Sudden D,

That fucker will be cleaning grills at Burger King, waiting tables at Chili's or changing oil at Greasemonkey.

Yes that was sarcastic. A 19 point daily move in the BDI, IMHO, would be mostly noise. You have to look at the broader trend and also the absolute level. Doubtful that 1000 or so is a profitable level for the shippers, reflecting a glut of ships ordered in the boom times. And also the BDI has fallen precipitously over the last few months. Perhaps reflecting weaker raw material demand lately, but that's the part the bulls will debate (they might say the index is irrelevant as a measure of shipping demand because shipping supply issues have overwhelmed matters).

I've seen 4 people tackle a woman leaving who had stolen two, $15 sweatshirts...  walmart spends more money on security than people are capable of reasonably stealing...  if your per item cost is ~$5 and people can only stuff $20 worth of shit under their shirts, then who cares about theft?  I mean, if someone really took walmart to the cleaners, what would it cost, $100?

Professional services has taken a huge hit, in addition to the segments that were already in the toilet.

The trend of unemployment and joblessness, structurally speaking, should be a big, big warning to anyone who thinks that a double-dipper (which the U.K. is on the verge of) is not only very possible, but likely, here in the U.S.

That Bernanke may find himself presiding over inflation (especially in the those pesky things everyone needs to consumer each day in order to live) at a time of another big downtrend in employment statistics is going to potentially cause the kind of true friction between the Federal Reserve and politicians who want to keep their seats (in 2012) that we last saw in 1980.

Maybe the average dumbass will actually learn the basics about what The Federal Reserve is, who Ben Bernanke is, and how his taxation without representation on their asses (through a myriad of ways, but principally through QE & Ben's Maiden Lane & Maiden Lane-seque sludge funds) is affecting their price of gasoline, utilities, health care, food and much else...

it depends.

The common logic for hooker hourly rates = distance that their tits hang from the ground.

So: The more their tits are hanging near the floor => the cheaper they are.

To play safely catch the young girls who are just starting to work at the strip clubs. Be nice, buy them a few drinks, and try to be their first customer. Some you have to work a while. Dont be pushy! Of course being happily married the wife makes me stop at the lap dance. Pity youth is wasted on the young.

Great news for new month's propaganda unemployment report.  Knock some more jobs off the denominator because poor shlubs will quit looking and lower the rate.  Recovery!

This way, Obeyme will have unemployment under 5% when there are only 50 million people left in the labor market.  Hope and change!
