CA Appeals Court: The governor may lower state workers' pay to the minimum wage if a state budget isn't in place. http://bit.ly/b3sk99
HCR may mean longer emergency room waits and more crowding. Unexpectedly! http://usat.me?39117590
RT @LeftCrusader: The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that non-farm jobs fell from 133,549k in Jan09 to 130,470k today. That's -3.079m.
RT @LeftCrusader: The 3 million jobs lost is a complete bullshit talking point by fixed news. | Its the official BLS non-farm employm't no.
RT @LeftCrusader: @DaleFranks CLinton creatd 20 m and Carter created 10m n 1 term. | Under Reagan, 17.7m jobs were created. So do I win?
RT @LeftCrusader: Bush creatd just over a million [jobs] n 8 years. | And 3m+ jobs have disappeared in 18 months of Obama.
RT @LeftCrusader: @DaleFranks CLinton creatd 20 m and Carter created 10m n 1 term. | *shrug* That's irrelevant to your claim about Obama.
RT @LeftCrusader, re: Obama creating jobs v. Bush. BLS payroll employment: 2001-2009, +1.86m jobs. Since 2009, -3.079 jobs. Ur math sucks.
Factory orders fall 1.4% in May after 9 months of gains http://usat.me?39114292 #RecoverySummer
Official unemployment rates: Jun 09: 9.5%, Jun 10: 9.5%. Actual unemployment rates: Jun 09: 11.4%, Jun 10: 13.1%
Isn't it interesting how, as unemployed people get discouraged and stop looking for work, the unemployment rate declines? That's by design.
Using the historical labor force participation rate (66.2%), the actual unemployment rate is 13.1%, up from 12.8% last month.
In June, 125k jobs lost, yet the unemploym't rate went DOWN to 9.5%, says the BLS. Unemploym't rate is really lowballed. #RecoverySummer
Anderson Cooper: It's inconceivable that on Day 73 of the oil spill, we're still talking about getting skimmers to start working on the oil.
The general opinion seems to be that the Feds are incompetent buffoons.
Billy Nungesser, Plaqumines Parish President, says he's not asking the CG permission to do anything, and the Feds can suck it.
Watching Anderson Cooper on CNN right now, tearing the Feds a new one for lack of transparency in the oil cleanup efforts. He seems PO'd.
RT @AblativMeatshld: CA Welfare Recipients Withdraw $12k From Strip Club ATMs http://fxn.ws/d5s4EY" | Meh. I could do that by myself.
