Game-changer Jobs Report?

The employment / population ratio was at 65.7 when The Great Recession supposedly ended in June '09 (now at 62.8). The reason it, and the participation rate have dropped like a rock since then is basic math and the result of the Keynesian economics of the Obama Administrations: the population of able-bodied Americans has grown by 12.7 million people since Obama took office (the population of Ohio is 11.5 million), but the number of able-bodied Americans that are employed is 978,000 fewer than in November, 2007. How is 806,000 able-bodied Americans leaving the labor force not a factor in a lower unemployment number??

No mention of the 806 thousand able-bodied Americans that dropped out of the labor force in April?! How were 288 thousand jobs created during a quarter that saw a miniscule GDP growth of .1%, 3 weeks of increased unemployment claims, and the number of Americans employed drop by 73 thousand in April? The reality check here is that the population of able-bodied Americans has grown by 12.7 million people since Obama took office (the population of Ohio is 11.5 million), but the number of able-bodied Americans that are employed is 978,000 fewer than in November, 2007. Most of the population growth ("population bomb") has been jettisoned into the Not In Labor Force column of the bls.gov table A-1 including the 806 thousand this month alone!
Great report.! You touched on what can be considered the "population bomb" of the jobs report; it is where the sobering reality of the jobs crisis is. The population of able-bodied Americans has grown by 12.7 million people since Obama took office. To put that in perspective, the population of Ohio is 11.5 million. At the same time, if we compare the number of able-bodied Americans that are employed today to the number of able-bodied Americans employed in November 2007, there are 978,000 fewer. Most of the population growth has been jettisoned into the Not In Labor Force column of the BLS table A-1.

The uprisings in Cairo and elsewhere were sparked by the Democratic National Convention (“Binladen is dead and GM is alive”, 21 times) not by a Youtube video. Remember, the protesters in Cairo were reported in newspapers on September 12, 2012 proclaiming: “we are all Osama, Obama”
James Lovelock got “global warming” started when he discovered CFC‘s in the atmosphere and predicted that “Civilization in its present form hasn't got long.” Two years ago he confessed that he and others were “alarmist”, that “we extrapolated too far“ and “we were supposed to be half way toward a frying world”. Now, the “GAIA guy” has gone back on the GW reservation with his new book: A Rough Ride For The Future. The advertisement for it states: “…by our domination and our invention, we are now changing the atmosphere again. There is little that can be done about this, but instead of feeling guilty about it we should recognize what is happening, prepare for change, and ensure that we survive as a species so we can contribute to - perhaps even guide - the next evolution of Gaia.”

Sedition is a tradition in America. A non-violent resistance has been building, and as more Americans have their lives personally affected by Obamacare, long-term unemployment, and economic stagnation the numbers will swell to force a return to Constitutional principles, free markets, and supply-side economics.
The real employment situation for Obama's America can be shown by comparing the November jobs report to the jobs report from June '09 (when the "Great Recession" supposedly ended). Obama’s labor department has been able to manipulate the unemployment rate by successfully defusing the “population bomb” in the jobs report. The population of able-bodied Americans has grown by 10.9 million * since “The Great Recession” supposedly ended in June ‘09, but the labor force has only grown by 368,000 ** (bls.gov table A). The deception in the unemployment rate is accomplished by a jettison of Americans to a Not In Labor Force status (10 ½ million since “The Great Recession” supposedly ended) *** to offset the population growth. The workers that are no longer in the labor force aren’t counted when the unemployment rate is calculated. These numbers come from bls.gov Table A for June '09 & November '13: *Civilian Labor Force: 154.9 million able-bodied Americans in June '09 - 155.3 million in November ‘13 = 368,000 Americans **Civilian population: 246.6 million in November '13 - 235.7 million in June '09 = 10.9million more people in the labor force. *** Not in labor force: November '13: 91.3 million - 80.8 in June '09 = 10.5 Americans.
