The onlybthing Obama has successfully done is ensure that it will be a long time before another black president is elected and I happen to think Allen West would have made a good president. At least he would have been honest (as a politician be).
7.8 % don’t jive as long as the 47 % is high...
U6 data, NOT the cooked/fried/boiled U3 numbers, MUST be used. The corrupty, criminal BLS gets away with too much to benefit the marxist-POS-liar-traitor-in-chief.
Yes. There's A Recovery Underway 0.67%
No. Someone's "Cooking The Books" 99.33%
No, no, y’all got it all wrong. These numbers are correct. President Obama’s plan is starting to work, it is just that these new jobs and the people employed are invisible. Why, last month this country added 125,000 new jobs in pixie dust manufacturing, 135,000 in the transportation of unicorns, and thanks to Obamacare tooth fairies are now required to harvest organs along with correcting teeth.
When Romney secures the Presidency, a top prioity is to make heads roll at the BLS.
Shades of Saturn 3.The administration will start distributing photos of an American astronaut landing on Mars except they are really photoshopped photos of a guy meandering in a Louisiana marsh.Much like coming up with a a healthy dip in the unemployment rate while simultaneously posting dismal job numbers in this last report.
[...the government threw half a million more people out of the job market will be ignored...]
Exactly, they have effectively been tagged as non-persons, they no longer exist.
The focus on unemployment rates is misdirected energy. Because “benefits collection” has become an alternative lifestyle, “unemployment rates” based on who chooses to seek a job have vastly reduced relevance.
What matters is how many people are employed divided by the total population they are supporting. Somehow we have to force the government and media to report the total number of full time workers, part time workers, self-employed, and the military against the actual population. This would reveal a “carry rate” that could be compared over time. “How many people does each actual worker carry?” is the real question.
If Obama loses the next debate we might have 5% unemployment by the election...
