i guess it is time to drop this one again: Richard Vedder of the American Enterprise Institute: “If today the country had the same proportion of persons of working age employed as it did in 2000, the U.S. would have almost 14? million more people contributing to the economy.” Fourteen million is more than the combined work forces of 18 states.

As long as you can borrow, you can lie!

For you who may know Amity Shales, who studied the Great Depression, please ask her if we would be calling it "The Great Depression" today, if the Government had borrowed Six Trillion Dollars and provide welfare, earned income tax credits, food stamps, rent supplements, Medicaid, Head Start, free schooling K-12 with two or three free meals a day at school, Pell Grants and student loans at graduation, job training and unemployment checks for 99 weeks??

As long as you can borrow, you can lie!

14 million is roughly 1/10th of the total number of people employed today.

The idea that a person is no longer looking for work because his Unemployment Benefits are exhausted is illogical and unsupported by facts or evidence. It is just a statistic of convenience for the propaganda of the administration.

The real Unemployment number is 14%. That is what it would be if it was figured the way has been figured by all previous administrations. Of course, all previous administrations were able to get people back to work after 26 or 39 weeks of Unemployment, so I guess that's not a "fair" comparison.

Another way of saying that is: As long as you can print, you can lie!!

The American economic juggernaut keeps churning out good news folks. According to government economists 236,000 jobs were created in February, plus or minus a margin of error of 100,000 jobs.

Anyone wanna take the under here?

In other news, the BLS revised January jobs data down 38,000 jobs so that the net number of jobs created in the first month of the year was a negative 21,000 jobs.

That’s right; 21,000 fewer jobs in January than in December. 

No wonder consumer confidence is moving up. The government is lying every month about something, anything, and...
