Another dual citizenship Senator ... I hate these guys putting his other citizenship over ours.
Doesn't this girl knew about sin? May be there is no Church or Planned Parenthood clinic in her neck of the woods?
Inline jobs number means September rate hike still likely
The average workweek gained 0.1 hours to 34.6 hours.
Average hourly earnings rose a nickel to $24.99, and are up 2.1% Y/Y.
In addition to an upward revision of 8K jobs to June's report, May gains were boosted by another 6K.
The labor force participation rate was flat at 62.6% after falling 30 basis points in June. One year ago, it was was 62.9%.
The broader U-6 unemployment rate fell to 10.4% in July from 10.5% a month earlier. One year ago it was 12.2%.
As the Fed has made clear, absent a significant deterioration in the numbers, a September rate hike is coming, so this print will keep the hawks in charge.
Ain't going to be boring for next 20 hours or so. They should do something meaningful about the budget deficit, from Bloomberg:
But how much do these and other government programs really cost you, and would eliminating them make a dent in the $3.8-trillion budget? We divided the cost of federal departments and programs by the number of U.S. residents—currently 321.4 million—to get an admittedly rough-and-ready idea of the per-person tab.

That is despite the do-nothings are on vacation or playing homage to Israel on latest anti-Obama strategy sessions with Nuttyahoo this month.
While it is fine and dandy to talk about a minisculous fed funding that Clinton Foundation can cover with a single speech by Billary, more pressing issues are jobs, income inequality, education, foreign policy - middle east, coal vs Nat-Gas vs renewable, fed budget, trade, .... SHE IS AS BAD AS THE OBSTRUCTIONISTS IN DOING NOTHING.

It is not fiction that Obama is more popular these days than any of the declared candidates. He would get a third term if 22nd Amendment is to be changed to allow for a third term or if sitting president is under 60.
Recall those horror stories of innocent young daughters went to back alleys to dirty unregulated shoddy facilities while some tried clothe hangers ... still hear storied of abandoned babies inside trash cans.
Recall when Obama wanted to form a coalition to sanction Iran, Nuttyahoo did his round with his "drawing a red line on the sand" to insist on disarming everything because Iran was "only months away from making the bumb" ...
Sep 27, 2012 - Speech: Netanyahu, pictured earlier this month, is expected to deliver ... an actual weapon, could then be accomplished within 'a few months, possibly a few weeks'. ... 'The relevant question is not when Iran will get the bomb,' he said. ... Iran has always denied it is seeking a nuclear weapon and insisted its
Do nuthin' congress are obstructing the infrastructure job bill but fighting tirelessly to pass more bills to obstruct Obamacare, family council community centers, Iran-Nuclear agreement, immigration reform ... at least they are not obstructing Obama mandates on higher gas mileage for our automobiles as they did in 2009.
And she and her lieutenants have been rewarded millions during this so called recovery?
Hard to imagine losing out to this crop of GOP boys picked by Koch Brothers:
The five most recent national live-interview polls put these candidates in the top 10:
Donald Trump: 23.2 percent
Jeb Bush: 12.8 percent
Scott Walker: 10.6 percent
Ben Carson: 6.6 percent
Mike Huckabee: 6.6 percent
Ted Cruz: 6.2 percent
Marco Rubio: 5.2 percent
Rand Paul: 4.8 percent
Chris Christie: 3.4 percent
John Kasich: 2.8 percent
Earlier this week it was revealed that over 100 former US ambassadors sent a letter to President Barack Obama expressing their support for the "landmark agreement" struck between world powers and Iran.
"The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran stands as a landmark agreement in deterring the proliferation of nuclear weapons," the letter begins. "Without your determination and the admirable work of Secretary of State Kerry and his team, this agreement would never have been reached."
Ex-security figures in Israel urge Netanyahu to accept Iran deal ...

to sell off the real estate holdings that past CEOs had acquired through decades. Seems to me only the sprawling Palo Alto site is the last significant presence of the legacy of Bill/Dave. Apple has been building a giant campus on the old HP Cupertino site and now:
Apple has bought a large parcel in north San Jose along First Street, enough space for an office and research campus where the technology titan could eventually have 15,000 workers -- or more -- according to public property records.
Apparently some of those anti Obama campers have forgotten that President Obama is not running for another term, though he would easily beat any of those GOP candidates if he could run for a third term.
Russia reassures Israel over Iran nuclear deal
Russian President Vladimir Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday that the deal on Iran's nuclear program would improve security in the Middle East and guaranteed that Tehran would not acquire nuclear arms. Israel plans to lobby
Yahoo is at it again removing my post on this thread. All I did was relating the difference between the doctored video to the unedited one.
No wonder yahoo stock is going down hill and I for one only posts on job days.
From Gladwell's What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures:
Few people knew what it was or how it tasted, or had any particular desire for an alternative to French’s or the runner-up, Gulden’s. Then one day the Heublein Company, which owned Grey Poupon (Dijon mustard), discovered something remarkable: if you gave people a mustard taste test, a significant number had only to try Grey Poupon once to switch from yellow mustard. In the food world that almost never happens; even among the most successful food brands, only about one in a hundred has that kind of conversion rate. Grey Poupon was magic.
