    Re: Jobless Claims Cast a Pall Over Job Market

    about two-thirds of employment gains come from the small business sector
    it is that segment of our economy which has been unable to gain access to capital. in fact, renewal of credit lines are frequently being denied
    meanwhile, that trillion dollar transfer of wealth from the wage earning taxpayer to the multi-national banks is being spent in the form of major loans overseas
    never have so few owed so much to so many
    Obama better figure out a way to infuse the small business sector with liquidity if he does not want to be a one term president
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    That's not what I see. I see those who are of the economic right trying to highlight basic truths and transparency involved in the numbers, while left-leaning ideologues use blind faith to read almost cryptic signs that force them to preach about a sure-signed recovery to the point that it validates their 2008 votes. They know the crow-eating involved when they realize their poster child in the Oval Office didn't come through with jack of what he promised, not that he promised a whole lot.

    Nobody is rooting for the economy to fail and for the country to go into perpetual recession. There are just some who can see things and call a spade a spade without getting butthurt about their political ethos.

    Not only that....its the same folk that are trying to convince people that the economy isn't recovering despite every economic indicator that it is.

    The right-wing is desperate to try to keep things looking bad because it is their only hope in November.

    Hmm. Sounds like 2002-2003-2004 all over again.

    From the OP:

    "While we're in a period of recovery, it's going to be very rocky ride back."

    In what way?

    The economy was beginning to decline. That was the beginning of GWB's recession.

    2002-2003-2004 was the period of recovery from the Clinton recession.
    Whenever anyone pointed out good economic news, the BDS left were quick to say "nuh-uh!" as loud as they could.

    If you don't have a job, and can't get one, then there's no need for an economic indicator.

    And November, I'm sorry to tell you, is already in the bag for Republicans. The Dems are going to take huge hits, including a lot of people who've been running your party for a long, long time.

    But why is that a good thing? Republicans are no better then democrats at governance. They're both as money grabbing, lying cheats as eachother. So you can vote in one party that will screw you over, and another party that will screw you over.
