Thanks! From the link Project provided: "MILWAUKEE — A police officer has agreed to plead guilty to falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen for taking his dead cousin's identity as a teenager, according to the U.S. attorney's office."

That is only because of those people who have been dropped off of the unemployment roster. They still don't have jobs and no support either.

You are correct. They changed that last year to help barry's approval numbers. Its kind of like, no its just like the EPA changing its definition of what "safe amounts of radiation" are once those levels have been breached. You watch, the next standard that will be altered, now that they are finally admitting to the chemtrails, will be "safe" ppm levels of aluminum, barium and strontium.

And to the person "wondering" if his gov't is a bunch of traitors, which part are you still debating and with whom?

Well put it this way - the number of employed rose 200,000 and this moved the unemployment number by a full percent.

The government determines that 13 million unemployed is about 8.8% which would indicate about 147 million Americans able to work.

However, when we added 200,000 jobs the unemployment dropped from a full %. 1% should be 1.47 million. Using government math 100% or full employment would mean 20,000,000 employed Americans.

Short answer, they lie but no one cares so it doesn't matter.

Fun with unemployment data, courtesy of the St. Louis Fed:

Initial claims(800,000+ jobs added? Tell these people):

Total unemployed:

Manufacturing employment(This one will leave a mark):

Civilian participation rate:

Average duration of unemployment:

It's a pity the MSM rarely reports some of these other numbers.

I think your government statists in The US are about as accurate as ours in The UK, which is not very accurate at all!

It's no secret either, politicians have always manipulated the figures to suit their agenda and keep them in power or receuipt of a fat pay check.

There was a big issue that went mainstream over here in The UK about the police faking their figures, year after year they report crime had decreased when of course we can all see it has been on the increase in The UK, and it was revealed the statistics were total BS, the figures were for reported and category offences, and the coppers just changed the way crimes are reported and listed to get the figures they wanted.
