Al, you are right , what came out the first week of march for Feb total report was 8.3. Goggle (unemployment for 2009) and you will see the stats for the whole year under the bls.gov link. enough for this argument, the stats prove me right so you just go on believing you whatever you want.
Inq, are you talking about 2014? March report from BLS for Feb 2014 was exactly that. seems you get it.
Gaus, the reason is , he is adamant about facts, 2 tenths ,5 tenths whatever! It's not about the amount it is about FACTS! Toes was wrong but Al's facts were wrong too. You see he was using fact check instead of the BLS.
Yup, wally, Hear ,Hear , Hear. Do you want me to spell it 100 times? Senior moment, you do realize when you become a senior citizens you get more perks like a senior moment. Are you going to police everyone's English or just mine. Sorry I upset you so much when I make a mistake.
Cactus, our democrat friends don't want to here anything about the oil being transported by Warren Buffets trains and how dangerous it is. Buffet backed this administration so he needs to get his paybacks. Just like Soros and the Brazil deal.
Al, you are still wrong about the unemployment for Jan 2009. According to bls.gov on Feb 6 2009 the total unemployment for January was 7.6. The figures come out every month on the first Friday for the month before by the BLS.
My reason for continuing this is how you are always wanting facts and that is the fact. Of course you may be considering the amount of people that quit looking for jobs. If you figure that into todays figures the rate would be much higher, something like 12% or more.
Sorry Al according to BLS (bls.gov) it was 7.6. your fact check is a bit off.
Al, You are the one always wanting facts. Maybe before to write something you may want to check your facts. Unemployment January ,2009 went to 7.6% not 8.1 and most of Bushes years it was around 5% that is until the House and senate went to the democrats in 2007, also gas went up during the summer 2008 then dropped sharply by the end of the year, $1.74 average on January 20 2009.
Limric, yup, and we managed to get ink all over our hands. Really dates us, some of the youngsters now don't even know what a fountain pen is. We also learned how to read write and add. The young don't even have a clue how to give change without a calculator.
Off topic!. Sheila Jackson Lee said on the congress floor that our constitution is 400 years old! That can be our laugh of the day.
No. limric, it appears he is talking about lost to the Ukraine. The Ukraine looses not the U.S. It also may mean the Russian are ready to take over all of the Ukraine or at least all of the western Ukraine.
