propasaurus: Boehner, two years ago:House Speaker John Boehner dismissed concerns about federal job cuts Tuesday, saying he believes the federal government can't afford to keep so many workers.The Ohio Republican was asked at his weekly press conference about the prospect of federal job cuts if a House GOP plan to trim $100 billion in government spending ever passes."Over the last two years since President Obama has taken office, the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs," Boehner said. "And if some of those jobs are lost in this, so be it.Link
Lionel Mandrake: Do you mean the same jobs report that's been all over the TV and the net today? That one?Your blog sucks.
WorldCitizen: Gay rights gaining momentum? Hey look, jobs report!
AngryDragon: I'm all for gay marriage. Universally, no restrictions. All rights, benefits, and protections conferred on heterosexual couples should be available to gay couples. Right now.Then can we farking stop talking about it and focus everyone on the puppeteers who are financially raping us all? Maslow's hierarchy of needs.[www.consciousaging.com image 850x570]Gay marriage, abortion, drugs and all of the other divisive issues being jammed down our throats start at the "Belongingness and Love needs" and go up. Social Security, Healthcare, jobs, the environment, peace, and education are in the "Safety needs" and lower. WE NEED TO FOCUS ON THESE THINGS.
Fluorescent Testicle: WorldCitizen: Gay rights gaining momentum? Hey look, jobs report!This.Not that this is a good angle for them to try. Which party was it that ran on a platform of JOBS JOBS JOBS, only to obstruct any jobs bills into being shelved while simultaneously flooding the country with social agenda bills and sixty-odd attempts to repeal Obamacare, again?
Alphax: Republican controlled states have gone berserk lately. I heard tonight that the Virginia AG, and likely governor candidate, is trying to bad sodomy outright, in defiance of past Supreme Court decisions on the topic. And I think I heard something about one state trying to add a 2 year delay to divorce.
AngryDragon: We are being distracted while the country is being looted.
randomjsa: The labor force participation rate, number of people on disability, and number of people on welfare should tell you pretty much all you need to know about actual job numbers in this country.
FC Exile: When will you people realize that Obama is an abject failure?
JerkyMeat: Ok, shiaty little capitalist scum, if your business plan doesn't work because you can't handle the responsibility of providing health care, then don't go into business, and go work for someone instead.Chances are that you are probably an ego freak who can't work with authority, and NOT some superstar business person with a winning plan for a profitable business.
Alphax: Oh, and the Arkansas senate decided to announce that they're not supporting the Equal Rights Amendment. Just so everyone knows.
Alphax: Ah, it's North Carolina talking about a 2 year wait period on divorce.http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2013/04/01/n-c-lawmakers-propose-two-year-w ai ting-period-before-divorce/
Alphax: FC Exile: When will you people realize that Obama is an abject failure?At?
Delay: It's because the jobs report was expected.Most of the recent job growth has been retail. After two years (2011 and 2012) of being reduced from 6.2% to 4.2%, the payroll tax went back to 6.2% effective January, 2013. The increase in the payroll tax hurt retail spending. Everyone expected it.
