    If you are too busy to keep up with the news, then why do you think it's propaganda?

    Because the presidential election is coming up, and they typically try to boost the statistics to make everything look better than it really is. And that is normally done by whomever is in office looking for reelection.
    Maybe propoganda was the wrong word, but I do beleive they skew the numbers to give us a false sense of well being at times.
    I guess I'm just sick of the news, and just get bits and peices. I never just sit and listen to the news anymore and I have a better fram of mind because of it.

    It also helps to hit the hard dirt with some Fels Naptha and a scrub brush. lol I have to do it with the hubby's work clothes and his coats ( ring around the color ( remember that?) lol) even now to get them clean. And thats with a maytag neptune tumble washer. The man can get dirty! lol

    I didn't want to be reminded of washboards, or sore red knuckles and messed up cuticles, LOL! Yuck!

    But, yeah, sometimes it is a necessary evil!

    As for the job situation, I believe it was MSNBC that had something on there about jumping the gun on the good news about employment....can't remember which one it was it was almost a week ago I think.

    I'm seeing alot of homeless people that I didn't see a couple of months ago. Newly homeless? I don't know. Maybe I'm just seeing them because they got chased off from somewhere else or because it's warming up some.

    Either way, construction of a few new liquor stores isn't my idea of a better economy..for us down here. If nothing else it means there's a lot of drinkin' going on out there.
