ModerateConservative, Just how Kra, Kra are you? You know what helps an economy. More regulations like Obamacare. Regulating Dust in the work place Banning Oil in the Gulf and on government land Banning business for political disagree (Chick fil) Banning Coal during winter More regulations Centralizing power into a few banks (Dodd/Frank) Allowing banks to invest all of their money in government bonds Oh wait, none of that helps an economy.

JC, did you know that a Shell deep drilling containment dome designed to work in the calm Arctic waters, collapsed and imploded like an aluminum can when tested in Puget Sound. Should we eliminate all those useless safety regs for oil company ocean drilling equipment? Can you imagine a hypothetical where this might create a disaster of huge proportions?

New numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show the unemployment rate has dropped from 7.9 percent to 7.7 percent.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 146,000 in November, and the unemployment rate edged down to 7.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in retail trade, professional and business services, and healthcare.

Economists had predicted the unemployment rate would go up as a result of Hurricane Sandy. BLS said the storm didn't have a large impact on the new statistics.

Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the Northeast coast...
