Fulk do your homework a little better the unemployment rate in the 5th district is higher now than when Perriello took office even after he voted for the jobless stimulus package.This is exactly why the DemoRATS will fail they don't know how to fix any problem they just throw billions of dollars at any problem without any long term plans.

The unemployment rate in the Martinsville metro area is lower than it was one year ago. The facts are stubborn things huh?

What is the Republican Party plan to put Americans back to work? Another war? Building fences in Arizona? Maybe just let the jobless eat cake!

Poor Martinsville! They have been hammered since the Republicans outsourced their jobs many years ago.
Now the Republicans are trying to block any help for the area.

Stanley Furniture to eliminate 530 jobs by year’s end

The Roanoke Times
Southside Virginia sustained another hard economic blow today with news that Stanley Furniture Co. will be eliminating more than 500 jobs and moving some manufacturing operations overseas.

The Henry County-based company will send the majority of the manufacturing of its adult product line to overseas vendors. Its Young America nursery and youth product line will continue to be produced in Robbinsville, N.C., but some components will be produced overseas, too.

As a result, 530 jobs will be eliminated by the end of the year in the company’s Virginia locations. “We’ve put up a fight as long as we could; maybe longer,” said company CEO Glenn Prillaman, who praised the skill, craftsmanship and dedication of employees. He said the Virginia operations remained profitable until late 2008, when the national recession took hold.

Wait! The recession began under George Bush? That isn't what Glen Beck and Rush Limpbaugh told us!

Like when you targeted Perriello by cutting the gas line at his brother's house, and slicing the wires to his outside security lights? Dirty fucking teabaggers!

Fulk are you going to stand behind Bubby's lies again this time or will you call him out for it ?

This must be how Democrats respond when you give them facts that they can't argue with they call you names.

Bubby said...

Sorry teabagboy, You'll just have to wait for the FBI investigation to conclude. Hopefully that shoe will drop about Labor Day, and all Virginian's will know what the teaparty is made of.

Nerve hit? Seems like the FBI investigating a purposefully cut gas line would indicate it was done, or are the FBI and VA State Police dirt bag liars too?

Anonymous said...

So Bubby you admit that you are a dirt bag bald face liar that just spreads lies and i have never been to any tea party but they are alot better people than you could ever hope to be.Take a good look everyone Bubby told a bald face lie and he knows it.Bubby please don't forget to HELP Perriello like you did the other Democrats last Fall and like you HELPED Kai.

Bubby said...

Perriello raised $660,000 second quarter, $1.7 M in hand. You teabaggers should get a job and step up to help fellow teabagger Jeff Clark. Who knows he may need the money for his defense fund.

And then proceeds to call other people names throughout several posts.

Anon, you are the poster child for cowardice, and for hypocrisy. Sadly these are two main pre-requisites for being a tea party minion.
