By the end of the year the wipe out in oil will erase all of Obama's fake job growth. That AFTER the government and the Fed pumped $13 trillion dollars into the economy.

It's ends like the Walking Dead

Even your dem candidates and moderators last night knew Clinton contributed to the crash just as much as Bush. That's pretty fuckin sad, dude..

A lot of silly statements above.

There will be great oil washout, as Franks so hopes for.

If China implodes, we will survive. If we implode, the world goes into serious depression. There is no indication of that happening.

Likely because we need to add somewhere in the range of 180,000 just to keep up with population growth, retirements etc., so 150,000 is nothing to be happy about.

The libs need a labor economics class. Badly.

beat me to it. Think about how many immigrants we let in every month. How many cross the border every month.
Its sad to think that "thinking" is becoming a rarity..

And then we tank the industries that they participate in ...Construction, manufacturing and agriculture. So that we then get to pay for them via gov handouts and tax dollars.

And that's after Obama and the Fed borrowed an
151K was significantly below expectations.

We remain stuck in the mud, and of more concern, there is no economy on the planet that currently can lead us out of it.

That's the fundamental transformation Obama had in mind

We are not bad compared to previous years, but we have weaknesses that need to be corrected.
