    Well... There's always next months report... I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    However if there is a carpenter job in NY then you move. Further if you are a carpenter and there are welding jobs in NY I would learn to weld. A person can sit at home forever and put every excuse on the planet in front of you for not getting a job.

    Could you be more specific and tell me exactly what I said in that post that you disagree with and/or consider to be "BS"?

    edit: I went back and re-read the report and found that the 7 to 1 ratio that I stated was incorrect... I used the wrong figure (490,000) to calculate that and the correct ratio is actually 4 to 1. I stand corrected.

    Just as I thought... It was a baseless, partisan attack that you couldn't justify, which explains perfectly your choice to respond with another insult.

    Look in the mirror when you say partisan.

    Then you are free to provide another source that shows differently than what I posted. I won't hold my breathe that you will, but hey, who knows.

    Don't know of too many even on the right that dispute the BLS figures that shows unemployment increaseing.

    Where did anyone say to stay on unemployment and pay NO bills? Sorry, but uprooting your family and abandoning a home that you are underwater on to work at a job that you will never pay off your debt on is just silly. Sorry ain't going to happen.

    Staying on unemployment insurance is really bright. Sit at home and do nothing including paying any bills with the amount you receive on unemployment.
    Right, because people on unemployment pay no bills whatsoever

    I don't trust a thing our government says. And that's from Obama on down

    That's just plainly wrong. No data to support that assertion whatsoever.
