The truth about Texas job growth (Liberals, please go look up the definition of “truth” before proceeding)

by editor on August 26, 2011

Obama and his loony tune financial advisers seem to think that doing all things Keynesian will get the economy back on track.

We'd love to see a Rick Perry vs. Jerry Brown death match on the next UFC card

It seems that Dallas Fed chief Richard Fisher has a different take on things and uses Texas as a shining example:

On Wednesday, Richard Fisher, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, gave a speech in which he separated “fact from fiction” about the record of job creation in Texas.

We can help but wonder whose fiction he was talking about?

Texas job gains are a result of pro-growth policies on taxes, spending and regulations: “…people and businesses have been picking up stakes and moving to Texas in significant numbers over a prolonged period… And yet Texas, like all states, is subject to the same monetary policy as all the rest… From this, I draw the conclusion that private sector capital and jobs will go to where taxes and spending and regulatory policy are most conducive to growth.”

Want further proof this guy is right? Look at the financial mess the U.S. is in and look at what’s going on in California, a state losing businesses daily to Texas and other states with better business climates.

Don’t believe us? Let’s send Rick Perry to California and send Jerry Brown to Texas and see what happens. We’d wager millions of unemployed workers in California would soon be working again and Texas would be bankrupt.

Did you actually read the data I submitted above? Don’t answer that, I know you didn’t, or you would have used about half the drivel above… Read it and then report back.

BTW, I don’t listen to the media about much of anything…though I do watch Fox News and Business….have issue with that? Bet you do…. I’m smart enough, and know how to do my own research…..not much to be found that seems real, except fr what I posted…..

Also, read something you posted about him changing parties. So what? So did I, albeit a long time ago. Get over yourself. There is no panacea, which you seem to want, so I question your statement above about being a Conservative…real Conservatives know there is no such thing……

I swear, Olivia thinks I am a rabid right wing looney, now this guy thinks I must be a liberal! I am speaking from experience living under Perry’s “leadership.” Vote for him. But again, don’t come crying to me when you find out he is a bag oif hot air at best.

Just asking, with your vast experience, to actually read what I’ve posted, and dispel any of it….frankly, I’m all ears. I have family in Texas, and they’ve not mentioned his liberal views or your feelings from most Texans. Love to hear your thoughts after you’ve read the post…..see my link above, and flail away!

I think Perry has to be far better than the current usurper in our white house. I’d vote for an empty orange juice can which would also be far more qualified than onumbnutz on every level. What I know is, whoever ends up with the nomination gets my vote.

I did read your blog. I agreed with the comments about Gardisil (the main problem was his seeming involvement with the manufacturer and the requirement of a relatively untested vaccine.)
The TTC was a money making operation for his cronies (like Zachry-well known in Texas for shoddy workmanship.) He was also going to take lina right out of the middle of rancher and farmer owned property, thus negatively affecting their income, ability to care for animals and crops. He tailors his comments to whatever audience he is addressing, thus giving conflicting opinions at different speeches and appearances. I don’t think he has liberal views. I sont think he has conservative views. I think he says whatever works at the time. And I have said before that if it comes doen ot O and Perry, I am screwed as to who to vote for. I don’t think EITHER of them is in any way worthy of the office. Keep in mind, the right can spin as well as the left.

IF Texass is in such great shape financially, why did they have such a problem passing a budget? Why did school funding (nearly the lowest in the US) get cut AGAIN? Why is our unemployment climbing? Perry is a lying SOB. The great jobs he has brought to Texas, for the most part, have been service jobs (hotels, restaurants, etc) and call centers. A recent study showed that nearly a third of children in the state are going hungry. In San Antonio, it is even higher. Everything about Perry is smoke, mirrors and spin. DO NOT BE FOOLED!

s_r: “DO NOT BE FOOLED!”

The last thing we need is a Right-wing BHO to take over in ’12. If you can cite articles and legislation that this guy is fumbling around in TX, it’ll be easier to push in another direction. Is he just the “suit” taking credit for the good and deflecting the bad, or is it a case of “your taste” for some of the deals he’s made in compromise? Who’s pusing the bad ideas, him or the state legislators?

In Texas the Governor has little real power. Most of the hard work is done by the Lt. Governor and the Congress. Perry has lied about all kinds of things. He swore on a Bible when he ran again for office in 2008 that he would never, absolutely for any reason run for President. He kept that lie alive and well until about May of this year. On one hand, he has decried same sex marriage, then recently (while he was campaigning in the Northeast) he stated he was fine with the New York law allowing gay marriage, that he was fine with them. Now he is back to telling people he wants to CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION to define marriage, as well as many other items in that document.He has paid huge amounts of taxpayer money to “encourage” businesses to move toTexas and create jobs (read he has bribed them). Most of these companies owuld likely have come here already-no state income tax, large labor pool and no union requirements to work. 44% of the business to whom he paid to create hundreds of jobs have not, in fact, created the jobs they promised. Many of the jobs they DID create were minimum wage jobs. He gets contracts to his cronies at the taxpayer expense. Somebody set the governors mansion on fire, and he was forced to move during the reconstruction. His rental costs $10,000 a month, and he has used additonal campaign money to pay for parties, cable and ” other incidentals.” Oh, and the reconstruction of the Governor’s mansion is taking FOREVER. Guess he doesn’ wantto move unless its to Washington. He started as a Demorcrat when the Democrats ran the stae. When the Republicans started making inroads, he suddenly switched parties. Perry is out for himself and his buddies. Period.

What is your source that Perry is a lying SOB? Prove it.

He’s been telling us for 3 1/2 years he would never, under any circumstance, absolutely never run for President-yet here we are. Just a start.

You, like most, because of the media, have no idea what you are talking about. Having trouble passing a budget, seen the lunacy in DC lately? Has nothing to do with Perry in Texas, like it has nothing to do with Republicans in DC.

Might want to eat some brainfood this morning….and perhaps every morning would be good.

Take a look at the below….have some fun researching some truths about Perry, instead of being spoonfed stupitity and lies from the media.

Yes, its a blog, but one long article, chock full of facts, and supporting data and links. Report back your findings and stop being a freaking lemming! It really isn’t becoming…..remember, the liberals depend on your ignorance!

I live in Texas. I am a conservative. I understand Pretty Ricky at least as well as the crazies who think he is the next golden boy president from Texas. I am NOT a lemming. For Instance, with an $11 BILLION budget shortfall, we are paying $10,000 a month for Ricky;s rental in the hills. And that is just rent and utilities. Food, repairs (including a $1000 emergency repair to his filtered ice machine) flowers, and other “incidentals” are added to that. And no one can really id where the money goes, sinec he is sloppy with bookkeeping (snork). He created a budget shortfall And was so warned by the then Texas COmptroller that his plan was not viable before it went into effect., and he did it anyway. And here we are, 11 billion short to balance the budget (a requirement under Texas law.) He has cut spending on education, with Texas already about 48th of the 50 states in education. We have the highest dropout rate, the fewest high school graduates of ANY OTHER STATE. So lets cut education a little more, cause that makes sense, right? Pretty Ricky is a moron (check out HIS college transcript if you think George Bush’s C average looks bad.) He flip flops and tailors his statements to agree with the current audience. Maybe YOU are a lemming following everything the press says about Ricky, but some of us know better. Hell, the only reason he is still in office is that so many people run against him, it splits the vote. I belive he was elected last with 1/3 of the vote. Hardly a mandate.

while your checking grades, look up obamas for me, .. I cant seem to find them.

sa_rose

Well the GREATEST PRESIDENT WHO EVER LIVED felt the need to hide all of his personal records, so no one can diss HIS grades. The MOST TRANSPARENT PRESIDENT OF ALL TIME expects us to just accept that he was a brilliant student, because he says so. Ever noticed that NO ONE can verify his attendance in class at any of the College level courses he took? Belive me, I am not a liberal hack. I have just lived under Rick Perry’s excuse for leadership for too long. He is not who he presents himself to be. When Obama first came out as a candidate, I told people he was a mess, that something very wrong was going on. No one believed me. I am telling you the same about Rick Perry. Vote for him if you wish, but don’t come crying when you see who he REALLY is.

Nothing at all brilliant about onumbnutz…..nothing.

And, to be clear, if he were brilliant, he sure as hell wouldn’t be a liberal…..totally diametrically opposed to the other…..

Wow, surprising….did anyone actually take a look at the link above? I would think many here would….took me three days to get through it all…because, after all, I do work for a living….

Kind of disappointing, actually……

For some reason Texas seems to thrive when the rest of the country is going to shit.

Illegals come here BECAUSE of the tax payer funded freebies. There are systems in place to become citizens but they don’t want that. They come to pilfer the stupid Americans.

We don’t have enough resources for our citizens, the liberals make it worse by giving those resources to people who don’t deserve them in trade for votes.

Think about how much stronger Texas would be if we did not have to spend tax money for illegals health and school services.

If the illegals were eliminated, CALIFORNIA would be in good shape!

Well, CA would be in decent shape. The libs still live here you know and as long as they keep voting for people like Pelosi and Brown we will never be in GOOD shape. Look what they just did? They just gave ALL illegals the right to all government college grants, carte blanche!! UGH!

RockingHorseGuy
Member

Well, what I was talking about is the fact that the money spent on free goodies for illegals, jail time, police time, etc., is just about equal to the deficit. Without illegals, we would actually do better than breaking even. Taxpaying Americans would do the jobs that the illegals do, and the tax base would become much larger.

I have no doubt that as historians and psychologists look back on what is called Liberalism and the progressive movement that they will proclaim that it is truly a mental disease. no doubt whatsoever.

C_Strasburger

Why would you suggest that course of action? History tells us that liberals have little use for the truth….it just doesn’t support their idiotic and mindless agenda….mindless and idiotic being historically factual….

Perry/Rubio (or Bachmann) 2012! Let the truth begin anew!

You would see a lot of complaints, protests and then when the economy in Commiefornia turned around a lot of liberal to conservative conversion stories!

I dunno about that….. some of the liberal loons that live here in CA are died in the wool nutjobs and wouldn’t even admit that CA had recovered. They are married to their positions, and are not interested in truth!

Many are just dating the dyed in the wool nut jobs or family members of such. Believe me, I know first hand there are many more conservatives or conservative wannabes in cali than people realize.
