97,000 New Jobs Now Good Enough

150,000 used to be the baseline for jobs that needed to be created each month in America to keep up with new labor force entrants. Talking heads in the Bush administration and elsewhere have since pushed down this figure first to 125,000 or so...and now...100,000. Talk about diminishing expectations. At this rate, a net non-farm payroll number of zero should suffice before Dubya exits stage (far) right. Perhaps they'll explain that more and more people are choosing that ever-popular "life-of-leisure" category. Nevermind that, in February, Uncle Sam did a heck of a lot of hiring:
A 39,000 increase in government hiring boosted the payroll figures. The gain in private employment, 58,000 workers, was the smallest since October 2005.
So there you have it. Be happy with 97,000. We might soon be longing for these glory days.

Fuck off, you stupid cunt. The I.S. will endure and triumph, as we always do, if only we dump the Left and return to our glorious Constitution which helped make us the greatest nation and most generous people in history. Also, we have to stop saving the rest of the worthless world from it's idiotic practices, finally. China will collapse and the world will see that we were right all along, as always. The U.S. has been the greatest force for good in history and you dolts still refuse to acknowledge that. You cannot possibly repay your debts and gratitude is too much to expect from foreign vermin.Well, fight your own battles now losers! We'll keep laughing at your insignificance. Enjoy Sharia like you've enjoyed communism, Nazism, We won't save you this time, scum! HAHAHA!
