    Wow finally after 5 years after the Bush Presidency plunges the USA into a deep financial Abyss , we are seeing signs of a recovery. Well the Bush Presidency has only cost us thirteen years of prosperity lets hope the country never has another phony election decided by a Republican Supreme Court. Bush and Cheney were more destructive to the USA, than any of our enemies.

    Around the holidays, temporary jobs had always been available. Now come back with the statistic around Spring and Summer time, that'll give a truer indicator of how our economy is doing.
