    All across the nation, we are seeing Cities and States firing Policemen, laying off teachers, shutting down schools, turning off streetlights, failing to maintain public spaces, failing to repair streets and other infrastructure, writing IOU's, printing their own money, and telling employees to take unpaid days off.

    Meanwhile the country is going to hell in a handbasket and we are not generating jobs.

    The only thing that we have seen generated out of Washington are the outrageous lies about an imaginary economic recovery. If there is a recovery, where in the hell are the jobs??????

    Change we can believe in. Obama has taken a minor recession and turned it into a Depression because of government inaction.

    Damn this administration to High Holy Hell anyway!

    Unemployment is universally described as a lagging indicator. The fact there was a raise in GDP is a great sign.

    The GDP was nothing more than the by product of omnibus spending. That money was all borrowed, and is dwindling. What's next? More spending? Nope. Cut the budget? Well, we could, but we'd have to cut discretionary spending by 60%!!! Think Washington will do that?

    "Unsustainable" is a word EVERYONE is going to become intimately aware of in the very near future.
