    The entrapping jobless plunge (1)

    >>Yes. It's scary, no telling how much further that employment is going to fall. I'd like to see the 1929-19xx line on there too. I have a feeling we might be retracing it.<<

    Twice I tried posting my reply via Yahoo, but apparently the source to which I linked is a Yahoo competitor. Both times, Yahoo deleted my post before it saw the light of day. And Yahoo does not allow T___U__ links. So I gave up and went to IV. (It took two attempts at IV because IV's 'Basic Text Editor' is malfunctioning, but my second attempt succeeded.) So please find my reply here:

    *Sigh* Yahoo still won't allow this to post, so please delete the bullets between the letters in the above link.

      Yes that's what I was looking for and we do seem right on track to replay the great depression. We're even doing stupid things like increasing Taxes (on energy and health) and erecting tariff barriers (can't let those Chinese and Asians manufacture stuff in CO2 belching factories then sell them in the US to compete against our CO2 taxed equivalents even if we don't have any equivalents, we'll tax them at the door . . . can you say Smoot Hawley?).

        I have to applaud the retaliating countries; they would have sabotaged their own economies if they had rolled over and acquiesced. Are the Chinese and Asians reacting similarly to Obama's tariff barriers? (I try to steer clear of Chinese products anyway. They break without my even touching them.)

        If something isn't done to get Obama out of office, America is doomed. The corruption — including that of Congress and the Supreme Court — will totally overwhelm, destroy capitalism, quash our free speech, devastate our health.

        He just lost some more points in a Gallup poll. The previous one was approve 64, disapprove 30, spread +34, and this current one is approve 59, disapprove 34, spread +25. A sliding approval rating doesn't do a thing to get him out of office, but at least it might show that a few people are waking up. Take a quick look at the graph below the top box of numbers. The red line finally looks like a dowser in reverse!

        I wonder how many Americans approved of Obama and his proud-of-America wife spending Independence Day in Russia.
