The Obama Economy...

'Families at the bottom of the income distribution saw continued substantial declines in
average real incomes between 2010 and 2013, continuing the trend observed between the
2007 and 2010 surveys...'

The Obama Economy!!!!!

'Families in the middle to upper-middle parts (between the 40th and 90th percentiles) of the
income distribution saw little change in average real incomes between 2010 and 2013 and thus
have failed to recover the losses experienced between 2007 and 2010'

'Only families at the very top of the income distribution saw
widespread income gains between 2010 and 2013, although mean and median
incomes were still below 2007 levels.'

'Retirement plan participation in 2013 continued on the down

I doubt it. They will win on appeal once the political spotlight is off. It was a mostly democrat jury so no surprise there. If they are guilty of anything it's being stupid. But stupid isn't illegal.

During my 21 years in the military, you had to have a 4 year degree to be commissioned (not Warrant Officer). What was your degree, if in fact you are a former commissioned officer in the US Army?

everybody hurts....

'The decrease in ownership rates for housing and corporate equity holdings was concen-
trated in the bottom and upper-middle parts of the income distribution, though the
decrease in business ownership was concentrated among higher-income families.'

Holder is a closet civil rights activist who still thinks the entire country lives in the deep south and the majority of Americans are former plantation owners. He gets confused because he's a black Attorney General and his fellow civil rights activist is the President of the United States and black.
Helping a former Marine rotting in a Mexican jail who was willing to give his life so Holder could live in his fantasy world to stir up black votes doesn't have a racial or political component to it.
"closet civil rights activist" LOL, you're incredible. As if being pro civil rights is bad. And you?
What are you? A closet racist; no, you've been out of that closet for a long time now.

Ah yes the old "wall" myth comes to life again.
The joint House and Senate intelligence committees' report of pre-September 11 intelligence failures did not find that the "wall" originated in the Clinton administration; the report states: "The 'wall' is not a single barrier, but a series of restrictions between and within agencies constructed over 60 years as a result of legal, policy, institutional and personal factors." Similarly, a ruling by the top-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review -- when it met for the first time in 2002 -- traces the origin of the "wall" to "some point during the 1980s."
Nor did enforcement of the "wall" end with the Clinton administration. In his April 12, 2004, testimony before the 9-11 Commission, then-Attorney General John Ashcroft conceded that his own deputy attorney general, Larry Thompson, reauthorized the "wall" in August 2001.
With every post you prove that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!

The Obama economy!

'Across the distribution of families grouped by usual income, all but the highest quintile saw declines in median income between 2010 and 2013, with second and third quintiles seeing the largest declines (7 percent and 6 per-cent, respectively).'

Yes, but will the republican ones go to prison? Who will comb and spray McDonnels hair? Let's watch this closely. Rick Scott, our criminal governor should have been in prison long ago.
Chris Christie? Well, perhaps he'd lose some weight. Rick Perry? I doubt it. Its' the Democrats who end up in prison.

the poor low IQ Progressives, The Obama Economy and the evil rich 1 percent....

'Median income increased 2 percent for the top income decile.
Mean income declined strongly for the bottom two quintiles and barely budged for those between
the 40th and 90th percentiles, whereas the mean income of the top decile increased 10 per-
cent between 2010 and 2013'

The pool of dark money floating around the 2014 campaign on behalf of Republicans is getting bigger and darker, with casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson willing to pitch in $100 million to help the Kochs buy the Senate:

Several of the casino mogul’s largest checks, in the mid-seven to low-eight figure range, are being sent to a quartet of conservative nonprofits that under IRS rules can mask donors’ names, say three GOP operatives and donors familiar with his contributions.
Adelson is focused heavily on helping the GOP capture the Senate, and by writing mega checks to politically active nonprofits, he can stay under the radar while still lavishing tens of millions of dollars groups that help Republicans get elected.

According to GOP sources, the most prominent dark-money outfits that have received—or are expecting—Adelson’s biggest checks are Americans for Prosperity, which was founded by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch; Crossroads GPS, which was cofounded by strategist and informal Adelson advisor Karl Rove; the conservative pro-Israel Republican Jewish Coalition; and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Explain Obama ousting Hosni Mubarak and supporting Morsi a member of the Muslim Brotherhood a known terrorist organization and what happened to Egypt which was pro-western because of Obama support of Morsi? Christians murdered, Coptic Churches burned to the ground and widespread unrest and gross violence! This went on for months finally the Egyptian Military stepped in ousted the terrorists Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama supported giving voice to Hamas another terrorist organization who is using UN built schools to warehouse rockets they lob into Israel. Hamas who sneak into Israel and board buses or other transit and blow themselves up so they can kill Jews. We know the money in aid that is sent to help the Palestinian People is used in terrorism but Obama still pushes giving more aid. UN concrete that was supposed to build houses, roads and schools instead is used for tunnels to commit terrorist acts against Israel. Our taxpayer dollars are funding terrorism!

Obama is the one who said Assad most go! Obama is the one who drew a red line that turned out to be joke! Obama doesn't have any coherent foreign policy but his actions/ inactions are spreading mayhem, more violence, explosion of terrorism across whole countries the entire M.E. is unstable. Saudis, Israel, Jordan, Turkey, and even the Kurds have expressed Obama can not be trusted! Libya has terrorist having a pool party in our former Embassy grounds. Turkey used to be a strong ally of America, Egypt used to be a strong ally of America, Jordan used to be a strong ally of America, Saudis used to be a strong ally of America, Israel used to be our strongest ally in the M.E. the list goes on and on and the difference is Obama's Foreign Policies compared to decades of foreign policies proceeding him!

This didn't start in 2003(libs like to claim) this started in January 2009 and will continue until America can vote into office a different president who makes American interest FIRST and the American People welfare FIRST.

Obama's inaction in Iraq has left Iraq in a terrible situation for the Iraqis and for us because ISIL is stronger than it's ever been, better financed, better equipped and we the American People are their #1 target...thanks to Obama's horrible foreign policy blunders!
