    The new employment numbers shows that thousands of workers quit looking. So the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1%.

    368,000 people stopped working last month.

    Yup, we're going in the right direction.......

    If 368,000 decided to stop working in August what was the reason?

    Could it be....

    The threat of higher taxes
    Qualifying for disability was made easier
    More are not paying taxes
    A lack of hope for the future


    So how is this going to help cut the debt?

    The top reason is everything is so expensive that you have to apply for government aid and quit your job.

    It's good news to obama. His goal is 0 unemployment because everyone has shifted over to welfare. Has anyone figured out what happens when there are too few people working to keep the national doors open? When 50% becomes 75% on benefits and no one thinks they should be wage slaves?

    Lenin had an answer.

    Why do we need people working anyway.
    The Obama plan is easier.
    Less people work.
    More government checks go out because Nancy Pelosi
    says we get more bang for the buck.
    Obama takes more money from the so called rich to fuel it all.
    And if we gotta borrow $.50 on every dollar who in Obama's administration gives a shit.
    They don't seem the least bit interested in paying any of it back anyway.

    I cannot believe that anyone unemployed ever stop looking for work? How do they measure those not looking for work?

    Unemployment insruance, welfare and food stamps don't even come near to living. Not even a mere existence. Plus single people wihout children cannot get welfare so they can only get food stamps and only if they have a place to cook. Homeless only qualify for soup kitchens. What do jobless do when unemployment checks run out? They become homeless.
    Government don't just throw out checks to anyone. :mad:
    It is mind boggling how stupid right wing idiots are.

    You would make more running a lemonade stand than collecting "government aid"

    3.5 million people experience homelessness in a given year proof that "government aid" is not as available as some idiots think and 1.6 million homeless children. Some on the streets begging and selling their bodies. Not to mention almost 200,000 homeless vets.
