Yes it is always a great improvement when fewer people are working than when a POTUS came into office and the one factor that keeps the Stock market propped up is printing of money that is causing us all to pay outrageous prices at the pump and store. If this is your idea of Utopia please keep it away from the rest of us.

Let me see if I understand this correctly: a leftist phag waits till people log off to go enjoy the beautiful spring day (having actual lives), and then said phag nances around his virtual garden crowing how he "got peole to leave". A fellow fudgepacker then enters stage left, and pounds away at his buddies round brown until there's nothing left but a sweaty pile of leftist goop.
Wow nutculur, you've really set the bar high. I might just have to go back to bed for another rund of zzzzzzs to top that "victory"...

See what I think about %99.9 of my life? No wonder I spend my life on this shythole.

"The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books—-a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects."

All that after two years of a democrat controlled house and senate AND several warnings from Bush to congress that what they were doing with forcing banks to give loans to those who they knew couldn't pay them back was going to cause a total housing collapse. But the democrat controlled congress wouldn't listen because they knew better and didn't want to hurt anyones feelings by saying "no" to someone that works at McDonalds, yet wants to buy a $750K home in SF. So now here we are..... And you continue to insist on blaming Bush. But then again, I shouldn't be surprised. You are, after all, a liberal, and if there is anything the Blamer in chief has taught us all over these last 4+ years, it's that no matter what the facts, it's always someone elses (the republicans) fault.
And so one of the things that I'm going to talk about a little bit today is how to create a sustained commitment by the private sector that will have a powerful impact. First of all, we want to make sure that we help work to expand capital available to buyers, and as I mentioned, overcome the barriers that I've delineated, as well as provide the education component. In other words, this is not just a federal responsibility.

That's why I've challenged the industry leaders all across the country to get after it for this goal, to stay focused, to make sure that we achieve a more secure America, by achieving the goal of 5.5 million new minority home owners. I call it America's home ownership challenge.

And let me talk about some of the progress which we have made to date, as an example for others to follow. First of all, government sponsored corporations that help create our mortgage system -- I introduced two of the leaders here today -- they call those people Fannie May and Freddie Mac, as well as the federal home loan banks, will increase their commitment to minority markets by more than $440 billion.(Applause.) I want to thank Leland and Franklin for that commitment. It's a commitment that conforms to their charters, as well, and also conforms to their hearts.

This means they will purchase more loans made by banks after Americans, Hispanics and other minorities, which will encourage homeownership. Freddie Mac will launch 25 initiatives to eliminate homeownership barriers. Under one of these, consumers with poor credit will be able to get a mortgage with an interest rate that automatically goes down after a period of consistent payments.

U.S. Corpse-Economy Still Losing Jobs
Written by Jeff Nielson Wednesday, 06 March 2013 13:40
Ignore the fantasy-numbers. Ignore the inane hype which accompanies them. There is only one Truth with respect to the U.S. labour market and employment. It is contained in the chart below, produced by the Federal Reserve itself.
The picture is unequivocal. During the four years which the U.S. government has dubbed “an economic recovery”, the U.S. economy has been losing jobs at the fastest rate in recorded history – for every year of this so-called recovery.
http://www.bullionbullscanada.com/us-commenta...
We are adding jobs despite the cuts in government spending. We may not be adding enough, fast enough but we are adding jobs.

I ditched NUK because he was using JH platitudes and was boring the daylights out of me. If Nuk thinks running people away due to his overwhelming stupidity is something to brag about he has some major gaps in common sense.

Yes in this series of exchanges, the Obama voter thinks
1) that calling someone liar is intellectually equivalent of actually putting up a defense or supported viewpoint
2) the Obama voter has no clue about current events and fails to understand the position of his own idol-Obama
3)the Obama voter is frequently confused about what is the topic
4)the Obama voter displayed an EQ of a six year old

You can continue to embarrass yourself with your childish responses or actually use BING and discover that there are fewer people in the work force. Everyone knows this but you.

You have run from the truth way too long and are in a poor position for anyone to take you seriously as a truth police.

Thus the George W Bush inspired housing bubble of 2003-2007. And then the sht hit the fan!

But wait there's more__many of the financial institutions that quickly went sideways were not victims of home loans but of a stock market in free fall.
