    when the number of americans working decreases simultaneous with a .3% decline in the unemployment rate, it only means one thing---SIX POINT THREE MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK MORE THAN SIX MONTHS

    a horrendous all time hi

    and, yes, absolutely, THAT's the way msnbc, fox and pbs are covering this story

    does body language at the white house appear happy to you?

    over their 9.7? last week's 5.7?

    if not, why not?
    Employment is a lagging factor, that trends behind the GDP by many months, sometimes, up to a couple of years. The leading indicator, consumer purchases, began under Bush, and what we are seeing is the fallout from that.

    Now, I have a huge case against Obama, who I believe is running our economy into a ditch. Yes, we are going to see some short-term improvement under Obama, but at what cost? It is that cost that is going to cause this attempt at a recovery to be short-lived.

    However, having said that, I'll be damned if I am going to be enough of a douchebag to lie, and in the process, give a free pass to the one who was in office when this all began. Screw the political bullcrap. I love my country too damn much to get caught up in that, so I will just tell it like it is. The recession began under Republican leadership. Democratic leadership is exacerbating the problem. And the foundation on which the Great Recession was built was provided amply by both parties. So spin away to your heart's content. Nobody with more than half a brain is going to pay attention.

    Thanks for posting the numbers that way. It gives us a good visual of how it took time for the Cheney/Bush trainwreck to reach the top of the pile of **** and now it's starting down the otherside toward recovery.

    you're welcome, thank you

    obama's killing the democratic party

    see massachusetts, virginia and new jersey

    25 to 30 point swings

    and them's the REAL polls, the ones that count

    see the status of the sitting senators

    see the comprehensively out-of-reach agenda: the civilianizing of the terrorists, the closing of gitmo, the cap and trade, the international climate accords, the wall street reg reform, the reach out to china and russia, the personal diplomacy with iran, the health ca...

    all now empty dreams

    see the pivots and improvisations, the impromptu policies pushed then pulled back

    see the calls for shake up---rahm, holder, geithner, gibbs, not long for this world

    see the diminished presidency, shrinking by its own doing, it's dictates and mandates, its secrets and bribes, its attacks and paybacks, its arrogant inability to hear

    have a nice weekend

    This is poetry:
    Quote Originally Posted by Robert Frost

    That held the house as in an elbow-crook?
    I ask as one who knew the brook, its strength
    And impulse, having dipped a finger length
    And made it leap my knuckle, having tossed
    A flower to try its currents where they crossed.
    The meadow grass could be cemented down
    From growing under pavements of a town;
    The apple trees be sent to hearth-stone flame.
    Is water wood to serve a brook the same?
    How else dispose of an immortal force
    No longer needed? Staunch it at its source
    With cinder loads dumped down? The brook was thrown
    Deep in a sewer dungeon under stone
    In fetid darkness still to live and run --
    And all for nothing it had ever done
    Except forget to go in fear perhaps.
    No one would know except for ancient maps
    That such a brook ran water. But I wonder
    If from its being kept forever under,
    The thoughts may not have risen that so keep
    This new-built city from both work and sleep.

    This is poetry on drugs:

    i love frost, america's laureate

    thanks

    but obama's destruction of the democrat party is not poetry

    did you hear thursday that dead dodd had to declare his deliberations on financial reform at an IMPASSE?

    Financial reform talks halted - Victoria McGrane - POLITICO.com

    obama's #2 domestic item, reg reform supplanted cap and trade, which is kaput, on sept 1, if i remember correctly

    the evening axelrod announced the white house's "new" direction

    yes, the white house in sept moved reg reform up and cap and trade down, everything naturally taking backseat to health ca...

    dead dodd's banking committee, we learn this week, is experiencing the very bellyaches that so bothered baucus' finance cmte on health ca...

    it's too late to comeback

    any change obama tries to affect now is seen as phony

    he's been too extreme

    he's incompetent, to boot

    sorry

    do you do eliot?

    prufrock?

    do prufrock, friend

    shall i part my hair behind, do i dare to eat a peach...

    like i said, you're good

    How about the Dow close to falling below 10,000. Is that also a lagging factor?
