There are so many out there that “Obama Unveils Wage Insurance Plan to Spur Job Seekers“. I mean what’s not to like! Fear not that “Global Markets Shed $14 Trillion Since June“. All is well on the home front…

Global Markets Shed $14 Trillion Since June

With markets from Asia to Europe entering bear markets this month, stocks worldwide have lost more than $14 trillion, or 20 percent, in value from a record last June amid worries over global growth and deepening oil declines.

How Did Americans Get So Fat, In Seven Charts

Today two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese. Half are afflicted with chronic conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure that can often be prevented with better diets, but aren’t and as a result debt-funded healthcare costs have exploded, and while this chronic obesity has made pharma companies richer beyond their wildest dreams, it means future US healthcare spending and welfare obligations are unsustainable.

Obama Unveils Wage Insurance Plan to Spur Job Seekers

WEB Notes: Not much of this article made sense. It says it would help Americans who make less than 50k by replacing half of their income if they are laid off and accept a lower paying job. The benefit would cover 10k over two years. Someone help me out here, how is 10k over two years half of 50k in one year? Your salary could only drop to 45k for this to cover anything and it certainly is not half. This is not the answer anyway, you do not take from one man to give to another. Nonetheless, if the economy was fine why would we need this? Further at the bottom of the original source article obama is requiring states to provide 26 weeks of unemployment and 52 weeks for states with high unemployment.

Let’s face it, these jobs are not the best to begin with, but for some people that is all they have. When that is gone then what? I suppose obama can assist them with their paychecks.
