    Once Upon A Time, Senator John McCain's favorite parrot(?) was explaining just how "strong" the United States economy really was! That was about September, 2008. Since then, Bureau of Labor Statistics seems inclined to report that 8.788 mil. payroll checks have some how disappeared--or some such thing.

    The loss of 263,000 such checks, in September, 2009, is about 2.99 percent, and counting, of the total.

    Something seems to have happened in-between. If the economy is a strong as the Republicans seem to believe in, then the lost checks should have totaled far more than the average of 676,000: In those 13 months.

    The Republicans, apparently, could have increased that to 1.0 mil. lost paychecks per month and more! After all, it's only money!

    How can the OP be considered a troll of his own thread, which is data-supported?

    Actually, there podner, it is lost self esteem for men who are trying to support their families. In the traditional sense, when a man can not provide for his wife and children, he sees himself as a failure.

    Some men would sooner be guilty of crime rather than not put food on the table. In many parts of the country during several depressions in the past, bank robbers became men of legend, not because they were perceived as good or noble, but because they would rather be a thief than a weak man who survives on handouts.

    Knowing that, you can expect crime to seriously escalate as this Depression gets worse and worse.

    But data reports just seem to bounce off of some people! Surely that restores a sense of manhood to the womanhoods(?): Now employed, or not!

    (Little Kids know about the reports, who are between the ages of 16 and 19! According to the West Wing, however, it's about their parents. . . .at least their dads!)
