    comes out of the Obama Administration.  It's counter-productive, isn't it?  And the service sector SUX, too.  Also.

    Thanks for repeating the first paragraph in my diary.  I wrote it just for folks like you.

      Service sector jobs suck. I've worked them, they're better then standing in the unemployment line but only barely. The economy is still in the crapper and tiny upticks when the Republicans are still holding the entire country hostage don't float my boat.

      Modern Conservatism isn't simply about them owning as much as possible; it's also about breaking anything they can't own.

      •  Ha! Bouncing off the walls, eh? Great image (0+ / 0-)

        for a 60-year-old woman!  LOL!!!

        I worked in the service sector, too, and these jobs numbers are absolutely NOT ALL service sector jobs, but thanks for tryin'.  And any job is better than unemployment insurance which RUNS OUT.

        These aren't "tiny upticks," either.  157k jobs is hardly tiny.

        But you're right about the Republicans holding the entire country hostage.  Why would you work against keeping a DEMOCRAT in the White House and giving him MORE DEMOCRATS in Congress, while you're at it?

        Oh.  I know already.  He don't float your boat.

      How is this an accomplishment of the adminstration? What did they do to create jobs, even McJobs? We've been screaming for them to do something, anything, and so far all they've done is let the Republicans set the agenda with "tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts".

        stimulus package that created millions of jobs and rescued the economy.  And of course that pesky rescuiing of the auto industry.  But you call that "tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts," eh?  Sorry.  Wrong.

          package from 2 years for jobs today? Wow. I'm in awe of your devotion to the adminstration.

            as I bounce off the walls LMAO, slapping my thigh. knowing we need 15 million jobs.

            157 jobs, on something 150k workforce growth is........ drum roll.........

            7,000 jobs......

            with a primary trend of $30 an hour jobs we lost coming back as a new job at $15 an hour.
