    Holy ****, I'm even more embarrassed for ya.

    That's not what you asked for, Con. You asked for the BLS chart which upsideguy's chart referrenced.

    That's what I gave you.

    His chart was of monthly changes in private sector jobs. I gave you the BLS chart of monthly changes in private sector jobs.

    You've been bitching and moaning ever since.

    42% of total revenue comes from individual income tax.

    But, since you insist that Social Security is part of income tax, well, then the total is 82%.

    Karma's a bitch.

    Oh, and 47% of filers pay no income tax at all. As Enola says, "Calling Doctors Google, Bing and Google...."

    Where's yours?

    Net job loss, net private sector job loss, declining labor force, more discouraged workers, higher misery index, 4.6 trillion added to the debt. Yep, those are numbers a liberal can be proud of. Obama is your kind of President.

    Better than Bush where both unemployment and the debt nearly doubled.

    You called that a success. Under Obama, unemployment is up just 9% (up 86% under Bush) and debt is up 43% (up 86% under Bush).

    Throw in one of the worst recessions in U.S. history, taking us into an 8 year long war over WMD which didn't exist, losing the Twin Towers, and fleeing office as the economy teetered on the brink of no return, scoring a record low JAR of 19%; and we have a president you applaud and would vote for again if he could run.

    G'head, this is where you bitch and moan again about results.

    Bush isn't on the ballot and won't be running against Obama. Obama has a record of net job losses, net private sector job losses, declining labor force, net gain in unemployment, almost double the discouraged workers, and 4.6 trillion added to the debt. Sounds like your kind of President. You wouldn't vote for Bush with his record in 2004 but will for Obama in 2012. That makes you a hypocrite.

    Oh, and 47% of filers pay no income tax at all. As Enola says, "Calling Doctors Google, Bing and Google...."

    Here's my source: Yes, 47% of Households Owe No Taxes. Look Closer. - NYTimes.com (one of hundreds)

    Where's yours?
    thanks for that
    notice the current share of corporate contribution to federal revenues
    now, please notice the decline of such contribution since the golden age of America:

    coincidence or correlation?

    I see where you get your 14%...that's the number who pay neither Federal income tax nor Social Security.

    So. What does that mean? Well, it means that Catawba chooses to ignore Social Security when he chooses (your 42%) and include it as he likes. You're one piece'a work my friend. Your credibility was hanging on by a fingernail with me. I just trimmed it.

    Nope, not a hypocrite. Unlike you, I am capable of understanding that much of Obama's first year was directly attributable to Bush's Great Recession. Just like I didn't blame Reagan in his first term for the mess he inherited from Carter, I don't blame Obama either.

    Too bad you can't be that consistant.

    What's the difference between Bush the other Conservatives running in this years election? What different plan are they coming with that would separate them from Bush?
