  1. I would like to know how many USA citizens were employed @ the end of each year beginning with 2008 thru 2011

    Thank You

  2. I would like a history of USA citizens employed, non-government, for each year 2004 through 2012.

  3. Here is your answer.. and its not good.

    The number of people employed in 2004 is 138 million 2008 is 146 million and today its 143 million.

    Yet the population has grown from 08 to 13 by 10 million from 306 million to 316 million.. so we have 10 million more people and 3 million less working.. that is a lot of mouths to feed with fewer people.. yet the stock market has gone up? All the government stimulus is going to feed the stock market..which is how the Government funds the Government retirement.. so the Feds are selectively pumping money into the market to drive stock fund government workers.. while the rest will pay thru inflation. So its a forced taxation thru inflation.

    • Stop pointing that out, it’s a secret! let the sheep think everything is great, the slaughterhouse is just down the road. right next to that can the gov’t has been kicking for 10 years
