National unemployment down to 9 percent


WASHINGTON (AP) - The unemployment rate is down sharply to 9 percent, the lowest level in nearly two years.

But the economy generated only 36,000 net new jobs, the fewest in four months.

The January report illustrates how job growth remains the economy's weakest spot, even as other economic indicators point to a recovery that is strengthening.

If You Don't Know By Now...

...that these numbers are total FANTASY used only for cheap political points in the state run media than you will never understand economics.

This is just like the FED saying that printing more money will "Help" job growth...its time to start acting less like a bunch of pussies and more like Egyptians. They are ripping us off every day and then generating the numbers behind the lies to justify those crimes.

This will become painfully apparent in the next few months as inflation has already gripped the commodities markets which conveniently don't get factored in to the FED's measurement of inflation.

Put down your iTampon and read a book. Start with ending the Federal Reserve and we can start to rebuild the economy and the dollar for real.
