You decide ...

So they tell us we're on the rebound:

US Adds 120,000 Jobs; Unemployment Falls to 8.2%

Tell these people we are rebounding...

88 Million Not in Labor Force
Now here's the fine line in the first report:
".... The drop in the unemployment rate, to the lowest level since January 2009, reflected a drop in the labor force. The separate household survey, from which the jobless rate is derieved also showed a drop in employment...." http://www.cnbc.com/id/46975031

Many of the jobs created have been added in manufacturing which in the long run looks good for the economy. I guess saving the Auto industry was a good thing after all.

No Randall bailouts are not good. they never address the issues -union payouts and demands, mismanagement , etc.

if the bailout was so good, why did GM just move some of their operations overseas? you see Randall, the government owning any business means you and I have to pay for it. In the long run, just like everything else they try to do, ultimate failure will occur.

And you and me will still beating for it. The best solution is to let them fail, have to restructure, and deal with their wayward ways. 88 million unemployed is NOT an example of the economy rebounding. No matter which side you are on.

The railroads went out of business all the time in the 19th century. The government bailed them out, subsidized them, and promoted them. Why? Because they were the future and we needed them to progress, just like green energy jobs.

Here you go Mrs Barber, and Union jobs are still jobs and the majority of people in unions are not thugs.
