Over 94,500,000 Americans decide Not to Work!

Setting a record for the number of people deciding to ‘not join the work force’ has left Unemployment percentages uncertain.
The latest story of 5% unemployment is being hailed as a Victory by the perpetually surprised Keynesian Economist Class.
Given the record level of individuals who have simply decided not to work, or look for work, genuine mathematicians are left scratching their heads.
The Trumpeted 5% number is based on one the lowest levels of those wanting to work in the history of the United States.  In fact, the number of those who have decided not to work is roughly one Third of the Country!  That’s one out of three people have chosen to take a ‘different path’.
When you combine this with the 5% unemployment experienced just 10-years ago being assailed as a National Tragedy…
Serious thinkers must rightfully be confused.
The only conclusion we can draw from this information is Administration Number Monkeys will keep throwing their Poo at us.

    Out here in the southwest one of the striking examples of this are the native americans who get monthly payments from the casinos on the reservations. Those who are not drunk will tell you that the payments from the casinos are a curse on their people.

    Yep,those would the smart people. The rest of us are still slogging along as if it makes some kind of sense to work for what the rest of the people have figured out how to get for free.

      “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
      -Benjamin Franklin

        Good one, Mike. I hadn’t heard that quote before. Unfortunately, we’ve slowly created this system where it has actually become unprofitable to work.

        A big part of those unemployment numbers are people now on disability for depression…caused by chronic unemployment. Very few of them will ever get off of it, because they enjoy a higher quality of life then they did while working.
