Thanks Tom, too many people just follow what they see on TV as fact- and the network owners DEPEND on the misinformed masses. I pray this year is the year the truth gets out. Merry Christmas to all!
The Community-organizer-in-chief speaks again. What a poor excuse for a representative of the leadership of the greatest country on earth.

The Path to a Permanent GOP Majority

I have the answer! Let's do what Obama did. We'll recruit conservative Canadians to immigrate to the U.S.! We should find a bunch in Alberta! What do ya say, ay? On a more serious note, for the life of me I can't understand why no one, Republican or Democrat, is pushing the Dislocated Worker program. I was on it for a while and it was a great way to get a job. Roughly, the program is for people who have lost their jobs to do the poor economy, i.e. someone had to go out of business. The government pays half the wage of the worker for a set amount of time, at the time I was in it was 4 years. You get a full wage, the employer pays half and saves a bundle while the government picks up the other half. I've written about this before on other sites but no one seems to pick up on it. Can you imagine how many jobs could have been created if they used this tactic instead of Solyndra (spelling?) or other government bail outs? Makes me crazy.
I can't believe someone is not taking advantage of this situation by showing the lists of thousands if not tens of thousands of redundant offices in the federal government that should be at the least furloughed and at the most done away with at this time! I worked for 2 and a half years as a temp worker for the FAA in Alaska where we worked in remote sites throughout Alaska. We would have to go to dispersing to get our per Diem checks for paying for whatever food and lodging was available in the villages we worked around. I would pass by offices with titles on the doors that read, "Secretary to the Secretary of the Secretary of , , , " ! Imagine throughout the COUNTRY how much waste is going on in government offices that no one has an official count of!
This news adds to the ongoing disaster in the White House so much I have to fight from blowing a gasket. Why do I think there is a request for more funding letter sitting in someone's word processing software just waiting for a new "To" heading? The ever-growing inverted pyramid structure of our government is too many bureaucrats in charge of fewer and fewer tax payer's hard-earned dollars.
