“100% Correct. My father said the same thing. I was crying to him one day about how rough I was having with what I was making. He and my mother were retired and still living on the little farm they raised us on. He told me to be quiet and then showed what he and my mother lived on. It was less than $500/mth with no gov help. I immediately shut my mouth and never complained again.”

“Noted but that's not how it's determined, for EVERYone isn't in the Pool (of Employment).

Pssst, it's never been determined that way.

Prior to the advent of CPUs, Home CPUs, search engines,...you'd have a point somewhat.”

boonjava on Dec 6, 2013 at 12:19:28

“Of course not. Everyone who bothers to post here knows that it's just 7% of those participating in the work-force. Able-bodied working age individuals sometimes don't participate because of disillusionment about job prospects, but others don't participate for other reasons, including child/family care, education and personal/emotional reasons.

But the numbers are the numbers. And if a greater percentage of people seeking employment have it, then that's an upward trend.”

“Well not every capable person wants to work. There is still a tradition of stay at home moms here. Sometimes stay at home dads.”

“That still doesn't explain the total, abject hatred for her. As I said, I do not like or dislike her. In fact I kind of think of her as a quitter because she gave up being Gov. of Alaska. But that does not warrent the total hatred of her. I still wonder if liberals arent secretly afrid of her.”

Vikk121 on Dec 5, 2013 at 15:18:41

“Well, the fear is what if she did run and what if she ran against someone like say, Dennis Kucinich. Do you realize Kucinich (sp?) could, in such a scenario, become the President b/c of her? See?”

“If you noticed LA and San Frncisco were at the top. No fracking around those two cities.”

Sapphire Jones on Dec 5, 2013 at 07:28:05

“There is fracking going on south of San Francisco.   CA is already water stressed and the fracking going on there is added to the problem.   The middle of CA, the breadbasket of the US is drying up.  And it's not to say fracking is the cause in every city, there are places that are dry to begin with, but fracking exacerbates this problem.  Fracking is going on in 34 states.  Last year I left my state to get away from it.  Happy to be in a frack-free state now.”

“Both sides are making a big deal about people they interview about either gaining or losing insurance. I honestly would like to see people interviewed who did not have insurance 4 months ago, and now have a real affordable, workable policy in their hand. I do not care how many people have logged on to the site;I want to see real people who have actually gained an insurance policy and how much it costs and who is actually paying for it.”

“I'm certainly not whining about anything. Hell, I'm on Medicare and a supplement. I merely asked a question as to how many are losing their insurance. That must have hit a nerve with some people. Also, if companies have to start dropping insurance because it doesn't meet new guidlines what has been gained. I would be mad also if I had to pay for dental or pregnancy or birth control or any of those things I did not want.”
