I don’t suppose this has anything to do with it:
9.8% unemployment. That’s not including people who’ve given up looking for work or who haven’t filed for unemployment. Nor does it include thousands of impecunious serfs like me who are ‘under-employed,’ one of my favorite euphemisms which, around where I live, means ten dollars an hour, twenty hours per week, and don’t forget to smile and wear plenty of flair.
Gen. McChrystal might get his 40,000 new ‘trigger-pullers’ for Afghanistan after all. Funny how things work out, isn’t it?
