To see what the main stream media is saying that a recovery in in progress .  You have to wonder what the hell they are  looking at.  The official unemployment numbers keep dropping ever so slightly and tiny job gains are reported as a whoopee event. When any fool knows that you have to continually have over 200,000 jobs a month to just stay even.  That’s why anybody with a brain knows almost all of the official numbers are total bullshit..

A lot of folk with jobs aren’t doing too well either.  Consider that 1/3 of the country are either poor or low income.. 1000’s are living in tunnels, or tents and we seldom hear about them .  They are there and somehow stay alive and are continually rousted by police, who run them off probably to another tunnel or tent.. Instead if they would take the money and build tent cities and provide basic facilities  like water and toilets and trash collection it would no doubt be cheaper.  Check out this story for more details on the tunnel and tent people.  Sorry but the link thing ain’t working tonight . so cut and paste above address to read the story.

    Interesting post this morning, considering I just got done chatting with a friend who has bought into the whole idea that greed is good and the natural state of human nature. This is of course bullshit, but enough people have bought into it in the last 30 years that we’re now headed for the bottom, perhaps for good. My friend, who’s just an average middle class guy, believes people who “strive” are only receiving their just reward. He has no answer for the people who strive and don’t make it, other than to say they must not be trying hard enough. He thinks that somehow a more equitable distribution of income is going to take something from him, when the truth is the opposite. Needless to say, my friend has virtually no knowledge of economics, other than the pat sayings he’s picked up from the corporate media that serve the ultra rich. It makes me sad, sometimes I don’t really want to be friends with him, but he’s a decent guy, and I’m gonna continue to try to persuade him to think decently.

    Some people are STILL telling me the economy is getting better. They quote the deceptive media’s statements. “ABC said the job market is improving,” etc.
    I tell them I do not think so. I ask them if they are seeing things improving in there own circle of family and friends.
    ‘NO’ is always the answer.
    That seems to get them thinking.

    in ‘their’ own circle.
