    November and December traditionally are months when many seasonal Jobs are added, a large percentage in the Retail Industry- the figures being quoted should be seasonally adjusted if possible to portray an accurate picture.

    Some of you seem out of touch.

    Everything is online. And 98% of the postings you see online (monster, career builder, job fox, Craig's list, etc) are no longer active...they've been filled, or the job no longer exists. Of the remaining 2%, half are scams. 1 out of over 1,000 listings or so is an actual, boba fife job. And if the posting is over 2 days old...you're too late.
    According to the BLS, there are generally 4 million job openings. Facts are facts, not anecdotes. And thats before you consider people creating their own jobs.

    Anytime a number is given, then later adjusted up or down, it is prime indicator that the numbers are being manipulated.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Do they lie? Yes. Is EVERYTHING a lie? No.

    Again, nobody of sanity even on the right disputes the BLS numbers which show BOTH figures of unemployment, the U3 and U6.

    Yes, politicians lie (all of them), the trick is to know WHAT they are lying about. The numbers as a whole are not disputed even by the majority of the right. Yes, there will be a conspiracy theorist that thinks EVERYTHING is a lie.

    Love how you set that up there...'No one can disagree with me or they are themselves, unstable, kooks, liars....etc'

    What a joke.

    I'm sorry, but if someone says "EVERYTHING the government says is lies", yes they are a kook. Seriously, did you just write that?

    Yes, the government lies, but not about EVERY SINGLE thing. Come on.

    Well, the distinction "EVERY SINGLE thing" is YOUR descriptor. I didn't say that...My sentence was direct, and simple enough to understand, and you confirmed it.
