Horseshlit, the number you're referring to is the U-6 which hasn't changed since the last revision to the "U" levels in 1994. Though not as widely reported as the U-3 number you're more familiar with it is reported and available on the bls.gov website. Right now U-6 is at about 14%, down from a high of 17%.

I'm not even remotely surprised an Obama ade guzzler like you is in denial and willing to lie to help the failure Obama. I'll stick by these and other sources.

I found this an eye opener, sadly so many of Obama's LIV's are functional illiterates. Or happily on welfare already.
This “official unemployment rate” has been manipulated throughout the years. The current version does not include discouraged workers (those who stop looking for work, or no longer can qualify for unemployment benefits) and the underemployed (those who take part-time jobs just to get by).
Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, R-Calif., stated in The Washington Times,“The official unemployment rate treats this subset of Americans, totaling as many as 88 million people, as if they just vanished ... call it what it is, an accounting gimmick.”
So What Is the Real Number That Obama Would Prefer You Don’t See?
The real unemployment rate is an eye-opening 22.3%, according to John Williams with Shadow Government Statistics ... nearly triple the “official unemployment rate.”
But as alarming as this number is, certain experts — like Dick Morris, John Bolton, Lou Dobbs, Newt Gingrich, and Larry Kudlow — believe our economic situation could get much, MUCH worse.

If you are using the term "ghetto" because of the percentage of Jews in Boca Raton, then you are an anti Semite, but we know that.
I'm not Jewish, but you are an offensive, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynist pig. Like most in your party; that's why you lost and that's why you'll be long dead before another republican gets near the White House.

Don't point to the stock market??
You're really a nitwit to say such a thing.
----------
"History has shown that the price of shares and other assets is an important part of the dynamics of economic activity, and can influence or be an indicator of social mood. An economy where the stock market is on the rise is considered to be an up-and-coming economy. In fact, the stock market is often considered the primary indicator of a country's economic strength and development."
----------
The 'capitalism' that the stock market represents has doubled since 2009, most indices are hitting new 5 year highs.
Markets only rise when forward economic activity is favorable. DUH
The increases are fueled by the profitability of America's Corporations, and a reflection of the greater economy.
But you wouldn't know any of that.
You're as ignorant as your sockpuppet, Dweeb.
I'm getting tired of correcting your blatant attacks on our President.
Bush destroyed the economy.
Obama is fixing it. If not for the TP takeover of the House in 2011, the economy would be faring better.
Republiclowns cost us our Triple A credit rating, and have done their best to thwart Obama.
And they lost in the process, as the economy continues to improve.
You're a hateful idiot, you only come here to badmouth our President.
Too bad you're too stupid to score any points.
"Don't point to the stock market" marks you as the biggest jerk ever!!

I'm getting tired of correcting your history.
Here's the actual events:

1999 Clinton coerces Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into instituting nation-wide the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.

2003 Democrats support the war in Iraq in exchange from the Republicans no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime housing loan program.

prior to 2009 the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse give so much in bribes to Obama, it is only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress who gets more from them.

2008 The financial institutions that gave a mountain in bribes to Dodd and Obama collapse the economy after two years of oversight by Christopher Dodd chairmand of the Senate Banking Committee and Barney Frank chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

Don't make me correct your history again....

Now, back to the questions you run away from faster than that male page Barney Frank threw off his New York hotel balcony wished he would have run:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Give us an answer to these questions, dupe.

As usual a rightie that doesn't have a clue about what serving is all about. Sure most women don't have the upper body strength, but they more than make up for it with brains, the will to carry out their assigned mission and the courage along with their proven ability to withstand far more pain than wimps like you. But then again what's one more rightie condemning women...And when they get reminded just like racism...They always respond with ..WHO ME. Why I never...Clowns the lot of you.
I did serve, unlike your cowardly ass, that's why I know girls can't cut it in actual combat, you're an idiot and likely a draft dodger or a traitorous scunbag like John Kerry.

The only reason there's even women in the military now is that standards were lowered.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) argued Thursday that while there is a right to bear arms, there is no constitutional right to own assault weapons used to kill large numbers of people.
"We know that there is no inalienable right to own and operate 100-round clips on AR-15 assault rifles," Schumer said at a news conference to introduce legislation to ban assault weapons. "That's certainly within the framework of the Heller decision where hopefully both sides can meet in the middle on that basis. Hundred-round clips aren't used for hunting. They aren't used for self-defense. They are used to maximize the amount of damage one can do in a short amount of time."

handguns are not “dangerous and unusual weapons.”, so in saying so they now need to define “dangerous and unusual weapons.”
jumping precedent always comes back to bite them in the ass.
The Constitution defines our government as a civillian government.

Show us the text in the Constitution where two sets of rights are defined: one set of rights for the civillians in government; and a different set of rights for the civillians not in government.

Show it to us or STFU.

For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers successfully separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of MAJORITY RULE and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the central and state governments.
http://www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_ite...
----------
In the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton railed against requiring what we now call super majorities, calling that corruption of majority rule "a poison."
Giving the minority a way to negate the vote of the majority, Hamilton wrote, in No. 22:
"...is, in its tendency, to subject the sense of the greater number to that of the lesser number...The necessity of unanimity in public bodies, or of something approaching towards it, has been founded upon the supposition that it would contribute to security. But its real operation is to embarrass the administration, to destroy the energy of the government, and to substitute the pleasure, caprice, or artifices of an insignificant, turbulent, or corrupt junto to the regular deliberations and decisions of a respectable majority."
----------
James Madison, in the Federalist Papers, No. 58, adds:
"In all cases where justice or the general good might require new laws to be passed, or active measures to be pursued, the fundamental principle of free government would be reversed. It would be no longer the majority that would rule: the power would be transferred to the minority...[In] particular cases, an interested minority might take advantage of it to screen themselves from equitable sacrifices to the general [welfare], or, in particular emergencies, to extort unreasonable indulgences."
----------
Not surprising, but the Constitution and the guys who wrote disagree with your stupidity.
The House has more R's than D's. Who's the majority?? Why is John Boehner called the "Majority Leader", who is in charge of the House.??
The Senate has more D's than R's. Who's the majority? Why is harry Reid called the 'Majority Leader", who is in charge of the Senate??
The "Majority Leader" is so important that nothing is done without the Leader's consent. No bills, no votes, etc.
Now, to complete your lobotomy, please point to anything in Government where the minority sets the rules.
You can't, so again you lose!!
At least you're not ashamed to come here and make a fool of yourself!!
That's something to be said for ignorance!!

Without doubt Galt has some serious psychological problems, he attempts to cover up his indiscretions and major short comings by implying that all that don't agree with his fanaticism live in tenent houses or the barrio as he puts it. It's a poor mans way of feeling better about his uselessness and under achieving life. By trying to bring others down to his level...Kinda sad

"" Women have taken part in Israel’s military before and since the founding of the state in 1948, with women currently comprising 33% of all IDF soldiers and 51% of its officers, fulfilling various roles within the Ground, Navy and Air Forces. The 2000 Equality amendment to the Military Service law states that "The right of women to serve in any role in the IDF is equal to the right of men." As of now, 88% to 92%[7] of all roles in the IDF are open to female candidates, while women can be found in 69% of all positions."
"""women can be found in 69% of all positions."""
Those statistics prove you to be a woman hating nitwit.
Thanks for exposing your prejudices.

You're an imbecile, after the Israeli's experience in the Sinai in 1973 they changed their military, it was a failure to expect the women to do what only men can.
