No Really -- There Are Rules

First please read the guidelines for making a comment on this blog. They will clear up a lot of misconceptions.

Secondly, don't comment if you have no idea what your are talking about. As an example, if you don't know there are two employment surveys or you think that posting numeric data in a graphic format is "technical analysis," then go elsewhere. I don't have time for that type of illiterate crap.

Third, if you believe that

1.) People are "disappearing from the labor force," or

2.) The government statistics are wrong or

3.) Shadowstats is valid, or

4.) Social Security is rigging unemployment statistics

please fine somewhere else to post.

Again, there are plenty of websites that have no standards and a lack of knowledge about economics. There are also plenty of websites that routinely print ill-informed and researched information on economics. They are (regrettably) a dime a dozen. If that is your cup of tea, fine. Please visit those websites and add to the ever-increasing ill-informed conspiracy theory garbage that routinely fills the internet.
