    However, the unemployment rate is the number of people out of work but who are actively looking. The government doesn’t count in that rate the now 6.3 million who have given up and stopped looking for work, but want jobs. That number has grown from 5.7 million in January 2009.
    So, this "improvement" in the unemployment rate is artificial -- it was due to workers giving up and dropping out of the labor force.

    I praise BHO visiting the troops no matter the politics
    Job report according to ADP is no existent for April
    News Headlines
    If this continues BHO loses in a land slide. I have down 31-19 right now

    This WH doesn't give a shit about these numbers.
    By the time the Obama handlers get done with this
    and the propaganda wing (MSNBC) get done they will
    make these numbers look positive for the Pres...

    The numbers aren't dismal but they aren't good either.

    FOX has a lot of nerve calling anyone a liar!!! :eusa_liar:

    First of all, the government does count that rate, it's the U-4 rate currently at 8.7%.
    And the number in Jan 2009 was 5.866 million and it is 6.041 million now. So in typical CON$ervoFascist fashion, 175 thousand got exaggerated into 600 thousand by the America-hating lying scum at FOX.

    The media will do there part
    The problem is there is so many people either not working or working for a whole lot less than they had been what the media says and no matter how much the "available work force" number helps, it is not going to matter
    Obama had his chance and he blew it. 2009 and 2010 should have been 100% about jobs
    Oil exploration (land base)
    Refineries
    Natural gas powered turbines to replace out-dated coal burners
    Nuclear power

    until we get this economy and some real GDP going this housing GLUT and all these people upside down on the credit, were done

    And that number of people in that boat is probably 3 times the number the UE rate is

    I know many people in the state I live in that voted for BHO, who not only vote for Romney, there voting GOP across the board as they did in 2010

    No amount of spammed spin can change those peoples or the ones they love lives

    ABC made a huge deal about gas dropping .04 a gallon last week, they even claimed that speculation had been brought under control because events in Iran had calmed
    Yet there has been no mention of the March Job numbers being revised down that I am aware of

    You got a link proving them to be a liar?
    Not sure I follow your logic.
    I willl have to re read the thread
    But numbers have been changed all-most every month and the one that gets me is the available work force number plummeting

    Thats what your claiming is not correct?, the available work force number
    that is very interesting

    2012 88784 88322 88288

    This is the number of people not in the labor force
    Holy shit from 09 to the present
    An I have heard allot of bad things about zero hedge, looks to me he was telling the truth
    86 million end of 2011
    88784 start of 2012
    He said it was 1.6 million, from Nov to Jan thats what it was

    No wonder the UE rate went from 9 to 8.6 over night

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You beat me to it....

    But I'll stand in for him......

    Bad news Republicans....well, actually...bad news Obama.....oh s*** !

    Obama is the democrats Reagan (if Reagan was also the name of the head of sanitation in Chicago).

    Obama has done a good job.....of blowing his mandate.

    Healthcare for all (but only if the SCOTUS agrees).

    Who cares about the Constitution....I only care about the Sermon on the Mount.

    and who didnt see this coming? and to think the leftys in this boards have been insulting us all year regarding the so called "economic growth" of 2012. I have taken my share of hits here, but let it slide cause I already had my facts right. I knew the jobs report was going to be bad for April,,,,so where are the Room Goats now? are they hiding? can't think of any excuse for back to back dismal months that were caused by Obama?
