Yeah, I guess I don't get the joy. Then again I understand the impact that a >$20Trillion debt by 2016, coupled with rising interest rates will have on the American workingclass. I'd guess, by your reaction, you don't.

I wanted to see employment numbers not percentages.

Percentages are the most misleading math application you can use in a debate.

For instance if I increase sales tax from 9 per cent to 10 percent some ignorant person will tell you it's only a one percent increase when it really is like a 10 percent increase in the tax you are going to pay.

I'd like to see the total employed now as opped to Jan 21st 2009. Jan 21st 2010, and so on and so forth.

Not in the case of a dynamic denominator. The labor force participation rate is the labor force as a percent of the correspondent civilian noninstitutional population. Posting number of total employed in 2010 vs 1990, 1970, 1950, etc. would create appearance of inflated results.

Anyway, denominator for workforce participation is US noninstitutional population over the age of 16 or ~ 80% of the total US population.
1990 US pop was ~248M
2010 US pop was ~310M

My only concern with people like TnMAU is this:

How did they get to be so damn stupid, yet so proud of it, and more importantly, how are there so many of them?

Percentages are useless because I'm looking for real numbers.

Are more people working righ tnow than four years ago?

Can anyone answer that question?

BTW, if it's the same that's a pitiful number, but I think it's less.

Look it up on the BLS site. It's not difficult

People like Tigah in the Atl and Rex are harming the future generations in every possible way by refusing to acknowledge that a massive welfare state exists in this country.

I've always acknowledged that there are too many people unwilling to work who are drawing welfare and SS disability.

They are the problem, because they vote for the same people that the leeches vote for.

A worse problem would have been voting for the military-industrial plutocracy this country is becoming.
