What Foreclosures?

From HousingWire:

Foreclosure inventory drops to less than 1% nationally

Foreclosure inventory in August declined significantly from last year, hitting its lowest point since the housing boom, according to the August 2016 National Foreclosure Report from CoreLogic, a property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider.

Foreclosure inventory decreased 29.6% while completed foreclosures decreased 42.4% to 37,000, down from last year’s 64,000, according to the report. This is down slightly from last month’s 38,000 completed foreclosures. The decrease is 69% less than its peak of 118,551 in September 2010.

In August, the national foreclosure inventory hit 351,000, or 0.9% of all homes with a mortgage. This is down from 499,000, or 1.3%, in August 2015. This inventory is the lowest it’s been since July 2007.

“Foreclosure inventory fell by 30% from the previous year, the largest year-over-year decline since January 2015,” CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said.

“The large decline in the distressed inventory has been one of the drivers of steady home price growth which helps Americans increase their home equity to support increased spending or cushion future economic risk,” Nothaft said.

The number of mortgages in serious delinquency, mortgages that are 90 days or more past due including loans in foreclosure or real estate owned, saw a significant decrease of 20.6% from last year. At 1.1 million mortgages, or 2.8%, mortgages in serious delinquency hit its lowest point since Sept. 2007.

“Foreclosure rates and serious delinquency continued to trend down in August as real estate markets across many parts of the U.S. exhibit strong demand growth and rising prices,” CoreLogic President and CEO Anand Nallathambi said.

    Based on the last CoreLogic report, NY is poised to take over the lead in the next few months.

    Foreclosure Inventory
    NY – 2.9%
    NJ – 3.2%

    Year over Year Change
    NY – Down 23.8%
    NJ – Down 32.1%

    Serious Delinquency
    NY – 5.5%
    NJ – 6.3%

    Year over Year Change
    NY – Down 19.5%
    NJ – Down 22.9%

  2. grim says:

    Not that it matters much, since NY and NJ are now the major outliers, the next closest state is currently sitting at 1.8%.

    Some interesting insight into what was going on behind the scenes in Washington Friday and Saturday night.

    -Paul Ryan’s staff was pressuring others to withdraw support for Trump
    -Ryan’s plan was to ask Pence to replace him
    -Plan on losing to Hillary in 2016 to pave the way for a Ryan/Rubio ticket in 2020

    I don’t see how their model translates into brick-and-mortar grocery. But, they have the cash to experiment with other business models. Grocery delivery is a hot area right now, especially in urbanized metros.

    Hell, we use Fresh Direct every once in a while when we are busy and can’t make it to a store. The prices aren’t outrageous, and its incredibly convenient.

    I could see how Amazon might view this a threat, it looks like Walmart is having a second go at grocery deliver too (they did try this previously and failed).

    When I saw Republican men getting attacked I stood up for them. I came to their defense. I fought on their behalf. 2/

    @MBGlenn
    I fought on behalf of a movement I believed in. I fought on behalf of my principles while other women told me I hated my own sex. 3/

    @MBGlenn
    Not only charges of sexism, but I defended @marcorubio during Go8, I fought in my state to stop the @ScottWalker recall, etc…

    He treats women like dogs, and you go against everything I – and other female conservatives – said you were & back down like cowards. 6/

    @MBGlenn
    Get this straight: We don’t need you to stand up for us, YOU needed to stand up for us for YOU. For YOUR dignity. For YOUR reputation. 7/

    @MBGlenn
    Jeff Sessions says that he wouldn’t “characterize” Trump’s unauthorized groping of women as “assault.” Are you kidding me?! 8/

    @MBGlenn is a devout #nevertrump she has zero credibility. She hated him before the tape.

    @MBGlenn
    Others try to rebuke his comments, yet STILL choose to vote for a sexual predator – because let’s be honest, that’s what he is. 9/

    @MBGlenn
    “What he said is wrong, and the way he treats women is wrong, but it’s not wrong enough for me to not vote for him.” Thanks, cowards. 10/

    @MBGlenn
    Various men in the movement are writing it off as normal, confirming every stereotype the left has thrown at them. So I’m done. 11/

    @MBGlenn
    I’m sooo done. If you can’t stand up for women & unendorse this piece of human garbage, you deserve every charge of sexism thrown at you. 12

    @MBGlenn
    I’m just one woman, you won’t even notice my lack of presence at rallies, fair booths, etc., You won’t really care that I’m offended 13/

    @MBGlenn

    It’s all out collusion between the campaign, administration, and media to an extent that hasn’t been seen in my lifetime. Are they all sharing common office space to coordinate activities?

  15. Comrade Nom Deplorable, just waiting on the Zombie Apocalypse. says:

    SX,

    To me, the ultimate issue is which side will better preserve the balance of power and are constitutional system. I think that the evidence is starting to become overwhelming that the current administration in the future administration will make the Nixon administration look like amateurs in their disrespect for the rule of law and their willingness to use the apparatus of government to further their ends.

    Deflect the issue? A guy running for president gets caught saying barbaric crap that only a simple minded individual would say, and you claim it’s plan to deflect from the issue? Why the hell would I want the president of the United States to think and speak like that? Anyone else caught saying this crap would have been gone, but it’s trump, he gets a free pass to say and do whatever the f@ck he wants. And his followers support him like a god/king who can do no wrong. It’s the definition of insanity and I don’t know how the hell America got to this point. We have a WWE former employee running for the highest position in the United States. Can’t make this stuff up. How many idiots are there out there, that a loser like this gets to run for president?

    If he wins, our kids have to look up to a tool like this? Really? Insanity!!

    Media driven narrative? They put out stories that sell. Supporters of trump act like the media is against him, but they are dead wrong. They put out stories that sell, it’s as simple as that. Trump was god given gift to the media and they are eating it up. Trump would never ever have gotten this far without all the media attention he has received. He has been given a ton of free advertising by our media. So enough with the bs myth that the media out to get trump. They are out there TO MAKE MONEY. And trump’s dumb a$$ moves on a regular basis sell lots of stories.

    You mean like Bill Clinton taking advantage of an intern and having sex IN THE OVAL OFFICE. Do we need to bring the cigar into this?

    Since when have politicians been morally upstanding when it comes to sexual relationships?

    Hell, it is EXTREMELY LIKELY that NJ’s own Menendez had sex with an underage prostitute in the Dominican Republic, who was offered to him as a bribe.

    The whole god damn lot of them are sex addicts. Spitzer, Wiener, Edwards, etc etc etc. What about still sitting Barney Frank’s partner running a brothel out of his house. Yeah, he had no idea.

  23. lost says:

    Grim, what do other people have to do with Trump. Why are you defending him? I can go back in history and find politicians from both side of the field that have done messed up stuff, but I’m not going to do that in support of a loser like Trump.

    And yes, he is a loser. Look at his skills in running those golf courses in Great Britain. That’s the only businesses we have access to his numbers, and he is losing money on them. Running a failing business. The guy is terrible when it comes to business. He constantly loses, but plays it off like he is some big winner.

    But what I can’t stand is the holier than though double standard now adopted by democrats.

    From my perspective, both sides have their hands pretty low, like in their pants.

He also thinks he can be most helpful to her if he has that kind of relationship. He wants to be seen as the loudest progressive voice for her and in order to do that he needs access. In the next 6 months, someone else will have to inherit this relationship because it will not be tenable for HRC. “

  37. jcer says:

    lost, not everyone speak like that but it is fairly common for men to say some rather nasty stuff. Both Trump and Clinton are morally reprehensible people in it for power, ego, money, etc. Neither will do right for the people, but the way I see it is that Trump is an outsider, politically inexperienced, and will be a lame duck president regardless of who controls clowngress and the senate. I’ll take 4 years of no legislation over HRC’s redistribution plan, more great ideas like Obamacare, possible war with Russia if we keep up this Syria nonsense. I actually think that Trump who is so hated by all politicians and elites if he became President would accomplish very little and given our options that is probably as close to ideal as we can get. Also in international relations he is so unpredictable that I actually think foreign nations will have more fear and respect for us that we have under Obama.

    Words vs Actions…

    You think those innocent children we see on the news getting slaughtered now by USA supplied weapons in Syria and Iraq love Hillary Clinton? Or how about those children drowning in the Aegean and the Med nearly every day? Who destabilized the whole damm region? Bush has been out of office 8 years, before those kids were even born. The whole mess in Syria and Libya is all Hillary’s and Obama’s doing, and many, many more are going to die because of their actions.

  44. grim says:

    I am not arguing he is not a shitbag. We’ve had a long history of discussing Trump’s general douchbaggery pre-politician.

    But I’ll take a page from Fabius’ playbook.

    Generally, democrats have been silent against talking out about members of their own party who have been accused of committing sexual assault or taking part in generally non-moral sexual behavior.

    So, by being complicit about it, they are CONDONING it.

    Now the democratic party is the moral majority?

    The irony is unbelievable.

    Why is Anthony Weiner not in prison? His ex-wife is a superstar because his dick was on the cover of the post, and in the cell phones of underage girls.

    There was a time when that guy would be found dead, and nobody would bother questioning it.

    When exactly did Mrs. Clinton argue for the impeachment of her husband?

    Oh, yeah.

    Sorry, but screwing an intern as the POTUS is rape, why is there no question of the outrageous impropriety of that situation.

    Again, do not confuse this as a defense of Trump or his behavior, it is NOT.

    I am questioning the egregious political behavior of these hypocritical actors.

    If women knew how men spoke behind closed doors they would never have anything to do with us, further if they knew what was going on in our brains and NOT said, they would really freak out.

  57. Flee? says:

    Grim,

    I am no longer a betting man, but I am very confident (four+ sigmas) that Trump will not be President. Time to move on — it is 10-0 bottom of the 9th; leading by 30 points with a minute left; or trailing 5-0 with two players of the losing team getting red cards. It’s more over than when a new guy from India comes in with sweets to someone’s desk and says, “Hi, I am Asok from Cognizant. What is your good name? … Wonderful to meet you. Kindly partake these delicacies, and then kindly start training me as your replacement. I truly hope that you have a golden parachute and are retiring to a mansion in Hawaii”. Of course, there is a chance that one gets to keep the job, but wouldn’t count on it.

    By continuously defending him when the logical thing is to wait and hope it is over (invoking Beyonce and Rap lyrics will only keep the issue more alive and will hurt him), the right will basically end up giving a pass to Hillary administration.

    By focusing on specifics on policy (e.g. should dividends be taxed as income or not [yes], should carry forward loophole be fixed [yes, I am with Trump on that issue]), there will at least be some policy discussion and possibility of progress.

    Otherwise, it will simply be “yo mamma” insults everywhere, and Hillary plus the congress will silently agree on some major policy issues while outwardly fighting (a good cop, bad cop routine).

    May be many higher income group people get into this stuff because the system works very well for them? But, just like the danger of a genocide-lite, the flip side is a risk of a French Revolution-lite… A more savvy version of Bernie can shake up the system as badly as a savvy version of Trump.

    Nom already maintains counts of people that flee the country because (please don’t laugh…) the taxes are too high! Imagine if a savvy Bernie goes after the rich guys!

  58. D-FENS says:

    Jesus…now there’s CNN footage of Obama showing his junk to female reporters?

  59. Grim says:

    Trump won’t win simply because the hatred of him is stronger than the hatred of Hillary. What I don’t understand is how he became the reason for everything that is wrong in America.

    I don’t understand your India comment. My dad came here with basically nothing, and went from sweeping the floor in a machine shop to basically running the company.

    My position is that everyone gets a shake, especially immigrants. I associate myself more with immigrants than with longstanding residents. But, I don’t stand behind political manipulation of what I believe is an unfair system.

  60. Flee? says:

    If Bill’s actions disqualify Hillary, why is this an issue only when Trump’s tape is leaked? Why did not disqualify Hillary for SoS? Where was this outrage two weeks ago? A disqualification is a disqualification, period.

    Grim, why are you going all in for Trump? You know the difference between consensual and non-consensual. You know the difference between accusation and admission (there is an ongoing rape case against Trump [the accuser was 13 year old at that time]). You know that writing a book about terrorists flying planes into a building is very very different from terrorists flying planes into WTC.

  61. Grim says:

    May god have mercy on us all.

    Hillary will win, but not on her merits or qualifications, but because her competitor was a complete assbag. Congratulations for having less suck.

    If they both died in a plane wreck, we would be better off. I still hold out hope that Trump is assassinated and Hillary has a stroke.

    This is my position.

  67. Flee? says:

    But, I don’t stand behind political manipulation of what I believe is an unfair system.

    As opposed to? Is there someone that actually stands behind the political manipulation (other than some major power brokers or actual politicians)? It needs to be fixed. But John Smith III, Esq. lobbies on behalf of Super Rich Bass Turd, the boss, who has deals with Body Shop Ltd. in India, so the fix needs to be there. For all we know, Asok comes in with sometimes no job guarantee (illegal for H1B’s but some do), pays for his own visa processing (again, illegal), and is on his own if he doesn’t find a job (again, the company that sponsors the H1B is responsible for all — Asok shouldn’t be here unless there is a guaranteed job, and he shouldn’t have to pay for anything other than flight fare and the sweets).

    Rich Bass Turd plays golf with the the Indian version of Rich Bass Turd and gets to then complain against people like Asok, so that his previous employee who is now selling soda can redirect his anger away from these two.

    The Asok and sweets started off as a jab at someone here that complains about his job getting outsourced but expresses undying loyalty to the bosses that hire and fire him as needed!

    Arms dealer says administration made him scapegoat on Libya operation to ‘protect’ Clinton

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/10/12/arms-dealer-says-administration-made-him-scapegoat-on-libya-operation-to-protect-clinton.html

    “Some (weapons) may have went out under control that we had with our personnel over there and the others went to these militia. That’s how they lost control over it,” Turi said. “I can assure you that these operations did take place and those weapons did go in different directions.”

    Asked by Fox News who got the weapons — Al Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia, or ISIS — Turi said: “All of them, all of them, all of them.”

  69. Grim says:

    Let’s put Asok aside. Why are we not inviting Ukrainian firefighters? At a salary of $100k+, these are clearly specialized roles. Why stop there? Clearly a shortage of police based on current salaries. Doctors, nurses, dentists, politicians. I just had someone tell me they were quoted $5k labor on a easy bathroom remodel, bring in the polish plumbers.

  70. Grim says:

    Or, why not be fair and establish quotas by country? Shouldn’t all of our global neighbors be given equal opportunity?

  71. Comrade Nom Deplorable, just waiting on the Zombie Apocalypse. says:

    Footrest,

    In keeping with the tenor your side is adavsncing, wittingly or not, I firmly believe that wanton violence never solves anything. But in your case, I’m willing to make an exception.

    So rather than argue, let’s cut to the chase: I literally hate you and hope you die from a long, painful, incurable and debilitating illness.

  72. D-FENS says:

    Group hug?

  73. Comrade Nom Deplorable, just waiting on the Zombie Apocalypse. says:

    Yeah I know. I raced to the bottom. Someone had to and I’m cranky enough these days that volunteering was easy. Seems appropriate these days.

  74. Essex says:

    imagine mics on most of the Kennedy clan.

    mic drop.

  75. Essex says:

    12:16 Stop you are scaring me.

  76. Grim says:

    I stopped before I said teachers.

  77. Grim says:

    Shame that Marilyn lived in the pre sex tape era.

    She could have leaked her own tape and really been a superstar … speaking of public role models.

    You know, I had the extreme unluck to be in the Garden Statr Plaza when the kardashians made some appearance. The number of parents that brought their impressionable daughters there was shocking.

    You know, just speaking about role models and all.

  78. Deflect the issue? A guy running for president gets caught saying barbaric crap that only a simple minded individual would say, and you claim it’s plan to deflect from the issue something no worse than each of us has said or heard in the last 11 years.

    I might believe that Mitt Romney hasn’t said or heard worse, but I think that’s where I would draw the line.

    BTW, are you on the $6 million payroll of contract trolls that Clinton employs to write stuff like this?

  79. Anon E. Moose, saying 'Come back, JJ' says:

    “Lost” must be one of Hillary’s paid online trolls.

    Where were you when darling of the NY metro left Lena Dunham admitted in her memoirs to molesting her little sister? *CRICKETS*

  80. chicagofinance says:

    “An enlightened position” …….get over yourself…… and I was one of the ones who posted how the c-word bothers me……but it is because it bothers ME….not because I am justified in being morally or intellectually superior….

    No, I will not support barbaric behavior or talk. Telling me everyone does it, doesn’t make it any better. An enlightened position would not be for this kind of behavior with women. It took a long time to get to this enlightened position of equality in humanity, and I’m not about to give it all away by brushing off what trump has said and done.

  83. Anon E. Moose, saying 'Come back, JJ' says:

    If “Lost” and his ilk said anything it was to accuse those of called Dunham and HBO on it of sexism.

    TL;DR — Lena Dunham can’t imagine why OBJ isn’t into her at Met Gala — he must be shy or gay. O_o

    More crickets from the left on Dunham’s gay-bashing and/or narcissism — I mean only a gay wouldn’t find her attractive, right?

  84. Comrade Nom Deplorable, just waiting on the Zombie Apocalypse. says:

    Risking contact with Kardashians is one reason I’m glad I’m not in NJ.

    The fact that we even know who they are is a blight on our society.

    It doesn’t bother lost or most of the public, particularly not those on the left; See, 80 million copies of ’50 Shades’ sold. “Any weapon to hand” is the motto of the left.

    @MaxBoot
    Trump & his followers a live in an alternative reality, Bizarro world, where up is down and black is white.

    @DylanByers
    Sincerely curious: Trump folks who hear Rudy say he doesn’t remember seeing HRC on 9/11 don’t care he’s lying or don’t believe he’s lying?

  90. nwnj3 says:

    What could it POSSIBLY SAY that would cause any Hillary believers to change their mind? That they rigged the primary? That she took millions from Wall St and offered preferential treatment in return? That she set up a private email system to circurmvent disclosure laws? That she wants completely open immigration and to annihilate the countries middle class? What is left that she hasn’t already done or is planning to do that could hurt her image any further?

  91. Fast Eddie says:

    nwnj3,

    It appears that she is entirely insulated. I really think there is nothing, absolutely nothing she can’t do. I would seriously say we are witnessing the disintegration of a nation.

    It appears that she is entirely insulated. I really think there is nothing, absolutely nothing she can’t do. I would seriously say we are witnessing the disintegration of a nation.

    I said exactly that when Comey announced non-prosecution on the e-mail server: If she can so blatantly flout the law and skate before she is even elected, what is supposed to convince her to obey the law once she’s in the Oval Office?

    All hail Madame President BleachBit.

  96. Catholic Spring?

    “There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church,” Sandy Newman, president and founder of the progressive nonprofit Voices for Progress, writes to Podesta in an email titled “opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing.”

  97. Anon E. Moose, saying 'Come back, JJ' says:

    ExPat [14:12];

    why is it that we believe the polls are still pure?

    They are no less pure than the ballots themselves – early and widespread mail-in voting; dead registrants in Va.; illegals and other aliens getting registered; no ID at the polls; vulnerable electronic counting machines. The media polls have no less to do with reality than the actual vote counts will.

  101. Anon E. Moose, saying 'Come back, JJ' says:

    That she took millions from Wall St and offered preferential treatment in return?

    Just Wall St.? Add from the Saudis and Yemenis in exchange for arms funneled to terrorists; from Russia for cover on expanding its holdings in Uranium mining operation… why else would the Clinton Crime Family Foundation exist if not to put US policy up for sale?

    And you are right – the depressingly large segment of people who support just her don’t care.

  102. Essex says:

    Perhaps we are living in the Post Role-Model Era.

    Probably good advice.

  104. Juice Box says:

    re: Role Model

    Best advice for the kids that are old enough and aware enough of the stakes of an election like this is to tell them don’t believe the hype. There is propaganda from all sides as they struggle for power and dominance.

    Everyone I ever knew that came from a communist country to the US said they always knew what propaganda was since there was only one newspaper and one channel on TV or Radio repeating only one message.

    Here we have many different messages some propaganda and some not meaning there can be at times, even more propaganda here in the US than a communist country and most people born and raised here really don’t even realize the amount of propaganda they’re being fed daily.

  105. nwnj3 says:

    In their desperation to prop up Hillary big media definitely crossed the line from bias to complete propaganda. The journalistic standard was completely abandoned.

    My response to anyone I meet from the media going forward will be to laugh right in their face.

  106. Comrade Nom Deplorable and Irredeemable says:

    Juice,

    “Best advice for the kids that are old enough and aware enough of the stakes of an election like this is to tell them don’t believe the hype. There is propaganda from all sides as they struggle for power and dominance.”

    Doing that now with my 13YO. And reminding her to spout the party line in public.

    “Everyone I ever knew that came from a communist country to the US said they always knew what propaganda was . . .”

    Same here–I know plenty of them and all of them see their former C0mmunist leadership in the form of our current democratic party.

  107. grim says:

    Pravda.

    Maybe the Russians are just trying to help?

  108. Ira Magaziner: CHAI would like to request that President Clinton call Sheik Mohammed to thank him for offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia and expressing regrets that President Clinton’s schedule does not permit him to attend the conference.

    “In their desperation to prop up Hillary big media definitely crossed the line from bias to complete propaganda. The journalistic standard was completely abandoned.”

    The best part about the email dump is that we have actual names. Those “journalists” are forever compromised. Some like Kurt Eichenwald came out long ago, but the ones in the Podesta and Palmieri emails are like deep cover agents were were outed. They should be treated like known spies from here on in and fed disinformation.

  111. Juice Box says:

    re: “Those “journalists” are forever compromised.”

    As are the MSM that own them and give them marching orders.

    “Look at our current candidates. No one appears to like either one of them. Their approval ratings are at record lows. It’s not about who you like more, it’s about who you hate less. Sure, we can blame the media, the system, and the candidates themselves, but let’s be honest – Donald and Hillary are there because we put them there. The electorate has tolerated the intolerable. We’ve treated this entire process like the final episode of American Idol. What did we expect?”

  116. STEAMturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    Why did (cigargate) not disqualify Hillary for SoS?

    I’ve been bitching about Hillary being weak for not dumping Bill in the White House for as long as I can remember. I also have complained about how the Clinton’s used New York (especially Harlem) for huge political opportunity. They are both amazing opportunists. And Chelsea is probably next in line. You’ll see. Both of these clowns do not deserve your votes. The income gap and pay to play politics is what is absolutely destroying America and neither of them are a vote against either. Bend over middle class. Time to fund the rich.

  117. STEAMturd questioning the gender of Hillary's Cankle fluid. says:

    In other news, I just riffed three of my direct reports this week. Two of them will have their jobs performed in our Indian office. Am I mad at Indian’s? Hell no. Not their fault in any way. But I blame George Bush with Bill Clinton’s overwhelming support for NAFTA for making this opportunity possible. It didn’t help me much, but it sure helped my company do more for less. At what point does our economy completely grind to a halt? It’s the middle class that spends and keeps dollars recycling. Shame the middle class is being outsourced to enrich the upper class. How can we blame the workers for taking our jobs when it’s the leaders who have enriched themselves and made it all possible?

  120. Flee? says:

    Grim,

    “Look at our current candidates. No one appears to like either one of them. Their approval ratings are at record lows.”

    Your bias at play. Hillary has had high approvals for a long time — she’s been the “most admired woman” for ever (once losing to Mother Teresa and once to Laura Bush?). A lot of people supported her in 2008, and are supporting her in 2012. Please don’t go for the false equivalency. As of now, Hillary has no virtually no opposition, so her critics and supporters should try to influence policy instead of claiming that she smells of sulfur or worse, only celebrating the kamikaze mission that Trump is undertaking against GOP. With a little bit more majority in 2008, we’d have had medicare for all in the ACA instead of the nice gift to health care companies.

    This board (as is rest of media) are hell bent on painting her and Obama as the devil. No useful discussion, let alone any good, can come from that inflexible stance. Even simple things like climate change are at times met with a Fox-news level synchronized rebuttal and accusations here (how the hell has it ever become a partisan issue — when many here enough math and logic background).

    On another note, please discourage posters that claim that they regularly hear people talk about women co-workers or friends or friends’ wives or daughters like how Donald talks. Our posts are all archived (unless Grim deletes them — and even then wayback machine will have a copy). In many cases, our families know each other here.

  121. No One says:

    Good comments from Grim today. I enjoy reading his own opinions.
    Turd, economic progress requires economizing. What Americans need to do is compete on a different level rather than settle for than mundane jobs, because our standard of living is at a level higher than most of the world. Americans need to have skills of value that can support that lifestyle. What does the US economy really need? More freedom, more savings plowed into useful investment (rather than plowed into funding government deficits and consumption and asset price bubbles), and taking education of future generations out of the hands of bureaucrats and excellence-stifling unions.

    She has been hovering at 50’s and 60’s for over two decades. This election has been brutal — she got hammered from the left and the right. They will go up after she wins and gets off the campaign mode.

    Are you disagreeing that she had been popular? Despite the numbers? When people are over-confident, and won’t even concede simple points, they end up winning by default because no one will respond to them, and they become more sure of themselves, and see everyone agreeing them with polite nods.

  128. yome says:

    GOP should have just voted for Garland. Now they dont know who they will get if Hillary wins and GOP lose Majority.

  129. joyce says:

    Right, it seems as though the more she’s in the spotlight the less people like her. I remember a post not too long ago that blamed that entirely on sexism… meh; maybe when she runs for office and more people look at her, there’s just less to like? Maybe, I’m open to possibilities.

    “Are you disagreeing that she had been popular?” No, but I would say in light of one many themes today that you can be popular and still not a good role model.

  132. Fabius Maximus says:

    Grim,

    I read the Mike Rowe piece and disagree with it. I like a lot of what he stands for and what he posts, but I can’t agree with this one. I get the whole uneducated voter piece, but what he misses, is that if you don’t vote you give a bigger mandate to the winner, you may not like.
    This election is the perfect example. If you hate Hillary, you have to vote for Trump. If you don’t her majority is one vote bigger. If her majority is too big, she has a mandate to do anything. If it is a close race in the popular vote she doesn’t get the same leeway. You have to vote to provide the checks and balances.

    When he says I’ll vote the other way to cancel your vote, if I don’t vote, your candidate wins anyway and you don’t get a chance to cancel out someone else’s vote.

    That said, pulling the lever for Trump is getting harder and harder. Hillary is heading into Super Mandate territory.

  133. No One says:

    And then Mike Rowe suggested people download and read the free book Economics in one Lesson by Henry Hazlitt. I agree.
