The numbers are out and you would think they would have given the Nobel Prize for Economics, to G.W.Bush. Only 20 thousand jobs lost last month, and all the news sites are brimming with upbeat happy-happy-joy-joy reviews of the economy. Why? because in March there were 80k lost; in Feb. 75k; and in January another 75k bit the dust.
You do the math on that folks, that’s a quarter of a million jobs, lost, since Jan. 1st 2008 and the only things going up are the inflation rate, the foreclosures, the suicide rate, the price of gas at the pump (not oil production… for SOME reason it seems that our president can’t convince OPEC to increase production to reduce costs. Now I wonder why?), and the profit margins of Big Oil (oh, yeah. That could have something to do with it).
