Zero Job Growth

I'm the first one to assert that government doesn't create jobs, and that holds true regardless of which party holds the White House. That said, the government sure as he'll can destroy jobs, and they can sure as hell inhibit the growth of employment.

Which brings us to last month's job growth number of ZERO. If you think you've never heard of such a thing, you may be right. It hasn't happened since 1945. For the historically challenged who may be reading this, that was 66 years ago, at the end of World War II and no, George W. Bush had nothing to do with that one.

We're more than two and a half years into the Age of Hope and Change, how's that working out for ya?
