    So why did they cook the books to make the Labor Force Participation rate lower? It seems odd that you claim cooking the books but then cite the very same people as support for your position.
    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.

    That is certainly an original response!
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I know you're being facetious and sarcastic with your comment, but it makes one ponder... What will happen to the job market when the President makes all the new illegal democrat voters, oops I mean immigrants, in to take the jobs, driving down wages, and then have to be counted in the tallies?

    I know, I know... it's only true if it's bad news Obama.

    To those of us that are not abject Obama haters, this is fantastic news!
    All this means, is that more people stopped looking for a job.

    I LOVE IT !!

    If this was President Romney, the right would be celebrating on the street and building monuments to Romney. Regardless who is the president, this is great news for the country when we need it.

    Where does it say that?

    The civilian labor force participation rate, at 62.7 percent, changed little in
    September. The employment-population ratio was 59.0 percent for the fourth
    consecutive month.

    damn, and i thought it expressed a reality that the percentage of those seeking employment had declined

    i strongly suspect that had this percentage increased, you would have been in a thread castigating Obama for that indicator of economic decline
