Ruminations on the economy

Watching early-morning TV, and a news story about jobs and the economy. One of the things that was mentioned was that despite the 8+ million jobs gone, productivity is not declining. And methinks that certain business types can't help but say that evidently those 8+ million jobs are not needed.
They never seem to consider that that's at least 6 million people without income.


This is supposed to be some meaningful rant, but I just can't work up the energy anymore. Most of the angst in my life is dealing with my own insecurities, whether they be job security or otherwise. I know that. Does that make it any easier to deal with? Perhaps. But right now it just feels like an albatross.

I want something better.
