They just don't get it. On Sept. 17 offical unemployment was about 15,031,299

                                               unoffical unemployment was about 19,098,433

Now on Oct. 5 it is                          offical unemployment    15,180,394

                                                 unoffical unemployment is 19,269,274

so in about 2 1/2 weeks offically it does not look to bad only 149,095 jobs gone

unofically in about 2 1/2 weeks we have lost about 170,841 jobs gone. We are only 730,692 jobs away from 20 million jobs gone.  I think that we are in a DEPRESSION and no one wants to say it. About

5 million people are not being counted. Now remember how we here at the Fools we kept saying recession a year or 2 before the FED did? Well I wonder how long it will take before they say depression. Ops it took me 5 minutes to write this and 58 more people just lovet their job.

One of the most interesting figures I have been following is the Bailout numberl. In Sept 17 it was about 11,117,896,534,776 and now it is 


Then add in health care. We can't afford any of this.

Now how many unnofical people have lost their job from the time I wrote this to the time you read this. I wonder when they will start using the FEMA Camps? Anyone care to make a bet?  Ech........ I think I will short homebuilders and Las Vegas.

How about this then -

Whether your stocks are going up or down, no matter what the government/media is trying to sell.... yes, folks, on a street view, community level, We Are In A Depression!

So do the very best you can for your family and if you can find a way, help someone else out.  Spare some money for the charity that you used to give to.  Keep an eye out for a job that might be a fit for someone you know and let them know about it,  We cannot individually do a lot to influence those figures up there, but we can help each other!

Grass-roots time, guys.

amen on giving to charity. That is why I give to the salvation army they take my 10% and keep 10% and give 90% to the poor. However most other churches oh say the Vatican acts like a corporation. They take my 10% fund the buildings and property and give 10% to the poor. I have found out the hard way to see how much really donate to the poor. Then I give up a few things during to give toys to the toys for Tots. It is hard as a part time Bookseller but baring works well also. But don't forget to report it to the IRS. It is taxable after all.
