    I am a proud black female conservative. Rick Santorum is my favorite. Followed closely by Sarah Palin, I just so much in common with both of them.

    RGIII scores!!!!

    Honey Bear is a kid at UH.

    baylorbear is an irredeemable d-bag from Dallas who throws around his parents' money and looks down upon those not born into as much money as he was while also hating those who were born into more money than he was.*

    *This describes a sizeable portion of Baylor students. Real talk.

    Take this bet. He likely isn't gay, and even if he is the bet includes no travel clause.

    Honey Bear was Ronny, and might also be Trader Jorge, who I believe went to Rice.

    I don't know anything about Jorge, but I've been told that in Ronny's early posts he claimed to be a student at UH. He only later adopted the character that Ronny (and now HB) portrays. I think it was moestavern who told me that.

    Somebody has to manufacture that Big Mac. It didn't come with the bun, patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, & special sauce all together.

    Sounds like a simple case of bad data. Do you really think unemployment is going to move 1.2 percentage points in a month without some big calamitous driver? Bad policy might cause unemployment in the long-term, but a short-term swing like that would require a a short-term driver. So, the data is bad.

    And, since the last election, I've lost confidence in Gallup being able to handle their data anyway, so I won't be surprised.

    Just people trolling bob because they know it annoys him. It's stupid.

    Maybe it's all of the college kids quitting their summer jobs and going back to college?

    i find it amusing that people who thought unemployment discounted marginally attached labor force participants, now won't look to that for a first reason why.

    but here's a hint as to why: Gallup is basically a seasonally unadjusted opinion poll.

    I am not surprised unemployment would go up as we went over the fiscal cliff and payroll taxes went up. It's going to hit the economy at some point.

    Republicans have to take responsibility because to some degree they wanted unemployment to go up as a means to stick it to th POTUS

    It is stupid that he does it.

    It's also true. He's been PigMiller as well.

    What's also stupid are threads like this, for obvious reasons.
