    You are making the assumption that all the jobs people are retiring from will be replaced with people that are unemployed. This not always true.

    What are discouraged workers? Are they unemployed or employed?

    Re: Employers add no net jobs in Aug.; rate unchanged

    I am coming to one conclusion after browsing back through the 176 plus pages of posts on this thread. It is, that the opening posting laid out a fact. and that fact is that employers added NO NET JOBS in the month of August. Also as of late this supposed 'summer of recovery' is a huge flop. Nothing has recovered, and I am thinking that we never left the recession.

    In all that, Demo's blame repubs, and repubs blame demo's. and on, and on, and on.....pfft!!!

    But, if we never left the recession, one has to ask why is that? We have been in a Keynesian experiment since January of 2009. It has clearly failed, and no increase of the Keynes model is going to magically work.

    2012 is going to be a referendum on this no matter what demo's say....For it not to be would be dishonest, and go against every 2nd term election this country has ever held. Obama is failing in an epic fashion, and one year and three months from now should he not address his failures and actually start adopting proven policies that work, he will lose.

    iirc, they have chosen welfare on an at least semi-permanent basis. They're discouraged because, apparently, they aren't worth as much as they thought. These are the Americans who refuse to do some jobs.

    If I don't get to share an office like last time, I'll just collect food at churches and keep on the welfare dole. I'm not going back to the fryer! I'd rather be a bum!

    Whoaaaa ... so it's a "fact" again? 'Cause when you responded to me pointing out that there had to be a net gan of jobs just to keep the unemployment rate level, you said you were "questioning" those very numbs you now call "fact."


    Well, I don't know about you, but I am starting to question all these numbers from different sources. They seem way too easily manipulated to fit arguments. You know what British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli in the 1800s said right? "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

    I don't think any of us have been told the real truth for quite a while now.

    Thank you for returning some sanity to the thread. I have no idea why I allow the left to get me off track like they do but I really get tired of the diversion from the facts. Please keep me on track if you can with posts like this one.
