A Re-election Jobs Report?

Did the big March jobs report put President Obama back on the road to re-election? If so, he can thank the GOP, whose tax cuts saved him from himself. 

You could hear cheering all the way from the West Wing when the Labor Department showed a 216,000 gain in non-farm payrolls, the biggest number in quite some time. Plus, the unemployment rate continued its decline to 8.8 percent. Not so long ago it was nearly 10 percent.
Corporate payrolls have now increased by 478,000 for the first three months of the year.

Freecycling to Keep Usable Things out of the Waste Stream

Each one of us produces 1.2 tons of garbage per year, which is mainly bagged household trash. What's not included in that figure are all the perfectly usable goods that get thrown out each year, such as old furniture, clothes, books, obsolete technology and working appliances.

Many of these items are yard-sale fodder, or can be found parked by the curb with a "free" sign attached. If you can't find what you need through curb-shopping, or the classifieds in this paper, try websites like Craigslist and Freecycle.

Project Gunrunner: Obama's Stimulus-Funded Border Nightmare

Michelle Malkin
Buried in Barack Obama's failed trillion-dollar stimulus program was a $10 million bloody border racket that has now cost American lives. This goes far beyond the usual waste, fraud and abuse underwritten by progressive profligacy. It's bloodstained government malfeasance overseen by anti-gun ideologues -- and now anti-gun ideologue Attorney General Eric Holder will "investigate."

Ferraro Was Brave When No One Was Watching, Too

Connie Schultz
When we measure the impact of a hero, it helps to consider the difference between worship and admiration.  Worship promotes an illusion of perfection in one person and relies on a belief in our inherent inferiority to keep the myth alive.  Admiration, on the other hand, closes the distance. A person admits to overcoming everyday stumbles and major obstacles of ordinary life, and we're inspired to find our own courage.

Well, why not? we think. Let's give it a go.

Stages of Senior Care by Paul and Lori Hogan

While attending the Hackettstown Rotary Club meeting, DoctorsExpress’ Joe Castelano and I listened to the speaker, Lucy Hurley, Community Relations Director of Home Instead Senior Care. She described the levels of care that Home Instead Senior Care provided and referred to the book Stages of Senior Care by Paul and Lori Hogan. It was so intriguing that I had to read the book.

In detail, it gave a good understanding of the situation facing the ‘children’ of the aging parents, infirmity, financial, ambulatory and familiar surroundings. The book suggests many ways to approach the dilemma that they face.
