Not really a new thing: Re:

Much has changed for African-Americans since the 1963 March on Washington (which, recall, was a march for “Jobs and Freedom”), but one thing hasn’t: The unemployment rate among blacks is about double that among whites, as it has been for most of the past six decades.

In 1954, the earliest year for which the Bureau of Labor Statistics has consistent unemployment data by race, the white rate averaged 5% and the black rate averaged 9.9%. Last month, the jobless rate among whites was 6.6%; among blacks, 12.6%. Over that time, the unemployment rate for blacks has averaged about 2.2 times that for whites.

The widest gaps, when black unemployment was as much as 2.77 times that of white unemployment, came in the late 1980s, as the manufacturing sectors that employed disproportionate shares of African-Americans shriveled. The smallest gaps, ironically, came in the summer of 2009 during the Great Recession; white unemployment rose so high, so fast, that the black jobless rate was “only” 1.67 times higher.

The black-white unemployment gap appears to have emerged in the 1940s, according to a 1999 analysis of Census data. Although labor economists, sociologists and other researchers have offered many explanations for the persistent 2-to-1 gap — from the differing industrial distribution of black and white workers to a “skills gap” between them — there’s no consensus on causes. One 2011 working paper, after reviewing existing research on wage and unemployment differentials among blacks and whites, concluded that “none of the existing models of race discrimination in the labor market explains the major empirical regularities.”

When CONGRESS approved the spending of borrowed money, they are obligated to continue making payments on the debt that CONGRESS made. It is so bad, that they have to borrow to make the payments, putting us in continually greater debt. The alternative is worse because-- if you do not make payments or make those payments late, the interest rate goes up. That ends up causing more debt than borrowing to make payments on time. Its arithmetic. Even republikans have caught on to the banking industry flim flams.

He got a clean bill because the republikans didn't want to shoot themselves and the USA in the foot again like they did last November. The debt belongs to CONGRESS. The y approved the expenditures. Making the payments is the responsibility of CONGRESS.
It would be like me refusing to pay my credit card payments until Obama did what I wanted him to do. I would only harm myself and Obama wouldn't give a damn. Then I could whine that Obama refused to negotiate and everyone would laugh their ass off at the stupidity because it didn't cost them anything.
Last November, people didn't laugh because the idiots playing games with our money cost the USA and its taxpayers over 24 billion dollars.

Obama is the stalking horse for the people who really want more low wage workers. NC republikans didn't even dress it up. They just passed a law inviting all the illegals to NC. The goal is to drive down wages by way of over supply.

Governor McCrry screwed up the Department Health an Human Services so badly that they cannot even put the correct address on an envelope. Turns out that he also reversed the role of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. DENR used to have the job of protecting the environment and natural resources of NC., Now their job is protection of polluters. McCrory and DENR have blocked 3 different lawsuit against Duke Power for contamination of ground and surface water with coal ash and settled the suits for peanuts. Now Duke just released 164,000,000 pounds of coal ash into the Dan River which supplies water for Eastern NC cities. McCrory is right on top of things . This time he is going to give Duke a good talking to. Had action been taken to start with , this disaster was avoidable. Look like McCrory is determined to make NC the toxic toilet of the USA ---again.

Obama signed an Executive Order today where all Federal government contract workers will make a minimum of $10.10 an hour. Is there anyone who can argue this decision of raising the standard of living for these folks?
