... where are these statistics coming from ??? I saw the news on one of the Albuquerque TV stations last night (Thursday night 5/19) and they had a story that the New Mexico Human Services Department stated that food stamp applications are up 18% from this time last year and they expect that applications are going to INCREASE in the coming months ... a spokesperson from the NMHSD said in the story that the current SAD STATE OF THE STATE'S ECONOMY is the main reason for the increase in applications ... so, WHO'S TELLING THE TRUTH ???

The reality is that this article fails to state that yes unemployment claims might have dropped in NM however, there were no increases in hiring to replace lost jobs.

So there is still a very real deficit in employment rates in NM.

Don't let the government numbers fool you to believe that things are great....they are not.

The liberal media is going to provide positive data about employment by construing facts and revamping stats. Remember that BHO has started his campaign (of course he has never stopped) for 2012. The liberal media will do, will say, will lie, will distort, will kiss his a**, they will do anything in order to get that thrill in their leg again.

Midland-Odessa Texas: both cities need many skilled and unskilled workers. Many companies have job fairs, all the time. White collar, blue collar. Good pay. Truck drivers, oil field laborers, warehouse work, you name it they have it. Small business are doing very well and need counter help, etc. Either Chamber of Commerce offices can direct you.
Unemployment rate stays around 4.3%.

Who cares, the jobs that are here are minimum wage. Don't come here looking for a job ~ unless you are illegal and build rock walls or are willing to work minimum wage and have a supervisor who's a high school drop out with three kids and doesn't speak english.

What are absolutely the worst words that could be formulated and spoken on any news source--if you are a Republican? The world is coming to an end? There is a dirty bomb in a crate in New York harbor? The Mississippi floods a million homes? No. None of these. The worst news possible is that the economy is turning around from the Bush depression and employment is rising. It's the apocalypse for the Repubs. With a little work, they just might prolong the misery. Now we're talkin' Republican strategy.
