    $20 Trillion Debt. That's the horrific debacle Trump inherited from your boy Hussein. So get real, kid.

    Please take note of what is being compared in your little example.

    The Reduction in Unemployment vs The Reduction in unemployment RATE!

    Do you realize that they are two separate things? The rate is the change from the base. The Unemployed is an actual head count.

    A careful reading of the rest of what you posted shows similar misdirecting of information for the purpose of promoting an ideology over truth.

    Your little factless diatribe also ignores the massive amounts of stimulus that went to crony's as payback for political favors.

    Now, Trump is in no way responsible for a reduction of anything just yet as he hasn't been responsible for any budget and very little in the way of spending (almost all of which has been predetermined by the previous administration).

    I'm not even sure I believe there has been a reduction in the debt. The debt clock, as far as I know, hasn't once in the past 40 years, gone backward. It currently is climbing from 19.9 Trillion.

    Where did Drudge get these numbers?

    The debt clock is currently at 19.941 trillion dollars as of this timestamp.

    Pretty much assuming, aren't you?
    I didn't vote for Obama, ever.
    The last major party candidate I ever voted for was George W in 2000. Since that time, based on the poor quality of presidential candidates that both parties have given us, I have voted third party. I am also (and I have posted about this often), I have become anti-GOP/Dem parties. They are both non-productive, seem to love polarization and neither represent Main Street America.
    So, fuck off. You are truly an easily to manipulate goose-stepper. Thus, your ignorance.

    Look, I'm gonna cut you a huge solid....

    It's quite clear that you picture yourself some kind of Arbiter of Reason, or American Centrist. Allow me to disabuse you of that conceit.

    You are an imbecile.....

    The Reduction in Unemployment vs The Reduction in unemployment RATE!

    The Unemployed is an actual head count.
    Let me first point out that you are bitching about the words of my source - an economist - describing in a mass media forum the result of a specific poll (to which he links).

    The "substance" of your complaint is that "Unemployment" is a nominal concept, while "Unemployment Rate" is relative. This kind of thing might earn you a pat on your flat head in grade school, but in the REAL WORLD, EVERYONE knows that BLS doesn't track "Nominal Unemployed" in a discreet fashion. (I could go into great detail about why they are likely to refrain from doing so, but you aren't equipped to understand.)

    When denizens of the REAL WORLD talk about "Unemployment" in any MEASURABLE fashion, they are, in fact, referring to the Unemployment Rate....

    But that this was the limit of the idiocy you managed to cram into one post.....

    A careful reading of the rest of what you posted shows similar misdirecting of information for the purpose of promoting an ideology over truth.
    Even granting the false distinction you labor, how does this "misdirect"?

    BLS DOES track Nominal EMployment......now, disregarding (for the nonce) new entrants into the labor force, what MUST happen to Nominal Unemployment if Nominal Employment rises?

    Further, if you believe that the signal from U3 diverged from the signal of the non-existent Nominal Unemployment number, can you cite, oh.....let's pick private economists like IHS Global Insight, Macroeconomic Advisers, and Moody's Analytics......add the non-partisan CBO, on the subject of the effect of Stimulus on Employment (given that we know it is the Complement of Unemployment)?

    I understand that it has been rough so far, but I'm not quite done yet...but first, as an aside

    Your little factless diatribe also ignores the massive amounts of stimulus that went to crony's as payback for political favors.
    Do you understand what a fact is? How about a citation?

    Now let me show you "factless".....

    ignores the massive amounts of stimulus that went to crony's as payback for political favors.
    I ignore it with good reason.....It's reich wing media bullshit....only an idiot would buy it....

    wait.....this is awkward....


    Maybe not..

    I'm not even sure I believe there has been a reduction in the debt. The debt clock, as far as I know, hasn't once in the past 40 years, gone backward.
    I'll skip all the stuff in this that screams "Irredeemable Moron" in favor of informing you that

    a) You can get monthly treasury reports which allow you to find any month's contribution to the debt

    b) had you clicked on the link provided, you would see that it offers a DAILY debt calculation

    c) only to a credulous douche is this even newsworthy.
