This Is A Recording

Jobs supposedly created coming in under the forecasted amount for the month/quarter…prior month/quarter estimates revised upwards…stocks slightly up/slightly down (Jeff Brown of the Inquirer said we should buy inflation-indexed U.S. savings bonds yesterday as opposed to stocks for a better yield right now)…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been listening to nothing but this for the last two years at least (before that under Bushco, I was listening to the news that all of these indicators were sinking – at least now they’re “treading water” a bit). At this point, I almost wonder why they even bother to run these stories (I guess they have to tell us something).

And this is supposed to be progress?
