WASHINGTON – Unemployment rates rose in 43 states last month, the government said Friday, painting a bleak picture of the job market and illustrating nationwide data released two weeks ago. The rise in joblessness was a sharp change from November, when 36 states said their unemployment rates fell. Four states — South Carolina, Delaware, Florida and North Carolina — reported record-high jobless rates in December. New Jersey's rate, meanwhile, rose to a 33-year high of 10.1 percent while New York's reached a 26-year high of 9 percent. Analysts said the report showed the economy is recovering at too weak a pace to generate consistent job creation. "A lot of states that had started to add jobs (in November) gave up those gains in December," said Sophia Koropeckyj, managing director at Moody's Economy.com.
The dollar tumbled to a month-low against the yen Friday as mounting concerns about the health of a global economic recovery prompted investors to seek the safest currency.

Really pushing the agenda today I see. Good thing just like in your last thread the facts are not in your favor. I hate to tell you commie loving nut jobs but it will not work here we have a little thing called the constitution.
If we take away big business what do you think will happen? wake up the have sucked you in using your own hate towards the greed they pushed to happen. We have laws to prevent this greed they just don't use them and we also have anti- monopoly laws we just don't use them.

I simply do not care anymore. I am struggling...millions of Americans are struggling and these GD mega international corporations DON'T CARE.
I'm tired of playing to ideology. I'm tired of hearing that capitalism/socialism is evil. I DON'T CARE.
The railing against the "progressive' movement was created to keep the poor from coming after the rich.
you can thank Glen Beck for that. He's misdirected millions into his rhetoric...and I was once one of them....but no longer.
F U GB. Gutless Pig.
will use whatever will get them in they will even pretend to be on your side.
Why if you hold the same ideals do you want to silence the very voice saying what you are?
You are playing some kind of game and I see right threw it you hide behind the constitution and then gut it from the inside out. Neat trick at least you guys are getting smarter.
I think you are a using the conservative voice to push a agenda that is not even close to what you present yourself as. This is a great concern because I know very few conservatives that think the progressive way is the right way. It is almost like I said you a trying to gut it from the inside out. Please explain how you can be a progressive conservative.
