    We understand that.
    I don't have much use for the term savior. Relying on a savior rather than one's self to solve problems, leads to dependency. Dependency leads to weakness. weakness leads to supporting the Democrat Party.

    Most Professionals have agendas. Your citations were to a wiki article that had no reference to evidence supporting your claim. and I have seen thousands of professionals who put the agenda ahead of the truth

    and a big mess it is, too. Not only have a lot of job seekers given up, even more have taken part time or entry level jobs that pay a fraction of what they used to earn. Moreover, half of recent college grads, most of whom never have held full time jobs, are unemployed.

    This nation can not remain prosperous while wasting human resources in this way.

    you might be right and the dems might still have congress but we'd have better justices on the Supreme Court.

    the attacks on the successful that oBama has engaged in ever since he started running creates a poisonous atmosphere though

    What has the SCOTUS done that you feel has contributed to this situation?

    Neither party got us into this mess, and neither one can get us out.

    If you look at the graph you'll see that then trend is up and took a slight dip in August.
    But you are correct there where less people employed in August than there were in July, however this is not the first time this has happened.

    I was merely noting where McCain would have been clearly better

    re: US economy adds 96K jobs, rate falls to 8.1 pct. [W:123]

    Back in February, I wrote a blog article here titled "Obama, The Media, and The Great Jobs Scam of 2012". It was centered on how the "Employment to Population Ratio", a statistic that takes the total number of people that are of legal working age and eligible to work in the U.S, and the total number of people in the country who are currently employed, and gives you the percent, or ratio, of those who are employed, to those who could be employed. I pointed out how the unemployment rate had gone down since 2009, but that ratio had remained the same, making the unemployment rate that is reported a complete sham.

    Here we are 6 months later and the unemployment rate has declined by 0.2%, so you would think that the EP ratio would have risen... Well once again, that isn't the case. Instead of rising, the rate has gone down 2 tenths of a percent, showing once again that the unemployment numbers are still a complete and total sham.

    It has declined over the last 2 months Pete and if you look at the "Employment to Population Ratio", you'll see that the percent of the eligible workforce that's employed is EXACTLY the same as it was back in October 2009, when the unemployment rate was 10.0%.

    No matter how you slice it Pete, it spells "failure" for Obama.

    The Wiki article gave you the expert opinion of a famous linguist whose field is one of words and their usage.

    If I have to decide who is correct, Turtle or him, my vote is cast for the expert in their field.

    Your dots being connected in the dependence argument are not even in the same coloring book let along the same page.

    You are supporting Mittens because you expect his tax policies will benefit you. In that respect he is going to save you --- money .... lots of it I would imagine is your expectation.
