Christmas spending

Spending this holiday season seems to be up about 5% over last season. Those with jobs seem to feel better about their future and are willing to spend. Good for them.

Unemployment benefits have been extended for those who have lost their jobs. I am all for that. It's just that many of these jobs probably aren't coming back. 30 or more years ago, Playtex had a factory in Princeton W.V.. It closed in a cost cutting move.Those jobs weren't coming back. Global businesses move production all the time. They don't need the United States to produce goods. Food yes, and corporate farming needs less people to do that every year. Soon, unemployed because one is overqualified will be not a reality, but only a conceit.

Global piracy

As the Irish t-shirts said, 'The IMF took me shirt'. Greece and others could well wear the same shirts. After agreeing to severe cuts in spending, trying to recover from what their banks helped foster, their bond ratings are downgraded to junk status. Maybe it's fair, but maybe it has just been brought about. By globalists, of monetary and other ilks.

When globalists run a nation, ruination is not unlikely to follow. When done with intention, such leadership is treason.

Good Bye Urban

Urban Meyer has given Gator Nation 2 national titles in his stay in Gainesville. We wish him the best. But if that's what it takes to get rid of Steve Adazzio, the fans are way ahead on the deal.
