Actually the only thing we are stalling at this point is the complete destruction of our economy by president "stool sample" and his merry band of marxists! If you think Greece was bad, just wait until it hits here with over 300 MILLION GUNS in the hands of private citizens! They don't have guns in Greece!

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has released the latest unemployment numbers for January. The unemployment rate has jumped back up to 7.9 percent with just 157,000 jobs being added to the economy. The number of unemployed and under-employed persons still sits at an alarming number.

The number of unemployed persons, at 12.3 million, was little changed in January. The
unemployment rate was 7.9 percent and has been at or near that level since September 2012.

In January, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was
about unchanged...
