    I listen to all sides of radio and politics. I don't think anyone anywhere can make an informed decision without seeing what those on different sides are thinking. No matter how outlandish.

    However, the right generally is in sync when it comes to jobs in North Dakota listening and reading the news from that side.

    I can't listen to anyone that partisan. Ever. On either side. Closest I come to that masochistic act is watching Al Sharpton for ****s and giggles.

    Al is a riot only from the perspective of "How much dumber can he be?". Which usually gets answered fairly quickly.

    But yes, listening and reading right-wing raido and sites, they generally agree that North Dakota is a boom for jobs if people move there. The'yre unemployment is the lowest in the country at 2.8 % so something is ringing true no matter how much I don't like those guys on the right.

    If I can control either the numerator or the denominator, I can make the unemployment rate anything I want.

    Agreed about Rev. Al.

    One thing is for sure, the absolute fact is that economies like ND are doing well despite the policies of the current administration because of private capital, business, and land.

    Obama wants to say that his policies are on the ballot this Nov. while demos running run from them, won't invite him to their states, and in the case of KY, outright lie to the voters about their true agendas.

    Obama and progressives have done more to ensure that they lose for a generation than anything I can think other than repubs cowaring and not having a coherent message of course.

    This election should be a no brainer, but it will be unnecessarily close.

    My point being in a previous post a poster said nobody can find ANY jobs. Move to ND then and there are jobs. I agree Obama's policies have hurt the U.S. which is why I didn't vote for him. However, with that said, the Republicans have NOT proven themselves to be any better, just a different side of the same coin. They want to use big government to be morality police.

    Well, I dont know about any, but many are severely under employed, that's troubling. But I agree on both, going to where the job is, and repubs not being strong and resolute in their principles.

    The different method of measurement that also shows unemployment rates dropping? Yes, how terrible for democrats.

    Yeah but, making six figures in North Dakota requires you to live in North Dakota.
