    The two are unrelated. Different surveys, time periods, sample universes, and definitions.
    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.

    I probably have hundreds of questions, but I can't ask them of you, because you'll just reply the same way, not answering them at all.

    Like right now.

    What the heck does: "it means the laws of demand and supply, apply." mean in the context of my question.

    You're not even replying to what I post anymore...

    It means you need to understand something about Capitalism.

    We see that people blindly accepting that the 288K Jobs number without question shows exactly how badly we need the explanation...

    Umm, it was reported right along with the jobs numbers, at least in most reports I've seen...

    You also have to understand something about the laws of demand and supply.

    It may be, because I am talking about lowering our tax burden through public policy choices that are market friendly; what are you talking about?
