    When we start gaining more jobs then we're losing, then we'll be heading in the right direction. As long as we lose more jobs then gain, we're just heading down.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    You're gonna post charts from BLOGS that show something quite different from your claim - and you expect us to capitulate to your asinine claims?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    No, he wants us to say that losing fewer jobs then before means things are better. But as Moo showed before with man hours lost, as long as we are still in negative growth things are just getting worse. May not be getting worse as fast, but it is not getting any better.

    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    No problem, and the roll eyes weren't for you.

    A Positive growth that is too low would still not be good enough. You have to be able to employ new people getting out of school and entering the work force. I can imagine there are a lot of these Rock The Vote kids that will be putting a little more thought into the next election after having their ambitions crushed by King Hopey.

    No.

    Initial job losses were due to the usual things: business, contraction, unfilled vacancies, and retirement. Now, there are fewer "losses" because there is no more fat to cut.

    Again I must explain Stupidicus' graph in such simplistic terms that even he can understand:

    Take a bucket and fill it with water. Hang the bucket on a hook and poke a hole in the bottom of it. Watch the water drain out of the bucket. Eventually there's going to be less water draining out of the bucket, right? So, does that mean that the bucket is filling up with water or does that mean that the water loss in the bucket has reached it's limit?
