Re  sidebar: Republican Leaders Distancing Themselves From Michael Steele, "Working Around" Him Channeling money to organizations Steele doesn't control, like the NRCC and the NRSC... Off the cuff theory: The Voyeur stuff was leaked in order to put new restrictions on how Steele spends money, further making him NRC Chief in name only

 

 

I guess it really is time for him to go even though it is late in the game.  He is hurting more than helping.

You know, if I hadn’t been expecting this, I would say it was unexpected.  In fact, the WSJ even makes note that it was unexpected.  Now that’s unexpected… I mean, that they would say that.

 

But they did manage to see the silver lining on the mega-storm spawning storm cloud – “Treasuries Up!”  The light skinned guy saves Wall Street!  Yea!!!!

 

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that there are any open jobs at all out there.  I have it on excellent authority that people are actually being rubbed out, liquidated, sent to sleep with the fishes, what have you, if they are lucky enough to have a job.  

 

Watch your back.

March 31 (Bloomberg) -- Companies in the U.S. unexpectedly cut payrolls in March, according to data from a private report based on payrolls.

The 23,000 decline was the smallest in two years and followed a revised 24,000 drop the prior month, data from ADP Employer Services showed today.

I never expected that the jobs numbers would be unexpected.

I thought the symbol of destruction was a sun setting behind a striped field.

 

(Actually, the symbolism in the Obama logo is interesting. I assume people thought that it was a rising sun, the O, and now we know that he intended to manage the demise of America, so it really is a setting sun.)

I never expected that the jobs numbers would be unexpected.

Posted by: TheQuietMan at March 31, 2010 09:30 AM (1Jaio)

But get this:

Since employment as measured by the ADP Report was not restrained in February by the effects of inclement weather, today’s figure does not incorporate a weather-related rebound that could be present in this month’s BLS data. In addition, today’s figure does not include any federal hiring in March for the 2010 Census. For both these reasons, it is reasonable to expect that Friday’s employment figure from the BLS will be stronger than today’s estimate in the ADP National Employment Report.

So you can expect unemployment numbers to go own Friday.

Remember all the discussion about about Mark Kirk as the GOP candidate in IL...and smoewe should get behind him becuase he w s better than the alternative of having a Dem??

I said be careful what you wish for..especially with his stances on healthcare and cap and trade..the latter he already flipped on once

Now he's backing off his pledge to run on repealing the healthcare bill...now let's see what he does on cap and tax again now that he has the GOP slot

“The economic recovery has not been long enough or strong enough along the way yet to produce the kind of rapid employment that people are hoping for,” Joel Prakken, chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers LLC in St. Louis, which produces the figures with ADP, said in a conference call with reporters after the report.

Funny, just yesterday the news was chirping about how consumer confidence is up because the job market is recovering so well.

He's not opening anything to anyone. Let's not go all full retard here.

This is all bullshit par excellence... something to fool the Rubes and push up his numbers

In realkityville: no offshore drilling (exploration is not drilling) in these areas for 10 years, at least. If ever, after all the EPA and envirowhacko lawsuits.

No ANWR, no ridiculous end to onshore lease sales in much of the southern and northtern Rockies (as ordered by Salazar last year)- stuff that would enable actual drilling and oil production almost immediately.

This is just a scam to protect the Dims and some RINOs to push through Cap n' Trade, which would begin immediately.

32 WT?

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 33% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8

He gained 5 points overnight!?

33 From Putin's perspective - Iranians with nukes (or almost with) is likely to lead to crisis in the Persian Gulf. That sends oil prices up, make him and many other Russians rich. Long term, he knows exactly where they are and can pull the rug out whenever he wants. DinnerJacket is just another pawn in the Great Game. Note, when Israel had an issue with Iran - where did they go first - Moscow.

So the ABC radio news feed has been blasting us with reports about a christian militia in Michigan that was planning to shoot a cop and then bomb the resulting funeral.  Apparently, they're christians, being all militia-y.  They go on to report these militias... wait, sorry, did we say militias, meaning more than one?  Well, everyone knows those christians are all militia members plotting to overthrow the US government... oh, did we say overthrow the US government?  Well, shooting a cop and bombing the resulting funeral is pretty much the same thing, you know.  Look, let's not get all distracted about the minutia.  The main thing is that they're christians, in a militia, being all christian-y and stuff. 

Now, compare and contrast with coverage over various other militias of undetermined ethnic extraction with no religious ties whatsoever worth reporting.

And it shouldn't need to be said, but for the MSM folk acting like drooling retards with a new pudding cup now that they've finally got a christian militia to put in the news, those assholes should be fried.  Or whatever it is that Michigan does with its human debris, since I doubt they've got a death penalty in that enlightened part of the country.

True, Vic.  I should instead say that assuming the MSM is reporting this story accurately and these idiots really were planning to shoot a cop and then bomb the funeral, they should be fried.  I guess there's still some part of me that thinks the media spins actual facts, rather than just making up crap.  Despite evidence to the contrary.  Hard habit to break, though I'm getting a lot of practice.

Still no job...but I got busted by der polizei last night.

Still no job though.  Might be time to start doing the black market type job -- dog walking, taking care of old widows, cleaning house, tutoring kids -- all money under the table type stuff.  I'll work for groceries.  That seems to be the way our country is headed.

And I ran into my first foaming at the mouth kool aide drinker (I've met kool aide drinkers, but not a completel rabid one, not face to face).  Idolizes Cindy Sheehan and the owe, believes every bit of hatefulness the media says about right wing hateful haters hating.  When people like that are likening somebody like me to mister Duke, then you know we have some unbalanced people out there (I'd hate to know what she'd think of somebody who was an actual Republican and/or conservative).  This is not going to end well.

I did have fun putting her some knowledge about how the "liberal" political movement in this country sold out and backstabbed actual tenents of liberalism and how many people needed to wake up and realize that they were being hoodwinked however -- which just made her even angrier; the truth is a hrad thing to take in.

I find it telling that 5 of the 9 people were all from the same family.  I am going to go out on a limb here and say that no actual crime took place.

This will be another case of "crime created by government" and the conspiracy charge is supported by something really minor and stupid.  Remember for a "conspiracy" there must be an overt act that is made in furthering the illegal plan. 

I guess we will see many months from now as this works its way through the system. Watch the charges get dropped down to a misdemeanor of "entering a government building with evil intent".

70 I still can't understand why the US does not produce more from their oilshales. Again, I reiterize that offshore drilling is 6 to 10 times more expensive than the sure thing oil shales that are a proven reserve. Enviro wackos rule the roost with their lawsuits and this offshore exploration is a pipe dream. 2 trillion barrels at 80 bucks per, looks like another pipe dream. East coast drilling is also a big fat target for hurricanes.Just doesn't make sense.
