    That’s right Jack, when you can’t come up with any fact, turn it into a conspiracy. and voila ! Just like a few characters do at Gocomics.

    He has suddenly woken up to the fact that unemployment figures have been cooked up for the last forty years.

    The “unemployment rate” is a highly technical figure that is only loosely connected with the actual percentage of people who are out of work and desperate. We use it because, being highly technical, it is objective. The fight is (or at least should be) over the real meaning.

    I can’t give the link (the article is too old) but in ‘81 the “unemployment rate” was 12%, and a brilliant Republican economist showed that St Ronnie had reduced it to 0% after subtracting those technically unemployed who shouldn’t be counted. He started out with the observation that every reputable economist agreed that full employment was a technical unemployment rate of 6%. Add to that the 6% who are school and military leavers looking for work when there’s plenty of work, and you can easily see that that 12% was really 0%.

    He’s dead now, but his equally brilliant Republican successors have clearly shown that now when the technical rate of unemployment is 7.8%, adding in those who should be counted but aren’t (under the fiend Obama), the real rate is at least 20%.

    Reminds me of Gerald from this forum, a libertarian with very few morals and ethics. He was in Chicago once decades ago and committed voter fraud so that means everyone else in Chicago since then does it still.

    Right but a guy standing up and saying Romney never paid taxes is embraced as the apex of truth, honesty, and gospel by the left.. With zero proof, and a history of dishonesty about his own finances.

    Of course the figures are not accurate.
    But if you speak up against the regime….
    JD & his ilk would like to bring back tar & feathering. But only for conservatives…

    Jack tweeted, Fox reported it. Jack explained that he meant to question, not accuse. Fox reported that too. That seems fair. (and balanced)

    Jack is, self -evidently, a welcher.

    Why all the fuss over president? Outside the indirect effect one might have in officially designated swing states, you don’t even have the right to influence the election of your president – that belongs to 534 anonymous elites. It won’t mean a thing if your state cannot swing. Get to work on the obstructionist House and fascist state legislatures instead. Any vote for president is “wasted”, so cast a protest for Jill Stein – at least the Greens favor letting you actually and directly elect your president some day.

    Does anyone take anything that Fox “reports” as being accurate? If so, why? It’s plainly nothing but a house organ for the Rethuglicans.

    Actually, the slogan for FAUX Noise should be “We Distort, You Deride”!
    No useless comments about how bad the other media outlets are? No? You just swallow their lies hook line and sinker? Spread your derision around to them too, they deserve it.

    The whole GOP are nothing but “Chicago Guys”. With rich and greedy patriots like Jerk Welch our country has been heading for bankruptcy, time to Jack Up Jerky Boy Welch’s taxes.
    Another lib without the ability to check his own party or the ability to express thought without childish name calling?

    (“Can’t accuse us of lying because we never SAID he was; we just ASKED if he was. Nyah nyah. And, of course, there is absolutely NO evidence that he is but we neglected to add that bit to our 30 second sound bite because that might confuse people.”)

    @Michael wme

    I tend to look at the statistics for black people which in April was 13% and then add some points for those who have given up. My guess is real unemployment is around 15%.
    For Black male teens, unemployment was 39.6% (virtually unchanged from. 40.2 % in March).

    Reid on the other hand, saying Romney didn’t pay taxes, can do no wrong.
