    This woman is typical of the liberal lame brains in Congress. So they made her chair of the DNC.

    Facts and reality have a liberal bias.

    Another clueless "economist" that believes in the BLS published manure.
  4. Much easier to just post the Economic Participation Rate chart. Since these clowns will always dismiss the U6 composite unemployment rate and/or label anything that Shadow Stats publishes as a "conspiracy", the participation rate is about the only thing left to silence these idiots.

    Add back in the millions who have quit looking for work.

    Maybe this chart will give convert a better perspective. I also think the "noise" in the chart during Obama's term is of significance.

    Compare it to MIT's billion price project ( can't link it here via a picture)

    You'll notice MIT's BPP is similar to the BLS whereas Shadowstats is in another world.

    I don't believe shadowstat's methodology. Really, the annual rate of inflation is not over 10%.

    Shadowstats uses the methodology from pre-revision (back in 94, I think it was - it will tell you). MIT's project uses a different calculation and neither refutes the other method.

    The BLS is a whole different story as the published methodology is flawed and has been called out numerous times.

    As for whether the inflation rate is over 10%, that depends on what items you are referring to. Peanut Butter, for instance, is up 22% vs. prior year.

    My property taxes are up 14% this year, while my house is worth less.

    BTW, so far as I know none of the inflation calculations look at taxes. It's my single greatest expense by far, and not even counted.
  9. The DNC Chair is proving the point people really are dumber when they watch Fox News.
