Not a true view of unemployment, just because many have given up or professionals took Taco bell jobs to get by.It's not the same thing. Family's are moving in together to get by.

40% of the jobs created nationwide in the month of November were government jobs. As usual the Obama Administration is cooking the books by bloating the federal government employment.

Its sad when people see the world with so much negativity. Merry Christmas:) Remember Jesus died on the cross for everyone; every sinner not matter who you are.

To Hey Ray: If you believe in such nonsense, maybe. You must be new to the FBVN, I don`t care about religious fables..... I don`t rain on someone`s parade unless someone like you tries to shove your nonsense down my throat.

I don`t care if the ten commandments are in every public building, I don`t care if every mountain top has a cross but like homosexuality, keep your preferences to yourself, I don`t subscribe.

Happy Holidays Everyone.

To Ray:

During Roman times,. if you were caught bribing a public official, they would cut off your ear, put a bag over your head with a wild animal inside and toss you in the river...

If you were caught stealing, they would cut off your hand...

What do you think would happen if you were caught conning and swindling Roman citizens?...

A religion is formed.

Hey Ray - I have slammed Ray several times - but he is 100% correct here - remembering Jesus while a great thing to do, and needs to be done year-round, does not have any bearing on Ray's statement.

Forbes, that bastion of liberalism, says federal employees declined by 92,000 over the past year. That kind of makes that 40% of jobs created nationwide in November were government jobs seem suspect. Can we ask Rush to re-check his numbers?

(Steve Forbes, publisher of Forbes magazine, ran for the nomination for president as a Republican. He's a conservative.)

In actuality, nothing in the constitution says "separation of church and state" it says "government shall not establish". This was done because the Church of England was politically involved with the nations affairs. When the Church of England broke off from the Catholic church and formed the Anglican Church, affairs of state became a church matter.

Our founding fathers saw this as a problem and wrote the "establish" as a safe guard of religion being all to powerful in affairs of state. In my opinion, the ten commandments, crosses on mountatins like Mount Solidad do not violate the establish clause.

An easy way to solve this "petty" problem by some is for government to honor "all" religions, which they currently do but I don`t hear any complaints over that.

Every day across the country, government meeting are opened by a bennediction or prayer usually conducted by various faiths, one day might me a Rabbi, another a Minister, Priest and so on....

Really I don`t see what the big deal is all about. I being of no faith really care less if a cross, star of david or a crescent moon is on a public facility. If I`m not bothered by it, why should anyone else care.

We as a nation have bigger fish to fry (it`s friday, a joke) than to constantly have to deal with this nonsense.

Just my opinion.

Your opinion Ray, both on and off topic, is spot on.

Facts, figures, math and science have never been held in high esteem by conservatives. Why should unemployment figures be any different?

I am so glad Duck Dynasty nonsense has been put to rest, I thought free speech and choice were suddenly eliminated behind closed doors in the dead of night by Reid, Pelosi and Boxer.

Too bad for GLAAD.

Pessimistic: With exception of you and a few others, nobody really has a clue. Now I don`t know if DR will print this, sort of off topic but PESS made the point.

People who live in Fallbrook really have no clue, their community is no differently than Toledo, Newark or Memphis, just smaller in scale. You contunue to cling to the motion that Fallbrook is some friendly community when in actuality, it`s far from it.

Drugs can be acquired just about anyehere, on weekends, you can go by the dumpsters by the Woman`s club and watch the prostitutes both male, female and transvestites or the Pico Promanade. Go to the canyons within Fallbrook and watch these unmarked vans pull up alongside the fields where girls as young as twelve service the migrants.

Walk down any alley way downtown for behind insustrial buindings and count the homeless and passed out drunks. Go to Live Oak Park and risk getting shot by a banger or knifed by some tweaker.

Apartment complexes complete with live farm animals and run down so bad that even the Tijuana Code enforcement would condem them.

Business leaving in droves because they can`t stay in business selling tortillas, flap meat and corn. Fallbrook especially the downtown area is starting to resemble an old ghost mining town.

Fallbtook or Peyton Place? I forget.

And the worst of all, these "hoity toties" who live in their hills with large gates and mean dogs continue to utter the stupid phrase (Fallbrook, the friendly village") and exclusively shop in Temecula or Murietta.

Like me or not, call me what you want but I just tell it the way it is without soaft soaping my words. It`s reality folks, deal with it or live with it.

I have heard of "new math" when I was in school but I never heard of "democratic math".

I learned that to survive, you need to work, so you need to have a job that creates income.

I learned you can`t spend money you don`t have, can land you in jail.

I guess I flunked "democratic math", I wonder what democratic science is, the earth is still flat?

And as far as facts are concerned, democrats create them to suit their lame positions.

End global warming, silence democrats, worse emissions than cows.

Way back when I was in the U.S. Army during the caucasian Carter administration, my drill instructor advised all of us that the pay stinks, don`t think about marriage or kids until you receive your third stripe, made sense than and still does today.

The point of this story is all these clowns asking fifteen bucks to flip burgers and stuff burritos, nonsense. Jobs and wages are based on many things like experience, education, time on the job, ability to command, lead a crew and so on, not how many "ninos" you can have in a year.

When I was a kid, I got a job as a copy boy for Mike Royko, a reporter, a very good one with a paper in Chicago. Most of my writing style was influenced by him. Today if he was alive, he would be hated by Fallbrookians as much as I because we tell the truth.

I worked hard and moved from minimum wage at the time which I think was $2.25 to $3.25 but I know this job was not a career, just one of the stairs of advancement of life. Does anyone in their right mind think that Mc Donalds, Jack in the Box or Del Taco are career opportunities to raise a family, buy a home a the two cars, two kids, a dog and a cat?

These are entery level jobs usually staffed by high school and college kids who need extrs money for school definately not to live on but some (many) who I call the "lazy ones" consider these jobs careers.

Up to the late 1950`s most of everything we used in this country was manufactured here, today everything comes from elsewhere. FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS and not protecting your markets causes unemployment.

Allowing your national assets (business) to leave for metter pastures, Mexico, Taiwan, China because of corrupt hands in pocket politicians who over regulate business to preserve some rare species of cockroach.

Keep electing thease "dumbercrats" and unemployment and poverty will never end, just multiply.

The difference between democrats and republicand reminds me of an old song by Joni Mitchell, "paved paradise".

There is paradise than the democrats let everyone i into pradise, now the republicans must pave paradise to shelter all the ones let into paradise by the democrats.
