Hello, to all. As I have said too often before "Oh, my--how the time flies by." We are already halfway through November. Let's see what I find on the 'net.
Here is one reason why I think anyone who believes the economy is "improving" is smoking something--or cherry picking the data. The most telling part of the statistics is the 1 in 5 25-34 year-olds are "disconnected" from both the job market and school. Add that to the stats I saw a couple of months ago which indicate that an even higher proportion of the 16-24 year-olds are in the same situation.
I saw the story on the morning news that Wal-Mart had reported lower than expect sales during the third quarter. Then I found this on Huffington Post. So the biggest corporate welfare queen is blaming cuts in food stamps for its dismal showing. I wonder how many of their employees got a "pay" cut with the benefit cut? Why would I even think such a thing? Take a look here. As I learned a long time ago, ethical is not a synonym for legal.
