there are 20,219,890 that are 15-19 in the usa
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_th...emocracy_Class


the FACT is you have 13,000 people turning 18 every day..and 10,000 turning 65 every day


so the fact that 10,000 boomer retire everyday is NULLIFIED by the fact that 11,000-13,000 turn 18 every day

and BTW...most boomers are putting retirement off

Baby Boomers Are Pushing Off Retirement for 5 Years, says BoA Merrill Lynch | Von Aldo

I used 3 different sources, so you cant say ''biased like faux"




and while some 18yr old might not work..they are in the WORKING AGE GROUP...and BTW there are many 65 yr olds NOT RETIRING..
I don't have an agenda except to figure out what the real unemployment picture looks like. Since I know the government tells the truth all the time and all.

look at the prices in the stores

have you benn to the store

prices are going up, and up

coffee is double what it was 4 years ago

coffee up

sugar up

cotton up

corn up

all other vegitable up

all meats up

almost everything us up



REAL INFALTION IS CURRENTLY ABOUT 10-15% or more...unfortuantely the government(from either party) doesnt give us the REAL numbers



it certainly is for every working class person or old person

you think that your utility cost being up is not inlation???

you think your medical/pharm costs being up is not inflation???

you think your clothing costs being up is not inflation???

you think your housing (rent and rela taxes) being up is not inflation???


you think food costs going up is not inflation???

you think building supply costs (ie home depot) being UP is not inflation???


almost EVERYTHING we use has gone up by at least 10% to in some cases 30% in the last 3 years...and you are going to tell me inflation is "only 2% or less"



have you been to the store???...have you SEEN THE PRICES???? milk is nearly $4 a gallon...meats have gone though the roof...in 2004 a 3lb can of coffee was about $3...today its a 2.2lb can of coffee and its $10...over a 300% increase in less than 10 years

sorry you are too blind to see

you certainly do prove that the sheeple are out there for the slaughter

so are you going to tell me YOU BELIEVE the government TELLING YOU that inflation is at 0-3% when PRICES in nearly everything have risen 10-20% or more????

GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE SAND...dude



the 'inflation rate' is not REAL INFLATION (ie COST inflation) that real americans (and seniors) feel with almost everything we buy

costs are going up on almost everything..especially food (which is NOT counted in the 'inflation rate')


Junk fish called Tauplia which was selling in 2008 for 1.28 a pound is now close to 6.00(and more) a pound...Catfish that averaged between 3.49 and 3.99 at 6.50 plus.... Not just one store, they are all similar in price. Paper towels are highway robbery.....deli ham/turkey which I used to get for 2-4 a pound...now 6-9 a pound


last Thanksgiving,,Sweet potatoes they were 49 cent/pound...now $1.79/pound

breyers icecream HALF GALLON, was (2008) 2for 5...now its 1.5 quarts and its 4 or 5/each

Even cooking oil 48 fl oz... went from $2.99 (reg. p about 6 months ago) to $3.69 (sale)... from $4.29 (reg. price).
I agree with you here. The CPI may be a bigger joke than the unemployment numbers and that's saying a lot.

As to the fact that there have been no dollars in circulation since 1933, and that "dollar bills" are worthless IOUs (See: Title 12 USC Sec. 411, and House Joint Resolution 192, June 1933), it is clear you are not informed of the facts of the matter.

You're relying to someone who believes that CPI is a meaningful measuring device. So whatever you do don't rely on what you see and deal with everyday instead always, always, believe what the snake oil salesmen tell you.

Thank you for informing me that "dollar bills are worthless," because now I know when I plunked down $24.50 of those "worthless dollar bills," as trade for a fine steak lunch, what I must have received was a worthless steak.

Anyone who thinks that the only measure of value of money is how much it is irredeemable for a yellow metal, really doesn't know what they are talking about. Dollar bills buy things of value and that's all that counts. Also, if you think that money is just pieces of paper with dead presidents on them you don't live in this century. Even Milton Friedman rejected that. Checking accounts, credit cards, repos and electronic transfers are all money.
