No, there is no jump starting the economy. That's something that's tossed out there, but there is no way to make private businesses do anything except taxes, and we already have two thirds of American companies paying no taxes at all, seems that method had already been tried. Help with EzAssignment writing service And the small and medium businesses are the ones who benefit if we encourage fairness, its very difficult for a small and medium business to compete with the big guys, if you've ever had a business you'd know that.

Can somebody running the website install a feature that will stop the Bots? It's not rocket science.

Take 3 guesses on which labor stats are being reported on MSM. From http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/153000000-americans-employed-march-setting-2nd-straight-record:

The number of employed Americans increased 472,000 to 153,000,000 in March, setting a second straight monthly record; and the number of unemployed persons dropped by 326,000 to 7.2 million.

That brought the nation’s unemployment rate down two-tenths of a point to 4.5 percent.

The Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said the labor force participation rate remained flat at 63 percent in March; and the number of Americans not in the labor force increased slightly to 94,213,000, up 23,000 from February’s 94,190,000.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the economy added 98,000 jobs last month, which was well below the gains of 219,000 in February and 216,000 in January. Employment increased in professional and business services – and in mining – but retailers lost jobs.

yep.  Not to mention the seasonal adjustability of retail jobs.  

We need to continue to pound away at our manufacturing jobs. From the government policy perspective top down to the companies, and from the bottom up ala Mike Roe and "trades are great".  Long term invested skills are always much more employable than just having jobs.  We need to get back to building things.  Building buildings, building roads, building cities, building opportunities for the lower class.  

ohbummer tried to invent a culture based on taking.  

The true revolution is to get those most attracted to that culture of take, and get them to understand the benefits of building something.

Retail job losses are largely the flip side of gains by e-commerce (e.g. Amazon).

U6 remains on a nice downslope.  Hitting 8.90 right now. 

We need to be a bit careful that we don't overheat this thing.  Interest rates remain low.  Luckily anytime the economy looks to swing up a bit, damn gas prices jump and slow things down right away.  Plus never ending taxes keep a lid on things

Oil prices up, Texas economy goes up. Live in the moment but prepare for tomorrow. I always thought it would be Iran getting stupid to get oil prices to spike. My bad, it only took about 100 million dollars worth of cruise missiles to spark oil exploration in Texas. We are on it. Tooling up as we speak.

Put up a wall, anything to keep left coasters fleeing their taxes from messing up a great state with good people that actually are responsible individuals.

I'm very serious. We are being overtaken by both illegal immigrants and leftists fleeing their failed economic models. We are a state of hard working people with Christian values. I do not think allowing millions of failed Socialists into our state to drain our economy is a good thing.

Woodrow if I move over to Texas, what town should I look at? Primary needs are at least 10 acres, a couple of wells, and most important, within 20 miles of you and KIR so we can occasionally get together and discuss politics.

I'm 72 miles from woody which is a Sunday walk in Texas. Bhblue within 30 miles he can talk politics but he doesn't want to quoted in public. I've got a bottle he gave me 2 years ago, it's aging Rebecca Creek. I need to find him and tap that bottle [I named the bottle, Ivanka]

Those 10 acres you're talking about, the price depends on just which county you can afford. Don't come to Harris County where I live. At a minimum start at woody and go west for secluded 10 acres. Look at Medina or Bandera if you have the dough. Maybe Blanco or Wimberley

Land with live water, spring fed and seasonal creeks are in demand. If there is no live water, windmills or solar wells. 5-20K an acre for good land, 3-5K or lower the further west you go. If you have 2-3 million, you can buy a nice small ranch around LLano. Everything just West of Houston is 18-25K an acre for small tracts of 15 acres or less of good, non flood plain land.

A few years from now, I hope to be able to buy 40-50 acres here in the lower Appalachians.  I want to plant 10-15 in apples, peaches, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, and maybe do a u-pick type thing so it's not all wasted.

I would like to take another 20 or so and create pheasant habitat, and introduce pheasant to the property.

Then, me and my dog can sell fruit to tourists, and go pheasant hunting the rest of the time.  Hopefully, shoot a few turkeys too.
