    Oh, for goodness sake, the economy was destroyed before Obama was even sworn in. Between January '08 and January '09, the country lost almost 4 million jobs. By the time Bush's Great Recession ended in June, 8 million jobs would be lost to his recession. During that period, we lost 5% GDP, the Dow fell from 14,000 to 8,000 when Obama started, and then down to 6,000 over the next month. The housing market was destroyed, the credit markets were locked up frozen, and the economy was on the verge of collapsing into a full-blown depression. The U6 unemployment rate nearly doubled over the course of Bush's Great Recession, adding a staggering 12 million to the rank of underemployed to a total of 22 million. Add to that the $1.2 trillion budget deficit Bush left for Obama and one can only shake their head in disbelief reading your absurd claim that it was Obama who destroyed the nation's economy.

    Ok you claimed it, show us the facts. YOU CLAIMED IT.

    That is a lie, they have the highest number but not the highest percentage. You don't know what you are talking about. what percentage of 12.2 million is 550,000?

    IT IS, get over it. Like I said you can't deal with facts. Just ask those that were against interracial marriages like them you will have to deal with it in the long run.

There are people with families that MINIMUM wage jobs (even if someone were to work two of them full-time) would not help the families like a true flourishing economy would as Conservative says there is in Texas and isn't.
    Who or what conservative applauding McDonald's? Largest employers in Texas is the energy business, aviation, medical, chemical, retail, agriculture and this pay far above minimum wage. You can go up north and make more money but your cost of living is also much higher, therefor it cancels out the higher wage.

    Nope, marriage has nothing to do with equality or civil rights until the Supreme Court says so. DOM also disagrees with you and was signed by Clinton.

    Dude, you are a serial liar. Texas actually has the highest PERCENTAGE of minimum wage jobs -- tied with Mississippi.

    "Additionally, Texas has by far the largest number of employees working at or below the federal minimum wage ($7.25 per hour in 2010) compared to any state, according to a BLS report. In 2010, about 550,000 Texans were working at or below minimum wage, or about 9.5 percent of all workers paid by the hour in the state. Texas tied with Mississippi for the greatest percentage of minimum wage workers…From 2007 to 2010, the number of minimum wage workers in Texas rose from 221,000 to 550,000, an increase of nearly 150 percent."
