I pine for those days when companies were firing 750,000 employees per month and my stock investment dropped by 50%. Now, people are working and my investments have risen by 100%. Obama is the devil incarnate! Thanks, Obama.

windigo- Most educated people realize the Unemployment numbers are completely manipulated and bear no legitimacy. 200,000 jobs were added in Oct. and the UE rate went up from 7.2 to 7.3%. Then, 203,000 jobs were added in Nov. and the rate mysteriously drops a whopping .3% to 7.0%! Anyone who can look at things objectively can see this doesn't add up.

The truth is this: 1.consistant strength?? Where does that come from? cheap jobs that pay poorly and will disappear by the end of January? This whole economy is set to de-rail before you even know it. 2. "We're seeing good numbers" says Kinahan. Really?? Read above and then tell the people who lost good jobs to now work as a hamburger flipper. Canards all around and figures lie and liars figure.
