bro that's job losses. all those people have already lost jobs, there's only one point of negative job loss (ie job gains)... people can't lose the same job twice if they're not rehired. this doesn't prove shit, and i'm probably slightly more leftwing in the american books

^^ What he said^^

there are few jobs left to loose.... Also the unemployment numbers are skewed because for many the unemployment benefits (how they determine unemployment) has run out, and or people have given up completely and are no longer considered "unemployed" but rather "Unmotivated"

*reminds you that most of the people who lost their job found new ones, and that these are in fact greatly improving numbers*

Not mad, rightwinger has a J O B. and unlike your commission based crap, I know how much I will make this year and the economy slumps and people loosing their jobs don't effect me directly.

I just don't like listening to idiots kissing O-Negro's ass for doing nothing or in some cases making things worse.

Don't get me wrong all this crap started with Dubya, and I know that, but O-Negro has not helped anything other than selling us further into debt and further down the river. And for this he gets a Nobel?

Hope and change means "I hope I have some change left in my pocket after taxes."

Whoa wait a minute! Republicans blocking him? For the entire first year of his term in office (D)emoncrabs controlled the house the senate and the white house. Up until a few weeks ago the (R)etards couldnt even filabuster anything.

They have had complete control for a year and what have they accomplished? Nadda goddamn thing, except lining their own pockets and giving away the farm.

Don't drink the koolaid Rog, look, listen, make your own decisions not what NBC/ABC/CBS (or Fox for that matter) tells you.

ok, i'll admit that i've been out of touch a bit recently (what with the no cable thing, and no morning commute of npr). my opinions have (mostly) been generated by watching jon stewart, the Ultimate Authority on All Things Political (and silly faces).
from what i understand the d's have been a large, diverse group of people with varying opinions - and naturally not everyone agrees with everything (as it should be). so that nullifies their majority. the r's have been portrayed as a homogeneous solid block of anti-democrat.

so whatever way you slice it, we still have a 3 branch system. can't hang everything around obama's neck (or congresses as much as i would like to).

Great article in the Seattle Times that I thought applied to this discussion.

Quote:
I got an e-mail the other day that depressed me.

It concerned a piece I recently did that mentioned Henry Johnson, who was awarded the French Croix de Guerre in World War I for single-handedly fighting off a company of Germans (some accounts say there were 14, some say almost 30, the ones I find most authoritative say there were about two dozen) who threatened to overrun his post.

Johnson managed this despite the fact that he was only 5-foot-4 and 130 pounds, despite the fact that his gun had jammed, despite the fact that he was wounded 21 times.

My mention of Johnson's heroics drew a rebuke from a fellow named Ken Thompson, which I quote verbatim and in its entirety:

"Hate to tell you that blacks were not allowed into combat intell (sic) 1947, that fact. World War II ended in 1945. So all that feel good, one black man killing two dozen Nazi, is just that, PC bull."

In response, my assistant, Judi Smith, sent Mr. Thompson proof of Johnson's heroics: a link to his page on the Web site of Arlington National Cemetery. She thought this settled the matter.

Thompson's reply? "There is no race on headstones and they didn't come up with the story in tell (sic) 2002."

Judi: "I guess you can choose to believe Arlington National Cemetery or not."

Thompson: "It is what it is, you don't believe either ... "

At this point, Judi forwarded me their correspondence, along with a despairing note. She is probably somewhere drinking right now.

You see, like me, she can remember a time when facts settled arguments. This is back before everything became a partisan shouting match, back before it was permissible to ignore or deride as "biased" anything that didn't support your worldview.

If you and I had an argument and I produced facts from an authoritative source to back me up, you couldn't just blow that off. You might try to undermine my facts, might counter with facts of your own, but you couldn't just pretend my facts had no weight or meaning.

But that's the intellectual state of the union these days, as evidenced by all the people who still don't believe the president was born in Hawaii or that the planet is warming. And by Mr. Thompson, who doesn't believe Henry Johnson did what he did.

I could send him more proof, I suppose. Johnson is lauded in history books ("Before the Mayflower" by Lerone Bennett Jr., "The Dictionary of American Negro Biography" by Rayford Logan and Michael Winston) and in contemporaneous accounts (The Saturday Evening Post, The New York Times). I could also point out that blacks have fought in every war in American history, though before Harry Truman desegregated the military in 1948, they did so in Jim Crow units. Also, there were no Nazis in World War I.

But those are "facts," and the whole point here is that facts no longer mean what they once did. I suppose I could also ignore him. But you see, Ken Thompson is not just some isolated eccentric. No, he is the Zeitgeist personified.

To listen to talk radio, to watch TV pundits, to read a newspaper's online message board, is to realize that increasingly, we are a people estranged from critical thinking, divorced from logic, alienated from even objective truth. We admit no ideas that do not confirm us, hear no voices that do not echo us, sift out all information that does not validate what we wish to believe.

I submit that any people thus handicapped sow the seeds of their own decline; they respond to the world as they wish it were rather to the world as it is. That's the story of the Iraq war.

But objective reality does not change because you refuse to accept it. The fact that you refuse to acknowledge a wall does not change the fact that it's a wall.

And you shouldn't have to hit it to find that out.


Here it is all bundled up nice and neat:

Hope and change indeed.

Dubya was a fuckwit because he drowned his brain in alchohol and cocaine when he was governor of Texas. I lived in Austin when he was Gov, it was amazing how many people just looked the other way when the Coke dealer showed up at the back door. Everyone knew about it, especially those in the "Drug Culture" but no one ever said anything.
