Look, corporate greed has been going on since it's inception. What you have is an administration that has put road blocks up at every turn, so these greedy folks just don't hire. It's easier to borrow money at zero rates and buy back stock, or acquire other companies. The Fed is as much to blame as the President for the lousy job market and economy...it's just that simple.
The poodle also thinks that Nevada Harry is president and that OBIMBOPOLOSI is his wife!
(Hey - we are below average now on our temps by quite a bit and the nights going to be in the 60s - there are no mosquitoes around here, but at our other place in the Twin Cities it's another story - but NOT bad, a few wasps around, no butterflies, bees etc. - bad for the garden - even my 10ft Hazelnut bush croaked this harsh winter - must be the global warming!!)
In an official Vatican “Evangelii Gaudium” (The Joy of the Gospel), The Pope went into stark detail about the greater harm of the greed and power associated with world markets and unfettered capitalism. Some of the more illuminating excerpts include…
“Just as the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill’ sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say ‘thou shalt not’ to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills.”
“In this context, some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”
“In this system, which tends to devour everything which stands in the way of increased profits, whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenseless before the interests of a deified market.”
“As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems or, for that matter, to any problems. Inequality is the root of social ills.”
No wonder the Republicans view this Pope as the reincarnation of Karl Marx. And this isn’t the first time that Francis has been disparaged with an association to our president. Last December News Corpse reported on a story on Fox News that declared that “Pope Francis is the Catholic Church’s Obama – God help us.” The story warned that the popular new Pope is already headed in the wrong direction and that “just as President Obama has been a disappointment for America, Pope Francis will prove a disaster for the Catholic Church.”
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz believes that Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, instead of the actual speaker, John Boehner.
“Boehner has made it very clear he isn’t able to control his own conference. He isn’t really Speaker,” Wasserman Schultz told NBC reporter Chuck Todd, “Ted Cruz is Speaker!”
The leading Democrat and Florida congresswoman made her comments in response to accusations that her party is the only group discussing impeaching President Obama for fundraising purposes and how Cruz was supposedly responsible for the defeat of an immigration bill promoted by Boehner.

The Centers for Disease Control may want to get involved soon because the epidemic of Obama Derangement Syndrome is spreading unchecked in the halls of Congress. A draft resolution to honor Pope Francis, authored by Republican Peter King and Democrat John Larson, has been stalled by an acutely myopic band of GOP obstructionists.
H.Res.440 seeks to recognize Pope Francis for “his humility, his commitment to economic justice and improving the lives of the poor, and his outreach to individuals from all walks of life.” Those surprisingly non-controversial reasons for honoring the new Pontiff has the Tea Party Republican caucus steeping in anger and refusing to join the tribute. According to a GOP source who spoke to The Hill, the alleged reason for their disrespectful non-participation is that…
“Some Republicans believe the pope is ‘sounding like [President] Obama. [The pope] talks about equality — he actually used the term ‘trickle-down economics,’ which is politically charged,’ the GOP official said.”
OMG! The head of the Catholic church has debased Christianity by daring to discuss equality and empathy for the poor. "
Charles Krauthammer blasts ridiculous GOP for suing Obama one day for acting alone then begging him to do the same the next day
House Republicans made fools of themselves Thursday when they couldn't pass their own border bill and then demanded President Obama go it alone.
house gop can't even pass John Boehner's bill on the border.
gop acts like a bunch of drooling drunks that don't even make any sense at all.
one day they sue because Obama acted alone with a one year delay of a part of obamacare
and they next day they tell him to act alone on the border issue.
..........OBIMBO, very nervous, grasping for words and replies with no substance at a Q & A session with the press!
He looks finished - he is finished and he is just hanging on - there will be no more productivity coming out of this clown - which never did anyway!
November is coming soon and then let's send him on "vacation" permanently!
You can blame capitalist greed. As corporations record historic profits, they continue to fire people and replace them with computers and robots.
He he. Cruz has Boehner's Huevos stored in his cheeks, like a squirrel.
"Boehner called a Republicans Only / No Girls Allowed Club meeting over the fake “border crisis.” Gohmert set about hacking off everybody. The subject came up of Becky Tallent, the speaker’s immigration aide. Gohmert thinks she has too much heart, plus she’s a girl."
Gohmert asks Boehner about Becky Tallent.
"Boehner rose from his chair and told Gohmert to knock it off, that he was “sick” of him bringing up Tallent. According to one member present, Boehner was visibly angry, “erupting” out of his chair to address Gohmert.
As Boehner turned back around, Gohmert stood silently for a moment before asking, “So then why did you hire her?”
Without getting back up to the microphone, his voice raised, Boehner retorted, “because she’s well-qualified on immigration!”
Tallent was in the room during the Boehner-Gohmert dust-up, and several Republicans said the episode was painfully awkward to watch.
One Republican at the meeting called Gohmert’s conduct “disturbing” and “deranged” and said “Boehner did exactly the right thing, and I only wish he’d expelled Gohmert from the room.”

At least Boehner and the Republicans are trying to get things past before going on vacation, while OBIMBO is on FULL TIME VACATION!
But he forgot to draw a RED LINE - that's why! ;o)
But just think of how many part time jobs he created after he ruined a lots of full time jobs and also part time government employment!!!
