Hi-Ya Da-Vey ... you stupid fck.
Try directing your stupid statement at the unions like the PSEA that look out only for themselves through mounting greed heaped upon greed. They are the same people who keep the word mediocrity on the forefront of American education by protecting the inept "teachers" and making sure politics is the standard for employment.
Hey, Da-Vey, I don't use public swimming pools, public telephones, or public schools ... they're too public.

The union only guarantees a union member a fair hearing.

I impression of public transportation cleanliness just went up a notch.

First-time claims for state unemployment benefits fell unexpectedly in the latest week, the Labor Department reported Thursday. The number of initial claims in the week ending Aug. 4 fell 6,000 to 361,000. The consensus forecast of Wall Street economists was for claims to rise 5,000 to 370,000.

Initial unemployment claims going back to the beginning of 2007.

The distractions from the left like this are not the issue.

Stop trying to put words in my mouth.
The rate of unemployment hasn't dropped down below 8%at any time under the Obama administration.(Something the stimulus bill was supposed to accomplish)
My post wasn't about what I know or don't know about Romney. It was what I do know about Obama.
You have no clue what do or don't know about Romney so therefore aren't entitled to comment about that.
Nothing you said disqualifies anything I said about the Obama campaign in my original post. Obama HAS to attack Romney, because he certainly cannot go to the American people and say look at all of the great things I did while in office.
You really don't know we lost 750,000 jobs in January pf 2009?

No wonder your posts are so lame.

Evidently do also don't know squat about Obama.

Take a break from topix & get better informed. You are embarrassing yourself.

No, I don't Davey.

I just understand how the REAL world works sometimes, AND I am NOT consumed by VILE greed and/or WRETCHED envy of what OTHERS have worked and EARNED.

Did you ever at least TRY and divide the ONLY required tax return to be shown, by ten yet?

Pull the log of stupid ignorance out of your eyeballs, and try it.

You might actually learn something worth knowing.

This is why BLS numbers are seasonally adjusted. So dumbasses like Gramps don't run screaming through the streets because of naturally occurring job fluctuations.
Seasonal adjustments seem more severe these days. Must be that Global Warming effecting them.

Same two month periods, June and July, during Bush years, 2001 thru 2008, also seasonally adjusted:

Average Labor Force:+216,000
Average Employment:+140,000
Average No longer in labor force:+12,000

Obama numbers for June and July, better known as the "Recovery Summer" periods, for years 2009-2012:

Average Labor force:-262,000
Average Employment:-360,000
Average No longer in labor force:+866,000

Note, if you kick enough people out of the labor force each month you can manipulate the unemployment rate lower.

During the Bush years the civilian labor force grew an average of 122,510 per month. During the Obama years it only grew an average of 31,634 per month. There are 3,725,916 USA workers missing! Alien abductions?

In the mid 14th century when the bubonic plague was approaching Europe the people locked their doors and stayed hidden in their homes. 70% of GDP was driven by consumer purchasing. Many merchants were forced to layoff their workers amd close their businesses due to poor sales. GDP shrank 8.9% in the three months before the "Black Death" arrived.
Little early to be hittin' the hash pipe idn't it Grampy?

Oh well, guess retirement will do that to some folks.

none of you Obamabots would have minded when the NY Daily News was endorsing Obama in 2008. by early 2008, the editors changed their minds when they saw what real rot was.

Did you see the latest Obama ad that reaches a whole new low?
Romney is being accused for the death of someone's wife because one of Bain's investment businesses closed down and she lost her health insurance.
Of course, the woman died 5 years after the company closed down and had been working another job for those 5 years with health insurance coverage and died after battling cancer.
Even the liberal media badgered Gibbs about this grossly false and misleading ad.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-574890...
That's not an Obama ad Carol it was produced and is being paid for by a PAC called Priorities USA. You will be seeing more of that sort of ugliness from PAC's on both sides of politics.
