    Not at all surprised concerning the jobs numbers though.
    Are you suggesting that the conservative brain child, "No Child Left Behind" isn't working?" What a shock. Intelligent Design, hows that working out for ya? GOP congress wants to cherry pick only the science they agree with so don't be surprised when businesses want to relocate or bring in more intelligent immigrants to take your jobs. Not at all surprised concerning the job numbers, especially in conservative states.

    Do you make this up as you go along ? Texas is HIRING, and we're hiring Californians and Ganders. People and families that had to run away from their blue plague states because their idiot politicians pushed a corrupt ideology.

    Hows Obama's economy working out for you ?

    Let me guess, thats not his fault either.

    The sequester cuts are having their effect and you still don't get it.

    The Federal Reserve has explicitly criticised budget cuts imposed by Congress, blaming fiscal policy for holding back the US's economic recovery.
    After a two-day meeting, the Federal Open Markets Committee (FOMC) said on Wednesday in a statement that despite signs of recovery "fiscal policy is restraining economic growth". The statement is the FOMC's boldest assertion to date that Washington policy is hampering the US's fragile economic recovery. It stands in marked contrast to last month's more cautious statement, which said "fiscal policy has become somewhat more restrictive".
    The Fed also left interest rates unchanged but said it would "closely monitor" economic and financial information in the coming months.
    The Fed said: "Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in March suggests economic activity has been expanding at a moderate pace. Labor market conditions have shown some improvement in recent months, on balance, but the unemployment rate remains elevated. Household spending and business fixed investment advanced, and the housing sector has strengthened further, but fiscal policy is restraining economic growth."

    False false and false...

    Refer to this chart.

    http://graphics8.nytimes.com/package...ll-graphic.pdf

    High school grad, some college and college grad were all won by a 8% margin.

    Not graduating from high school and post grad won by dems. 22% swing for those not graduating high school to dems. 4% swing for those with a post grad education.

    That has as at least much to do with the tax increases and higher revenue as the sequester.

    I note that Texas was hiring folks to work in an unsafe fertilizer plant. How did that work out for ya?


    "...The Texas GOP has set itself explicitly against teaching children to be critical thinkers. Never mind the creeping stupidization of this country, the growing dumbification of our children, our mounting rejection of, even contempt for, objective fact. Never mind educators who lament the inability of American children to think, to weigh conflicting paradigms, analyze competing arguments, to reason, ruminate, question and reach a thoughtful conclusion. Never mind that this promises the loss of our ability to compete in an ever more complex and technology-driven world.

    Never mind. The Texas branch of one of our two major political parties opposes teaching critical thinking skills or anything that might challenge a child’s “fixed beliefs.” So presumably, if a child is of the “fixed belief” that Jesus was the first president of the United States or that 2+2 = apple trees or that Florida is an island in an ocean on the moon, educators ought not correct the little genius lest she (gasp!) change her “fixed belief,” thereby undermining mom and dad.
    That’s just…just…....Holy wow.

    For what it’s worth, the Texas GOP says that language was not supposed to be in the platform. Spokesman Chris Elam says its inclusion “was an oversight on the subcommittee’s part.”

    If that explanation leaves you cold, join the club. That such an asinine position was even under consideration is hardly comforting. And the fact that something so neon stupid escaped notice of both the subcommittee and the full platform committee suggests the Texas GOP could use a little critical thinking instruction itself.

    When you set out to argue that Democrat supporters are smarter than Republican supporters it would be wise to try a little harder to not sound like an idiot.

    I wonder if Texas is successful in teaching their children basic language skills so that they don't make fools of themselves by using "words" like 'stupidization' and 'dumbification?'
