    So anyone recalls that mostly people who were better off four years ago were getting in line to get TARP bail-out checks. Everyone else was already starting to become unemployed. This is all pre-Obama-Biden!

    Unemployment in August 2008, The Editor's Desk

    The Romney-Ryan brand is based upon the Reagan Trajectory of giving what federal deficit there is to the already prosperous! Bain Capital is about business: Taking what funds there are and giving them away to the already prosperous.

    That kind of business was already being felt, four years ago! See in the link!

    Obama-Biden-Pelosi-Reid took a lot of what money there was not, and provided the Refundable "Make Work Pay Tax Credit" instead. The entire marketplace got some extra money, not just the mega-tiny niche that Romney-Ryan want prosperous.

    Already shown, and worse within weeks of that linked report of August, 2008, the impact of Romney-Ryan would be shown, and really big-time.

    Directly, Intentionally, Causing That is what those kinds of households are about! Helter-Skelter, family values!

    Actually, there were more people employed before Obama/Biden than there are now. In fact, there are 119,000 fewer people working now than just last month. See for yourself:

    It's all there, that the reason they can 'say' the unemployment rate's down is because they fabricate it using a shrunken workforce.

    Stupidly ignoring matters of fact fits the Stupid Romney-Ryan Brand! In August, 2008, unemployment was rising--and events were about to become colossal! In now after Obama-Biden-Pelosi-Reid the numbers are headed into the opposite direction!

    Stupid-To-The-Extreme, Rep. Paul Ryan, even sees a Budget Savings in Medicare, with increased services then made available in Health Care, as a bad thing!

    Mostly, humans make use budget savings for other things.

    Romney-Ryan goes, "Oh, What's The Need For Any, At Any Rate! Our Rich people need the federal spending!"

    (Many understand that surveys are snapshot event: Even in August! Direction, however, is clearly shown, and compared with August, 2008!)

    So obama's labor department claims 96,000 new jobs and the unemployment rate has fallen from 8.3 to 8.1% but makes no mention of the 368,000 that gave up looking for work last month.
    This information is all over the web for those who care to look, but in order to avoid the protests of those who refuse to open a link to FoxNews or Heritage Foundation, I'll link to HuffPo, the Chicago Tribune and The bureau of Labor Statistics.

    From a HuffPo article:


    Chicago Tribune
    The 96,000 job growth number will likely be revised downward as well. Typically, after a guesstimate designed for a press release to make the President look more effective, the numbers are finally set lower by 10 to 20%.

    ". . .The Crash of 1929 got off to a much faster start, but by now we have caught up. . . ." is all about March 5, 2009.

    Crash Of 2008 Now Worse Than Crash Of 1929 - Business Insider

    That was Obama-Biden's, "First 12 days." And then on the 13th day, Obama-Biden rested, the stock market bottomed, and now four years later: S&P has more than doubled.

    Likely even Moses would notice, "A Lot of Change You Can Believe In(?)!"

    Other people seem to have noticed this: If in fact the actual at-work labor force has declined. Mostly, retired people do not go on-stage, nodding off in front of millions, talking to an empty chair. Even I myself will likely be a part of the retired Boomer genre, one month after Bill Clinton's birthday, at the same age. Age 66 is it for us.

    When Little Hoarding Annie, even, delivered the "Strangelove Address" at RNC--money got as much of a mention as anything else. The focus on the money for only a few is the Bain Capital problem with Romney-Ryan. Other people don't work for a living, either!

    Even the CNBC nonsense-makers have discribed this summer as, "The Rally That Nobody Wanted!" Likely it was major unexpected! "Sell in May, Stay Away!" v. "Hell(?)! No! We Won't Go!"

    Anyone has to think in Epic Extravaganza--More than an Eastwood Movie--terms: When thinking about this economy. Beverly Hills ratcheted up the Epicenter Event Level: One whole point, just this morning!

    Likely little animals are headed for the border, even now!

    Ah. So all those folks that lost a job from '08 to '09--
    [​IMG]
    --were really just a huge gang of people that all at once decided to retire right when Obama got elected.


    Does this by any chance include the 581,000 additional people the BLS said weren't in the work force since just last month?

    500,000 people leaving the job-market is only 10,000 people per state. California has a lot more people, so in some states that could be as few as Aunt Marge and Uncle John: Leaving the Work Force. In Montana, Jane Fonda may have quit her job(?)! There is one woman who can no longer ask mom and dad for a start-up loan(?)! Good Ol' 139813, right there in the poster, she was!

    In fact, in California it could also be a lot of people, crossing the borders into Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, and clearly, Mexico. City of Los Angeles has noticed the drop the school enrollments in the Hispanic neighborhoods. There is a decline in youth labor force participation--possibly having left for parts unknown.

    Along other parts of the International Border: It could even be evidence of an expanded gang war among Cartels(?).

    It is not entirely known just who is counting, or even just who is getting counted(?)! Some may have just run to higher ground!

    L. A. Unified School District Enrollment, 2002: 747,000.
    L. A. Unified School District Enrollment, 2010: 672,000.

    Anyone would notice that in just eight years, a disappearing youth labor market of 75,000 people, in just one city, in just one state.

    You never do know what may show up later, of course: Noting a consistent improvement i the U. S. economy?

    Maybe they'll all be back, next month!
