David Swanson: Unemployment numbers are phony numbers

The White House was in celebration mode today. This after the Labor Department declared the joblessness numbers have fallen to a three year low to 8.5 percent. Approximately 212,000 new jobs were created, but many feel that these numbers are distorted since people who have been unemployed for long periods of time and people how have part-time jobs were omitted.
