It's impossible to quantify because who knows what town will need to increase what sectors in order to facilitate the needs of the workers coming through while the pipeline is being constructed in the given town. As for me steering you away from the lasting effect of the project, I wasn't. I know the only permanent jobs will be the added shipping jobs in the gulf at the refineries and the shipping industry that carries the final product. Forbes magazine says: "Projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline will in fact create jobs (an unknown number), facilitate long term economic development, enhance state revenues, and bring the United States closer to energy security." Now you are pointing fingers at me about permanent jobs when your leader has spouted off about 8.5 million jobs created under his presidency yet there are less people working today than ever before. How is that possible? Maybe the jobs he is bragging about were temporary though he touts them as permanent? Surly you didn't believe that the 8.5 million jobs (if there were even that many) are still around?

How many people are employed in the U S A today ?

Did you notice that the larges drop in the bottom 80% which is almost 4% happened under Barack Obama? How did that happen under the champion of the middle and lower class? The upper 1% also grew under Obama. It looks to me as though your table proves that a minimum wage is oppressive and greatly reduces the opportunity for a country to grow.
How did that happen, since you ask I will tell you, and you keep the blame it on Bush, BS, to yourself.

In Jan., 2008, the USA began to loose jobs and continued to loose jobs till Jan., 2010 .

We have had minimum wage laws since 1938, seems unlikely to me and "oppressive" law that greatly reduced the opportunity for a country to grow would still be in existence 76 years later.

One thing I noticed in your statistics is who was president for 2 of those three years? Now you keep the blame it on Bush stuff to yourself. As for things that don't do any good but are still around, the Great Society is a great example of a failed experiment that still burdens us today more than ever. The great society was meant to help the poor (mainly blacks) and 49 years later we are worse off than we were then.

*60 percent of black children grow up in fatherless homes.

*800,000 black men are in jail or prison.

*70 percent of black babies are born to unwed mothers.

*Over 300,000 black babies are aborted annually.

*50 percent of new AIDS cases are in the black community.

*Almost half of young black men in America's cities are neither working nor in school. What we have here is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode.

These statistics are in our face yet we are spending more in welfare programs than ever before. Why is that? One would think that with the opposite of what was intended happening, we would move to something else, yet here we are throwing money into a bottomless pit. The same goes for the minimum wage and you know it.

You are correct. I owe you a huge apology. Thanks for giving me one chance to correct my lie. It was in January 2010 that the real unemployment rate hit 18% under Obama's watch though he has improved that number to 13.50%(still higher than any other time in history). Please forgive me. I am SO glad that I have someone like you to draw the real truth out of me like the REAL unemployment rate.

What three years you talking about?

"Jan., 2008, till Jan., 2010 " sure seems like TWO years to me.

The Answer is.......... Bush 1, President Obama 1.

The harshest of critics do not hold a new president accountable for job numbers during his first year in office, because the new presidents policies have not had time to take effect.

The numbers and comment you have plagiarized from the, KKK Weekly Journal editorial are as bogus as your other bull shit lies you try to pull off.

That is what I know!

You do not "owe" me any thing.

I have drawn plenty out of you but it does not come any where close to the truth.

BTW- what you just posted above, just some more of what does not resemble truth, I do think it would be safe to say, more of your bull-shit .

Reagan's highest UE # 10.8%

Obama's highest UE # 10.0%

The civilian labor force was 62 million in 1950, the lowest ever .

Either way, YOU LIED AGAIN!

REAL unemployment? I don't think so. If you're 16 or over, then you're qualified to work. If your in that age range and your not working then your unemployed. Every president uses the current UE system we have but it's wrong and it doesn't change reality. I would have gladly carried the real UE back to Reagan but it only goes back to 1994. I know you liberals have trouble with reality because it so starkly contrasts with the world you live in but you'll just have to deal with it. You could step into the light but I'm not sure you could handle it so keep your head buried in the sand.

Speaking of Reagan vs. Obama, this is a very good contrast between the two. We know the run of prosperity we had after Reagan and only time will tell what will happen after Obama. I suspect Obama will be someone's Jimmy Carter.

Would that be the same run of prosperity that got Bush 41's Ass kicked out of office after four years.

Nope, I can't do that.

You cannot comprehend a explanation when it is given to you.

Just as you don' t comprehend there is no need for a "liberal sources" to "dispute"
those numbers because they belong to G W. Bush and the great recession that began under his watch.

My goodness, mr. Barney got ur feathers ruffled? I think I can pert near see that liberal scowl that's famous when things just ain't going your way. You sound like you got your teeth clenched and little beads of sweat on your brow.
Don't get yourself so riled up, mr. Barney. You're really just trying to convince yourself. We already know the truth about unemployment.

The harshest of critics do indeed hold a new president accountable for whatever they find to criticize.
Case in point... 9/11 attacks. After 8 years of Clinton's lethargic approach to terrorism, somehow Bush became responsible for the atrocities of that horrible day.

Bogus then, and bogus now.

But you, blowing crap out of your ass as usual, blame Bush for events before he took office, during his term, and now-6 years AFTER he's been out of office, and think anybody listens to you??
Just a bunch of mindless, blaming drivel-the only requirements needed to be a blow hard liberal.

We give them a break the first couple of years but blame bush for the economic decline that began in the Clinton years and 911 that was being planned during the Clinton era? Maybe we just make excess for whomever we like.

The faithful leader Reality Check gets his ears pin backed for lying again and out pops his army of straw people.

Yes I agree, new presidents do get held accountable for many things, but I assure you the unemployment numbers for his first year in office is not one of them, as I said the first time.

Now let me give you a case and point:

Both presidents inherited and economy after a brutal recessions, they both saw the unemployment rate hit 10% because of it.

Here is what happen to Reagan-

Republican Party ended up losing 26 House seats in the 1982 midterm elections (increasing the Democrats' majority). Yet only two years later, after the economy had regained its footing.

President Obama got the Tea Party in mid terms..........
and here we are.

No, the one that ended in 2008 during the last year of Bush's presidency and has gotten worse than anyone ever imagined under Obama who had a chance to fix it though he never planned to fix anything. His policies clearly show this.
