    As much as Unemployment sucks, that's not a bad number. Remember that Capitalism depends on having some unemployed people in order to keep wages down and the job market competitive. If that sounds stupid to you, you have found the fault in Capitalism

    Only a conservative could argue with that.

    How much of that total accumulated debt is interest on the inherited TAD?
    Why do GOPs say the interest will be one trillion at the end of the decade as a new recess talking point ?
    About a trillion dollars so the other 5.7 is still a trillion more than Bush generated in 8 years and Bush inherited a 5.7 trillion debt with debt service as well. Bush also had 9/11 at a cost of 1 trillion dollars

    We had 146.3 million people working in December 2007 and we have 145.2 million working today. Obama has averaged about 900,000 discouraged workers each month and those people aren't counted in the labor force.

    You aren't arguing with an Obama supporter here who buys what the media tells you, I verify the rhetoric and BLS is a great site for that information. Amazing isn't it with all those job gains Obama is still in the mid 40's in JAR. Wonder why? Could it be that things aren't as rosy as you are being told?

    I understand that our Constitution is federal on some issues and national on others. Our limited form of government is limited to the general welfare and the common defense, along with paying the debts.

    Yeah, but that number is closer to 4%, not 6.7%. It also has to be cyclical rather than entrenched.

    I really would like to know why good people like you still support this incompetent, empty suit? Are your standards so low that even an empty suit impresses you?

    And the "general welfare" is promoted by the enumerated powers of Article 1 Section 8. Anything the government tries outside of those powers is extra constitutional, and illegal.

    The general powers are to pay the debts, and provide for the common defense and general welfare.

    Quick literary lesson: you are referring to what is known as a preamble. Basically, a description of what is to come below.

    If a company memo starts off by saying, "You are going to help this company" and then lists what you are to do below, that doesn't mean you disregard the list and do whatever you want to "help" the company.

    You speak of concepts, yet you are unwilling to understand the concept that in "promoting the General Welfare" there are specific powers granted to do such even when they are spoon fed to you...That is called cognitive dissonance. Or, in short just plain ignorance.
