has anyone not noted that gov't spending without fail until the Clinton years was pretty much linear. Also note that the Bush years saw that line reestablished and increased. The big problem people have is with the number $3 Trillion. If you understand that the number really is the same as it always was but the Fed is working with a much smaller work force than ever. The number of federal employees per citizen is also at an all time low. People seem to forget that there are 300+ million people living in the US right now. To assume fewer and fewer people will be able to keep up with an ever increasing population is just plain ignorant

that last one is pretty impressive. It shows that the Fed is not spending as fast as the GDP is growing. In effect the gov't is shrinking and we as a people are getting shortchanged by someone that doesnt like paying taxes

I think they are considered disastrous because of the nature of the cuts and not the amount.

The graph on US LABOR FORCE PARTICIPATION RATE is a "Gee Whiz" Graph. Which is dishonest as we teach in our Statistics classes. Start the graph from zero and those whom are ignorant will get a different visual impression from the one presented here.

It also doesn't show how much is due to retirement of baby boomers. They are going to skew any data.

The misery index has been removed.

Does not take into account the number of people who have given up on looking for work. Or the number underemployed.

The market is up due to the feds Q-E's one, two, and three. It's a shell game and the tax payer will lose.

Yeah, this guy is sooooooooo great.
Wants the American people to feel the burn by shutting down visits to the White House. But has no qualms about the taxpayers funding a 1 Million dollar golf outing with Tiger Woods. Not to mention the staggering amounts for the First Family continuing about their merry ways.

How disconnected from reality is our Dictator in Chief?

Life as usual for the Washington party crew.

But hey, fellow Americans, the sequester is really gonna hurt........my arse.

OURS, not his.

It wouldn't actually be such a bad thing if those in Washington were forced to cut back as well.

Just let the private sector feel the burn, life as usual for those in power.

Im a boomer. I will most likely have to work till I die. The cost of everyting keeps going up. I got a .40 cent raise the last week in December. In January the SS tax went up. So much for the raise, I now earn less money every week.

I can retire in 6 years. I can only guess at how much prices will go up by then.

So much for the promise of retirement.

Public Service Announcement: if you are on an airplane with me while I am traveling with my well-behaved children, and you decide to recline your seat in front of us, I will not correct my children from kicking or pulling on your seat. I also cannot promise that I won't turn my air on high and point it on your bald head for the remainder of the flight. Thank you and have a nice flight.


When I was consulting and flying every week I quickly learned that business travelers are far more of a pain if the ... to share a plane with than children. I'll take a screaming baby over a ...... with a briefcase and sense of entitlement ALL DAY long.


Love it.
Yeah, most people can smell the real bacon-loving entitlement grubbers.
