Posted on 10/06/2012 2:15:09 PM PDT by John Semmens
Though the number of new jobs created during the month of September was a paltry 114,000, the official unemployment rate fell from an August rate of 8.1% to 7.8%. With an estimated 120,000 entering the ranks of new job seekers each month based on population growth, the drop in the official rate of unemployment has been credited to a surge of 800,000 new part-time jobs.
This was hailed by the President's Council of Economic Advisers chairman Alan Krueger as a sign that the President's plan is working. Most people I know would prefer to work fewer, not more hours each week, Krueger recounted. The President's policies are now making this more feasible.
That fewer hours normally net fewer dollars of take-home pay was brushed aside as a temporary phenomenon. We're still working out the kinks on the President's long-term goals, Krueger argued. The lower take-home pay from fewer hours of work has been offset by an increase in the number of Americans receiving food stamps. On top of this, ten million have received free cell phones.
Krueger says a key subsequent measure awaiting a second term is the redistribution of income from high-earners to low-earners. Just because there are some people who are determined to be workaholics shouldn't deter us from implementing policies that bring the benefits of leisure to a broader spectrum of our society.
While admitting that the transformation underway has not been entirely painless, Krueger maintained that history will regard this as a critical turning point for humankindwhen the delusions of the Judeo-Christian work-ethic were finally overthrown and a new era of government-funded hedonism was born.

KRUEGER. Most people you know are SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC FRAUDS, including THE FOREIGNER. After witnessing your leaders lazy feeble attempt at the debate you can include him in those that want to work less hours.
Though this is satire I think I have cracked the new code.
Employment is now defined as your ability to secure a paycheck.
Therefore is you are receiving unemployment, that is your job.
If you are receiving welfare, that is your job.
If you are a pimp, you are self employed.
If you are disabled or retired, that is your job.
Really we have a 100% employment in this country, because everyone is getting by even if it is by digging cans and bottles out of dumpsters, that is your job.
I would have to agree that the Food Stamp President’s policies are working .... his policy of fudging the unemployment numbers for 4 years and imposing strangling regulations, without creating real jobs, is working perfectly. From the mouth of Satan and his minions, millions of high paying green jobs have been created with tax revenues soaring and people dancing in the streets singing “Happy days are here again....”.
As the obammy “media” whores shift into high gear.
redefine full time as anything over 22 hours and there ya go
There’s lies and damn lies-—Every person with common knowledge knew months ago that Al Capone Chicago politics would come into the election cycle near the end. Most politicians are effective liars but this guy is the greatest liar that ever squated over two shoe heels to expel his garbage for public consumption. Standby for more manure than a John Deere fertilizer spreader can handle on a good day as our Great Leader Dinglebarry approaches the finish line.
Someone would pay you good money to post this over at RATS underground. (It’s getting a bit stale over there...)
