Try those answers with YOUR boss. I’m not going to tell you.
You’ll never know and you can’t prove it.

Texyank on October 31, 2009 at 1:24 AM

Yep, I still have my job. The Obama Administration Stop Lossed me. Add me to the list of folks who owe their livleyhood to the one.

(I know, you think I’m lying because he swore he would end the practice of Stop Loss. Hey, a job saved is a job gained)

Hey Uncle Barry, can we talk about the extra 500 bucks a month you said you were going to give to folks who were SLed? What? Too soon? Okay, whenever you can get around to it, I figure you owe me 6 months of Stop Loss incentive pay.

Don’t work in the defense sector. These are the jobs this SOB is quietly KILLING. My DH will be officially laid off Tuesday. So much for two masters degrees. If you read the UK news, this is what EU socialism brings…cut defense,reward slackers, kill the ailing, cut defense, kiss Iran’s bum!!

YankeeinCA on October 31, 2009 at 2:29 AM

What is “DH”?

LiquidH2O on October 31, 2009 at 2:42 AM

It’s the new math Romeo. It can’t be questioned. Like Barney said: “I don’t think it’s a bad thing that the bad loans occurred, it was an effort to keep prices from falling too fast. That’s a policy.” Nine more bank failures and new mark to mythology guidelines on CRE loans announced by Fed regulators tonight btw. RECESSION’S OVER!!!

Bankruptcy Filing Expected in Days; Government Infusion of $2.3 Billion at Risk

The $2.3 billion in taxpayer money spent to save CIT Group Inc. is likely to be wiped out, as the lender prepares to file for bankruptcy protection in a high-stakes restructuring plan aimed at keeping the firm in business.

People familiar with the plan said CIT, a major lender to small businesses, intends to file for bankruptcy-court protection in New York within days, perhaps as early as Sunday or Monday.

With $71 billion in assets, CIT would have the fifth-largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history, trailing only those of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., Washington Mutual Inc., Worldcom Inc. and General Motors Corp. CIT’s Utah bank, which has about $10 billion in assets, wouldn’t be part of the bankruptcy filing.

One loser from a bankruptcy would be the U.S. Treasury. Late last year it injected $2.3 billion of funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program to help stabilize the lender, which was weighed down by billions of dollars of bad student loans and subprime mortgages. The government investment is likely to be wiped out.

When did Major Garrett start working for The Onion?

Can’t tell the difference, nonsense is nonsense.

Only Democrats and fools buy this fairy tale.

Hey look, I just saved 10,000,000 jobs.

Michelle Bachman is calling for another visit in Washington D.C. from the public to walk through the Congress halls on Thursday in time for the Health Scam vote.

Heh, the funny thing is NO ONE outside of FOX will even question their fairy dust data.

I can hear the left’s reasoning now, **Lighten up, they are using liberal math,ok? Besides it’s just a lie,… not a lie-lie.**

How could he say something like that and not have his tongue fall out and burst into flames?

SKYFOX on October 31, 2009 at 11:12 AM

I’ve decided to get on the bandwagon. I’m going to SPEND MY WAY TO PROSPERITY! Yep, max out every freaking credit card I have. And then apply form more credit. Then buy a bigger house and a couple of new cars (hybrid of course). If it works for Barry, it should work for me.

GarandFan on October 31, 2009 at 11:44 AM

And they can’t tell their as*es from a hole in the ground, either.

redfoxbluestate on October 31, 2009 at 12:11 PM

Why does the media keep repeating the 40,000.00 number of troops needed for Afghanistan, when the number is 80,000.00? Are the rest of the troops, the other 40,000.00 coming from NATO countries?
