Re: Disturbing AP story on FOIA

This sort of reputation could spread to the party and, if not remedied, could eventually give Republicans not just a majority in the house, but a 60+ count in the senate, as well.

Not smart. Not smart at all.

Re: 37% is more than enough to win

Israeli moderates lost. Anyone who had ever hoped there could be peace in the Middle East has lost.

The hate filled nutters who want perpetual war and chaos have won.

Congrats. Your efforts and bringing about rapture are closer

Re: Happy Baltimore statistic

The labor force participation rate has been dropping since its historical peak in 2000--which is 9 years before the Obama Admin took center seat.

It has accelerated dramatically in the 0bama years.

Last I heard, about 2/3 [more]

Re: Effects Of Seattle's $15 An Hour Minimum Wag

Mexicans come north to work for the higher pay, send much of it home to help support their families who are dirt poor. Poor pay depresses a region.

Why doesn't Mexico just enact a $15 minimum wage? Then they would not be so [more]

Re: Beck Leaving GOP

Good. The GOP does not represent Conservative ideas, principles and values any longer.

Right.

And the Dems are so extreme far left, it is scary.

Re: Happy Baltimore statistic

Uh.. no, come back you are in left field. The labor participation rate has been falling sharply under 0bama with a growing economy, to a 35 year low. The "low" official unemployment rate is driven by people leaving the work [more]

Re: Wingnuttery writ large

Why was it a mistake for U.S. troops to leave Iraq in December 2011, a withdrawal date Bush negotiated by the way, almost nine years after the initial invasion?

0bama wanted us out of there, for politics. Now, for politics, he needs [more]

Not sure why he is not getting more credit for this along with his other superlatives:

Re: Wingnuttery writ large

Obviously we should never have invaded in the first place.

Then why has 0bama started a war in Iraq? Is he just going to make a big mess just like his wars in Libya and Somalia?

Re: Happy Baltimore statistic

0bama's policies have forced so many out of the labor force, its sad.

All the way back to the 70s, when women went to work in droves because their husbands lost their blue collar jobs. Obama--what a magician!

Uh.. no, [more]

Re: Effects Of Seattle's $15 An Hour Minimum Wag

Statistically true for singular event. But when you can correlate multiple events and repeated outcomes, then you have a strong implication of causation.

So that would imply that your multiple content sparse posts on the topic imply [more]

Re: 37% is more than enough to win

Contrary to what 0bama believes, Israeli elections are not part of the American political process.

There, fixed that for you.

You are starting to sound like LFO, accusing others of lacking econ know-how without providing any substance to the discussion. If you have a problem with something I said, why not counter the point with some factual information of your own? You [more]

I guess I am not sure why folks like jerry and nigel post here on an economic topic, while apparently lacking a basic background in econ, and then request people educate them.

Re: Obama congratulates Putin...NOT Netanyahu

Maybe you're right. Maybe it has something to do with Bibi flying to the U.S. two weeks ago to insult Obama on the floor of Congress.

Re: Effects Of Seattle's $15 An Hour Minimum Wag

Minimum wage hurts the least skilled workers. As a result, it makes it more difficult for these workers to gain experience and skills in jobs of their choice. These workers, unlike college graduates are unable to negotiate their wage since they [more]
