Unemployment rate poll
 
The unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in September. What’s your take on this?

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/multim...192849572.html

Bottom right of page.


Current numbers:

It assures President Obama's re-election (8604)
9%

It's proof the economy is improving (21280)
22%

It's temporary, the worst isn't over (11403)
12%


I don't trust the numbers (55030)
57%

It's likely indicative of people who were looking for work giving up, in combination with some of those people finding jobs.

Take a close look at what sector had the largest growth, and one of the largest surges in it's history.

It was



Government.

something fishy here?

Numbers cannot be real. Look at the labor participation rate...also the best #'s in 40 years...??? I don't think sooooo

It's indicative of ChicagO corruption.

maybe even flintlicker will be able to discern the falsehoods in this report, and then again maybe not

SPIN2010 10-05-2012 17:34

Why would this lie be any different than any other out of this administration? :dunno:

Nothing more than a monumental all out failed attempt at an October surprise.

Pink unicorns and marshmallow trees perpetrated by Barry's disciples.

Lou Dobbs was laughing at this earlier on Fox. Still an iconic executive, Welch is getting old.

BINGO, that is the problem with believing the 7.8% rate, despite the creation government jobs. I will say that the month of August usually has the largest revisions and sometimes we get odd numbers in September. The UE rate is still mostly a BS stat since it doesn't account for those who have given up on looking for a job. I think if you take the historical participation rate as a reference the UE is really more like 11%. Underemployment is also a big issue, that number has been awfully high as well .

Bull crap numbers............. democrat/liberal manipulating liars.... and the people that think obama should have been able to use his teloprompter during the debate believe this crap. This just indicates the level of coruption in "our" government. We the people need to clean our houses.... representatives and white.

The same group of ppl will be calculating it when Romney is president. Will you still be calling it a conspiracy then?

I don't understand why a lack of understanding motivates ppl to come up with conspiracy theories.
