:o over 10 percent unemployment?? :o http://www.gallup.com/poll/125639/Gallup-Daily-Workforce.aspxDid I miss this on the news?
Hmmmmm.....Why are you :o :oI think it is more like 17.5 % ....But then thats just my way of thinking.
The feds routinely "cook the books" on a lot of issues; unemployment is one of them.Gallup and Rasmussen, among others, routinely release their own surveys of the unemployed showing numbers considerably higher than the government's. More to the point, NOBODY EVER releases numbers lower than the government's.My guess is that the true overall unemployment rate is closer to 20%. In my field (highway construction) it's well over 30% in many parts of the country.Government numbers are almost always flawed, if for no other reason than that they're produced by politicians and their appointees. In the case of unemployment statistics, the government leaves out the underemployed (full-time workers forced into part-time work, workers forced to take significant pay cuts, etc.) and those who have simply left the job market once their unemployment comp benefits expired. (Some have also taken early retirement.)
Why????? do people feel that people have left the job market once their unemployment comp benefits expired. I know people who keep looking all the time.
As o b will become a unemployed worker will he get unemployment comp at the end of his 4 years? :-\ Along with the VP. ;D
Based on how poor a job he's done as a stand-in for a real President, the real question should be, will he deserve to even draw oxygen?
My fondest wish is that in January 2013, when Hussein's replacement is sworn in, the new President orders federal marshals to seize Obama and his White House team, and have these crooks in cages at Gitmo by sundown.
