    "Even though the official unemployment rate peaked in November 2009 and has declined slowly since then, the number adjusted for labor force participation rate hasn’t declined but instead floated in that range. We can see the marginally-attached rate decline with time, though the labor-force adjusted participation rate stays constant. That’s bad news."

    I brought this up on another thread, but it seems the left does not want to discuss it.

    Any on the left want to explain this.

    I am all ears.

    I am sure there is a good explanation.

    But, I'll listen to yours instead.

    The unemployment numbers from the government are from surveys. They have limited accuracy (like any poll does). It is highly doubtful they are good to within 100,000 people, so these kinds of estimates are well within the bounds of the government produced numbers. Whether it is 10.9% or 11.5% does not matter, because it definitely is NOT 8.6%!

    the unemployment is no longer a factor next year, its the fact that close to 55% of "Legal Americans" want Bozo to move out of the white house for all of the damage and depression he has caused for over 150 Million Americans!! and with the dozens of scandals that have been coming out of the woodwork, and all of the latest Democrats that have stolen or lost a few billion dollars!!! thanks alot Jon Corzine and Charlie Rangel,,,you make Obama and the rest of the Rats seem so honest!

    The real UE rate is 8.6%. The Fake 11.4% rate is based on the ridiculous assumption that no one, especially Boomers, retires from the work force, or dies, or goes back to school, or gets married, or moves out of the country, etc. The phony 11.4% rate assumes everyone leaves the workforce because they have given up looking for work out of frustration, a moronic but self-serving assumption for those who want the country to suffer for the political gain of their Party.
