Obama's New Stimulus Jobs Reporting MORE BOGUS Than "Jobs Created"
The Lid/ABC News ^ | 1/11/10 | The Lid

Just when you thought that the Obama administration was as ridiculous as it could get with the fictitious "jobs created statistic, our change agent president thinks out of the box nay he burst through the box of "bogus" designations with his new way to report stimulus jobs, its called "Jobs Funded."

The Obama administration has taken some heat and mockery for using the bogus non-economic term of jobs being “saved or created” by the $787 billion stimulus program. Guess what, "you aint seen nothing yet"`. As Woody Allen said in Bananas It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.

In a little-noticed December 18, 2009 memo from Office of Management and Budget director Peter Orszag the Obama administration is changing the way stimulus jobs are counted.“Instead, recipients will more easily and objectively report on jobs funded with Recovery Act dollars,” Orszag wrote. In other words, if the project is being funded with stimulus dollars – even if the person worked at that company or organization before and will work the same place afterwards – that’s a stimulus job.

On the converse, if a company has received stimulus funding at one point and goes bankrupt and fires everyone, do those get counted as ‘jobs unfunded?’

There was a couple of earlier threads today about the poor quality of blogs and the frustration many of us here have with blog postings.

But Yid With A Lid is one blog that I think is worth reading.

I repeat myself when I assert that Hussein Obama is reaching what has been described as splitting psychologically—when someone as seriously ill with narcissistic personality disorder as Hussein is, finally realizes that he is no longer the object of adoration but an object of scorn, derision and laughter.

Hussein is no different than Mohammed (piss be upon him).

Both orphaned/abandoned raised by relatives, abused, and influenced by demonic personalities.

Hussein is going to go Roman on his adversaries and supporters alike, and it will not be just dirty politics, it will be murderously violent.

Believe it or not. It is coming, Hussein is reaching critical mass. He will kill without remorse or hesitation.

He is what he is.

If not prayerful, I suggest we all become prayerful persons.
