Health care reform
Not that this post has anything to do with health care I just liked that photo from the movie Invisible Invaders.
I see we get yet another extension on unemployment thanks to our state senator Jim McDermitt. Thanks Jim. Call me stupid but wouldn't it be smarter to actually use that money to have us actually do something like repair the nation's infrastructure? Here we sit growing mold while there's so much to be done. I've called around to find that there are some 500 electricians, 400 laborers and I'm sure several hundred carpenters who are out of work right now. Nobody is hiring. Most companies I've called are waiting for money to be spent. They all say the same things. We expect work soon but so far nothing. I see TGI Fridays just went out of business and Genie (they make boom and scissor lifts) took people right off the production line and sent them home today. The oil change place down the street from me went out just last week. And to top it all off Boeing laid off another 100. There's four people getting forclosed on in my neighborhood. So yeah things are getting worse before they get better. So if you have a job and are getting stressed because you may be working long hours quite your bitching. It could be worse.
