    Yes, the financial collapse was well underway when Obama took office.

    Yes, stock market is looking better, and has looked good for many of the last years, but in my estimation this is due to the financial crack the Fed's been injecting into the economy to keep the patient, the economy, alive. I wonder about the withdraw symptoms that may yet come.

    Finally! After more than 6 years, the jobs are coming back. Too bad the majority of them are part time rather than full time, or so it is my understanding, not full time jobs which families need to meet their financial obligations, to put food on the table, to send kids to college, and full time jobs which qualify for the much lauded, but far more hated ObamaCare, so limited opportunities for healthcare coverage.

    Compliance to regulations costs a business money. If Obama and his administration hadn't piled on even more useless regulation, further concerning businesses and business owners, it would be common sense that the recovery would have been far more vigorous far earlier, with far less need for the Fed's crack injection.

    In less than a month, the Republicans will have control over 2/3's of the federal government as well as a large majority of the state leadership positions. Let's see if they can do any better than what we've suffered under for the last 6 years. We can only be hopeful that they can and that they will. Certainly doesn't look like the Democrats can, based on the recent performance.

    Strange bedfellows indeed.

    On the DEM side, Warren and Pelosi versus Hoyer, Reid and Obama .
    I have to admit that I'm far from thrilled about the campaign finance changes and Wall Street giveaways. To me that seems like a major step backwards from where we should be going.

    If you actually pay attention, the answer to your question will become quite obvious.....

    Commerce can most definitely happen without government participation. It's unclear why anyone could possibly believe that it couldn't, and hasn't.

    And Boehner now owes Obama, Reid and Hoyer a pretty big favor going forward.
    Hopefully that means some peace in legislation next year.
    Also strangely silent this week was McConnell .

    GOP Utah has become a leading state with private/public ventures, especially in the transportation sector .
