    I have no idea what she's talking about, but I must of really got her panties in a wad for her to come to this thread and try to drum up something from several weeks? months? ago. Did it ever happen?

    Apparently she's been angry about it for some time.

    That's really good but we have to really ramp up on job creation before part 2 of the housing crisis begins, otherwise we may be in store for a double dip recession.

    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?

    Yes. In this case, it's all about trajectory. Things are looking up ... hopefully we can maintain that momentum.

    Trajectory, sadly, also applies to the debt problems.

    The real number is 123,000 jobs, since the temp census jobs don't really count in my opinion. However this is a very good sign. So what is your opinion, are we on the road to recovery or not? What do you base it on?

    Personally, I am hopeful, but I am not prepared to call anything at this time.
    Hiring for the Census started about the same time. Fancy that. What's going to happen when the Census is finished?

    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.
