    Where did i say anything about bush in the post that you quoted?

    Of course you wouldn't know anything about "hackery ".
    Keep buying the rhetoric, tree, because that is all you ever do. Facts have no place in your world. Why hasn't Harry Reid passed a budget in over three years? How will tax increases on the rich put 24 million unemployed/under employed people back to work full time? Without those millions working raising taxes on 2 million won't make a hill of beans different and most people who can think understand that.

    Liberals don't seem to comprehend reality, how will a 3.8+ trillion dollar budget reduce the deficit when there are so many smoke and mirrors in that budget that simply lies to the American people.

    Yup, if your reference to "people" can be substituted with "conservatives".
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    I am all for the economy improving. Before I break out the $10 bottle of champagne, I want to see these numbers improve as well as the unemployment benefit claims number:

    Last week, the number of people continuing to collect jobless benefits dropped to 3,43 Mil (a 100,000 loss, that is good), but the number does not include workers who recieve extended benefits under federal programs. I wish they included these since we pay for them.

    The workers under federal programs also reduced by 22,800 to 3.48 Mil. That is good too.

    So far, you really can't be disappointed with those numbers.

    However, the marginally attached is currently around 2.8 million. These are people who have stopped looking for work. Fed Chair Ben Bernanke pointed out that this number may be going up. That is one number that we really have a hard time maintaining, so it isn't a strong indicator.

    The strongest indicator we have is workforce. How big is it. In June 2009, the labor force was at 154,730,000 people; the current number is 154,395,000. When this number goes up, Unemployment comes down, and the marginally attached goes down (it would have to be significant), then I would agree with your statement. But hey, the silver lining here is less tax payer money is going out to people who "don't have jobs."

    Also, we have to wait on the Seasonally Adjusted Numbers, they are only estimates.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Say what you want, but the economy is not getting better, and if it does, then Obama is just doing it for re-election. Once he is re-elected, he will destroy our economy, and we'll be on our way to a one world government. Sound's crazy, but it will happen if you continue to buy what Obama says.

    To the contrary, the work force number is among the most misleading in that it includes retirees; a group that has been increasing in huge numbers since the baby boomer generation began hitting the age of retirement a few years ago.
