    Saw a patient today who is director of a semiconductor company in CA. Last year they did 1 billion in business, this year 3 billion! Good news undermines the sky is falling narrative and the right”PL” agenda so we don’t always hear it. Thanks for your website, blackwaterdog, bluewavenews, dearmrpresident, w.e.e.see you, the people’s view, and all the sane sites. We need to keep spreading the good news. It is contagious. As people spend more more jobs come back.

    Something is not right about the 9.8% jobs number. That is the first thought that came to my mind when it was reported. Then watching MSNBC, Chuck Todd said it’s as if someone forgot to add or remove a number in their totals. With all the other economic news being really good. This number is just not right. I am sure it will be revised before the month is out. Someone made a mistake in their totals.

    And with a few billion dollars spent on black Friday and cyber Monday. People are not just spending their savings. With at least 27 states reporting major job growth, the stock market up , and less people filing job claims, once the 9.8% is revised, should be closer to 8.0%.
    Many others and myself included, feel the Obama Administration is doing a great job, against all the crap they have to put up with from the right and the naysayers.

    Some people reporting and posting negative info on websites about the Obama Administration or President Obama, I think are paid by the right to post that crap. If they aren’t paid then they lead very sad negative lives. And they will never prosper no matter who is in office.

    I came across this article today, related to my earlier post. It is titled “Did the Labor Department Miss 350,000 Jobs?” I hope it’s OK to post the link here. http://curiouscapitalist.blogs.time.com/2010/12/03/did-the-labor-department-miss-350000-jobs/

    Here is some of the info. At least I am not the only one that think something is fishy with those numbers.

    We might need a jobs recount. Posted by Stephen Gandel

    The employment numbers came out on Friday morning for November and they were far lower than people were hoping for. But here’s the problem: The employment picture might not be as disappointing as the number the Department of Labor reported. Why’s that? The Labor Department failed to count just over 350,000 jobs in its final tally. Include those jobs into the mix, and the economy actually added nearly 400,000 jobs in the month of November. So why did November become such a downer? Here’s why:

      Brilliant link Brezzydee, you’re a star – just posted it.

      Completely ties in with that CBS clip I posted earlier, economists and employers were utterly baffled by the November figures – it’s beginning to make sense! Looking forward to the January/Feb figures now.
