    If we use liberal terminology the headline should read

    Unemployment Skyrockets to 9.9%

    With more and more people and fewer and fewer jobs, we should be thankful unemployment is only 10%.

    The obvious solution is to get rid of some people.

    I do not live in the US now, but I do not want to live in a world where the US is not the land of opportunity, because if she is not, there probably will be little free opportunity for the rest of us.

    Come on now, you can pull out of this.

    Australia does quite well selling China a lot of expensive rocks, but I really would rather prefer any USS ship pulling into our harbors than a ship with a red flag and stars that do not shine, with a crew that has no idea of what it means to be a free human being.

    The free world needs you America.

    Umm the April figures came out 2 weeks ago and were discussed then. Why bring it up now?

    Employment and jobs also went up, and most of the new unemployed were people entering or re-entering the labor force.

    Actual unemployment for people who want full time jobs but can not find them is running about 22 to 24%

    All of those millions who have been dropped from the Labor Force numbers by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis are still out there wanting to work, but there is no work for them.

    Hilda says they are not actually in the work force. I say they are. We are in a Depression, but we are close to getting out. When we start creating millions of jobs in the Service Sector, THEN we will be in RECOVERY. Not until then.
