See the improvement? Why at the current rate of improvement, we will have solved the unemployment problem in this country by, well" never!

New entrants to the job market 
December 2010-  1,306,000 
December 2011- 1,280.000 

So 143,000 new jobs per month versus 100,000 new entrants now add in the fact that half of the jobs created in December were temporary jobs, Christmas jobs, and bogus jobs.

Obama will tell us a story tonight, a media fiction. Those loyal will cheer these lies and those on the other side will scowl. Immediately following Obama's fantasy story hour the Republicans will tell their own pack of lies and yet, it does not matter. There is more knowledge to be gained by grooming your cat. 

IRVINE, Calif. -- Jan. 12, 2012 -- RealtyTrac - , the leading online marketplace for foreclosure properties, today released its Year-End 2011 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report - , which shows a total of 2,698,967 foreclosure filings -- default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions -- were reported on 1,887,777 U.S. properties in 2011, a decrease of 34 percent in total properties from 2010. Foreclosure activity in 2011 was 33 percent below the 2009 total and 19 percent below the 2008 total. 

Isn't that great? There were only 1,887,777 auctions and home foreclosures in America last year, which means that seven and one half million more Americans were put out of their homes. And why were the foreclosure numbers so low last year? Was it due to an improved economy or rising wages? No, the foreclosures were slowed by the legalities of the Robo-signing scandal. How will Obama address that issue tonight, he will announce a new program where mortgage lenders bill the homeowners themselves.

A nation of nonsense, a national dialog which is one hundred percent pure unadulterated bull sh*t. Obama will beat the drums of war while preaching peace, he will preach of prosperity while millions recoil in poverty. Obama offers us nothing, he preaches and pontificates his way through George W, Bush's third term.

As I visited the public park here in Portland, where the occupy movement was first camped, I found sections of chain link fence locking out the public. This public park was closed, fenced off, indefinitely; this public park was closed to dissent, permanently. It was fenced off no differently then Zuccotti Park in New York City. That is the true symbol for the state of the American union, fences, unemployed and homeless against a backdrop of smiling Obama speaking to a room filled with millionaires, criminals and tax cheats.

The speech was a show, a spectacle, a constitutionally mandated theater in the round. A clear illustration of big brotherism,

"War is peace. Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.
