    Jobless rates drop in 34 states and DC - Economy at a Crossroads- msnbc.com

    Do these numbers include all those Census jobs Skull pilot was railing about?

    Cherry pick much?
    This is the weakest recovery in the post war period, despite having spent more on it than any other recovery. Maybe Keynesiasm really doesn't work?

    Regardless of how you SPIN this, it is a positive sign. Yes?

    Is it a positive sign that in order to get a lowering in the rate of joblessness we have had to spend ourselves into bankruptcy? Is that your question?

    Reagan's recovery was worse, took almost three years, and unemployment peaked at 10.8%. Maybe you should study economics, history, and leave off the demagoguery.

    No, Jake. Unsubstatiated is your middle name. It might even be your first name. You are the King of such statements.
    You are also King Fool of this board, pretending to be a Republican and all.
    All hail Jake, King Fool of USMB!

    Does this mean you are NOT going to substantiate your claim, Rabbi?
