The Clown Prince's narcissism is getting so bad that even Emily Yoffe at Slate notices: Today We Are Gathered … To Hear More About Me.
Someone needs to tell Barack Obama—it must get particularly confusing this time of year—that his own birth is not Year One, the date around which all other events are understood. His much-noted, self-referential tic was on cringe-worthy display Friday when the president gave his eulogy for the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, who served in Congress for half a century representing Obama’s birth state of Hawaii.
Inouye was a Japanese-American war hero (he lost an arm in World War II, destroying his dream of becoming a surgeon), and as a senator he served on the Watergate committee, helped rewrite our intelligence charter after scandals, and was chairman of the Senate committee that investigated the Iran-Contra affair. It’s the kind of material any eulogist could use to give a moving sense of the man and his accomplishment. But President Barack Obama’s remarks at Inouye’s funeral service were a bizarre twirl around his own personal Kodak carousel.
Obama is a legend in his own mind. Even better, he just can't keep his stories straight: Obama Has to Fib Even at a Funeral.

Are you ready for the Obama aspirin tax? How about the Obama tax on pacemakers and knee replacements?
Effective Jan 1, 2013, aspirin will be heavily taxed under Obamacare. The only explanation given was that they are white and they work.
Details here. Of course, even more enjoyable is the Obamacare tax on medical devices like pacemakers and knee replacements. Looks like some Democrats finally read the bill they voted for and are having second thoughts on that one.

Confused why the unemployment rate dropped? The same, favorite BLS adjustment - a drop in the labor force participation rate which declined by 0.2% to 63.6% once again, as the number of people out of the labor increased by over 540K to 88,883,000.
146K jobs added while 540K gave up on finding a job and likely went on disability or welfare. That's Obama economics. And the 146K will be revised downward next month like the September and October numbers were this month.

From the always interesting Zero Hedge - When Work Is Punished: The Tragedy Of America's Welfare State:
for increasingly more it is now more lucrative - in the form of actual disposable income - to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work. This is graphically, and very painfully confirmed, in the below chart from Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (a state best known for its broke capital Harrisburg). As quantified, and explained by Alexander, "the single mom is better off earnings gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045."
I have to observe from the chart that there doesn't seem much point to even working at all since $0 income plus welfare works out to about the same as earning $55,000 without any government benefits.
That point hasn't been lost on the citizenry either:
But perhaps the scariest chart in the entire presentation is the following summarizing the unsustainable welfare burden on current taxpayers:
- For every 1.65 employed persons in the private sector, 1 person receives welfare assistance
- For every 1.25 employed persons in the private sector, 1 person receives welfare assistance or works for the government.
I like to think of it as uninvited guests at the nation's dinner tables. If you have a job and your spouse has a part time job, when you sit down to dinner you have a welfare moocher or a government bureaucrat sitting down with you. Pass the potatoes Barack, and don't scarf all the chicken!
There's lots of consternation in Washington and among the chattering class over the "fiscal cliff" and while the hype will whipsaw markets and keep the politicians busy, it really is a drop in the bucket:
I see the future: The politicians will meet and fret and hold press conferences and predict disaster. Then they'll reach a deal.
It will just postpone the reckoning, but they'll congratulate themselves, and the media will move on.
America, however, continues to go broke.
"They're not going to admit that we're bankrupt, and they won't admit that we're on the verge of a major, major change in our society," says Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas. "So they'll keep putting it aside, but then we'll eventually probably destroy the dollar."
The across-the-board cut, or "sequestration," was designed to be so distasteful that Congress would be moved to cut more deliberately. If it doesn't act, $110 billion in projected spending will be automatically cut -- half from domestic spending, half from the Pentagon.
"They assume that they made it so bad that they wouldn't accept it, but I don't think they did," said Paul. "They're not even ... talking about real cuts. They're talking about cuts in baseline budgeting."
Right, the old baseline budgeting trick.
"If they propose, let's say, a $10 billion increase for next year and cut it down to $9 billion, they say they're cutting 10 percent. But they're not cutting anything, they're only increasing it $9 billion instead of $10 billion. It's done on purpose so that people get confused."
Even better, the amounts under discussion are miniscule compared to the across-the-board cuts that are needed:
"When government spending is about $3.8 trillion, you're going to cut $100 billion? That's a deck chair on the Titanic," said Russ Roberts of the Hoover Institution.
And the US budget is looking more like the Titanic every day.

While there had been speculation that the BLS may delay the release of its October nonfarm payroll number until after the election, it turned out there was no reason to worry. Perhaps this is because the number, while at stall speed, was not quite as horrible as some had expected (even if the change in average hourly earnings did tumble to new all time lows) and so boosted Obama's reelection chances. There was, however, another closely tracked number which perhaps is far more indicative of the economic "growth" in the past 4 years, which certainly had a delayed release. The number of course is that showing how many Americans are on foodstamps, and usually is released at the end of the month, or the first day or two of the next month. This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August foodstamp data. One glance at the number reveals why: at 47.1 million, this was not only a new all time record, but the monthly increase of 420,947 from July was the biggest monthly increase in one year. One can see why a reported surge in foodstamps ahead of the elections is something the USDA, and the administration may not have been too keen on disclosing.
Look at the bright side - there are a lot more customers for Obamaphones now.

When terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 of this year and killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, there were no U.S. Marines deployed in Libya to defend U.S. diplomats, diplomatic facilities and classified information and equipment.
However, says the State Department, a Marine Security Detachment was deployed on that day to carry out those duties at the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados.
Not to worry, Clown Prince Obama will continue to lie about the Libyan disaster as will the court jester, Laughing Joe Biden:
While our consulate in Benghazi was guarded by unarmed Libyan contractors making $4 an hour, our embassy in Vienna received an expensive charging station for its new electric cars to help fight climate change.
Even MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell says Vice President Joe Biden lied during Thursday's debate when he said twice that no one in the Obama administration knew that requests for extra security had been made by our Libyan ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and other members of our consulate in Benghazi. The State Department knew "in real time," as Mitchell put it in her post-debate analysis, that requests had been made.
The requests were denied, despite 230 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012. With 48 taking place in Benghazi, two at the U.S. diplomatic compound where Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were murdered on Sept. 11, 2012, a date that by itself should have prompted enhanced security.
Four days after the use of an ancient DC-3, along with other security requests, was being denied, on May 7, 2012, the State Department authorized the U.S. Embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric-vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool's new Chevrolet Volts.
As Biden and President Obama proclaim the war on terror is over, al-Qaida is "back on its heels" and Osama bin Laden is dead, climate change remains in their view the greatest threat America and the world face.
It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

President Barack Obama attended a fundraiser at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in Manhattan that featured a champagne tower of 350 bottles worth $105,000 - more than twice the median household income of an American family.
The tower of $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, known as 'Ace of Spades' because of its label, is a permanent fixture at the club.
'It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space,' a 40/40 representative told the New York Post. 'It’s beautiful—breathtaking. It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.'
The median income for an American family was $51,413 in 2011.
I like the part where the Clown Prince joked that his daughters were upset that they couldn't be there. I guess they missed out on some of Jay-Z's famous lyrics (lightly edited for profanity):
Motherf*ckers wanna act loco
Hit ‘em wit, numerous shots with the fo’-fo’
Faggots wanna talk to po-po’s, smoke ‘em like cocoa
F*ck rap, coke by the boatload
F*ck that, on the run-by, gun high, one eye closed
Left holes through some guy clothes
Stop your bullshitt*n’, glock with the full clip
Motherf*ckers better duck when the fool spit
One shot could make a nigga do a full flip
See the nigga layin’ shocked when the bullet hit
Quite a classy guy, that Jay-Z. But the bottom line is that Obama is An Unserious President In Seriously Perilous Times:
The Mideast is in turmoil, the economy is faltering and the president opts to spend precious time with David Letterman, Beyonce and Jay-Z. Are we the only ones to wonder if Obama's suited to be president?
Last week, Michelle Bachmann had it partly right when she said that "President Obama needs to get his priorities straight."
There's no question that Obama should, as Bachmann recommended, cancel his appearance on the Letterman show and agree to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
But the idea that Obama's problem is a mixed-up priority list is giving the president more credit than he deserves. Time and again, Obama has proved that he is simply incapable of taking the job of president seriously. And the repercussions of this grow by the day.
Not to worry though, Obama's wife Michelle the Moocher wants you to know that Barry is still feeling the pain of Americans, despite living in the cushy confines of the White House.
Yeah, right. Michelle will say anything to get some more opulent taxpayer-paid vacations with her pals.

This is one must-see video. And I wager you pass the link on to many friends for their enjoyment.
It's by Dr. Barbara Bellar, a motor-scooter-riding animal lover, Army veteran and Republican attorney who's taking on a massive challenge of the Chicago political machine for a state Senate seat to combat the fiscal insanity in Barack Obama's adopted home state, which isn't an easy job, as you might imagine, so she made this hilarious homemade video that captures the colossal stupidity of ObamaCare in one (very long) sentence, like this one.
Click through for the video, but here's the sentence:
“We’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding (laughing & applause) same sentence – with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese and (laughing & applause) and financed by a country that’s broke.”
You can't make this stuff up.

Unlike most of his promises, Obama got right on his latest submission to Islamic terrorism:
By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.
Obama also tried to pressure Google who amazingly told him to pound sand.
Stand by for Obama's emergency request for more funds to hire thought police, because once you give in to the Islamic terrorists, they'll be back for more and there's a whole lot of free speech for them to use as an excuse. Wait until they spot million dollar Obama donor Bill Maher's film Religulous:
Note to Islamic wingnuts - the monkey on the right is named Mohammed.

Cheri Jacobus: Speak softly and carry a big 9-iron
We now know that while President Obama was campaigning in Norfolk, Va., on Sept. 4, and was mugging for the cameras and getting lifted off the ground in a bear hug on the campaign trail in California on Sept. 9 — the dates both warnings came — he was also skipping at least six of his daily security briefings (now claiming to have read them, but declining in-person, face-to-face briefings), and did not even inform Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and other officials of the threat or put them on high alert in any way, shape or form.
Stevens and several of his colleagues are dead as a result.
We also now know that Obama’s hand-picked ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, might be responsible for the reprehensible instruction to leave U.S. Embassy security unarmed in one of the most dangerous places on Earth, on the anniversary of the deadliest attack on the United States of America since Pearl Harbor. We do not know if President Obama was aware, or if he was aware but simply didn’t care or understand how dangerous this move was, not only to our embassies, but to all of us, as we see from today’s unfolding global attacks on the United States.
Stevens and his colleagues were sitting ducks, due to Obama’s inexcusable failures. Now Americans are out-and-out targets for assassins and terrorist attacks worldwide.
The mainstream media has bent over backward to protect President Obama and promote him for his reelection. But the stakes are much higher now than any of us dreamed possible mere days ago. We need a competent president but don’t have one. Can we at least, please, have competent journalism as our last defense?
Lots of luck with that last wish. When BO breaks wind the MSM's cheeks puff up.

Certain sectors of the agricultural industry are experiencing a “less impressive” growth rate than anticipated by the Obama Administration, which is stepping in to spark that growth. And it doing so in Uganda, where its Commodity Production and Marketing campaign aims to “sustainably increase the production and marketing of quality maize, beans, and coffee” in that African nation.
The administration last year devised a plan to cut Ugandan poverty in half, while also reducing other social ills, such as the frequency of cattle raiding across the country. As U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor reported last year, “Plan Uganda” will cost American taxpayers $3.5 billion from 2011-2015.
Obama is sure free with the US taxpayers' cash isn't he? If it is like Obama's US stimulus plan, I expect there are Obama cronies getting rich off this loot too.

"Obama has added $5 trillion to the national debt, and has nothing to show for it. Do you know how difficult that is to do?"
Obama has added $5 trillion to the national debt, and has nothing to show for it. Do you know how difficult that is to do? Personal debt per citizen is currently about 50 grand, but at least you got a La-Z-Boy recliner and a gas-fired barbecue out of it. Obama has spent America's future, and left no more trace than if he and his high school "choom gang" had wheeled a barrow of five trillion in large notes behind the gym and used them for rolling paper. Right now, combined total debt in the United States is just shy of $700,000 per family. Add in the so-called "unfunded liabilities" that a normal American business would have to include in its SEC filings but from which U.S. Government accounting conveniently absolves itself, and you're talking about a debt burden per family of about a million bucks. In other words, look around you: the paved roads, the landscaped shopping mall, the Starbucks and the juice bar and the mountain bike store. ... There's nothing holding the joint up.

What's more confusing than Barack Obama's family with all the various half-siblings and other relatives sired by his polygamous father and grandfather? What we really need to sort it out is a reality TV show:
With the Dunham-Hawaiian/Obama-Kenyan/Soetoro-Indonesian family tree, over the past few years it's become hard to keep track of all the president's Kenyan paternal cousins, step-grandmothers, half-brothers, half-sisters, aunts, and uncles.
To remedy that confusion, America may be willing to explore the exotic and agree to overlook molestation, DWIs, and illegal status for a couple of months, invite the Obama clan to a huge mansion in the style of the Bachelor Pad, and before the 2012 election really get to know what ancestral dysfunction shapes Barack's behavior.
The premise of the "Yes We Kenya Clan" reality show would be to see which family members can ingratiate themselves to the president to the point where he actually acknowledges that they're blood relatives.
Whoever survives for the duration will get to move out of his or her respective housing project, be granted amnesty, or be excused from jail time or probation.
On the finale, the president, under duress, will "share the wealth" by either inviting the winner to the White House for Thanksgiving, pulling some strings with the INS or British law enforcement, or volunteering to finance their living expenses by doubling his/her income from $1 to $2 per month.
Let's face it: for a president supposedly so concerned with fairness, there is a glaring inequity when it comes to relatives. Heck, Marian Robinson lives in the White House, eats kale from the organic garden, and globe-trots with daughter Michelle on the taxpayers' dime. Yet Barry's Aunt Janie hasn't even attended a backyard BBQ or slept over once in the Lincoln bedroom.
Come on, Barry! Man up for your father's family. After all, it is Father's Day. Still, I wouldn't let Uncle Samson be alone with the kids.
Today Michelle Obama is visiting her brother Craig Robinson, the basketball coach at Oregon State University again. Oh sorry, the nominal reason for her visit is to give the keynote address at the OSU graduation so that the taxpayers will pick up the tab for the family get together. After all, who wouldn't want to chip in for Michelle to see her newest nephew? Besides, Barack probably complained about the nominal airfare they had to pay on her secret visit to Craig last year. Hey, times are tough when you have a high maintenance wife.
By the way, I know these two beauties are hard to tell apart, but Craig is the one without the wig and makeup.

Auntie Zeituni has written a book. It’s called “Tears of Abuse,” on account of how tough she’s had it.
Have I read it? Of course not. Have you read her nephew’s best-seller — Dreams from My Ghostwriter, I mean Father? No one has — it’s sold millions of copies, but until two weeks ago, not a single reader got far enough into it to learn that Obama was a dog-eater with “composite” girlfriends.
Anyway, I have the press release on “Tears of Abuse,” which describes Auntie Zeituni’s journey to the United States “where she faces the unthinkable; failing health and quarantined in a hospital while on vacation in a foreign country.”
Vacation? Surely she meant to say “welfare.”
“As her story unfolds she becomes a resident of (a) homeless shelter and a subject of deportation.”
How dare they! Just because she’s an illegal alien, they want to deport her.
Auntie Zeituni was victimized in Kenya but, believe it or not, “she was later victimized in the U.S.”
Talk about victimization — do you realize, you actually have to go down to the welfare office to apply for the dole? The welfare office doesn’t make house calls. Not yet anyway. Her nephew hasn’t been re-elected.
But Auntie Zeituni’s story has a happy ending.
“ ‘Tears of Abuse’ reveals how this remarkable woman turns the unfathomable into triumph.”
Public housing, on the dole — what else would you call it but a triumph?
I wonder if Zeituni got Bill Ayres to ghost write? Anyhow, while it hasn't made Amazon you can get this amazing tome by sending Zeituni $19.99 at her Web site.
While you are there, check out the photos of the gala book launch in Cleveland for lots of unintentional humor. Hey, do you think if we gave Zeituni enough money she would just go home where she belongs? Nah, the USA is the promised land for the Obama clan and they're all living large on the backs of the real citizens and taxpayers.
There is nothing left of the claim that Elizabeth Warren is 1/32 Cherokee. The documentary sources have been debunked, and the genealogist and genealogical society which originated the story and upon whom the Warren campaign relies are not talking.
It’s now time for the media to stop spreading fiction.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the latter. As for Fauxcohantas herself, it turns out that Liz Warren was a Native American diversity poster girl at the University of Pennsylvania as well as Harvard.
The only person I know who is better off today than he was four years ago is President Obama.
He's making more money, living in a bigger house and playing more golf. And when his wife goes on a shopping spree with her girlfriends, it's to Spain on the taxpayer's dime.
If you asked President Obama if he's better off today, he'd say, "Hell, yeah! And we don't want it to stop!"

We all had our suspicions. The rumors, the effeminate gestures, the kids that look like Jeremiah Wright.
Yes, inside Barack Obama was a woman trying to get out.
So Barack called together his crack team of advisors who made the political calculations:
Given the fact that Obama is the gayest straight man ever to hold the office of the president, I fail to see what the problem is in his coming out of the closet on a rocket.
Oh, wait, can it be that African-American church ladies and gentlemen do not support the idea of homosexual marriage? Why would Obama care? Those groups are doomed to vote for him no matter what. In addition, those groups do not, as groups, have a lot of money after years of record Obama-induced African-American unemployment. In contrast the amount of money gay groups are expected to pony up for his campaign coffers is, in Hollywood alone, gigantic. When has money not trumped spirituality in Obama's career? Short answer, never.
And the result:
Obama's only worry now is what his Imam will say.

While the US press was getting tingles from Barack Obama once again demonstrating his lack of knowledge of US law at the North American Summit, the real story was how Obama's "smart diplomacy" has managed to alienate our neighbors to the north and south:
Most summits are mush-mouthed affairs full of pleasantries. Tuesday's "Three Amigos" summit was different: a litany of how President Obama has alienated our neighbors.
You wouldn't know this from reading the mainstream media, ...
Fortunately, the Canadian and Mexican press told the real story. Canada's National Post quoted former Canadian diplomat Colin Robertson as saying the North American Free Trade Agreement and the three-nation alliance it has fostered since 1994 have been so neglected they're "on life support."
The Winnipeg Free Press reported that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper warned Obama the U.S. will have to pay market prices for its Canadian oil after Obama's de facto veto of the Keystone XL pipeline. Canada is preparing to sell its oil to China.
Until now, NAFTA had shielded the U.S. from having to pay global prices for Canadian oil. That's about to change.
In addition to stiffing the Canadians on the Keystone XL pipeline, Obammy is also personally blackballing them from joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade group. As for Mexico:
Things were even worse, if you read the Mexican press accounts of the meeting.
Excelsior of Mexico City reported that President Felipe Calderon bitterly brought up Operation Fast and Furious, a U.S. government operation that permitted Mexican drug cartels to smuggle thousands of weapons into drug-war-torn Mexico. This blunder has wrought mayhem on Mexico and cost thousands of lives.
The mainstream U.S. press has kept those questions out of the official press conferences, while Obama has feigned ignorance to the Mexicans and hasn't even apologized.
Hell, Obama hasn't even apologized to families of US Border Patrol agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata who were killed with weapons whose smuggling was arranged by Eric Holder's "Justice" Department. And the punchline is:
In short, the summit was a diplomatic disaster for the U.S. and its relations with its neighbors north and south.
But don't worry folks, you won't be bothered by this kind of stuff in the mainstream media.

In the letter, the channel’s founders, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, wrote on Friday: “We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before. Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”
Too nuts for MSNBC and too nuts for Current TV. Maybe Radio Havana has an opening?
As for Current TV, they are replacing the fruitcake with Eliot Spitzer. I believe the industry term for that is "doubling down on fail".

What do you call a woman who wants to be paid to have sex?
What do you call a homely professional "reproductive rights activist" who claims to needs $3,000 for contraception?
For all the haters out there, just change woman to man in the first two and all three are still funny. Of course the big question is: if we pay for Sandra Fluke's birth control, do we have to pay for flowers and a dinner too? Or more?

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.
COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment roles, that would count as less unemployment?
ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work?
ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That's how you get to 9%. Otherwise it would be 16%. You don't want to read about 16% unemployment do ya?
COSTELLO: That would be frightening.
COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means they're two ways to bring down the unemployment number?
ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
OSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?
COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist.
COSTELLO: I don't even know what the **** I just said!
Hey, to the Food Stamp President, welfare is just like having a job. Good thing Abbott did not also mention the record surge in part-time workers that are counted as employed or Costello would have been really confused.

Barry "Boy Blunder" Obama asked Congress today to raise the USA's debt limit because he has maxed out his credit card again and has so much more spending to do. Maybe Michelle needs another vacation or fancy Halloween party complete with butterfly dancers in globes. For some more black humor, watch the folks at http://debtlimitusa.org/ show what it would be like if the rest of us could spend like the Obama regime:

In recent months the Bureau of Labor Statistics has been running a hustle by not counting increasing numbers of workers which results in the widely publicized unemployment rate U3 dropping. It provides fodder for the well-coiffed lapdogs in the Lamestream Media to sing the praises of emperor Obama, but the sad truth is something else - Real Jobless Rate Is 11.4% With Realistic Labor Force Participation Rate
One does not need to be a rocket scientist to grasp the fudging the BLS has been doing every month for years now in order to bring the unemployment rate lower: the BLS constantly lowers the labor force participation rate as more and more people "drop out" of the labor force for one reason or another.
[See the charts and details at the link]
It won't surprise anyone that as of December, the real implied unemployment rate was 11.4% (final chart) - basically where it has been ever since 2009 - and at 2.9% delta to reported, represents the widest divergence to reported data since the early 1980s. And because we know this will be the next question, extending this lunacy, America will officially have no unemployed, when the Labor Force Participation rate hits 58.5%, which should be just before the presidential election.
The Obama plan is to put more unemployed workers on welfare so they don't count as unemployed anymore. Makes sense to him at least.
