We Are Forever in Your Debt, Thank You Mr. President

The unemployment rate should steadily leg down as everyone falls off the radar and doesn't get counted anymore. Soon our real rate of unemployment- that 23% or so will just drop to zero.

By election time, Obama can say he has saved the country in another one of his rousing speeches. Maybe say, without him, it would have been far worse.

The unemployment rate here in Stanislaus County is officially at 17.5% which means it's probably above 25% when you consider those that have taken early retirement or just dropped off the rolls because their benefits ran out. That means that 1 out of 4 workers is out of work. My cousin, a proud man and a journeyman plumber, is relying on recylables and poached deer to feed his family while his wife barely brings in enough to pay the rent (they already lost their house) and the utilities.
And Obama says things are getting better?

I just don't get it WC. Like the 30 million people out of work don't exist and they are ignored and marginalized...while those pricks on Wall St party likes its 1999 and play with make believe money. They just ain't interested in fixing this- easier to just ignore it.

No way is this gonna end well. No way. Thanks, love your site...catch it every day
