Can you feel the recovery?

The unemployment numbers came out today, and look, we're in recovery. Except the unemployment number went back up to 7.9%.

Dems say this is the best looking economic collapse you'll see. They actually said that this week.

In fact, Harry Reid came out this week and said we are in recovery. Okay.

Speaking of money, the free health care sure is expensive.

CNS news is reporting In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.

Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.

The IRS's assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.

The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.

Can't you feel the recovery?

Also, gas prices are going up again. I'm sure all the weekend news talk shows will be all over this.

Along with the duped football player with the imaginary girlfriend, and we'll get to the bottom of why a singer lip-synced the national anthem.

It's great to sit back and watch cutting edge journalism done by the masters.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Listening to the MSM is like being on the Titanic and having the Captain announce that some of us will be saved.

Is this how we should be recovering? Texas remains America’s undisputed capital of carbon dioxide, a title the industry-heavy state has held since the federal government begin keeping track more than two decades ago.
We're #1 Rick Perry is probably proud of this stat. Eliminate the EPA so we can really screw everything up, and make our drinking water shimmer with a rainbow sheen.

It's real funny a Democrat said it was the best looking decline (that is the GNP declined) he had ever seen. Geeze these guys, if in charge of the Titanic, would say it's the best slow sinking they have ever seen.

Thankfully in Texas we have a REAL economy. But in Liberal Blue states they are gong bankrupt. Why? High taxes, UNIONS, lots of red tape (and graft, payoffs, etc..)

I hear Louisiana now wants to ditch their income tax! Well welcome to the prosperity club!


If this is recovery I would hate to see collapse. This administration is a joke, supported by brainless idiots that have no clue as to what is going on in the world around them.

Of the 159K "new" jobs created in private sector reported, the majority were in retail. This was to accomodate the ,02% (.0002) growth in consumer spending or the increase of part-tme positions over full time to avoid healthcare tax. Make no mistake, media is pure government propaganda. From climate change to Iran, media is the voice socialist communism, but then what else would you expect from a borderless nation that has secreted millions of refugee immigrants from the bankrupted Russia?
