FTW, read and learn: Unemployment rate leaps to 14-year high of 6.5% - MarketWatch "WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The U.S. unemployment rate jumped to a 14-year high of 6.5% in October as nearly a quarter million jobs were lost, the Labor Department reported Friday. U.S. nonfarm payrolls fell by 240,000 in October following a revised decline of 284,000 in September, which was the largest job loss in seven years." __________ "Largest (monthly) job loss in 7 years". Hmmm, what happen 7 years ago in September????? W. Bush is his own Economic 9/11. The bastard terrorist could never hurt our nation as deeply as this incompetent President did. That's REAL economic fact, FTW.
