Thursday Afternoon News Roundup

The monthly unemployment numbers came out last Friday. We are seeing more of the same as Paul Krugman and others predicted. 157,000 jobs were added last month. We need more.

I know that there has been a lot of talk about deficits. In my opinion, there hasn’t been enough talk about job creation and a living wage. That’s what we need. (Just talked about this on the Jeff Messer Show.)

Michelle Obama is going to the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton (killed by gun violence). Read more. Very sad.

I know that a lot of people are worried about the drone strikes. I’m sorry. I’m not. Yes, I agree there should be more oversight. There should be more than one man deciding on whether to kill someone or not. BUT, I’m far more concerned about JOBS!!! It is the lack of good jobs and the lack of a living wage that is going to kill the American way of life.

I find it interesting that Dick Morris and Sarah Palin are out at Fox. I’m not sure what it means. It might not mean anything.

150-foot asteroid will be passing relatively close to earth on February 15th. I guess we can all wave and say, “Hi!”
