    Yes, yes they are. When a jobs report is released, it is jobs added minus jobs subtracted. After taking the jobs added and subtracting the jobs lost, we gained a net total of 217,000.

    No, I understand what these numbers reflect, and more importantly, what they don't reflect.

    Fortunately, the nation has figured out the BS being spewed, and it's being entirely ignored. That's what happens when you don't tell the truth over and over and over and over and over about everything.

    People know the puke running the show, and they've tuned him out.

    Yes, they plainly are. If what you claim were true, than months in which the bureau reported a negative number would suggest that not a single job was created. This is painfully obvious.

    Until you people start using real numbers, which should include the millions Obama has chased out of the workforce, you're simply propagating a lie. Again and again, you choose to ignore those that dropped out of the work force altogether. They're still here, bud.
    The BLS has not altered their methodology since Obama took office. You simply have zero clue what you're talking about. I doubt you've so much as read up on what and what is not included in the numbers.

    And that doesn't equal the number of kids that will graduate from college this month. So what?

    Meanwhile, the number of people receiving government welfare is skyrocketing.

    This is just more boilerplate rhetoric. It's getting easier and easier to spot folks who are flying by the seat of their pants on this stuff.

    If one net job is created, and three kids graduate from college, and 10 people were applying for that job.......what have you accomplished?

    Learn an iota about real-world economics, and stop investing in shell-game reports.

    So, it means you were wrong. That's what it means.

    I guess when confronted with being wrong, it's far easier to present red herrings than to simply admit your error.

    37.2%: Percentage Not in Labor Force Remains at 36-Year High | CNS News


    The percentage of American civilians 16 or older who do not have a job and are not actively seeking one remained at a 36-year high in May, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    In December, April, and now May, the labor force participation rate has been 62.8 percent. That means that 37.2 percent were not participating in the labor force during those months.

    Before December, the last time the labor force participation rate sunk as low as 62.8 percent was February 1978, when it was also 62.8 percent. At that time, Jimmy Carter was president.

    Obamas ability to be portrayed as a winner is staggering given the facts shows just how incompetent he actually is.

    No, I just refuse to believe anything my government wants me to. Open your damn eyes. People are hurting, the same people your party claims to care about and you have brainwashed to support you.
