How can this be true? Texas made up 43% of total gain in jobs in the country?

I lost my nerness over the years and I can barely figure out a simple math equation. But it just doesn't seem right what this right wing rag says about Rick Perry and jobs. Here is the snap shot and the link is at the bottom. Please someone tell me what is going on?

Rick Perry and the state of Texas has had a major impact on Obama’s net gains in job growth to the tune of 43% according to JP Updates, and the funny thing is Texas only accounts for less than 10% of the total US population:

From the start of February 2009 (Obama’s first full month in office) through the end of May 2013 (the last month there is available Federal data for jobs per state) the United States had a net gain of 2,076,000 jobs. In the same time, Texas had a net gain of 882,582 jobs. In other words, 43% of the net job gains since Obama’s first full month in office are from Texas. This is a major success for Perry considering that his State has less than 7% of the overall U.S. population.

Those jobs numbers are from the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics so there is no room for the Left to argue that the Texas numbers are no good. And the breakdown is as follows:

11,082,548 were employed in Texas at the start of February 2009. The number rose to 11,965,130 at the end of May 2013; a net gain of 882,582 jobs. Nationwide, 133,631,000 (133.63 million) were employed at the start of February 2009, and the number rose to 135.7 million at the end of May; a growth of 2.076 million jobs.

I cannot think of any empirical way the percentage of Muslims that are terrorists can be quantified

Someone posted a stupid video, the 4th anti-Muslim post since yesterday.

Anyway, the woman speaking as if she is some authority says there are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world and 25% of them are terrorists. That is 300 Million terrorists in the Muslim faith.

I think it is bullshit but before I say anything can anyone confirm or debunk what I have said.

Here is the page where it originated. It is from a video.


An update about a situation that I wrote about a couple months back


In essence it was about how everyone was fighting as how I felt rejected by my mother and my brother and how I couldn't stop hating on my step father. Or that is how I see it now.

I took everyone's advice and actually sat down with my step father and found out that he was hurting also. He apologized to me and I apologized to him.

My brother and I were just arguing about the situation and he was constantly taking our step father's side and I felt rejected by him because I thought he didn't recognize my pain. So I just sent him an email that said, "I don't want to fight anymore. Love, Maraya" And he, (a Christian minister) wrote back, "To this I say happily, AMEN" We've been closer since then then since we were in high school.

And my Mom just called me and I was thrilled about that. We are back to the great relationship we had for several years.

The power of forgiveness. The power of helpful people. The power of love.

Thank you all so much my friends.

FireFox is going cray on me! It is like

Firefox is filled with malware and viruses and Google Chrome, which I am now using is OK?

The last SpyHunter scan I did found a few hundred malware but when I clicked to fix it it only removed some and left 151. I guess I should run it again.

Please Help!

Well look what the Mayo Clinic just told me about abortion. Please spread this very well concealed

information around! Consider that most abortions happen in the 1st to 6th week.


Weeks 1 and 2 - You are NOT even pregnant.

"Weeks 1 and 2: Getting ready

It might seem strange, but you're not actually pregnant the first week or two of the time allotted to your pregnancy. Yes, you read that correctly!

Conception typically occurs about two weeks after your last period begins. To calculate your due date, your health care provider will count ahead 40 weeks from the start of your last period. This means your period is counted as part of your pregnancy — even though you weren't pregnant at the time."


Week 3: Fertilization

Illustration of fertilization and implantation Fertilization and implantation
The sperm and egg unite in one of your fallopian tubes to form a one-celled entity called a zygote. If more than one egg is released and fertilized, you might have multiple zygotes.

The zygote typically has 46 chromosomes — 23 from you and 23 from the father. These chromosomes help determine your baby's sex, traits such as eye and hair color, and, to some extent, personality and intelligence.

Soon after fertilization, the zygote travels down the fallopian tube toward the uterus. At the same time, it will begin dividing to form a cluster of cells resembling a tiny raspberry — a morula.


Week 4: Implantation

By the time it reaches the uterus, the rapidly dividing ball of cells — now known as a blastocyst — has separated into two sections.

The inner group of cells will become the embryo. The outer group will become the cells that nourish and protect it. On contact, the blastocyst will burrow into the uterine wall for nourishment. This process is called implantation.

The placenta, which will nourish your baby throughout the pregnancy, also begins to form.


Week 5: The embryonic period begins - IT IS NOT EVEN AN EMBRYO UNTIL THE 5TH WEEK!

The fifth week of pregnancy, or the third week after conception, marks the beginning of the embryonic period. This is when the baby's brain, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form. (More at the link)


Week 6: The neural tube closes -

Growth is rapid this week. Just four weeks after conception, the neural tube along your baby's back is closing and your baby's heart is pumping blood

Why wasn't I ever told this and why is not common knowledge? The morning after pill is just like taking the birth control pill. You are not even pregnant!
