How Low Can We Go?

People can take their “green shoots” BS and use it to fertilize their survival garden.

The Pensacola News Journal says: Florida’s unemployment rate hit a record 12.2 percent in February and likely tops 20 percent when “discouraged workers” who opt for part-time jobs and those who have given up hope of finding work are counted.

The Miami Herald tells us that Floridians’ personal income fell by 2.7 percent from 2008 to 2009, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis said Friday.

Housing and growth are the consistent engines for Florida’s economy, and we are losing residents while having a glut of housing. They don’t know for sure how bad the housing glut is because lenders are keeping some portion of their foreclosures off the market in hopes that prices will go back up. It isn’t going to happen until people have jobs.

The state and local governments are being forced to lay people off, because they can’t “run a deficit” and the GOP refuses to support the Federal stimulus needed to jump start the economy.

The state legislature is messing around with school prayer, and probably new places to hold gun battles. I’m waiting for the bill that makes it legal to shoot people who protest against organized prayer at school functions and authorizes a new license plate to support it. 😈
