I remember during the late 90s when unemployment was below 4%. Every time the jobs report came out and unemployment moved ever closer to 3%, Wall Street tumbled. The Federal Reserve (headed by Alan Greenspan) issued warnings of impending rise in inflation as hourly wages would have to be increased. Wall Street doesn't want full employment. Wall Street is very happy right now with unemployment above 7% as there is now constant downward pressure on hourly wages. Besides, Wall Street doesn't want to see interest rates on corporate debt to rise as would happen with lower unemployment.

Tenthers, I would like to introduce you to the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, which basically nullified the 10th Amendment.

I have to agree. This was the best ad of the night. It says a lot when a well respected conservative, such as Clint Eastwood, puts his name behind the saving of Chrysler and GM. Then again, Mr. Eastwood isn't the "conservative" portrayed by the tri-cornered hat wearing "tea party" movement conservatives. Also have to give kudos to the ad agency being used by Chrysler. Their "Imported from Detroit" tag line was pure genius a year ago and still stands proud today. I also loved the Chevy "End of the World" ad. The inclusion of Twinkies was brilliant! Is it me or should Pepsi save their money and stop trying to do Super Bowl ads? That ad with Elton John sucked! What a waste. Coke won the cola ad wars again last night. Great set of commercials!

I love how the Republicans are against micro-management of lesser government entities until they are for it. And boy are they for it in Arizona. The Republicans love top down "corporate" management style especially when it comes to government.

I am not in CD 8, so I know I can't say much on the subject, but it would be nice if the Democrats could have only one person running in the primary and let the Republicans spend money like mad in a contested race on their side.

I have written several times on my own blog about how the Goldwater Institute picks and chooses its battles and how it is has been missing in action regards to the mess that is Maricopa County government.

Don't get your hopes up that the $1 billion would be spent on public education. I am sure it will be used to hand out more vouchers for private schools and to shore up charter schools. I doubt one penny will reach a public school.

"Charter schools in this state operate at a lower budget than public schools," said Barrett Wait a moment. I thought the main argument FOR charter schools was that they were supposed to do more with less. Oh, I see, it was all a lie in order to hoodwink taxpayers into destroying the public school system so as for-profit "education" companies could come in and scoop up taxpayer dollars.

Isn't it interesting that in order to "line up the votes" before they even call a "special session" that Democratic Senators won't even be allowed to attend, that the Republicans are breaking open meeting laws?

As I mentioned in my own blog post, don't expect the DOJ to get involved. AG Holder is too chicken shit to do his job.

We have been screaming at the top of our lungs that its not Democratic or liberal policies that have driven up our debt, but no one has been listening. The ultra-conservative/theocratic fascist Republicans have been controlling the debate and the mainstream media is 100% complicit. Just look at who get's booked on the Sunday talk shows and the cable news shows. It sure as hell aren't liberals, except for the scattered few.
