Only 96,000 service type jobs created in Aug. Will probably be revised down to 86,000 jobs, or less.
Unemployment rate drops from 8.3 to 8.1% but only after 368,000 people give up looking for a job and so completely drop out of the jobs market.
Oh, I forgot, the 368,000 people who dropped out of the jobs market are just being polite to make room for some of the 1.2 million deferred deportation "illegals" that Obama issued work permits to. After all, Obama thinks that illegals getting a job is more important than "legal" citizens getting a job.
Obama has to keep those latino voters happy at all costs.
Startling. Nearly 400,000 Americans just gave up. The democrats have failed.

So? What else is new?
The White House, or should I say, the "failure" inside the White House posing as a President, has missed the deadline he voluntarily imposed on himself to be "a one term President" if he couldn't fix the economy, the deficit, the unemplyment rate, etc. in his first term. At this point, he's proven himself to be an absolute forked tongue "liar" along with being an absolute failure as a President. It's obvious he couldn't even do a good job as a communnity organizer in the neighborhood his brother lives in, in Kenya.

8.1% which is a lie...9.1% counting the 368,000 that dropped out.....If Obama can just get a million more to quit looking.........he can proclaim his 7% the week befoe election.........without providing one job...

+96,000

368,000 DROPPED OUT

848,921,000 'NOT IN LABOR FORCE'

equals 4 years of failure.

According to Clint Eastwood the election of Obama is the greatest Hoax ever perpetrated on America. I agree. The Democrats had to be on pot or something to think they could get by with this frce forever. He totally failed even his own people. Why do you think Chicago has become a killing field

The economic policies of this President are causing economic chaos. No growth, no jobs, and no plans for the future. We cannot survive 4 more years of this government.

"Billionaires Dumping Stocks, Economist Knows Why

Despite the 6.5% stock market rally over the last three months, a handful of billionaires are quietly dumping their American stocks ... and fast.

Warren Buffett, who has been a cheerleader for U.S. stocks for quite some time, is dumping shares at an alarming rate. He recently complained of “disappointing performance” in dyed-in-the-wool American companies like Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, and Kraft Foods.

In the latest filing for Buffett’s holding company Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett has been drastically reducing his exposure to stocks that depend on consumer purchasing habits. Berkshire sold roughly 19 million shares of Johnson & Johnson, and reduced his overall stake in “consumer product stocks” by 21%. Berkshire Hathaway also sold its entire stake in California-based computer parts supplier Intel.

With 70% of the U.S. economy dependent on consumer spending, Buffett’s apparent lack of faith in these companies’ future prospects is worrisome.

Unfortunately Buffett isn’t alone.

Fellow billionaire John Paulson, who made a fortune betting on the subprime mortgage meltdown, is clearing out of U.S. stocks too. During the second quarter of the year, Paulson’s hedge fund, Paulson & Co., dumped 14 million shares of JPMorgan Chase. The fund also dumped its entire position in discount retailer Family Dollar and consumer-goods maker Sara Lee.

Finally, billionaire George Soros recently sold nearly all of his bank stocks, including shares of JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Goldman Sachs. Between the three banks, Soros sold more than a million shares.

So why are these billionaires dumping their shares of U.S. companies?

After all, the stock market is still in the midst of its historic rally. Real estate prices have finally leveled off, and for the first time in five years are actually rising in many locations. And the unemployment rate seems to have stabilized.

It’s very likely that these professional investors are aware of specific research that points toward a massive market correction, as much as 90%.

One such person publishing this research is Robert Wiedemer, an esteemed economist and author of the New York Times best-selling book Aftershock.

Before you dismiss the possibility of a 90% drop in the stock market as unrealistic, consider Wiedemer’s credentials.

In 2006, Wiedemer and a team of economists accurately predicted the collapse of the U.S. housing market, equity markets, and consumer spending that almost sank the United States. They published their research in the book America’s Bubble Economy..."

Yeah, we're in great shape.

I apologize. You're not bonkers, you're howling mad. Can you get you meds refilled today or are you typing from your 72 hr. commitment facility? You're rich? That's rich! Next you'll be the Queen of Sheba or Winston Churchill. What a whackazoid.
While she is entertainingly mad, she probably is filthy rich now that her "abusive" grandfather passed away in March. He was a real estate tycoon in San Francisco, and she posted for years how she couldn't wait for him to die so she could run off to Europe. She changes her Topix name every now and then, but she's not hard to find.

;D
