If you drug tested the general population you'd probably get higher numbers than that.

Labor force participation rate nowadays is as low as it was in early 1980's when Ronnie Reagan was in office. Look it up.

First off, the BLS defines "employed", not the definition of "part time" by federal labor standards if you want to push the subject.


Second, no me calling you a right winger is just me describing you, no more than you calling me a left winger.
It isnt an insult, it is simply placing you on a political line that goes form left to right and vice versa.

But that is neither her nor there seeing as This isnt about defending Obama, remember , the person I responded to said the economy is great, but said republicans are responsible for it.

odds, are you will ignore this entire part of my post for the 8th time.

The American public, victimized by Obama's Marxist administration, understands this.
Real wages have been stagnant since the 70s. Has nothing to do with Obama.
