Good one Destiny!


Idol should be good, more back room stuff will be shown. My friends sister was on it a few years ago and he told me great stories about the mothers of the kids being monsters and all that stuff.

In my younger years I did a lot of competitive latin and ballroom dancing. You should see the mommies and daddies then. The judges are cheating, the technique is bad, they have no presentation skills bla bla bla. We used to make fun of them. Bunch of idiots.

I bet. Other than the mothers being nuts the one story I remember is at the last night party where loads of 'celebs' were there. My friend is a teacher and great guy, very friendly...he told me the ONLY celeb that gave him the time of day was Henry Winkler (The Fonz).

Six years later it's funny to look back and see how wrong you guys were!!!!! ROTFLMAO
Millions more have lost their homes, a record $17 trillion in debt, a record 94 million Americans unemployed, a record number of people on Food Stamps (EBT), a record number of illegal aliens, a record expenditure on welfare ... a record number of retirement funds at risk in the stock market, S&P US credit dropped, one is six in poverty.... SIX YEARS later and it's even WORSE!!!!!

And you wonder why I doubt you?

ANOTHER 6 year old thread??? Slim, this is getting embarrassing for you. Especially since the economy has improved from 6 years ago when we were in an OFFICIAL recession. Thanks for resurrecting this one! ROTFLMAO!! Smile

Who are you ranting about? Who was wrong?

And Slim, why are you complaining? Evidently economy is well enough that folks are hiring Blues Brothers impersonators to the point you can take your family on vacations...

It's turtles all way down.

But neither major party has a clue how to stop it; indeed it's not even clear they wish to.

I paid for my extravagant vacation by selling a magic effect to a world class performer.The Blues Brothers just pays the bills.
If the economy was back to normal I wouldn't have to sell my secrets at all.
After taking $800 billion dollars for the Stimulus Package and all of those Shovel Ready Jobs it's got to be the biggest failure I've ever heard of. That's over $4,000.00 per tax payer...... Did you get your moneys worth?

BTW ... I may have to sell another secret to pay for my next vacation... Such a sad situation. Smile

I don't see a problem. I am currently emailing with a Nigerian prince and apparently there is millions available if I loan him a few hundred bucks. I'll be on easy street soon.

If it sucks now, what was it 6 and a half years ago when the unemployment rate was 8%, the Dow Jones, was at around 8000, and we were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs per month?

http://www.deptofnumbers.com/unemployment/us/

This shows that this administration created 7.7 million jobs compared to 1.28 million for the last administration:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobs_creat......al_terms

Granted, there is still a huge wage gap, earnings could be higher, and the poverty rate has not changed much (although there has been a slight decrease), the economy has demonstrably improved.

And that "94 million unemployed" is a BIG FAT LIE!!! The correct number is 8.266 million, as in my first link. Even plain old common sense would tell you that in a country of 325 million people, after you disregard the elderly/retired, disabled, and those in school/college, the workforce is only about 157 million (from the Bureau of Labor Statistics). So 94 million unemployed would make the unemployment rate a staggering 60%, which is laughably ridiculous and just plain WRONG!!! ROTFLMAO!!! Smile Smile Smile

And, oh yeah, if you have to SELL stuff in order to take vacations, you probably should get your priorities straight, take personal responsibility, and NOT go on vacations until you can afford to, right? Vacations are a luxury, not a right. LOL!!!

Record- 90 millions Americans not in labor force: http://www.wnd.com/2013/09/record-90-mil......r-force/
You obviously are not taking into account the people who just quit looking for a job because there are none!

Slight decrease in poverty? ROTFLMAO! That's why Gov't assistance of number Americans have increased by millions under Obama.

Good god, look at the google experts.

Don't know how to break it to you boys, but there's more to economics than searching up your favorite partisan blog and spouting inflated opinions with exclamation points while pretending to roll on the floor laughing at the other guy who does exactly what you do.

Meaningful political discourse is in its death-throes.

I am as biased as anyone. But let's forget Google for a second. Things have indeed improved. Why is that a bad thing to some?

Or it could just mean the requirements for getting assistance have been reduced, helping a larger number of people.

People believe what they want to believe. Some refuse to believe that the current administration has made mistakes. Others refuse to believe that it has had successes.

And it's easy to find "evidence" to back you up either way.

John of course that is the truth. It is EASY to allow perception bias to cloud judgement and then to just ignore evidence of anything that does not CONFIRM that point of view.

I just fail to see how endless bashing or cheerleading helps anyone.
