    I mean you are constantly repeating that we need to take civics an econ classes, but you never seem to able to make a correlation argument for it. I love the comedic aspect.....but stop clowning around.
    It took me longer this time because I was in the mood to engage you in debate but that time is up, lost patience, bye. If you want to get back on topic I will see it and respond

    That was different and as soon as I can come up a reason why I'll get back to ya.
    For now let's just say it's different when the Demcrats control the WH and the Legislature.

    We have a sinking ship now unless you believe a 17 trillion debt and growing in a 15 trillion dollar a year economy can survive

    By the way, here are the numbers you want to ignore.



    Wonder what those numbers would be if the labor force grew at even the rate of population growth and rather than dropping out they were actually counted as unemployed, which they are
    LOL What is the reason you left off 2001?

    great, we added over 6 trillion to the debt to get back to the employment level we had when he took office. He has done a great job adding people to the welfare roles, the poverty roles, the disability roles, and getting people to drop out of the labor force.

    Because of the recession and 9/11. If you want the numbers I will give them to you but what purpose would it serve. I believe I have posted those numbers in the past. BLS dropped those numbers off and I didn't filter it back that far. I am sure you can do that

    So you're saying he's quite good at executing his plan. I have to agree. But he's had a lot of help.

    Play with the jobs calculator yourself.

    Jobs Calculator - Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
    Don't have to, just look at BLS.gov and get the answers, in December 2007 there were 146 million employed on a labor force of 153.9 whereas today that number is 143 million with a labor force of 155 million so pardon me if I don't get excited about employment growth that just returned to January 2009 levels in a labor force that hasn't kept up with population growth.
