    Libs - Before you rip WND remember these stats came from the Democratic led government...

    Unemployment in March was 20 percent higher in so-called "blue states" won by Democratic candidate Barack Obama in last fall's presidential election than in "red states" won by Republican candidate John McCain, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    Duh!

    Blue states had all the manufacturing jobs.

    And this would make sense why red states were stupid enough to vote for the status quo. They just don't get it yet.

    And I spent an entire day yesterday talking about a PBS special I saw on Sunday explaining what happened to LA.

    WW2 started and blacks were recruited to LA to work for GM, Ford, Chrysler and for 30 years black people were very successful in LA. Then the Big 3 left and that had a lot to do with why the riots happened in the 60's and also why south central today is a war zone.

    You right wingers can't think this stuff thru. That's why you never solve any problems.

    You can't solve the economic problems we have now with tax cuts.

    We need more jobs. The sooner you admit this, the sooner I stop thinking you are a fucking idiot.

    You miss the point bobo, 'jobs' don't spring up from thin air or the voting boothe.

    Jobs come from INDUSTRY, are created by BUSINESS and maintained by CORPORATIONS.

    What three things in that last sentance are the left hostile too? :eusa_drool:
