re: I'll be attending Donald Trump's Town Hall meeting in Colorado Springs on Friday - Tuscaloosa
[quote]Get there really early. The "ticket" doesn't guarantee entry. I know people who stood in line for two hours and then couldn't get in because it overfilled at one of his other stops[/quote] Good point. I'll check around and see how far in advance I should get there. It would suck to s...

re: What alternate universe is the DNC in? - Tuscaloosa
Are you taking into consideration what factors may be causing this? Things like more students than ever before choosing to go to college? Rapidly increasing retirement from the Baby Boomer generation? Shigeru Fujita of the Federal Reserve estimates that 80% of the decline since 2012 is due ...

[quote]Dude.... really? You go back to 1948 on the labor participation rate to claim that things aren't so bad, comparatively? Have you forgotten a little event that happened post-WWII, namely women entering the workforce? Why don't you try this labor participation rate chart instead? [/quote]...

re: What alternate universe is the DNC in? - Tuscaloosa
[quote]If "real unemployment" is so low why do we have the lowest workforce participation rate in history with almost 92 million people that are willing to work still unemployed. [/quote] I don't make the numbers, I just post them. Doesn't seem so bad in the grand scheme of things, considering ...

re: What alternate universe is the DNC in? - Tuscaloosa
[quote]We have about 23 million more Americans in 2016 than in 2007, and (according to your chart) we have 400,000 more full-time jobs over that time span? [/quote] Misleading. How many of those "23 million more Americans" are of full time working age? How many jobs were lost during the reces...

re: What alternate universe is the DNC in? - Tuscaloosa
Looks like a carry over from the recession, where we saw that initial huge spike. I'd be interested in seeing how those numbers look since 2013, where your graph left off. What we do know is that the number of full time emoloyees in the work force is now higher than it was pre-recession. htt...

re: Obama may be the best campaigner of all time - Tuscaloosa
[quote]And you failed to address his point[/quote] I obliterated the entire premise behind his point. There has been exactly one president since 1960 with a higher approval rating in the July of his final year in office than Barack Obama, and that was Bill Clinton. Obama's approval rating is th...

re: What alternate universe is the DNC in? - Tuscaloosa
[quote]Because NOT INCLUDED in those numbers are that more people aren't even bothering to seek work than ever in the history of our country[/quote] False. That's what "Real Unemployment" is. The unemployment rate adjusted by the workforce labor participation rate. Without that adjustment, the...

[quote]Why do bring up approval ratings as if they are meaningful? [/quote] They are meaningful, but I didn't bring them up. The author of the OP brought them up. [quote]How about a big one according to you dems? His approval rating is definitely lower than in 2009. With his glowing record, s...

re: Obama may be the best campaigner of all time - Tuscaloosa
[quote]Well according to the American Presidency Project, it is not. [/quote] You should probably re-read your link. For instance, Obama's numbers throughout the month of May were consistently higher than what Reagan's were. Reagan's numbers were at 50% in July, which is exactly the same as Oba...

[quote]You were saying...?[/quote] Exactly what I said in my previous statement. Iran Contra ring a bell? Regan's entire 2nd term average was only 53%, and that was AFTER he was polling in the 60s early in his 2nd term. He was in the low 40s after Iran Contra, and didn't start recovering u...
