The economy added 146,000 jobs, better than expected if still a status quo result, and the jobless rate declined to 7.7%. . . .
However, the seasonally-adjusted labor force dropped by 350,000, and the civilian labor force participation rate also dropped two-tenths of a point to 63.6%, almost at the 31-year low hit in August. . . .
In other words, America isn’t going back to work. Americans are still dropping out of the work force.
This statistical illusion — having the unemployment rate decline because the people stop looking for work — cannot be maintained infinitely. Economic reality is like gravity, and is impossible to avoid.
I see you are too partisan to understand the drop out number. More on welfare and less taxpayers for you to take from. I'd suggest you wake up but staying konked out on your dope is what is really best for you betty......
Their Saudi Masters aren't going to get that THIRD free war for Oil that's been on the Puke Agenda since Day One either!
(Why do you think they scream such absolute nonsense all over this message board since they got their Saudi-owned butts kicked on Election Day?)

(Reuters) - Saudi King Abdullah has repeatedly urged the United States to attack Iran's nuclear program and China directed cyberattacks on the United States, according to a vast cache of diplomatic cables released on Sunday in an embarrassing leak that undermines U.S. diplomacy.
The more than 250,000 documents, given to five media groups by the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, provide candid and at times critical views of foreign leaders as well as sensitive information on terrorism and nuclear proliferation filed by U.S. diplomats, according to The New York Times.
The White House condemned the release by WikiLeaks and said the disclosures may endanger U.S. informants abroad. WikiLeaks said its website was under attack and none of the underlying cables was visible there Sunday night, though some were posted by news organizations.
Among the revelations in Britain's Guardian newspaper, which also received an advance look at the documents along with France's Le Monde, Germany's Der Spiegel and Spain's El Pais, King Abdullah is reported to have "frequently exhorted the U.S. to attack Iran to put an end to its nuclear weapons program."
"Cut off the head of the snake," the Saudi ambassador to Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, quotes the king as saying during a meeting with General David Petraeus in April 2008.
