    The Eagles are playing the Cowboys. In the game, the Cowboys scored per quarter, like this:

    1st-3
    2nd-6
    3rd-7
    4th-10

    See? Their point total increased each quarter giving them 26 points. That's positive growth, right? No so fast. The Eagles scored:

    1st-7
    2nd-7
    3rd-3
    4th-14

    So, even though even though the Cowboys scored more points than the previous quarter, they still lose the game. See, until you get the complete picture, you're only getting half the story. This is Stupidicus' game.
    The GDP is the cowboys , who or what is the Eagles ?

    What an idiotic analogy

    The Eagles represent the unemployment rate. And it's only idiotic to you because it blows a hole in your entire stupid thread.

    NOT WHEN THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS GETTING BIGGER ALONG WITH IT!!!!!!

    We still have positive job growth , you just don't understand why the number can rise with positive growth.

    Get informed and return. Otherwise we cannot debate , you are not informed enough.

    OMG! You have brought stupidity to new heights. So to you, if 5 more people are hired this month as opposed to last month yet 20 people lost their jobs, you consider this positive job growth? You are a fucking moron and this is why you need to be banned.

    If you had even an elementary understanding of arithmetic you'd know this.

    The UE rate IS NOT going up because of massive job loses.
    It is going up because UNEMPLOYED people are now starting to look for work again.

    This PROVES you don't understand the UE number and how it is calculated , I explained this dynamic in another thread , go re-read.

    Basic fucking arithmetic says I'm not. Let's break this down one more time:

    40
    -100
    -60

    The answer to the above basic math problem, is it a positive or a negative? And...unemployment numbers mean people are looking for jobs? Wow. So let me get this straight, if 300,000 jobless claims were filed last month, this equates into job hunters? Holy fucking shit. The stupid is with you isn't it. Explain to me how looking for a job constitutes finding one.
