LOL! He decides to read off the script in fear of having to name three government agencies he would cut as president. In a way, very endearing as Reagan was in his last years in office.
Hopeless to alter the mindsets of the Limpball listeners. For them, it is don't confuse me with facts, my mind's made up,
Lowest jobless claim since 1973 !!!! Yes sir, when prime rate was 7% and Nixon was about to abolish Au standard etc:

Chicago Fed index rises past estimates

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of Americans filing new applications for unemployment benefits last week fell to its lowest level in more than 41-1/2 years, suggesting the labor market maintained a solid pace of job growth in July.
Iowa past winners are not so good in recent past general elections.
Since the 1970s, four of six candidates who went on to win the White House failed to win contested caucuses: Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. Only Bush 2 and Obama came off smelling rosy.
The same % of voters who would never vote for a black man or anyone who is against building a border wall like the one in Israel.
LOL! Only if they are inanimate objects like a jar of almonds. Unfortunately, they are wing nuts brought to you by the rise of the evangelical fanatics, those who would tell anyone who does not worship in a church of their own denomination is bound for eternal suffering in hell.
You are right ... crushed vs yesterday. Even HPQ is not crushed when compared to its 2001 low of under $11.
Here is another standout around 12 miles from Apple:

Coming from a colorful demigod aging comedian, I don't care what he said. Like the sayings go "Kids say the darnest things !" Give the guy a break.
Infosys up 10.8% on results/guidance; CTSH, WIT also higher
Infosys (NYSE:INFY) is at its highest levels since April after beating FQ1 revenue estimates (while posting in-line EPS) and guiding for FY16 (ends March '16) revenue growth of 7.2%-9.2% (above a 6.5% consensus).
Also going over well: Client adds rose to 79 from 61 a year ago, and the utilization rate rose 160 bps to 80.2%.
An 11% Y/Y increase in operating expenses to $281M pressured EPS, as did a 50 bps Y/Y drop in gross margin to 36.4%. Infosys ended FQ1 with $4.75B in cash/investments, and no debt.
IT outsourcing peers Cognizant (CTSH +2%) and Wipro (WIT +2.8%) are also higher. Wipro reports on July 23, and Cognizant on August 5.
these days remind me of a quote by Charles Bukowski:
I’d lost my kick. Existence was not only absurd, it was plain hard work. Think of how many times you put on your underwear in a lifetime. It was appalling, it was disgusting, it was stupid.
Trump should not made his case against McCain without knowing the circumstances around his capture and if he did all he could to resist Vietcong brainwashing.
With that said, Trump's premise that the fact when a soldier was captured does not mean that he/she should be automatically labeled a hero. Ditto with a cop who was killed on duty be celebrated as a hero etc.

The no-good Obama should have saw the danger when he was in Hawaii way back when.
Keep that up and Rusty Limpball will jam your receivers to his talk show.

You have not seen these low numbers since the go-go Clinton 2nd term and all the way back in the 60's and early 70's. Something about demographic change that few have given it credit for labor rate participation then and now?
