Noticed today that the checks seem to be getting smaller each week. This is of course not good, and I had to weed out yet another creditor this week. It seemed more important to have electricity and insurance than be able to buy a new desk chair on credit.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of gnashing of teeth over the failure of the repeal of DADT. It certainly went out with a whimper this time. One pundit calls the whole thing political theater, which is likely true.

Everyone in Washington gets to go back and campaign with a clean slate on the issue. John (crazy boy) McCain gets to tell all the blue hairs in Arizona he kept the fairies out of the military, and the Democrats get to tell the rest of us that "well...we tried, but the big bad Republicans blocked us."

Keeping my fingers crossed about jobs, they're few and far between these days. It's best to go directly to the company if you really want to talk to them about a job. These websites and referrals are empty promises.
