As well they should.
And now…. the REAL Cartoon of the Day!
[click image to enlarge]
Have a nice day!
As William Voegeli put it in Never Enough: America’s Limitless Welfare State, “Liberals don’t want the government to grow indefinitely. They just want it to be bigger than it is right now. The corollary of this stance is liberals’ refusal even to entertain questions on the dimensions of a welfare state that is exactly the right size.”
Reports indicate a total of over 660,000 Government jobs lost since the start of 2009 to date. It would appear your figures are incorrect.
“Since December 2010, including August 2012, 358,000 jobs were LOST in the government sector. This is an average of 17,900 government sector jobs LOST per month over the past 20 months.”
(The numbers above represent the latest revisions, which often differ from the preliminary numbers announced by the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) on the first Friday of a given month.)
Still better than losing 790,000 jobs per month!
Rvn… the stat’s a a litlle misleading because what it does not say is that those numbers are for local and state government. The federal government has actually grown by a few hundred thousand employees. The real problem is that the average federal government worker earns in full pay and benefits close to double the average American in the private sector. This is unsustainable. The entire federal aparatus MUST be downsized and some departments that duplicate state services eliminates. We are $16 TRILLION in debt (that’s on the books only and doesn’t include SS or Med) and that number is growing exponentially. You want to know where we are headed? Look to Greece. Unemployment there is now at 25%, and their economy is shrinking. This is what happens when the all powerful central government cannot control it’s spending. The only difference is in our case, it will be 10x worse than what they are going through in Greece.
“The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.” – Ronald Reagan
“Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end, and no sense of responsibility at the other.” – Ronald Reagan
will you go away after your guy loses the election?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE—-YOU LAZY NO GOOD PEOPE—–GET EDUCATED
you might try that yourself
You spend more time looking for quotes to justify you misguided thoughts than you do getting the facts!!
I think he wanted to be president to add to his resume….I don’t think he really has a passion for the position. He certainly is not presidential in his off the cuff speech.He is not ready for prime time.
He does not know the hang of being a President let alone adding it to the resume.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!
He has worked his whoooole life!!!
He has ran companies!!!!
He knows how to make businesses work!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT DID OBAMA EVER DO?????? Oh Yeah, He was on the Health and Human Services Committee.
As you so elegantly said ” he has “ran” companies into the ground!!
He’s NOT good at his speaches or filling the American’s with a bunch of BS—–He is a worker not a talker—-THERE’S A BIG BIG DIFFERENCE. WHO CARES HOW HIS SPEACHES ARE!!!!!!!!!!!! HE CAN AND HAS RAN BUSINESS AND KNOW’S HOW!!!!
Your right, he is NOT good at putting on a BIG FAKE SHOW!!!!!
Of course Gov Romney has heard of the perks of being President. Life time retirement ck, bout a 1/2mil a year, some secret service protection, medical, each of his homes will get a security system. And a whole bunch of others are paying for him too ‘interview’ for this job. For most people it is hard to get a job if you have been out of work for 2 years, He claims to not having a job for at least 8 years.
Gov Romney DOESN’T NEED THE RETIREMENT CHECK OR THE PERKS!!!!!!!!!!! He is a business man that has worked hard his whole life to get where he is today!!!! He didn’t set around waiting for the mailman to bring a check!!! Obama has never ever had a job or ran any kind of company nor knows how—-Alllll he’s good at is talk talk talk and tell the idiot people a bunch of junk they WANT to hear!!! Do you want to live in America and live like an American or do you want to live under Obama and
Redistribute to the rest of the world and turn out living like the people in Libya.
ANYBODY that supports Obama needs to move out of our country!!!! You people are uneducated and uniformed!!!! You people need to get a job and act like Americans and support American living and work hard for something instead of laying around waiting for hand outs!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET EDUCATED—-GO WATCH THE MOVIE 2016
So U R educated by a MOVIE?????? Hahahahahaha. Joke of the millenium.
Do you know what redistribution MEANS??? Do trees grow from the top down or from the roots up???? In your opinion trees grow from the top down. Hmmm Never SAW ONE. For tree to be healthy and grow robust and good need good soil and nutrient. Then tree grows from the healthy root and branches out (redistribute) to grow even better. When you feed the bottom, the roots grow stronger and so are the branches. Some die off as it’s in nature but new growth replace them that goes for the top and for the bottom. Once you start starving and neglect the roots the tree will start dying slowly but surely and it start at the lower branches and all the way to the top. In this scenario, the roots in your opinion are useless and feeds of the top. You must be the one who still believe that Earth is flat not round, otherwise we all would fall off. Most idiotic comment ever read in this post. ROMNEY NEVER WORK A DAY OF HIS LIFE HARD WORK. HE WOULD STARVE IF HE HAD NO MONEY AND NO JOB. HE WOULD NOT KNOW HOW TO FLIP A HAMBURGER OR TORN ON THE LIGHT SWITCH. LOL
Soooo, when you feed a bunch of know good low lives FREE Food and FREE health care and FREE living and FREE day care and Free phones—–
THAT IS GROWING OUR ECONOMY??? HAAAAA HAAAAA HAAAA
I would really really like to see our country take off if the people living under the bridges took over. haaaa haaaa
YEAH!!!!! GET EDUCATED
GUESS WHAT —-UNEDUCATED AND UNINFORMED —–
You might want to do some reachers. Romney was not born ritch, he worked for what he has!!!! He did sit around and wait for his check!!!! He worked!!!! Do you know what Obama has done his whooole life or what kind of realestate he has ever owned. CHECK IT OUT!!!!!!!!!
No thank you! I don’t listen to proven, outright lies!! And I resent being called ” you people” by the upper 1percent or a Republican!! I am an American who happens to believe in ALL of America, not just the 53percent!
If I have his money even 1% I would not work but TRAVEL,TRAVEL and see the beautiful world out there. Life is short and I would rather enjoy it than running my fathers legacy through mud and lies and deceit. He is like a windsock, it goes where the wind (big checks come from) blows.
US GOVERNMENT IS NOT A BUSINESS AND CAN NOT BE RUN AS SUCH.
No matter what Ryan and Romney come up with now it shouldn’t help. They have just lied to the American people to many times. The real Mitt Romney just stood up. Not only the 47% that he offended but his Foreign Affairs remarks were classic also. He showed how heartless he is,when his fathers family go together and helped his father go to school, He said he would never do that kind of help. If he wouldn’t help a family member better himself. Why would he help Americans down on their luck.
Obama’s got all the votes… Blacks, Minorities, Unions, Illegals, all the sycophants sucking the blood out of the 53% who pay taxes, government workers… and of course…idiots… how can he loose???
Jeffrey… I would say you are the idiot
GET EDUCATED!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO YOU WANT TO BE AN AMERICAN AND LIVE LIKE AN AMERICAN????? IF NOT—GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!—IDIOT
You get out!!! I pay taxes, I have worked my whole life, I contributed to Medicare and SS! So don’t EVER tell me to get out you arrogant twit!!
High pockets, if you have paid into the system then you are definitely entitled to it. I am talking about the moochers who have never paid into the system and probably never will. That is what will eventually break the system so the many hard working individuals like you and I will not be able to receive what we have paid in. My apologies, you are a good American and no one could ever say you are a moocher since you have paid into the system your whole life.
It is spelled “lose.” Like “the Dodgers will LOSE to the Giants this year.”
Here is the million dollar question – are you one of the sycophants or the idiot?
“MUST BE ANOHER OF “LITTLE MAN” KARL ROVE’S BLUNDERS.
We need to vote Mr. John Boehner, Speaker Of The HOuse, out of office as well.
Complain, complain, crying and more crying!
He is clueless–‘NO VISION” for America.
It’s Obvious the ONLY people that vote for Obama are the people that want hand outs!!!! FREE FREE FREE— Blacks, Minorities, Illegals. Sooo, if you have worked sooo hard your whooole life why do you put yourself in that bracket???
Some people just know these Quotes!!!!! They don’t have to look them up. If you were proud of your president and the things he did and accomplished —YOU KNOW AND REMEMBER WHAT HE SAID —IDIOT!!!!!!!!!
WE NEED TO GET RID OF THE GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!! ALLLL GOVERNMENT JOBS—THEY ARE ALLL A WAIST AND A BUNCH OF BULLL HOCKEY.
ALLLLAmerican- What owning RE have to do with running Country?? Boy U R Stupid one.
Who is getting the free food, phones, day care??? U??? U will be living under bridge (if you can find a spot) soon, starting in Jan if R/R wins. You will be beging for free foof, free medical and no phone. LOL. Be ready. The biggest CEO in the world (in his and your mind only) don’t even know you exist, U R the 47% mooch. Did he threw you a .25 cents to your hat???
Because you idiot!!!! If you have never bought a house in your life or paid real-estate taxes or paid property taxes OR started a business and paid your taxes for your business and permits GALORE and every single process that goes a long with a business—-YOU HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING AND SHOULDN’T EVEN BE ABLE TO VOTE IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!! JUST LIKE THE CLINTON’S—NEVER OWNED A DIME!!!!!!! It’s the no-good low lives that want to live off the hard working people that pay in allll the taxes. Why should our children work hard in school to get good grades to get into a good college and get a degree to get a good job to get alllll their hard working money taken away to give to the LAZY NO GOOD PEOPLE THAT DON’T WANT TO WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get EDUCATED and ask around and you will find out what’s REALLY going on around you!!!!
GET A JOB AND SUPPORT YOURSELF!!!!!!!!
ENOUGH WITH THE HAND OUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE ARE SICK OF GIVING YOU EVERYTHING FREE!!!!!!!!
Even Caroline Kennedy: DIE-HARD DEMOCRAT is smart enough to see through Obama’s lieing ways and what he’s trying to do to our counrty!!!!!!!!
Caroline Kenney said: ” I CAN’T STAND TO HEAR HIS (Obama’s) VOICE ANYMORE.
HE’S A LIAR, AND WORSE.” It just takes a Democrate to be Big enough and smart enough
to say Obama’s ways are NOT even Democratic ways!!!!
ALLamerican – U R wrong – I have rental homes and rent them to section 8 and they are whites, with a family history being on welfare, 1 home is rented to a black family near Chicago, also on sect.8 but they WORK on minimum wage jobs and NEVER missed their share of payment, while the white guy always complain that his back hurts to even cut his grass that is required of him. Always late with payment (he must pay with in 5 days of grace period or he will be off Sect. 8).
I own 3 businesses RE Investments, , and Translation business and started another one – IMPORT. I own my own house on 4+ acres near Fox River and FULLY PAID FOR IT.
What do you have?? By the way I am LEGAL immigrant and US Naturalized Citizen for the last 34 yrs (41 yrs in US) and I NEVER been on welfare. I grew up in Communist ruled Country, was educated there (Bachelor in International Trade and Economy). I had free education, medical, dental and I still could travel to other Countries despite the propaganda here. I was going to church, had religion classes in school later in church. I was married in church – all under communist rules. When I turned 18, I had to get proper State ID for free and VOTE. Nobody said I have to have 20 ID to vote and nobody cares what party I was affiliated with. In 1968 while in College we had gone out to the streets to protest and I was arrested for being a rebel and against government and kicked out of College.
My mom paid to a College official (as they all corrupted) big bucks so I can continue my education. Since I did not joined the youth red party (commies) I did not get any perks but they still have to educate me and let me graduate minus the big graduation party I did not care for. From then on I was persona non grata, I choose to emigrate. Was in France, for a year then USA accepted my application and this is my home for the last 41 yrs. My first home was the State of Mass. in 1971 I worked in a factory @1.90 /hr and my husband (now
late) was making 2.50 hr as a machinist. We saved our our money and bought our first house in 2 yrs. 23 family house. I took some courses in RE Inv. etc and started to buy houses there. Market started to go down I sold them all with a nice profit and moved to Arizona. Worked in a one of the biggest Corp for 6 yrs and bought more houses, sold them off and moved to Colorado and I had 3 European Deli/Cafes and run them uintil I moved to Illinois. Bought 5 houses here and my own. All paif for. I don’t have to work at all, but I do because my husband died but left me with over 1.7 MILLION in debt. I had to sell of my houses and 1 business (Deli) to pay for it. He lost his job and insurance and my insurance only paid 500K on his first heart surgery, the rest was our responsibility.He had another open heart surgery to a tune of $500K + and he died 11 mos later anyway. I PAID IT OFF all of it. None of it qualified for SS or disability and we did not stick it to the taxpayers.
I am still too young for SS so I run my businesses and I travel the world looking for items to bring here and the business is growing. I EMPLOY people and all on 1099 what they do with their money is none of my business. I do have a horse and I DO NOT USE HIM AS A WRITE OFF. He was saved from a slaughter house at the ripe age of 8 and now he is 26 yrs old and still kicking. I have another friend who also boards her horse s there and also is from the same country as I am and WE DO NOT WRITE OFF OUR HORSES. SHe also saved her horses from a slaughter house.
Don’t judge me when you don’t know shit about me. Most Europeans who come here own small business to envy to all LAZY Americans who make fun of them.
I have a friend who is from Poland and they own 5 businesses (deli, cleaning, cafe and recreation property in Michigan), and some people make fun of them because they speak English with an accent. They work hard, employ and pay decent wages and will NEVER employ a white bigoted American. The ones who scream the loudest and put others down are the worst,because they discriminate of their look, speech or religion. They have no values, no core and no vision but jealousy. Look who owns the 7-11, Circle K, Dunkin Donuts etc, FOREIGNERS / IMMIGRANTS and mostly from India. THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILD BY IMMIGRANTS and still IS.
So there, go and listen to stupid Faux News and sprinkle pepper spray on your salad, it’s a vegetable and good for you. Also you can put a down payment on a new Moon Colony – you can live there. I am sure you cheered Gingrich when he said he would build a moon colony as many others Very EDUCATED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE AMERICANS DID.
By the way, I have a ocean front beach property for sale in Yuma ,Az. and a log cabin in Sahara woods. CHEAP.
Heeeeeeeyyyyy, how bout you go home and take a few bus loads with you!!!!!!!!
