200,000,000 is a lot of people to feed......

and more people are losing jobs everyday as technology drives efficiency and our leveraged system goes bankrupt......

plus we have a annual Federal Government deficit of OVER $1.5 Trillion dollars...enough to pay 50,000,000 families $30K per year.

If you only bail out the banks and not the people....eventually the people MUST revolt in the current system simply to survive.......

It is never a question whether Alstry has been right all along....simply a matter of time when the system would collapse......

Welcome to the www.udderworld.com

It is getting very close to the time where you must stop staring at the ticker and start caring about humanity....otherwise humanity is about to go wild.

In what universe do you exist?  Do you know how many people actually live in the USA?  (You are right about the caring about humanity part, though.)  And now this:

New claims for unemployment benefits rose less than expected last week, according to a government report on Thursday that hinted at an improvement in labor market conditions.

I would estimate the population of America around 310-320 million.

I would estimate that the government reports about 140-150 million people are employed.....

But the bottom 30-40 million really don't make a living wage......evidenced by the fact that they don't pay income taxes and the current rise in cost of living and decline in incomes.

I consider a job as something that allows you to survive.

alstry, this is by far the worst blog post you have ever written.  It is inaccurate, exaggerated, and highly opinionated.

No its not...I included children in the number.....and children must eat.

And if you factor the current deficit....the number would be MUCH higher....very much higher.

Our nation has NEVER had a deficit anywhere close to the current one that is paying people's wages.

Our nation has NEVER had as many people NOT WORKING....

Our nation has NEVER had so many people in POVERTY...

And the numbers are deteriorating rapidly.....

Now do you think this is the worst post ever?

While I agree with some of your rationale, 200,000,000 WITHOUT jobs is hyperbole intended to get attention and affect horror. Qualifying it later with a 30-40 million number of people that don't make a living wage and not even commenting that another 60 million out of that figure are less than 15 years old and cannot legally be employed or that another 40 million are over the age of 65 is extremely disingenuous.

60 million without jobs is still a pretty big number, but apparently not big enough to get a WOW reaction.

Imagine if a Nevada weatherman led his report with Earth Trapped in Rotation of Gigantic Ball of Flaming Plasma 330,000 Times its Own Mass! Temperatures at Surface Expected to Reach 4,100 Celsius!

While this is all true, it leaves out some important, sobering facts, such as that while the actual temperature on the surface of the sun is 4100 degrees Celcius, the temperature in Arizona will probably only reach 30.

It bothers me that gross exaggeration is so prevalent a method to get attention, perhaps as much as the fact that I fell prey to it as well.

At some point, we must address the systemic failure.....the passengers on the titanic did.....so did the residents of Northern Japan......

Alstry is simply right....and there is no way to change or refurte this algorithm analysis without systemically resucturing the economy.

Don't those 60,000,000 have to eat?  or should we just starve them?

My post was 200,000,000 million PEOPLE don't have jobs.....the most ever.....and that is correct if you define a job as a living wage.

And those 45,000,000 elderly....it appears you implication is to stave them too......

People are people....whether old or young....and they must eat to survive.

So, your contention is that if these 60million kids are not working they are not eating?  Charles Dickens would be proud of you!

Most of the elderly I know are retired - they eat just fine.

BTW - of your 200,000,000 people - only 12,077,000 are looking for work as of August.  I would suggest that the rest are either eating enough to survive - or should get out and look for a job...

There may not be enough jobs for everyone - but that does not excuse anyone "not surviving" from getting out and fighting for the last job.

Alstry, your main problem is that you are still unaware of you hyperbole.  You are defending the fact that you included in your 200mil unemployed people that are too young or too old to work.  At this rate, why stop there.  Why not include the dead too since being dead, they are totally helpless?  Should we let let them starve...to death?

I have to agree with the others.  If you're simply trying to argue that gov't can't support a large percentage of the population without a growing percentage of the population paying taxes, make that point clear.  Cite specific statistics...they're shocking enough.  Over 20% of working age adults, over 30 million, are unemployed or underemployed.  The fact that only 12 million of those are looking for work, per ukiahed, is pretty shocking.  Considering the fact that half of those working pay little to no income taxes is even more shocking.  About 1/6th of the population pay income taxes, while about 1/7th of the population are on food stamps.  Our annual deficit spending is  >$20K per income tax payer.  That's troubling enough without wrongly implying, even if you weren't trying to, that >60% of the population is unemployed.
