America Needs a New Sheriff

The American labor market showed few signs of new life in the latest jobs report.   First time filings for unemployment benefits rose again last week to a one-month high.  Claims rose for a second week, by 4,000 for the period ended Aug. 18.  After economists had predicted 365,000 new claims, the number climbed to 372,000. The administration continues to cite ...

“Romney Hood”? Obama Campaign Showing Signs of Idiocy

American Flag

I find the recent Obama re-election campaign tactic of referring to Mitt Romney as “Romney Hood” rather interesting.  Obama and his cronies are actually complimenting Romney, seemingly without being smart enough to realize it.  If idiocy isn’t the case they are counting on We the People being too stupid to know our fables.  I am a long way from being ...

White House Tells Lies (Repeatedly) To Win

The White House re-election campaign has denied any knowledge of an abhorrent, misleading Super PAC ad that wrongly blames GOP challenger Mitt Romney for the death of a steelworker’s wife from cancer. Campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki responded by saying: “We have nothing, no involvement, with any ads that are done by Priorities USA.  We don’t have any knowledge of the ...

Before the Dawn

A national poll showing a 59/35 percent disapproval rating demonstrates how declining confidence in American economic performance has led business owners to turn on the White House.  With the Oval Office insisting that the country cannot afford to continue the current tax rates for individuals making over $200,000 and couples making more than $250,000, aka the Bush tax cuts for ...

How’s That “progressive” Deal Working Out For You?

According to the Labor Department, jobless claims for unemployment benefits surged 34,000 to 386,000.  Figures for the prior week were revised upwards to 352,000 from the 350,000 previously reported.  This makes every time since the current administration seized power that previously reported unemployment numbers were later revised upwards. Meanwhile, factory activity fell shy of expectations held by economic experts and ...

Uh oh, here’s another report that must have slipped out while David Axelrod and the Obama campaign team wasn’t watching. Have y’all ever heard of Jeff Zients? He is the current director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the President Barack Hussein “kill list” Obama administration. And guess where he got his start! That’s right: Bain Capital. ...

The Speech Mitt Romney SHOULD Make


My name is Mitt Romney, and I’m asking for the job of President of the United States of America.

Only now until ...

Geithner: Obama’s Jobs Act costing taxpayers $200K per job is a ‘bargain’


“Turbo” Tim Geithner…. out of touch or just a turbo idiot?! In an interview with ABC News, Geithner challenges Democrats to pass Obama’s jobs bill. As usual, in what ABC sees as Geithner’s perceived ‘bargain’, it’s nothing but borrow, borrow, borrow… spend, spend, spend. “We can borrow money for 10 years as the government of the United States because people ...

Calling All Calligraphers


Are you a calligrapher? You need to apply… Apparently, there’s a strong use for these skills and you could make $90,000 a year. In a day and time when we have the Autopen to sign for the President who would believe there is enough need to have not one, but three calligraphers on staff at the White House. Who knew? ...

Gallup: Jobs #1 Hispanic Priority


All the news last week didn’t change the fact that Hispanics don’t put immigration as their number one priority. Instead, they are most concerned with jobs and health coverage. President Obama may want to review the most recent Gallup poll and perhaps take a pivot toward jobs during this election season. Or not. Maybe this is a prime opportunity for ...

First Time Unemployment Drops Again… But…

weekly jobless

Like many I look forward to seeing the unemployment numbers released by the Department of Labor each Thursday morning. These numbers reflect individual’s initial filing for unemployment benefits. They are not indicative of new jobs. Job growth numbers come out the first Friday of each month (I also watch for this). Dropping first time unemployment numbers coupled with increasing new ...
