Stuff is getting better and better.

We've all seen the latest stats... Unemployment is the best in 4 years this month. More and more jobs being added. Housing is starting to explode again. Stock market hitting highest levels since Bush dropped it to below 6,000. Obama, can carry his head high. Now, we might finally get some sensible gun laws in place that will make an actual difference in future attacks like those on Sandy Hook. There are a handful of radicals out there that still blame Obama for everything, but the concenses is in, that the teaparty fray is dwindling as things in this country finally snap back after 8 years of George W Bushes sabbotoge of our economy.

The gun law proposals are just political BS. And our local economy is no better than it was a couple years ago.

No improvement in the economy here, with the exception of gunshows and gun sales.

You both must live in Cuba or something like that then because things are straight up better in my area, and obviously nationwide too, as the stats support. Where do you actually live just out of curiousity where things are the same as they were a few years back?

Under my picture on my post is where I live and it sure is not Cuba. I have my own forum with members from all over the U.S. and Canada, and most say that nothing has improved. Just because things are better where you live, don't assume that they are better everywhere.

I have to say that for me to take anyone seriously here, I like to know where they are living. It just explains so many things.

Oh yeah, nothing but Kool Aid and Obama lovers in my area. This is from my local paper today.



Jobless rate unchanged in California, state loses 17,500 jobs

By Kevin Smith and Greg Wilcox, Staff Writers

Unemployment rates held steady in California and Los Angeles County last month but the Inland Empire saw a decline, the state Employment Development Department reported Friday.

California's jobless rate remained stuck at 9.8 percent in December - level with the previous month's reading but well below the year-ago rate of 11.2 percent.

The state shed 17,500 jobs over the month but it has added 556,500 since the economic recovery began in February 2010.

Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp., said people shouldn't place too much emphasis on one monthly drop in employment.

Oh sure and Fox news stated that more people are killed by hammers than guns too. Whether you choose to believe it or not, the economy is rebounding from what it was in the last days of the Bush economy. Do this, Hav and eddie...... Go down to your local mall during the daytime on a weekday and snap a picture or two of the empty parking lots........ How about all the people gathering at the rivers edge to do their laundry because they have no money for the laudromat. The general consencus is that the jobless rate is dropping and the economy is beginning to take off, even if it's not in your slum area.

Is this General Consensus from folks you meet while standing in line for the free Obama handouts? Looking at the stats above, they seem more realistic than the kool aid clouded mind that you have on your shoulders.

By the way, how do you feel about your King's removal of guns from the public sector? As an Obama lover, I would expect you to be in the front of the line, but something tells me this won't happen. Maybe a few more sips of that kool aid might move you to the front of the line?
