    Truth always manages to float to the top like an unwelcomed turn doesn't it?

    So Jack Welch was right. Larry Kudlow is going to be crushed. He told Welch that no party screws with those numbers because then nobody can trust those numbers, and if you cannot trust governments numbers, the earth stops spinning. Yes, I know. Kudlow is an idiot.

    Isn't it a coincidence that Moonbeams state did something that would help Obama.

    Well, it's already been determined here that the jobless numbers are rigged, so I'm assuming the conspiracy theorists here support the media ignoring "bogus" numbers. Otherwise, they'd be changing their tune, and we all know conspiracy theorists never do that...

    The adjustment is timed so that it doesn't affect the unemployment rate for this month. How convenient.

    Many of the Obama truth squadders were posting that very thing. Anyone who thought those numbers could be fudged in any way was a conspiracy nut.

    Score one for the conspiracy nuts.

    Truth is nobody knows what the actual numbers are. It's all conjecture at this point. Dems say it's low while Repubs say it is actually high because people stopped looking. You will never be able to get meaningful statistics on this issue.

    Just go on Shadowstats. That guy calculates unemployment based on the pre1994 change in the calculation and based on depression area type calculations.

    It's an eye opener. Romney at least brought up those that quit looking and claimed over 10% unemployment in the last debate.

    Being cynical, at least a little bit, can be a good thing. At a minimum, consider how the message may benefit the messenger.
