And, the disability qualification threshold has been lowered such that one in four in one county are collecting disability? Why the soldiers returning from the civil war did not have that high a percentage of "walking wounded"! As Drifter33 writes that is so much BuLlShi t!! Most readers could not for the life of them name 10 senators or 10 Congressmen from the House of Representatives! That's because they get elected on lofty promises but upon arrival just join those who have made a career (read sanctuary) of just keeping their heads down. Life is exactly the same for a Republican who does not make enough waves to get the Democrats to mount a crushing campaign against his re-election as one who crusades to help his party win!

All the decks are stacked against Republicans for at least the next 50 years! They will never see another level playing field in their lifetime and if they are too dense to recognize it!

54% of the country wants the Illegals sent home! With a little leadership you would find there is a silent majority of two thirds who would vote for that. But Republicans are such amateurs as to think Tokyo Rose is on their side!

Not one Republican is willing to risk his popularity rating to save the country! It begs the question: Are we just as well off without them?

A US Senate who serves as a reelection Committee for a Liberal Democrat President, Dirty Tricks? An Enemies List? Cover-ups? An “Unscrupulious“Enforcer and cover-up artist for an Attorney General who does selective Illegal Immigrant prosecutions?

Remember Janet Reno? She was a Woman, Can’t criticize her! Eric Holder, the “Dark”Minority? Can’t criticize him!

And, we expect a pacifist, Billie Graham type Mormon Ministers to win a cage fight with a “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” Chicago thug?

Just look at the naïve Paul Ryan who thinks things in Washington can be won on their merits!

Half, directly from previous employment of a Democrat politician; Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd, Chris Matthews, George Stephanopoulous?

The Supreme Court reaffirms your right to have a gun to defend yourself. But exercise that right and some ambitious Democrat Prosecutor who plans to run as a Democrat Congressman (and will need the DNC campaign money), and some liberal Judge who wants to be appointed to a higher court by a Gun Control Administration, will ruin your life and reputation, if not put you in chains for using the wrong colored gunpowder!

The Republican party's Unsinkable Ship hit the ice berg more than a generation ago and because there is not yet water around their ankles, they are planning to use the cups from the afternoon Tea to do the bailing!

First, you must admit there is a fifth column of cheap converts who's votes can be bought with a few pieces of silver (rent subsidies, food stamps, endless unemployment, injury free disability for life etc.), Obamaphones, Obamacare which the stupid still think will be free, and free meals at school which surpluses all thoes Snoopie lunch pails and Donald Duck Thermos bottles! That's just for the wake-up call!!

Jobless claims stopped their record-breaking, fearsome, FOUR-WEEK job-creation rampage today as the BLS reported that initial claim rose- again- by more than economists expected.
“First-time jobless claims rose by 16,000 to 357,000 in the week ended March 23,” reports Reuters, “the highest level in more than a month, Labor Department data showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 48 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for an increase to 340,000. The four-week average climbed from the lowest level in five years.”

Economists, says Reuters, were expecting claims to come in between 330,000 at the low end and 355,000...
