Oregon Stimulus jobs created? 3,236 in first three months

Wow, great news! That stimulus is making jobs here in Oregon! My Counties 19% jobless rate should improve dramatically as these numbers climb!

But those jobs lasted on average only 35 hours, or about one work week. After that, those workers were effectively back unemployed, according to an Associated Press analysis of state spending and hiring data. By the state's accounting, a job is a job, whether it lasts three hours, three days, three months, or a lifetime.

So when you hear 150,000 from Obama remember that could be one person hired and let go of the same job 150,000 times. Hope and Change? Hardly.

The state run media CNN is declaring the recession is over... Our government is gonna borrow $200 billion this week. Halfway through the year subtotal around $1.15 trillion we've borrowed and we are going to borrow more. Who do you think is going to end up paying the interest?

Look at California for our future but worse.
