TOPIC: Unemployment 7 point 8 percent - And Other Metrics
Created by: TheGhost_and_MrsMuir
Original Starting post for this thread:
So you think these numbers are cooked? Some of the metrics say otherwise. It's not just the rate that seems impressive, some of the deeper metrics speak volumes for real recovery in progress:

Rate - 7.8% (lower than when Obama took office) Average out of weeks out of work - 34.5 ( a pre recession figure) Mortgage foreclosures at a 4 year low Housing starts at a 4 year high 31 straight months of private sector job gains - over 5 million jobs manufacturing alone added over 500,000 jobs added Stock market at 5 year high

It would be awfully difficult to cook ALL of these books...

I'd say Obama understands the economy pretty good.

Whenever dwellers of planet ocean & earth question the reason and purpose of atmospheric distrubance, the first call for help is answered by Sea Goddess Calypso.

In brief, Calypso declares, "Planet ocean and earth is your home. Why blame the Eternal Source of Creation of the Seven Universes for your own desecration of your home? Your flush toilet is backed-up, and your own poop is the cause!"

"Sandy was a diabolical democratic scheme to postpone the election. "

Has an election ever been postponed before? Is there a precedent? Is there even a mechanism?

Oliver Stone said it was punishment for climate change silence...

At least that is the Huff Post headline. Haven't read the article yet...

"Sandy was a diabolical democratic scheme to postpone the election."

I thought I read some preacher say that Sandy was caused by "homos."

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hurricane Sandy could complicate Friday's release of the October U.S. jobs report, the final snapshot of employment before the presidential election.

Labor Department officials are still hopeful that they can release the report as scheduled at 8:30 a.m. Friday. But they acknowledged Monday that the storm could cause a delay.

"Our intention is that Friday will be business as usual regarding the October employment . . . report," said Jennifer Kaplan, a department spokeswoman.

Preparation for the jobs report typically ramps up in the week of the release. The federal government was closed Monday and final calculations could be delayed if the government stays shuttered because of the storm. ========= Cue the conspiracy theorists.
