Posted on 10/06/2012 3:32:41 PM PDT by truthandlogic
What a joke! Everyone knows the latest released numbers are crap. It is clear that the household number is based on a survey of 1/2 of 1%. The RNC or PAC should hire a polling agency to conduct their own unemployment survey, publish the numbers and expose the lies from the labor board.
Of course no media outlet would run the story, but it would be better to have true numbers out to expose the lies that are happening. Next month numbers will adjust the unemployment rate to 2% and many will believe it.
The rats are trying to take the economy out of the debate, they will claim obummer "has fixed the economy, just look at the numbers".
I think the vast majority of people believe the unemployment statistic is tabulated from an actual count of people unable to find work. The fact that it's based on a mail survey and then adjusted via a miracle equation is, unfortunately, little-known.
And, of course, though the survey, itself, is problematic, it's the miracle equation that really mucks things up.
7.8% was the only positive in an otherwise dismal employment report. Is the president cheering that 600,000 more Americans are working part time because they can't get full time employment? What does the president think of the current hiring glideslope from the business survey. With the corrections for July and August the numbers are 186,000, 144,000, and 114,000. That doesn't look like a hiring environment in a recovery.
