The Flint River Water Project is ongoing. 

Thank you.

An unemployment rate of 4.9 is unheard of. We need a minimum wage of $15.00 per hour.

The U.S. labor market (click here) continues to show signs of gradual strengthening, with newly released government data showing the economy added 161,000 jobs last month. Annual wage growth surged to levels not seen since the financial crisis, while the unemployment rate dipped to 4.9 percent in October from 5 percent the previous month.

While monthly job gains for October were slightly below expectations -- economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had expected U.S. employers to add 173,000 new jobs last month -- the Labor Department on Friday also revised upward its estimates for job creation in August and September, adding a combined 44,000 jobs. Some economist also cautioned that Hurricane Matthew may have temporarily prevented businesses from adding to their payrolls....

I think it is more than the USA elections that have the global markets nervous. The UK Courts found that Brexit has to move to the Parliament. That is amazing to me. The democracy in the UK really isn't all that much of a democracy, now is it? The people passed a national referendum and courts demand the Parliament to approve. Where is that democratic? 

I suppose is a Michigan Governor can override a referendum the Parliament is entitled to do the same.

I think more then the reversal of Brexit by a British court, the world realized the FBI wants anarchy over and above orderly transfer of power in an election. That is scary. The heretics in the FBI worries the global economy more than any other aspect of the current state of the global economy.

Global equity markets (click here) slipped on Friday on investor fears about the outcome of Tuesday's U.S. presidential election, while oil prices fell on worries about surging inventories and whether OPEC members will adhere to planned production limits.

Election-related jitters sent the U.S. dollar to a more than one-month low against the safe-haven Swiss franc, while weakness in oil prices raised concerns about low inflation and pushed U.S. Treasury prices higher.

A dismal outing for Asian and European share indexes weighed on MSCI's 47-country "All World" index .MIWD00000PUS, which was down 0.43 percent, finding little support from Wall Street.

The S&P 500 .SPX ended lower for a ninth straight day, the longest losing streak for the benchmark index in more than 35 years, as investors stayed on edge ahead of the uncertain U.S. election.

Investors have been unnerved by signs of a tightening presidential race between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump....

I mailed my ballot. I like paper ballots. I like mechanical voting machines better.

Federal authorities (click here) say they are concerned about the potential for cyber attacks that could cause confusion on Election Day.
“We are very concerned about attempts to cause confusion," one Department of Homeland Security official said. The official pointed out that it’s important to separate concerns over manipulating the official vote count -- which they see as unlikely if not impossible -- from the threat to cause confusion....
Naively I thought mail in ballots were postage paid. Not. It cost $1.19 to mail the ballot first class. That is not right. It is like voting is an option for the mail in ballot. All absentee ballots should be postage paid.

In the USA pedophilia is hidden in the human trafficking statistics.

Janet Basilan (click here) found herself on a plane to the United States in January 2009, reluctant to leave her son and husband behind in the Philippines, but eager, like the six other teachers on her flight, to begin working in the American public education system so that she could send money back home. Basilan told NBC News the person who recruited her had promised she would earn five times the amount she currently made as a high school science teacher in the Philippines. All she had to do was pay travel and settlement fees.
Basilan said she borrowed close to $18,000 in loans from her bank and several loan sharks, certain she'd be able to pay everything back with her new job. But instead of going to work, Basilan spent two months confined to a house in Maryland with more than 20 other teachers before learning that there weren't any jobs waiting for them.
There never were, she said....

The FBI has been mostly ineffective in human trafficking, especially in the area of pedophilia.

She was just 17 when she got into prostitution (click here) – but she didn’t know she was a victim, at the time. She had been raped and beaten by her father since she was 12 years old. She was desperate for a breakthrough as a model.
“I didn’t understand that it was an upscale call girl,” the sex trafficking victim whose identity is kept anonymous said in a Federal Bureau of Investigation video. “They used us young people because ... we’re young and we’re naive, and nine out of 10 times they’re right.”
By the time she realized what she got herself into, she had been beaten and starved. She left believing that the pimp was possibly going to kill her either way....

If a person is wealthy enough pedophilia can be hidden with cooperative minors and parents.

The ex-wife of disgraced Subway (click here) pitchman Jared Fogle is suing the sandwich chain, charging that top executives knew of his pedophilia as early as 2004 and should have notified authorities.

Katie McLaughlin divorced Fogle after he pleaded guilty to federal charges of child pornography and having sex with minors. She alleges in the suit that she and her children suffered emotional distress because Fogle’s behavior did not become publicly known before she married him in 2010....

Around 7,000 people in Germany (click here) have sought aid or counseling and therapeutic treatment for pedophilia in the last 11 years, according to data from a project to help pedophiles. The doctors involved in the initiative believe that pedophilia “is not curable” but “can be treated.”

The project dubbed “Don’t offend” (Kein Täter werden) was launched in 2005 in Berlin, Germany. It was funded by Berlin’s top university hospital, Charite.
The goal is “the establishment of a comprehensive, nationwide therapeutic offer,” the statement on the project’s website said....

Indonesia (click here) wants to “wipe out” pedophilia and sexual crimes in the country by reducing the sex drive and libido of offenders. President Joko Widodo revealed the government sets a new law of chemical castration as the punishment for all sexual crimes.....
