    The U.S. economy added 223,000 jobs in June, and the "official" unemployment rate dropped from 5.5% to 5.3%.  But the labor force participation rate dropped to a 38-year low, and there were 60,000 fewer jobs created in April and May after adjustments.  It's absolutely amazing that four years after the supposed "recovery" began, more people have stopped looking for work than ever. The Hill: The number of people in the labor force fell by 432,000, a reason for the lower jobless rate, while 56,000 fewer people were employed, sending the participation rate down to 62.6 percent, the lowest level...

    WASHINGTON is in the midst of spending $11 billion to fulfill the Constitutional obligation to count Americans, a wonderfully quaint process I imagine worked better when this was a young country and people stayed on farms scattered about the countryside. Today, the census is a mess. People are harder to find, of course, because they are often at an office somewhere. And when they are located, they don't necessarily want to cooperate. Census workers get paid well, and are compensated for training and travel time to and from their homes. So these jobs are sought after, especially in this hard...

    Its been a bad couple of months for Al Gore and his man-made climate change "scientific consensus." Between Climategate, the phony hockey stick, The NASA climate change guru who refused to fix bogus numbers, and the big Himalayan Glacier Melt even some climate change believers are starting to wonder which data is real and what has been manipulated. Over the weekend we were informed that Dr Murari Lal, one of the UN's Climate Change gurus knew all along that the Himalayan glacier melt prediction which turned out to be 300 years off, might be bogus. But the prediction was not...

    "White House Defends Stimulus Act Despite Government Audit Questioning the Job Numbers" SNIPPET: "( - The White House defended the effectiveness of the economic stimulus act on Monday after a government audit last week called many of the reported job numbers into question. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported that $173 billion of the $787 billion stimulus package had been paid out by the federal government as of Sept. 30. Thats about 22 percent of the total, and it indicates that 78 percent of the stimulus funds have not been paid out at a time when unemployment was rising."

    Time Warner Inc.'s Time Inc. unit received a subpoena in connection with a federal investigation into circulation practices of the magazine industry, the company said. The investigation, by a federal prosecutor in New York, has been looking into the business practices of InFlight Newspapers & Magazines Inc. InFlight, which is no longer in business, bought magazines from publishers at a discount and distributed them free to airlines and other travel-related services. Magazine companies, including Time Inc., have long included magazines sold to InFlight in its "paid" circulation. Magazine publishers' use of services like InFlight has come under scrutiny, in the...
