I really don’t have much to say.  I am writing to just write so I can make myself better.  I am trying to get back into writing more, partly to get better, but also to make it easier to do.  I have been working on my book idea, where I am outlining parts of it, and I should be writing it in a real form soon.  One of these days I am going to ignore all my responsibilities and dig deep to get it done.

Job search isn’t going well.  I won’t get into the “super happy good” stats the government put out.  I will say the number they do  put out is horribly inaccurate.  The number that should be looked at is the U6 number, which takes into account people who aren’t receiving unemployment and are also underemployed.  That’s the REAL unemployment number.  That one is about double the U3 number the government tries to spin and say that’s the real number.  I suggest you look at the site shadowstats.com, who really puts the numbers in perspective.  

To make up for the lack of writing, I give you this video.
