We must be in an alternate universe. No Mc or Cheezy — again! This is like the 3rd weekend in a row without either of them.

Looks like more Mandella lauding, as if a week of it hasn’t been enough already.

==

Obamacare website is doing okay, per Obama. Close enough for government work.

==

Ice and snow blanket much of the central US. Some areas are still digging out of 8-11” of snow and some got over 1” of ice.

Let’s move on. Obamacare website is old news.

New topic, new crisis: GOP are creating economic disaster by refusing to extend unemployment benefits.

Paul’s plan wants to keep children and the poor from healthcare.

Moving on, DRONES!

Back on c-spam some black guy complaining that all white guys are racists and that's why he can't keep a yob. Seems hes been fired a lot and its always someone else's fault.Curious.

He says African American people are still under attack... Maybe they can complain while they eat free food and call the po-lice on their free phones and then go back to their free homes with free medical care.....

The irony of it all is that zero is destroying the very country that he expects to pay the bills for his communist dream. Only one of the reasons why communism/socialism never works.

Rand Paul expressing reluctance to run for presidency giving the apprehension of the communists relentless attacks on his family. Which is why many good candidates won’t step forward.

Wallace seems to be seriously cross-examining Zeke the RAT over valid shortcomings of ObamaCare (and calls it that)

Now showing stats of young people stating they will not sign up. Emmanuel denying it and attempting to discredit the poll, and the enrollment projections from the Congressional Budget office in order for the plan to work.

Zeke thinks the young people will sign up. (delusional)

With all the great economic news last week I cannot understand why the EMERGENCY ONE-TIME unemployment funds need to be reauthorized. Do you realize that for the full five years we have suffered under pharaoh obozo, America has had to offer emergency unemployment to the millions who lost their jobs?

Why is the FED still pumping $85 BILLION a month into the stock market if unemployment news is so great?

Seriously, the propagandists in the WH need to get their story straight and make sure their stenographers in the press report appropriately - no need to be a rocket scientist to see that these stories are a fiction produced by obozo and pResident ValJar.

David Horowitz had Mandella’s number and its not very high on the 0-10 scale.:its here:

“Mandela began as a terrorist and never turned his back on monsters like Arafat and Castro, whom he considered brothers in arms. When he was released from prison by deKlerk, he showed unexpected statesmanship, counseling reconciliation rather than revenge, no small achievement in a country in which the “liberation” movement (led by Mandela’s wife and party) placed oil filled inner tubes around the necks of former comrades and set them on fire.

But if a leader should be judged by his works, the country Mandela left behind is an indictment of his political career, not an achievement worthy of praise – let alone the unhinged adoration he is currently receiving across the political spectrum.”

http://www.horowitzfreedomcenter.org/nelson_mandela_1918_2013

Heres’s more”

“South Africa today is the murder capital of the world, a nation where a woman is raped every 30 seconds, often by AIDs carriers who go unpunished, and where whites are anything but the citizens of a democratic country which honors the principles of equality and freedom.

Liberated South Africa is one of those epic messes the Left created and promptly forgot about.”

Wallace asking: Didn’t Obama say “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”?

RATagandist tries repeatedly to change the question to “unlimited choice of doctors” Wallace won’t let him.

He finally concedes that Obama said it, but continues on his WH talking point narrative.

Wallace: Should Obama fire Sebelius?

Several threads pointed out that we have had 60 months (5 years) of unemployment at 7% or more.

Several millions have completely dropped out of the workforce in the last 5 years or that rate would be several points higher.

Amazingly, the MSM allows Obama to campaign against the economy of his own creation.

Add in athletes and per percentage of the ethnic population, average income is probably higher for blacks than for other ethnics. Although, many Hispanics are making $millions in baseball.

Ironically, its to our political benefit to keep extending unemployment benefits since these people continue to be counted as “looking for work”. So if we don’t vote to keep funding people who can’t get a job forever it hurts us politically.

Here’s the real problem in computing the unemployment stats as stated by steve Moore.
its here:

http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2013/10/14/missing-workers-report

“HOBSON: So what does the reports say? What would the unemployment rate be if we were counting all of these missing workers?

MOORE: Well, it would be incredibly high. It would be 10 percent. Right now, as you said, it’s around 7.3 percent. And the Federal Reserve expects it to go even lower. I mean, they really do think that the unemployment rate is going to steadily fall. And they’re right because the unemployment rate falls when people fall off of payrolls, when they’re no longer participating in the economy, in working at all. And if you’re an economics reporter or if you’re a policy wonk, you know that. But to everyone else, it just looks like we’re doing better as the unemployment rate is falling. And that is not the case.”

My fav heard often on FNC is Dr. Ben Carson.He was on last night with Judge Janine Pirro pondering why zero decided to destroy a once great health care system where 85% had insurance to cover the other 15%.
He suggested that there has to be a better way to cover the other 15% than forcing everyone to lose their current policies by the million with nothing but grief, no method of collecting payments, a broken computer system and massive aggravation to replace a policy people chose to buy.
Carson is evidently pondering running for office. I hope it’s the Senate.

In the short run it doesn't seem to matter. Just keep pressing the "Enter" button over there at the FED - don't look for any "tapering" soon. With the DJIA setting new highs routinely, joe-six pack public will keep spending for Christmas whether they have cash or not. The public is so gullible when listening to the 6pm news or reading a flash on their smart phone. In some ways reminds me of the 1920s with shoe shine guys buying stock on margin.

I don't know about that, Tom. Well paid athletes are really a very small group. I would say their numbers, for all athletes, doesn't add up to more than a few thousand people at most.

I mean, if you look at the rosters, each team in football can have, what 62 players? And most of those will get much lower salaries than the top quarterbacks and wide receivers. Same for baseball and basketball. Not many minorities in ice hockey! Soccer doesn't pay nearly as well as football, baseball and basketball.

Actually, I would think the millionaires in this group probably come to not more than a thousand, probably closer to 500 or so.
