Here is an interesting time lapse of the unemployment rates by counties from January 2007 (4.6%) thru November 2009 (9.0%) . SAD and MAD!

Riddle me this...what happened in Nov 2006 that is relevant to this fact?

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

it was the sixth anniversary of Bush's 2000 election win or the second anniversary of Bush's 2004 re-election win?

The 2006 United States midterm elections were held on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. All United States House of Representatives seats and one third of the United States Senate seats were contested in this election, as well as 36 state governorships, many state legislatures, four territorial legislatures and many state and local races. The election resulted in a sweeping victory for the Democratic Party which captured the House of Representatives, the Senate, and a majority of governorships...it saw the election of the first woman to serve as the Speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Why does the timeline begin in Jan '07? Jobs weren't being lost until late in '07 when the Bush recession began.

Nope, Freddie and Fannie had very little to do with it.

Subprime loans, credit default swaps, deregulation...

Housing prices began their decline in 2006, setting off a chain of events that would eliminate the major investment banks on Wall Street and plunge our economy into a tailspin of epic proportions.

Zippo, you don't seem very knowledgeable when it comes to finance. I suggest you check out the Subprime Primer.

Here's a hint: It's a segment of mortgage lending that Freddie and Fannie were minor players in.

The average unemployeement rate in 1980 was 7.1, by 1982 it was 9.7... who's presidency started in 1981?

So you leap to 30 years in the past?

Ok..when that president took office...the prime intrest rate was 21%(from Carter)

When he left office it was 10%

By 92" it was back down to 6%

So WTF was your point again?

Oh..you didnt have one...

If you think these sheeple are upset now, zeitgeist, wait until November. They're going to see their world collapse, and they damn well know it-no matter what they're saying now.

Air Omerica down in flames...

Globull warming scams exposed at the IPCC...

USSC tells them free speech is for EVERYONE...not just porn producers...

Ellie light astroturf exposed by the NEW media...

Add to the usual liberal stress...

Bush hasnt been executed for war crimes yet...

Rove is still breathing...

Beck is still on the air (and breathing)..

Rush is still on their air (and breathing)...

Fox news is still on the air...

The internet is still not under their thumb...

Etc etc..
