Submission + - Does anybody believe that.. ( 1

It would seem that he's been dead since 2001, So is it propaganda? How about the "spontaneous" demonstrations outside the White House, rather like the Soviet era "spontaneous" demonstrations that used to crop up as punctuating important propaganda events.

“What we have is a falling participation rate, that is the number of people working compared to the number of adult citizens in the population as a whole,” he explained. “What I remain concerned about is that the reason the unemployment rate is coming down is because people are giving up and leaving the work force.

"Dell Knew About Computer Failures

CrossChris writes " Freedom of information' has revealed details of a lawsuit against Dell where they admit that they knew about a high failure rate of their products, but hid it from their corporate customers! From the article: '...Dell apparently encouraged its salespeople and technicians to not let customers know about known defects, and said internally that most customers (those who had not bought more than 50 machines) would be subject to "fix on fail"—that is, the company would only help them when their machines broke down. An internal presentation on the Optiplex GX and SX270 acknowledges that the company had discovered "quality issues," but that employees should not proactively bring them to customers' attention.'" "
