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).




Full breakdown and summary to follow:

My niece, who is not too bright, worked part-time, has four kids and baking her fifth, husband doesn't work, paid in $1,290 in taxes.

She is receiving $10,300 back due to credits. If she made 3 times her income, her net would be less. She voted for Obama twice.

She cannot spell Indiana, the state in which she was born and lives. This story has no ending, which is why itis so sad.

Al Queda a shadow


What about all the countries they claim they are in, causing a hell of a time and I heard the CIA is funding Al Queda as they are our allies in Syria


Am I loony or is Obama showing his true mental capacity tonight?

Funny how he thinks raising the minimum wage to $9.50/hr is a zero-sum game.

We had this change occur here in Ontario, Canada.  Minimum wage was raised to $10.25/hr.  Worked ok for about 6 months before everything started costing more. Now 3 years later they're asking for another increase.

Typical libetards who don't take into consideration the fact that when they increase the pay of those at the bottom, that those at the top won't get an increase either.

And around and around we go.........................................

Holy Hell!!!

Here it comes!!!

The pitch for Drone bases anywhere for any reason!!!

Any place in the world, including on U.S. soil to stop any threat that is deemed "terrorist"!

"Our challenges don't end with Al-Queda."  Something tells me Obummer and the cadre of Demican and Republicrat wonks will drone their own citizens before they get serious with other world powers.

It is extremely difficult to discern between the Malignant Narcissist and the raging Sociopath.

Over enough time, dynamics and patterns and impact are finally recognized,

and healthy persons are repelled by both.

This guy is truly frightening, in The Worst Way.

The only thing more frightening is the room full of enablers, sharing the same disorders, and who by design were to prevent this from happening.

A distressed passenger sat with her boyfriend's body for more than nine hours after watching him choke during the Jetstar flight from Singapore to Auckland.

Vanessa Preechakul, a 27-year-old architect, was making the 11-hour journey with Robert Rippingale back to his native New Zealand for a family reunion.

At first Ms Preechakul thought nothing was wrong as Mr Rippingale tucked into his beef dish while watching a movie 90 minutes into the flight.

Then she noticed him shaking.

"I thought he was laughing very hard.

How does "protecting our most precious resource - our children" jibe with his pro-abortion stance?

Yes, gun control to make it hard for criminals to get guns, while our government will hunt us and gun us down.

"This time is different."

Fuck you!  Fuck you, you worthless asshole, you serpent in the grass, you raper of Liberty!!!

If you can't trust your populace with what your police and military carry than why in the fuck would you trust them with a vote!?!?!?

Those lives were stolen by OTHER HUMAN BEINGS, not the "guns", not the inanimate objects, but the HUMAN BEINGS wielding them!!!

How about busting the punks, the human beings, the individuals responsible for the ACT instead of the inanimate OBJECT used!?!?!?


Take away my Second Amendment Rights and you and I are at WAR!!!!

What a genius? Increasing the minimum wage rate will encourage US businesses to employ the local population. They are so looking forward to increasing the cost of production of their products in times when the world economy is slowing down.

The only thing this will do is create more jobs in developing countries and increase unemployment in the US.

If he was really concerned about the employment situation and the cost of living, he would cut the fucking budget, rein in the fed, and pay down the debt.    


Watch the cost of goods become affordable.   Watch jobs stay in the country instead of increasing costs shipping them overseas...
