That pushed U.S. payrolls down by a net total of 95,000 layoffs. Equally disturbing was the fact that the number of part-time workers who would prefer to work full-time rose by almost 1 million since July, totaling 9.5 million.

Hahaha!!! The recession is over?!!! What a joke and guess who's the punchline? YOU and ME, the American people!!!

Your local, state, and federal representatives also do not have your best interest in mind morons! Your police and fire do not care about you! They just follow orders.

Lawyers with their unjust laws and banksters with their unsound money have COMPLETE CONTROL of your lives!!!! They control industry, media, and the education system. They control it all.

Meanwhile, a group of "economic experts" (still employed I might add) are telling people that the recession (depression) is over!!!! Hahahahaha!!!! These "experts" know better than YOU morons!

Japanese GDP fell for the 2nd quarter in a row making it official - as we warned a month ago - that Japan has entered a triple-dip recession.
Againstr hope-strewn expectations that the rebound from a sales-tax-driven slump would create a magical 2.2%(annualized) expansion, Japanese GDP slumped 1.6% in Q3 - missing by the most since March 2011.

So no tax increase... and thus fiscal responsibility goes out the window.
Abe dissolves government and bails on another failure?
The initial kneejerk reaction sent USDJPY surging back over 117.00 (and NKY followed) but that has quickly reversed and NKY futures are 600 off their highs (and S&P futures are back near last Monday's lows).
