Jobs


Having been unemployed a few times in my life, my heart goes out to those who are unemployed now in this economy.
It is almost a hopeless situation.
We hear every day about how the economy is turning around yet for those without a job it is meaningless.
It must mean a positive thing for the bankers and the insurance companies who got huge sums of stimulus money and are now paying out million dollar bonuses.
There is something wrong with this picture.
The unemployment numbers remain at 10% but Wall Street keeps improving while millions of people can't find a job.
The money is going somewhere but apparently not to create jobs.
At the same time we seem to find enough money to wage war in two different countries while we continue to consider starting a new war in a new country.
What a mess.
