Squawk of the day - Oct. 8, 2012

"If you want Obama to look smart, have him stand next to Joe Biden. If you want him to look clueless, have him stand next to Mitt Romney."

After Ryan gets through with Biden in their debate, watch the unemployment rate drop to 6%.

Is this meant as humor, or stated as fact? Inquiring minds want to know.

Either way it still made me smile, but no way as much as the joke about #34's nomination. Now that was a belly laugh.

Obama does better on a talk show like the View or Oprah where they are fawning over him and telling him in body language how great he is. When he is called on the Red Carpet, he wilts like a hot house lily in the sun. But this was funny. BTW, where is Oprah this year. Have not heard a peep out of her.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA--Yep. I agree with both the squawk and the #34 comment.

Joe Biden is attending special education class up in Deleware to prepare for his debate with Ryan. I am really looking forward to this debate. I have a whole box of kettle corn and my special ice tea ready for this show. Now the liberals are saying Obama is bored and doesn't want re-election.......FINE BY ME!!!!!!!!

I guess the only thing better for Da Coarch would be Chris Rock as the Vice President.

And if you want him to look unemployed, vote in November. Reminder to those who plan to vote Republican, resist the urge to act like a Democrat. Only vote once..

Coach, don't take your money to the bank. Jimmy Carter was thinking that way too when Ronald Reagan won. Put folks to work immediately, so if you are unemployed maybe you need to re-think your actions. Even this newspaper is a good example of ficticious figures. It had a bi layoff announcement. If you sit around thinking you have the election in the bag, guess again if you are believing the media. Remember those damn lies. Another thought, come after the election the MCSS will be laying off big time. Of course you have to give the folks 60 days notice, so get ready for that pink slip. Thousands will be laid off, so I hope you have those acorns laid aside.

Remind me again of how we have fictitious numbers? If we got something wrong we have corrections and I don't remember seeing any involving numbers. Please enlighten me...

0

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 2 months ago

The biggest number missed is the number of people who have just plain given up looking for work so they aren't counted in the unemployment percentage. That number exceeded all others. We (ObjectiveEyes and I) did the math for everybody last week. You must have missed it. How can you have BETTER unemployment figures when you add 114,000 jobs during the same time you had 350,000+ NEW unemployment applications in one week? Figures don't lie but Liars figure.

2

J.D._Sumner 2 years, 2 months ago

Valid point, but, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is the organization that puts out the official unemployment statistics and that is what we, and everyone else who follows the unemployment figures uses for unemployment stats.

Remember that the quote is "there are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics." Numbers can often be manipulated any way you choose.

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 2 months ago

If the same number of people were in the workforce today as when Obama took office, the unemployment rate would exceed 11%.

bigbob 2 years, 2 months ago

The drop has alot to do with people running out their benifits also, even the bias liberal media has admitted that. It has been reported that when people run out of unemployment beneits their moved to other free bee catagories which don't show under unemployment #'s.

If I were you Sister Ruby (Darrel Ealum)....I would be more concerned with fixing those raggedy trailers you renting on the east side of town...I know who you are and these racial baiting comments that you make need to stop

0

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 2 months ago

Please don't disparage Darrel Ealum. I am not nor have I ever been Darrel Ealum and do not intend to ever be Darrel Ealum. Nor do I live in Valdosta.

All you LIBS, if you can't outwit or outargue a conservative, you just start lying about them, especially the Big Lie that the conservative is a Liar. I've noticed over the years that it's one of the LIBS's favorite tactics. Accuse your opponent of doing what the LIBS are already doing to draw attention away from what the LIBS are already doing. Especially when it comes to being a LIAR.

Another person who needs to lay off the sauce.

VSU....I DO NOT HIDE BEHIND A FAKE MONIKER AND CALL PEOPLE NAMES....if I am wrong I apologize and move forward...however all you do on here is hide and call names to anyone who does not agree with you....if you would like to discuss our views like adults....let me know...Anytime, Anywhere

1 How do we know your name is really Duane Kelley? For all we know (or even give a crap) you could really be Tommie Postel.

2 If you want a 2nd opinion, okay you're an idiot as well.

3 If you don't like what I say, just don't read it, it's as simple as that.

I still say you need to lay off the sauce or whatever weird crack you are smoking.

BTW I am not hiding and I didn't even call you a name, I just simply said you need to lay off the sauce. so get your facts straight Mr. Postell!

D_K, I would suggest you go take a look at the properties owned by the Chief Slumlord of Albany, GA: Lorenzo Heard. People handing him their checks each month in exchange for meager food and a dirt floor shack.

2

TheBoss 2 years, 2 months ago

Heard dosen't pay taxes on most of his (church) properties.

1

whattheheck 2 years, 2 months ago

Including the $4 million in old Marine housing on Georgia avenue that he rents while getting a tax exemption. Should be taxed but the tax office won't do anything.

Really, Darrel Ealum? Are you serious? If Sister Ruby were Darrel Ealum I would have to beat and berate myself for worshipping her! I would be physically ill! Sister Ruby is too awesome! There is NO WAY possible she is Darrel Ealum!

Stranger things have happened....we have all been wrong before....but that is what I think

If he is running them like Mr.Ealum then we surely do have a problem...

shinedownfan..............love the pictures!!! Is Heard really a slumlord? Goodness!!!

1

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 2 months ago

D_K just wants to divert attention from the horrible unemployment problem facing this Country. Did you know that if the same number of people were "in the workforce" as the day Obama took office, the unemployment would be 11% RIGHT NOW?? That's the facts and news that the media won't mention.

1

Shinedownfan 2 years, 2 months ago

I know, I listen to Glenn Beck, Rush and Sean every weekday, so i am informed. I just need to be reassured, you are NOT Darrel Ealum, right?

Nevermind, dont answer it, I know you're not... you are too brilliant and whitty and a gift from God!

All I can do is give my Word that I am not him, nor am I related to him, nor have I even ever met him. Promise. Plus, I think he is a Male of the species, right? Which makes me WAY NOT HIM! HaHa!!

See, Shinedownfan.......they almost made YOU distrust me. That's the power of THE DEVIL'S LIES!!

Shinedownfan 2 years, 2 months ago

I came to my senses... but for some stupid reason, the herald is monitoring my comments now... and they dont post as soon as I write them. I wonder how long it will take to get back into their good graces again. :(

1

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 2 months ago

I earned my way back into the Moderated list recently and had to write a letter of apology and promise to not be naughty to Jim Hendricks.

I expect you got nalied when you posted a picture of the naughty things I wrote after they nailed me. Remember that?? That was naughty.

True unemployment is way higher than the stated numbers. For it has to include all those on the dole. Whether it be for food, housing, utilities or Medical treatment. For these people, if employed, are truely under employed. Not able to fend for themselves in this economy. True employment means everyone works and no one except the retired and handicapped gets any assistance.

BettyBowTie 2 years, 2 months ago

They never count the self employed or the independent contractor. The numbers have to be far higher.

Please Albany Hearld let Shinedownfan back into the good graces of commenting...Cause I have to listen to her complain when her comments are in review.

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 2 months ago

When women comment they call it "complaining". When men do it they call it "feedback". Go figure.

I love these Squawkbacks! "Go stand by the railroad tracks" - that cracks me up.

Biden will do a lot of yelling because he doesn't have a point about anything; that's what he does when he doesn't have anything to say..."Just yell, people will think you're serious." Ryan will make mincemeat out of Biden; afterwards, Biden will go into hiden'!
