Just how weak is the economy?
While stocks have rebounded from the Great Recession, other economic numbers -- including Friday's jobs report -- have often been lackluster. Here's a graphic look at the recovery so far.
With just 88,000 jobs created in March, Friday's jobs data shows a possible slowdown in an already weak employment market. Here's a look at the overall picture.

The economy can't recover when we don't produce anything.This is surely a joke. I fear we are in a free fall on a magnitude we have not even felt a fraction of. We'll eventually bottom out, China will align with N. Korea and deal the fatal blow. Fatalistic, I know! But I have ZERO faith in this administration and it's not because I'm conservative and can't stand liberals...Oh I do! But this guy has got it all wrong.
We should tax the crap out of Chinese products and try to build something in this once great country other than more animosity.
There is some good news for the markets - the dismal March jobs report guarantees that QE won't end anytime soon.
Did MSN title this article 'The state of the US RECOVERY?' What US Recovery???
I don't see no damn RECOVERY. Unless more people on Food Stamps, Unemployment and Dissability is considered a recovery. I know, let's fix the economy by making more mortgage loans to people that don't qualify for them. Oh Rats, the libs already thought of that, for a second time.
More Propaganda from the office of Dr. Goebbels. Recovery ? Seriously???
Quality of life in America is Significantly Diminished over the past 20 years, thanks to the utter fools in Washington. They should have titled this article:
"Good News!! The pee on your leg is actually RAIN!!"
Their most clever trick in all of this, however, is that of "divide and conquer". As long as they have the screaming, frantic victims of our public school system believing that this is always about the "Right" vs. the "Left"... Rather than ALL of Washington just flat-out opposed to Liberty - they have won... ...and have done more damage to the nation than all the terrorists combined. Because either way you look at it, they still managed to achieve the same goal - the destruction of America.
I hope what they got in return was worth it.
So please do tell, just how weak is everything. Yet Corporate Profits are at records and Cash on Hand at all time High. Guess the average Guy/Gal missed the boat.
