Lack of regulation of financial institutions and how they do business put us in the hole we are in.

Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank are the culprits along with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

The "biggest" SUPPERFUND PROJECT IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICA IS IN THE "WHITE HOUSE" STARTING FROM 1913 TO TODAY. But not JFK's time in office.

Unfortunately, the much publicized "Unemployment" number is the rather optimistic "U3" which bears little relationship to classic unemployment, and has been modified year after year to give lower and lower numbers. The BLS "U6" number is closer to what classically would be considered unemployment. One could argue for "U5" instead of "U6" - but the manipulations make U6 come out closer to what you see in historical numbers.
