Unemployment Highest Since 1983,
Some Job Losses Most Since 1949
Wow, you just have to admire all the Pbama Cultists who cling to their beliefs that the Pbama-Liberal Stimu-pork bill was "better than doing nothing." How do we know, since we didn't have the option of trying to do nothing? Pbama and his Fascist Marxist Regime forced the biggest spending and debt program onto the nation and the results have been daily stock market plunges and all-time lows in consumer confidence.
Way to go, Barry. Way to go! Super job on the economy! Fabulous! Pbamanomics works! So much for that free market/capitalism crap. Crush the economy, wipe out people's savings, constantly speak ill of the economy and market thereby turning 401(k) plans into worthless paper and talk of future stimu-pork plans.
February saw the unemployment rate hit 8.1%, the highest since 1983, and 651,000 people lost their jobs in that short 28-day month. From Forbes:
US unemployment rate surged to 8.1% in February, a 25 year high, as the US shed another 651,000 and December's job losses were revised to largest decline in fifty years, the Labor Department said today.
The 651,000 job loss in February came in slightly above the 648,000 lost jobs economists were expecting. But this came after the economy lost 655,000 jobs in January and 681,000 jobs in December; December saw the largest job loss since October 1949. The December/January revisions added another 161,000 lost jobs to the two months for a cumulative 1.3 mln jobs lost.

President Obama traveled to Columbus, Ohio, on Friday to hail the swearing-in of 25 new police officers who had been told after their training that the city did not have enough money to hire them.
"These jobs and the jobs of so many other police officers and teachers and firefighters all across Ohio will now be saved because of this recovery plan; a plan that will also create jobs in every corner of this state."
"All together, this recovery plan will save and create over three and a half million American jobs over the next two years."
"...by itself, this recovery plan won't turn our economy around or solve every problem."
Consider the following from the above (linked to) Forbes article:
The economy has now lost 4.168 mln jobs over the last twelve months and a total 4.384 mln since January 2008, when the economy began shedding jobs. More than half of the total losses have occured [sic] in the last four months.
I think Ol' Barry is going to give Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe a good run to see if the U.S. can beat Zimbabwe's 231 million percent inflation rate! Soon, we could be just like Zimbabwe. Don't kid yourself, that's exactly what Pbama wants.
Now really, is there any question why millions of Americans want Pbama To Fail?
Too often saving one for the government means making it survive a couple of months until the end of the loan expires and the company finds itself incapable of reimbursing it.
