    News flash these types of anemic job growth numbers have been reported for almost 5 years now. Using these projections , 2 states are responsible for a 100,000 less jobs created than the prior month? Means the rest of the nation contributes less than NJ and NY do. Can't say I can recall one storm wrecking so much havoc on employment from Florida to Alaska.Courtesy of Uncle Ben's free money policy corporate, junk, municipal debt are at record highs in this country ..Municipal debt alone stands at $3.7 trillion,.No country in history has ever managed to pile up so much private and public debt , Interest rates can never go up as Jami Dimon of JP Morgan said during his testimony before senate ; I should say, since I watched it, senate was testifying before Jamie.
