    Default What is the TRUE unemployment number?

    Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent -- a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly one-third of America's 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more.

    The whole story.

    It's more than what they say it is, and always has been.

    And the WH's "official" number will much lower by Nov 2012.

    The "real" number is on the left hand side of this page, just up from the 47 million EBT card carriers.

    Remember, neither the "official" or "actual" includes collage and high school grads looking for work.

    Default Re filers?

    If obama's jobs bill had passed there would have been an extension of benefits for those that have exceeded the 99 weeks allotted earlier. IF that were to happen, there would be a landslide of re filers seeking that extension and we might find out a totally different %..... Like about 12-15% as a real number of unemployed workers that were working in late 08' when the ca ca hit the fan.... The reported numbers are a real joke, but I'm sure, as mentioned, the numbers will be even further off before 2012 election time rolls around.... It's similar to "saved jobs" as claimed by the WH, a number that is impossible to actually figure accurately... I'm so sick and tried of these lying assholes... And that is directed toward BOTH parties.... The liberals kinda get a pass because everyone knows liberals lie....

    Unemployment numbers have always been off, as some get discouraged and quit looking. This is nothing new, but the deceit is rising (?) to new levels.

    Rod, Shue, Z, Ultra (what's left of him,) 1986, and the rest of the resident liberals will probably place the blame on Bush for this reality.
