FRIDAY THOUGHTS

The circuses are over and we can go back to a more normal life watching reality shows and sports on TV. Of course we will now have TWO MONTHS of intensive rhetoric prior to the election.

There are just two groups of voters in the USA; those who have already been indoctrinated and those who are undecided.

The first group members no matter what will never change their vote.

The other group of those who have not decided some will read and listen to all the "crap0" that will be thrown at them and make a decision on election day. The rest will either toss a coin, vote not for but against someone, or just stay at home and complain for the next four years.

Next week my house will be company free and I will no longer have an excuse not to post. I am sure that for the next 8 weeks most will be political in nature both locally and nationally. Later today or tomorrow I shall comment on Biden's and the President's speeches.

All commentators have agreed that today's job reports may be crucial; this is a flash from the NY Times: Breaking News Alert

U.S. Added 96,000 Jobs in August; Unemployment Rate Fell to 8.1%

The economy added 96,000 jobs in August, well below expectations, adding pressure on Federal Reserve policy makers, who have hinted they will act to stimulate the economy when they meet next week.

However, the jobless rate fell to 8.1 percent, from 8.3 percent in July, an indication that more unemployed workers were discouraged about the propsects of finding new jobs.

  1. Maybe we need more outsourcing and tax breaks. Nah! It hasn't worked before and probably won't work now.
