    It seems that every other day some new economic report comes out and completely reverses any direction that seemed to emanate from the previous one.

    Just the other day, the unemployment rate dropped .1% and 112,000 jobs were added, so what do we get? first an upbeat report on the 'improving and strong economy' until some other asinine report comes out and says that the recovery may be threatened because the jobs issue isn't keeping up with the population.

    believe me jon, I feel for you. yes, at least I am healthy but my wife is not and unable to work.

    I also have the long hair and its difficult getting a job unless its through someone that knows my technical expertise.

    You mean I have been debating issues with a 50 year old, unemployed, long haired, ear ring wearing, burned out hippie, with a bad attitude.

    Cut your hair, take the quear ring out and go get a job.

    and he STILL outdebated your stupid ass every time.

    about the hair cutting thing? you tell me what defining ability prevents someone with long hair from doing as good, if not even better, of a job than someone with short hair. I'm pretty sure that I'm leaps and bounds ahead of you in any knowledgable skill and I still have my heritage hair.

    THe best books are usually the ones with the ragged covers:D
    the grey is a bitch though... my long hair..or long hair in general should only come into play on a safety issue...ie..machinery,moving gears...ect...

    Jon,
    Sorry to hear of your injurys and your losses, I was trying to be more funny then I was trying to be mean.

    But if I need to get a haircut and take out my earring to get a job,
    I would.
