    Oh Horseshit.

    First Good producing is climbing very nicely.

    We see all these young people who wasted the best years of their lives, wasted, running up all this college debt and now they are working at Starbucks.

    Meanwhile a good strong man in his early 20's who can speak intelligently to a customer, can go to work as a plumber, his employer will train him for free and give him his first set of tools and a company vehicle to work and commute in and he will be knocking down $85,000/yr his first year, over $100,000/yr thereafter, no college debt, and employers are so desperate for workers that they are giving signing bonuses.

    We need more college graduates with liberal arts degrees like we need a hole in the head.

    I have worked as an engineer since 1976. The kids who get into engineering today, get a big debt, and they no longer teach them the skills to do real engineering. You get them in and they don't know shitt after 4 years. They lack critical skills in law, logic and skills to go with it. On the job, they use short cuts because nobody told them you cannot do that, and then there are the government regulators who have no idea about engineering making construction policy. That is why our bridges and infrastructure are failing. I could tell you so many stories I have personally watched...….
    Next time you go over a bridge, stop and take a shitt before you do, because you should be scared shittless of being on some of the bridges.

    More blindness from the Rabid Right. You haven't the faintest idea of the real Income Distribution in America today. Open your eyes to the facts here: Percentage distribution of household income in the United States in 2017

    Note that 40% of American families are earning less than $50K a year! (Given that the average household salary is around $59K.)

    Your are obviously a member of the "greater than $100K-class" who have no idea whatsoever of how the other half of the American population lives today ...

    Nope, people need skills, not a degree in lesbian dance studies and a lifetime of student debt.

    And where do you get skills?

    I'll bet you think out of a Kellogg's box.

    You have no understanding whatsoever of what has happened since the 1990s, the advent of the Internet, and the coming of the Information Age.

    Because you are still stuck in the Industrial Age.

    Poor you ...

    Obama built the recovery from the GOP Great Recession, not Trump.

    The radical right does not have a clue about any of this, but as their Senators and Reps start losing this election and in the future, they will still refuse to understand.

    It depends upon to which particular skill you are referring. Do you have one particular in mind?

    Obama built the worst recovery in the post war era making him the worst economic President in the history of the United States. Basically, Obama was a steaming pile of donkey crap.

    Trump is kicking ass and Obama is trying to latch onto his coattails.

    That's fake news, Bucky. Obama built the recovery from the worst economic turn down (caused by the GOP) since the Great Depression (caused by the GOP). Obama was super, and it is Trump that's donkey crap.

    Trump is latching onto Obama's coat tails. We will be in a hard recession no later than early spring 2020.

    Prove it!

    Here is the underlying substantiation (from the Bureau of Labor Statistics) of my statement: Measuring the value of education

    Now scroll down to the chart labelled: Median Weekly Earnings and Unemployment Rate by Educational Attainment 2017

    'Nuff shown? (I doubt it ...)

    Yup, Obama gets the big credit considering what Bush and the GOP did to wreck the economy.
