    Any response I have would be flagged as “inappropriate” so never mind.

    Unfortunately, there’s some truth to it. Oregon changed the way they calculated unemployment Jan 2009 to quit including those who were signed up with the department, looking for work, but were not eligible for benefits. When they are added in, the actual unemployment number is about 22% for Oregon. Not really all that honest to change the method that they’ve been using for years, just to make it look better than it is.

    This is so uncomfortably close to the truth. Gummiment-numbers are so tweeked and obfuscated!

    The politicians looking for election are saying that they are going to create jobs. If they just redefine ‘collecting money on street corners’ as a ‘job’ then they’ve “created” a large number of ‘jobs’ without much work at all.

    Yeah! Finally, something anti-government.

    Next strip, government census taker counting himself.

    I thought it ironic that when the census was over, all of the census takers were unemployed.

    @NebulousRikulau much the same way Reagan “lowered” poverty by changing the official definition.

    Maybe Nancy Pelosi was thinking of this when she said “Let me say that unemployment insurance… is one of the biggest stimuluses (sic) to our economy.”

    It’s almost election time. Time to go to the cemetery and register everyone to vote ;-)

    Yes, Sheik I was a Census taker, but that was only to augment my 18 hr per week job that used to be full time until Bush baby got into office. Notice I didn’t say elected.

    “Maybe Nancy Pelosi was thinking…” Actually, I imagine she meant that money given to the unemployed goes immediately for the purchases of goods and services, which immediately stimulates the economy. Unlike giving tax breaks to the rich, who can afford to merely pocket the money until the economy improves, wasting taxpayers money and not helping the economy a bit.

    This comes out on Job Report day? Did Wiley do this on purpose?

    Almost election time, be sure to vote, and vote often.

    Very green of you, Wiley, recycling this Jan 2006 assessment. Correct as it is.
