The other aspect is exempt salaried personel. We used to get compensated at a straight time rate for our overtime work, which was voluntary. We are now forced to work 10% - 20% overtime without compensation. So not only are there people not working, some get to work for free!!

What Barry & most lefties want to do is to attack those who are successful and reward failures. That drags down the economy.

And, I'm no McCain fan, just as I wasn't a Bush fan but at least they didn't leave policy making in the hands of tax cheats and other assorted losers and Marxists who are determined to take every earned penny from the self sufficient and turn it over to a growing pool of lazy n'er do well leeches.
Bush has invoked executive privilege in refusing to allow his political adviser, Karl Rove, and his former counsel, Harriet Miers, to testify under oath before a Senate panel about their involvement in the recent firings of eight U.S. attorneys. http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2007/...onjures_u.html

I could give a rats fat rump about McCain he lost. The guy that won said he was going to close gitmo, fix the economy and bring our troops back. Then all that hope and change BS. Dont also tell me that BO is just one guy. He has his nose in everything yet only increased spending.
As for unemployment 1/2 of the folks that are out of work dont want to or unable to perform well enough to hold a job. The St Louis paper runs ads every day for help wanted. I will worry when that page is blank. We now have a decent pool of workers to pick from that have the experiance, skill and talent to do what we ask. We pay union wage or better. I will be hiring 2 or more journeymen when I get back from the beautiful Rocky mountain national forest. Sitting in a lawn chair looking at the last of the snow still left in the mountains regards.

Who was the only president since Nixon to have a claim of executive privilege overturned by a federal court?
Hint: Roger has a shrine to him in his living room and doesn't find this president's numerous claims of executive privilege to be the least bit disturbing.
