SHE(AMERICA) IS BEING FORCED TO SUFFER DEATH BY A 1,000 CUTS. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT,20YEARS AGO THAT SUCH A MIGHTY NATION AS AMERICA WHICH SEEMED AS IMMOVABLE AS MOUNTAINS WOULD BE FORCED TO SUFFER THIS KIND OF SHAME AND DISGRACE.

NEW YORK — Stocks fell to their lowest level in four months Friday after the government said hiring remains weak and another European country warned its economy was in trouble.
The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 323 points to close below 10,000. It was the lowest finish since February and the third-worst slide of the year.
Major indexes all lost more than 3 percent. The drop pushed the market back into what’s called a “correction,” or a decline of at least 10 percent from its April high.
Interest rates slid after traders shoveled money into the safety of Treasurys and the dollar.
Retailers were among the hardest-hit stocks after investors bet that a weak job market would discourage consumers from spending. Macy’s fell 6.5 percent.

American Express lost 5.3 percent.
The government’s May jobs report came as an unpleasant surprise for investors who had grown a little more upbeat about the domestic economy the past few days.

The government said 431,000 jobs overall were created last month, but most of those them, 411,000, came from government hiring of temporary census workers. The overall number also fell short of expectations. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters had forecast employers would add 513,000 jobs.
“People are looking for one turning point,” Daniel Penrod, senior industry analyst for the California Credit Union League, said of the monthly jobs report. “That’s not realistic. This growth will be much slower and more gradual than in the past.”
The unemployment rate fell to 9.7 percent from 9.9 percent in April. That was slightly better than the 9.8 percent unemployment rate economists had forecast……HER IS MORE
