Call your Congressperson!
From the same article:
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims falling to 390,0000 last week. The four-week moving average for new claims, a better measure of labor market trends, increased 7,500 to 405,250, the highest level since October last year.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims falling to 390,0000 last week. The four-week moving average for new claims, a better measure of labor market trends, increased 7,500 to 405,250, the highest level since October last year.Food and energy prices continue to rise, jobs remain scarce, layoffs plentiful, government spending is out of control, and the country is perched on the edge of a financial abyss. The average American knows that all is NOT well. So rather than handing out party favors and the assets of the wealthy, this administration would do well to read the not so fine print . . . which in reality has become the handwriting on the wall . . .

'NO, you can't plug it in'!
Via The Washington Free Beacon:
A federal judge has been forced to intervene in a dispute between two unions over who is in charge of plugging and unplugging refrigerated shipping containers at the Port of Portland.Tell you what, if it needs plugging in, why doesn't someone, . . . ANYONE, (with, or without a union card) just plug the damn thing in? Can you say 'rotten fruit of collective bargaining'? One can only wonder what happens when the plug turns up broken?
Oregon district court judge Michael H. Simon ordered the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) to abandon its efforts to snatch the responsibility of manning the outlets from the rival International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
“[The ruling] simply means that the same people who have been doing the work since 1974 will continue to do it,” said IBEW spokesman Norman Malbin.
To state the obvious, over regulation and excessive rules cost time, and money. STOP IT!

The American people have made their choice. They have decided that America must change its course, away from the principals of our Founders. And, away from the idea of individual freedom and individual responsibility. Away from capitalism, economic responsibility, and personal acceptance.
We are a Country in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living and lower and lower levels of personal freedom.
My regret, Lord, is that our young people, including those in my own family, never will know what America was like or might have been. They will pay the price in their reduced standard of living and, most especially, reduced freedom.
The takers outvoted the producers. In response to this, I have turned to my Bible and in II Peter, Chapter 1, verses 4-9 it says, “To faith we are to add goodness; to goodness, knowledge; to knowledge, self control; to self control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, kindness; to brotherly kindness, love.
Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build. We ask for your guidance in this drastic time with the drastic decisions that will be made to have any hope of our survival as an American business enterprise.
Amen.. . . And AMEN!
A BIG thank you to those who decided to sit out this election, and to those who opted to pull the lever to give Barack Obama another opportunity to finish us off entirely! Sleep well tonight.

Tempers are flaring in Hoboken, N.J., as residents complain officials in the flooded city on the Hudson River have been slow to get out food and water to the stranded.
At the National Guard staging area in front of City Hall, a man screamed at emergency officials. He says he blew up an air mattress to float over to City Hall to see why no supplies were getting out. He says he lives just blocks away and was expecting the city to at least get out food and water.
