Did you know a Pew Research study showed 36% of Americans between the ages of 18 to 31 live with their parents? That's 1 in 3.
No, I won't provide a link. Look it up if you don't believe me.
That's a lot of young adults - and adults - living with their parents.
Wonder why that is LCN?
Corporate employers paying their employees ridiculously too-low wages , reducing full-employment career path employees for more part-time workers --all so top executive pay and benefits can go higher --is a good start to your question.

<quoted text> Because Eisenhower's 'Civil Rights Bill of 1957 ' only formalized what FDR and Harry Truman had already done to integrate the U S military services and finally accept the equality of Black-Americans to all other American citizens to the universal rights in the U S Constitution. However , the 1957 Bill was so altered and changed by the force of Southern racists and their conservative Congressional allies , like Strom Thurmond , that it was made nearly impossible for the Federal government to enforce it even if passed.

Using your source:

The bill passed the House 285 to 126.
Republicans: 167 for, 19 against.
Democrats: 118 for, 107 against.

(House Republicans carried the vote even though there were more House Democrats.)

The bill passed the Senate 72 to 18.
Republicans: 43 for, 0 against.
Democrats: 29 for, 18 against.

(Again, Senate Republicans carried the vote even though there were more Senate Democrats.)

President Eisenhower signed it on September 9, 1957 -(which, by the way, was the day I turned 6.)

So there goes your argument about Republicans.

Here's your leaders: the Weiner campaign official, who went on a tirade against a female intern while she was talking to a reporter (thinking it was off the record), attempting to shame and humiliate the intern by verbally attacking her as a “slutbag” among a long list of other offensive, sexist, and demeaning terms. This is how Democrats really talk about women when they think no one will find out.
It’s not just Weiner staffers. This week, a male senior official at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee actually compared sexual harassment and assault to “cable soap operas” in an interview with Yahoo News.
Where’s the outrage? Why aren’t leading Democrats like President O'bama, Vice President Biden, and former Secretary Clinton, standing up for these women? and Pelosi--where is that bitch Pelosi???

<quoted text>You forget that at the end of the George W Bush Administration the economy was losing jobs at a 300,000 per month pace. Clearly, a free-fall catastrophe.
Chris Matthews Says 'Unemployment Was Well Past 10%' When Obama Took Office - It Was Only 7.8% This is an indisputable fact. There's no grey area here. Unemployment was at 7.8 percent in January 2009. It didn't get to 10% until O'bama had been in office for 10 months.

"None of these 'mystery persons'..."?

You mean the two CIA agents who testified at the Congressional hearings? The only two "mystery persons" in that post?

Thought you'd know not only their names but their birthdates, birth places and addresses - and the names of their wives and children.

As Hillary would say, "what difference, at this point, does it make" if I didn't post their names? The point is their testimonies didn't favor this administration and they were demoted.

And what 'argument about Republicans' was that? I argued that the Eisenhower Civil Rights Act of 1957 was so altered and watered down that it was made impossible for the Federal Government to enforce it. It became imperative for John F Kennedy to sign another Civil Rights Bill of 1960 .

All the information from the briefing with Lt. Col. Bristol hasn't been released yet.

But Bristol did say he gave the Tripoli security team leader, Lt. Col. S.E. Gibson, permission to act freely in response to the attack.

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2013/07/31/Rep...

So that means Lt. Col. S.E. Gibson is the next one to be questioned to get some answers that have not been forthcoming by this administration.

<quoted text>From your source. Like me, he blames capitalism....
"...As the house prices grew further out of
line with fundamentals, the financial industry
adopted more sophisticated financial innovations
to support its growth. A key part of the story
was the growth of non-st
andard mortgages. Until the boom began to take off in the mid-90s,
the vast majority of mortgages had always been
fixed rate mortgages. However, adjustable
rate mortgages became a growing share of mortgages issued during the boom, peaking at
close to 35 percent in 2004-06. Not only did thes
e mortgages not provide the security of fixed
rate mortgages, they were often issued with below
market “teaser rates” that would reset to
igher levels after two-years, even if interest rates did not rise.... "
The Mortgage & Financial Crisis was a product of the Pseudo Liberals version of Socialism and what the role of the Federal Government was econoncially which there was nothing Capitalistic or Free Market about the US economy at the time in Home Mortgage Market at the level the Federal Government was involved in forcing the Banks to give loans to Low Income people who could not afford the houses to begin with and why there is so many setting empty now here in the US because they lost them.

Post a link to the study if you can. Agree that plenty of young adults still live at home___particularly 18 to 24 years of age.

Where did 31 come from?

Bush tried to warn Congress of the impending "depression".

Maxine Waters, Lacy Clay, Barney Frank and a host of other Democrats said there was absolutely nothing wrong.

The leadership in the GOP is divided among four or five of the most outspoken - mainly Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Chris Christie. There doesn't have to be a leader right now. One will emerge long before the elections, don't worry.

The

Democrats who invented Racism and Slavery

And... At least Bush didn't marry his cousin, FDR did...

The Tuskegee experiment began under the democratic FDR administration...

Supreme Court Judge Roy Black was a card carrying kkk member and wizard of the KKK nominated to the Supreme Court by FDR until 1972...

Social Darwinism and Eugenics was the rage of the 20's,30's and 40's among Wilson and hooded FDR democrats...

Klan Parent Hood founder Democrat, Margaret Sanger was busy controlling the birth rate of blacks and their population...

FDR told the chairman of the NAACP that he couldn't back anti-lynching laws because it would be politically devastating...

Liberal icon FDR has said on many occasions, he never wanted his picture taken with a black man.

KKK Beagle Grand Dragon Senator WV (D)Robert Byrd and Tennessee (D)Senator Al Gore Sr.. were busy voting against the civil rights act of 1957 and 1964...

President John F. Kennedy voted against the 1957 Eisenhower Civil rights Act while he was a senator, as did Democrat Senator Al Gore, Sr. And after he became president, John F. Kennedy was opposed to the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican.

If JFK had remained in office, none of the Civil Rights legislation or Great Society legislation reluctantly signed by LBJ would have passed.

<quoted text>Now, I hate to try to make you think, but for the entire length of the Bush administration, we were told every month that it takes 125 to 150 thousand new jobs just to keep the unemployment rate stable. Suddenly that kind of growth under O'bama sends our UE rate spiraling downward. In other words, in the universe O'bama took over from George W. Bush, the unemployment rate would still be over 14%. Now, the last time I checked, the planet has not gotten smaller, nor has the population of the United States.
