I think I hear crackling.....yes....its the freezing of the job market....

We still have a 13, 33 and and another 13 week extention for unemployment... But they need to do something about health insurance for the millions of people who are layed off and will be layed off.

Its pretty sad when even McDs is flooded with Aps from prior union and assembly workers.

That sucks. Instead of rebounding, things seem to be getting worse.

yup. Sadly, it will get alot worse before it starts getting better. Great depression of 2009. The govmt just doesnt want to admit it.

I think the GM issues will be much farther reaching than people realize.

Well I am of the theory that they do know it and it is a sort of "order out of chaos" kind of thing. I know...very big brother of me. We just have to be sure to safe guard OUR country from so called easy fixes!

So true Chelita! Do I hear the words "global economy"? Yes, sadly.

Oh, I am totally sure the powers that be know exactly what the far-reaching consequences are (and maybe are doing a little bit of orchestrating). I'm talking the people in the general public. I think most have no idea what'll happen.
