In Hard Economy for All Ages,
Older Isn’t Better ... It’s Brutal

New York Times, by Catherine Rampell

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/2/2013 5:46:01 PM

Young graduates are in debt, out of work and on their parents’ couches. People in their 30s and 40s can’t afford to buy homes or have children. Retirees are earning near-zero interest on their savings. In the current listless economy, every generation has a claim to having been most injured. But the Labor Department’s latest jobs snapshot and other recent data reports present a strong case for crowning baby boomers as the greatest victims of the recession and its grim aftermath. These Americans in their 50s and early 60s — those near retirement age who do not yet

I was particularly amused by the sentence from the NY Times article - "Their retirement savings and home values fell sharply at the worst possible time: just before they needed to cash out."

Guess it beats saying, "Their retirement AND home values were wiped out by a liberal president who demanded banks loan money to people who clearly couldn´t pay it back - thus driving home prices artificially thru the roof and taking most of the rest of the economy down with ´em when government policy failed utterly. Again."

Whew. That calls for a drink. Mebbe an Ethanol and tonic?

They wanted to be in charge because everything we did was wrong and had to be changed.

Yeah,..between the low info college degrees of the past 40 years, and television, there isn´t much left of "intellectual" America. Don´t get me wrong...there are plenty of people who think they are intellectual. I don´t count myself as intelligentsia, but I get the impression from a lot of people they think they are brilliant, and they walked right out there and voted for Obama.

The "educated" lofos are proudly innumerate, devoid of intellectual curiosity and still trying to get revenge against their parents for something that happened 40 or 50 years ago. All you need to do is say it´s the Republicans´ fault and they will look no further.

Still recall he 2008 experience of driving past what were then $3 to $4 million mega-mansions in the upscale towns of Westport and Weston, CT. The more pretentious the home, the more likely there was an Obama sign calling for Hope & Change. My wife & I were confused as to what the owners of these enormous houses wanted to change. They didn´t send their children into the military. They really didn´t want "them" living nearby, and with their 2 to 4 acre lots, couldn´t see them anyway. They all vacationed in the best places, drove European cars and seemingly enjoyed the life most aspired to achieve.

Yet, these wealthy suburbanites wanted an obscure, inexperienced, 1/2 term senator to fundamentally transform the country. Why? And, why are they so willing to support the more womanly version of Obama with Hillary?

The real estate meltdown - the source of the Great Recession was pre-Obama. It was, to use a snarky over-used phrase, Bush´s fault. He let in the 10 million of so illegals, that helped drive up demand for housing. In 2002, he pushed banks, FNMA, etc to lend to minorities at zero down. Yes, the Dems loved this stuff, and under Clinton and Reuben, the financial sector was relieved of all those fuddy-duddy Depression-era reforms (Glass–Steagall Act, etc.), that allowed banks to behave so badly - but it was (examine the timing) Bush´s Compassionate Conservatism (aka as Country-Club Conservatism) that did us in.

What Obama has mainly done wrong since is (1) regulate our economy into a permanent slump. (2) reward dependency by encouraging the expansion of government entitlements.

Folks here are wise but have not looked back far enough. This economic mess started with the Community Reinvestment Act in the 1990´s
wherein Government mandated ( submit or be penalized ) mortgage lenders to "give" homes to people that were bad risks for repayment in hopes they would become part of the American Dream. It snowballed from there with the Government, Congress, Rating Agencies, Quasi-Government Agencies, lenders, and foolish buyers all taking a part in the debacle. All had a hand in creating the problem but the Government was the initial and primary culprit. Its all laid on in historical sequence in various internet articles.

Dodd/Frank´s mortgage fiasco and Rep. Al Swift´s, ´Motor Voter,´ legislation, together are hurting America the Beautiful immeasurably abd increasingly. Pres.

The article does not say anything about those part time jobs that older Americans are working now will be going to immigrants or that their chances of getting a job is less if they are not bilingual.

You must put those Tootsie Rolls in the bowl for Zippy to hand them out to everyone.

Trader Joe’s, the privately held retail grocery chain, has cancelled plans to open a store in a poor neighborhood in the northeastern section of Portland, Ore., following “negative reactions” from the local community.

ADP´s January National Employment Report is out. The payroll-processing firm estimates 175,000 workers were hired by private-sector firms in January. Market economists were looking for a 185,000 estimate. The December estimate from ADP´s previous report was revised down to 227,000 from 238,000. Below is a summary of the data from the release: Goods-producing employment rose by 16,000 jobs in January, down from a downwardly-revised figure of 50,000 in December. Nearly all of the growth came from the construction industry which added 25,000 jobs over the month; this followed increases of 30,000 and 32,000 in the prior two months. Manufacturing lost

NEW YORK — What Super Bowl ads will people discuss over the water cooler a day after the big game? There were no crude jokes. Sexual innuendo was kept to a minimum. And uncomfortable scenes were missing. In short, there wasn´t much shock value. Sure, RadioShack poked fun at its image by starring 80s icons like Teen Wolf in its ad. And Coca-Cola struck an emotional chord by showcasing people of different diversities in its spot. As did Chrysler, with its "Made in America" message. But with a 30-second Super Bowl commercial fetching $4 million and more than 108 million

Automakers reported on Monday sharp declines in United States sales in January as a harsh freeze and winter storms thwarted purchases across much of the country. General Motors, the country’s largest carmaker, said sales fell 12 percent last month to 171,486 vehicles, while its crosstown rival, Ford Motor, reported a 7 percent decline, selling 154,644 vehicles. The Chrysler Group, the smallest of Detroit’s automakers, fared better, reporting growth of 8 percent to 127,183 vehicles for its best January sales performance in six years. It was the 46th month of consecutive sales gains for the automaker, whose acquisition by Fiat was

Book thieves checked out but never returned 70,144 books from Brooklyn Public Library’s 60 cash-strapped branches in 2012, records show. GED prep guides, nursing and other professional exam cliff notes were high on the list of frequently filched books — but so too were graphic novels, library officials said. “Those are always going missing,” a librarian at the Brooklyn Heights branch told the Daily News Thursday. (Snip) Despite the thefts, library officials have kept the shelves full — in 2012, the system bought 419,790 new print books and 18,323 new e-books. But the overall catalogue continues to shrink.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing.

The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, became law almost four years ago. It became operational last Oct. 1. Yesterday, Feb. 4, 2014, the ACA may well have been dealt its death blow. The Congressional Budget Office released a major study of the government’s budget and its effect on the overall economy over the next 10 years. In dull bureaucratic language, it delivers a devastating analysis of the inefficiencies, ineffectualities and problematic social costs of ObamaCare. The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes.
