The problem with looking at the number of jobs added is that you have to consider population growth.

The US population grew by about 3 million people from 2015 to 2016, which comes out to about 250,000/month. Adding only 180,000 jobs per month when your population grows by 250,000 people per month is not exactly sustainable.

The Prime Minister said "This was not a particularly clever attack or some great international assault on the census, this was a series of common or garden, utterly predictable, utterly foreseeable denial of service attacks."

After a decade of fear mongering by US politicians who want to relate every goddamn thing that happens online to a terrorist attack, that is such a refreshingly honest statement that I find myself envying Australia.

The article says:
"An August study by the Washington Post found 31 credible cases of impersonation fraud out of more than 1 billion votes cast in elections from 2000 to 2014."

But you linked it with the phrase "Fraud doesn't exist"

Seems like you don't understand the difference between "doesn't exist" and "isn't happening on a large enough scale to influence elections"

Do you also love it when retarded right lies about their political opponents? Like when Trump spread a hoax news site's fake story about a protester was paid $3,500 as if it were fact and thousands upon thousands of Trump supporters repeated that story for the rest of the election?

Of course one bit difference is that the retard was Trump, not some semi-anonymous rando from the internet, which makes it just a little less lovable.

"The world's seventh-biggest gold producer has lost more than nine drones because of eagle attacks."

So... ten drones, then?

Actually, no. It's more retarded than that. In this case, "more than nine" means exactly nine:
One crashed as a result of human error, while nine have been taken down by wedge-tailed eagles
