Germany did not do that. Germany sent all their criminals and crazy people into the Infantry. But a few like Hitler survived.
Likely a complete fiction, but I'd be willing to look at the proof of yur claim.

Sounds about right.

Never an end to the blame game by you democrats. Actually they are a failure of our leaders to secure our border. We could easily stop the human trafficking if our president believed it was important. He is the leader of the country and has great influence over what priorities the country focuses on. This is just another issue he is using to blame the republican house for the problem. The senate has never been the problem, until of course it is no longer controlled by the do nothing democrats.
sounds right to me. The talking chimps refusal to allow the XL pipeline is absolute proof the dems care not one wit about jobs, except their own

And Obama has set a new all time record for the number of the most UNANIMOUS SCOTUS negative decisions of 13 Nine to Zero rulings. Even FDR did that mean and FDR was in the White House over 12 years and Obama did it under SIX years.
Wasn't Obama some sort of Constitutional scholar?

Well, just about everyone has predicted that just as soon as QE1, QE2 and QE3 end, the interest rates will spike and and the stock market will take a nose dive!!!!

Fed's Taper Will Have Negligible Impact On Economy
I recently wrote “Economic Forecast After The Federal Reserve Starts To Taper.” Now that the Fed has decided to taper, I am NOT changing my economic forecast.

Fed Stimulus TaperKey points:

QE3 has had little effect on the economy, though there may be some lagged impact in 2014.

Tapering is not tightening; in metaphorical terms, the Fed is not hitting the brakes, just easing up a small amount on the gas pedal. In the chart, the red area is a projection assuming that the Fed continues its new level of purchases through the end of 2014. In reality, another taper is more likely than not, but I show the path of the new purchases to offer a picture of the magnitude of the change.

The Fed is tapering because the economy is showing moderate strength. The Fed’s action will not sink the economy.

As for financial markets, maybe markets had been fearing a more pronounced taper and are relieved that this is so minor.

TaperAs I wrote before, a look at the data shows how little impact quantitative easing has had on the economy. In the graph at right, quantitative easing is shown by Federal Reserve Credit. I’ve made the line thicker where the three rounds of quantitative easing occurred. In red I show the growth rate of inflation-adjusted gross domestic product. GDP growth is bumpy, not smooth, but I think I can see some quantitative easing.

A few quarters after the first round of quantitative easing, QE1, GDP growth surged. That’s consistent with Milton Friedman’s conclusion that the time lags of monetary policy are long. However, it’s pretty common for GDP to surge in the first few quarters after a recession, so maybe it would have happened without quantitative easing.

QE2 began in late 2010 and probably triggered the stronger growth a year later—long time lags, remember. So far we have seen little impact from QE3, but the time lags are long, so perhaps we are in for stronger growth in 2014 because of the stimulus. But perhaps not. Both QE1 and QE2 pushed up money supply growth dramatically. QE1 doubled the M2 growth rate, and QE2 had an even great impact. Since QE3 started, though, money supply growth rates have gradually declined. This indicates that the stronger bank reserves have simply been held by banks, not lent out to businesses or consumers.

It’s also clear that quantitative easing is not the great driving force of the economy. In the interludes, the economy did not plummet. The size of these reserve credit increases is huge by historic standards. It’s amazing that they did not send the economy into the stratosphere.

If the Fed were to suddenly suspend QE3, I doubt that the real side of the economy—spending, production and employment—would show much impact.

Huh? June's LPR for June was 62.8%. Are you looking at something else? The LPR was 65.7% in Jan. 2009 and now it is just 62.8% which is a drop of .....2.9%. What is 2.9% of 313 MILLION? Ah, NINE million!!!!
And, the AVERAGE family's income, corrected for inflation, is down 15% from Jan. 2009 also. Now, if you can not rebut without facts and links, shut the F-up!

I did blow some smoke up Jackeau's but butt he is to stupid to know it. The Labor force is not 100% of the American population but only those between 16 and70 years old. So instead of NINE Milion fewer ADULT being unemployed it is about SEVEN MILLION.
But I did that on purpose just to see if Jackeau could catch it but he was just to plain .....STUPID
Oh, now that full time unemployed means only 30 hours of work per week, that drops the U-3 and U-6 unemployment rates. So the actual unemployment rate is about 17% and Jackeau thinks that is just dandy!

The average height for men in the following countries.
U.K. 5' 9.6"
Germany 5' 10"
Belgium 5' 9.5"
Netherlands 6' 0.6"
France 5' 8"
Italy (Northern) 5' 9.7'
Italy (Southern) 5' 8.0"
Note, the only country cut in half for this survey was Italy as their height difference is so pronounced.
The reason why French are shorter is that during WWI most of the tall guys were put in the infantry and were killed at far higher rates. Why Charles de Gaulle was wounded three times before he was captured.
In Italy most of the tall guys in Southern Italy were put in the Infantry during WWI while in the Northern part only poor tall guys were put in the infantry with the same higher causality rates.
