As Donald Trump himself has pointed out, the unemployment rate is an unreliable way to measure job growth. Job growth numbers are much more accurate since job growth is only one of two main factors that affect the unemployment rate, an increase of people who just give up looking for a job will also lower the unemployment rate even if there is no increase in job growth from baseline.

It's a huge stretch to suggest that the 0.7% change in the unemployment rate over a year is greater than Obama's average of 0.8% decrease per year or that it represents a significant change in the pre-existing trend, but the bigger issue is that Trump hasn't increased job growth over the baseline, which means the decrease in the unemployment rate is due to workers giving up on looking for a job, which doesn't appear consistent with what the linked articles are claiming.

I'm sure we could agree and disagree on certain points you've made.

By many measures, regardless of who you think should gets credit, the economy is doing pretty well. This is the opposite of what was predicted by just about every liberal on the face of the planet.

Speaking of small business, this is an inspiring article highlighting the contributions of recent Syrian immigrants to the restaurant scene in Toronto.

Unlike Trump, Justin Trudeau isn't afraid of folks attempting to flee a war-ravaged area in search of a better life.

I challenge anyone to look at the pictures of Syrian pastries and not be tempted to snatch one!

A nice article and story.

Do you really think Trump is afraid, or wants to put America first by ensuring that immigrants are an asset and not a burden on our country (like most other countries do).

The only thing Trump puts first is his ego and bank account.

That I have a sense of humor? You are the one that said people are "attempting to flee a war-ravaged area in search of a better life". So YOU believe living in the U.S. is a better life, not a ****hole...

If people think the U.S. is a ****hole, I invite them NOT to come. But we all know, no one really thinks that, because if they did, we wouldn't have massive amounts of influxes of people coming. I bet Haiti doesn't have people lined up their door, waiting to get in.

Go back and the read the posts. It wasn't me who said that about leaving a war torn nation.

Haiti has had more than its share of natural disasters and corrupt governments who exploited their people and their natural resources. They deserve our compassion and understanding, not vitriol from a mentally ill racist and his disciples.

You should really check the rankings for your own country in terms of infant mortality, literacy, life expectancy, infrastructure, etc. before calling someone else's country a ****hole. Take a look at the poverty and hunger in some of our own states before calling another country a ****hole.

Chobani's $1M Plan: Yogurt Company to Expand Twin Falls Facility | Southern Idaho Local News | magicvalley.com

The founder of Chobani is an immigrant from Turkey, not sure where this falls in the Trump continuum of countries. Turkey is both in Europe and Asia.

The right-wingers have attacked the owner of Chobani because he IS an immigrant (the kind you would think they would like since he started a business and is "contributing" to our country) and hires other immigrants.

They attacked him for hiring Muslims. He may be a Muslim himself, I don't know.

I started buying Chobani products (and wrote about this on another thread) when I read about the attacks. Since that time, I have purchased Chobani products multiple times a week.

I sent Chobani an e-email telling them of my support, and they sent me back a handwritten thank-you note.

You just can't please some of these right-wingers. They only like White folks.

Chobani is a true success story. They make a great product and pay folks fair wages. That is more than Walmart does!
