    Re: U.S. Adds 195,000 Jobs; Unemployment Remains 7.6%

    People hanging on every report of 100,000 to 200,000 jobs is a joke. This isn't Sweden or Denmark or some other much less populated country. We have a workforce of what 150,000,000? What is 195,000 jobs, when you're losing jobs as well? And what KIND of jobs? That's the key, are they flipping hamburgers or designing computers? I don't give a **** about a report that just talks about jobs, without qualifying it with the type of jobs. Look what they did with Obamacare, they postponed it because it's a jobs killer and would kill the Democrats trying to get reelected.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I can give you the benefit of the doubt on that then, I think. Sorry.

    You mean like bringing to the senate floor for a vote every time (37 times) the loons in the house voted to repeal BOcare? That shows responsibility on Harry’s part for not bringing it up to me.

    Why waste senate time on something that is not going to be signed into law? Now if bohner would put the senate bill to a vote there’s a pretty good chance of it being passed don’t you think?

    is it too much to ask of you to quit going personal, and stick to the topic at hand? just asking

    Please, stop posting already.
    i knew i would prove your ignorance
    QT is what made them safer Bonds have a guarantee return commodities have their own inherent value that is not tied to the dollar it is the reason gold sky rockets when currency takes a dive gold has its own value, and futures are traded on future returns on commodities

    LOL....wanna rephrase without the double talk? You cannot seriously argue that he had only positive effect upon the economy.

    This is absolutism and partisanism to the extreme.
    Results speak for themselves, 9.9 trillion GDP to 14.4 trillion, 10 plus million labor force increase, 146 million working Americans, average unemployment under 6%, never having 1 million discouraged workers so apparently Bush was President during that period of time too.

    No, meaning the dozens of House bills designed to grow jobs and improve economic growth that haven't been brought to the floor for debate and that excludes the repeal of Obamacare which would help as well.

You really are desperate here and I don't blame you, You voted for an empty suit whose economic policies have been a disaster.

Could it be the 6 trillion added to the debt? Or how about the 2 million fewer people working today than when the recession began? How about the 1.8% GDP growth for 2013 annualized based upon first quarter results? And all this 4 years after the end of the recession? This is what you support?

    Give me a name/number, something specific so I can check and see why if wasn’t brought to the floor for a vote.
