    To fool with the OP

    it's slowly crawling back
    .... jerk, jerk, jerk, jerk... ahhhhhhhhhhhhh...

    let's hope that the both sides don't screw it up by letting us go over the cliff
    ....jerk, jerk, jerk, jerk... ahhhhhhhhhhhhh...

    ...
    or by enacting the changes too quickly
    .... ROTFLOL...

    There is no recovery.
    Figment of imagination.
    Like a pubescent's wet dream.

    But hey... jerk away... if it makes you feel good.

    Welfare doesn't pay for luxuries. People who play the system work side jobs they don't report to buy those things. You can't judge everyone based on what a few do. There are a lot of people who need the social programs as a hand up, and they have no intention of staying on welfare. The majority of people getting public assistance would rather work and provide a better life for themselves and their families. There are also many cases where people can't rise above poverty because they have health problems that could be corrected with basic medical care. However, Most adults can't get Medicaid or cheap medical care. My daughter was working hard to provide for her and her children, until she fell ill When the medical bills pilled up and when she couldn't get medical care she ended up losing her job and the debt from medical bills caused her to have to move in with me and my husband. She is better now, but the point is there are many hard working people who try to take responsibility for themselves but face set backs which are not of their own making. Frankly I cam getting tired of the GOP claiming my daughter is a parasite on society when the real parasites are making millions in bonuses and having the government bail them out because they manage banks or big business.

    A lot of folks in Memphis argue that pulled pork is best when you start with a dry rub.

    Your understanding of the poor is total BS!

    You've obviously gotten these ignorant ideas from people like Limbaugh or Hannity.

    Welfare isn't a way of life for most Americans. It is a hand up so that people who fall on hard times have a path to being a productive citizen again. We can't get rid of social programs just because some abuse it. We would save a lot more tax payer dollars by getting rid of corporate welfare. The Wall Street fat cats got rich while they crashed the economy, then when they got bailed out they paid themselves millions in bonuses.

    The official figure is around 108k, unless you're "keeping score at home."

    If it wasn't for stupid people you guys would have no base because xou would have to be pretty thick to think that report is indicative of anything good.
    NOV-2012 - Not Seasonally Adjusted - 7.4%

    NOV-2012 - Seasonally Adjusted - 7.7%

    The civilian labor force participation rate declined by 0.2 percentage point to 63.6 percent
    in November, offsetting an increase of the same amount in October. Total employment was
    about unchanged in November, following a combined increase of 1.3 million over the prior
    2 months. The employment-population ratio, at 58.7 percent, changed little
    in November.


    Yeah some thick folks running wild out there, some of them even claim to have an upper hand on accredited professionals within their given field without so much as glancing over the report in dispute.
