Census adjustment, who are the census bureau btw (they never contacted me for anything )

A couple of thoughts, if this is true someone might want to notify MSNBC then because they are still printing articles (as of yesterday) which state that over 1 million people have given up looking for work:

Bottom Line - Jobless want you to quit already!

Quote:
Even though the unemployment rate dipped to 8.3 percent last month, there were still nearly 13 million jobless searching for work, and the number of discouraged workers, or workers who gave up looking, topped 1 million.
We already know that American Airlines is cutting 10,000 - 15,000 jobs, announced last week, and now Pepsi is getting ready to layoff 8700 poor souls:

Bottom Line - PepsiCo plans to cut 8,700 jobs

Quote:
PepsiCo also said it plans to increase its advertising and marketing investments by $500-$600 million in 2012, with particular focus on North America. PepsiCo’s Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi appeared on CNBC to discuss the investments, the company’s outlook and the planned job cuts.

“Layoffs are very very difficult,” she said, adding that even though the company is laying off 8,700 people, overall those cuts will be offset by the fact that PepsiCo hires between 15,000 and 20,000 workers globally.
Well done Pepsi, spend $600 million advertising your shit so you can cut 8700 jobs, which is okay because you can turn around and hire a bunch of people overseas for less than 1/4 the wages of the 8700 you cut in conus.

The airlines is a dying industry, has been since 9/11 they haven't learned how to evolve. I don't think any president is going to be able to do much for them.

It's Pepsi, they've been losing the cola war well before Obama was just a little Kenyan.

you didn't get a form? every household was supposed to get a form. if you're talking about a visit from someone, that's completely random and they obviously can't visit everyone. i remember when the forms went out and all the friends on my facebook said they weren't going to fill it out because they thought it was an invasion of privacy. give me a break. don't come crying to me when your district loses funding because they thought less people lived there so they close a school or library.

my mom worked for them, they wanted me to work for them too but they waited a full year to contact me after i replied. by the time they contacted me i was about to move out of the country in a couple weeks.

Yeah, I don't get that argument, either. It's a population survey, basically. I've seen the census forms when my family filled them out and it's not like they're asking questions about your daily personal showering habits or anything.

Not to mention, it specifically states in our Constitution that a census will happen every 10 years. So if this is some sort of invasion of privacy, we're going to need to do some Constitution altering again .

exactly. yet some of these people are the same people who want to regulate so much personal stuff that's frankly no one's business but yours, which you could argue is the real invasion of privacy.

Exactly.

These are also the same sorts of people who will willingly share every last bit of information about their lives on Facebook and such, too.

ABC News, Feb. 9
Quote:
“[Obama]’s trying to weaken them, churches, trying to say that anybody who believes in the values of the Judeo-Christian policies,” Santorum said to about 2,000 people in a converted barn [in Plano, TX, Feb. 8], one of his largest audiences of the campaign...“They are taking faith and crushing it. Why? Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God given rights then what’s left?” Santorum asked and an audience member offered, “Communism!”

“The French Revolution,” Santorum answered.
ThinkProgress, Feb. 9 (video embedded)
Quote:
"[The French Revolution] was a secular revolution on which we relied on the goodness of each other. This is the left’s view of where America should go. And of course where did France go? To the guillotine. To tyranny. If there are no rights that government needs to respect, then what we see with ObamaCare is just the beginning of what government will do to you."
And the most unique take on de Tocqueville I think I've ever heard (New Yorker, Feb. 9 [video embedded]):
Quote:
"He came from a country, they had a revolution, too…Their constitution by the way was very similar to the American Constitution. But it was one difference. Their constitution was based on three principles. Liberty—good. Equality—good. And fraternity—brotherhood. Brother-hood. But not fatherhood. The rights came from each other. Came from the government. Not inalienable rights that came from God."
Qu'ils mangent de l'Eucharistie!

Sometimes I get frustrated when I can't get a real, honest and adult answer about something like healthcare, but then I read something like that and I'm reminded why...

We're fucked

I'd say f you, but that would just be a hormonal, emotional reaction.

Hey Ricky, would that be only during that time of the month or just all the time?

In 2005 the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported:

So not long after his first book, “It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good,” hit Washington bookstores over the Fourth of July weekend, his opponents were sifting through the 430 pages at warp speed -- culling controversial passages in which the Pennsylvania Republican criticizes public schools, America’s “divorce culture” and argues that more American families should consider whether both parents really need to work. . . .

Many women, he adds, have told him that it is more “socially affirming to work outside the home than to give up their careers to take care of their children.”

That ideology, he says, has been shaped by feminists who demean the work of women who stay at home as primary caregivers.

“What happened in America so that mothers and fathers who leave their children in the care of someone else -- or worse yet, home alone after school between three and six in the afternoon -- find themselves more affirmed by society? Here, we can thank the influence of radical feminism,” Santorum writes.

“Sadly the propaganda campaign launched in the 1960s has taken root,” said Santorum. “The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness.”
