Average wage drops from 62,000 to 47,000 a year under Obama. The 8.9 million jobs Democrats claim they created pay a lot less then the ones lost. 93 billion dollars a year in lost wages. Thanks Obama.
WRONG again Q boy. Median income per family is 50,000 and has been for the last 5 years. No way the average wage was ever 62,000. Stay away from numbers you have no idea how to use them or analyze them.
Islamic militants hold hundreds of women captive in Iraq, official says

BAGHDAD – Hundreds of women from the Yazidi religious minority have been taken captive by Sunni militants with "vicious plans," an Iraqi official said Friday, further underscoring the dire plight of Iraq's minorities at the hands of the Islamic State group.
Kamil Amin, the spokesman for Iraq's Human Rights Ministry, said hundreds of Yazidi women below the age of 35 are being held in schools in Iraq's second largest city, Mosul. He said the ministry learned of the captives from their families.
"We think that the terrorists by now consider them slaves and they have vicious plans for them," Amin told The Associated Press. "We think that these women are going to be used in demeaning ways by those terrorists to satisfy their animalistic urges in a way that contradicts all the human and Islamic values."
The U.S. has confirmed that the Islamic State group has kidnapped and imprisoned Yazidi women so that they can be sold or married off to extremist fighters, said a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information came from classified intelligence reports. There was no solid estimate of the number of women victimized, the official said.
9 Obama Foreign Policy Pronouncements That Now Look Especially Idiotic
“Al Qaeda Has Been Decimated.”
“Iraq's Future Will Be In The Hands Of Its People.”
“A Red Line For Us Is We Start Seeing a Whole Bunch of Chemical
Weapons Moving Around or Being Utilized. That Would Change My Calculus.”
“Egyptians Have Made It Clear That Nothing Less Than Genuine Democracy Will Carry The Day.”
“To Take Out a Credit Card From The Bank of China In The Name of Our Children…That’s Irresponsible. It’s Unpatriotic.”
“No Question That Libya…Would Be Better Off With Qaddafi Out Of Power.”
“You know, they said we needed to triple the Border Patrol. Or
now they’re going to say we need to quadruple the Border Patrol. Or
they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat.”
It has been six years. Obama has not helped the economy. He has hurt it and keeps on getting in the way.
The economy is resistant. But we won't see anything meaningful until O is gone. After all, if he sees the economy start to hum. All he sees is more taxes.
Such is a lib.
82 trillion in wealth so debt not a problem. Given the near financial collapse the Fed's response was entirely appropriate. The only real concern about their policy is that they may be ending QE too soon.
