That's right folks. 140,000 more victims of 'big business'...meaning 140,000 jobs were created, all providing paychecks and some providing health insurance.

Liberals will be upset with this, as they succeeded in driving 'big business' out of America, only to see the middle class get squeezed more.

If Kerry wins this election, let's hope he passes Kyoto for auto workers, increases regulation on small businesses so that potential employees get 'help', and finally let him raise taxes on the rich, with hopes that they consume less.

Im ready either way. A Bush win means some chance to grow, a Kerry win means a march into Socialism, but an excuse to chuckle as results of Kerry's policies show themselves.

Wow. 140,000 jobs created. Our labor pool grows by 150,000 per month. That means only 10,000 more people are without jobs!

Wow....only an additional 10,000 idle workers.....that is probably the best Bush can do!

Bush is the worst pResident in the history of the US.

Actually, the link says 175,000.

I did that, JUST so you do what you did.

Your rebuttal is now null and void.

PS: Dont worry. If Kerry wins and signs Kyoto and raises taxes, the very people who you claim to want to help will do "well".

A Bush win means more outsourcing, and more "WIll you have fries with that?" or "Come on in to WalChinaMart".

The jobs are junk.
This country is becoming junk.

Bush has failed. Instead of FIRST going after and destroying all of the terrorists, he sends us into Iraq which could have waited, as we have seen. Maybe the Iraquis should have deposed them themselves.

Now we have the filthy terrorists beheading GOOD AMERICANS who are over there trying to help because they had faith in the nincompoop in the White House. The same Filthy terrorists that SHOULD BE DEAD NOW, if the chumps in the White House knew what should have been done first.

Bush is incompetent. His cabinet is incompetent.

The jobs are crap.

Bush and his administration is CRAP.

JEDI, you are an intelligent man, who I respect. WHY DON'T YOU SEE THIS MY FRIEND?????

Now ago have a drink and think about it.

Have you been following these forecasts, Jedi? Last month, I think the forecast overshot the actual result by 60,000. Let's wait and see the numbers on Friday before getting too excited. Also, as a previous poster noted, these numbers need to be looked at relative to growth in the population of eligible workers.

JEDI:

140,000 NEW jobs is still NEGATIVE job growth. You need to generate 150,000 NEW jobs a month just to employ the new people entering the job market.

So the net net is 10,000 people who finished school, decided to re-enter the job market, or are entering the private sector had new job waiting for them.

Great success...

1946...

Didnt you hear Kerry say "I can't stop all outsourcing"???

Did you support NAFTA, GATT, WTO or trade with China? Kerry did.

1946, I do see many things wrong with the Bush administration, but I dont see how Kerry hopping in and raising taxes will help Americans find work.

However if Kerry wins, I FULLY SUPPORT KYOTO, TAX HIKES, NAFTA,GATT, WTO. I will want America to learn a lesson, and that might make me a staunch Liberal. Who knows?

MIlli...

The number is 175,000 according to the link.

Also, if Kerry wins you will be glad to know that I:

*Will insist on passing KYOTO.

*Will insist on tax hikes for the 'rich', including small business owners.

*Will suppot NAFTA, GATT, WTO, just like Kerry has.

Will you?

HOch...

I will give you one thing: You know how to stay on message. Now who does that remind me of?

BTW, Kerry raising taxes and regulations will not help working families.

I do see many things wrong with the Bush administration, but

I see a lot of people on this board who say, "I really want to vote against Bush. I hate a lot of the things he's done, but I just can't vote for Kerry because of X, Y, or Z."

How is this any different than ABB? It's just ABK.

You know what you have with Bush and he's NOT a fiscal conservative and many of these people realize that Iraq is a Quagmire. Yet, they're willing to give Bush 4 more years to do more of the same or worse?

Doesn't make sense to me. I guess it's the Devil you know kinda thing.

The difference is, many of us can disagree with much of what he has done and still find it in our hearts to respect and support him. We can also find much in him that is good, not only about him but for the country. The same cannot be said for your guy. I have yet to hear anyone post anything relevant he has done. You can post all you want about what he SAYS but you cannot point to one significant accomplishment.

"You know what you have with Bush and he's NOT a fiscal conservative and many of these people realize that Iraq is a Quagmire. Yet, they're willing to give Bush 4 more years to do more of the same or worse?"

Funny, 75% or more of the national reserve and guard people who have spent time in Iraq want their commander in chief to remain. These guys know better than anyone....I repeat....anyone, who will best serve this nation in time of war.

I am a one issue voter this time. I don't care if Bush killed mother Theresa. If he can keep my children safe, and I think he has and will, then he is who I want. I know dang well Kerry couldn't do it. I know this in my heart and soul. John Kerry is a snake oil salesman if there ever was one. He may have known all of 4 months hardship in his entire pampered life and he hasn't showed one lick of backbone in my view. He is a loser who will subjugate our security to the corrupt and useless UN. He will make us less safe by returning us to the 90s when as long as it was just GIs getting killed, everything was hunky dory. No thanks.

I am voting for George W. Bush tomorrow because he is my President and my commander in chief and ot the two of them, I trust him to have the intestinal fortitude, moral courage and steadfast conviction to keep this country safe.

Cheers,

Vile

3MMM...

A fair and good question.

I did say that Bush has done some things wrong, but I think it is a big stretch to qualify that as an "anybody but Kerry" vote. On the 'big things', I am with Bush:

*War on terror.

*War in Iraq (unless we ever adopt Buchanan style policy, which would get our asses OUT of everyone's business)

*Tax cuts, vs vilifying wealth.

*Freedom of choice, in schools and social security.

*Protecting babies from partial birth killing.

*Drugs for seniors. If we can give billions to Israel and Africa, then we can spend billion on our old folks.
***

Where I disagree:

*Immigration/Borders.

*Interventionist foreign policy.

*Too much foreign aid.

3MM, those items are too small for me to divorce Bush, especially when Kerry would be the same.

If you look at the "ABB" voters, they rail against corporate power, free trade, and foreign trade, yet their candidate MIRRORS Bush on these big issues.
