Jobless claims jumped unexpectedly last week

Jobless claims jumped unexpectedly to 444,000, reversing 3 weeks of decline
WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of newly-laid off workers seeking unemployment benefits jumped unexpectedly last week, the government said Thursday, reversing three weeks of declines.
The Labor Department reported that new applications for unemployment insurance rose to a seasonally adjusted 444,000, up 15,000 from the previous week. Economists had expected claims to drop to 420,000.
The increase indicates that the slowing economy is taking its toll on the job market. Many economists consider claims above 400,000 to be a sign of a weak economy. Initial claims stood at 320,000 in the same week last year.
I don’t know why this was considered “unexpected” BY ANYONE. It’s clear the economy, worldwide, is in the shitter! There are a whole host of REAL WORLD PROBLEMS HITTING US! In the mean time the reverend mcPain and obamessiah are locked in battle over nonsense non-issues! This from politico:
Palin reignites culture wars
David Paul Kuhn, Jim VandeHei Tue Sep 2, 2008
ST. PAUL, Minn. — The culture wars are making a sudden and unexpected encore in American politics, turning more ferocious virtually by the hour as activists on both sides of the ideological divide react to the addition of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to the Republican ticket.
The mcPain and obamessiah campaigns have to go this way. The syphilitic co-joined twins of the apocalypse simply AGREE on all the real issues:
mcbama AGREES that the bloody, illegal, immoral war will continue for at least ANOTHER TWO YEARS, IF NOT LONGER!
mcbama AGREES that the minimum wage will continue to be worth less in real dollars, then it was in 1964!
mcbama AGREES that the thieving corpoRATeer insurance companies will continue to make HUGE PROFITS FROM OUR FAILING HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, while people DIE on emergency room floors or because the corpoRATeers REFUSE TO COVER THE COSTS OF LIFE SAVING TREATMENT!
mcbama AGREES that the thieving oil giants will be allowed to continue to make HUGE PROFITS from phony “shortages” and corpoRATe welfare tax payer funded give away packages, while they scalp us at the pump!
mcbama AGREES that we will end this decade, and enter into the next decade, without ANY SENSIBLE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY PLAN WHAT SO EVER!
mcbama AGREES that the military industrial complex corpoRATeers will continue to make HUGE PROFITS from washingtOOn pork barrel military spending. This has been draining our county’s economic life blood via deficit spending for DECADES! Under a mcbama presidency, ALL THE ABOVE WILL CONTINUE!
MOST EGREGIOUSLY, mcbama AGREES that they, and ONLY THEY TWO, will be allowed into the televised presidential DEBATES!
It isn’t enough for mcbama that they out spend third party/independent candidates because of the bribes, er, ummm, corpoRATe campaign contributions flowing into their coffers.
It isn’t enough for mcbama that they spend HUGE AMOUNTS of their ill begotten corpoRATe gains on blocking third party/independent candidates from getting on the 50 state ballots!
It isn’t enough for mcbama that their bought and prayed for corpoRATe controlled main stream media gives little, IF ANY, coverage to third party/independent candidates!
mcbama has AGREED that ALL OTHER CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT, BUT THEY TWO, WILL BE BARRED FROM THE TELEVISED DEBATES!
SHAME ON mcbama FOR THEIR UNDEMOCRATIC CENSORSHIP!
YOU have to wake up! YOU have to get going! YOU have to DEMAND THAT WE GET A REAL DEBATE ON THE REAL ISSUES! YOU have to INSIST that third party/independent candidates need be included in the televised debates! Else, there will be NO REAL DEBATE ON THE REAL ISSUES!
Support and vote for the only candidate for president who will give us THE REAL CHANGE WE NEED!
