    This will have to end in one of those agree to disagree thingies then because I don't view it as revenge. I view it as the state taking action to protect society from convicted killers. They can either kill them or incarcerate them for life, the former providing the ultimate protection for society.

    Per the thread topic, Employers add no net jobs in Aug.; rate unchanged, wonder what the thoughts are from the Obama supporters regarding his speech last night and wonder how you feel about cutting SS with the payroll tax cuts? Could it be that Obama really does believe that tax cuts will grow new taxpayers? Thought that tax cuts were an expense and don't create jobs so why cut SS?

    That 16% must largely be in these forums from what I see of the posting from liberals, and liberals that are ashamed to admit they are liberals in here...

    Well, if I'm reading correctly.... The WEALTHY, you know, the JOB CREATORS... Who STILL have there Bush Tax Cuts... Well, they are NOT CREATING Diddley Crap, as far as jobs. Wait, wait... I though the TAX CUTS were supposed to STIMULATE the economy... Wha happened?

    So all the Teabrains who regurgitate the moronic talking point about the Wealthy being the Job Creators...Now they all look like dumb assholes.

    In fact, blaming the President for NOT CREATING jobs while DEMANDING the Federal Government GET SMALLER... well, that's downright f-ing STUPID. Talking out of one's ass.

    But hey, they're just Teabrains...

    Love the liberal tone of civility. How about responding to the jobs plan of Obama, the cutting of SS/Medicare Taxes, and how the govt. is going to get enough revenue from the rich to fund the liberal spending appetite? Barack Obama is incompetent and yet still has support from people like you, says a lot about you.

    By that measure, a net gain of 639,000 jobs have been created since Bush's Great Recession ended.

    Great, definitely Mt. Rushmore numbers! Heard his minions are clearing the space now! Doesn't look like the 25 million plus unemployed and under employed are getting that message but nice diversion from reality. It is 2011 in case you don't have a calendar and we are 2 1/2 years after Obama spent trillions and these are the numbers we have? Wonder how much that is per job when you take that 4 trillion/639,000?

    Some discussion of that issue actually arose toward the end of the 1990s when CBO was projecting growing budget surpluses through the foreseeable future. One issue concerned whether the federal government would have to invest in equities/corporate debt and whether such sizable transactions in those securities could distort the markets, portfolio composition could increase overall risks, and whether such investments would lead to increased political influence over the corporate sector, among other things. Another issue concerned the transition of the existing model of FOMC operations under which the Fed buys/sells Treasury securities to a world in which the Treasury market was too small to have a significant impact on monetary policy. Emerging experience following QE1 and QE2 hint that a post-Treasury FOMC approach might not be as effective in macroeconomic terms as the existing model, but it's too soon to draw any hard conclusions just yet on account of myriad other factors that would have to be analyzed. There would also be international implications, too.

    Umm, that's close to the 1.1 million net gain of jobs generated under 8 years of Bush.

    Absolutely incredible results and amazing use of taxpayer dollars. It is 2011 and Obama has a net job loss, fewer people in the work force, more people unemployed after spending trillions and you want to give him credit?

    Just incredible that anyone cares what they say any longer.
    Well, Conservative worships S&P downgrade of our Treasury bonds so he can bash President Obama.
