    unless the republican party in detroit was prevented from voting, participating in the legeslature or the process of governing, or banned as a political party, i don't understand how you can call democrats dictators because they did not have Absolute power.

    unless there is evidence you can provide that can show me otherwise.

    The civilian labor force decreased by 37,000 to 155.80 million in July, while those not in the labor force rose by 240,000 to 89.96 million.

    I know the government does a sample poll but it's like 50,000 people hence moot. 99.9% of the data is using the formula is factored by dividing the current unemployed by those receiving unemployment benefits..

    Polls are absolutely worthless junk data.

    There is no word in the English language that I'm familiar with that defines "democratic dictation."

    The only difference between a dictator and progressive strongholds is democracy - other than that everything else is absolutely comparable.
    Um if Detroit was a dictatorship there would have been no elections at all.

    The republicans competed in elections with democrats in detroit, and are able to win elections on the city council level. Absolute power means having nothing or no one being able to stop the actions of the entity in power.

    elections are not a sign of a dictatorship.

    you think that just because one party won elections in a city for 70 years running, that makes that city a dictatorship? then by that definition does that imply that the states of Oklahoma, Wyoming, Idaho, Alabama, and Mississippi are dictatorships run by republicans? maybe the reason why republicans were not able to win elections in Detroit was because voters were not convinced by the Republicans campaign promises or canidates and elected the democrats because the democrats ran better campaigns?

    I agree, however, I don't know of any "major cities" that are.

    Yeah, then the consequences of Bush's failed economic policies eclipsed his failed foreign policies.

    Only a conservative would call that the good old days.

    60,000 households, so about 120,000 people.

    Where on earth did you hear that nonsense? And it doesn't even make sense....divide total unemployed by those receiving benifits is the UE rate? Huh? That would be around 30%.

    Polls are absolutely worthless junk data.
    And your alternative suggestion would be? And how is =/- 2% for the number of unemployed "useless?"
    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.

    Considering there is no word in the ****ing English language to define "This city/town/states policies have been dictated by one political party for the last X amount of years" It is appropriate to use the word "dictatorship."

    I understand the definition of the word "dictator."

    You do realize that polling "60,000 households" would be illogical and ignorant to determine the unemployment rate in a nation of 300,000,000 people right?? That's why the ignorant present economic formula is used.

    I'm going to digress a bit more from the subject for a second and ask how the **** you concluded that 60,000 "households" equates into 120,000 people?

    Where on earth did I hear that "nonsense" - in my statistics class'- that's where..

    You ever been?
