    LOL this means nothing after the US ended the claims extensions. You are not comparing apples to apples anymore. rather it is now more a campaign platform to say, "Look, unemployment claims have dropped and employment is better" when employment clearly is not and the participation rate keeps sinking. Kicking people out of unemployment benefits has never made such good propaganda touting the success of a failing economy.

    Ya but Moon, now these unemployed can discover themselves and their passions. Work gets in the way. Nancy said so. :P
