Random Thoughts: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs


Labour numbers in Canada this week were weak, but things down south are literally getting worse (sorry, a leftover from yesterday). The U.S. President is introducing a bill to help with jobs, here in Canada, we have the Ontario Prime Minister claiming he has created the most jobs in the past 4 years (but then again, he also lost the most, so I am not sure you get to boast about this, but in election rhetoric, who can tell), but the talk is no longer about deficits, and such, it’s about jobs stupid! I gotta love that statement, I wish more folks would use that on the election trail.

With the temperatures starting to drop, maybe it’s time to think about looking at your furnace? Just an idea, because we are going to get frost here in Ottawa. Seems like only last week  I turned off the air conditioning, no wait, it was only last week, wow. It will be interesting to see with the alleged smart meters, whether my Hydro bill is going to go down or up.

This was an odd week for posts, I was kind of all over the place, but that is literally how my mind works:

Other financial folk are looking at the mess the global economy seems to be in, and have some more commentary on this mess:

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my crappy page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Have alook at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

    Thanks for the mention. The standup economist is hilarious. Bankers want to be with him, economists want to BE him.

    Thanks for the mention! Surprisingly, your home warranty does not cover you after a flood if you purposely change the grading of the ground to slope towards your house and then leave the sprinklers on all night. Good to know ;)
