It appears that the rest of the nation is finally catching up with North Carolina ... in joblessness, that is. Headline this a.m.: "Jobless rate rises to 4-year high of 5.7 percent."
'Course, North Carolina has already broken 6 percent, putting us 13th from the top in joblessness (or is it the bottom?).
Things are even worse around these parts, especially in Winston-Salem and the Triad, where the unemployment rate hit 6.4 percent in June, the worst showing in five years, or in other words, equally bad to another bad year in the George W. Bush presidency.
Now, tell us again why we should vote Republican this year? Because John McSame has promised to continue, extend, and perfect that policies we're now living under?
