    Will our Enemies Launch a Sneak Attack?

    Yep and after watching several political shows Sunday and all the Democrats talking about how much the economy is improving and growing and then today we find out that the mfg. sector is in the tank and about equal to Nov. 2009.

    Yes sir, we are speeding right along, right along to the cliff regardless of what Congress does, but if they do the wrongs things, we just stomp on the accelerator.

    • Things definitely went south after the Tea Brains gained some footing in Congress. 2009 & 2010 we had strong growth. Hopefully we can put this Tea Brain nonsense behind us and return to the policies of those two years.

      • From the NY Times today...

        U.S. Added 146,000 Jobs in November; Unemployment at 7.7%

        The government said Friday that the economy added 146,000 jobs in November, a sharper gain than expected in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The unemployment rate dropped to 7.7 percent.
        It was the third month in a row that the jobless rate was below 8 percent. But the Labor Department report also revised previous job gains for September and October downward.

        And today the numbers for the past few reports were in fact altered downward. It was also reported that several hundred thousand were removed from the statistics because they have been out of work long enough that their benefits have run out and they are no longer considered part of the work forces and shouldn't be counted. But no, the government doesn't play games with the numbers of the timing of the release of numbers...never happen. Yeah right.

        But don’t forget, the economy is improving, jobs are being created. The highest increase in new jobs over the past three months has been in government jobs. The people we are paying for, the folks that we will contribute to their retirements even when many of those paying for them have neither. This is a great administration.
