So I hear the unemployment numbers are looking good. Only lost about 400K more jobs. Only at 9.4% unemployment. Things are looking better. I heard it from CNBC, I read it on the Internet, and Mr. Obama even said it.
Well, as far as the unemployment number goes, count me in. I was just notified this weekend that our company is going to do a re-organization and unfortunately, as a senior level person, I am the odd man out due to seniority in the company. Yep, the unemployment bug got me. Bitter? Maybe. Surprised? Not really.
You see, Mr. Obama has virtually put a halt to our business. With his threats of health care insurance reform and nationalizing health care and health care insurance, our business fell off the face of the earth. Thank you Mr. Obama for this wonderful job creation stimulus package. I feel so lucky to have you as our president, creating jobs. I guess it doesn't apply to everyone, including the 15 million unemployed and underemployed. But for the 400K jobs he is going to create, I am sure they are right around the corner.
Well, I guess it gives me more time to write blogs. I will keep you all posted on my progress and how long the lines are once severance is over. In the mean time, keep believing what you want to believe about green shoots and a new bull market. For this bear, it is back to pounding the concrete in search of the next great adventure.
