Well it seems the Census Bureau itself has finally chimed in...
From Reuters: •*CENSUS BUREAU SEES NO 'SYSTEMIC MANIPULATION' OF JOBS DATA
So, I guesss that means either manipulation isn't systemic, ergo the chicago crew did it for political gain, ergo they need to be sent packing.... or it is, and the system needs to be rebooted... or.... C all of the above..
Have these ppl on shame... Have well really become another banana republic?
Let's face it, we have a circus for a government and 'Carney' is aptly named to be in it.
So true and absolutely #$%$ shameless. Three more years. God help us.
I can't either... Other than the fact that I couldn't stomach John Maccain I don't know what I was thinking back then. Must have gotten caught up in all the "change" garbage.
And to think, I voted for this #$%$.
Was probably refering to TWTR... Wait, does TWTR even have earnings?
Please, with more the 50% of the population now dependent on some form of government largesse (be it SNAP or a MIC contract), there is no "taxpayer".
The "real" problem is Barry isn't the only one says that, a sh!tload of dems & reps are parroting him in both houses of congress, and that's never a good sign.
You really have to move somewhere that's not down wind from the nearest kool-aid factory.
Oh yeah, lay off the well water as well.
Is it simple profit-taking, or something else... Most preferred stock shares have lost most if not all their gains from earlier in the day; some have even turned negative after being up over 10% on the day.
Yup, the company expected an up to a 10% drop in revenues. Welcome to Mr. Yellen's recovery.
Because who really needs the internet... Oh yeah, with the social media bubble in full force, apparently insolvent retailers do: after all FB, TWTR, LNKD et al are all trading based on the assumption that advertising budgets are getting infinite-er by the day, right?.
Enjoy the holidays as well with friends and family. During these days that's what really counts.
The lack of prosecution of bankers responsible for the great financial collapse has been a hotly debated topic over the years, leading to the coinage of such terms as "Too Big To Prosecute", the termination of at least one corrupt DOJ official, the revelation that Eric Holder is the most useless Attorney General in history, and even members of the judicial bashing other members of the judicial such as in last night's essay by district judge Jed Rakoff. And naturally, the lack of incentives that punish cheating and fraud, is one of the main reasons why such fraud will not only continue but get bigger and bigger, until once again, the entire system crashes under the weight of all the corruption and all the Fed-driven malinvestment. But what can be done? In this case, Vietnam may have just shown America the way - use the death penalty on convicted embezzling bankers. Because if one wants to promptly stop an end to financial crime, there is nothing quite like the fear of death to halt it.
Bloomberg reports that a Vietnam court will consider the death penalty for a Vu Quoc Hao, the former general director of Agribank Financial Leasing Co. who is charged with embezzling 531 billion #$%$. While that sounds like a whole lot of #$%$, converted into USD it is only $25 million, or what Goldman would call "weekend lunch money." Just imagine how much cleaner Wall Street would be, where the typical bank fraud is generally in the billions, if bankers and other white collar criminals had the fear of death if caught manipulating petty prices or outright stealing amounts that are considered petty cash by most of the 0.001%.
And while one can dream, an outcome such as this in the US is impossible: after all it is these same embezzling bankers that control the legislative and judicial branches (the executive branch is too busy with 404 website errors), which is why deterrence of any substantial scale will never take place in the US and small, medium and large-scale theft will continue unabated, with the occasional slaps on the wrist, until there is nothing left to steal.
