32. someone has to earn money to pay for the F'ing wall

It will take another 100 million in tax revenue and of course the wealthy won't be paying their share. Hell we're taxing citizens in the womb.

10. LOL! Since the entire US population is a bit shy of 320 million,

a number that includes children (75 million), retired people (40 million), and those who are unable to work because of a disability (14 million), that leaves 191 million people who are able to work. If 100 million of those people are unemployed, that leaves only 91 million who have jobs - in other words, the unemployment rate would be 52%! The worst unemployment rate during the Great Depression was 25%, in 1933. Why hasn't someone other than SCROTUS noticed that we've doubled the worst unemployment rate of the Depression?

20. Remember when the Reagan admin classified catsup as a vegetable?

But at least catsup is made of vegetables, so even that was closer to reality than 100 million unemployed people in a country of 300 million.

22. USA population roughly 330 million, including children, disabled, and retired seniors

that would mean roughly 1:3 unemployed, including children, disabled, and retired seniors. Good grief!

24. Sometimes I listen to Hannity on my drive to work.

He likes to say, over and over and over again, that 95 million Americans are "out of the workforce". What he doesn't explain is that that number includes retirees, students, stay at home parents, etc. His audience infer that he means that 95 million are unemployed - which is exactly what he wants them to infer. No doubt Trump got his figure from Hannity or Limbaugh or another one of the clones.

Trump, like most Republicans, is too stupid and/or lazy to listen carefully to what is actually said.

30. from Forbes

Those 347,000 for December, 2013, however, are still out there not working, and suffering. Indeed, they joined a near record of more than 102 million Americans not working in December, all still out there and suffering without jobs. Those 102 million Americans are the human face of an employment-population ratio stuck at a pitiful 58.6%. In fact, more than 100 million Americans were not working in Obama’s workers’ paradise for all of 2013 and 2012.

The 102.159 million Americans not working in December is not the all-time record of Americans not working. That all-time record was set in October, 2013, at 102.896 million. The employment-population ratio that month was an even more pitiful 58.2%.

31. This claim has been debunked

I keep hearing this sad talking point from right wingers https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2016/09/16/trumps-absurb-claim-that-92-million-americans-represent-a-nation-of-jobless-americans/?tid=pm_politics_pop_b

“Right now, 92 million Americans are on the sideline outside of the workforce, and they’re not a part of our economy. It’s a silent nation of jobless Americans.”

— Donald Trump, speech to the Economic Club of New York, Sept. 15, 2016


Trump is grabbing onto a GOP talking point that first emerged in 2014 when the official unemployment rate starting falling below 7 percent. (It is now 4.9 percent.) Republicans started citing a decline in the labor participation rate, which has occurred largely because the baby boom generation has begun to retire.

But here, Trump expresses the rate as a raw number (“92 million Americans”) and then amps up the rhetoric by referring to a “nation of jobless Americans.” But this is rhetorical poppycock, as we will demonstrate.....

The Pinocchio Test

As you can see, it is absurd to claim that 94 million Americans are on the sidelines of the economy and are part of a “jobless America.” You can’t be jobless if you don’t want a job.

Only a small percentage of these people want a job, as the rest are retired, in school, on disability or caring for children. No matter how much Trump wants to suggest the economy is on the rocks, the fact remains that the unemployment rate is below 5 percent — which is pretty good by any measure.

Four Pinocchios

I guess this where the official Administration moves to providing made up numbers to justify their own stupidity outside of using official, tangible and credible numbers?

I only WISH I could do that with my debt.

35. Get a job mom

My mom is 75 years old and disabled. She is a Trump fanatic. She was ranting about Trump the other week and how people need to get jobs. I told her, "mom, you need to seriously start looking for a job you can do at your age and abilities, the things that allow you to live (Medicare and SSI) are in Trump's sights, so you'll need to take care of yourself now, get a job mom."
