The statistics are facts, making the article factual. DUH
Too bad you can't read or you might have gleaned that.
But then, you're so ignorant you thought Henry Ford was an admirer of Josef Stalin.
That about proves you to be the biggest idiot here, aside from Dweeb and the other TX morons.
Economists are increasingly showing mistrust of any economic data oozing from the Magic Negro Administration because it always gets heavily revised. Are you asleep beneath your Propaganda Blanket again?

But then, you're so ignorant you didn't know Henry Ford was an admirer of Josef Stalin.

What is your explanation for the sumultaneous coordinated communications black out last Thursday?
.... well?
First of all, there was no "simultaneous coordinated communications black out". The blackouts happened on the same day but were hardly "simultaneous".

Unlike a conspiracy nut, I have no "explanation". That would require knowing the facts.

However, I did mention in a prior post that it was coincidental that the TOPIX blackout happened a week after Topix co-founder Chris Tolles and a group of "over 80 top innovators from around the country" were invited to the White House to collaborate on ways to improve disaster response and recovery efforts.

September 3, 2014:

"Last week, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) jointly challenged a group of over 80 top innovators from around the country to come up with ways to improve disaster response and recovery efforts."

"During the “Data Jam/Think Tank,” we discussed response and recovery challenges with the participants and other Federal leaders, including Patricia Hoffman, Assistant Secretary at the Department of Energy and Dr. Nicole Lurie, Assistant Secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services. The participants then broke into subgroups to brainstorm innovative ideas for addressing those challenges, vote on the best ideas, and commit to implementing them."

http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/09/03/inn...

"Topix CEO Chris Tolles called our engineering team back in Palo Alto and had them put together a news feed tailored specifically for news about a given disaster. The feed went live before the meeting was over and you can find it here on the White House website!"

Record Low Labor Participation Rate Not Due to Retirement or School
Submitted by Robert Oak on November 13, 2013 - 4:29am

The October unemployment report showed a record low labor participation rate of 62.8%, graphed below. Many dismiss these record low labor participation rates by claiming more people are retiring and young people are just in school. Is this true or is something more sinister going on? Are people simply dropped out of the labor force who in fact really need a job are is it as they say, older Americans are enjoying their golden years, no longer needing to work and all the kids are just lining the higher education halls?

It is true the labor participation rate has declined since 2000, about a percentage point from that time until just before the recession. Yet after October 2007 the labor participation rate has declined by 3.2 percentage points, a much faster rate than before the recession. The labor participation rate is a ratio of the population, not locked up somewhere, sick or in the military, age 16 or older, who are participating in the labor force by either looking for a job or have one.
To take a look at the finite details of labor participation, we must use raw data for seasonally adjusted labor statistics are not available at this level of granularity. To get any sort of validity from using not seasonally adjusted data, we must compare figures to one year ago to remove seasonality from the patterns. Labor markets are highly seasonal, think summer jobs and temporary holiday help and one gets the idea. For this analysis, we're going to use October as our month to compare to past years since this is the most recent month available for labor statistics. Bear in mind there is a month to month margin of error with the BLS current population survey unemployment statistics. Below is the labor participation rate, not seasonally adjusted, for just the month of October going back to 1999.

May 31, 1929:
Ford signs agreement with Soviet Union
Previous DayMay 31CalendarNext Day
0
After two years of exploratory visits and friendly negotiations, Ford Motor Company signs a landmark agreement to produce cars in the Soviet Union on this day in 1929.
The Soviet Union, which in 1928 had only 20,000 cars and a single truck factory, was eager to join the ranks of automotive production, and Ford, with its focus on engineering and manufacturing methods, was a natural choice to help. The always independent-minded Henry Ford was strongly in favor of his free-market company doing business with Communist countries. An article published in May 1929 in The New York Times quoted Ford as saying that "No matter where industry prospers, whether in India or China, or Russia, all the world is bound to catch some good from it."
Signed in Dearborn, Michigan, on May 31, 1929, the contract stipulated that Ford would oversee construction of a production plant at Nizhni Novgorod, located on the banks of the Volga River, to manufacture Model A cars. An assembly plant would also start operating immediately within Moscow city limits. In return, the USSR agreed to buy 72,000 unassembled Ford cars and trucks and all spare parts to be required over the following nine years, a total of some $30 million worth of Ford products. Valery U. Meshlauk, vice chairman of the Supreme Council of National Economy, signed the Dearborn agreement on behalf of the Soviets. To comply with its side of the deal, Ford sent engineers and executives to the Soviet Union.
At the time the U.S. government did not formally recognize the USSR in diplomatic negotiations, so the Ford agreement was groundbreaking.(A week after the deal was announced the Soviet Union would announce deals with 15 other foreign companies, including E.I. Du Pont de Nemours and RCA.) As Douglas Brinkley writes in "Wheels for the World," his book on Henry Ford and Ford Motor, the automaker was firm in his belief that introducing capitalism was the best way to undermine communism. In any case, Ford's assistance in establishing motor vehicle production facilities in the USSR would greatly impact the course of world events, as the ability to produce these vehicles helped the Soviets defeat Germany on the Eastern Front during World War II. In 1944, according to Brinkley, Stalin wrote to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, calling Henry Ford "one of the world's greatest industrialists" and expressing the hope that "may God preserve him."
Yeah, OK 1929___what's your point Junebug?

This is from the History Channel__Wiki__ and it's mostly correct__but what's the point?

'Fox & Friends' Hosts Really Don't Get The Problem With Ray Rice Hitting His Wife

The 'Fox & Friends' co-hosts responded pretty much exactly how you'd expect them to on Monday after video was released of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his wife in an elevator.

Without giving many details about the assault, the hosts quickly began comparing the incident to other cases of domestic violence among celebrities. But rather than putting any kind of blame on the abuser, the co-hosts pointed the finger at the women.

"She still married him!" Steve Doocy said of Rice's wife, Janay Palmer.

"Rihanna went back to Chris Brown right after [he assaulted her]," Brian Kilmeade said. "A lot of people thought that was a terrible message."

Doocy compared the video to the elevator incident between Jay Z and Solange. To which Kilmeade then-- you guessed it-- defended Jay Z for not hitting back.

"I think the message is, take the stairs," Kilmeade concluded.

No. That's really not the message.

Doocy then chimed in once more.

"The message is, when you're in an elevator, there's a camera."

Nope. Still not the message.
