    Meh...23% looking for an issue.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I don't understand how it could be hard to get a job?

    I'd say a majority of the unemployed (Real Estate, Lawyers, etc.) are too prideful to get a job.. in say.... retail.

    I am not trying to offend anybody and I apologize if I am. But I just don't get it. I know a few former Vice Executives who now deliver pizza for Pizza Hut. They haven't given in their tie for pizza, but they are on a hiatus and are finding ways to develop their "real" job, while they provide for their families.

    Pride, demanding higher wages, minimum wage.

    Brothers and Sisters if think todays numbers are high, you had better brace yourself because you ain't seen nothing yet!

    When the Amateur in Chief Obama is through wrecking the economy with his CAP ON TRADE, ECONOMIC GROWTH, JOBS CREATION, and more, the price of every commodity sold in this country including, food, electricity, gasoline, and everything else, will skyrocket as Obama wants to see then the unemployment rates we see today will seem low in comparison.
    The next shoe to fall is going to be the direct attack on citizens lives with the forced euthanasia the Dictator in Chief Obama wants as a provision on the CARELESS HEALTH PLAN.
    Wake up Americans this is a real crisis in the making

    January 2008... San Francisco Chronicle interview: Obama said: "Energy Prices Will Skyrocket Under My Cap and Trade Plan"

    "Mar 15, 2008 ... "My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it".

    He was not dishonest and their was nothing even remotely racist about his comment.

    The term "your boy" has nothing to do with race, at all. Now if he had said "that boy" you mite have had a case.

    In the end it is nothing but an ad-hom and completely and utterly irrelevant to his comment.

    Sorry but I have to disagree. Its clearly obvious when anyone refers to President Obama as "boy"....they are doing so in a racist way. Especially when they say things like "it used to matter to me"......indicates that this is an on going thing....not just a slip of the tongue. Just calling it like it is.

    Uh, you didn't respond, so I dont know how you addressed anything.

    The article you linked basically said that Thomas doesn't participate in the discussions because he prefers to sit back and listen. Pu-lease.....
    Sure, I mean you obviously know more about the supreme court than Jan Greenberg. Good point.

    Also, if you actually knew anything about the court like you profess to, you would know that the Blackmun papers that she references are primary source documents that completely prove what she's saying.

    The man is a light-weight, not because of his ethnicity but because of his brain....and to think he replaced Justice Marshall who was a brilliant and intelligent man.
    I love Thurgood, but your claim that he's brighter than Thomas is just based on the fact that you think you like Thurgood more than Thomas. You haven't offered a single intelligent comment on this topic yet.

    Do I accuse Breyer of following Stevens? Roberts of following Alito? No.

    Why Not?

    Because even though I do not always agree with their decisions, they have all shown a willingness to participate and their opinions display a thought process.
    Bull****. You don't accuse them of that because you didn't know that they vote together more than Thomas and Scalia, because you don't know what the **** you're talking about.

    Thomas is more like Scalia. Scalia's opinions are the most convoluted and "ends justify the means" opinions written.
    ****in lol. You've been so thoroughly discredited on this that I don't know why I bother responding any more.

    If you feel like responding, lets take this to the appropriate thread.

    I've said numerous times on here. I will hire any and every college educated individual who wants a job to work for me at minimum wage.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
