    How do you "create" jobs when people don't have money in their pockets and their jobs have been sent overseas?

    Oh well....Hagel said it....Well by God, then we should all think alike, much like the liberal lemmings that fall in line with anyone saying something dumb on their side of the isle...You know what I think of your "Hagel said so" BS? So what!

    What is irresponsible is using record budgets as a baseline for debt ceiling negotiations and then blaming conservatives for not buying the baseline. Doubt you understand baseline budgeting either. It is a total embarrassment to have an incompetent in the WH who thinks he is a King.

    Ask "your" President. Where is the incentive for business to hire people with this Administration in charge? 2 1/2 years later and you are still blaming someone else refusing to admit that your "hope and change" definition was different than Obama's.

Shocked!!

We have corporate executives who make millions by importing goods and services from abroad.
    I'm speechless... I've never seen such blind loyalty in my life. Is liberalism a political ideology, or a cult?

    Let's hear it libs, how the economy is getting better.....Ha! what a joke....

    Then there is this little ditty.....



    That 16% must largely be in these forums from what I see of the posting from liberals, and liberals that are ashamed to admit they are liberals in here...

    WTF? Employers did not stop adding jobs in August. The workforce grew by 366,000 and a net gain of 331,000 jobs were added last month.

    Did you ask a question? Or disguise an ideologically misguided rant in the form of a question with only the use of a question mark at the end?

    Again, if people don't have the money to buy stuff, how in the hell do you increase demand and jobs?
