    Hope that I can post the Bankruptcy. Not as many I guess they'd rather go out of business than file. I know there has to be more but I'm not going to collect that data.

    Congratulations Woman, you can post almost one half of a data set. Thanks for not bothering to interpret said data by mixing numbers with your own ideas as to what the data reflect. You posted the red columns from a statistic data sheet and left out the black columns, I am assuming you did this to make some point about how the election results have hurt our economy. Is this the inference you are trying to make?

    Sears and K Mart, during Obama's term.
    Be around 500K jobs lost.

    Their vehicle sales have sucked for years. This POS company went tits up way before Obama was even elected the first time and was bolstered in the US only due to motorcycle sales. That's just one. You're nuts. Especially if you believe 90% of these bastards as they use any excuse to bail out with golden parachutes - a Republican favorite.

    You even dateline it Election Day. You "conservatives" sound like the simpletons you are.

    What is lacking here imo is a comparison of layoff, closure etc. rates to the baselines established buy the last ten (or so) years. The naked numbers lack meaning and serve only to incite a general deficiency of gruntlement. Jmo. cn

    Totoe

    Totoe Active Member

    Are you going to ignore the fact that the companies are owned by the same corporate entity and have both been suffering from declining market share for over ten years, so that you may blame this on Obama?

    Actually we're after the same basic principle - perspective - but if i understand your post, we're following two different dimensions.
    You are interested in the corresponding positive news ... openings&expansions, hirings etc.
    I am interested in scaling the prima facie impressive list of negatives against the rates at which these things have been happening. WW implies but never states that this is extraordinary, "serves us right" for re-electing the poorer economic leader.
    but what if these events are not a spike, but buried in or even beneath the noise floor of the base layoff/closure rates? In that case, I accuse her news source of using statistics in the Clemensian idiom, i.e. as needing improvement before even meriting the descriptor "damned lies". Jmo. cn

    Gotcha, you are pointing out that she does not use history to show that this layoff/closure rate is abnormally high, while I point out she is only using half the data set.

    This entire situation was engineered by your favorite worm, Grover Nordquist. If we do go over what ever cliff this is, it will be because of Republican intransigence. Of course the right will make it look as though Obama won't play with the other kids in the sand lot but the truth is that it is actually the bullies on the right that see compromise as a word for "something is broken".
