    Default Last Weeks Jobs Report

    At the end of the day, we are all going to vote based on our pocket book.

    So here is some food for thought, as the number of unemployeed continues to decline, American's are going to not want to change Presidents.

    Now as the stockmarket rallies between now and the election, people are not going to want to change Presidents.

    I don't generally vote by what I think will help my pocket book, but by for who I feel best represents the America I wish to see. This is frequently not in my own best economic interest. (I generally vote Rep or Libertarian, and will NOT be voting for the current pres. even if every person in the US who wants a job is working and the DOW hits 15,000)
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
    (John Dewey)

    Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.

    Stan, I can only comment for myself, but I do know a lot of folks in the same or similar situations. I have been gainfully employed now for about 2 months. I am currently working about 50 hours a week and making about one quarter of what I earned before the crash. I can not afford to buy a home, definitely not much of a "consumer" of anything these days, I must carefully maintain my old vehicle so that I can get another 175,000 miles on it, I dare not get sick or injured as I can not afford any health insurance, and oh yeah, I will be lucky to get 15 hours a week once the ski season is over. So yep, I am off the "unemployed" rolls, but I do not see how I or the economy have been positively affected by that fact.

    Some fell off and some got on.

    Just wait until Obama is saying that we have a lot more to do, but without the republican's help we managed to get unemployment down to 7%. Now you can reelect me to 4 more years and I'll keeping fighting the fight for you, or you can vote for the crowd that put us in deepest recession in 3 generations. And by the way I'm a Christian and I believe that Jesus died for us.

    I think Obama need to run and run that Clint Eastwood comercial, too. Because he can take full credit for that and remind Americans how the republicans wanted to turn their back on Amercian workers.

    Hooverism does not work in a recession.

    Good luck in November

    Just like the Giants vs Patriots...I picked the Giants and I pick Obama! So soon it will be time to rumble....I hope you are ready to ride that Romney rollercoaster...he is so weak against Obama, and go ahead and keep pretending he is just reading a telecomter

    According to an article in the Wash Post today a 1.2 million net loss in the work force. They are there, just no longer counted. I can't help but wonder what your attitude would be should you be unfortunate enough to join them.
