My Take On Today's Jobs Report

Aside from the fact that - for the most part - the report is nearly completely meaningless because it's so blatanly manipulated, here is a chart that is so horrifying, you can probably enlarge it and use it as one of your Halloween decorations.  Happy Halloween those who are unemployed and actually would like to find a job because they're sick of living off the Government tit:

I may have a post tomorrow if I don't get too distracted by all the great college football on!


  1. In get you're point, but most unemployed don't get tit money. Once you're claim expires it's good bye sucker.Then you have to read crap like your's.

    LOL. You could go join in the "Occupy" protests...I may go down to the Capitol this weekend to check it out. Smashmouth is playing on Sunday.

  3. There is a lot to protest...

    Harry M. Markopolos

    In this King World News exclusive interview, Harry Markopolos the Whistleblower who brought down Bernie Madoff’s $65 billion Ponzi scheme reached out to KWN with the latest fraud he and his team have uncovered. Markopolos stated, “The Bank of New York is going to go down, Eric. Between Bank of New York Mellon and State Street, these two institutions have stolen between $6 to $10 billion from tens of millions of Americans retirement savings accounts. It’s been a hell of a crime spree for the bank, but now they are being brought to justice.”

    Markopolos also told KWN, “The New York Attorney General filed suit on Tuesday (against Bank of New York Mellon) for stealing money from pension funds on currency transactions. This theft has been from tens of millions of Americans, policemen, firemen, librarians, municipal workers, judges and the list goes on and on and they’ve been doing it for decades.

    At this pace Harry Markopolos and his team are fast becoming synonymous with fighting corruption and crime on a massive scale. Who knows, they may be this centuries new “Elliott Ness” and legendary team of law enforcement agents nicknamed “The Untouchables.”

  4. Take for example, Cain’s support of Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Most conservatives disdain TARP, and my guess is that — just as many of Perry’s early supporters were unaware of some of Perry’s positions — many of Cain’s new supporters don’t realize he supported TARP.

    And Cain didn’t just support it in the abstract. In 2008, he wrote passionately in support of the program, arguing: “Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem.”

    Cain’s service as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in 1995 and 1996 might also be an issue for some tea party conservatives (though it also might help him with others).

  5. German bank reclaims 50 trains from Bulgaria over payment row

    The 50 diesel and electric trains, which were leased in 2003, form the only modern component of Bulgaria's creaking fleet of trains, with the bulk of locomotives and rolling stock dating back to the communist era.

    BDZ was not immediately available to comment on the report as the company's management was holding a new round of talks with the trade unions on Friday in a bid to prevent the strike.

    A failure to resolve the problem with KfW would "blow to pieces" the whole schedule of the railways since the new trains are vital for commuters around the European Union country's main cities, Trud reported.

  7. John Hussman: Here Are 4 Things That Every Wall Street Protester Should Know

    * “Failure” means bondholders shouldn’t be guaranteed every penny.

    * The Federal Reserve’s purchases of Fannie and Freddie debt were illegal.

    * Creating shell companies like Maiden Lane to buy bad Wall Street assets was illegal.

    * Policies of bailouts only misallocate capital and exacerbate the wealth skew.

  8. Wait til they figure out how those gold bars were labeled...

    Authorities Shut Wal-Mart Stores in Southwestern China

    BEIJING—Authorities in China's southwestern city of Chongqing ordered Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to temporarily close some stores after accusing it of fraudulently labeling ordinary pork as more-expensive organic pork, in the latest hitch to the company's China ambitions.
