    UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE WEEKLY CLAIMS REPORT

    UNADJUSTED DATA FOR THE PAST WEEK

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 521,834 in the week ending Dec. 25, an increase of 24,879 from the previous week. There were 556,517 initial claims in the comparable week in 2009. THE GOVERNMENT, AS USUAL IS LYING LIKE SHEET. Half a million new claims each week, week after week after week after week.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


    HALF A MILLION! HALF A MILLION! HALF A MILLION ONWARD.
    INTO THE VALLEY OF DEATH RODE THE UNWARRIED.

    TWAS NOT TO WONDER WHY, BUT TO DO OR DIE.
    Was there a man dismay'd?
    Not tho' the workers knew
    Someone had blunder'd:
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to work or die:
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the Unwarried.

    I love how Neubarth claims the government is lying by comparing to numbers that he gets from the very same report he claims is lying. I've tried explaining seasonal adjustment to him, I've shown him the graphs that show why seasonal adjustment is used, but he just doesn't get it.

    Unemployment Benefits Don’t Impact Job Search
    March 21, 2011 — Even as job numbers – and the economy as a whole - have started to improve in recent months, there is little doubt that the country is still in the midst of an unemployment crisis. Nearly 14 million people are unemployed, 6 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer, and many others have given up looking for jobs all together, which means they are no longer counted in the data.
