But you're right..the unemployment rate is wrong. The obama peeps keep hoping that more become discouraged, and stop looking, so they DROP out of the "number of people looking", which has the REAL effect of lowering the unemp rate..even though it completely misrepresents the reality.
The new statisitic should be "percent of workers whpve dropped out (and become govt dependents)". Funny though how they all complain about GREED...but how many of them were buying mega millions tix in order to get filthy rich themselves. Hypocrits all. and typical...want to get $$ by doing nothing but picking some lottery numbers.
