Evan why are you such a puppet?

Do you actually think any "GOP" criminal cares about you and yours?

Do you actually think calling someone a "liberal" discounts what they say?

Wake up dude, both parties are a scam. They don't give a damn about people outside of their gated community mansions.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53986792


I have heard those same talking points over and over and over and over....

I don't care which party puts the policies in place that actually help the state. I don't fully trust either...

but whichever side makes the environment business friendly, and lowers taxes, which creates jobs, lowers unemployment etc etc, I will applaud for that action
 Quoting: *Evan


When was the last time you went to an impoverished section of North Carolina? Or an area with a high amount of minorities? What are these parts of the state like?

Why is it the affluent areas always seem to be the ones improving with GOP control?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53986792


Why does East Durham look the same no matter who is in control?
 Quoting: Aunt Arky


Wow, I grew up near Club Blvd and no matter who is in office it gets worse by the year. Yes, they try to build nice homes to lure nice folks in but the trash runs them out. I moved north when I got married. That city scares me!

You dumb ass. Once the long-term unemployed stopped getting unemployment, they were removed from being counted among the unemployed. Unemployment rates only count people receding unemployment insurance. The real statistic would be who actually has a job. The GOP counts on stupid people like you to look at graph and have no understanding of what it means. It's like closing the soup kitchen and then claiming the number of hungry people has declined.

It's hilarious, but also tragic, that so many of you continue to buy into the false left-right paradigm. The Republicans aren't going to improve things any more than the Democrats. The system is rotten to the core, corrupt beyond all repair. All we can do is await the inevitable collapse.

If you are paying attention at all to anything these Republicrats say about "unemployment," you are deluding yourself. As has been pointed out several times here, ONLY those still getting unemployment checks are counted as unemployed. Lots of people are still out of work, long after their unemployment benefits ran out. Others never got it, or bothered to apply for it, for whatever reason. The real unemployment rate is at least 25%.

Democrats and Republicans constantly brag about the great things they've accomplished, the jobs they've created, how the unemployment rate is down, job "growth" is up, etc. It's all nonsense. Those who buy into the "liberal" and "conservative" game swallow up this rhetoric like hungry infants. How stupid can you all be?

Industry has left America, thanks to NAFTA and other free trade agreements. The continued flow of immigrants- both legal and illegal- drive down wages of blue collar workers, which is exactly what these greedy plutocrats want. What "jobs" do you imagine the formerly unemployed in North Carolina have magically found? There are no new factories. Infrastructure isn't being repaired anywhere. So what are they doing?

Re: GOP takes full control of NC.....and unemployment rates fall off the table......UPDATED: NC Teacher minimum pay to be increased 14%
Unemployment benefits went from 99 to 26 weeks. That's a huge drop in the unemployment rates. How many of 20000 jobs are part time? Did NC bribe businesses to operate in their state (many cities do this using tax breaks and loans)? Then end game is to make the employment figures look good and to get paid back in income/wage taxes, sometimes hidden taxes and increased taxes that workers will end up paying.

Large city governments, county governments, and state governments have people that travel all over the world trying to set up special deals to attract businesses. This isn't anything new. They set up deals to attract businesses which usually mean no taxes for a certain number of years for the business and sometimes for executives.

The federal government on the other hand seems to do all it can to export jobs out of the country.

Who ends up paying taxes? Everything you buy is taxed at different levels. If some business tax increases, you, the consumer pays for it. If they did away with all taxes except income on people the tax rate would be near 70% (all taxes including state, federal, country, city, etc). I think only a state should be able to tax and the federal government should have to answer to state legislatures to their expenses. Local expenses should be paid by the state and not by federal government. Deficit spending is not a good government.
