    Another solid quarter indeed

    No can't argue with her chopping skills. Now throw out the books and start over again:

    H-P roundup: Job cuts, debt, M&A, commentary

    H-P has used its breakup announcement to state it now plans to cut 55K jobs through its ongoing restructuring. That's up from the 45K-50K announced in May, which itself was an increase from a prior target of 34K.
    36K jobs have been cut through the program thus far. Headcount was at 317K as of last year.
    H-P has also suggested much of its debt load ($19.8B at the end of July) will fall on its PC/printer unit (HP, Inc.), and that doing so will allow its enterprise IT ops (Hewlett-Packard Enterprise) to make bigger investments. Moody's and S&P have put the IT giant's debt on watch for a downgrade.

    Obviously the kids, men and women did not get the message. The grown up should know better but the kids deserve a chance --- how to act out instructions during high school and wearable cameras should help. Why the resistance?

    The departed was unarmed and black and teenager. Robbing a store or confrontational with a policeman were not death penalty cases in USA. BTW, police actions had shot unarmed sane or insane boys, men and women of all races, all in the name of being threatened. It is sad and time to put more efforts so that headlines like Police shot an unarmed XYZ be rare instead of frequent events.

    Begs to question what should those black men do to change the shoot to kill carte blanche police policy.

    As I had pointed out in earlier arguments, police used to deal with criminal elements with reason first and shoot to kill was last resort before the Onion Field incident over 50 years ago. The police should do better ... the body worn camera's is an easy and low cost step.Mandatory class for high school teens on what to do during various interactions with the police.

  • immigration actions lawful
    Associated Press
    By JIM KUHNHENN 3 hours ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 100 immigration professors and scholars declared Tuesday that President Barack Obama's decision to make several million immigrants illegally in the United States eligible to be spared from deportation is constitutional and within his administrative powers.

    The 135 scholars focused on two major provisions of Obama's executive actions announced last week. One would shield parents of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents from deportation and allow them to apply for work permits. The other measure would expand a program that shielded immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally as children. Those two programs could affect up to 4.4 million people.

    The scholars' statement asserts that the president's actions are a proper use of prosecutorial discretion.

    Tell those highly compensated do-nuthin's with steatopygia to pass an immigration reform. Don't ask don't talk didn't work in our arm forces and neither with the undocumented among us.

  • unclefulbert unclefulbert Nov 21, 2014 3:10 PM Flag

    Congress breaks laws by passing new ones that enact new one and/or violating some old ones, hopeful to provide remedies to "broken" laws. Barry signed the presidential orders to achieve the same, viz to shine light on the broken immigration laws and fix what he can until those do-nuthin's Congressmen inflicted with steatopygia get off their behinds.

  • ... and last year, 68 Democrats, Republicans, and Independents came together to pass a bipartisan bill in the Senate. It wasn’t perfect. It was a compromise, but it reflected common sense. It would have doubled the number of border patrol agents, while giving undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship if they paid a fine, started paying their taxes, and went to the back of the line. And independent experts said that it would help grow our economy and shrink our deficits. Had the House of Representatives allowed that kind of a bill a simple yes-or-no vote, it would have passed with support from both parties, and today it would be the law.
    And to those Members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill. I want to work with both parties to pass a more permanent legislative solution. And the day I sign that bill into law, the
    actions I take will no longer be necessary. Meanwhile, don’t let a disagreement over a single issue be a dealbreaker on every issue. That’s not how our democracy works, and Congress certainly shouldn’t shut down our government again just because we disagree on this. Americans are tired of gridlock. What our country needs from us right now is a common purpose – a higher purpose.

    Be reminded that the people voted for Obama twice even when unemployment was at 7.7%. While the people were unhappy with Barack in many ways, GOP's trouble is to offer a better alternative other than Reagan's cardboard cut out.

    Most of those democratic candidates who lost last Nov were misguided to refuse Obama's help. They didn't learn when Gore decided to go it alone in 2000 without Clinton's aide.

    Oh well, they put themselves in the loser box once they tried to disassociated with Obama's accomplishments despite of all out effort of the obstructionists:

    Obama saved the country from another Great Depression, rebuilt auto-industry, reformed healthcare, reformed Wall Street, more than doubled the S&P and more than tripled QQQ, created 20 straight quarters of GDP, show-cased 58 straight months of private sector job growth, reduced UE from 10% to 5.8%, got Bin Laden, got Gaddafi, got us out of Iraq and soon Afghan.
