It's interesting where the unemployment rate started to rise because of Bushonomics, and also interesting to note that Obamanomics  raised it higher and kept it there.

Who will pay?

What you really mean is , please agree with me Craig. It embarrasses me when you take Don't side.

Go play Ruby, you've become nothing but a distraction.

It would be even better news I suppose if they adjusted the way they calculate unemployment even more so it showed that everybody is employed...

When you don't count 10 million people as unemployed because they stopped even trying to get a job, it's just government BS, not good news at all.

Ruby, Craig Sickler got it dead right this time. It's the socialist side of him coming out. Hoping you were able to understand it?

It would be nice if you understood Dong, but I don't think you are yet able to understand...

Has Red helped you with your learning disability/mental disorder?

True, Jeff, but this is the same way they have been measuring it, and it is showing progress, no doubt because of tax cuts and the easing of regulations.  Hilary would never have accomplished this, so I'm grateful that she lost the election.  Trump isn't the Libertarian president I would like, who would get rid of whole departments in government and pay off the national debt, but he isn't Hilary either.  We take our victories where we can get them.

No Ruby, they changed the method of measuring unemployment when Trump took over. Didn't you know that either? Ask Sickler.
