There's no context for these numbers. They can't even be called statistics. I am getting fed up with Kate Hicks' repeated distorted posts. She's an editorm so that mean the problem is in Townhall's management. It makes Townhall suspect & untrustworthy.

Does that make the national numbers being posted untrustworthy as well?

What context are these numbers delivered, and why does the administration constantly have to go back and adjust the number upward weeks after the dismal report is released?

No, I think you need to take off your biased glasses and believe the truth, liberal strategy has done nothing to help us out of this recession, the worst recovery since the depression.

What gives the impression that I have a bias in that direction?
I have no faith in "liberal" strategy!
I put that word in quotes because those who claim to be so have nothing to do with liberty.

A commitment to truth and tight logic demands it of my own side as well as the opposition.

Then you won't find any acceptance here. The only thing most here are committed to is partisan hackery.

What the hell do you mean, "context"? It's right there for anyone to read. You get fed up all you want. And if you "want" something, go work for it. Demanding your fellow citizens pay for your desires will only cause them to eventually crush you like the rodent you are.

Re. Context:
What happened in states with newly elected democratic administrations?
Is it "new" or "republican" that is sugnificant?
What happened to states with continuing repub admin?
What about the legislatures? Usually it's the legislatures that hold the purse strings?

1.35% compared to average of .9% . a .45% difference. Is that statistically significant within a population of only 17 + 33 = 50 total? I don't know.

Look, these are numbers I would like to believe.
But wishing does not make it so.
Unwavering allegiance to the hard truth is and impeccable integrity will win the day.
Don't give the other side any wiggle room to make claims of weasel words.

oops, rodent. Not weasel. I was accused of being a rodent.

Not sure what gave the impression I want other people to pay my way.
I think we need a much smaller government and I don't want others, including unborn progeny paying me goodies.
We don't need to just slow down government growth, but reverse it.
Don't dig slower, fill in the hole. The hole is our grave.

Some awesome news: all 17 states that elected a Republican governor in 2010 has seen a reduction in their unemployment levels. In just over a year and a half since those new executives took office, these states have seen some serious improvement:

Kansas - 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8%

Maine - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Michigan - 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of 2.4%

New Mexico - 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of 1.0%

Oklahoma - 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of 1.4%
