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.
    BLS methods have not been altered since Obama's inauguration, call the U3 figures deceivingly optimistic or unintentionally misleading if you must, but calling them a sham is simply nonsense.

    Don't get me wrong... I believe the numbers they present are honest. It's their methodology that is flawed.

    It leads people to believe the employment situation is getting better, when the reality is that it's not... That's the sham.

    Also important to note is the continuance of public sector losses at the state and local level apparent in the revisions for the prior two months. Around 40k in June and July alone, dampering whatever meager gains the private sector enjoyed.

    Despite the best (worst) efforts of the GOPs in congress, America surges forward one step at a time.

    Don't bet against America.

    The percent of the eligible workforce that's employed today, is exactly the same as it was when the unemployment rate peaked at 10.0% back in October of 2009... And this is what you call surging forward one step at a time?

    Really?

    LMAO
