    Herman Cain's new plan for exposing just how many accusers can be found, aside, at least one black guy appears to be certain to keep his job.

    And in the Great Tradition of the Venice Beach Chain-Saw Juggler, "Others Will Follow!"

    The Associated Press: Applications for unemployment aid drop to 390,000

    The lower unemployment rate going forward has even already been announced in the so many planned new hires data. Within months, the campaign of the Democrats will be discussing the Obama-Biden presidency, and even tie the Clinton Administration for the title of "First African-American Presidency In History!"

    The sweep of the Democrats, into legislatures and statehouses everywhere: Will actually, likely, be led by a former governor of liberal Massachusetts!

    It's normal that unemployment drops a bit at this time of year. Alot of retailers pick up seasonal help going into the holidays, and lay them off after New Years.

    Anyone reading the linked AP report saw as follows:

    "A separate report this week showed that employers advertised more jobs in September than at any other point in the past three years. That's a positive sign for future hiring, since most companies typically take one to three months to fill vacant positions."

    That will be in additional to seasonal, which last year led to full-time employment.

    Next year, retirement checks will increase, and Medicare Part B will even come down for millions: Even Bill Clinton, if had enough quarters to have qualified--Life-Time Public Housing residency is not a customary, MediCare qualifier.

    The numbers are seasonally-adjusted to compensate for that phenomena.

    Anyone notices that U. S. Politics is starting to look like a statistical tie: To billions, worldwide.

    And how does one "seasonally adjust" such a thing? If they were talking about this year's numbers versus last year's numbers, that might be more telling. But the article says that the numbers fell to 390,000 this past month. What kind of seasonal adjustment can be made to that?

    I wonder how many thousands of Floridians found seasonal jobs. But wait until May when they all get laid off for 6 months. Then the Northeast resort States will hire the same amount of jobs that Florida said bye till next winter.

    They look at the mean change over the past few decades in a certain month, use that as the baseline expected change and calculate the published jobs numbers as the deviance from that mean. It's a bit more complicated than that, but not by much.

    Anyone recalls that GOP said "No!" to the Obama-Biden Stimulus, and "No!" to the rescue of U. S. auto workers, and "No!" to "Cash for Clunkers," and came up with "Nein! Nein! Nein!" in Blackface, and then came up with "Oops!"

    The Reid Democrats came up with a jobs for Veterans bill in the Senate. The House has no effective leadership with Boehner and Cantor in charge.

    So it's back to "Change You Can Believe In" for 2012, only days away.

    The economy is picking up.

    Bad news for Republicans.
