Yes We Have No Jobs Today, Dec. 17, 2008
From priests to illegal gardeners who are repatriating to Mexico, around the world the numbers are starting to amaze: In the U.S. alone, to a first approximation, about 4000 jobs every hour of every day–every time I have taken the time to count the first 50 or so entries on Google; only a fraciton of the small business job losses make it to Google, so what are the real numbers?
Job losses around the world? On an hourly basis, perhaps 10,000, 20,000, 50,000? After all, America only has 4% of the world’s population; thus, if we’re losing 4,000 an hour, well…you see that I’m being conservative.
We (some of us) have no idea what trouble were in…

Report: Laid-Off IT Workers Will Go Rogue In 2009
… started exploiting the public’s fears, Finjan’s prediction adds a new dynamic: the rise in cybercrime will be facilitated by laid-off IT workers. …
My heart goes out to those poor Goldman Sachs employees who have to live off of $363,654!
Did I mention Chrysler? All Employees. GM? Idling volt efforts and various plants. Ford? Extended plant closures. Talk about ripple effect. I wonder how the "government" is going to vaporize those additions to next months jobs numbers? I bet a fair portion of those workers will not be coming back.
And, of course, the numbers beat "expectations" today. I am fairly sure that the only people who believe that…wait a minute! Not even the person who typed the number into the report believes that. You have to wonder how dumb the people are that are perpetrating this masquerade such that they assume the millions of unemployed Americans and their families and friends are going to believe such horseshi*!
I ran across this article ( http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story/Initial-jobless-claims-fall-21000/story.aspx?guid=%7BBA822582%2DE15A%2D416F%2DAD27%2DC3F4AD2A641A%7D#comments )on Market Watch; the posted comments regarding the government numbers are telling. Apparently, the "government’s" fuzzy number crew are the only people who believe that The People still believe…
I think when the reality of all the deception goes mainstream–with a vengeance, things like, oh, let’s say the dollar, the stock market…and let’s not forget the bond bubble–yes, these three, for starters, are going to look as if they have On/Off switches; switches which many people will be groping for in the dark.
