What is a job? Reality v. Steele

Michael Steele, the new head of the repugs, has no idea of what he speaks - it's what we call gobbledegook

It's work? not a job? Huh? I'll bet he has a contract that has some end date. And working for the government is not a job? I have friends who work for the government and they think they have jobs.

And as for jobs created by businesses - they aren't doing so well are they?

Here's a new chart on job losses....note the steepness of the current line

So far it is a youch year!

and that is not good.....

Salmonella in peanut butter and peanut related products brought to you by a plant that did not care to whom the tainted stuff was sold. And they knew it was tainted....Murder charges please....

Schools looking to close the door because they are facing huge financial crunches. Thank you mr trickle down the toilet shrub.

More unemployed in January than ever before - and more to come as the year goes on. See the chart below for historical comparisons. But we really need to preserve tax cuts for the wealthy as it was such a good idea seeing what great prosperity it led to..

And the wingnuts yammering all over the "tubes" which their fearless leaders don't understand [note - how will they hear you since they don't know how to use the net?] And their problem? They are filled with so much hatred they can not see that 8 years of failed policy led to where we are - they want more failure - in their brain I guess if you hate so much you can't add. Failure plus more failure does not equal adds up to greater failure.

I learned a long time ago that hatred is an emotion that eats away at the one doing the hating in very destructive ways. And if you add that to the wingnut projection syndrome - we will have some very vile commentary coming from the right for the next 4 years.....

I guess when one is so removed from reality it's too long a road back to even try?
