Once you get down into the details it's not that good.

the number of Americans not in the labor force increased 296,000 between January and February.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) labels people who are unemployed and no longer looking for work as “not in the labor force,” including people who have retired on schedule, taken early retirement, or simply given up looking for work.

The increase marks the second month in a row, after rising in January from 88.8 million in December.
Those not in the labor force had declined in December from 88.9 million in November.

The nation's unemployment rate decreased to 7.7 percent in February, down from 7.9 percent in January. Overall unemployment “has shown little movement, on net, since September 2012,” the Labor Department said.

So after all the whining, and Rand Pauls's waste of a 13 hour filibuster For Nothing

We finally find out the truth, That Obama will not use drones on American Terrorists

He never could, it was all lies they were running on,
Rand Paul knew they couldn't be used here, but he went like a fool


Eric Holder clarifies policy on drone attacks on U.S. soil

Senator ends filibuster of Brennan CIA nomination
Thu, Mar 7 2013

WASHINGTON | Thu Mar 7, 2013 2:25pm EST

(Reuters) - Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday that President Barack Obama would not have the authority to order a drone to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil who was "not engaged in combat."

In a two-sentence letter to Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul, Holder said he had heard Paul wanted to know if the president could use a drone to kill an American outside of an emergency situation.

"The answer to that question is no," Holder wrote.

He was responding in part to Paul's extensive critique of a letter the attorney general sent to the senator, which was made public on Tuesday. Holder said then that drone strikes against Americans on U.S. soil were not anticipated, but he did not rule them out in circumstances similar to the September 11 attacks in 2001.

On Wednesday, Paul spent nearly 13 hours speaking on the Senate floor in an attempt to block the confirmation of John Brennan as the next CIA director in protest at the use of drones in targeted killings.

The Obama administration has increasingly used drone strikes to target militants overseas, particularly in Pakistan and Yemen.

As the Attorney General made clear, the President does not have the legal authority to do that.

After six weeks of requests and a 13 hour filibuster.

Was it really that difficult a question for an ex "professor of constitutional law"?

you gotta give one thing to Rand Paul on his filibuster. He used it in the way it is suppose to be used. 13 hours of yapping about what he wanted to say is pretty proud. We haven't seen this in a while. Good for him.

McCain could never pull that off unless he wore 7 depends and pissed himself every 27 minutes.



Of course the very notion that Obama would even consider a drone strike on US soil is a thought left to complete and total f*#king idiots.

"13 hours of yapping about what he wanted to say is pretty proud. We haven't seen this in a while. Good for him. "

Agreed, and he's getting universal praise from the liberal media for doing so - mainly because it returns the filibuster back to the parameters originally intended, instead of the gutless cloture motion repubs have been relying on lately.

Probably the best (albeit inadvertent) demonstration of how filibuster reform would actually work that a repub has ever offered.

Ron you really should delete that post, It is 100% racist, Whether you realized it or not.

It does you and all of supertopo a serious discredit.

That is true but unfortunately it may not be true of a future president.. the illegality of such an action should be made very clear to all administrations present and future.

I believe you ron. I never grew up around anti african-american Racism. The places I grew up I was the minority and the victim of the racism. I was a Haole and a Gussuk as a child.

Kill Haole Day
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In some of Hawaiʻi's schools, the last day of school before summer is reputedly known as Kill Haole Day.[1] On Kill Haole Day, school children harass and sometimes assault white children. The origins of the day are unknown, but the tradition dates back to the 1950s.

SO I don't always recognize it when I see it either. But I did clearly recognize it in that one. It's a sadly common meme. One that most folks who have spent any time looking into racism or worse having it forced on them in America recognize instantly. One that would be publicly embarrassing to have on this website.
