    Three posts, all defensive responses to a mainly informative OP. Interesting.

    It wasn't informative, it was stoopid.

    There are over 2,500 employees at the BLS. The idiot blogger found one that actually still works there that contributed to Obama. There were two others found that contributed to Republicans.

    It's meaningless and breathtakingly retarded to think a single employee in 2,500 can have an affect on the numbers because he tossed some bucks to a democrat or a republican.

    There's something in ethics called__ CONFLICT OF INTEREST. I know that means nothing to you and all. But just so you're aware that it is an ethical concept.

    So please post for us a copy of the conditions of employment at the BLS that prohibit campaign contributions as a 'conflict of interest'.

    Claiming that the BLS is rigging the data is 'mainly informative'.

    You know I've seen a few fairly smart rightwing trolls who acted stupidly, even though they knew better, just to annoy liberals, and,

    I've also seen quite a few who were genuinely stupid enough to believe the annoying crap they posted.

    I now have enough information to confidently categorize you as among the latter.
