My observation is that the conservative talk show radio must be heavily funded by gold sellers who want to pump up price of gold by spreading fears of financial collapse and by weapons dealers who wish to create fear of anarchy and government infringement so that they can cash in on gun sales.
Caveat: When I read "Giving a shit about unemployment" I think "do something" about unemployment. Is this what you mean?
Fixing the economy is actually very easy. I'd start out by denying any type of welfare (including things like unemployment insurance, food stamps, section 8 housing, Obamaphones) for anyone who owns or has owned as far back as motor vehicle records go any vehicle whose final assembly point in not in USA or Canada, or by GM, Ford or Chrysler in Mexico. There needs to be personal consequences to buying foreign. If for some reason people still buy imported cars, I'd tell all the Korean and Japanese automakers that they are now required to have ofsetting exports from the US to make up for any imports to the US (which would include auto parts). If they don't like that, they should have thought of that when they bombed Pearl Harbor and made Boeing make an airplane wing in Japan in order to sell their airplane there. Then I'd spend whatever it takes to use our domestic energy sources (especially natural gas) to replace imported oil. Things like bus systems (municipal and school), delivery services (UPS, USPS, Fed Ex), and probably some taxi fleets can all be converted to use domestic natural gas instead of imported oil. The use of home heating oil would be phased out as well. Except for Alaska, I think the rest of the US can use heat pumps or natural gas. I'd also deport all 12 million illegal aliens and seal the border. A few helicopter gunships, some land mines, and some military personnel would be all that's really needed. Anyone attempting to enter the country illegally would be shot and left for dead. I'd greatly reduce or eliminate all welfare programs for able bodied people. Oh yeah, and "Stress" is not a disability. People currently on welfare can pickfruit or clean offices just as good, once you take away their welfare. I'd raise the age at which one can collect social security in any form by 5 years, effective immediately. I'd do away with all union labor requirements on government jobs, as well as a complete elimination of and affirmative action programs or minority procurement programs, because not only are they racist, but it's expensive. If you think prisons will be overcrowded, think again, since bullets are cheaper than prison cells. I'd also repeal so many regulations that I could not possibly list them here, but there area lot of stupid regulations like stuff about lead paint, asbestos, gas cans, etc. I would also ban immigration and send all the H1B workers home. When unemployment is this high, we don't need guest workers or more people.
First off, unemployment insurance is not welfare. Working folk are forced to pay into the insurance, and only those that have paid for the insurance may utilize it, and its always short term. Well, it was until prez bush extended it at the turn of the century
Secondly, I had to stop reading that crap about consequences for buying foreign cars, what the hell is that?
Sounds more like a coke or speed binge to me. Boozers don't usually go with paranoia intermixed with grandiose visions of power although with neocons it's hard to tell day to day thinking from substance abuse.

It's better to have the "final" assembly in the US, even though the parts are foreign-made?
I would have read the rest of your post, but it appeared to be one long-ass paragraph of rant.
actually that was an honest response and it's not all that wrong IMO.
I agree with the import/export imbalance and the need to shift at least fleet vehicles to natgas.
Illegal aliens are driving down wages and "need to go" as it were. But once they're deported it's critical that they stay deported . . .
There's no reason to raise SSA to 67 of course. SSA was designed for 62 and has $2.6T in its trust fund to pay out. Young workers are more productive than old generally, so it's good to just pension the old off and let them spend money into the consumer economy and get some velocity back.
The typical rant for union-busting, lead paint and asbestos was appreciated, but I do agree that gas cans have gotten over-regulated, LOL.
And Obama's buddies in the Senate and house were all in approval for his budget... oh wait..
That is not the point. The statement was Obama did not present a budget. He did. The rest is politics as usual. Now you can argue it was a lame budget-but that is different than claiming he never did present a budget-he did.
hmmmm ... I may be a bit biased, but I sure have not seen a budget from Lord Barry for each of his terms that he was responsible for ... weird ... when has that ever happened before? I sure hope Holder don't come looking for me.
Don't forget, Haelth Care was slammed through in crushing fashion ... free from such silly fetters as a budget ... or morals.
lol, my bad, I should have been more specific ... a budget that was balanced, with all of the welfare programs paid for, that was voted on and passed.
anyone seen a budget from Lord Barry's Gang at any time since they rolled up in that DC joint and started slangin' dat shizzle?
I askeda link or proof for Lord Barry's 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 budgets. Nothing more
Obama has had budget proposals, which Republicans claim he has never presented.
that would be a great link to share, thanks!
Nice try -next you will claim his budget should explain the reason for existance of man too. But the President does not pass a budget-that is the job of congress. His job is to submit one and in your multiple quotes, some insulting, you suggest he has not -he has -for every year he has been in power. Which makes me think you are just trolling, for you should know that or watch Fox News too much and believed that nonsense and now can't admit you are wrong.
Oh you mean like all the corporate welfare?
Show me a balanced budget from any one.
yes, I do include all forms of welfare.
there will never be a balanced budget due to the welfare spending required by the liberal leftists, and currupt GOP fatcats. They are buying votes and will not allow that to end. Joe S. Pack will keep getting his ass kicked.
