Maybe they should ask if you're employed or not, but then the administration would have to admit that unemployment is 20% or more.
Because of these factors, whenever there is an extended economic slowdown -- and this one has really been going on for more than two years -- more and more people drop out of the workforce. When jobs begin to open up, that means there is a lag before the measured unemployment rate begins to decline since those people reenter the workforce now that employment seems possible. To make a serious dent in unemployment, we will need sustained job growth of more than 200,000 jobs/month for an extended period. We haven't seen numbers like that for several years and haven't seen it on a sustained, multi-year basis since Clinton was President.
I finally got my form from the census yesterday. I think that all the hoopla has really been much ado about nothing...If you don't want to answer any questions other than the # of people in your house, then don't do it. It says on the form that you don't have to answer any of the 'information collection' questions. I'll just be telling them that I have 4 people in my house.
1.Is it the TRUTH?
2.Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3.Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4.Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
its just more fear-baiting from the tea-right. ANYTHING that happens under Obama's watch, whether it has ANYTHING to do with him or not, will be regarded as a vast left-wing communitst takeover plot by some. Conversely, anything done under a republican regime will be to protect America, and if you question it, you must be un-patriotic or have something to hide! Once again, lack of consistency.
I haven't heard it yet, but I bet green beer will be tagged as a leftist tactic to indoctrinate beer drinkers into socialism! You know, "happy hour"?
