    All I know is 2+2=4, you think 2+2=3. Whatever floats your boat.

    I've already stated 3 posts ago what U-6 was. If putting your spin on it makes you feel good, do it.

    Tell me more about what's not included. I'm fascinated.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think there's more people in Flint than North and South Dakota combined. LOL

    The unemployment rate is WAY higher than President Godfather has twisted it into with his job-killing, welfar-encouraging policies.

    The President doesn't author the jobs reports. The Bureau operates in the same manner as it did under Republican Presidents. In either event, it's safe to say you don't have a clue what you're talking about.

    A very good admission. Kudos.

    That's contrary to your vehement refusal in your prior post.

    Wow. Unemployment doesn't include those who are employed. Truly a dizzying point there. Next thing you'll tell me is that the number of dead do not include the living... mind blowing!


    There used to be a joke about union shops barring the removal copses from the factory floor until payday.

    On payday, the Supervisor was required to wave a paycheck in front of the "corpse". If the "corpse" reached for the check, then the supervisor was required to wait until the next payday and to perform the same exercise.

    In reaching for the Paycheck, the corpse demonstrated conclusively that there was a sign of life and that the union member was in fact alive and still working.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
