That feeling is likely to spread next month, when 202 sworn deputies and 40 non-sworn employees lose their jobs – the fallout from $57 million in cuts to the sheriff's $130 million discretionary budget.

As thousands and thousands of peace officers lose their jobs over the next few months due to budget constraints....citizens will be forced to band together to patrol their own neighborhoods.

Again, this is not the end of the world, simply preparation for change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another Headline Lie!!!!!!!!!!!

Headline:

Dell sees slight second-quarter sales gain

Fact:

Dell's revenues are DOWN about 24% y/y

 

Airlines, Autos, Advertising, Architects, New Home Builders, Retail, and Technology all experiencing double digit sales declines.......a depression is just a 10% sales decline from peak to trough.

Today we had confirmation from Dell, Fastenal, and Advertising Giant Magna that revenues are down OVER 10%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

America's Shutting Down Continues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  We've reported in the past few months about job cuts at casinos in the Sacramento area and northern Nevada, from Thunder Valley to Red Hawk to the Horizon at Lake Tahoe.

     Here's further evidence of a slump-ridden industry: International Game Technology, a Reno company that makes slots and other gaming devices, laid off 161 workers last week. That includes 55 layoffs in Reno, as reported by the Reno Gazette-Journal.

    This follows 200 layoffs in January and another 500 last fall.

     The recession has taken a huge bite out of the casino business. Revenue at Nevada casinos fell 8 percent in May, for instance.

Phillips (PHG) reported a 19% revenue decline

Electronics, advertizing, and fasteners are not exactly representative of the total economy.  But your point remains, even if it is a little overstated.

I'm waiting to see 3M's YOY revenue declines before I start using the D-word.
