i didn’t click on your link . If it makes you ill , then I can imagine that it will make me queezy also .
When you eat ramen noodles every day for lunch you don;t want to take that chance , because it’s a long time until supper. I watched a little of the SOTU address ,yes . Not much new . He did not announce that we were going to make Libya our fifty first State and, thereby, help reduce, by a whopping amount, our dependence on Oil imports . Nor did he mention anything about nationalizing
Wall Mart , which would help, because those guys make about 26,000,000 dollars an hour . At least we could turn part of the States’ government over to Wall Mart , because they sure know how to run things , and at a profit at that ! My uncle (by marriage) was from Arkansas . He use to ride to town barefooted on a mule . Who’s laughing now? Those Hill Billys know how to run things . Maybe just turn everything over to them and move the capitol to Bentonville . Our national flag would have a big Happy face logo on it . No more SOTU addresses ! No more senators or congressmen, just blue-vested officials , who met every morning to crunch the numbers . Our national motto could be ” welcome to the united states of Wallmart and have a nice day !” And what about that notion to keep everyone in high school until they turn 18?
Our highways and houses don’t just build themselves . Drop outs get those good paying jobs , while college graduates are going to be in virtual debtors’ prison for years , unless they go to work for wall mart in the future and are lucky to have a good government job with wall mart . Problem solved .

The following video shows some thoughts on Political theory and trickle down economics . I suggest that you Do Not Watch If :

1. You are under the age of 18

2. You are prone to bad dreams .

3. You are attending university on a scholarship

4. Recently discharged from the Coastguard

5. Will eat flaming Cheetos or other snacks with warm soda

6. Recently entered a lumber competition

Do Not Watch If

7. You must walk your pets

8. Have Age generated on-set attention deficit disorder .

9. Have adult children currently living with you

10. Are not on prescription drugs or reasonable substitutes .

11. Are living with your parents in their basement

12. Are not willing to turn the volume off.. on annoying sound tracks

12b. If you are over the age of 18

The twisting goes both ways; how man
y of those immigrant work visas are going to field hands, most I suspect. Living where I do you see the hundreds of workers that flood the fields around here every spring and fall. Real americans won’t tkae the jobs, I know several on unemployment who won’ t even apply because they don’t want to work that hard when they get by well enough on unemployment.

Yes, it goes both ways…

But flat out BOLD FACE LIES making people believe they’re true is what sucks… No matter who does it!

But they’re not lies if you can get the statistics to agree with you.

I have a friend who used to be a statistician in DC, he said that there were three types of people in this world; liars, damn liars, and statisticians. 30 seconds listening to the talking heads in DC and it is really hard to disagree with him.

Last night, .... rather deep in the refrigerator … I found a leftover slice of apple pie, from a gathering a few nights back.

I was amazed that—in my house—there would BE leftover apple pie, but … my wife convinced me that it was no longer good, and had to be thrown out.

I can’t believe how sad I got. I might have to build an urn for it, or something.

I like pie. I like cherry better’n apple, but … still.

Oh, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy…...

Russ: …how many of those immigrant work visas are going to field hands, most I suspect…

You ”suspect” ??? Huh?

…Living where I do you see the hundreds of workers that flood the fields around here every spring and fall. Real americans won’t tkae the jobs,...

”Real Americans” ??? Huh?, twice over…

I know several on unemployment who won’ t even apply because they don’t want to work that hard when they get by well enough on unemployment.

Yeah, who CAN”T get by on 1/4 of their previous wages/salary when unemployed for one or two years… After all, ALL Americans are over paid and under worked. Uh huh… ‘shore…

How can he claim 3 million new jobs? They are not new jobs. They are only jobs that were lost but re-hires. Nothing new has been created.
