Bureau of Labor Statistics OFFICIAL Unemployment is at 16.5%! (link)
Even the gov't is admitting this! Of course they low-ball it, so it is obviously even HIGHER!

I can't cut/paste it, as it's a chart...but just look at the last row and column to see the OFFICIAL number!

No kidding.

And with the new report... they are predicting 13% U-3 unemployment... meaning at least 20% U-6 and 30% real unemployment... if the dollar doesn't collapse...

If it does... TOTAL DOOM awaits us.

And that only counts the people actually collecting unemployment. The actual jobless rate is probably much higher.

Its gonna get worse. Maybe alot worse. This is the time when most people are working. Come november and then january you're going to see a huge drop in employment. This could be the winter we start to see the unemployed without homes out in the streets in mass.

Actually... Unemployment during the Depression was between 20-25% and things weren't so peachy...

If you haven't started preparing for whats coming, its almost too late...

This is the last growing season before the real shit hits...

Good luck.

Ok, believe what you want...

Do a little research and see what the REAL unemployment numbers are...

There's a firm in Boston who does independent research, and doesn't fudge the numbers like the Government does...

We're in a world of hurt...

The stock market crashed in 1929... The great depression started in 1931...

Get the picture?

We're not even feeling the pain yet.

Actually thats not right at all. Most folks don't work. Pensioners, retired, moms, children,

The statistics for unemployed are only on the ones offically looking for work at state employment offices. What is really happening is 50% or more of the unemployed who would like to work have given up.

MOst of the employed are government workers who really don't just take from those that do give something back to a community. So figure it out. The flushing toilet bowl swirl is speeding up but fast.

Only way the powers that be can get out of this is a plague or war. Which I"m sure they'll do.

"I find it strange that stocks go up ostensibly on account of Meredith Whitney's bull call on Goldman and a handful other bailed-out financial firms. I find that strange not only because nothing really changed inside the vaults of these institutions -the level of toxicity remains , say, elevated-, but also because Whitney simultaneously provides the worst unemployment prediction emanating to date from a "serious" finance source: 15%. U3, that is. Which would, if you allow me the back on the envelope, take U6 to around 30%, and Shadowstats' alternate U6 likely between 35% and 40%. If Whitney's right, the US economy would fall into what can only be called a pitch black hole."

thats not true. 84% is very misleading. Most of those employed are government employed. And governemnt workers give nothing back. THey actually suuck the pot dry even faster.

Its all smoke and mirrors for the last decade or two. Interesting how the banksters are doing it. They know americans will do anything for the almighty dollar. Americans are bootlicking pigs.

70% of the volume in today's markets is from high-frequency program trading [link to snurl.com]

After a former Goldman Sachs employee was arrested by the FBI on federal charges for stealing software codes from Goldman's automated stock and commodities trading business, a story in Bloomberg indicated Goldman was concerned that there was a danger somebody who knew how to use their stolen program could use it to "manipulate markets in unfair ways". So how was Goldman using it?

 Quoting: NoMoreCages

Damn when I worked for the Government I had to pay all those taxes did I miss something? Maybe I should see if i can get it back since I paid. I wonder where my paycheck went if I did not spend it in my community?

One thing i loved hearing from people when I worked for the government is that they paid my wages. Well #1 if one persons tax paid mt wages they made alot more than I did obviously so I could give a shit less. And #2 it is kind of ironic that i could make the claim that I also paid my wages.
