You probably can add about 1-1/5% if not a tad more to that for the REAL total of unemployed.....

The way the government comes up with thier smoke & mirrors figures, its not accurate..........

I'm not surprised. Even my workplace seems to be doing tricky things to see if they can get people to leave.

I have to agree with this one. Even if unemployment is 6.5% that means 93.5% of the population has a job, which, in my mind makes the other 6.5% a bunch of lazy morons.

And i know the argument, you've probably heard it, too: "I was making $60,000 a year and can't find anything at that level." To those people: something beats nothing any day of the week. Even if it's at Burger King.

You have to be a complete moron to believe that. The country's economic decline happened on Bush's watch. We saw it start with oil going upwards of $5 a gallon. Obama just got into office and you're ready to blame him for it? Try again. Try 8 years of mismanaging a country. Blame Bush, he's the one who did it.

He could have saved us trillions. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...
