    Great...

    U.S. hiring picks up but not enough to sideline Fed

    Employers in July hired the most workers in five months, but an increase in the jobless rate to 8.3 percent will probably keep expectations of additional monetary stimulus from the Federal Reserve intact.
    ...here comes another round of quantitative easing. Bring on the commodity inflation! Right when the Midwest in the midst of a drought.

    Anything that the GOP filibustered did nothing to prevent Obama's signature legislation to pass and the results are there for all to see. You choose to ignore them. Obama didn't propose a public option nor would it have mattered.

    Here. This works even for the liberally impaired.

    Table A-9. Selected employment indicators

    Click the top box "16 and over, not seasonally adjusted"

    You will get a 10 year table of hard numbers, not the bull**** you linked to, which still does not add up as you said.

    Then as you need Bush's first numbers, adjust with the box available to include all of 2001.

    Voila, you will get the hard numbers that I quoted, and not what you fabricated.

    And I do not think you will like the real numbers

    If I were President, and I should be, I would question having to pass every bill with a super-majority. I would push for compromise...like Reagan. I miss Reagan.

    You are standing by a contradiction, and you haven't kicked anything but yourself.

    Must have hit a nerve!

    It did, printing money devalues the currency. Since commodities are pegged to the dollar worldwide, we have commodity inflation.

    Which part do you miss most? The massive growth of the federal government? The ballooning deficit? Amnesty for illegal immigrants? Arming out enemies and illegally diverting the money? Leaving our marines as sitting ducks in Lebanon and then fleeing just to make sure the message that terrorism works is heard? Ignoring AIDS? Fighting sanctions against the apartheid regime?
