Fed: Student loans soar 275% over past decade - May. 31, 2012

Fed: Student loans soar 275% over past decade - May. 31, 2012: NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Student loans have more than tripled over the past decade, according to new data from the Federal Reserve.


Student loan debt hit $904 billion in the first quarter of 2012, up from $241 billion a decade ago, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York quarterly household debt report. That's up 275% since the same period in 2003.


Students continued heaping on debt throughout the economic downturn, even as Americans cut back on other forms of credit, such as mortgages and credit cards.


"It remains the only form of consumer debt to substantially increase since the peak of household debt in late 2008," said Donghoon Lee, senior economist at the NY Fed.

Jeb Bush Smacks Down Debbie Wasserman Schultz During House Budget Hearing - Jeb Bush - Fox Nation

Jeb Bush Smacks Down Debbie Wasserman Schultz During House Budget Hearing - Jeb Bush - Fox Nation: When former Florida Governor Jeb Bush testified before a House Budget Committee hearing Friday morning, he faced aggressive questioning from a familiar face: Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), a fellow Floridian. After a lengthy lecture directed at the former governor, the congressman asked a confrontational question about a particular bill he supported during his tenure, Bush shot back and defended his record.



Rep. Wasserman Schultz spent four minutes berating Bush for his decision as governor to use tax dollars to lure to Florida the private research institute Scripps, as opposed to public education or healthcare. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) interrupted her remarks, asking “Is the gentlelady going to give gentleman time to respond?”

President Obama Has Outspent Last Five Presidents - Washington Whispers (usnews.com)

President Obama Has Outspent Last Five Presidents - Washington Whispers (usnews.com)

June 1, 2012 RSS Feed Print
President Obama has shelled out more in federal spending than the five presidents that came before him.
A new chart by the Comeback America Initiative (CAI), a non-partisan group dedicated to promoting fiscal responsibility by policymakers, shows federal spending by president as a percentage of GDP, and it doesn't reflect well on Obama.
"There has been a dramatic increase in spending under the Obama administration," David Walker, Founder and CEO of CAI, told Whispers. "Most of it is attributable to year one of his presidency and the stimulus... but President Obama has continued to take spending to a new level."
Federal spending was close to 20 percent under the Carter administration, dropped to 18 percent under Clinton, and is currently at an incredible 24 percent of GDP. According to the Congressional Budget Office, federal spending may hover around 22 percent for the next decade.
Federal spending is also higher this year than any year since 1949. The last time spending was higher—in 1946, it was 24.8—the country was just coming down from the exorbitant rates of spending during World War II.
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said he would cut federal spending down to just 17 percent of GDP.
President Obama is facing some heat over the economy Friday after a depressing job report showed the jobless rate climbed to 8.2 percent in May.

Pity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Although pity may be confused with compassion, empathy, commiseration, condolence or sympathy, pity is different from all of these. Nietzsche pointed out that since all people to some degree value self-esteem and self-worth, pity can negatively affect any situation. Additionally, pity may actually be psychologically harmful to the pitied: Self-pity and depression can sometimes be the result of the power imbalance fostered by pity, sometimes with extremely negative psychological and psycho-social consequences for the pitied party.

Obama`s Failure is America`s Pain

Obama`s Failure is America`s Pain

Obama's Failure is America's Pain
(WASHINGTON)--- Congressman Allen West released this statement today in reaction to the May jobs report:

"It has never been more evident that President Barack Obama has failed Americans.  He has taken a situation that was bad and made it catastrophically worse.  Today's jobs report marks the 40th consecutive month of eight percent unemployment, the longest sustained period of such unemployment since the Great Depression, and the worst economic recovery in United States history. Despite assuring Americans that his plans of growing government and raising taxes will help the economy,  the President's policies result in just the opposite as the unemployment rate continues to increase, now at 8.2 percent, and families continue to struggle. The economy picked up only 69,000 jobs in May, well below even the lowest expectations.

President Obama continues to disappoint the American people without any real solutions for how to turn this country around.  Instead, he continues to campaign full time and ignore the dismal reality facing most families.  It is simply unacceptable.  Republicans have sent more than 30 jobs bills to the Senate, which continue to sit on Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid's desk.  These bills will put Americans back to work.  However, instead of signing them, the Democrats and this Administration continue to play politics with Americans' lives.

The President has a clear vision for this country, and it includes job-killing overregulation, increased taxes, and a healthcare plan that has already had devastating affects on the economy, and it has not been fully implemented yet.
Americans deserve a response from President Obama on today's somber jobs report, a response that does not point the finger or blame, but takes responsibility for the three and a half years he has been in office, without anything to show for it in the way of improving American lives or building confidence in this economy."

The Trinity in Apples - Yahoo! Voices - voices.yahoo.com

The Trinity in Apples - Yahoo! Voices - voices.yahoo.com: Marxhausen explains that each part of the apple - the peel, flesh, core - have different functions, yet are all "apple" and nothing else. She also goes on to explain that the Trinity [three parts] of God - Father, Son Jesus, Holy Spirit - are all God in different forms. She states that just as the peel protects the apple - God the Father protects humankind, an apple has flesh - Jesus was God made flesh and the core of the apple, like the Holy Spirit, contains the seeds. Just as seeds of apple trees grow in fertile, watered and cared for ground; seeds of faith will sprout, grow and flourish. The seeds of faith are just that - faith - in something [God] that has no tangible nature. One of the major values and beliefs taught in the Christian faith is that its communities [churches or denominations] of people need to nurture and care for one another to keep the seeds of faith alive.

American Defense Outsourcing Has Become a National Security Threat

American Defense Outsourcing Has Become a National Security Threat: It is true and widely known that the US military readiness rests on outdated planes, vehicles, and parts. Severe budget problems affect all sectors of spending and the military is usually often hit hardest despite a huge annual Pentagon defense budget. To meet its demands, the Pentagon has increasingly turned to cheaper and often unreliable foreign parts and weapons technology. The consequence of course impacts high-end prime US contracting companies that are forced to seek foreign markets to maintain revenue even if some of their oversea clients and partners are considered war adversaries. The trend toward foreign suppliers has only increased in recent years. The Defense Department recently revealed that an estimated 80 percent of all defense components are bought from foreign countries.

It was also a location for "The Gangbang Girl #32," a hard-core pornographic movie that featured 40 minutes of group sex on the gridiron turf, The Times has learned.



Obamanomics: Unemployment Claims Up, GDP Down

Obamanomics: Unemployment Claims Up, GDP Down
 Even the Los Angeles Times can't spin Obama's fail:
New unemployment claims unexpectedly jumped last week, indicating a pickup in layoffs, a worrisome sign ahead of Friday's important jobs report for May.
Adding to the dreary economic news, the government said in a separate report Thursday that U.S. gross domestic product grew at a slower pace in the first quarter than previously thought. Growth in GDP, the total value of goods and services produced in the nation, was revised down to an annualized rate of 1.9% from 2.2% initially estimated a month ago.
The revision by the Commerce Department reflected a smaller increase in consumer spending and inventory building, and a bigger drag on growth from government cuts and the trade deficit. On the positive side, business investments were revised slightly higher.

The facts about the growth of spending under Obama, Part 2 - The Washington Post

The facts about the growth of spending under Obama, Part 2 - The Washington Post: When looking at Obama’s spending, the key issue is what to do about the 2009 fiscal year. Since the federal government’s fiscal year begins on Oct. 1, about four months took place in Bush’s presidency — and those were dramatic months of fiscal crisis and emergency spending.


Obama supported and voted for Bush-started programs such as the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Moreover, many key appropriations bills were held back by Democrats until Obama became president, and then he pushed through an $830 billion stimulus bill (which consisted of mostly spending). In ordinary times, one could argue that 2009 should be counted as Bush’s year, but in fact many of the key spending decisions were actually made by Obama.

'POLICE ACADEMY' Star Rips Obama - Steve Guttenberg - Fox Nation

'POLICE ACADEMY' Star Rips Obama - Steve Guttenberg - Fox Nation

Steve Guttenberg, star of the 1984 movie “Police Academy,” criticized President Obama in an interview with the website CreditCards.com published Wednesday...
 
CreditCards.com: Do you think Washington can rein in the misbehavior?
 
Guttenberg: It's hard to believe in the presidency anymore. I voted for Obama, I love Obama, but I don't want to see Obama on "The View," I don't want to see him playing Frisbee, I don't want to know that it's $40,000 a plate at George Clooney's house, and I adore George Clooney. Hey man, I've got a friend of mine who's got a $7 an hour job at Dunkin Donuts and he can't get a $9 an hour job over at the country club because there are so many people in front of him. I believe that the president should be his desk all day. I don't want to see him on vacation, I don't want to see him at Martha's Vineyard, I don't want to see Mrs. Obama in Spain. No, no, I do not want to see that because everybody's struggling. These CEOs shouldn't be taking all this money. No Rolls Royces. No private planes.
 
CreditCards.com: How would you change things?
 
Guttenberg: Here's my big point: The government should start allowing people to take their 401(k)s and invest in things other than the market. Let us invest our money in real estate, and instead of buying more shares of some inane stock, let me buy an apartment for my retirement and rent it out, and then when I'm 65, I can sell the apartment. What is this bulls--- that we're only allowed to invest in equities? It's ruining the country. Let us invest in other things instead of the market. Enough already.

ZZ TOP OFFERS FOUR NEW SONGS TO WHET FANS’ APPETITE : ZZ Top

ZZ TOP OFFERS FOUR NEW SONGS TO WHET FANS’ APPETITE : ZZ Top







HERE'S WHAT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!.....Next Tuesday, June 5, will see the release of Texicali, a four track digital collection from ZZ Top that offers the first new studio recordings from “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas” in nine years. The four new songs, available from iTunes and all digital retail outlets, offer a
preview of the group’s full-length album, as yet untitled, that will be released on American Recordings late this summer or early fall. Those purchasing the four songs will benefit from a pro-rated discount on the purchase of the full album when it is released. Rollingstone.com will be previewing new music through an audio stream for one day only, Monday, June 4.

The four tracks that comprise Texicali, like the forthcoming album, were produced by Rick Rubin and the band’s Billy F Gibbons and include “I Gotsta Get Paid,” “Chartreuse,” “Over You” and “Consumption.” The first of these is heard in a just-launched campaign for the Jeremiah Weed line of malt beverages that has generated tremendous on-line buzz for the video (youtube.com/jeremiahweed) that depicts Billy, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard performing -- to the delight and amazement of the patrons of a convenience store -- in a walk-in cooler. “I Gotsta Get Paid,” based on the underground 1990s rap song “25 Lighters,” is also heard on the soundtrack to the international box office hit Battleship. The title of the collection is a reference to the locations where the album was recorded. founding of ZZ Top more than 42 years ago and an acknowledgement that the band’s line-up has remained constant ever since.

“Based on the visibility of the ‘Gotsta Get Paid’ song, we decided to make available more of a taste of the album than just the one song,” said American’s Rubin. “That’s the beauty of the new digital landscape; we can put out what we want when we want, in the best service of the artist.”

Notes Gibbons, “We were itching to get some new music out before the full album release; making available these four tracks seems like a good way to accomplish that most expeditiously. Dusty, Frank and I are happy with what’s been accomplished in the studio so we figured we’d provide some hot and tasty ‘hors d’oeuvres’ before the main course is served this fall.”

The band embarks this week as the headliner for a six-week “Gang of Outlaws” tour that includes bills shared with 3 Doors Down and Gretchen Wilson. Thereafter, ZZ Top departs for Europe where they will be playing concert and festival dates in Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Norway in July. Additional North American dates are planned for August and September. All of this activity underscores the fact that ZZ Top continues as a vital force in music today, more than 42 years after its founding and with its ever-enduring line up totally intact.

Wealth Creation Is Not the Enemy - Reason.com

Wealth Creation Is Not the Enemy - Reason.com: While the goal of making a profit leads a company to minimize costs, the goal of creating jobs means maximizing costs: rejecting every labor-saving innovation, shunning organizational efficiencies, and hiring people just for the sake of putting them to work, even if the work is not worth the wage. A company operated that way eventually would employ no one.


Since a private equity firm makes money by buying and selling companies, it has a strong incentive to make those businesses more valuable. That might mean an expansion that requires hiring more people, or it might mean cost cutting that includes layoffs. Sometimes—as in the case of GST, which was in serious trouble before Bain bought it and ultimately could not compete with low-cost foreign manufacturers—turnaround efforts fail.


Obama wants to avoid the pain that inevitably accompanies this profit-driven, competitive discovery process. To get an idea of the alternative he has in mind, consider his $840 billion stimulus package, the success of which he measured by jobs "created or saved," regardless of whether those jobs were worth doing.

Fringe - Season 5 - Observer-led Future? (Spoilers): Fringe producers Jeff Pinkner and exec JH Wyman tease the final season of the fan favourite show in the new issue of SFX, and a here’s a little extract to whet your appetites:


Will the season look like the fascist Observer-led future of 2036 glimpsed in the season four episode “Letters Of Transit”?


“Yeah, I think it’s safe to say you will [see that],” says Wyman. “Part of our storytelling is about reveals and re-contextualizing what you think you know and what you’ve seen and putting it in a different mind frame for the viewer. It’s good to say that future is important to our storytelling but it’s not the be-all and end-all. The critical question is always why do we do flashbacks or flash-forwards and for us there is always a reason. Does ‘Letters Of Transit’ have further implications? It does. You need to understand what it is, or was, in order to fully grasp the thematic things we want to tell this year.”
