#1460: We'll all be out of jobs next month.

Nancy Pelosi says so.

Look, there are about 300,000,000 Americans, all told (even including illegal immigrants) and if the economy is doing so badly that we're losing "five hundred million" jobs per month, it's a surprise that we're not already all unemployed.

It also means that there won't be a single paying job in the entire world by the end of July.

It works out to about 16.67 million jobs per day, 695,000 per hour, 11,570 per minute, or 193 per second. In the time it took me to calculate the figures and type the sentence, nearly six thousand people lost their jobs.

But! We can stop the carnage!

Yes we can! All we have to do is let the congresscrits pass this ludicrous "porkulous" bill and everything will be fine!


Of course Pelosi meant something more like five hundred thousand jobs per month--but the liberals never bothered to give George Bush (or Dan Quayle) a break when they made stupid mistakes. So screw it.

Ann Coulter compares the dangers of smoking to the dangers of single motherhood. She's brilliant.

Liberals can never be happy; they will always be angry. QED.

As for me, I'm getting a late start on the day and I've got to get moving. I have to talk to the HR person at work about the family emergency, secure time off, and then hit the Intartubs for a plane ticket to Maine. *sigh*
