Hasta la vista to Obama's, Clinton's Taco-jobs, Hola Trump's economy and opportunities

trump tacoThe latest employment report will be the final economic indicator Americans will receive before the election.  

In October, there were 161,000 new jobs created throughout the country, but that figure was below expectations. In 2016, the average number of new jobs created each month has been 181,000, far below the 229,000-average monthly figure of 2015.  

 

 

Even more troubling, 425,000 people left the workforce altogether, giving us a labor force participation rate of only 62.8%, very close to the all-time low rate of the 1970’s.  

While wages increased slightly, the average work week was stagnant at only 34.4 hours.  

Not surprisingly, liberal economists are heralding the report as another indication of a growing economy. Sadly, nothing could be further from the truth.  

Per the household survey, the number of full-time jobs decreased by 103,000, while part-time positions increased by 90,000. This is another horrible consequence of Obamacare which mandates that employers provide healthcare to any employees working more than 30 hours per week.  

There are now over 8 million Americans forced to work multiple jobs just to survive, which is the largest number of part-time workers since 1996.  

One sector hit especially hard in the last month was manufacturing which lost 9,000 jobs. These are jobs which are not coming back to this country unless we elect Donald Trump as President. He is pledging to renegotiate or withdraw from trade deals which have been so harmful to our country. Since China was allowed into the World Trade Organization, America has lost an astounding 70,000 factories.  

In reviewing the overall economy, we clearly have some disturbing patterns. We have traded well-paying manufacturing jobs for service sector jobs, such as fast food positions at Taco Bell, which just announced they will be adding 100,000 new jobs over the next six years. 

While this is good news for fast food lovers, it is not indicative of a healthy economy.  It reflects the fact that Americans are buying cheaper meals and being forced to take service sector positions, the only type of jobs available in this Obama economy.  

With more Americans working multiple jobs or forced to survive on fast food salaries, it is no wonder that our home ownership rate is now at a 51-year low.  

This will only change with the creation of more high-paying jobs in the private sector. If Americans elect Hillary Clinton next Tuesday, we will be giving control of our economy to someone with no history of job creation and no experience in the private sector.  

With such a weak economy, it is essential for Americans to elect Donald Trump, the only candidate who can bring real growth to our economy. His plan to cut taxes and regulations are just what American businesses need to be competitive and grow.  

It is another reason why this election is the most consequential in our lifetime.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
