#2305: Oh yeah, the recession is REAL over.

"The United States economy has lost more jobs than it has added since the recovery began over a year ago."
...[N]onfarm payrolls are still down 329,000 from their level at the recession’s official end 15 months ago, and the slow growth in recent months means that the unemployed still have a long slog ahead.
In other words, there are now 329,000 fewer jobs than there were when the recession supposedly ended.

"...the recovery thus far has been so anemic that the job picture seems likely to stagnate...." It would be an improvement if the job picture were to stagnate! The economy lost 329,000 jobs since June of last year!
