Does my heart good to know there are still kids that care.


How soon before the government decides that it is best suited to control carrying of dependent individuals? This volunteerism is denying a union member a job!

Yesterday someone posted the hourly spending under Pelosi. Anyone have a clue how to find it?

Anybody believe the unemployment number?

Nahhh, it will be updated when no one is looking. I am touting it as a result of the election in November.

WHy not, that's what they do.


Jane, from Drudge's "Recent Headlines" it's here:

Pelosi's Final Debt Tab: $5.3 Trillion Added During Speakership -- $3.67 Billion/Day...

Don't just stand there, do something.

It's all sweet, but with the child and his father's medical conditions, the family really needs one level housing, I think.

In evaluating sovereign debt a few variables.

2)Deficit to GDP

"Anybody believe the unemployment number?"


Sure. If you study the Gallup chart closely you can trace out the effectiveness of the monetary and fiscal policy changes made by the Obama Administration and the Fed under Bernanke. I believe that the highlight of the chart is the fact that, while the underemployment level was a simply unsustainable 19.1% on January 2, 2010, the intensive efforts by President Obama and Chairman Bernanke were completely successful in moving the rate to a much more acceptable 19.1% as of today. This single chart reflects the efficacy of the combined efforts of our wonderful Federal establishment better than any other that I have ever seen.

(Any comparisons of the chart to an EEG showing brain death are both unwarranted and unwanted by the Federal establishment)

But that's just how I ride.

If I couldn't climb to the second floor, I'd sleep on the first floor.


The unemployment number was helped by a decline in labor force participation. If you've given up actively looking, you're no longer "unemployed." How nice is that?


I had neighbors in a similar predicament. They had the resources to add an elevator but the next door neighbor fought them fearing that the elevator tower would reduce the sunlight for their plantings.

I can't tell you the number of nights I walked past those plantings with a water bottle full of roundup.


haajf, you are a man (woman?) after my own heart.
