You sound like a commie pinco liberal left wing baby killing dumokrap.
It ain't no depression...it was a rescession caused mostly by the telecom and dot com collapse which was caused by the fact that they were over built and needed a correction...then 9/11 which could have been prevented if your ass/hole buddy Bill Cliton (I did not have sex with that woman)had been minding the store instead of frigging every skirt he could get in the oval office. Would you trust that MF with your wife?
BLS stats below with their attempt to cover up the degree of unemployment.
Civilian labor force_____145,829,000 Employment__________137,430,000 Not in labor force______ 74,280,000 ftp://ftp.bls.gov/pub/news.release/empsit.txt
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 137 milion out of 291 million Americans are employed.
That means 154 Million Americans do not have jobs. Of course that does not discount those who are too young or too old to work. Of that 154 million, approximately 39 million are under 16, over 65 or disabled and thus can�t work.
Damn, that leaves 115 Million that are unemployed! Almost half the people who are capable of working and want to work CAN'T!
