I am coming to one conclusion after browsing back through the 176 plus pages of posts on this thread. It is, that the opening posting laid out a fact. and that fact is that employers added NO NET JOBS in the month of August. Also as of late this supposed 'summer of recovery' is a huge flop. Nothing has recovered, and I am thinking that we never left the recession.
In all that, Demo's blame repubs, and repubs blame demo's. and on, and on, and on.....pfft!!!
But, if we never left the recession, one has to ask why is that? We have been in a Keynesian experiment since January of 2009. It has clearly failed, and no increase of the Keynes model is going to magically work.
2012 is going to be a referendum on this no matter what demo's say....For it not to be would be dishonest, and go against every 2nd term election this country has ever held. Obama is failing in an epic fashion, and one year and three months from now should he not address his failures and actually start adopting proven policies that work, he will lose.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

If I don't get to share an office like last time, I'll just collect food at churches and keep on the welfare dole. I'm not going back to the fryer! I'd rather be a bum!
Well, I don't know about you, but I am starting to question all these numbers from different sources. They seem way too easily manipulated to fit arguments. You know what British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli in the 1800s said right? "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."
I don't think any of us have been told the real truth for quite a while now.
