In that case 7.8% unemployment is artificially inflated in that it would be much lower had the size of the workforce remained unchanged.

Vedder wrote that "if the government provides food, then the imperative to work is severely reduced." In reality, food stamps have been repeatedly shown to stimulate growth. Moody's Analytics Chief Economist Mark Zandi told Congress in 2008 that food stamps were "the most effective way to prime the economy's pump." Zandi estimated every $1 spent on food stamp payments boosts gross domestic product by $1.73. Food stamp spending is also projected to fall significantly in the coming years, according to data compiled by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP).
Vedder then claimed that extended unemployment benefits amount to "pay[ing] people to stay at home," though multiple studies find that unemployment benefits are stimulative, providing needed demand in the economy when growth is slow. The Congressional Budget Office in January 2010 recommended extending unemployment benefits to stimulate the economy:

Problem with modern democracy is that the "anti-christ" will likely have to be elected and end-times Christians are too stupid to know they have to vote him into power to fulfill the prophecy.

Sticky problem that.

CNN Money - An often overlooked number calculated by the Labor Department shows millions of Americans want a job but haven't searched for one in at least a year. They've simply given up hope.

They're not counted as part of the labor force, the official unemployment rate, or the category the Labor Department refers to as "discouraged workers" -- those who haven't bothered to look for work in the last four weeks.

These hopelessly unemployed workers have just been jobless so long, they've fallen off the main government measures altogether.

Today, Obama said our "tasks" include gay marriage and equal pay which is already the law.

Didn't say anything about this.

Carol I realize you are way to fanatical and dense to grasp that your post is racist in nature. When you imply that Blacks aren't smart enough to know who or what to vote for.I'm afraid tis you that is perspective deprived. As a woman you seem oblivious of the way your party treats women, and all minorities..So you are the one lacking in the perspective catagory.
That post was nothing short of ridiculous.

Maybe you can start over and make a little more sense the next time.

This is new to you?

This number is represented by the BLS's U-6 figure which is going down faster than the official U-3 rate which is 7.8%.

U-6 is currently at around 14% down from its high of over 17%.

That's in every ECON101 class.
