Obama says stimulus bill saved U.S. economy

Obama says... is that like Simon says? Even if this were true, Only 2 million jobs for 787 billion? Wow, what a deal!!! Why not just hand the cash out to keep people in their homes?

What are the interest payments on the federal debt for those "jobs" in the next decade? Will banks loan you money based on those "jobs" to buy a home? Please don't call them jobs... its just a high priced tax and spend work program; a cynical pandering attempt to be reelected as Commander in Thief in 3 more years.

Fast fashion? That's called a thrift shop in America.

Welcome Japan! Welcome to what American have had to put up with for two decades now, the McWalmartization of your economy, where your jobs are outsourced to China and everything you could ever hope for can be had between a bun or sold in a 100 yen shop, if you can still afford that.

Athens’ decades-old failure to make its sluggish economy more competitive

The Europe union alliance is an ill conceived notion of mutual interest and continental communism, where the stronger members are obligated to carry the burden of the weaker. But, economics is all about beating the competition, not bailing them out. A hoge-poge of European alliances were the cause of WW1, where an attack on one member caused a pile on chain reaction. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and as Greece slides into bankruptcy, so goes the alliance and the euro. Spreading the misery around equally is what brought the Soviet Union down. Europeans and their quant notions of social justice do not an economy make.

By 2015, if the jobs even come back, there will be no middle class left, only the rich, the poor and those with govt jobs. "Under assault'" implies that there is an enemy. The federal reserve would be a good place to start looking.

Posted in: Obama hits Wall Street; pushes for bank size limits See in context

The US govt loans banks free money, the banks then lend it back to the govt at 3% interest. What a cozy deal, with no money left even to lend to the "consumer"! Why lend $ to Joe-Jobless-Credit-Debtor, when the US govt will pay guaranteed money?

Who then, ultimately pays the bill for this? Answer; The over taxed American slaves who fund the whole freakin system! While I don't agree with Obama's populist bank bashing; (can anyone say double-dip crash of 2010? ) why the hell should banks get such preferential treatment?

Girl power yes, the clothing, not practical. Most women wear drab non-cute coveralls and a big hat/bug net to keep from sun burning. The hair needs to be tied up/cut and you had better not have any loose clothing either. There are too many machines/belts on a farm that pose a hazard to life and limb. But if this cute packaging gets people interested in farming, that's bery-goo.

How hard could farming be?

Pretty hard without the women folk. They do most of the work based on my observations in Hokkaido for five years. This might be be all you need to turn the country around. I think its GREAT! I would work with these gals anyday.

bicultural has it right.
