    YOU WON

    Last week the jerk in the White House said the economy was improving. Really? the unemployment rate sure isn't. it was 7.9% in January. Believe it or not the real unemployment rate is now higher than in most of the years of the Great Depression.

    Here are the numbers:

    1932 23.6%
    1934 21.7%
    1936 16.9%
    1938 19.4%

    The combined U3 and U6 rate today is 22.3% U3 is the rate you hear reported. U6 includes those who have been unable to find a job in the last 12 months and those who have given up looking.The Depression numbers simply included everyone unemployed. Starting in 1994 U6 was calculated. The current 22.3% combined rate is comparable to the Depression numbers. How about that Dianne Sawyer, Brian Williams et als?

    It's all part of the plan.

    Also, they've found the source of our trolls.
