    In the first case there are 150000000 in the labor force with 14 million unemployed, that is a 9.3% unemployment rate. In the second example a million seniors dropped out of the labor force and the unemployment roles taking the labor force to 149 million and the unemployed to 13 million or 8.7 unemployment rate. I don't think you have a clue so keep digging that hold deeper.


    150000000 149000000
    14000000 13000000

    Now explain why you're subtracting retirees from the unemployment number . . . ?

    G'head .... I'll wait . . .

    Huh... maybe the same reason you subtract the deceased from the census?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I am in position to do that as I spent almost 20 years in the Democrat Party but when the party left me, I still continued by conservative beliefs and they served me well.

    I would like to forgive him but he makes too many mistakes and I would expect something a lot better from him

    The real estate bubble has nothing to do with the dot com bubble. I thought my non-sequitur dinner made that point. How did you miss it?

    The dot.com bubble burst at the end of the Clinton term and led to the recession Bush inherited. The housing bubble burst and created the recession that Obama inherited. Your BDS is alive and well. Let me know when I can schedule that mental appointment for you.

    Why don't you .... ?

    a) look up the dates as I recommended so you can stop making a fool of yourself; and ...

    b) apologize for projecting that others are the ignorant ones

    Ummm, that's not an explanation for why you decreased the unemployment numbers in your example.

    According to your logic, all we have to do to get rid of unemployment alltogether in America is get 14 million people to retire and then the unemployment number will be zero.



    So now explain why you're subtracting retirees from the unemployment number . . . ?

    G'head .... I'll wait . . .
