    And people thought Colin Powell was a republican. I really don't care what party a person says they belong too. If what they say doesn't add up too reality, what they say is total bullshit.

    No one said they are lying... They are being dishonest. When the UE number goes down due to people falling off the ass end for months and months and months because of the way you count UE, that's a dishonest, it misrepresents the reality that we actually live under. People, the number who are UE’ed is more around 14-18% and going up.

    That's not why unemployment went down, and yes, Republicans here are saying that the numbers are rigged.

    This didn't dawn on me until I read it, but it is certainly obvious and ironic to anyone who followed GE under Jack Welch.

    Look, there are a lot of people who work at the BLS. One person could not all all of those households. One person could not call all of those businesses. The people who collect the data do not have to be dishonest. It's the person responsible for reporting the data, for pulling it together and making the determination what the number is.

    Obama's cabinet member. The secretary of Labor.

    The OP is quite naive if he believes what he posted.
