    Jobless claims up- MSM- "unexpectedly" or Why don't the Lefts' policies work


    Jobless claims rose 10,000 in the last week


    An unexpected rise in jobless claims indicate that the labor market is still struggling. Initial claims rose 10,000 in the week ending July 16, to 418,000, according to statistics released Thursday by the Department of Labor.

    The Employment and Training Administration also revised the previous week's claims figure, for the weekend ending July 9, up to 408,000 from 405,000. Claims for jobless benefits had declined over the previous two weeks, ending on June 25 and July 2.

    The four-week moving average, often considered a better indicator of the labor market, decreased by 2,750 to 421,250.

    Look for a 'Wag the Dog' scenario very soon. This President & Democrats are sinking in the Polls. They need a big distraction before the 2012 Elections. Their Libya debacle isn't enough of a distraction. So,War with Iran? Don't be surprised if this happens before the 2012 Elections. All is definitely not well in Hopey Changey Land.

    (they might have to go after the flag)
    :eusa_whistle:


    Comrades,

    this does not speak well for Papa Obama and our dreams to build a Progressive utopia


    Just a brief exposure to an image of the American flag shifts voters, even Democrats, to Republican beliefs, attitudes and voting behavior even though most don't believe it will impact their politics, according to a new two-year study just published in the scholarly Psychological Science.

    What's more, according to three authors from the University Chicago, Cornell University and Hebrew University, the impact had staying power.


    -We must, effective immediately, remove the flag from our events.

    -We must fight in court the placement of the flag in any public places
    with the argument that it infringes on people's rights

    -We must hide behind our favorite causes to complete this mission- it is for children; it is racist; it offends the lower classes



    The flag must go, so our Progressive dreams can live on

    But what can we ever replace it with....?
    We need to start a "grass roots" movement to replace with something
    that is more befitting Papa Obama and our goals

    Perhaps, a few suggestions

    Obama gave the Republican Congress the tax policy THEY wanted -

    7 months ago.

    It aint 'the left's' policy that aint working at this point.

    He just did not LET the Bush tax cuts expire

    Good thing, Papa Obama's policies have messed things up so bad
    the last thing we want to do is raise taxes

    Papa Obama said that so it must be true

    Yeah. If small business owners and anyone making $250,000 are slapped with higher taxes I'm sure they are gonna run right out, hire up the ass and expand their businesses

    The economy will take off like a freight train.

    If you believe that than I have some real good swamp I'll sell ya down here in Florida.

    Indeed, the Left is concerned with these 400 who own more than half the wealth in the US
    like it is their money to be concerned with

    But the "400 million" Chinese owning more than half of our future wealth that Papa Obama and the Left want to keep giving it to,

    does not bother them

    Funny how that works
    :eusa_whistle:


    Of course, if the Left and Papa Obama can sell enough of our future wealth to the Chinese
    then we might be communist by default, since they will own us
    :eusa_angel:

    This is actually dated, since the debt is even more now
