    Real unemployment is 7.3%.

    Shadow Bullshit Statistics has no credibility. The number of discouraged workers went DOWN last month, contrary to Paul's bullshit.

    Bullshit from your link:

    Not all of the unemployed are counted in the BLS unemployment numbers. This is no secret. In 1994 government statisticians came up with the term “discouraged worker” to remove entire swaths of people from the unemployment statistic. Now all the government has to do to improve the unemployment numbers is discourage people from looking for a job.

    Why don't you spew your partisan bullshit to the people who have exhausted their unemployment benefits, and are still out of work?

    Why don't you spew your partisan bullshit to the people who have completely given up looking for work, and have no hope of finding a decent job?

    Why don't you spew your partisan bullshit to the people who are only working part-time because they can't find a full-time job?

    Why don't you spew your partisan bullshit to the people with college degrees who are working at fast food restaurants and other menial jobs, because it's the only work they can find?

    Why don't you spew your partisan bullshit to the people who are self-employed and who can't make enough money to survive?

    NONE of the people mentioned above are calculated into the current "unemployment" formula that the Bureau Of Labor Statistics uses.

    The only "shadow bullshit statistics" I see are the statistics provided by the BLA.

    The 7.3% does not come from the BLA[sic] BLS has unemployment at 7.8%.

    Total bullshit.

    There are so many people not reporting their income, real unemployment might be 3%.

    The only people sleeping on the street are people waiting to buy an iphone that is identical to the iphone they already have.
