    It's actually because I've already answered it twice, including in a post he later quoted. Proof provided below.

    You replied to one of my posts in which I answered it. Don't blame me for your lack of reading comprehension.

    Aww, hell, I'm tired of your trolling and/or laziness. I'll even circle the relevant part, because I'm not sure if you possess what's necessary to find it on your own.

    So either you obviously lack reading comprehension or you were trolling. Neither one would surprise me.

    Ask that in reverse, and I think you'll get an answer. Some conservatives (don't look in the mirror whatever you do) suffer from the same affliction you mention, only the other way around.



    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Sorry, don't remember seeing that.

    I don't have much respect for you, so I tend to speed read over your posts, skipping over many words.


    So, let me get this straight...you could have just said 'yes'.

    ...instead of going through ALL this nonsense?

    Noted.


    So Slyfox696 thinks a jobs report that adds only one job is a good report.


    Have a nice day.

    While I appreciate your apology, if you had just taken a few moments to review the thread, like I constantly told you to, you'd have seen it.

    I don't have much respect for you
    I assure you the feeling is mutual. I tend to not respect posters who lack reading comprehension and are too lazy to do their own research, all the while wasting time on frivolous and ultimately useless technicalities. Which describes you perfectly.

    So, let me get this straight...you could have just said 'yes'.

    ...instead of going through ALL this nonsense?
    No, you don't have that straight. So allow me to set you straight.

    If you possessed a modicum of reading comprehension, or the integrity to debate honestly and not be lazy in this thread about it, you could have had your answer long ago.

    Noted.
    Good. Maybe next time you'll take the time to read someone's answer when you ask them a question.

    So Slyfox696 thinks a jobs report that adds only one job is a good report.
    Ahh, more dishonesty. Not surprising.

    By the way, since you obviously care about frivolous and useless technicalities:

    "Anytime we add JOBS..."

    Plural:

    1. Relating to or composed of more than one member, set, or kind: the plural meanings of a text; a plural society.
    2. Grammar Of or being a grammatical form that designates more than one of the things specified.


    So while you take some time to actually read answers to the questions you ask, perhaps you can study up on what plural words are.


    So, now that I've exposed your silliness to probably no one who cares, I'm done with you. You're obviously just trolling at this point. You got your answer, for the third time remember, so I think there is nothing else left for me on which to make you look ridiculous.

    Have a great day.

    I doubt it.

    Why waste time reading posts from people you don't respect much?

    "Anytime we add JOBS..."
    Okay,

    So Slyfox696 thinks a jobs report that adds only two or more jobs is a good report.

    LOLOLOLOL.

    Two jobs created is a good report...lol...that's a good one.

    America needs well over 100,000 new jobs a month just to keep pace with the population growth.

    And Slyfox696 thinks only adding 2(?!?) jobs is a 'good report'

    NOTED......


    Let's see if he sticks with that when a Rep is in the WH?

    The authoritarian credo is kinda hard to shake. That’s why I said its notta yes or no question. Our world is mostly shades of grey,not black or white.Sadly the Don Quixote’s of the world will continue flailing at the yes or no windmills.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    It's really not. Most things related to politics are not simple, but it is customary for Americans to want to reduce them into simplistic terms. But then you have people like DA, who love to be deceptive and misrepresent positions, who asks what appears to be a simplistic question, but is really designed to launch into a more complex/detailed tirade.

    The more detailed answer is that while this is not an ideal or perfect jobs report, it certainly is better than a report which shows losses and this report is generally taken as a continued sign of an improving economy.

    Because they don't wish to debate honestly. Even now, look at where he just admitted he repeatedly asked a question he didn't care to read, and wouldn't have discovered (despite me posting it two times previously) if he had taken the time to look. It's just blatant dishonesty and I consider it a lack of integrity in debating.

    Even though I truly enjoy talking politics, it's people like him who ruin it for those interested an honest intellectual discussion.

    Please address my actual post. True or False: Is the Labor Force currently increasing or decreasing? You seem to have been claiming it's decreasing.

    Oh, and where on earth are you getting the idea that the number of discouraged is only the number who became discouraged that month? It makes no sense to reach that conclusion.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Yes, the labor force is increasing as it should due to population growth. The problem is the labor force isn't keeping up with the population growth including people entering the work force. Discouraged workers is a monthly number not a cumulative one.
