Unemployment rates fall
in half of large US cities

Associated Press, by Christopher S. Rugaber

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 11/28/2012 4:47:08 PM

WASHINGTON — Unemployment rates declined last month in more than half of the 372 largest U.S. cities, further evidence of steady improvement in the job market. The Labor Department said Wednesday that rates fell in 201 metro areas. They rose in 116 and were unchanged in 55. And the number of cities with unemployment below 7 percent rose to 180 last month, up from 107 a year ago. Nationwide, the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9 percent from 7.8 percent in September. That was mostly because more Americans began searching for work but not all found jobs.

Comments:
Some needs to inform the AP that the election´s over, the spin now is just overkill.

It`s actually getting painful to read the `news` these days with all the lying that`s going on.

It seems our Big Media has gone completely pathological.

The economy sucks. When it´s good, we´re working 6, even 7 days a week, 10 or more hours per day to meet our schedules. Not only are we not doing that now, we´re looking at a 2 week layoff in December (in addition to the holidays) because business is so flat.

I repeat: the economy sucks.

Meanwhile, I couldn´t find a parking place at the FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY, Salvation Army parking lot, likewise, full, medicine, a month ago I got it and my insurance paid for it, no longer produced and replacement will not be covered by my insurance, church is begging for food and clothing for the poor, and so many for sale signs, months old, in a town I grew up in (63+years old)I have never seen the like before.

FTA: Unlike the national data, the metro unemployment rates are not adjusted for seasonal trends, such as the hiring of many part-time retail employees for the winter holidays. So they tend to be more volatile from month to month.

For those looking for the lie, they thumbed through the rule book to find a statistic where pre-Christmas hiring would not be adjusted downward.

Google Christopher S. Rugaber. You will find almost all his articles are citing "improvements", people going back to work, unemployment requests going down, the economy back moving again!

Almost all of them. Which, if he was an honest reporter, is statistically impossible.

If he is either not a reporter, he should not be writing for news services.

This is the Arse Press glorifying that the unemployment rate has gone down when we all know that thousands of people have left the job market because there are no jobs to be had.

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement. This short document outlined no specific threats, but rather a set of

Maryland health officials are investigating possible cases of food poisoning at what may be the worst-ever venue — a gathering of government and industry leaders attending a national Food Safety Summit. At least four people called the Baltimore City Health Department this week to report that they developed diarrhea, nausea and other symptoms about 12 hours after eating a meal April 9 during the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

Russia and Ukraine struck a deal Thursday to end unrest in eastern Ukraine stoked by pro-Russian militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

DENVER — Authorities say a Wyoming college student who jumped to his death from a Denver hotel balcony ate more than the recommended serving of a marijuana cookie. Police reports released Thursday said 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi consumed a little more than one cookie that his friend purchased from a pot shop. The reports say a clerk told his friends to cut it into six pieces and eat one piece at a time. The friends did so, but it´s unclear from the reports whether Pongi heard the advice.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of
Virginia GOP on Eric Cantor’s Payroll
PJ Media, by David Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/15/2014 3:11:20 PM     Post Reply
On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago police said. So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it -- and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said. This "is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!" he would later allegedly tell the cops, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
