    See now, this should be a question. Yes, Con, according to the standard measure, in Sept of 2001 there were 131M nonfarm employed.


    Do you know the difference between the reports in BLS?
    In BLS? I understand what is used as a standard, apples to apples measurement.

    I wished you did.

    And the report used for the unemployment percentage shows 137 million people working so I prefer apples to apples.

    FFS Con, your 137 for 1/01 is not nonfarm, it is not comparable to the numbers from the OP, nor comparable to the numbers I am talking about...not apples to apples at all.

    You are doing your best to derail this thread to divert from the fact that Obama's economic results have been terrible at best. Whether or not Bush had plus or minus job growth is irrelevant to the fact that Obama has added over 6 trillion dollars to the debt to generate 177000 fewer unemployed after 4 plus years of his economic policies. There are still 2 million fewer employed people today than when the recession began and last month, four years after the recession ended over 1 million Americans were discouraged and not counted as unemployed. U-6 rate after all this Fed money and Obamanomics is 14.3% and that is good enough for liberals with such low standards.

    Yes, it worked for Clinton, gave us a GOP Congress and the rest is history.
    Unlike the current donothing wingers in congress they learned that its better to work together for the betterment of the nation.SAD.

    What is it about Obama that generates this kind of loyalty where people like you pick and choose the data you want to use?
    Hisses the king of cherry picking data.

    Guess what happens around September with the part time jobs? Liberals don't have a clue but I will help them. They will not turn into full time jobs. Many of them will go away.

    Now in phonyland, this job report may be the best in 15 years. But it's that way because the puppet masters have told the puppets that, not because the economy has come roaring back. Besides, we've been hearing those same type line of lies for a little over four years now.

    The topic of the thread IS how QE/monetary policy should not be ended now since we are still in a very soft/depressed demand economy.



    Whether or not Bush had plus or minus job growth is irrelevant to the fact that Obama has added over 6 trillion dollars to the debt to generate 177000 fewer unemployed after 4 plus years of his economic policies.
    Such a stupid comment, a very small amount of total federal spending in the Obama fiscal years has been devoted to jobs.....and you certainly are in NO position to talk about spending on jobs....YOU AND YOUR PARTY WANT NO SPENDING ON JOBS



    There are still 2 million fewer employed people today than when the recession began
    And nearly 100% of the job losses occurred during the Bush fiscal years.



    and last month, four years after the recession ended over 1 million Americans were discouraged and not counted as unemployed.U-6 rate after all this Fed money and Obamanomics is 14.3% and that is good enough for liberals with such low standards.
    AGAIN.....you certainly are in NO position to talk about spending on jobs....YOU AND YOUR PARTY WANT NO SPENDING ON JOBS.
