I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Ya know the census needs 700,000 workers and pays $22/hr.
I dig the employment news, including the fact the the labor force is expanding while unemployment is dropping a bit.
However, this is small beans in the real economic world which sees the US Treasury losing it's AAA bond rating, a massively expensive entitlement program being piled on top of two already bankrupt entitlement programs, and Obama's proposed spending leading the CBO conclude that deficits will amount to 90% of GDP by 2019.
Lets maintain some perspective here...shall we?
My experience of Politicians and their antics lead me to believe that whatever 'good' news will come out between now and the Midterms, the news afterward will be so dire that people should remember what they thought before 'CHANGE' and the actuality after 'CHANGE'!
What I would be delighted to see would be a breakdown of these 162,000 'New' jobs, as for example:-
Manufacturing = ?
Services = ?
Health = ?
Census = 48,000
Government = ?
Retail = ?
Catering = ?
This would then give us a good idea of how well the American economy is emerging from this Recession.
For America to begin healing, we need the Manufacturing to be of paramount importance because unless we can sell our production or Services we will only continue going downhill.
