If your view of children is that they will "derail your career", do everyone a favor, and don't have children.

The stats and headlines regularly reported by the liberal media are a joke. Journalistic integrity? Nearly nonexistent today. Look at U6 - a much more realistic view of the unemployment picture. From 1994 - 2008, it ranged between 7 and 11%. Any guesses as to the average since then? Try 16%. Fantastic job creation picture, right? Also rarely mentioned is the labor participation rate. After 20 years of consistent rates between 66 and 67%, the unemployed dropping off of the "official" count have driven it below 64% in just 4 years. The lapdog media would never dare highlight these statistics, but they are readily available on the BLS website to anyone with the guts and honesty to look at them. Cheers.
Red licorice is out, too. Don't want to be accused of being a commie, do you?
Wish more people would look at U6 - it's readily available to anyone not afraid of the truth.
My latest favorite (thankfully I do not live in the city) - Chicago alderman George Cardenas wants residents and businesses to pay a $5/month "safety and security fee" so the CPD can hire more officers. So apparently, the already-burdensome city, county, and state taxes are insufficient to keep Illinoisans safe. Chicago residents may soon have to pay a "fee" for their security. Don't you just love big government?

Still amazed that TH can't keep this craap off the boards. Disappointed, TH.
Did anyone say they supported OPEC? We've been trying for decades to get more domestic fuel, but a handful of enviro-nuts and their beholden elected officials have not let that happen.
Slight correction - WE bought your Volt. You paid the lion's share out of choice, and the gov't robbed the rest of us to pay the balance. Great for you, not so great for us.
