Re: Has the US economy improved over the past year?

What's the point? You asked where the 4% comes from when I had already addressed that as far as it can be in the post you quoted, so that's a complete waste of my time. The fact remains that labour force participation is 4% down from where it was when Bear Sterns failed and showing no sign of reboun...

A Google search on protectionism brings up those two periods in that order. But those periods can vary in their length and how big the unemployment rate is and the...

Re: Has the US economy improved over the past year?

Skip is complaining outside the subject. He doesn't like the existence of the economy at all, or else there is something in the fundamental architecture of the relationships between people that it describes which makes him angry in ways that he has difficulty articulating. Complaining that GDP is no...

"The seeds of discontent lie in the USA's name. A nation that is truly united does not need "united" in its name; unity is a given." The United States of America is called the United Stated of America cuz it is a nation comprised of individual, autonomous, states. Which is to say: Louisiana is not ...

Re: Political Parties Always Espouse High Voter Turnout

Re: The Struggle for the Soul of America

Statists demand forced obligations while the American soul is willing with the help of grace to invite voluntary obligations necessary to achieve rights. That IMO is why John Adams wrote: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of a...
