    "To mark this Labor Day weekend, here's a roundup of 10 eye-popping statistics on the American jobs crisis. ... which hangs over President Obama as he gears up for his big jobs speech on Thursday (not to mention his reelection campaign).

    1. 25.3 million Americans: The true size of the unemployment crisis. This figure includes people who are out of work, forced to work part-time, or unable to find a full-time job, as well as those who want to work but have given up searching for a job in the past month,...

    2. 6.9 million jobs: How many fewer jobs there are today than in December 2007.

    3. Twenty-eight out of 32 months: The number of months since January 2009 that job growth failed to keep up with basic population growth (roughly 150,000 jobs a month).

    4. 16.7%: The jobless rate for African-Americans. Black unemployment is now at its highest in 27 years.

    5. 280,000: The number of jobs the American economy needs to add each month to fill its 11.3 million-job deficit by the middle of 2016.

    6. 35,000: The average number of jobs the economy actually added in the past three months."

    And....


    7. "...CNN fact-checked that claim and found it to be "not the whole picture." Instead, CNN found that there has been a net increase of just 300,000 non-farm payroll jobs since Obama took office. And if you count government jobs, there are actually 400,000 fewer people working today than in January 2009.

    8. "The figure of 4.5 million jobs is accurate if you look at the most favorable period and category for the administration. But overall, there are still fewer people working now than when Obama took office at the height of the recession."

    9. However, Obama's job growth percentages trail far behind those of some other recent presidents, including Bill Clinton (+2.60 percent and +1.60 percent), Ronald Reagan (+1.75 percent and +2.53 percent) and even Jimmy Carter (+2.30 percent)."

    I still think the country would be better in the long run with a third Carter term. Obama's so incompetent that his reelection would effectively kill the Ds as a national party and leave the LP and GOP as the two nationally viable parties.

    I don't doubt your facts, PC, but I doubt your contention that Romney presents anything resembling a coherent alternative. From what I understand, he either (1) proposes to increase the federal deficit even more through targetted tax cuts for rich folks, or (2) proposes to avoid increasing the deficit by "broadening" the tax base (that is, increasing taxes for the middle class).

    I honestly see nothing in Romney's "plan" that will help improve employment in any way.

    I am a conservative, rather than a Republican...

    Romney will be a better choice for this nation than Obama...
    ...as would multitudes of others.

    But....if Romney proceeds as you suggest, I, and, I am certain, many of his supporters will be posting criticisms on this board.


    I'm certain that you realize that the choices we have always come down to only two.
    It's the reason that over half of the delegates to the Democratic Convention...clearly cheated in the voice vote yesterday....

    ...and clearly opposed to "God" and "Jerusalem" being re-included in the platform....will still vote for the party candidate.

    Only two choices.




    But I'm betting that there were folks watching who will simply not vote.

    Let's examine this made up number.

    12.8 million unemployed
    8.2 million part time workers for economic reasons
    .85 million discouraged workers
    Seems to be several million short of 25.3 million, but who cares the Right always exaggerates, as soon as a Republican is elected we will never see the U-6 rate until another Democrat is elected.

    OK, you listed what Republicans did to ruin the economy. But you forgot the part about their policies that will help improve it. Unless they don't exist and it's just about "hate" Obama?

    No worries people...European Governments (who are all essentially bankrupt already) said they will bail out their system to keep it from collapsing...so the DOW has soared once again at the news that another government will give them taxpayer dollars to maintain their casino system.
    All is good.

    1. A conservative never stands so tall as when she stoops to help a liberal.

    So...let's begin.


    2. Had you been subject to even the most rudimentary schooling, you might have understood the use of quotation marks.

    "Use quotation marks [ “ ” ] to set off material that represents quoted or spoken language. Quotation marks also set off the titles of things that do not normally stand by themselves: short stories, poems, and articles. Usually, a quotation is set off from the rest of the sentence by a comma; however, the typography of quoted material can become quite complicated. Here is one simple rule to remember..."
    Quotation Marks

    The above as a case in point. The source of the quotation is the bottom line.


    No doubt you'll be awe-struck to find that clicking the link will take you to the very source...which you can verify, word for word. Quotation marks.


    2. "Let's examine this made up number..." you say.
    Well...lest you demand that I verify the material in the post, let's first notice the placement of quotation marks. Remember...the facet of literacy about which I've just instructed you?
    You do remember?
    Very good.

    3. The material is sourced from 'Mother Jones'.



    4. "Mother Jones (abbreviated MoJo) is an American independent news organization, featuring investigative and breaking news reporting on politics, the environment, human rights, and culture. Mother Jones has been nominated...blah blah blah." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Jones_(magazine)

    5. I understand your limitations, and rather than lose your attention here, let's review. You seem to be complaining about the data in the OP....
    ...I've explained that not of same is mine, and have indicated that it comes from a famous magazine.
    Not famous to you, but to those who are literate, who actually graduated from high school, or went even further.




    6. Now pay attention: this is important.
    'Mother Jones' is Leftist....way liberal.
    List of political magazines - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    a. "#3 Most Liberal - Mother Jones

    Mother Jones is an independent, nonprofit magazine focused on investigative journalism. On March 22, it tweeted, "Evangelist Franklin Graham: Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated Obama administration: http://bit.ly/heVun5."

    7. In conclusion....this is only fun when someone bites it big time...and, here you are, right on cue:

    "but who cares the Right always exaggerates,..."


    Did you get the joke????

    YOU!!!


    You're the joke....Mother Jones, '... the Right always exaggerates,...'



    I looked up 'ignorant' in the dictionary and found your picture.
