Change you can bereave in

I know, I know. He’s only been on the job for two months. Give him a chance, give him a chance.

I’ve seen enough. Actually I had seen enough halfway through the campaign, but that’s another story.

We are hemmhoraging jobs like a suicidal hemophiliac with a razor blade in an empty room.

Reuters is reporting that US job losses in March totaled 742 thousand.

If that’s not bad enough, they also report that February job losses have been revised to total 706 thousand jobs, up from the original 697 thousand functioning members of society – and the economy.

That’s one and one half million jobs that your friends and neighbors – or perhaps even you – can no longer rely on. I myself just took a pay cut of about a thousand dollars a year. Coupled with the predictable increase in health benefits, which I never use and cost me more than six thousand dollars per year, I’ve lost thirteen hundred dollars in income this year.

I won’t include January’s job losses so I don’t have to hear that two thirds of the losses occured on “Bush’s watch”.

Don’t laugh – you know it’s true.

And we wonder why folks can’t pay their mortgages.
