Sorry Al according to BLS (bls.gov) it was 7.6. your fact check is a bit off.
Al, You are the one always wanting facts. Maybe before to write something you may want to check your facts. Unemployment January ,2009 went to 7.6% not 8.1 and most of Bushes years it was around 5% that is until the House and senate went to the democrats in 2007, also gas went up during the summer 2008 then dropped sharply by the end of the year, $1.74 average on January 20 2009.
Limric, yup, and we managed to get ink all over our hands. Really dates us, some of the youngsters now don't even know what a fountain pen is. We also learned how to read write and add. The young don't even have a clue how to give change without a calculator.
Off topic!. Sheila Jackson Lee said on the congress floor that our constitution is 400 years old! That can be our laugh of the day.
No. limric, it appears he is talking about lost to the Ukraine. The Ukraine looses not the U.S. It also may mean the Russian are ready to take over all of the Ukraine or at least all of the western Ukraine.
Dude, I got a big kick out of your march 10 8:25 pm post, so I decided to see which one of you posted the most on the Car Alarm toon, You posted 35 times and PT posted 30 times. Must be PT stands up the most.
Al, I beg to differ with you the House serves a two year term. If I am wrong then Wiki is wrong and every other link. I believe we all learned that in third grade, except you, you must have been sleeping.
Al, I believe all house of Reps. are elected every 2 years so you are wrong about Issa not being up for election until 2016. If he was a senator you may be right.
You are right about Pelosi, she has no brains but she is a great bully and that is all that is needed. The biggest joke was when she said "we have to vote for it to see what is in it" then the Democrats followed her directive and did just that. Democrats own that one.
So now it is going to take 7 years to fully implement the health care bill. Go figure. Obama made new rules to get his democrats through 2016. Of course I believe the independents will see through that since they don't seem to be as stupid as Obama thinks the American people are.
Max, Your attack on Ike and her child on your post of 8:31 was uncalled for. You come across as nothing but a mean spirited person that is insecure.
Ike, I think you are wrong about anyone putting Putin up as a leader to praise. They are trying to say he is thumbing his nose at the rest of the world. Personally I believe he is nothing but a big bully. Further more people need to give Obama and the EU a chance. It is no secret I am not a big fan of Obama but we all need to step back and wait to see what he is going to do. Then make our judgment. No boots on the ground.
