Unemployment IS NOT at a 10.2 percent rate, why do you insist on spreading lies? Oh, duh! I forgot it's because of your Bank of America corporate sponsorhip and you must do as the corporate masters tell you too so the sheeple don't panic do something about it that could possible harm their bottom line.
