The Obama recovery
Labor Force Participation Rate

The Reagan Recovery
Labor Force Participation Rate

Civilian labor force:
All persons in the civilian noninstitutional population classified as either employed or unemployed.

What are the basic concepts of employment and unemployment?:
The basic concepts involved in identifying the employed and unemployed are quite simple:
    People with jobs are employed.
    People who are jobless, looking for jobs, and available for work are unemployed.
    People who are neither employed nor unemployed are not in the labor force....

Who is counted as unemployed?:
Persons are classified as unemployed if they do not have a job, have actively looked for work in the prior 4 weeks, and are currently available for work. Actively looking for work may consist of any of the following activities:
    Contacting:
       An employer directly or having a job interview
       A public or private employment agency
       Friends or relatives
       A school or university employment center
    Sending out resumes or filling out applications
    Placing or answering advertisements
    Checking union or professional registers...

Who is counted as employed?:
Not all of the wide range of job situations in the American economy fit neatly into a given category. For example, people are considered employed if they did any work at all for pay or profit during the survey week. This includes all part-time and temporary work, as well as regular full-time, year-round employment. Persons also are counted as employed if they have a job at which they did not work during the survey week, whether they were paid or not, because they were:
    On vacation
    Ill
    Experiencing child-care problems
    Taking care of some other family or personal obligation
    On maternity or paternity leave
    Involved in an industrial dispute
    Prevented from working by bad weather...

Sad, but the first two "recovery" graphs show there is less voter participation in September 2012 than there was in 1981, about 63 million people.

The two graphs look a bit like mirror images.

That is why the revalation of "7.8 % unemployment" is a crock. At least it needs an asterisk and an explanation that people who give up looking are still unemployed.

WHen the numbers are good, claim a conspiracy. When the numbers are not good, claim they are accurate and blame them on the President. Talk about a crock, PDQ.

Here's the bottom line: the economy is recovering steadily in spite of the best efforts of the right to prevent that from happening. These guys are so hard over trying to create failure for Mister Obama, they don't care who they starve or torture to get there. This, IMHO, amounts to psychopathic behavior thinly disguised as politics.

More interesting news...

THE CHONGO RECOVERY

After a severe bender on Friday night and into Saturday afternoon, Chongo was expected to be too drunk or hungover to make his Keynote Address to the National Association of Artistic and Active Apes and Monkeys (NAAAAM) in Schenectady, New York on Sunday afternoon. Confounding both his critics and the pundits, Chongo showed up right on time and delivered a barnstorming speech that made Mitt Romney look like a shrinking violet and Barack Obama look like just a skinny guy in a suit. He promised to deliver "80 million new jobs by June" if elected. And how was this to be done? "We're gonna move some of the Rocky Mountains to the Midwest," promised Chongo. "It ain't fair that people there don't get to view good scenery, and my administration is gonna change that for all time by employin' 80 million workers for the next ten years and movin' 52 of the largest mountains into places like Kansas and Ohio." Chongo went on to flesh out other planks in his ever-expanding platform and finished to a tumultuous outburst of applause, hooting, and barking from a very pleased audience. No poop was thrown, despite dire predictions from the most vociferous critics of the Chongo campaign.

Looks like Chongo has bounced back better than ever. This proves that excessive drinking and grandiose and outlandish campaign promises don't necessarily get in the way of getting elected, something people should have already known on the basis of some of the previous occupants of the Oval Office, but they just needed to be reminded again. ;-D

During the O'Reilly-Stewart Rumble, Billy kept showing his sign "Bush is gone". He took with him 8,000,000 jobs, every penny my meager investment accounts had earned, every major auto manufacturer was on the verge of bankruptcy, the housing industry was in shambles, and banking institutions were crumbling while the CEOs and possibly a few select execs were stashing their loot in the Grand Caymans or wherever to keep it out of sight of the IRS. But he did leave us two bloody, expensive wars, with at least one whose primary purpose was to restore BPs Iraq oil field and provide revenue for favored government contractors. An the other to repay Osama bin Ladin for an attack against America. In a little less than four years Obama has overseen steady job growth, my investment accounts are at least restored and showing a little growth, the automobile industry is flourishing and the unbelievable has happened. A large part of the government loans have been repaid. Banking institutions are working in spite of the CEOs. The housing industry is improving. People who had been devastated by the lack of or cost of health care have a fighting chance. The price tag of settling the scored with bin Ladin has not been revealed to my knowledge but I suspect it was less than Bush invested in Afghanistan, and the loss of life was certainly less. And it was done in spite of the opposition of Republicans in Congress who are committed, as has already been pointed out, to the misery of the American citizenry. I cannot speak for anyone else. But I am better off today than I was four years ago. And it seems like the people around me are as well. And for three years I have had hope for better things to come.

They follow a political-financial religion that they are loath to abandon, Bobert. Abandoning it would be to abandon their entire philosophy of life thus far. This is something most people won't do, no matter what, because to do it would be to admit that they've been............WRONG all along!

And, boy, are they ever wrong. They couldn't be much wronger. Now, consider the Nazis. Were they willing to admit they were wrong? Certainly not! Hitler and most of his inner circle of loyal supporters such as Josef and Magda Goebbels went to their deaths absolutely convinced that they'd been right, dead right, and that if the world had only seen it their way it would have been saved.

That's the kind of mentality you see driving the far Right "trickle-down" philosophy of supposedly enriching a country by giving its richest elite more big tax breaks and by continuing to de-regulate the banks and lending institutions. It's absolutely insane. It's already been proven utterly wrong by the damage it's done in the recent past. But they will not abandon it, because it is the philosophical and psychological basis of their very identity, their egos depend upon believing in it....and it benefits them directly, because they themselves mostly ARE among the rich elite.

And all they have to do is tune in every day to Fox TV...or some other outlet that preaches their gospel...and they'll never have to hear anything that deviates from their own opinion.

In this respect, they are much like other people, of course...because most other people do the same thing. They also have a lifelong philosophy that they WILL NOT change, no matter what, and they tune in regularly to outlets that agree with it! ;-)

However, there is that one crucial difference which is...the philosophy Romney is backing happens to be an insane one. Inflexible allegiance to an insane philosophy is a far worse problem than inflexible allegiance to a relatively sane one...

During the Reagan Administration, I noticed the rise of the "homeless" in America.
His policies were "lip service" and his anti-union and economic policies wrecked our country. Nancy Reagan's "just say no" was a ridiculous solution to an addicted society. She, herself, was addicted to prescription drugs.

I call it "mourning in America".

Obama's recovery may be slow but it's a lot better than Bush's whose recovery consisted of job losses and the gutting of the "surplus" under Clinton.

The problem is Obama is spending too much capital on these wars.

or there will eventually be a popular revolution that will bring it down.

Unlike Syria (and Libya), though, this will not require the infiltration of thousands of foreign-supplied and foreign-trained fighters, jihadists, foreign agents, and foreign money and weapons to accomplish it. It'll be a genuinely homegrown revolution.

Where's yo dollah?



After Obama voted against the bill which passed anyway and provided 10 times the money that it provided for NYC, he charges the administration with racism for not providing money to rebuild New Orleans.


"This really steams me up," Obama begins, "When you get federal money, you've got to give a 10 percent match, the local government got to come up with 10 percent. Every ten dollars the federal government comes up with, the local government has to give a dollar.

"Now here's the thing, when 9/11 happened in New York City, they waved the Stafford Act. Said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect New York City to rebuild on its own. Forget that dollar you've got to put in, here's ten dollars - and that was the right thing to do.

"When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said, 'Look at this devastation, we don't expect you to come up with your own money. Here, here's the money to rebuild. We're not going to wait for you to scratch it together, because you're part of the American family.

What's happenin down in New Orleans? Where's yo dollah? Where's your Stafford Act money? Makes no sense. Tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. Tells me that somehow, the people down in New Orleans - they don't care about as much."

IBD/TIPP 2012 Presidential Election

Daily Tracking Poll

Day 3: Oct. 11, 2012

Romney: +1.2

Obama 45.7% | Romney 46.9%

Obama made up some lost ground against Romney, with the GOP challenger's lead shrinking to 1 point from 5 points a day earlier.

Romney's margin over Obama among independents, a key voting bloc, shrank from 20% on Day 2 to 15% on Day 3.

Romney's significant 36-point lead with white males dropped to 28 points — still substantial.

Meanwhile, Romney had shown a surprising 3-point lead in the West for two straight days. That reversed itself, however, in the latest poll, with Obama leading in the West by 46%-42%.

A major polling group stopped polling in Virginia, North Carolina and Florida a couple of days ago.

Why? They say it's over there. Romney will win all three.

Real numbers are about +7 Romney in Florida and Virginia. NC will propbbly be in double digits for Romney when it gets to NOV 6.

I said weeks ago that no state south of DC will go Obama.

Now, even Pennsylvania is a "tossup" and New Hampshire is +1 Romney!

Well, for the first time in a long time, my investments are making money - about 14% this year, instead of one or two percent.
