Jobless claims fall; new-home sales up 27% over a year ago

From Reuters:

The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell last week, giving a clearer sign that the labor market is healing after wild fluctuations in claims data at the beginning of the month.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 23,000 to a seasonally adjusted 369,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday.

The prior week’s figure was revised slightly higher to show 4,000 more applications than previously reported.

A Labor Department analyst said all states submitted data for the report and that there was nothing unusual in the raw data. The analyst said the data showed no signs of the factors that had appeared to generate sharp swings in the claims reading over the prior two weeks.”


From the WSJ’s Marketwatch:

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Sales of new single-family homes in the U.S. rose in September to the highest rate in more than two years, according to government data released Wednesday that confirms the improving picture in the housing market.

Sales of new single-family homes in the U.S. rose 5.7% in September to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 389,000, the highest pace since April 2010, when the first-time homebuyer tax credit was initially due to expire, the Commerce Department said.

“Though the level of new-home sales remains very low, this report adds to the evidence of housing market recovery,” said analysts at RDQ Economics….

The median sales price in September shot up 11.7% year-on-year to $242,400.

According to the Commerce Department, new-home sales are up 27.1 percent from a year ago.

Well, it’s all a big cheat to steal the election. Anybody can look around and see that houses ain’t selling—tho trailers is doing pretty good. And everybody knows there ain’t no jobs out there.

There ought to be a law to keep guvmint from releasing good numbers right before a election—unless there’s a Republican in the White House, of course.

Of all the dirty tricks—twelve days before we can vote this Kenyan Socialist brown man out of office we vote and they come out with bull-dada like this! Our guvmint ought to be ashamed and Bookman ought to be horse-whipped for printing this garbage. I’m telling you, there’s going to be bad times until Romney takes office January 20 or a Republican gets elected in 2016, whichever comes first.

This “thuggery” you speak of consisted of perhaps a few sexist online jokes told at her expense. Otherwise she got virtually everything she had coming to her from the moment she opened her yap at the Republican National Convention and ran with the “I don’t know what a community ORGANIZER is” BS.

Amazing, just as I forecast on this blog, 18 months after the crazeist House of Representatives in history was replaced by a conservative House, the economy starts to show some signs of recovery. Imagine how fast and far it would have recovered with a conservative senate and a conservative executive. Or whether there would ever have been an economic collapse if the somewhat-conservative House and senate had not been displaced in 2007.

I really am not comfortable with Mitt or O’bama in the Whitehouse. But know what O’bama has done for the past 4 years. And its not enough. House sales up? Jobless numbers has decreased? You will not prove that in the area I live in. And PLEASE stop with the race crap. I DON’T CARE IF THE PRESIDENT IS GREEN WITH PINK POKER DOTS, If he can do the job leave him alone. All you people are doing with that because”he’s black” crap is proving what O’bama’s enemies said 4 years ago when he was running. “After he’s elected every time you critize him his supporters will all say its because he’s black”. It does the president NO GOOD.

“It is a beautiful day outside.”

This month has been perfect.

Not too hot and humid and not too cold.

Just right.

st simons- Gallup is admitting nothing, but appears to be correcting daily. Just a coincidence, i’m sure heheh

You mean they take polls daily. Wow. I didn’t see that one coming.

I guess they need to go back to oversampling Democrats at record levels to make it “legitimate”…

How tough an issue is rape birth? How rare is it? How many rape births per year? How many rape-motivated abortions per year? The very words themselves are an abomination and hard to text. And this is how you appeal to Tea Party voters? No wonder gaffe after gaffe occurs.

Here’s politics in America in 2012. Raped? Choose Life. (Retort would be something like, “Conservatives choose rape!”). That’s not what I said. Yes you did. Read the transcript. Liar. You stink. You need meds. You live in your mom’s basement.

Every day, the comments on this blog read like that. Truants from our charter schools?

getalife- cons are still miserable

??? You’re obviously confused again.

Liberalism: not going to be happy until everyone is as miserable as I am!
