    You think Obama is a deficit hawk proposing a 3.9 trillion dollar budget?

    You are indeed a legend in your own mind, thinking you won the debate when BLS, BEA, and Treasury make you look foolish
    LOL Con....you love to try to spout BLS, BEA....but repeatedly you have been shown the BLS/BEA numbers that don't support your positions...and when you are shown this your response is always the same....shuffle off and hide.

    This is just so stupid, it is the "soup kitchens create depressions" argument. Cutting social services will not cause job creation. "dependence" is created by destroying good wage employment. If you want fewer poor, support job creation, not neoliberal/supply-side job destruction.

    Feel free to post those numbers because you have never done so. The one hiding is always you when confused by data and facts. I have posted the BLS charts which of course you ignored. I post Treasury data which you ignore, I post BEA.gov data which you ignore. The one that runs is you. Don't blame you because being in California anything that refutes your comments has to be false.

    Holding people accountable and people accepting personal responsibility will create jobs. How many people do you employ? Why don't you do something about it by creating a business that actually helps people

    The more frequently a poster uses the words "liberal" or "leftist" in a given post, the greater the chance of said poster being completely full of ****.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    So why wouldnt you want more poor/middle class people to open businesses and become rich?

    Aw, yes, now the thread is complete as we have the same liberal hacks here promoting their ideology and bashing anything including actual results that destroy it. What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty? Same people over and over again promoting the same failed economic policies and results. Guess some people will never change or learn.

    Why.....so you can run off and hide again? You have REPEATEDLY been shown the numbers but you choose to spin and shuffle rather than address the issue. Typical of your M.O.

    Here's an easy to comprehend chart for you:

    I just got through destroying this "small business" meme, and I know you read it, it was admitted that it is done to enrich the owner. And, instead of trying to defend this old, worn out, BS argument about "Dems create dependency" (from a former "states rights" Dem himself, no less!!!) you instead decide to restart a dead argument. I don't have the capital to hire, it was wiped out by the Bush Recession.

    And what exactly does that tell you? You think that TX leading the nation in job creation benefited from the Obama economy? you have no idea what the charts show but because you think they make your point you post them. Here are the numbers that matter

    December 2007 there were 146 million working Americans and today that is 148 million

    When Obama took office and passed his stimulus to create shovel ready jobs there were 142 million working Americans, today that is 148 million

    In January 2001 the debt was 10.6 trillion and today it is 18.2 trillion. Are those the result you want to tout?
