Your turn now - Economy

Hiring in U.S. Slowed in May With 54,000 Jobs Added

"The Labor Department reported on last Friday that the nation added 54,000 nonfarm payroll jobs last month, after an increase of about 220,000 jobs in each of the three previous months. The gain in May was about a third of what economists had been forecasting. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, edged up to 9.1 percent from 9.0 percent in April."

Look, I'm tired of blaming our lack of jobs on politics. Politics already gets blamed for so many other things; like the erectile dysfunction one experiences at the mere thought of Michelle Bachman's name on a presidential ballot.

Isn't it time we quit blaming politics for all of society's problems? Look, this shit ain't gonna be over in another month or two, hell, we've been in this mess since the Fall of '08, which means this 'slump' has outlasted 2 of my 4 marriages. There will be no Christmas miracle this year and NEXT summer, it's 'Stacations' for the lot of you.

If you want to see our economy change then you're going to have to roll up your sleeves and hang a shingle of some sort and start generating income on your own… just like our ancestors did before learning how to take land from the natives.

Now I know this all sounds like it just might be a little too much work, believe me, I understand. But unless you know something that I don't, waiting for Amerika, Inc. to save the day is like waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve… by now, you're old enough to know better.

Seriously, the only way your government will help you now is if you're a millionaire… OR a country we have bombed, are bombing, or are eventually going to bomb.
