    Yes differing views are fine. In a perfect world our leaders listen to us, but unfortunately i think most politicians are deaf to their constituents.

    I was just curious, because I read somewhere that approximately 300,000 boomers these days are retiring per month. If that is included, then that number is still too high, but 50,000 is not nearly as scary as 350,000.

    I even tried some research but still couldn't find out if retirees are included in that number...

    Hmmmm...

    Simply not true.

    Over the last 5 months (jul-nov), there were 789,000 jobs added in total.


    Bureau of Labor Statistics Data: Total nonfarm

    During that same period, there were 34,000 government jobs added.

    In reality, 4% of the jobs added over the last 5 months were government jobs.

    Looks like I scrounged up the source of that bit of disinformation, not surprising really.

    Hmmm. Rush Limbaugh versus the facts. Rush always loses that one. What a useless twerp!

    Sadly, millions of Junior Twerpsters take it all quite seriously.

    Only the blind partisan can see t that way. It's a stupid position to believe people will stop wanting to work.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Every day, there's 50,000 seniors between the ages of 62 and 66 celebrating a birthday. That 1.5 million per month. About half of whom are employeed. Suffice it to say, a big chunk of the half million who left the work force last month were retiring baby boomers.
