1.01.10 Welcome America....To Benny The B's Zombulation Nation

HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. — As chief financial officer of a top New York advertising agency, Jeff Boose boasted annual pay exceeding $400,000, a spacious office and a lifestyle to match.

Boose and his family live in a sprawling house in this affluent suburb, belonged to a country club and took numerous lavish vacations each year.

But since he was laid off in late summer 2008, they've made a head-spinning pivot. It's no surprise the country club membership, the vacations and a Volvo sport-utility are history. More tellingly, the Booses question every dollar they spend, sometimes eating pancakes for dinner and borrowing from their parents to pay the bills.

Boose, 43, is equally dumbfounded by his inability to land a position despite a résumé brimming with accomplishment and a steady, 20-year rise to the upper echelons of Corporate America.

"I never thought this would happen to me," says the burly, easygoing Boose. "It's a punch in the face."

And some of you Fools thought it was only Architects, Airline Pilots, Auto Workers, Construction Workers, Real Estate Sales Agents..............................................................

Nobody escapes the Zombulator after 1.01.10..........when the cash runs out......

IT IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE THAT THIS PERSON DOESN'T HAVE ACCESS TO FREE MONEY JUST LIKE WALL STREET BANKERS AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WORKERS WHO ARE TECHNICALLY INSOLVENT AND LYING ABOUT THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.

Remember, Zombulation affects the affluent much more than the poor.....welfare is one of the fastest growing industries in America......right behind war/defense.

He's a great writer.  Whether his prognostications have meaning is for the reader to ponder and decide.

You two are joined at the hip.

Kunstler clearly sees the ice........and he is a good writer.

The problem we face now is we are living with a corrupt banking system applying fraudlent accounting and government that is not enforcing the constitution in a fair and equitable manner.

There is little doubt the issues we face have never been faced before.........

By running a massive $2 Trillion dollar deficit upon a shrinking base of tax receipts while expanding our military footprint......we are simply travelling down a path that has led to the ruin of many nations before ours.

If we tried to balance the budget, much of our economy would effectively shut down due to lack of revenues.  Since most of our current deficit is simply a product of monetization.....whatever solution is imposed, it will be convulsive for all.

I have a pretty good idea what it will be......what is a bit unsettling is how will the nation react.  I guess time will tell as the well goes dry.

As an aside, it is a privelege to be called a jackass from someone with a CV as impressive as yours.

I think you will be shocked by the MASSIVE layoffs kicking in after 1.01.10......

The Washington Times announced newsroom layoffs Wednesday as part of a plan outlined in early December to more effectively publish vital information and insight for readers. The most recent changes include the introduction of a refocused print edition and the first of several newsroom appointments.

Acting Washington Times President and Publisher Jonathan Slevin addressed a gathering of Washington Times staff and congratulated employees on their "sense of mission" and "passion for journalism."

The newsroom layoffs follow a company plan that is resulting in the dismissal of more than 40 percent of The Washington Times employees. Friday is the last workday for most of the newsroom employees who were told they are not being retained. Mr. Slevin acknowledged the "pain" involved with the cutting of jobs necessary to accommodate a more focused news and opinion product.
