    Its funny the looney left didnt even want to call anyone a terrorist just a few years back calling everyone who did a “FEAR MONGER”,now they are drone happy.Dana Mil(i)bank is surprised there isnt more protest from the left on this;folks forget nice guy Bill Clinton dropped tons of bombs on Bosnia circumventing the will of the United Nations–“I think he killed some people”not very marches in the street–the lefty lap dogs go along with anything– thus the success of liberal politicians.

    Good advice, and don’t mess with Robert either. :wink:

  • usa8888

    This just in: the Stone La Pierre says gun background checks won’t work…for the same reason 2 and 2 doesn’t equal 4…….

    Go figure–the guy was all for them 10 years ago…..

  • usa8888

    This just in: USA’s 2013 economic forcast for the US bases on median estimates of 45 economists–go to USA MONEY–very good forecast…

  • usa8888

    That’s USA TODAY—-MONEY–2013 US Economic forecast….

  • Bsotgnw


    Re:USA888 will tell you laying of one full time to hire two part time is not part of the reason unemployment is headind down. He/she is one eccomomic genius (self professed).

    Featherweight Alert !
    – – –
    Forecasts based on a USA TODAY survey of 46 top economists conducted Feb. 1-5.

    52% of economists predict unemployment rate won’t get to 6.5% until 2015
    18% until 2016
    5% until 2017 or later
    THAT’S 75%

    ****Economists have determined an ideal unemployment rate range of 4 to 5.6 percent

    The first half of 2013 is expected to be sluggish as government spending cuts dampen growth and a payroll tax increase crimps consumer spending.

    Inflation is shown on the graphs as going up in 2013 & 2014

    Are you more or less optimistic of a grand Washington bargain ?
    51% the same 42% less optimistic 7% more optimistic

    Housing does look better & chances are jobs will improve in the second half of 2013.

    This Recovery is the worst since WW 11, & , the lipstick on the pig is that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the United States contracted 0.10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 over the previous quarter. Economists agree the ideal GDP growth rate is more than 2%, but less than 4%.

    Night all.

    Stan T:
    Why bother to capture them they would just lawyer up and get an ACLU pupet.

  • bob

    glad to see Nancy Grace making a bit of a rebound but still pretty low,
    Evening express slowly climbing in the ratings

  • usa8888

    It looks like the economy is on the right track, if we can just keep the right wing fringe from obstructing job creation in the future. 45 key economists agree the forecast is pretty good!!!!!!!!
    Fox news has not reported this yet….

  • usa8888

    DD–the recovery is the worst since WWII because this recession is the WORST since the 30’s…and the right fringe understands nothing about economics–they want to cut spending in a recession–exactly the opposite of what should be done…the right is responsible for prolonging the recession!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    DD–call the right wingers you in the House and tell them to stop OBSTRUCTING!!!!!!!!

  • Bobbyv

    I have to ask again: WHEN does the President own this? He can’t just own it if/when it gets better. That is not what a leader does. I think Abe Lincoln, FDR and others had things a bit tougher and I don’t think they blamed everyone else during their entire presidencies. If BO cannot handle dealing with the the other party then let Biden or someone else do it. Be a LEADER.

  • usa8888

    He will take 100% ownership when the far right fringe in the House stops blocking job growth. I think now the public agrees with Obama’s economic policies (and other policies, as well) according to all polls, but the right wfinge continues to disregard what the public wants and what the moderate GOP want in order to try to ruin Obama and the US economy….

  • 1966

  • Bobbyv


    He got his healthcare, he got his fiscal cliff deal, he got his tax increases, and still it is not his? Any time there is the slightest bit of good news he gets the credit, but no blame for any bad news. How does that work for the rest of us in our jobs? Heads I win, tails you lose….

  • usa8888

    What Obama wants is his infrastructure program for job creation, some tax loop hole changes, some defense cuts–which would not compromise security, some entitlement cuts (without hurting seniors much)–a grand program that is set for longer term..and that would do it… but the right wing fringe is blocking this. The moderate GOP is on board…

  • Bobbyv


    No President gets everything they want, even the popular ones. I have no beef with him governing the way he wants, he believes what he believes, but a true leader governs for everyone. The other party, Dem or Rep, are not called the opposition party for nothing. BBT, have a good night.

    Look up God made a democrat. By Dannial Greenfield, good stuff.
