I haven't been posting very many new blog columns, but I do try to stay current on twitter if you want to keep in touch. I don't like to repeat myself, and it is mostly the same old, same old. This weeks new unemployment claims sounded great, but there were two states that supposedly had computer problems that kept the number down. The thing is, don't believe these excuses when they appear in the corporate media, pay attention all the time. The week to week claims have been trending down on average, and this is good news of course. The real big problem is low wages and obstruction from the tea-baggers in Congress.
I'll try to write more columns next week. Keep digging those trenches, we'll win in the end. prairie2
