    John 21:14-17
    New International Version (NIV)
    14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead. 15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” 16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” 17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep!"

    Thanks to Wall Street, the average American’s income is up more than 10% since Obama took office. (Of course, the median income is down by about 10%.) Someone wrote that the median is a fake statistic only used to mislead people, and I’m sure he has a lot of experience with statistics. Obviously, if you’ll just be average and stay off the median, you’ve got 10% more income now.


    I have to agree with the comment that appeared a couple of days ago. The median tells you absolutely nothing. Except the median, of course.


    Come to think of it, the average doesn’t tell you anything, either. Except the average.


    And when the average and the median are different, you know something is all skewed up.

    As long as the keep feeding the cow phony money it will fly. Shut off the money and pop will go that bubble. Obama is just making the cheap money cheaper. Now is just a matter of how big the bubble will be.

    mean median or mode? does it really matter when Obama’s agenda is to pump it up to make it look better on paper. In the real world the guy on the Street just wants a job! Obama promised shovels that were not ready and magic green jobs.
    Please name 1 way Obama has gotten out of the private sector in order to produce JOBS!

    Mode does tell you how much the largest number of people in the base are earning, which does reflect more accurately how most folks are doing. Mean is the point at which half earn more, half less. “Average” is the LEAST VIABLE “statistic” relative to "How is “Average Joe” doing in the economy, compared to Kochs, Adelson, Waltons, or Gates, Soros, Buffett.(Take the guy with the shopping cart, add Buffett’s income, divide by 2= guy with shopping cart is obviously in the 1% of the world in income, right?)

    You’re slipping. This is where you’re supposed to say the economy is doing terrific under Obama because the stock market is up, and ignore that the people you listed’s income is up because the Fed is pumping $85 Billion into the Stock Market every month, which only increases in “income gap”. And although this policy falls on Obama, in 3 short years you will re-write history and be writing that it was the Republican’s policy, Bush’s policy, or Reagan’s policy.

    that Bull is going to have a hard landing.
    The Dow is up mostly due to the Obama/Treasury regular $85 Billion in Monopoly Money. Biggest Bubble yet.

    or you are math challenged.
    But I agree stock prices mean nothing right now due to QEinfinity and beyond. all the pension plan, 401K, 403B money has to go some where to show gains. so the stock market, even people who should be in bonds aren’t because returns(outside of corporate) on bonds are didelly.

    Median, sorry, michael, but the mode still tells how the most people are really doing. Hmm, as “median” type, still keep swapping, but I can’t remember folk’s names, though other facts stick forever in the brain and pop back out. (Old age?)

    Hey, at least the guy has healthcare right? At least when he can get on, and it only has a 5000 dollar deductible! He should be happy.
