could give. Thank you, Paul.
We all know the figures, no matter what party is in office, do not present an accurate picture., for no other reason that people who are not working and are not actively seeking work are not counted as unemployed. Nevertheless, those figures are compiled in a consitent manner across all administrations.
However, a more complete examination of all the Governments data in this report shows the following.
1) This is now the longest stretch of 7.5% + unemployment on record.
2) Only 47% of adult Americans have full time jobs.
3) Only 58.7% of the adult civilian population is working at any job.
Now someone could argue that points 2 & 3 are misleading since the adult civilian populations include stay-at-home moms (Dads) Handicapped and other health challenged individuals whose infirmities preclude them from working, etc.
But granting them their objections and adjusting the figures for those cases still leaves those numbers at a disturbing high level.
If adult participation in the working force were at the same level as before this whole mess started, 9 million more Adults would be working than there are today.
So much for those deluded Obummer voters who believe that Democrats and Obummer are more concerned with the poor and average persons in our country.
Would a Republican, in the latest case Romney, be able to do better. Hard to say even though Romney has demonstrated an ability to succeed in the past, something that Obummer could not even convince a mentally challenged person to believe about himself.
I would argue, that no one, Republican or any of the fringe parties. could do worse. After all when Obummer, Pelosi, Barneke and the rest have done absolutely nothing right (and I am not just talking about economics) the worst anyone could do is to do exactly what this group of Yahoos has done.
