    Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!

    Yeah boy!

    JOB GROWTH SURGES BY 312,000 IN DECEMBER

    Nonfarm payrolls surged by 312,000 in December. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting payroll growth of just 176,000.

    Wages jumped 3.2 percent from a year ago and 0.4 percent over the previous month. The year-over-year increase is tied with October for the best since April 2009.

    The unemployment rate rose to 3.9 percent as more workers joined the labor force.

    And this despite the Federal Reserve's almost heroic efforts to tank the economy.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    ... but wages lagged.
    “I think God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.” ― Oscar Wilde
    “You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” ― Anne Lamott
    “And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence” ― Bertrand Russell

    And since the super-wealthy control all of the money in the country, the economy, AND the government, that will never happen.

    If only we'd elected St. Hillary, we wouldn't be in this situation.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist
