Perhaps it's no coincidence that today is also Blue Monday.

In the spirit of the day, here are some statistics worth noting. Since 1/20/09:

The unemployment rate is the same.

That's even with more than eight million Americans opting out of the labor force -- the lowest labor force participation rate since 1981.

The price of gas has almost doubled.

15 millions more Americans now receive food stamps.

Of course, the media continues to block and tackle for its Messiah.  And most frightening of all, the President himself tweeted (from church, no less!) that today marks the beginning of his opportunity to "finish what [he's] started."

Oh, great. 

Well, at least we can pray that President Obama will do what is right for America.
