I listen to talk radio, I hear citizens calling in and using the word revolution.

I see it on billboards and hear it on tv shows.

Never in my life time have I ever heard such strong language. The langage is coming from socker moms, blue collar & white collar citizens.

Government is oppressing the citizens of the U.S. and Democrats in power are leading the charge.

That word comes up a lot because you're their target audience Bob.

The republicans have been acting like they lost a war- since they lost the election. And, that's all that happened, they lost a fair and square election.

There were no accusations of mass fraud or need for Supreme Court rulings to make the decision. Democrats starting winning by taking Congress back, fair and square in 2006. We win more seats in 2008 and the Presidency.

40 days in, and the republicans started funding tea party efforts. Not when Bush came with the bank bailout.

A black President that's accomplishing stuff and knows how to get things done. The Republicans spent ten years doing nothing but smoke and mirrors and it crashed in 2008. They broke the piggy bank.

Now, after the economy is starting to upswing and we are getting things done for middle class and working class people, they want to charge revolution.

Bring it on. Its time we let the South go its own way and all of you that hate the Feds come go with them.

I need a break from this madness.

Stock market rebound shows its age at 1-year mark

NEW YORK — A year after the stock market hit bottom and began a spectacular comeback, it’s getting harder to dazzle investors.

Monday was a perfect example of what the market is all about. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 14 and the other major indexes were narrowly mixed as stocks stalled after a big rally on Friday.

There was upbeat news, the kind that often sends stock higher: Insurer American International Group Inc. reached a deal to sell one of its major foreign divisions to MetLife Inc. for $15.5 billion. And Royal Dutch Shell and PetroChina offered to buy Australia’s Arrow Energy Ltd. for $3 billion in cash and stock.

But investors who rocketed the Dow up 61.2 percent from the
12-year low of 6,547.05 it hit last March 9 weren’t impressed enough to extend the previous day’s big advance.

Jobs Report

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- As severe winter storms crippled East Coast cities, the U.S. economy shed thousands of jobs in February, according to a government report released Friday. But the unemployment rate remained unchanged.

The Labor Department said the economy lost 36,000 jobs in the month, fewer than the 68,000 jobs economists were expecting, according to a survey conducted by Briefing.com.

But there was no significant change in the number of unemployed workers, and the unemployment rate held steady at 9.7%. Economists surveyed by Briefing.com were expecting an increase to 9.8%.

"The jobs numbers themselves show a pretty steady improvement across most categories," said Bob Brusca, economist at FAO Economics. "Through the blizzard of jobs data, it's a lot easier to connect the dots to a positive story than to a negative story."

Brusca noted that even in sectors that are not hiring, the pace of job loss has slowed to close to the lowest level since the recession began in December 2007.

GDP
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The U.S. economy grew at a slightly faster pace than originally thought during the last three months of 2009, according to a government report Friday.

The nation's gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the nation's economic activity, grew at an annual rate of 5.9% in the quarter, the Commerce Department reported. Economists surveyed by Briefing.com had forecast that the revision would show the same 5.7% growth that was originally reported a month ago.

The report is another sign that the U.S. economy has pulled out of the deepest downturn since the Great Depression. The solid growth, the best improvement for the U.S. economy in more than six years, follows a 2.2% annualized increase in the third quarter. Most economists now agree that the recession probably ended at some point last summer.

Still, the strong end of 2009 wasn't enough to make up for the even larger declines in the first half of the year. For the full year, GDP fell 2.4%, the biggest decline in the annual reading since 1946.

The recovery is widely perceived as fragile. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified to Congress this week that the central bank will need to keep interest rates low in order to support the economy.

Retail Sales

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Retail sales rose in February, the government said Friday, surprising economists who expected a decline.

The Commerce Department said total retail sales edged up 0.3% to $355.5 billion last month. Economists surveyed by Briefing.com had anticipated that February sales would drop 0.2%.

February's increase showed that Americans were still making it to the stores despite the snow and cold weather last month and customers were splurging on electronics for the Super Bowl, said Chris Donnelly, a senior executive at consulting firm Accenture.

February retail sales jumped 3.9% compared to the same month in 2009.

"This is consistent with the trend we've been seeing," said Donnelly. "We've seen a gradual thaw in the consumer pocketbook, and there is pent up demand -- we are certainly in a more optimistic place in February 2010 than in February 2009."

Consumer spending accounts for two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, and related reports such as retail sales are used to gauge whether a recovery is underway.

Obama was sworn in by the Chief Justice of Supreme Court. He's legit.

His mother was an American citizen- he is an American citizen.
