    This part says it all, "While that's the lowest unemployment rate since December 2008, it fell due mainly to workers dropping out of the labor force."

    The official Unemployment rate is down, however, labor force participation rate is at 63.6%, which translates to an adjusted unemployment rate of about 11%. Something to be proud about? How many have fallen through the cracks? So I guess if joblessness and underemployment is worth a chest bump than were moving forward, HAHAHA! what a fool!

    I guess November 6th still stings, huh? Yes, we are still struggling to climb out of the Economic Purgatory that W left for the country. You all make a great point. Now, back to your fetal positions...

    So if I am correct, what you are really saying is that the tax cut in 2001 caused the financial meltdown of the worlds economy, furthermore, that the invasion of IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN further destroyed the worlds economy? Very interesting analysis of the issue, however, demonstrates your lack of comprehension of monetary markets, finance, economics, trade, and bubble economics. I guess the next thing you will say is Bush controlled the EU and single handedly manipulated the sovereign debt bubble? Interesting:confused:

    not happy about liberal socialism destroying yet another country, but happy at the possibility of socialism teaching Americans that Barry must go.
