    EMPLOYMENT RESULTS ARE AWFUL!

    Why is our lying pig media hyping the Employment results?

    They are giving Barack Obama a gold star for being present!

    Civilian labor force participation rate is stagnant at 63.6%. It hasn't been this low since 1980-1981.

    Employment-population ratio is stagnant at 58.6%. It hasn't been this low since 1983.

    Number of Unemployed increased from 12.2 million to 12.3 million. Lots of babble about how 150,000 jobs were created. At that rate it will take 84 months (7 years) to clear off 12.3 million unemployed (assuming the population doesn't grow!)

    Unemployment rate increased from 7.8% to 7.9%. Why is that marvelous?

    This is STILL the worst employment/unemployment record in the history of the Bureau of Labor Statistics since 1948! Working on Five Years of FAILURE!

    By the way, while I'm hearing about 150,000 new jobs, WHERE ARE THEY?
    Total Employment level for Jan-2013 is 143.322 million. For Dec-2012 it was 143.305 million. The difference is plus 17,000 jobs. Yippiee Ki Yah!

    What they're doing is comparing Sept-2012 (142.974 million) to Jan-2013 (143.322 million) and getting 338 thousand jobs and claiming that averages to 150 thousand jobs per month.
    Well, lets see: Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan = 4 (four!) months
    348 thousand / 4 = about 87 thousand jobs per month, not 150 thousand. (They are getting that number from some other report!)

    Next I will hear how its all Bush's fault! Or that things would be worse if it weren't for the Stimulus Package. (And dumbbuttuuuuuuu will tell me how Bush "almost" doubled the unemployment rate!)

    GIMMIEEE A BREAK!

      WHAT DOES IT MATTER?

      Companies are slashing jobs, reporting record earnings, stocks are ON FIRE!!. Some stocks are hitting 60 year highs.

      SUCK ON THAT!

      OBAMA RULES!!!

      GOP will be eliminated in 2014 and Obama will assume total control. DOW 16,000!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Don't worry about dumbbuttuuuu, Yahoo permanently suspended him for being a DA. If a post does get thru, it gets zapped in minutes, same with messy. They are germs, not welcome.

      • Dumbutuuuuuuu has been haunting this mesg board for at least a decade, under different yahoo ids. I am surprised yahoo permanently banned him. He has access to at least two computers with different IP addresses. I am sure of that.

        I thought messybrains & delucks345 were the same poster: old ID new ID. Sort of. Although delucks345 seems less pleasant. I am (almost) sure he is a paid political poster. I could be wrong about that. At one point I was sure he was posting anti-American stuff from Iraq. Maybe he was just a relay. Maybe now that Obama is supreme emperor, issuing executive proclamations, maybe Obama doesn't need to pay political hack posters anymore.

        Just guessing.

        Both of these guys have been around longer than I have been on this msg board. (And I've been here, with different yahoo IDs for maybe 8 years.) I've been off lately. Kind of too depressed to continue after the November elections.

        It's like, what's the point?

        Cry the Beloved Country!

        Sentiment: Hold

    • AWFUL!
