Liberalismódividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.
I'll ask in a different manner: If near 40% not working means "serious economic issues", then are you claiming we had serious economic issues every month before 1968 when the participation rate first hit 60%? Or will you admit that there are other factors than economic conditions that can affect the participation?and I'm not sure I'd be proud of any number that is almost 40 years old, also one which was at a time when women were just entering the workforce in mass. Now, if you want to argue the merits of why women felt the need to do so, we can...
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.
It'd not lie - its basic fact.....
The basic formula to establish unemployment is workforce divided by unemployment.... That says nothing abut the MILLIONS that have lost there benefits and are caught in a void or those who have previously lost their jobs..... It's a ****ing scam given the present formula that neglects 70% of those without work or are doing cash jobs on the side to make ends meet. Lets not forget these "jobs gains" are nothing more than "net gains" and not gross gains or losses.
This is a double dip recession - and potentially a depression,
It's amazing how people ignore reality but only pay attention to numbers.
All I see is businesses closing, pawn shops opening and corporate businesses sustaining,
This is not a "growing economy" this is a stagnant economy.
