    Way to miss the point, as usual.

    Exactly. And then, if it is going to be about Obama, they completely refuse to tout the good things which have happened under Obama.

    Obviously I live in a fairly small corner of the country (as do we all) but I live in an area which allows me to get television advertisements for election races in three different states. I've yet to see a single Democrat run on things which have gone well in the last few years.

    Now what many people in this thread seem not to realize is I honestly don't care who wins what election, but it has been terrible campaigning strategy.

    Yes, just as it is one of the most offered oppositions to Obamacare and they both are stupid.

    Bottom line here is that are aren't enough Americans working full time and that there are far too many Americans that would gladly have a full time well paying job, but can only find part time work, and that this is a direct result of the failed liberal policies of Obama and his administration.
    I'm sorry...when I hear people blame "liberals" or "conservative" for all of the ills in the world, I've learned they simply are not worth my time to care about. Sometimes I respond, but this time I've decided you're not worth my time.

    Come back with something better than blind partisanship and we'll talk.

    You know it is such crap reading page after page of you demanding that people that argue against your points constantly accompany their claims with backing reference material, yet you get to throw BS like this with nothing...pfft...The next time you ask for proof of anything remember this post.

    Almost everything pinqy ever says, especially in a thread like this, comes from the BLS. The difference from someone like him and others who are asked to support their position is that the others are saying inaccurate things. They then use these inaccurate statements to support their inaccurate position.

    The difference is that I have a proven history of knowing what I'm talking about and not making **** up. So when I give figures, they will be correct, and I always have actual sources.

    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Yes, Sly posted the same table...Problem with Statistics is that they can be manipulated, and in this climate of political appointees, and corruption of the system, I hold very little confidence in them....BTW, since you are holding out some sort of expertise on the subject, I forget, do you work for the BLS or something?
