    If jobless claimz are flat to slightly positive in the peak of hiring temp holiday labor then

    how about a big fat tax on Bezos? After all, the guy just cleared $200 million selling stock on the runnup from 218 to 250+, and the stock gives almost penniless earnings. Isn't that where the engineering of money has gone and what should be taxed? Certainly could make up alot of money taxing these paper gain get outs that is Bernanke/Geithner engineered. Of course, they won't do that because it makes too much sense: taxing someone who just made $200 million while showing no earning while Obama wants to go after anyone over $250,000 a year. Taxing the over the top rich:those with $100's millions on paper engineering would be the place to focus but they won't.
