697,000 jobs were lost during February, according to the Department of Labor's preliminary estimate. This will be revised upward later, of course; you can see the propaganda effect pretty easily in the number. Ju-u-u-s-t shy of 700,000. Odd how often that seems to happen with the first number that comes out early in the month: 595,000, et cetera. Does anyone even have a job at this point, aside from (a) TV news people and (b) government employees, such as the President?In a few months will the Dept. of Labor simply announce, "The rest of the American people lost their jobs last month," and that will be it?
"MOSCOW — If you're inclined to believe Igor Panarin, and the Kremlin wouldn't mind if you did, then President Barack Obama will order martial law this year, the U.S. will split into six rump-states before 2011, and Russia and China will become the backbones of a new world order."
