Besides losing manufacturing & IT & healthcare jobs to offshoring & outsourcing.....there go the engineering jobs too.

Here's an Op Ed from a year ago on the Administration's support for shipping American jobs overseas.

UUMMMM........my county's at 20.5 % By 2012 down to 8% nationwide??? I really doubt it.......but then,I've been told I'm "not a positive type person when it comes to the whole unemployment thing" Rolling Eyes I try....really I do,but I'm getting to the point in my life,that I'm really tired of no money......don't get me wrong.......we were never rich,or even "well off" by most peoples standards.....but we had enough,and I'm getting tired of NOT having enough,or anywhere close to "enough"!

Sorry what I'm saying is that Geithner's planning for the seasonally adjusted U3 unemployment rate to stay above 8% for 21 more months.....

Which means that metropolitan areas that today are 20% can expect (according to our pal Tim) by Dec. 2012 to dip down to 18.5% at best.

This is unacceptable. After prior recessions jobs have returned much faster. Yet Tim is delighted to bring in *even more* H1B foreigners & to continue offshoring & outsourcing millions more American jobs.

You know my prediction. Unemployment will be under 8% by the time of the Republican National Convention. 7.9% unemployment is nothing to brag about IMO.
