Torrey, so what you are saying is that the numbers on the graph you create differ from the latest report they released. So either you are manipulating your numbers, or they manipulated theirs on their latest release? It is in this report sitting on my desk from the Department of Labor, which numbers should I believe. The ones that arrived sealed or the ones you set up in the chart to run?

We also need to remember while looking at unemployment numbers, that it only includes people looking for work, not the people who have been looking for a while and stopped checking in with the government or have stopped looking because there are no jobs out there. remember that the 96,000 jobs increase is still most likely a bad number, that will be adjusted to somewhere between 86,000 and 99,000. Which is still 45,000 less than is needed to move the needle for the increase in workforce population in this country. In order to keep up with the workforce population growth we need to average 145,000 jobs a month.

Lynda: You state that "many people in Dem party object to combining religion and politics" "People in Democratic party are Proud to be non-believers" (IN WHAT)? Dems would rather be Believers in a totally inept Obama who makes promises-promises, declares, give me another chance while this country is on the brink of supporting 50% population unable to find work to support themselves. Better to believe in a "GOD" than a false belief in someone who does not really care about YOU. Go join a worship group and maybe you will pesonally experience the love of others who share a much richer belief. Democrats like "John Kennedy" and prior to him would have scolded you for that assessment of the Democratic party.

Donald...as a combat vet you don't have any more rights than every other citizen of this country. You see, we believe in our system that all people are equal regardless of who they are. The problem this country is having is that some citizens believe they are more equal than others and should be treated preferentially. As for the President being "natural born", this witch hunt is over or haven't you heard that any intelligent person and almost every respected Republican concedes this topic. Now you don't earn rights, remember you "are endowed with" them. See our founding fathers. Also the President of the United States IS your CIC. This is not your choice. In the Military respect for "command" is essential to gain respect yourself.
