      The numbers are being reported as great news, but they clearly are not.

      Some hopeful signs, perhaps, but, as one poster has pointed out, even the hopeful signs may represent nothing more than the end of unemployment benefits.

        benefits are just a piece of it I am sure

        but the jobs that are being reported are nothing special. (i assume)

        call center jobs, mcdonalds, ect.

        Fortunately the republicans are so far removed from reality that they make up big fat lies. :)

        •  I'm starting to appreciate the irony... (0+ / 0-)

          Wouldn't it be fitting if the Republicans end up losing a winnable election because their insistence on rolling back unemployment benefits led to reduction in the unemployment number, even if there isn't a proper reduction in full-time employment to go along with it?
