Houston ranked No. 4 on Forbes’ list of “The U.S. Regions to Watch in 2014.” According to the report, Houston had a gross domestic product growth of 12.3% between 2007 and 2012, and a population growth of 11.5% during that time. Between 2007 and October 2013, Houston saw a job growth of 9.2%, though median household income is still down 4.7 percent from prerecession levels. Austin — which recorded a 21.7 percent for GDP growth — was first on the list, followed by San Antonio. Dallas was listed as number 6. The list was compiled based on research from Praxis Strategy Group that looked at eight metrics for the nation’s 52 largest metropolitan statistical areas. Forbes reports that a separate survey found Houston is one of the cities that has gained the most young college graduates since 2006, and the city is expected to add 140,000 new households by 2017 — the largest increase in the nation.
The graph shows a couple of glaring facts. 1) Notice what happens to the unemployment rate right after the Bush tax cuts, they fell like a rock. Tax cuts produced jobs as they always do. 2) This shows perfectly the impact of Obama's policies. The recession ended in June 2009 yet look what happened afterwards, specifically median household income. The numbers are worse than during the actual recession.
Video shows Arizona police shooting man with hands over his head By Juan Verala Luz 1 February 2014 Last week a local news station in Eloy, Arizona ran footage of police shooting an unarmed man, Manuel Orosco Longoria, in the back while he had his hands in the air, contradicting police claims that he was attempting to draw a weapon. The video was released two weeks after the shooting. On January 14th Pinal County sheriff deputies and Eloy police officers pursued 40-year-old Manuel Orosco Longoria after he failed to pull over at a traffic stop. A 45-minute chase ensued, eventually ending with Longoria stepping out of the car. Police proceeded to shoot him to death as he had his hands up. Following the incident, Pinal County sheriff Paul Babeu claimed that Longoria attempted to brandish a weapon after stepping out of the car. “A deputy felt the suspect was reaching for the gun he reportedly had,” he commented, “so he then fired two rounds from his department-issued patrol rifle.” Subsequent revelati ...

In Owsley County, Ky., a community of about 5,000, residents earn the lowest median household income in the country outside of Puerto Rico, according to the U.S. Census.

Fact & Opinion Fact- Since Jan 2009 median household income has dropped $3,827. Fact- Poverty level increased from 13.2% to 15%. A record 46.5 million Americans are now considered poor.

   In honor of tomorrow's big game, we break it down for you:     X’s and Ow!’s: Six facts about football players, taxes and the ACA01.31.14 We've been thinking a lot about taxes and healthcare, and our anticipation of Sunday's championship game brought some things to mind.  The gridiron is many things to many people, and players generally take the risks in stride while we enjoy the excitement. But like any of us, players need to think long and hard about their health coverage, and not all of them have it made for life just because they played in the NFL. Consider the following:    Not everyone - and certainly not every player - is equally lucky.  Running backs, for instance, are distinguished by two troubling facts: they are most likely of all NFL player groups to get hurt and they (along with safeties and kickers) are among those in the NFL with the lowest average salaries.  And doubtless because of the physical stress and their time on the Injured Reserve (IR) list, running backs have a ...

Saturday, February 1, 2014 Fort Thomas Named Top 5 Place to Live in Kentucky The Movoto Blog, which is a real estate website that brands itself as the lighter side of real estate, named Fort Thomas the 5th best place in Kentucky.While this isn't breaking news to the people that live here, it was nice to text my buddies from Louisville and Lexington with the tagline, "Read it and weep, boys." Here's what the writer, Natalie Grigson had to say about the Fort (Shoutout to members Fort Thomas Coffee and Cobblestone Cafe): With over 3,400 total amenities, Fort Thomas certainly ranked as one of the places in our study with the most going on—and a good thing, too, because with a median household income of just over $60,000, it seems like residents here can afford to have a good time. What does a good time look like in Fort Thomas? Well, you’d have to ask a resident, but if you ask me, starting the day with a cup of joe from Fort Thomas Coffee, grabbing some brunch at the Cobblestone Cafe, and then maybe chec ...
"From 2007 to 2012, the places that saw median household income grow were predominantly energy producing areas. Let's approve the Keystone XL pipeline which would create many jobs for Pennsylvania-based contractors and suppliers and allow the production of oil and gas on more federal lands to diminish our dependence on foreign energy." - Senator Pat Toomey.
As much as I wish this was made up, here are some stats - More than half of the Owsley County’s population -- 52 percent -- received food stamps in 2011, the most recent yearly number available. The county, which in 2012 was 97.6 percent non-Hispanic white and had 4,722 residents, had a median household income of $19,344, well below the Kentucky median of $42,248 and the $52,762 figure nationally, U.S. census data shows. Roughly four in 10 residents live below the poverty line.
To be in the worldwide wealthiest 1% you have to earn $34,000. The US median household income is about $53,000. Before you whine about the 1%, realize just by being in America you're probably part of it.
Despite a population 10% that of Cincinnati, the mayor of Lima makes nearly as much (86%) as the Cincy mayor and 2.5 times that of the Dayton mayor. The Lima mayor makes nearly 4 times the median household income of Lima residents, 23% of which live at or below the poverty line.

I ran across a very interesting statistic. According to the US Census bureau, when comparing 2000 vs 2012 median household income in the USA (adjusted for inflation) 8 states have increased by an average of 4.5%, 42 states have decreased by an average of 9% and only one "district" has increased over 24%! Here's a hint: Donkeys and Elephants live in big white houses. When Bruce sang "we take care of our own" it appears that only 68 square miles of the county was listening. Go figure.
Doing some research.. I see all the posts about how we grew up being taught respect (Or at least fear of punishment) I certainly was. Of course I had a fulltime parent and a Part time parent (In other words Dad worked) so I started crunching some numbers and hitting some statistics. What i've found makes a strong case for not only why we have a lot more problems, a lot less parental control and also a lot more poor people. According to the US Census Bureau, the median individual salary was $4418 in 1955 In 2012 the median Household Income was $50,100 1955 Minimum wage was .75 cents an hour. 2012 Minimum wage $7.25 1955 the Average home cost was $15,400 to own a home not rent one. The grand old American dream. 2012 the Average home cost $151,000 The vast majority of Families had one wage earner not two. So one parent was always at home for the kids.

Super Bowl XLVIII: How Denver and Seattle Match Up as Places to Live Ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday, the good people at Redfin -- an online brokerage firm -- have put together a helpful side-by-side comparison of Denver and Seattle. Because, when you get right down to it, this game is about more than the Broncos offense against the Seahawks defense. It's about two cities. It's about two ways of life. It's the West vs. the Pacific Northwest. It's "South Park" vs. "Frasier." It's legalized pot vs. -- well, both have legalized pot, so scratch that. As you make your predictions for Super Bowl XLVIII, here's your birds-eye-view of the cities themselves: What each town offers, how the fans live, and, yes -- how some of the players live too. For starters, both teams hail from highly-educated, highly-active cities of roughly 600,000. About half the residents in both cities own their own home, but buying a spot in Seattle will cost you quite a bit more. In 2013, Seattle's median home price was $403,402, while D ...
New York Beat….. POOR THEM – “Why the rich are freaking out,” by Ben White, author of Politico’s “Morning Money”: “The co-founder of one the nation’s oldest venture capital firms fears a possible genocide against the wealthy. Residents of [the] Upper East Side say the progressive mayor didn’t plow their streets as a form of frosty revenge. And the co-founder of Home Depot recently warned the Pope to pipe down about economic inequality. … Economists, advisers to the wealthy and the wealthy themselves describe a deep-seated anxiety that the national … mood is turning against the super-rich in ways that ultimately could prove dangerous and hard to control. … On a practical level, the wealthy are jumping at shadows. … Much of the current anxiety is also driven by the precarious nature of the recovery.” --MILLIONAIRES FOR PRE-K -- Real estate developer Bruce Ratner, in an interview with Bloomberg TV, said: “Well, it’s just a minimum amount of money.

Top of the list for the most affordable and growing places to live No. 1: Austin, Texas (57 points) Cost of living index: 102.1 Median household income: $52,431 Unemployment rate: 4.7 percent State income tax: 0 percent Combined sales tax: 8.25 percent No. 1 is, to little surprise, another Texan city. One of the biggest draws to Austin is the jobs picture, including an unemployment rate of 4.7 percent -- well below the national rate. Median income is relatively high, at $52,431. The city has a reputation for being business-friendly, catering to startups as well as larger companies such as Dell. Forbes reports that such employers have made the Austin metro area the nation’s leader in new technology jobs.
America is not on the right track. Since the president took office, median household income is down nearly $4,000, job opportunities are less during this protracted time of unemployment, and the American people are concerned for their future and the future of their children. The president called for 2014 to be a ‘year of action.’ I urge the president to take action on several items, including the Workforce Investment Act, which I’m have been working on in a bipartisan manner in the Senate. The Workforce Investment Act hasn’t been reauthorized in six years. We ought to pass this legislation to expand job training and opportunity. Additionally, we need Trade Promotion Authority granted to the president so he can initiate further and aggressive trade agreements around the world. Furthermore, we need to address Obamacare, which is inflicting a great deal of pain on the American people, especially in terms of higher premiums, cancelled coverage and fewer choices. Obamacare is also causing Americans to ...
5. Fayetteville, Ark. Cost of Living: 14% below average City Population: 75,102 [NOTE: about 32,000 of which are college students] Median Household Income: $35,970 Median Home Value: $177,900 This low-cost city lies in the northwestern corner of Arkansas, a short hop from Missouri, Oklahoma and the Ozark National Forest. Fayetteville is best known for being home to the University of Arkansas, a major local employer. While salaries aren't big, unemployment in the Fayetteville area is below the national average. It doesn't hurt that Wal-Mart is based in nearby Bentonville. Paychecks stretch further thanks to Fayetteville's particularly low housing, transportation and utility costs.
