How is that anyone in their right mind, or one who has not yet had half their brain eaten away from listening to the constant leftist drivel continually spewed by those in the Democrat Party, would actually want to continue with the policies of the last eight years that have served to do nothing more than reduce America to where it is now just one rung above your average Third World country? What has happened to this country? And yet another example of how that is, is the latest round of bogus unemployment numbers that ‘Team Obummer’ released earlier today, numbers that show no improvement in the employment numbers, as if that were likely to happen.
The Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported on today that 94,391,000 Americans were not in the labor force during the month of August, which is 58,000 more than July's 94,333,000; and the labor force participation rate was stuck at 62.8 percent, just where it was in July. It was one year ago, in September 2015, that the labor force participation rate actually dropped to 62.4 percent, which was the lowest that it had been since the glory days of Jimmy Carter. Now keep in mind here, the best it has been since Barry “Almighty” first took office is the 65.8 percent and that it was in February 2009, the very month after Barry was sworn in.
In today’s report, the BLS made the claim that our anemic economy supposedly added 151,000 jobs in August, and was apparently not as much as analysts had been expecting. Although, I must admit, I have no idea what they might have been basing those expectations on. Anyway, that compares with an average monthly gain of 204,000 over the prior 12 months. But we’re told that the change in total nonfarm payroll employment for June was revised down from +292,000 to +271,000, and the change for July was revised up from +255,000 to +275,000 and that combined employment gains in June and July were 1,000 less than previously reported.
You know, I would think that by this time most intelligent people would be able to recognize the fact that our monthly unemployment numbers are little more than a very bad joke. And the August unemployment rate of 4.9 percent is no different. We’re told that the number of unemployed persons increased 79,000 to 7,849,000, while at the same time, the number of employed persons increased 97,000 to 151,614,000 in July. Meanwhile the millions of Americans who have given up entirely even looking for work, go ignored. Because if they were actually counted our unemployment rate would be closer to 20 percent, and we simply can’t have that!
And you know, I’m always so amazed when it comes to just how much weight is placed on these numbers that we all know are completely bogus. For instance, we’re told that the August numbers were being closely watched by ‘economists’ as an indication of whether the Federal Reserve might raise interest rates later this month. How stupid must these ‘economists’, as well as those in charge of the Fed, really be if they can base their decisions on numbers that have absolutely no basis in any actual fact. I mean, how frightening is that? And how can we ever hope to get this country back on track if we’re using data that is so badly skewed!
So anyway, we’re told that in August the nation’s civilian noninstitutionalized population, consisting of all people 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution, reached 253,854,000. And of that number it was 159,463,000 who participated in the labor force by either holding a job or by ‘actively seeking one’. The 159,463,000 who participated in the labor force equaled 62.8 percent of the 253,854,000 civilian noninstitutionalized population. But again absolutely no mention of those other 94 million folks is ever made. And who else but the government could ever get away with perpetrating this kind of fraudulent shit?
So, here we are in a country of 330 million people where, "for whatever reason", we have 94 million of our fellow citizens out of the workforce. You do the math, that’s NOT 5 percent unemployment. So what’s a good little Socialist to do? That’s easy, you LIE! You simply go about the manipulating of the numbers to make yourself, and your policies, look good. So what if people give up looking because they can't find jobs, just cherry pick the numbers and count only those you want to count. Over 94,000,000 Americans not working, for a country with the size, power and magnitude of the U.S. that’s truly pretty pathetic.
Come of folks, can we all just finally admit that the unemployment number we get at the end of every month have now become meaningless? When Barry took office there were approximately 77 million Americans out of the workforce. Under this administration’s war against the middle class almost 18,000,000 more Americans are out of the workforce! "Hello McFly," this is all by design! Because the Socialists and the DC Elitists are out to destroy the American middle class so that they can then replace it with their own personal, and rather sizable, voting block of people who, because they are now entirely dependent upon the government, will vote for them.
And it has been our illustrious GOP Establishment who has seen fit to march in near lock step with their fellow Democrats, with one being paid and bought off by the US Chamber of Commerce and the other by George Soros and the SEIU. And now, those of us who refuse to go quietly into the night have essentially been forced, by the many RINOs in Congress who refuse to honor the many promises they have continually made to us, to pin all our hopes on Donald Trump. And while my dear old mother has always warned me against putting all my eggs into one basket, unfortunately, I fear I have been left with no other option. TRUMP IS NOW THE ONLY ANSWER.
