American Spring: The War Against Us

Post by Guest on Sun Dec 04, 2011 1:43 pm

Numbers Game

Now, I just want to make sure I’ve got this right.

According to them:

The unemployment rate in this country dropped magically to 8.6% this week. This, because we ‘added’ 120,000 jobs for the month of November. We have been hemorrhaging jobs in this country at a rate of over 400,000 a week for months. That is an average of 1.2 million people put out of a job each month. November’s job number would only be 10% of the number of jobs lost for the month. Now THAT is creative accounting. Additionally, the jobs they brag about are temporary holiday retail jobs. And here in Missouri, where the legislature changed the child labor laws, we might soon have to watch 12 and 13 year old children running registers on Black Friday’s to come.

If the number really did dip, it is because millions of Americans fell from the roles as their benefits ran out and they are now without incomes. Convenient, isn’t it, that they claim that as a victory?
