Default Well .....

It now looks like we at least have a shot at defeating Bush, assuming
that OBL is actually dead, and not in some holding cell waiting to be
'captured' at just the right moment.

This state is a bastion of right wing nonsence and pr-republican BS,
but Bush Jr. is even in trouble HERE. Because there is MASSIVE unemployment, and he hasnt done diddly.

Any comments Raed?

What the hell are you Dems running on about massive unemployment? Please go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, under the Department of Labor. You will see that unemployment sits at 5.6%. It was at 5.5% when Clinton was in. You said the economy was fine when Clinton was in but now 5.6% its MASSIVE UNEMPLOYMENT? Get a clue!! I guess you Dems think that if you say something after a while people will believe it to be true. Thank god not all Americans are as dumb as you take them to be. When you say stuff like this it just makes people more aware that you are running on about nonsense. Unemployment is not doing worse. My family income puts me in the middle class bracket, and guess what? We are doing fine! My small business which I started this past year is flourishing! My husband has had a pay increase and a promotion! My god, the Bush administration is just doing terrible *sarcasm injected here* This networks pointed out how the dems are saying that it is worse when it isn't on tv. Shame on you folks, you are so blinded with hatred that you are going to run your own campaign into the ground with this senseless drivel.

Chiteng we've discussed this before. Unemployment is geographical. Employment is good in most major cities and cities within a 30 mile radius. I work with people that drive 60 to 80 miles to work one way. There is no work in the boonies.

There was an article in the AJC about a girl with a college degree that couldn't find a job and wound up homeless. She said she wound up at the shelter with her Gucci bag and designer shoes. The article goes on to read how she couldn't find a job in her "field" of sales. She said she landed 3 jobs and was laid off from each within weeks. Now that right there tells me she probably was a loosey worker or something. The fact of the matter is she landed 3 jobs that she couldn't hold onto and wants to blame Bush.

Second it tells me that she wasn't willing to do what ever it took to survive till she could land the job of her dreams. She talks about how she watched them repo her car from the homeless shelter and how her cell phone was cut off and it was hard for her to make or receive calls about employment.

Bottom line is she sat on her ass doing nothing living on unemployment until she realized "oops, I better do something".

Jobs are out there..save that whiney song and dance for the liberals. If a person is above slinging burgers or waiting tables to survive then I have no pity on them whatsoever.

That just tells me you have not suffered. Because you would not say that
if you HAD.

YOU try going from a 100k+ income to a 35k income, and a spouse unemployed.

And I am one of the LUCKY ones, who saw it comming. BECAUSE,
every time a republican is elected, this shit happens.
So I jumped off the gravy train to a job that is much less volitile.
My freinds who told me I was 'over-reacting' and my wife, refused
to take my advice. They have been unemployed now for two years.

Gas will be at $3.00 a gallon and you STILL wont question the admin.

No, I have been doing fine under the Bush admin. I was unemployed under Clinton's administration. I didn't expect the president to find me a job, I took care of myself. When one door closes, I look for another one. This has become a pathetic society. Well I should say, pathetic democrats. Explain to me how one tenth of a percent in the unemployment rate is that big of a difference. It isn't, it is just a lame attempt to blame Bush for everything. If you got a disease or your dog died, I am sure that is his fault as well. My life and the paths I choose are my doing. I don't buy this unemployed for two years. If you really want work, you work. It may not be what you want, but if you don't fill the market niche, don't sit on your butt making the rest of America pay you till the job you wants comes along. My Dad retired from his lifelong job in the military and couldn't get the job he wanted in civil service. He worked as a janitor for several months until he got a job he wanted. He did not sit at home collecting unemployment. I can quit my job tomorrow and claim to be unemployed. I don't buy that. Nor do a lot of Americans. The unemployment rate is the same as it was under Clinton, get over it and try and find a real issue to ramble on about.

Except that it ISNT. I agree that is the published figure.

I didnt say 'I' was unemployed for two years. I said they were.

Your empathy is overwhelming. I hope one day that you become aware
of what is going on.

What a waste, read my message. The company I worked for went belly up when Clinton was in office. My husband wasn't doing so well at the time. I lost my job and he ended up taking a lesser paying job, we went from 65,000 to 25,000. Did we sit and moan about it? No, I took a part time job, which is what I could get at the time and my husband took a second job doing manual labor. That is why I don't have empathy. Don't complain about going from 100k to 35k if you aren't willing to pick up a second job or your wife can't take a lesser one. Why should I feel sorry for someone who is just too good to take a lesser job or who is not willing to go the extra mile? If you aren't happy with your income or lifestyle, do something about it, we did.

We ended up moving across the whole country and starting at a very low salary for a position that we knew had a load of potential, moving to a smaller town that had a lower cost of living. I took another job and just this year started my own business. We are now living very comfortably but we are here because WE took care of ourselves, we did not blame Clinton for the position we were in. It was not easy, we had bill collectors calling so don't give me the empathy BS, been there done that. Don't come here expecting empathy because your wife hasn't worked in two years and you are not happy with your income. Do something about it. You obviously have enough money to maintain a computer, EQ, plenty of time to come here when you could be working another job. Me and my husband spent the time working our butts off and we are now reaping the rewards of eight years of hard work. Sit there and do nothing, and nothing will come to you, then just sit and blame the president for your predicament. That is totally lame.
