Mission Accomplished!

So according to Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke The Recession Is Over. So why then is it that:
Jobless rate tops 10 pct. for first time since '83

[My emphasis]

Fewer unemployment claims one month compared to a prior month still means more unemployment claims than jobs.

Fuck me.

Did anyone see the series premiere of "V" a couple nights ago? Notice the resemblance to the Nazi rise in power and - call me a nut, paranoid, whatever you will - the current administration? I certainly did.

All smiles and so-called good will, but at what cost?

Just remember this: The government is not a stand-alone, self-sufficient entity. It doesn't physically produce anything. It cannot give you anything that it hasn't taken from someone else.

Hell yeah! Let's pass the cap-and-tax bill so we can effectively double the cost of living too!

All media outlets have been trying to tell us that 'we're starting to see signs of recovery' for several months now. Funny, it felt like brainwashing then, and it sure feels like it now...

You get that feeling too, eh?
