Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor: Did Ed Kent Get It Right?

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

This does not mean that he can control events – stop other nations resisting peace.

I mentioned in a recent blog the contrast between other nations that report the real numbers out of work and our reporting only those who have been searching for jobs recently. This discrepancy completely distorts any comparison in the progress of national economies.
