    The American Fed and Government would have you believe everything is going along swimmingly. Here's a couple of staggering statistics that they don't emphasize:

    Today, the number of people in the US working partime (not because they want to, but because they cannot find full-time work) is UP 76% over January 2007. In 2014, the average length of an unemployment claim is TWICE what it was in January 2007. 32 vs. 16 weeks!

    Recovery is a Long Way off, and if you read what's happening to the economies in Europe, and what's going on politically and otherwise in much of the rest of the world, things could get a lot worse before they get better.

    Usually, I am an optimist, but right now, I'm struggling with my optimism.
