    I guess President Obama could have made the numbers look a lot better if he had did like President Reagan did when people serving in the military were reclassified from ''not in the labor force'' to ''employed'' in order to reduce the unemployment rate.
    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

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No, I mean the amount of money that people have saved in banks.

    how anyone could try to spin 10.2---with a 17.5 if you include those underemployed and others who've given up---as anything other than devastating is beyond me
