    Ok, wait a second. The unemployment rate went up because the number of jobs created did not keep up with the size of the labor force. Thats exactly the situation the rest of America finds itself in.

    Nevertheless, nifty's right. I don't see how gaining jobs in a state means that NO ONE is losing their job.
    You don't quite get it! He stated that we're losing 400 jobs a day here in Louisiana... quite frankly he pulled that number out of his ass! Nifty's quote that we're losing 400 a day but gaining 3700 jobs net is bs. Biden doesn't have that kind of detailed information... he just got caught with another dumb Bidenism. But don't worry, the main stream media won't give him a hard time on it!

    I think that the way it works is that once Obama becomes resurrected as the AntiChrist then he will completely control Biden's thoughts. Sounds like an improvement to me!

    I mean come on, I don't think I would be holding up Louisiana as some pillar of free market conservatism. If it were not for all that money flowing in from the Federal Taxpayers, that state would be a like a third world country.

    Per Capita GDP in LA is 28,500 a year (PPP). When you figure in the billions in federal reconstruction money that has flowed into that state since 2005, that state is really underperforming economically. Its pretty much living off of taxpayers in other states.
    You're correct in that post-Katrina money is giving us a lift, but keep in mind that our previous useless Democrat governor Blanco (a total zero, regardless of what letter would be behind her name) was mismanaging Louisiana's budget as she acted like the all-powerful Queen Blanco. I will put my money on Jindal over the long haul - he's smart, ethical, and conservative. Let's see where he takes us during these tough times.

    But the labor force for the reporting period increased to the point where the thousands of additional jobs still doesn't bring unemployment down?

    This sounds fishy. I find the notion that the labor force is increasing so fast that it can cause unemployment to jump despite job increases a bit fishy.

    It was Fulll Idiot mode.
    Biden knows it well.
    Is a frequent visitor there.

    "What's he doing?" asked Biden.
    Well Joe, it seems they are creating jobs.

    Is it any wonder Biden's office didn't reply?
    Will the press ask the Obama about this?

    Pretty soon Obama is going to take away Biden's right to free speech...LOL.

    Don't blame me, I wanted to let it sink into the ocean.

    The rest of the country is seeing its total employment actually decrease. LA is alone (or almost alone) in seeing its total employment actually increase, albeit not at a pace sufficient to outweigh total growth in the labor force.
