Meanwhile, factory activity fell shy of expectations […]

Losing the Black Vote?

Losing the Black Vote?

In 2008 Barack Obama received 95% of the African American vote. The news media reports rumblings of unhappiness (no surprise with unemployment over 14% for African Americans and young adult Blacks at 24%).

The Job Sinkhole

The Job Sinkhole

Today the American unemployment rate remains unchanged at 8.2 percent.  The economy is still five million jobs shy of the breakeven point as America continues to drown in a sea of growing government red ink while struggling to tread water under the overburden of oppressive big government regulations. Since the start of the seemingly never […]

Don’t Be Stupid, It’s Still the Economy

The United States Supreme Court has ruled.  The obama”care”tax is Constitutional. Of course, that depends on what your definition of tax is. Institutionalized “progressive” leftists in the “mainstream” media have mockingly praised the majority opinion of swing vote Chief Justice Roberts.  Conservatives have expressed scorn for Roberts over the decision.  How long will it be […]

First Time Unemployment Drops Again... But...

First Time Unemployment Drops Again… But…

Like many I look forward to seeing the unemployment numbers released by the Department of Labor each Thursday morning. These numbers reflect individual’s initial filing for unemployment benefits.
