Caputh it is the new greed, if my money is doing better then I am willing to sacrafice children at the border, abandon my allies, help Russia become a world power again (even if for evil), kick kids off life saving medicines (actually a death sentence), let people languish in disaster zones, starve out farmers, then try to save them by paying them off with funds not allocated, stop the EPA thus causing more violations to ground water nation wide (remember Flint MI), allow false weather warnings causing panic, take money from the military that was allocated for Service members family's and use it to build an unneeded fence, go back on treatise that were working with no new plan in place, threaten to take peoples land if they will not willingly allow unneeded fence to be built, take money from foreign countries and help them in return, take help from foreign countries and help them...this list could go on but thank god my 401k is doing good even though the average Joe is working 2 or 3 jobs.... :idea:


This post totally proves you are a complete nut job.

All I wanna be able to do is retire early and take care of my family. I’ve worked my ass off for the last 30+ years to get what I have. No one handed me anything.

You took a simple example of a person doing well to a level of insanity. Get help.



I'm on the same financial journey and very fortunate for it, but I would be willing to sacrifice some return on my investments for a objectively moral Leader... :idea:

None has noticed that this 401k post contains a Sharpie drawing ?
:smoke:

Won't put my faith in a Sharpie designed post.
:P
And some did better than 14% but you won't hear them brag about it.
Anyway, money is not the only thing valuable in life.
For decent people, there's a lot of things more important.

LAZY COWARD !

You still have to prove that 99% of what I said about Trump is false or exaggerated.
And you can't ?
Too lazy to prove your points ?
Or, as I think, you know I'm right but you certainly won't lose your face here and admit it.
So, until you prove me wrong, I'm right !

That's how it works, stupid !

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrong on several counts about unemployment
By Louis Jacobson on Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 at 3:33 p.m.



Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist and former organizer for Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign, attracted national attention after her upset primary victory over Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in a Queens- and Bronx-based district. But critics pounced on some of her remarks during an interview on the PBS show Firing Line with Margaret Hoover.

During the interview, Ocasio-Cortez said, "Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family." (It’s at about 5:45 in this video.)

This comment drew criticism from a number of right-leaning outlets, including the National Review, Hot Air, TownHall.com and Reason.

In our review, we found many reasons why unemployment is low, and not for the overwork that Ocasio-Cortez cited. The biggest factors include strong economic confidence and the long-running economic recovery. (Her campaign did not respond to an inquiry.)

"Everyone has two jobs"
The Bureau of Labor Statistics keeps track of how many people work two jobs rather than just one.

Over the past 12 months, the number of multiple job holders has ranged between 6 million and 7 million. That compares to more than 148 million Americans who are employed in a single job.


So by the official statistics, multiple job holders account for a tiny fraction of American workers.

And this percentage isn’t high by historical standards.


The percentage has moved in a pretty narrow band — 4.7 percent to 5.2 percent — during the recovery from the Great Recession. That range is actually below where it was between 1994 and the Great Recession. In fact, the percentage was at its highest (as high as 6.5 percent) during the peak of the 1990s boom.

"People are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week"

The Perfect Key Lime Pie Does Exist: Here’s Where to Get It
By Allegiant Air
This assertion is equally dubious.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics breaks down its count of people with multiple jobs into three categories: people working one full-time job and one part-time job; people with two part-time jobs; and people working two full-time jobs.

A worker with two full-time jobs is the smallest category of the three.


Since the entire pie chart is equivalent to the small red column in the previous graph, the people who might be working 70 or 80 hours a week amount to a tiny percentage of a tiny percentage — 310,000 people at most in a pool of employed Americans totaling more than 150 million.

It’s also worth noting that on average, Americans aren’t working more today than they have been in the recent past. The average number of hours worked in the private sector has hugged tightly to about 34.5 hours a week since 2006, except for a dip during the Great Recession.


So why is unemployment low?
When the BLS determines the unemployment rate, a person is counted as employed as long as they have at least one job. They don’t get counted twice if they have two jobs. So Ocasio-Cortez is wrong in saying multiple job holding and long hours affect the unemployment rate.

It’s worth remembering that both of the factors Ocasio-Cortez cited — people working multiple jobs and long hours — are actually good things for the labor market, said Gary Burtless, an economist with the Brookings Institution.

"Increases in the number of multiple job holders and longer average work hours almost always accompany a strengthening labor market — that is, a job market in which it is easier to find work, in which spells of unemployment are heading downwards, and in which the ranks of the unemployed are shrinking," Burtless said.

Our ruling
Ocasio-Cortez said, "Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family."

Even taking into account rhetorical excess, her statement is off in multiple ways. Fewer than one in 20 employed Americans holds a second job of any type, and the people who might be working as much as 70 or 80 hours a week represent a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction. The rates for either statistic are not high by historical standards.

In any case, the BLS does not use either of those factors in determining the official unemployment rate.

We rate the statement Pants on Fire.

Oh, you poor helpless thing.
This is why it's not so much fun to play with you anymore.
First of all you use facts like weapons,
and yet, you bring the wrong weapons to the game.
Because if *I* use the same 'weapon' of facts
and point it back at your 'side'...
it quickly becomes clear, you should never have used those as weapons!

Go ahead, compare the AOC file where the falsies all came BEFORE she actually became a Congresswoman
https://www.politifact.com/personalities/alexandria-ocasio-cortez/statements/by/

with say, just the highest-ranked R-Rep in Congress - the minority party leader, and his are all since he's been in Congress. He has SO MUCH experience!
Eight years ago
https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2011/jan/05/kevin-mccarthy/kevin-mccarthy-says-111th-congress-spent-more-mone/

or, this June
https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/03/kevin-mccarthy/kevin-mccarthy-falsely-says-justin-amash-votes-mor/

not fair?
how about statements ABOUT these Congresscritters? Betcha all that ain't true either:
https://www.politifact.com/personalities/alexandria-ocasio-cortez/statements/about/
https://www.politifact.com/personalities/kevin-mccarthy/statements/about/

But still I bet you don't want to talk about how that's apples and oranges, do ya?

What if we compared the statements of a citizen running for office with those of the office holder at 1600 Pennsylvania using that politifact gizmo?


You know who...




welp! the gizmo just went all ka-blooie on you!

I'm sure you're gettin sleepy now.
Nighty-night, Pete.

We're all really impressed.

I just see "a nob".

BTW If you haven't worked out what your own forum name (at least your third one) actually means, then nobody can - except for another nob.


To be fair, I think the other guy’s nob (or perhaps more accurately “other guys nobs”) was the inspiration for his current forum name. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Isn’t it funny how all these right wing homophobic nuts are always the ones that turn out to be gay in the end.
