I hate that I really don't understand this shit. So 98,000 Americans who had no job now have a job that didn't exist before and this is bad????


98,000 sucks
Its a huge massive economy
98,000 is a shrinking economy
not good
At least 150,00 or more a month is needed for an expanding economy

Feb 219,000
Jan 238,000
Dec 155,000
Nov 204,000
Oct 135,000
Sep 208,000
Aug 167,000
Jul 275,000
Jun 292,000

I'd imagine there would be many more than 98,000 added to the workforce (people actively seeking employment + those employed) each month. The breakeven point for unemployment to remain stable would be much higher.

Trump better get another judge lined up.
How many times has this happened to
Granny Ginsberg in the last year.

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg erroneously labeled South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the ‘women of the Senate’ on Monday."

Special election in Kansas today. In a district Donald won by +27.

Saw this on Twitter. Here is how to look at the margin tonight:

KS-04 results:
Rep >30: Good for Rs
20-30: Normal given Ds out party
10-20: Good for Ds, Trump a factor
0-10: Amazing! brownback killing Rs
Dem Win: !!!!

I didn't know Obama was a stand up comic.
Saw 60 sec of his presser just 4 months
ago, early Dec, saying the world is a safer
place because his diplomacy got rid of
all the weaponized gas in Syria. He went
on to pat himself on the back at how
great diplomacy is, especially his diplomacy.

You just know the leaders of the countries
he was dealing with were laughing
behind his back at what a tool he is, a
naive fool.

You saw it on Twitter? Twitter now tells you how to look at political races? Or did someone with some actual clue what they were saying post it on Twitter? Huge difference between some random poster and someone with some experience and insight. Hell, I can post anything I want on Twitter and it will mean just as much as if you post anything you want on Twitter!! Just attributing stuff to "Twitter" is pretty worthless...just like my opinion below...

KS-04 Results:
Republican wins.
Margin narrower than Trump's margin.

KS-04 Opinion:
Dems still have work to do to take back the House.
Trump and Republican discord could lose the House.

So...we learned nothing we didn't already know from this election. The seat does not change hands and most people, even those with insight, would pretty much say something similar to the opinions that I offered...

I don't know if she should resign for a misstatement...that standard would get just about everyone in government.

She should pay better attention to who the heck she is talking about. I know there are a lot of genders out there to choose from and everyone is free to choose one for themselves; I don't know of Graham declaring himself a woman yet..

As much as the Trumpsters try to pretend Donald's historic unpopularity is meaningless, I think we are discovering the opposite is true...

His unpopularity is certainly not "meaningless" and I don't see how anyone can say that it is with a straight face.

It does mean less now than it will come next summer when the House and Senate races are in full swing.

The clock is ticking but time is not running out.

No one should count seats until they are sitting in them. Look what happened to the seat the Democrats counted last November...that should be a lesson for all!
