Is that what you know ... or what you believe? This is the real federal data released in November that found the teen birthrate dropped 9% from 2009 to 2010, to a historic low of 34.3 births per 1,000 teens. That's down 44% from 61.8/1000 in 1991. The all-time high was 96.3/1000 during the Baby Boom year of 1957, years before sex education in schools I might add!

Obama Is a Big Spender…Just Like Bush

Unlike Obama, Hoover was successful? By 1932, the 4th year of his presidency, unemployment had reached 24% ... contrast that to Obama's unemployment going from 7.9 up to 9.9 and now at 8.2 %. Exactly how would you consider Hoover's policies as being successful, if anything, it would explain why he was crushed in 1932! Just as an aside, Spain unemployment rate was 8.3% before the crash in 2008, their government went with an austerity program and their unemployment is now at 24% and has needed a massive bank bailout from the European union ... I'm guessing you must also consider that as a successful economic policy?
Watergate still fascinates me, here is a candidate who will go on to crush his opponent by 18 million votes carrying 49 out of 50 states with 520 electoral votes to 17. Yet so paranoid that he allows his re-election committee to break in to democratic headquarters not just once but 3 times to find out what? I can not fathom why none of his advisors just told Nixon that really, there is was absolutely no upside from tapping their phones! Pretty much like this column John wrote in trying to compare what happened 40 years ago to today ... completely and totally pointless.

Really ... so that was Obama dressed up as Bush that came to congress asking for the TARP bailout? Just as it was the Obama-Leach act and not the Gramm-Leach (Citicorp Relief Act) that removed the silly barrier of the Glass-Seagall act that kept banks from gambling depositors money in the stock market! So what else is happening in your alternate universe?

Atheists, who make up somewhere between 3-14% of the population make up just 0.2% of the prison population. Christians, on the other hand, who make up 81% of the population make up 84% of the prison population. In fact, a Christian is at least 15 times more likely on average to end up in jail than an atheist. What does this tell us about the usefulness of the Bible as a moral guide?

And the answer is? For the republican party to give out their new party plank at the convention to be all entitlements stop the moment Romney is sworn into office January 20th! You can moan and groan about SS all you want but threatening to end it for the most conservative and consistent voters ... the elderly, would be the end of the republican party!

I worked for HTM in Colorado, it started out as a couple guys in a garage filling a simple niche, when a company needed to expand production for an electronic board. Instead of hiring more people and building more infrastructure for an electronic device that at the time only had an 18 month life before it was obsolete ... we would build it. Then SMTC (Bain) came along promising more business expertise to take the company to the next level by expanding our production into other countries like Mexico. Some of us even went down there to set up their lines and train them, then SMTC shut our still profitable plant down throwing 450 people out of work ... why pay workers $12/hr when you can make more profit with workers at $12/day?
