Some cool employment graphics are in U.S. Job Market Loses Steam
UPDATE - At least a month ago my buddy Rich Cash and I were trading posts discussing this. I have to find it credible - Fidel Castro: Obama can avert impending nuclear holocaust "The ``established order of the planet ... will inevitably collapse, the reigning social order will disappear abruptly'' and all currencies will be worthless, he added." You gotta at least consider it a possibility.
Drudge is railing the first lady's party in spain. If you need something to piss you off go there and read all his links.

As I read and chart and do things you do not need to know about - I'll post stuff here as I find it. I'll add updates to the top of the post.
Enjoy your weekend!
America Is at Risk of Boiling Over And out-of-touch leaders don't see the need to cool things off. "But do our political leaders have any sense of what people are feeling deep down? They don't act as if they do. I think their detachment from how normal people think is more dangerous and disturbing than it has been in the past." And to that Shanky says, "No SHIT!"
Here is one from the "WTF is happening to this country" file - Portland lemonade stand runs into health inspectors, needs $120 license to operate "After 20 minutes, a "lady with a clipboard" came over and asked for their license. When Fife explained they didn't have one, the woman told them they would need to leave or possibly face a $500 fine" You know, I compare this new socialist state to China and Russia and it actually pisses some readers off. To those readers all I have to say is WAKE THE FUCK UP! When your kid can;t set up a lemonade stand things are getting a bit out of hand if you ask me. Fing bullshit socialist controlled state we live in. We really need to get our government back and restore the constitution and our liberties.
If that is not oppressive enough for you this should give you warm and tingly sensations all over - BlackBerry irritates spy masters "At its core, the dispute revolves around the desire of governments in the Middle East and elsewhere to intercept and monitor the encrypted e-mail and text messages sent and received by corporate BlackBerry users (consumer BlackBerrys are much easier to monitor)." Fuck, they are gonna microchip tour fucking turds so they can track them before you know it. All I have to say is do not be surprised when most of those Alex Jones conspiracies start coming to fruition. This place is more out of hand than any of us know.
Aw shit, while I'm om the subject of international espionage why not cover Google goes to bed with CIA "Russia announced that it is working on a "national search engine" to stem Google's assault on the Russian speaking Internet. Allegedly, the government is ready to shed some $100 million to create such an engine." Faster and faster and faster they are shutting down and taking control of data sources for "their" benefit and to shut us down and out eventually. As this global financial crisis escalates (yes, believe it or not, it is far far worse than they are telling you) so do sovereign tensions. Things are literally spiraling out of control and no one has a grip on anything anymore. It is all reactionary which can not be good for any of us.I'm sure you have noticed the annoying 3 second delay when you load Google before the menu line pops up. Just makes you feel like you're being teed up doesn't it?
You would think the first family (especially the first black one) ruling in the toughest times any of us may ever face would be prudent and work harder than any before them to set the highest standards and best example they can. Well....apparently after a fling in Spain she needed a new coat. White House calling: Please will you make a coat for Michelle Obama or you have Barry taking his like 300th flight on Marine one (you do the math on that one, what is he joy riding with the kids and yes the rims on it are still stationary) Obama Choppers Six Miles For Economy Comments I mean, what did you really expect? The fucking Clampets have more sense than these two. Yes there is a difference between being President and a Monarch (or one of these titles emperor, kaiser, king, lord, mogul, satrap, sultan; authoritarian, despot, dictator, overlord, potentate, tyrant; royalty), ya think someone needs to let them know this?
