  1. While it was worse than what the markets expected, it’s better than I expected with the seasoning far less favorable than the 2 prior weeks. Guess we’ll have to wait until next week to see what’s “real”.

    OBAMA RECOVERY HITS TIME INC.: 500 LAYOFFS ANNOUNCED

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/01/30/Time-Anounces-500-Layoffs

    So the same publication that sold its soul in 2008 to present Obama as the only hope for our economy, begins 2013 with a round of massive layoffs.

    So the same publication that assured us Obama trickle-down government policies were the magic beans that would grow us into the lush life, begins 2013 with a round of massive layoffs.

    So the same publication that assured us all throughout the 2012 election that our economy was humming and there was no need to find new management, begins 2013 with a round of massive layoffs.

    Yeah, that’s a shame.

    And I’m sure I speak for the millions of chronically unemployed when I say, “Welcome to the economy you dropped on the rest of us.”

    So would this be an increase of “social progress or human happiness” for the laid off Time workers who no doubt will be receiving unemployment checks for the next 2 years? Is that Equality of Outcome policy working out like you expected or was your vision a bit too limited at the possibilities of more time on your hands?

    I do believe it is time to start mocking Bloomberg.

    Social Progress Index, the sum of % of food stamp recipients, + the % of part time workers wanting full time jobs and + the % of Medicaid recipients.

    % = the factional part of the whole population.

    Human Happiness Index, Annual murder rate (total number) in Chicago/Annual death toll of US troops in Afghanistan.
