    Lol...mass hysteria event. Its happening now.

    8,500,000 people have dropped out of the work force, given up and they're not counted.

    You lack of objectivity, your apparent pathalogical death grip on a bankrupt agenda, your cherry picking of data just so you can convince yourself ( your'e not making an impression on any one with a brain ) that you haven't wasted countless hours parroting tallking points is a testament to the desperation the left is feeling now.

    Can you dispute my comment? The U.S. created more than 2 million jobs in the past year. I understand such a fact is completely inconvenient given the nature of your partisanship.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Of course progressives will somehow try to portray that it can...

    I love how they never talk about how many jobs were lost. Sorry but 1 + -3 is -2.. but hip-hop hurray for the +1.
    Perhaps you need to rethink your ability to use math to explain a point regarding macro economic phenomena.

    That is one of the dumbest answers I have ever heard.

    The formula that illustrates the problem has nothing to do with fractions.

    If you were being humorous my apologies...

    I never brought up macroeconomics, as a matter of fact I brought up microeconomics and clearly stated the government needs to adhere to those ideas.

    One cannot spend more than what they take in... Apparently that is a difficult concept to understand for some.

    Comparing the government to a household makes no sense. I continue to find your comments hilarious; we are discussing unemployment which IS a macro topic.

    Please, present your understanding of how the economy works...

    Maybe this will help people who are having trouble understanding how unemployment increases when jobs increase.

    U3 rate = number of people unemployed/number of people in the labor force

    January 2013: 12332000/155654000 = 0.079227

    December 2013: 12206000/155511000 = 0.07849

    As we can see, the number of people who entered the labor force increased by a lesser rate than the number of people who are unemployed.

    That is a strange request. I will ask you this: does a household have the ability to issue debt in a perpetual manner? Does a households income depend (in a linear fashion) on the income level of the aggregate economy?
