The State Of The Union - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


Last year's 6,977 word homage to jobs provided just over an hour's worth of applause-impacted rhetoric create much ado - more with what was not said than what was said. This year's 9pmET speech will likely be dotted with hope, and change, and jobs, and congress, and of course our union is strong... because the S&P is up 16% since last year's SOTU. But, by our measurement from Bloomberg's data from December 2011 (the last NFP before 2012's SOTU) to January 2013 (this year's last NFP) - Non-Farm Payrolls (NSA) dropped from 133.292 million to 132.705 million (or a 587,000 job loss).

"High quality pre-school available for every child..."

Hey dude, if Mom and Father are at home smoking crack it doesn't matter how good the programs are.

But that wouldn't involve government gravy and programs and money to states and banks and pork barrel and...

Before you know it your children will become wards of the state as soon as they are out of the womb.

I repeat myself: Give me the child until he is seven and I’ll give you the man.

Why is this clown talking about education? What will Pre-K and high school changes do? New college graduates can't find jobs, the economy is crap.

It has nothing to do with molding young minds so that they can become productive. It has everything to do with programming children to be unquestionably obedient to the state.

Barely one-sixth of the people living in this country voted for that douchebag.

Assuming you actually believe the election results, that is.

Why would he bother describing America? He wasn't born here, he wasn't raised here, he married a woman who hates America, and supported a preacher who damned America.

What a sickening low point for a country that once had such pride, and was a beacon of liberty for the entire world. Our enemies are laughing their asses off right now. They're beating us like a drum, without even having to fire a shot.

Good God, I remember Presidents talking about somewhat meaningful things like expanding freedom, challenging the Soviets, etc. etc. and now we get climate change, college score cards and legalizing illegal alien criminals.  This country is beyond screwed.

"We don't give a shit if you are here illegally, as long as you bring cash, can make a better drone, or fill the church pews, crop picking, house cleaning, and landscaping crews!"

"we don't give a shit if you are here illegally, as long as you suck our welfare system dry, have lots of babies, don't pay any taxes, and send whatever money you do actually earn out of the country. Also, if you could engage in gang activity, deal drugs, and commit violent crimes, that would be awesome too!"

Fixed it for ya.

Usually these creatures have to dispose of dead hookers to get an ab workout like this. Obamacare should include this 'stand/sit/stand/sit' ab workout at the education camps.

I would say, "an Obama voter," but most of them don't have jobs, so the point is moot.

This is a Greek Tragedy, playing out in real time.

Find some land, a water source, something to grow and some chickens and small livestock.

This country is done.  Rome in it's final days.  Collapsing from the inside out.  Lying to itself about the future.

The narcissist is so out of control. I love the SOTU reading binder on podium. Not a single page was flipped. The lies and deception are in ordinary daylight. After hearing about 3D printing, I shut off the TV.

Soon, with min wage at $9, we on the east coast, in the south,  can pay $6 for a loaf of bread like our friends in Cali, 'stead of the $2.50 we pay now...GO-Bama! Hope and change! And this assures that the dumbest of min wage earners will be on the streets, instead of flippin' burgers and cleaning toilets! Yay! I'm sure they'll go to the " YMCA"  instead of jackin' cars.
