee. I would think Donald has it all tied up.

    Rick Perry And Texas Job Numbers Political Math

    Texas :

    United States :

    If this were true, all these new low-paying jobs should be dragging down the wages data, right? But if we look at the wages data since the beginning of the recession (click to enlarge, states are listed alphabetically)
    Wage growth in Texas versus other states:

    And it turns out that the opposite is true. Since the recession started hourly wages in Texas have increased at a 6th fastest pace in the nation.

    In all its a decent article and deserves some attention.

    With an unemployment rate of 8.4%, Texas ranks 27th in the nation. Unemployment Rates for States

    "August 20, 2011 | 11:06 a.m.



    Gov. Rick Perry touting the state's job growth on the campaign trail got some bad news on Friday morning: The state's unemployment rate is the worst in nearly a quarter century.


    Texas added nearly 30,000 jobs during the month of July the 10th month running that the state has experienced positive job growth. But despite that private-sector growth, the state's unemployment rate rose slightly in the same time period, from 8.2 percent to 8.4 percent, hovering just under the national unemployment rate of 9.1 percent. Meanwhile, government jobs fell by 9,400 in July, the result, at least in part, of sweeping state budget cuts."

    Despite Job Growth, Texas Unemployment Rate Worst in Decades - Emily Ramshaw, The Texas Tribune - NationalJournal.com

    Unemployment has fallen in most states since 2009 ... but it is still rising in Texas....

    Texas has created 125,000 GOVERNMENT jobs since the downturn: nearly half of all the GOVERNMENT-CREATED jobs during this time period.

    Actually I'm embarrassed that my State the State I grew up in is dead last in education and is leading the nation in poverty.

    My State can do better than dead last!
