We better look beyond money and the number game. As Americans we have so much more to lose. If our rights as USA citizens are no longer respected and our Constitutional rights are no longer allowed, upheld, America the Land of The Brave and HOME OF THE FREE will no longer be. We will no longer be different than the third world. America is the country every one escapes to get away from their Government, now we allowing our government to take our rights away. No matter what party is in control we can not afford to lose what our forefathers put in place to protect us.

<quoted text>Here ya go "ActuaIIy", if it's wrong blame the Wall Street Journal: WASHINGTON—Orders for long-lasting manufactured goods tumbled in July as demand for aircraft fell and business spending weakened, sparking concerns about third-quarter growth.
The 7.3% monthly decline in orders for big-ticket items such as cars, furniture and appliances built to last three years or more—to a seasonally adjusted $226.6 billion—exceeded the 4% drop anticipated by economists.
Outside of the volatile transportation category, durable-goods orders were still relatively weak for the month, declining 0.6%, the Commerce Department said Monday.
July's decline was the first in four months. In June, total orders rose 3.9%, but were up only 0.1% excluding transportation.
Businesses and consumers typically make big-ticket purchases when they are confident about the economy. The decline suggests potential weakness ahead, despite expectations for a stronger second half of the year." http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788... Love those........
Are we waiting for your proof that it is the lowest in a year claim? Because your above reply makes no mention of it....again boy.

"WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)- Orders for big-ticket U.S. goods sank 7.3% in July, mostly because of a large decline in contracts for jetliners and large military goods, the government said Monday. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected orders to drop 4.9%. Stripping out the volatile transportation sector, orders fell a much smaller 0.6%, the Commerce Department said. Orders for core capital goods, a key barometer of private-sector business investment, slipped 3.3% to mark the first decline in five months. Shipments of core capital goods, a category used to calculate quarterly economic growth, dipped 1.5% in July. Orders for June, meanwhile, were unchanged at a 3.9% increase. In 2013, orders for durable goods have risen a modest 3.3% in the first seven months of the year compared to the same period one year earlier. Core orders are up 3.8% in the same span." Of course the year is not over yet. Still have the "Holiday Season" to pray for an increase.

Of course the key sector there would be the private business investment, which slipped. The "Holiday Season" might help but probably not, as most businesses should have already placed orders for the season. Any increase will probably be slight for rest of the year.

Dang Nab it before you go out and play the markets you had better do a lot more research. Markets have their seasons to, just as corporations do, for inventory adjustments for tax purposes. AND that is just a very small part of what you fail to comprehend. Here is how we are doing, so go to bed and have pleasant dreams. Obama has it in control beyond your ability to understand.
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.

Rule of thumb to follow is play Bear when republicans in power and Bull when democrats are in power. Bear is in things like bonds, gold, precious metals, etc. Bull in large well established winners. Follow Buffet in those pickings he is pretty good at that. GE, Johnson and Johnson, Utilities, you know growth stuff. Preferably if they pay dividends. Another way is sell off your bull stocks when republicans are in and wait for the markets to bottom towards the end of their administration then buy back in at low if a democrat wins.

How to go long on Markets. Simply observe the party in power.{R right wing} Play Bear ,…{D left wing} Play Bull simple as that.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Finally someone that knows what is going on. We are going in the direction of a Dictator. We still have time but it may be a civil war to get our country back on track. People fought this battle for us and we are letting our freedom to be taken away. What a mess we are in. A study of past History would make a difference.. What good is money when you don't have anything to buy. The Goverment telling us we have to share what money we do have. I'd say people need toWORK for what they get.

"CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) have assessed the effect of the recently announced one-year delay in the imposition of penalties for certain large employers and the corresponding delay in the implementation of two reporting requirements for certain large employers and health insurance coverage providers under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This letter describes the changes CBO has made in its current-law projections to reflect those actions and recently issued final regulations."

"Under the ACA, certain large employers that do not offer health insurance coverage that meets the affordability standard defined in that law will be subject to penalties. In addition, insurers and certain other health coverage providers (primarily employers that self-insure) will be required to report the names of those receiving coverage, and certain large employers will be required to report on the health insurance coverage offered to their full-time employees. On July 2, 2013, the Administration announced its decision to delay for one year the penalties for certain large employers that do not provide affordable coverage, as well as to delay reporting requirements for insurers and employers."

"There is a more significant change involving the update to CBO’s 10-year budget and economic projections that we usually issue in August. Because CBO’s spring update to the 10-year budget projections was done so recently and because the agency is facing many demands on its limited resources—for analyses of major immigration legislation, for example—CBO will not issue new budget and economic projections in August. The short time span between the issuance of the spring update and a possible August update means that relatively little additional information about budgetary developments would be available that might justify changes in the projections, and as of now, we see no evidence of such developments that would call for significant changes in our projections. In addition, the economic data that have become available since our previous projections do not suggest that significant changes in our economic projections are warranted. CBO will keep the Congress apprised if any significant differences arise between economic conditions and our previous forecast." The lack of an August update will not affect CBO’s cost estimates for legislation. In previous years, the August projections have provided background information for the Congress—but for enforcing budget rules and targets, the Congress’s long-standing practice has been to rely on CBO’s estimates of the cost of legislation relative to the budget projections issued in the spring (even after August projections are published).

As always, we are making every effort to provide the Congress with the information and analysis that it needs to make the critical decisions that it faces, and given the unusual circumstances that prevail this year, we believe that this plan is the best way to attain that goal." So good luck with CBO info after this month. http://www.cbo.gov/publication/44342

Dang, like your cut and paste articles. Reinforces what I have been saying all along. Debt is going down at an alarming rate, as defined by the CBO of May. You ask for my sources. Well I have put them out before, but as usual most of these commenter’s are incapable of reading and comprehension. Illiterates at best. So without any further delays I present some of my sources that I have been using on this thread. Apply the source with the book and then read and explore. The one you were recently referring to would be the one with statistics of economics. Now lets see if you can figure out which book that came out of. Listed only three so it should be easy…
Suggest some sources for you to explore. One is Michael Mandelbaum. Economic advisors to various presidents here in the USA and a few other outlying sovereignties. Has several books on the subject of Liberal International Free Trade Markets. One to get you started ,“The Ideas That Conquered The World”.
Another book,, on more specifics of internal inequality of economics and their results would be; Joseph E. Stiglitz One of his books just released “ The Price Of Inequality”. He is also has a history an economic advisor on the presidents councils. Nobel Prize in Economics.

BF, you quote left wing people on here and mix your own opinions in with published material in hopes that people on here believe you. Lots of luck with that because some on here call you on it on a regular bases. My own opinion is I do not want to be part of a world economy, I don't think it will work. For that to work, a lot of people will pay a high price. No thank you. I go out there and find a right winger to match everyone of your left. What is the point of that? So that being said, how do you feel about Syria? Try to expand your subject matter.
