<quoted text>No idjit, most republicans are not SAYING poor people should starve. They are not thinking things through. They are giving no thought to cause and effect, just reacting like you are, without considering the consequences. What do you think the consequences of cutting the minimum AND welfare would be? Good all around or what? A real wake up call for the poors to get them off their butts and into college tuition payments so they can be somebody?

Take your time....
Who is not thinking is you. The policies you advocate encourage and incentive the very behavior that your heart cries out against and bleeds for. You support policies that sentence the people your heart bleeds for to the very fate you cry out against. You encourage it. The irony...

Me thinks it would provide an incentive to make better choices in the first place and yes motivate people to improve. Necessity is the mother of invention.

There are lots of people who are happy to just get buy in life, especially when someone else is footing the bill and improvement would take more effort than they want to exert.

Me, I have no problem with cause and effect. Stick your hand in a bear trap, lose an arm, and I say you are an effing idiot ... what did you expect idiot. Have kids while asking people if they want fries with that and while you can barely take care of yourself and I say you are an effing idiot. You, in contrast say they are innocent victims of society and deserve a white picket fence.

You don't believe in personal responsibility. I don't believe in enablement. The same problems that exist on an individual level when you enable poor decision making also exist on a national level when you do the same. Liberals ignore this and think that if you do it on a national level and enable poor decision making, you'll get a different result. It defies logic and common sense.

Nonfarm employment advanced at a seasonally adjusted 288,000 last month, the Labor Department said Thursday. April's 304,000 increase was the strongest since January 2012.

The unemployment rate fell to 6.1% in June, the lowest level since September 2008. The improvement reflected more people finding jobs while the size of the workforce remained relatively steady.

June marked the best five-month stretch of job creation since early 2006.

The president noted that the U.S. has "done better than the vast majority of other countries" since the 2008 financial crisis, but called for acts of "economic patriotism" he said would help boost growth, such as increasing the federal minimum wage.

U.S. stocks climbed after the report, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average topping 17000 for the first time in intraday trading.

German lawmakers on Thursday approved the country's first national minimum wage.

Most workers in Europe's biggest economy will be guaranteed at least 8.50 euros ($11.60) per hour under the legislation, which takes effect Jan. 1. Some employers will have two years to phase in the minimum wage; under-18s will be exempted, as will the long-term unemployed for six months after they return to work.

President Barack Obama on Wednesday said that “further reforms” of Wall Street are needed, arguing that there remains too much focus on making profits through big banks’ trading desks as opposed to investing in companies and the “real” economy.

Obama said in an interview with the Marketplace radio show that the 2010 Dodd-Frank law put in place important policies to safeguard against another financial crisis but that more can be done

“Right now, if you are in one of the big banks, the profit center is the trading desk, and you can generate a huge amount of bonuses by making some big bets; you will be rewarded on the upside,” he said in the interview.“If you make a really bad bet, a lot of times you’ve already banked all your bonuses. You might end up leaving the shop, but in the meantime everybody else is left holding the bag. Now what we’ve been able to do is to try to prevent taxpayers from being the folks who are left holding the bag. But it’s still not a real efficient way for us to run a financial system. That’s going to require some further reforms.”

To make a long story short; Wall Street is being built on 'false pretenses'
that the economy is improving when in fact it's the worse it's been in over 14 years.
Big banks again are about to bury 'tax payers' by becoming another burden.
IF this happens ---(which it will)--- the recession 'we' just went thru will look like a cake-walk.
The depression will cause "CHAOS" like this nation and the world has never seen! I'm not a dooms-day advocate "BUT" the {writing is on the wall}

I'm not going to argue my reasons for believing this but all you have to do is
look around you and this country to see it coming.

Of course you're not going to argue your reasons for believing it. I only hope that your blind assumptions come true. Total collapse of the US economy would be fantastic. Just imagine the absolute chaos that would ensue. This economy goes down taking the economies of the world with it. Governments collapsing, rioting in the streets, millitarys turning on the people, citizen killing citizen. It would be grand to see. Maybe we'll get lucky and someone will push the little red button and end this failed experiment. Since they built them, might as well use them. Let's all do our part to speed it up. Start buying everything on credit and then not paying your bill. You know, like what we're doing now. The more we buy, the sooner we can get to the fun stuff. You know, all that pillaging and plundering. We'll have a grand ol time won't we?

See you in the streets.

Trivialized Terraformer you 'read-in' perfectly on what I was insinuating.
Do you also see this as a possible scenario or is it all sarcasm?
Does Obama see this also, is he preparing for it, even helping create it?
Is this part of what the "New World Oder" is creating?
How far out on the "Conspiracy ladder" = Jacob's Ladder = are you willing to go?
"blind assumptions" you say, but what if they're not?

No sarcasm intended. The intelligence of the world has fallen to such a ridiculously low level that I see no purpose to continue with the whole mess. The uneducated have become the majority. They believe that by electing one party or another will put things right. They're delusional. No political party is going to fix the mess that we are in. And I do mean "none" of them. So why not just get it over with. Push the buttons, wipe the slate clean, the planet will heal itself and start anew. May be whatever life form repopulates the world in a billion years can make it work. At least they'll have us to look back on and say, "Let's not do it like they did". And who knows, maybe we'll get in a bit of "Road Warrior" esq time before the end. The prepers and militias would get a kick out of that.

I say let it happen. The only ones worried about a melt down of the economy are the ones that are responsible for it anyway. They're afraid that they won't be able to buy more "stuff". Cause keeping up with the joneses is a full time job.

Now that's the attitude I was searching for Placated Platapus, you think the dumbazzes on this forum will get it?
No, never mind, I already know the answer.
There's no educating them to the realizations of what's to come but the sad part is it effects 'us' as much as it does them!

Trading volume and volatility are dragging along low levels as stocks reach new highs. That’s made for a nervous complacency where a correction could really blindside investors, some stock pickers are warning

So what is the likelihood of a correction?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average experiences a bull market correction on average roughly every 12 months. The Dow is now up approximately 59% from its last correction low on October 3, 2011 and is on its 32nd month without a 10% pullback.

Many acknowledge that a pullback is coming. Stocks have already spent half the year clawing their way back to low-to-mid single digit gains for the year after an initial drop that followed 2013’s 30% gain.

Still, at its healthiest, a bull can run for quite a long time without a pause. The longest period without at least a 10% pullback was during the 1990-1997 run, at 82 months

It looks like President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are going to have another talk about U.S. spying.

Germany is demanding an explanation from the United States after the arrest of a German foreign intelligence service official who says he passed along secret documents to the Americans.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest declined to discuss the spying allegations against a German citizen, but said the U.S. relationship with Germany is "incredibly important" to the president and his team.

"We're going to work with the Germans to resolve this situation," Earnest said.
