Come on guys, surely you can find something to discredit this. I think even the Prez will say something about there only being 120,000 jobs added being way too slow.

News Headlines (http://www.cnbc.com/id/46975031 - broken link)

To make a dent in the 350,000 first time filers, for unemployment bennies, last week.


Wait, something isn't adding up.


Who are they counting again? Who are they leaving out of the totals?

I've heard that the economy needs tonadd around 250k jobs a month just to keep up with population growth. Is that true? If it is than it clear whatever methodology the Labor Dept is using is somewhat flawed.

I guess that many of the so-called 'conservatives' who inhabit this forum worry everytime news comes out concerning an improving economy: sooner or later, they will have no excuse for not getting a job.

They did revise Jan non-farm payrolls down. Now that's good news for the America haters. Wait, wait.... I think FOX is about to come out with their interpretation. We ought to get some "good" negatives soon.

Why would we have that need? We didn't feel that need in the first decade of the 2000, did we?
