    We Dem hold the controls, but our leaders act like ??? What word rhymes with controls and denotes an opening in the posterior of most living beings?

    The results of a government study:

    For the past two years, the government has worked hard and spent many tax dollars to find the approval ratings for unemployment.

    They have concluded that a 15% unemployment level is acceptable to 85% of the working population.

    Now let’s just hope that the unemployment rate doesn’t change.

    Jamescag, none of us voted for the rich business moguls who are sitting on trillions in cash and not hiring people. None of us voted for the Wall Street moguls who started this mess in the first place. Admittedly, some of us did vote for the clowns who repealed the Glass–Steagall act, to let the Wall Streeters do it.

    The “smart” thing they choose to do is to buy the elections.

    “http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/14/AR2010071405960.html”

    Lulz, like this is new. Companies have been doing this for years. More jobs were created during the Clinton era than during the Bush era. For context, taxes were higher under Clinton.

    The comparison should have been this: Job growth through Clinton two terms was 22.7 million. Through Bush’s two terms, it was 1.1 million. http://www.politifact.com/ohio/statements/2010/jul/25/sherrod-brown/sherrod-brown-touts-job-grown-during-clinton-presi/

    Oh… and:

    The numbers bear this out, too. BLS data, adjusted for inflation, show that average weekly wages grew by 21 percent from the start of Clinton’s first term to the end of his second term. They grew by only 2 percent under Bush’s two terms.

    This has nothing to do with “impending taxes” (they’ve not had their taxes raised). This is the result of trickle-down economics.

    The stock market is back up, and the corporations are STILL sitting on their profits, not investing the money in America for jobs, and real progress for everyone, by REALLY increasing the GDP, rather than the debt– exactly what is “uncertain” about “business as usual”??

    Maybe those backing or voting for the GOP are indeed taking too much of that Lunesta the butterfly must represent?

    ^ I believe George Soros controls them. But then, he made his money by “honestly” manipulating currency markets, so maybe not.
