Re: Obama's Budget Cuts

Unemployment went up last month from 9.7 to 9.9 and that chart does very little to show the whole picture. This link is much better and I wish it looked better but unemployment is still very high. Also I think each time they extend unemployment they are just allowing more people to sit around a few more months.

yuo really believe that people are sitting on their behinds and don't wanna work? What happens when the unemployemnt stops and they can't pay their bills. Blame Obama people are homeless, I can hear it now. Sorry bankers, you made this mess now you gonna help feed the people you manipulated and deceived.

Re: Obama's Budget Cuts

I have some family members that were downsized and are unemployed, they would love to be working and are desperately searching. If it wasn't for the extension of unemployment I really don't know where they would be. The job market is still very limited. But yeah, probably just easier to blame it on lazy people. They sure are making a king's ransom off of unemployment.

Picking up all those lost jobs is going to take a long time (real unemployment/underemployment is almost 20%) but the fact remains that things are getting better. Just last week a buddy of mine who has been unemployed for almost a year got two job offers and a request for second interview on the same day (I know for sure Boeing, Google and GE are hiring again).

Re: Obama's Budget Cuts

we called back everyone that was laid off, and hired around 60 people. i usually can judge whats going on by the hiring, and the production orders. it seems like things are starting to turn

Re: Obama's Budget Cuts

Speaking of scales...the star VY Canis Majoris is a billion times bigger than our sun.

Quote:
If the Earth were to be represented by a sphere 1 cm (0.39 inch) in diameter, the Sun would be represented as a sphere with a diameter of 109 cm (43 inch), at a distance of 117 meters (384 feet). At these scales, VY Canis Majoris would have a diameter of approximately 2.3 kilometers (1.42 miles)
The Sun's size relative to Canis Majori.
