    Another good indicator of the economy is truck tonnage and it rose 5.7 Percent in October.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    If the unemployment rate goes back up over 9%, then i will provide an objective take on why i believe it has increased. Until that time, it would be beneficial not to make predictions that you are in no position to make.

    It will be the GOPs fault for not passing the dems pay roll tax cut. That is what they will blame it on next month.

    "obejective take" = "It's the GOP's fault!"

    Tax cuts do not create jobs when private debt levels exceed 100% of income.

    that is correct: giving the wealthy more money through tax-cuts does not cause them to spend more money, thereby creating jobs.

    Your right, the bush tax cuts sure didn't.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
