    The relentless bashing of anything-Obama and anything-Democratic for the last 6 years by FOX, especially the last 2, is clearly the deciding factor in this mid-term. We'll see if there is still an Ebola scare next Wed. Or if Dems can salvage a few governor gains .

    Krauthammer just blamed Obama for the space disaster today. This is today's GOP unfiltered.

    After continued economic growth through the new year, we'll be seeing a whole lot of buyer's remorse with Boehner/McConnell running this expansion into an austere halt .

    Conservatives have railed on and on, incessantly, for years, that private industry can do everything better than the government. So, it of course stands to reason that when a privately-contracted space mission blows up, that conservatives should blame ... the government, or more specifically, the president. Right?

    Right?

    Is this thing on?

    Damn I gotta wait till Thanksgiving night to get a new laptop at our local Wally--the kid manager knows his stuff--well, after their 103-day vacation save seven, GOP toes will be to the fire--the only civil war better than the GOP one may be the DEM one brewing to throw Reid out--I want my guy Durbin -

    Ironically, there are many men's clothiers whose apparel is still made in the USA, from t-shirts to jackets to other items. Woolrich has been in business since 1830 - they made blankets during the Civil War - and they still make the best outdoor shirts and jackets for men that I have ever seen. They're woolen, they're soft, they look good, and they are very well made. They're a bit pricey, but they last forever. That what I've always bought as gifts for the male members of my family, and they LOVE them! I'm doing my part for our economy.
    South Carolina use make a whole bunch of clothes. Not anymore.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    They deserve to lose this election based on terrible campaigning.
    Apparently they don't see the data as you do.

    Most Dems running on their own record would have to explain their connection to Obama. That doesn't seem to be a wining ticket.

    It is almost like the Democrats let Fox News run their campaigns for them. Conservative media claims 2014 is a referendum on Obama, and the Democratic candidates run right out there and campaign as if it actually is.

    The definition would include those that want a job but can't find one and have exhausted UE benefits so they are NOT counted. That would make the TRUE number quite a bit higher and you know it.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    And yet...there are people who insist that that's not a "real" definition. I find it odd to declare every expert in the field wrong.

    j-Mac...it's like civilians calling the M-16A2 or the M-4 an automatic weapon or machine gun. To them, "automatic" and "semi-automatic" are the same thing.

    For J
    But that's not true...The U-3 is what is commonly used to report figures to the people, and that uses data of monthly benefit claims. There are more out there that want to work but have exhausted their benefits.
