Hey, I've got a great idea! Why don't we split the country down the middle and let all the leftists have one side and let all the normal people have the other side. The leftist can have their welfare/socialist state and we can have business-friendly, hard-working, self-reliant PRODUCERS on our side.......................should take about six months before the left runs out of resources trying to carry everybody on government's back and then they'll start tunneling under the Mississippi River to get what WE'RE producing on our side! Oh, yeah, that's right, WE'VE still got a military to stop them! :lol:

Once again, U.S. News & World Report has ranked The University of Texas at Austin’s College of Education number one in the nation among public university graduate education programs. The College of Education was the first – and has been the only – UT-Austin college or school, of the ones ranked annually by the magazine, to capture a number one spot.

The 2013 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools ranks the College of Education third overall nationally, behind Vanderbilt University and Harvard University. After The University of Texas at Austin’s College of Education, the next public university to appear on the list is UCLA, which comes in at sixth.


Evidently they are smart enough to do this:

Shows me that there a lot more ignorant people than knowledgable people in the country. Touchy feely nanny state is fine and dandy, if you can afford it, which we can not.

Guitar, if you read the last paragraph from your last reference, you'd see the lowest unemployment rate of slightly more than 3% was in the Midland-Odessa and Amarillo areas. THAT is heavily oil/gas production country. THAT is what Romney wanted more of for the rest of the country. Good, high-paying jobs with good benefits. EXACTLY what the country needs and EXACTLY what Obama does NOT want for us. It's hard to keep a well-paid, well-fed, busy man dependent on government largesse....... 8)

I get YOUR point, Tigereye. But, if you read the rest of the report it shows that all the other areas of employment have increased to put those industries at the best employment rates in the country! I realize that oil/gas industries are a big deal in Texas. But the MOST gains were in other industries.

Your right, Guitar, but I've known that the Texas economy is the BEST in the country all through this recession. That's not just Texas brag either. Our economy is more diverse than most states so, when one segment slumps, the others can more readily step up to pick up the slack, so to speak. We have lots less governmental interference in business. We are a 'right to work' state so unions don't hold businesses hostage. If they wish to strike, they may, but they are better served to negotiate as several have discovered recently. You can call unemployed folks who are ready and eager to work "scabs" if you wish, but they can get the job done in the absence of those who want more feathers for their nests in a 'molting' economy.

True blue? Hardly. It's actually half and half. Your chart and your gloating is based on the electoral college, not popular vote. Popular vote was only a 2.5% difference. Not as true blue as you think, and definitely not getting bluer as Obama had 69 million against the McCain/Palin 59 million in 08. Getting less blue if you look at statistics.

Vindication is overrated, especially in a losing cause, so it brings no satisfaction to have predicted that the Federal Housing Administration would sooner or later threaten taxpayers. That day has arrived. Safely past the election, the feds announced Friday that the FHA's liabilities exceed its assets by at least $16.3 billion—and the gap could reach $93.7 billion in the worst case.

Yet it's worth recalling that when we warned about FHA's troubles in September 2009, we got an accounting lecture from HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan and a letter from FHA Commissioner at the time, David Stevens, that we were "just plain wrong." He added that, "I can say undoubtedly that the FHA fund is playing a key role in the housing recovery and poses no immediate risk to the American taxpayer."


Expect more bad news soon. Like the great lie that our countries debt was driven by the cost of healthcare, the even greater lie that banks and wall street caused the economic collapse and that taxing the rich more, the poor less will save us, expect more of the same from the next 4 years from Pennsylvania Avenue.

That's disturbing. I've already been convinced though that you can link just about anything. This comparison is pretty interesting though.
