ATLANTA -- Shedding jobs in the state’s prison system was done without layoffs because a 12-percent turnover rate made cutting 1,550 positions less painful, Corrections Commissioner Brian Owens told legislators today.

The committees are in the middle of three days of hearings on roughly $2 billion in cuts to the state budget recommended by Gov. Sonny Perdue.

POOF!!!!!!!

Over 1500 Jobs gone......and never coming back as jobs in America evaporate by the millions each and every month.

Some recovery.......

GEORGETOWN BECOMING A GHOST TOWN BY GEORGE

One more Georgetown fixture will soon be packing up its bags to leave Wisconsin Avenue. Commander Salamander, a clothing and accessories store on Wisconsin Avenue, will be closing by the end of the month without plans to move to another location, according to store management.

Commander Salamander joins 47 52 other businesses that will have either closed or moved to a different location within the last year, according to a report compiled by Georgetown Metropolitan. While most of the 2009 business closings were smaller independent stores, established brands and businesses like American Eagle and Nathan’s shut down, too. On a brighter note, 22 stores also opened (or relocated) in 2009, among them Gore and Dean, Georgetown Cupcake, and Diesel.

Judging from the three stores on Commander Salamander’s block of Wisconsin Avenue that are currently sporting “Going out of business” signs in their windows, which besides Commander Salamander include Milano and Hardware, 2010 does not look too promising for Georgetown businesses.

IF YOU WALK INTO UPSCALE GEORGETOWN PARK MALL....IT IS LOOKING MORE AND MORE LIKE A GHOST MALL

GEORGETOWN WAS ALSTRY'S STOMPING GROUNDS NI HIS COLLEGE DAYS.....MY HAVE THINGS CHANGED IN THE VERY AFFLUENT AREA OF D.C.

AND BENNY THE B CALLS THIS A RECESSION??????

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The airline industry suffered its largest drop ever in passenger revenue last year as a weak economy grounded many would-be travelers, an industry group said Wednesday.

The Air Transport Association of America said total passenger revenue for the major U.S. carriers fell 18% in 2009 versus the year before.

THE WORST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember, a depression is only a 10% decline in GDP from peak to trough....and airline revenues were also down in 2008 from 2007.

With new home construction down about 80%....auto sales down about 50%......and practically every industry other than welfare and war down double digits........you are still expected to believe this is only a recession.

YOUR MONEY OR MY GOVERNMENT JOB....................

CONNEAUT — Skeptical of revenue projections and fearful of losing two municipal employees to layoffs, City Council approved a one-year, 15 percent sewer rate increase at Tuesday’s special meeting.


The rate hike fell short of the level sought by administrators, but is enough to head off the layoff of two waste water treatment plant employees.


By a 6-1 vote, council replaced the 20 percent rate hike sought by administrators with the lesser amount. A 15 percent increase will cost the city’s minimum users an extra $2.58 a month, while average users will see their bills climb $4.32 monthly.

An extra $50 bucks per year here....a lot more over there.....pretty soon, everything you have will be taxed simply so government workers can keep their jobs while you have nothing left to give.

Many American's have been brainwashed in to believing they cannot do anything for themselves and must rely upon the benevolence and graciousness of the unelected bureaucracy. The imbalanced scenario you highlight is not something that will ever occur to them.
