More on same from CNN:

The U.S. says the economy added no jobs in August, the worst number since September 2010. The jobless rate was unchanged at 9.1%.

While the number was partially distorted by a one-time quirk from more than 40,000 striking Verizon workers, it was still weak in comparison to job gains of about 200,000 a month earlier this year.

Economists typically estimate the nation needs to add about 150,000 jobs each month to keep up with population growth alone. It needs even stronger growth to recover the millions of jobs lost during the financial crisis.

It's not a quote. I actually used my brain and said that for myself. I guess I could have found a trucker video that supported my view but I chose free thought. Sorry you can't recognize it.

You'll notice the quote box is NOT attributed to YOU.

The economic package that President Barack Obama will lay out tonight will total more than $400 billion, a Democrat familiar with the plan told CNN.



Americans who are currently getting a payroll tax cut could see an even bigger cut, according to the source.

from CNN breaking news mailing:

Stocks plunged at the week's end as bad news from Europe just kept piling up.



The Dow sank 303 points, or 2.7%, to finish below 11,000. The Nasdaq and S&P 500 each fell more than 2.4%.



A shakeup at the European Central Bank sparked an early selloff, which gained momentum as worries grew about a possible Greek debt default.



Both the Dow and S&P 500 have now posted declines for six of the past seven weeks.

President Obama to Seek Higher Tax Rate on Millionaires



President Obama on Monday will call for a new minimum tax rate for individuals making more than $1 million a year to ensure that they pay at least the same percentage of their earnings as middle-income taxpayers, administration officials said.



With a special joint Congressional committee starting work to reach a bipartisan budget deal, the proposal adds a populist feature to Mr. Obama’s effort to raise the political pressure on Republicans to agree to higher revenues from the wealthy in return for Democrats’ support of future savings from Medicare and Medicaid.



Mr. Obama, in a bit of political salesmanship, will call his proposal the Buffett Rule, in a reference to Warren E. Buffett, the billionaire investor who has complained that the richest Americans generally pay a smaller share of their income in federal taxes than do middle-income workers, because investment gains are taxed at a lower rate.

Obama to propose 'Buffett Tax'

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama, in a populist step designed to appeal to voters, will propose a “Buffett Tax” on people making more than $1 million a year as part of his deficit recommendations to Congress on Monday. Such a proposal, among suggestions to a congressional supercommittee expected to seek up to $3 trillion in deficit savings over 10 years, would appeal to his Democratic base ahead of the 2012 election but may not raise much in revenues.

Not to make excuses for Obama he can speak for himself, but so many people are missing
the big picture. The United States began its decline when Reagan started deregulation and
it has got worse. The trade deals that destabilized the industrial base of the country was
another factor. America is a leader in consumer buying, and not industrial output to match
it. The problems were created not by Obama, but by George Bush and before that Bill Clinton.
Trade deals were not done with any measure of conditions or restrictions and Multi and Trans
National Corporation took advantage of the situation. These companies are loyal to no one
only their profit margin there is no such thing as doing the right thing. That is just the beginning.
Before Obama you had the major financial companies behaving so badly they should have
been prosecuted in criminal courts. They not only destabilized the industrial complex they took
out the financial stability of the nation itself for nothing more than their own greed.

Couple this with Europe on the brink, by adopting the same irresponsible financial procedures
as America and before that Japan. There is another country that mismanaged their economy
right into a major permanent down turn. If Europe falters it will take out some of the financial
institutions in America as well.

Don't even think about Asia being financially healthy, they are in trouble in China its a creeping
disaster that has been under the radar until recently, There is a major housing crisis coming
that will make history around the world. There are over 64 million apartments vacant in China
and shopping centers with no stores in them. In fact, China has built a number of cities
capable of accommodating over a million people, but no one lives there. It should also be noted
China built these cities on prime farmland.

Add all these things into the backdrop of individual debt in North America that has never been
seen before. Obama has not helped himself but the problem is much bigger than one man
or country and all of this reflects directly on the Economy that is shrinking faster than anyone
can print more money to save it inflated dollars.

Very valid points. So what is the process necessary to take steps towards corrective measures??

There are no corrective measures. The world economy is being dismantled to be replaced by a one world currency. This is an engineered demolition. Everything is going to plan. For the little guy there will be pain but the rich don't care about you. As George Carlin says "They own you!"

...That is likely quite true. So , who is behind this enterprise and how long is it going to take before all the pieces are in place for the orchestrators of this economic design to make it effective???

I believe the plan is to make people suffer until they beg for salvation. Those responsible are not going to show their faces until they are ready but you can bet that people like the Rockefellers are the front men.

It is still nice. and yes, it does look like a young man on an adventure ......an exploration.

So.......the bottom line is the same old story. Power, control, psychological domination, .....and not much has changed as far as the evolution of the humanoid .........except he is perfecting his aggression in the areas of greed, selfishness and wanting to be more important ;more special and richer than the next guy.

LOL.........indeed. One could question just how sophisticated we really are. It sure don't take much for us to turn into barbarism. should the right mix of events occur. (the ones with the g-complex are usually very rich and feel entitled to such vast powers. OR those with nothing except their beliefs and have nothing left to lose.

And just how do you expect to get the sheeple away from their TVs? There is a definite plan to dumb down the populace and TV is the main medium. A kull of the human population is in the works and the sheeple will be the sacrificial lambs (pun intended).
