The non-fudged numbers for unemployment have now breached 17% heading towards the 25% of the 1932 depths. August was no where near the candy cane fantasy BO administration wanted to paint for us and still they spend money like drunken sailors. The fudged number is closing in on 10%. Seen any of those "shovel ready" projects lately? Maybe they mean taking a shovel to the economy after all.

Hows that Change working for you guys as they continue to print money to buy the debt? I really feel for you younger guys but at the rate they are going we are all going to be in deep shat.

the democrats were saying this was gonna happen 2 years before the election because of what that admin was doing.
so we are right on track with what they said was gonna happen. also as the old saying goes .ITS GONNA GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER. kinda the reason we are glad that the new policys are under way and soon will be back on the up swing on unemployment.
also the nasdaq/dow was at 6500 wen BO took over where is it NOW up in dbl digits again THANK GOD. also where was the nasdaq/dow wen. clinton was running the country it was at a staggering 14000.
so step back and really see where and who is and was doing what when we really had money for our country.. but hey great post.

The amount of misinformation you vomit is amazing.

Monetizing the debt was not a policy of GW it is financial suicide and to date the Federal Reserve still denies doing it although it has been proven they are by tracking bond serial numbers.

This whole mess began with Fanny and Freddy both under the watch of the Dems MR. Barney Frank, when the recession hit all those loans given to people never really eligible went belly up beginning the whole chain. It was promised by BO that if TARP and the STIMULUS passed unemployment would not go beyond 8%, oh yeah.

If you want to defend this bunch get your lies straight.

as you sir pretty simple to see when we were in debt throughout the years and see when we weren't in debt . we had no need to print or borrow money in the 90s .lol since our country was running great with a surplus. then all hell broke loose in 2k and we lost everything including almost every penny of our country hence the bottom out of the 6500 on the NASDAQ.lol and now its finally topping dbl digits yet again hm-mm not rocket science sir.lol and i see who is spouting the missinformation .lol hence my replies to the gibberish . but keep sending me the koolaid i guess lol. wow all i can say.

Even in tough times, some companies are hiring.

As graduations are taking place across the country and the economy is remaining in a bad state, college graduates are faced with one of the most competitive job markets in years.

It's important to realize, however, that although employers are proceeding with caution, many of them are still hiring.

Forty-three percent of employers plan to hire recent college graduates in 2009, down from 56 percent in 2008, according to CareerBuilder's Annual College Job Forecast.

The survey was conducted among 2,543 hiring managers and Human Resource professionals from February 20 and March 11, 2009.

"While recent college graduates are facing a highly competitive job market right now, there are still opportunities out there," said Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America.

"The biggest challenge is showing relevant experience, which employers say is one of the most important factors they look for in applications from recent college graduates. This isn't limited to professional work experience, so don't get discouraged. Class work, school activities and volunteering also qualify as relevant experience and can be included in your résumé as well."

If you're a recent college graduate looking for work, here are 25 companies who are hiring new graduates this year*:

You'll have to forgive Mr.40calorie. He probably grew up thinking FDR saved the US from the Great Depression via his socio-fascist tyranny, rather than the reality of FDR keeping this country in purposeful agony for that entire miserable decade just to aid in consolidating his power.

the reason the real unemployment is so high... you have business owners who have to close their business and can't collect unemployment.. You have sub-contractors who lose their jobs.. can't collect unemployment.. and you also have the people who no longer qualify for unemployment (they have been on it too long).. the unemployment numbers are based from the number of people COLLECTING.... not everyone without a job collects unemployment.
