skinbonesballet asks: LOL you realize that the U.S. unemployment rate is formated to exclude those who have taken part time work because they can't find full time work and those who have dropped out of looking for work in general. Under Obama those numbers (U-6 unemployment) went from 9.2% to 14.8%. Many of the jobs the economy added last month were part time. The number of people with part-time jobs who wanted full-time work rose 7.5 percent to 8.6 million, the most since February 2009.

I mean, I know you don’t know this because you came to life like an hour ago to send us a message because we don’t allow anonymous asks, but … yeah, we’ve covered this numerous times in the past. — Ernie @ SFB
(Side note: I got into blogging to answer messages like this one, where people use that spitfire style of talking and they probably have one of those old-school IBM keyboards so the clacking of their keys can be heard at maximum volume. You can tell they worked so hard on it! Let’s give this guy some extra credit.)
