    You just can't make up your mind. First you say you support tax cuts now you say don't.

    Why do you put so much faith in economists and none in the actual numbers generated. Think the 25 million plus unemployed and under employed are impressed with the economists opinions?

    You don't even know how to read the numbers! Why would I listen to you? You don't even know how to adjust for inflation, and you want me to take your word for it? Why would I trust a giant group of people who are educated about the economy over six random numbers a guy named "Conservative" found on the Intraweb? I don't know, man, good question. Why don't you think about that for a bit?

    So tell me where it is in DP rules that posting verifiable data is spamming? Further I understand why liberals like you don't like seeing the numbers. They show just how much Obama has fooled you and you don't seem to have the maturity to accept that reality. The numbers are what they are and regardless of you trying to over analyze them those are the numbers that the American people know are important and why they now know they made a mistake in 2008.

    Indeed. After his whole BLS cumulative data fiasco, I'm really not sure why any of you don't consider him a clown. The fact he still doesn't know if the data is cumulative or not merely by looking at it is a sign that no one should be considering Conservative's economic posts as anything but humor.

    Conservative has demonstrated time and time again he does not understand even the basics of how to read economic data. He switches from nominal to real to chain without even mentioning why he's doing it. He argued that unemployment was increasing by double digit millions every month. The fact that so many people have pointed out his seriously flawed methodology of understanding data and all he does is lash out at them while never addressing their points is a sign we should basically ignore him as his posts are effectively worthless.

    Maybe they should come up with a new rule in your honor.

    No offense, but I have run circles around you with those numbers. That's why whenever we start posting other historical data, you just "ctrl + v" that same data over and over. If you had any idea what you were talking about (and I mean any - just a little bit), you would dig deeper into those numbers and then provide some context for them. But you don't know, so you can't.

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    You know there was a political ideology that practiced continued and incessant bombardment of intentionally misleading statements and data. Anyone?

    EDIT: to be fair I do not believe that this is intentional on Conservatives part.... just to set the record straight

    Inflation, because of over use has negatively affected the lie becoming the truth phenomenon. It now takes ten to the 10th power for the lie to become truth when just a few short years ago it only took ten to third power.
