    "Washington – House GOP leaders are rushing a vote to ban all federal funding for NPR in an effort to reforge party unity a day after it splintered badly.

    Fifty-four conservatives defected Tuesday to vote against a spending bill that would forestall a government shutdown for three weeks that they felt didn't go far enough to cut spending. But there is little chance of House Republican leaders losing votes in its bid to kill funding for NPR – the third such vote in weeks. The issue has been a rallying point among conservatives for decades.

    Earlier this month, conservative activists released a video purporting to show NPR fundraiser Ron Schiller calling tea partyers "seriously racist" and saying that despite potential damage to smaller stations, "Frankly, it is very clear that we would be better off in the long run without federal funding." In the subsequent outcry, Mr. Schiller left NPR and the organization's president, Vivian Schiller (no relation) resigned. (The full video, subsequently released, shows that Mr. Schiller's comments were selectively edited.)"

    And now the neo-cons want to attack another oil rich country (Libya).

    The GOP overreaching? You betcha. 2012 will remake the political landscape once again.

    Does taking a caddy count as a "job created or saved"?

    the "brackets" issue is a Hannity/Faux N00z inspired, tempest in a teapot. ZZZzzz aside from being off-topic.

    It's totally on topic, as demonstrative of how utterly disconnected the Boyking is from reality and his job.

    BTW, you in the posse going with him to Rio?

    The government cannot create jobs, it can only support an environment that promotes job creation. Lower taxes, cheap energy and less regulations for small business is the way to job growth and democrats are fighting it every step of the way. What was the first issue the democrat party tackled when it gained the majority half way into Bush's 2nd term? Fannie Mae? The economy? Nope. Democrats went after steroid use in Baseball while Fannie was in free fall. Please lefties, no lectures on fictional "jobs bills" while democrats are still in the majority in the senate and we have a socialist in the white house who runs away in hides or plays golf while the world is in crisis.

    The two parties, over the last 3-4 decades, rigged the system so that the only *cough* industries we have left are "service" and "financial". Thanks a lot for nothing. They sold the American people down the river. The Repubs don't seem to mind however. Everything can be remedied by deregulation LOL.

    The government can and does create jobs. Saying government does not is bullshit propaganda, believing it does not is stupidity.

    Proof? Sure! The United States Navy; employs officers and enisted personnel; uses products and services from the private sector to feed and cloth its employees; said employees spent their earnings on products and services sold by the private sector in shops which surround all naval facitites.

    Countless examples to disprove the canard the government can't create jobs. Stupid people believe it, liars continue to post it.

    More proof? Why bother. Non liars and thinking people get it.
