155,000 jobs added in December, unemployment rate 7.8% “The unemployment rate was 7.8%, vs the 7.7% expected: who else is surprised that the rate is now rising with Obama reelected and when a lower unemployment rate means an earlier end to QE4EVA? The labor force participation rate: 63.6%, same as November.” Our hunch is that the excuse the month will be the Mayan Calendar end-of-the-world scare.

Or we can blame Romney for not finding and working on the solutions to our problems even though he was rejected by half the populace.

He wouldn’t have helped us anyway. He only helps Corporate Greed.

Are these “new” jobs simply companies/stores gearing up for the CHRISTMAS season. I said CHRISTMAS rather than holidays just to piss off the commies/democrats/liberal/dipshits…whatever.

Yeah. They said the same thing LAST year about the increase in jobs, failing to notethat those jobs were temporary at best. And again, they are not counting the majority who are out of work. No longer looking, wrking part time. working at a job well below their educational and experiential level, exhausted unemployment benefits, etc. Itsall lies. The Government has always lied, but this is getting ridiculous. If a politician’s lips aremoving, they are likely lying through their teeth. Some representation.

Imagine how they would react if the real unemployment number was released.
The admin would implode if the sheeple knew the truth.
