    Fallacies can be used as diversions, but I would suspect that truth would make a more diverting diversion.

    How does that have anything to do with what we're talking about though?
    I have been discussing the concept of supply side economics supplying us with better governance at lower cost through simplification of our public policy choices.

    Solving simple poverty when due to a simple lack of income that would normally be obtained in a more efficient market labor through unemployment compensation that clears our poverty guidelines is one example

    We could be solving two dilemmas at once, at the rock bottom cost of a form of minimum wage that could be as simple to administer.

    They claim on one hand that 288,000 jobs were created...and then on the other that 73,000 jobs were lost.

    The BLS is a joke. They do FAR more harm to America then good by twisting the numbers to make the flawed positions of those with power seem more successful then they really are (IMO).

    Please keep your (supposed) ex-bureaucratic, trained minion opinions to yourself (as far as telling me is concerned)...I have no interest in them until you open your mind.
    You only pop your head up around here to spew forth your bureaucratic Mumbo jumbo to (I assume) pad your own ego.
    'Oh look, a commoner who I can make look silly by showing them my vast knowledge of government trained-minion double-speak and technical blather...how fun.'



    Good day.
    Do you really think nobody notices that when you can't intelligently respond to my posts you resort to personal attacks?
    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.

    One - why should I care much what a bunch of faceless nobodies on a chat forum think? They should not much care what I think about them either.
    I am not here to make friends...I am here to learn, teach and kill time.

    Two - I already showed what a joke the BLS is when they say on one hand that 288,000 jobs were created and then turn around and say that 73,000 jobs were lost.
    Those are facts (the joke part is my interpretation).

    Three - although you are not rude (which I give you great credit for), the only time I see you on here is to correct people with your government techno-speak.
    And my assumption is you do it to pad your ego...if not, then why not just post the data without putting others down (I am NOT referring to our dealings - just your dealings I see you have with others).

    You could post 'for the record'.

    But no...you always seem to do it in a confrontational way.

    And usually when people do that, it is to make themselves feel better by trying to make others feel worse.

    THAT is what I object to...not the information you post (I welcome that)...it's the way and the bias with which you post it.


    Good day.

    No, I'm saying no one should bother taking the time to explain something to a person who admits they'll just call the person explaining a liar anyways.

    It doesn't matter what is said or what the reason would be, you would just call them a liar. Your opinion is basically worthless and you aren't interested in facts which don't conform to your preconceived notions. So why waste time with you?

    Give myself a cookie because I read? Do you realize how silly that sounds?

    Both? Then again, does it really matter when you only want to believe one thing anyways?
    What do you want from me? Go bother someone else with your vitriol.

    I believe the right is being disingenuous when claiming we need to reduce social spending on the least wealthy.

    Yet apparently, all you have are words, with no details or plans.

    it helps to have a clue and a Cause.

    The study found that UI benefits:

    reduced the fall in GDP by 18.3%. This resulted in nominal GDP being $175 billion higher in 2009 than it would have been without unemployment insurance benefits. In total, unemployment insurance kept GDP $315 billion higher from the start of the recession through the second quarter of 2010;

    kept an average of 1.6 million Americans on the job in each quarter: at the low point of the recession, 1.8 million job losses were averted by UI benefits, lowering the unemployment rate by approximately 1.2 percentage points;

    made an even more positive impact than in previous recessions, thanks to the aggressive, bipartisan effort to expand unemployment insurance benefits and increase eligibility during both the Bush and Obama Administrations. “There is reason to believe,” said the study, “that for this particular recession, the UI program provided stronger stabilization of real output than in many past recessions because extended benefits responded strongly.”

    have a multiplier effect of 2.0: for every dollar spent on unemployment insurance, this report finds an increase in economic activity of two dollars.
