    G'head, Con, do your thing ... this is where you search for the dark gray cloud behind the silver lining.

    Commodities Record Longest Rally in 10 Months After Gains in U.S. Economy

    Commodities rose, capping the longest rally in 10 months, on signs of gains in the U.S. economy. Industrial metals and crude oil led the rally.


    ... good news for America is bad news for Conservatives
    The rising cost of commodities is not a good thing for consumers. It may reflect economic improvement, or it may reflect inflation, but having to pay more for everything is not particularly good news.

    It is good news when it's a reflection of an improving economy. To the consternation of America's rightwing, the economy is improving.

    High commodity prices may reflect a good economy, but they can also stall that economy. But I agree that the economy is improving. How long it will last and how much government action is responsible is debatable.

    U.S. jobless claims hold steady at 4-year low


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of Americans filing new claims for jobless benefits last week held at the lowest level since the early days of the 2007-2009 recession, signalling that the battered labour market is healing.

    Barack Obama appreciates your support and is laughing his ass off at how he has been able to fool people like you.

    Now you're under the impression that Barack Obama himself is responsible for the numbers gathered and reported on by the BLS???

    Not if the numbers are bad then those are Bush's fault but if they are good then they are Obama's results. Isn't that the way the script from the DNC says?

    No, if the numbers are bad they're Obama's fault, but if they're good they're fraudulent and it's still Obama's fault. Isn't that the Conservative script?

    Focus, Con ... focus. You said Obama is fooling me with those numbers. Since you think he manufactures those numbers, perhaps you can explain how he does that?

    Do you think Conservative is about to join in the new (old?) republican demon; the war on contraception?
    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
