    The number of U.S. workers applying for unemployment benefits for the first time rose sharply in the week ended May 11 after hitting a five-year low the previous week, the Labor Department said Thursday.

    First-time claims jumped 32,000 to 360,000, highest since March. The four-week moving average of initial claims, which smooths volatility, rose 1,250 to 339,250.

    Offshoring and foreign temporary workers. Curb the two and guess what will happen?

    THINK!

    If only *you* actually thought. The answer to your question? More unemployment as the economy goes down hill. Feel free to look up other economies who have tried it. Heck it's not like it's a new idea. Why do you suppose there's a great wall to begin with? (See Ming Dynasty)

    Why do you suppose the only time there are actually trade surpluses are when economies either are catching up to others or they're suffering in a recession?

    It all comes back to your fundamental lack of knowledge of economics and finance... and even more problematic, your unwillingness to delve into either topic.

    Ah yes, in with the insults (that make you look bad) as usual.


    ...and I'm sorry Riddler, far far brighter heads than the one you carry are commenting on this and addressing it.

    Of course I expect that from you, seeing as how you're in the business. icon_lol.gif

    I suggest you check out facebook which is rife with pages about this and the news.

    Bad to you? Sorry, you must have mistaken me for someone who cared.

    Far brighter heads than *yours* are commenting on this already. Yes, if only social media were also indicative of influence or intelligence. And insults? Try fact - for which you have little recourse or understanding.

    Here's an actual ad hominem - given you've chosen not to bother with any actual arguments - you're a sad (old) fool icon_wink.gif

    Heh you're such a troll who isn't even particularly good at it. If you thought that I agreed with everything Harper did, you're truly "special". In the meantime you can't even defend your own comments and ideas icon_lol.gif

    I have no need to defend them to you. Yikes, just how big is that ego of yours anyway? icon_eek.gif

    Oh would you like a gold merit badge for that? Does this mean you actually understand basic economics?

    You're ridiculous as always icon_lol.gif

    I seem to recall riddler's alleged job (when he isn't on RJ 24/7) is offshoring US & Canadian jobs to China. Is that true? Making any increase in US jobless & unemployment rates actually a victory for him. Can we say he has a conflict of interest in this discussion?

    Did I say you should defend them to me? You don't defend them anywhere. But again, not surprising given your level of knowledge on the issues you attempt to infer you know something about. icon_wink.gif

    One thing I do notice about Riddler, whenever I hit pay dirt his vicious side starts flailing.

    Lol - if you want to flatter yourself fine. I only bother to respond when I see your comments in threads and when they interest me. In this particular one, it was that your rationale was so nakedly ignorant but meh - I do encourage you to continue icon_lol.gif

    Hmmm...conflict of interest? Well, no.

    Not understanding the context of the term 'curb' in this case is more likely.

    Here's how I used it, as in 'curb your enthusiasm'. icon_wink.gif

    Likewise. In another of his posts I'm a "sad stupid old woman".

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3194137/

    When he's cornered his real side reveals itself.

    But I'm still curious who's feeding him this stuff, since he can't be posting 7 items in 2 minutes by himself, as I noted in another thread, along with pasted comments from the articles. That's just physically impossible, an interval of 17 seconds between them.

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3194137/

    How can he Google them, review them, paste from them, and post them here, in 17 seconds each? Even getting RSS feeds doesn't explain it. I smell a plant.

    No, no plant.
    I don't think he analyzes enough before posting. I also think he considers most people on RJ rather stupid.

    Only he knows all and everything. Like that. A lot of ego driven stuff, rather than the gestalt of heart and mind.

    Guys... why do disagreements always end up descending into arguments on RJ? Just keep an open mind to probe where there is common ground and where we can agree that there is a fundamental difference in beliefs, wouldn't that be easier on the heart than trolling one another?
