    There are a lot of federal doctrines and state laws, you have given no definition of either.

    Still 2.5 applicants for every job. Although the economy is recovering, that recovery is weak.

    And he won't....Blowing smoke is endless, having to actually lay out what you are saying is daunting, and likely couldn't be done in his case.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

The media will report that 500,000 jobs were created but they will not report that 750,000 jobs were lost - which if we use realistic math and not that Common Core bull**** would equate into a 250,000 net loss on jobs.
    The headline figure we're discussing is a net figure. NET. InterNET. Basketball NET.

    Here's a good read for you : http://www.bls.gov/news.release/arch...t_02062009.pdf

    It's the jobs report from January of '09. It says we lost 598,000 positions. Does that mean that not a single person found a job during that time period?

    Negative. Unemployment benefits don't even enter the jobs picture. They aren't used. This is explicitly stated by the folks who actually tally the figures.

    Because unemployment insurance records relate only to persons who have applied for such benefits, and since it is impractical to actually count every unemployed person each month, the Government conducts a monthly sample survey called the Current Population Survey (CPS) to measure the extent of unemployment in the country.

    The concept is employment at will. Why not get a clue along with a Cause.

    I believe it would be simpler if anyone filing for unemployment is presumed to be otherwise not employed in the market for labor in any at-will employment State.

    You do absolutely amaze me.

    You don't even understand the difference between a gain and a loss which makes me at a loss of words here.

    It's ****ing weird.... 500 minus 750 does not translate into 250, however the government and their love fest for Obama and progressives deceptively portrays that it does. Now, you can bet your ass that if a republican was president the media would say 250 jobs were lost instead of saying 500 jobs were "created." Furthermore the best part of their propaganda is their language - they use the word "created" as if the government created jobs or Obama himself created jobs..

    You cant get unemployment if you didn't previously have a job...

    It's not like some homeless guy can walk into the unemployment office and apply for unemployment and they will just give it to him.... Hell in most cases employers will deny unemployment to previous employees, that lost their job...
