Just more of The Lies We Tell Ourselves. One particularly insidious aspect of this is that now those who have been yelling that the Occupy protesters should "get a job," will have more ammunition. Plus, President Hopey-Changey will be able to crow about his awesome "accomplishment" of bringing down the unemployment rate. It's just madness all around.

If the above chart is to believed, a little over 58% of civilians are employed. The percentage of employed people has dropped back to what it was in the early 80's, when many more women did not have jobs. I think that 150,000 jobs are needed every month just to take care of population growth, so 120,000 new jobs last month is not so good.

The sub-10% numbers are there for the blue-pill eaters, those who would rather believe everything is fine, that China and India don't have what used to be American jobs. In reality, the military is the only choice for our young job-seekers, and too many of them will be scarred for life, both mentally and physically, from the 3mpyre's wars.

Anybody "on the ground" in America knows that our country is in full blown collapse mode.

It's just the collapse is taking place so slowly that we can all pretend that things are normal.

Kind of like life itself.
