Civics 101: Democracy Or Republic? And Why Care?

Checking the Numbers: Unemployment Rate & Labor Force Participation

(NOTE: This began as a discussion with a friend re: the politics of unemployment and workforce participation. But it got so in-depth, that I decided to share it as a note. FOX and other Right-Wing spinners continue to share a number of cherry-picked statistics and half truths. Here is a more realistic look at these numbers.)
