Jobless Rate Falls to 8.3%, Altering Face of Campaign

• New York Times
The Labor Department reported on Friday that the unemployment rate had fallen all the way back to the level of President Obama’s first full month in office, to 8.3 percent, from a high of 10 percent in late 2009. Yet unemployment also remains higher than it has been for any presidential election since the Great Depression.

From my understanding, this information is dwarfed by the fact that jobless is defined as:  MINUS THOSE ON SOCIAL SECURITY WELFARE, looking for jobs...  meaning the number is more than doubled, in reality.  Look around you people!

 What the hell does .3 of a person look like, anyway?
