Employers cut jobs for 6th straight month

WASHINGTON - Employers cut payrolls by 62,000 in June, the sixth straight month of nationwide job losses, underscoring the economy's fragile state. The unemployment rate held steady at 5.5 percent.

I am so glad that there is no economic depression coming and that were not seeing the decimation of our dollar and that people were getting all excited about nothing.

Surely you (you know who you are) remember so fervently assuring us that this was just a normal cycle right? You haven't forgotten have you? Well I haven't, and will you only now admit that you were wrong? No I doubt you will.

Stop misleading your fellow man you are leading them to destruction and I hope someday you are held responsible for your actions here.

No one is an expert here, no one has ever seen what is happening here and what is yet to happen.

They will disappear from this board the minute they're proven wrong. As if they haven't been already. But, being a man of Faith, I believe they will ultimately be held responsible for misleading others.

Yeah, the unemployment numbers were only as bad as expected. Therefore, that's good news.
The ECB only raised rates as much as expected and we conveniently forgot the 'inflation explosion' statement by Trichet yesterday, so that's good news.
