    The job situation is what it is. I've posted the data. I take the position that we'll need several months of growth before we have anything truly significant and even then, we're going to have historic unemployment numbers come election time.

    That's never good news for the party in power.
    Yes you certainly are spinning. We went from losing 663k jobs 1 year ago, to gaining over 100k jobs(not counting the temp jobs). Close to an 800k difference. You don't miraculously go from bleeding 250k + jobs a month to gaining big numbers of jobs a month overnight, but the trend has been for the losses to slow, and now starting to gain jobs. That is good news.

    Yes, unemployment is going to remain high for some time. Yes, we are not recovered from our economic troubles. But we are gaining ground, and trends are going the right way. To focus simply on the negative is pure spin, trying to control the message for political reasons.

    Yes - 1.5 trillion. Which is not 3.5 trillion.

    "The new requirement comes with lots of exemptions, however, and it's telling that it's part of legislation to increase the nation's debt limit by $1.9 trillion, an adjustment that's necessary because budget deficits are expected to reach $1.56 trillion this fiscal year and $1.27 trillion next year.

    The government will be able to borrow as much as $14.3 trillion, enough to pay its bills at least through this year. Without the new limit, that authority probably would have been exhausted later this month."

    Okay, so they are expected to reach 1.56 trillion. Not 3.5 trillion. And then 1.27 trillion NEXT YEAR. Also not 3.5 trillion.



    Wildly overstating your case is also a bad thing.
    When you spend 1.5 trillion MORE than what you already spend and have allocated...

    ah..whats the use...liberal ideologues swallow anything thier messiah feeds them. I guess that 13.5 (soon to be 15) trillion dollars in debt is ALL republican doing...and doesnt matter. And truth be told...when you are an under or unemployed crippled dependent pet...it DOESNT...

    Were you equally outraged that Bush doubled the debt during his reign?
    Hell yes I was...thats PRECISELY why I am a libertarian. Left the party in 2003. I am CONSISTENTLY critical of BOTH parties. Or have you missed that? My first posts on this thread pointed to 4 years of foolish spending with regard to the housing crisis. I dont CARE about the parties...I care that we keep spending ourselves into oblivion and eventually it will destroy us.

    What does "budget" mean? Spending? Deficit?

    You cannot have a proper derivative without the proper scale. So until you provide it, your graph is nothing more than a skewed representation of the data.

    Total employed labor force and the respective months associated with the data is a necessary. Why half ass it?
    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.

    It would look the same if it started at zero vs. above? Hardly.

    Whatever, November is already in the bag.

    There is no joy, just solemn resolution. The sad thing is that Democrats are taking most of the brunt of Obama's bad decisions so far, but they're too dumb to realize it.
