How does saying the misery index the worst on 40 years make sense? Wasn’t it worse in 1979, than it was in 1973?
And yet still, up and down the board, they vote for rats. One just got a landslide in Virginia for the state senate.
I don’t think there are conditions bad enough to turn these people against the communist Democrat party.
It would actually have to be the Night of the Long Knives where the commies start killing the socialists before they woke up and smelt the roses.
Wall Street advisor: Actual unemployment is 37.2%, ‘misery index’ worst in 40 years
If people only knew.
Most on here do know. It’s the media that keeps it from the clueless.
I wonder what part of that figure includes people living on disability payments - which dwarf welfare payments in terms of national expenditures - and what portion consists of people who could literally go to the unemployment office, find a job within one day, but choose not to because they have gotten comfortable with what they are collecting and possibly are holding out for a job they think they deserve because of their liberal arts degree.
They do know. They're just confused as heck, because the administration and the media are blowing sunshine up their butts day and night.
People see all of the happy crap in the media and think they're alone in their plight. They don't see how widespread the pain and suffering really is, because it's intentionally being covered up.
Obama would have lost in a landslide if the pathetic GOP-e had pounded the real truth home during the primary and the election. Despite our having one of the worst candidates in living memory.
Now, now. This right-wing conspiracy is really getting out of hand.
If you note these inconvenient facts, you are an OBVIOUS racist that just hates the idea of a black man as President. My TV said so....
Obama *IS* a transformational president.
He has taken OWS and other slimy economic voyeurs and turned them into Gordon Gekkos. They think the biggest artificial DJIA bubble in the history of the universe is a great and wonderful thing and that high stock indices = good economy.
Apparently they drive through different cities and states as the rest of us, as I tend to notice the unending string of ‘for lease’ signs out on office buildings and parks, entire indoor and strip malls left derelict, and longstanding restaurants, merchants etc. closing down, often complaining about taxes and this or that meddlesome city ordinance that does nothing to improve the quality of life but merely takes their focus away from serving customers and places it on absolute obedience to bureaucrats.
“If people only knew.”
They know, they are living it. Now our job as always is to spread the news and educate them as to the reason why. If the commie queer boy king was painted as to who he really is there would be revolution in the streets.
When they say people who are seeking employment, they mean people who are registered at state and federal human resource agencies. Everyone knows what a waste of time that is.
Numbers like this are getting close to "uprising" territory - probably why the regime is so pro gun control.
The people do know how hard it is to find a good paying job.
Nothing that MADE IN THE USA won’t cure.
These two men can expect calls from the Secretary of the Treasury (Standard & Poor) and visits from the IRS asking questions about their previously approved tax returns for the last decade or so.
And don’t even think about how they and their families will be ostracized!
How dare they tell the true and use real numbers!! Ain’t we governed by feelings any more?
AND add to the unemployment rate all the other things stealing US jobs and stealing taxpayer dollars:
Add to the jobs losses the 20% of Americans on Food Stamps:
I find 37% to be hard to believe. I certainly don’t believe the government’s 7% number.
But shadow stats.com has unemployment near 24%.
