Change in payroll employment since January 2009

And YES, if the ‘teabagger/libertarian/Republican party’ hadn’t slashed the ‘normal funding’ to local governments for teachers, police and firefighters; there wouldn’t have been the drop in the Public Sector.

~~~

Q: But the deficit woud be larger?

A: Probably/possibly, but people who are working pay income tax; and they buy crap including houses/cars; thus they pay property tax and sales tax.

~~~

In addition, if we had better public schools and more teachers; kids would be better educated, and less likey to vote for the:

‘teabagger/libertarian/Republican Party MORONS’!

I’m now stepping off my soap-box, thank you!

During a visit by Magnum members to Japan in 1961, Hiroji Kubota came to know René Burri, Burt Glinn and Elliott Erwitt. After graduating in political science from Tokyo’s University of Waseda in 1962, Kubota moved to the US, settling in Chicago, where he continued photographing while supporting himself by working in a Japanese catering business.

He became a freelance photographer in 1965, and his first assignment for the UK newspaper The Times was to Jackson Pollock’s grave in East Hampton. In 1968 Kubota returned to live in Japan, where his work was recognized with a Publishing Culture Award from Kodansha in 1970. The next year he became a Magnum associate.

Kubota witnessed the fall of Saigon in 1975, refocusing his attention on Asia. It took him several years to get permission to photograph in China. Finally, between 1979 and 1984, Kubota embarked on a 1,000-day tour, during which he made more than 200,000 photographs. The book and exhibit, China, appeared in 1985.
