I'm just wondering.........
what would the unemployment rate be at if all the guardsmen were to come home tomorrow? I mean, they all left jobs, and I am pretty sure that their
bosses really couldn't wait until they came back for the work they were doing to get done. More than likely they hired someone to do that job, even
if it was on a temporary basis....so, if they were to all come back, seems reasonable that the unemployment rate would happen to go up a tad,
how much intentional and unintentional manipulation like this is going on to give us the illusion that our economy is thriving? credit card debt,
which enables the masses to spend more money than they bring in?
inflated housing values, giving people inflated net worths that they can borrow on?a war effort that is pumping alot of money into the defense
industry, aid to new orleans and other natural disasters, perscription drug plans, .....which of course, the government is borrowing from the eternal
money tree that grows in that top secret location......
I don't know, I am not saying that they economy is booming, ain't saying that it isn't......just that I think that there's so much manipulation of
it going on, by the government, by the speculators, and by us if we've borrowed out the yinyang to get all this nice crap we wanted from China and
such places.......which well, let's take a glance at the national debt....
you sure we all just didn't decide awhile back that we just didn't like the state our economy was in and well, created this nice illusionary one to
take it's place??
