  • Don’t remember even being aware of that .1% jump durnig Bush’s term. Looked in some of the news archives, and didn’t find that much. But perhaps it is because anyone with a lick of sense is still expecting unemployment to continue to rise for probably at least another 6 months. Employment is always the last indicator to turn around in a recession.

    • Hey “Anonymous” dipshit: Why do all your facts end at 1965? Because that’s about when the Republicans and Democrats flipped sides on the issues. Take your “fact” that MLK Jr voted for Eisenhower. Well, Eisenhower also taxed the rich at 90%, expanded social programs, and spoke out against the “military-industrial complex”, a phrase which he coined. Get your “facts” right.

      • (Yes, Eisenhower was a Republican. He was also a “liberal”, in the contemporary sense of the word.)

      • Hey poopdick Thomas. Odd how you mentioned 1965 because idiots and other demo/libs like you are are stuck and cannot get out from the last 50 years. Get YOUR facts right!!!

  • Met you one of your reps today, I can now say that I have a different opinion of people i the professions you all seem to have. You aren’t all money grubbing greedy jerks! Thanks for the education. Will down load a few posters and put them where the will have the most impact!

  • Isn’t in unbelievable that women could not vote well into the 20th century? Shows you how precarious our hold on equality really is. Thanks for helping educate people.
