Dow hits historic 17,000 high as
U.S. jobs numbers skyrocket

Boston Herald, by Jordan Graham

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 11:21:04 AM

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

288,000 ain´t stunning. It´s level-pegging with the increase in population.

What would be stunning would be an increase in proportion of adults who actually work.

They are really deluding themselves. I heard today on Fox that the real rate is a little over 12%.I believe a crash is coming.

I keep hearing about all of the "new jobs" being created. I know a lot of unemployed people who are on active search for a meaningful job. None of them are finding anything that doesn´t require using a mop and broom.

I realize that this is the new normal under the traitorous communist infiltrates in the White House but ask yourself, "Do I know anyone who has gotten a real job in the past year?"

If they told what was really in the jobs report you´d feel sick. We lost 500,000 full time jobs last month. Lost 500,000. We gained 780,000 part time jobs. The biggest increase in part time jobs in more than 20 years. How is this a good jobs report? I´m sure when the final numbers are crunched it will turn out there were fewer total hours worked last month. The number of people not in the workforce rose to another record. We´re becoming a part time, low wage economy and that´s not good.

Are these jobs the ones that the kids pick up when school gets out....in JUNE?

Towns and villages in our area hire large numbers of young people for Life Guards, camp counselors, Summer grass cutting and maintenance.

Companies that have seasonal work may hire house painters, lawn care helpers, and short term help at stores and fast food places to cover vacations etc.

Jobs? Yes...technically, but NOT the kind that will turn this Titanic around before we hit the big iceberg.

Is anyone really that stupid to believe these numbers? The stock market is high because we are printing 75 Billion Dollars a month, and unemployment is way over 10% if you count all the people who have given up looking for jobs, as there are NO jobs for many of our Americans, due to 0bama´s bad policies.

All markets and numbers are now manipulated by American and foreign governments which cannot allow fiscal reality (unimaginable debt, money created out of thin air, and worthless currencies) to be seen without the rose-colored glasses that they seek to impose. The economy has been blah for 6 years but the markets are soaring? Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, and hold onto your wallet ... ya think, like the citizens of Cyprus, that your money is safe even in your bank? Take those glasses OFF.

12.6% are not working. Wow.
The only way to get 6.1% is dropping a lot of folk off the rolls.

It´s VERY simple: Wall Street knows we´re in a period of high inflation, which will soon morph into hyper inflation. The rising ´DOW´ numbers is an indication of investors hedging against that inflation: the job numbers have absolutely NOTHING to do with the rise.

#20 is right. There are areas around the country where things are going great. In Texas, it´s mostly related to the oil patch. Hotels can´t get maintenance people, restaurants can´t get service help, apartments and rental houses are scarce and pricey. I have a nephew who drives a hazardous materials truck (special license) and fends off pirate headhunters several times a week. But if an unemployed person isn´t in those hot areas, life is much harder, obviously. I have a cousin in the Detroit area, working three part-time jobs after losing his auto industry executive position. His family is unable to move somewhere else because there is no market for their nice, middle-class home.

Forget designer gowns, fancy ice sculptures or artisanally crafted favors — the biggest status symbol in all of wedding-dom has to be having the commander-in-chief as a guest at one’s nuptials. President Obama and his family aren’t exactly regulars on the rice-and-cake circuit — and in case you hadn’t heard, there are a few pressing issues around the globe that also might be taking up their time — so the family’s attendance at the New York wedding of chef Sam Kass and MSNBC host Alex Wagner on Saturday night is a capital-B Big Deal.

FERGUSON, Mo. — Activists on Saturday called for mass civil disobedience on the highways in and around this St. Louis suburb to protest the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer, with the leaders of one coalition encouraging supporters to stop their cars to tie up traffic on Labor Day. The announcement came at a peaceful if at times tense march and rally on Saturday that drew more than 1,000 demonstrators to some of the same Ferguson streets where the police clashed with protesters in the days after the killing of Michael Brown.

To live in Tehran, writes British-Iranian journalist Ramita Navai in this collection of true stories, requires one essential skill: lying. “Morals don’t come into it,” Navai writes. “Lying in Tehran is about survival . . . when the truth is shared in Tehran, it is an act of extreme trust or absolute desperation.” “City of Lies” features eight sprawling tales (all names have been changed, as have certain details, and several characters are composites). Each focuses on an individual, but Navai uses these personal stories to observe how people live, love and survive in a society ruled by fundamentalists. Iranian youth

A Friday afternoon dispatch at the Politico from Carrie Budoff Brown and Jennifer Epstein tells us that "The White House is putting the finishing touches on a post-Labor Day schedule that will send the president to states where he’s still popular." The list of states where the Politico pair alleges that´s the case is quite short: "Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California." That´s it. Obama, in a situation resembling that of Richard Nixon in the final months of his presidency, when "Tricky Dick" was mocked for being able to find friendly audiences in just a few Southern states, is apparently

The childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is for sale in Manhattan at $44 million. The recently renovated 1929 duplex retains its traditional architecture but has been updated with modern finishes and a contemporary look. The 17-story Art Deco building was designed by architects Arthur Loomis Harmon and Rosario Candela, who made a name for himself designing apartments in New York City in the 1920s. Candela’s name is often associated with luxury buildings and coveted addresses. Onassis’ grandfather, James T. Lee, was the builder.

"If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month," he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

Even the most ardent immigrant rights advocates are saying it: Reform legislation is dead this year — and for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, all eyes have shifted to the White House, where President Obama is weighing unilateral changes to his immigration policies in the face of congressional inaction. In March, the president asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its approach to deportations in search of blanket ways to conduct them "more humanely." With the results of that review – and Obama´s subsequent policy response – expected next month, both sides of the immigration debate are

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.
