´Bullish´ November Data
Mask An Ugly Truth About Jobs

Investors Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/8/2012 6:05:06 AM

Economy: A rip-roarer for job creation and a major drop in the unemployment rate. At least, that´s how the mainstream media sum up November´s job numbers. But scratch the data and a different story surfaces. A lot of pundits thought the November jobs data were pretty good, with 146,000 new jobs and a drop in unemployment to 7.7%. But look closer, and you see recession mode. With nonfarm payrolls swelling by 146,000 and the jobless rate easing from 7.9% to 7.7%, November looked pretty good to many pundits. But the underlying trends aren´t so favorable,

Nobody´s asking if the job situation is so rosy in this country,why does Obama need another stimulus and unemployment extensions?

We live in fictitious times with a fictitious president and media. This fictitious establishment takes dreadful U-6 numbers and magically turns them into a "rip-roarer" of job creation. The dumb electorate believes all the fictitious things that their president and his fictitious advisors tell them. My view is that the only ones who suffer from this state of affairs are the dolts who believe it and vote for it. Let them have their useful fictions for the next four years.

Com´on -- who believes the MSM?

During Roosevelt and Kennedy the MSM covered up their "lies"..... So what´s new with the MSM today? Nothing....

The most important result of these years is -- WE have the internet and can easily find the truth....

AND -- let´s kick in "common sense"..... It´s Christmas time and part/time jobs are a dime a dozen. Sandy´s construction workers added to this -- but -- there isn´t one friend of mind here in the Heartland that believes the story line. Why -- in Park Ridge -- (where PIAPS grew up) the total population is 37,000. Now multiple that by four and that´s how many jobs were created ------ country wide WE´re talking about....

Com´on -- give it a rest....

It´s fairly easy to visualize a company releasing employees earning salaries of $100,000 .... and hiring ´new´ employees to fill those same slots at $60,000.
.... I would also be interested in knowing how many of these wondrous 146,000 new jobs are in the retail market, where extra help in always hired at Christmastime.

It´s not that I don´t trust employment-growth reports which come from the Obama administration. s/o

Mike "Mish" Shedlock details the fraudulent numbers with graphs made by ZeroHedge using BLS data. Upshot-more part time jobs added, less hours per week per worker and of course, another rise in out of labor force drop off´s. The BLS U-6 unemployment rate ROSE to 14.4%. The part time and lower hours nonsense is the new reporting standard that will be used to fool the majority of voters, most of whom are unemployed and on the gummint sugar paps, work for unions or work in state and federal gov´t jobs, all lovers of communism we now know.

The labor force to population rate is as low now as in 2009, the recession´s depth. More ominously, the labor force´s government component has increased greatly, and the private sector has shrunk precipitously, so that a smaller private sector must bear the burdens. After 4 years, Obama has not thought that the deficit might be addressed by putting Americans back to work rather than demonizing and robbing the successful.

"We have nothing to fear but fear itself."
The fear that the Republicans in Congress will cave because of their fear of ´bad press´ blaming them for going over the cliff. They are just postponing the fall and the drop gets steaper every time. Stand up to the fear because the press will crucify the right no matter how obvious it is that the left´s freebies drove us there. obama is the president and it is ultimately HIS FAULT ! The republicans just keep giving in and it´s gotten us nowhere but back to the same place . Stop dealing with the liar and cheater in cheif ! The cliff will just point out how many lies like the jobless rate the press have told.

Perhaps most distressing is how so many people refuse to use critical thinking skills when data like this is reported. The Christian radio station we were listening to yesterday cheerfully reported ´a big drop in unemployment´ just in time for Christmas.
No thought given about all the people who have dropped out of the labor force, or who are simply working part time retail jobs through the holidays.

Sadly, the majority of Americans don´t know that Lucianne, Investor´s Daily, American Thinker, National Review, or other non-network news outlets exist; they rely on sound bites for information, if they seek it at all. They believe what they want to believe: that Barack Obama is a good American who loves America; that we are not on the brink of financial collapse, and that the government can keep spending like a house on fire to give them what they don´t want to work for. The man in the White House is an unmitigated disaster, but even he is not our worst problem. Wake up, people! All of us are going to pay for this. All of us. We might as well grow up together, starting now. Let´s get to work America!

Just so long as America can be fooled into thinking things are getting better, they are better. Sort of liberal PC statistics. The Baby Boomer approach to the world´s problems: Rename something and the problem is solved: Jigger the statistics and the economy is booming. Objective reality is passe. Fantasy is what will keep us going, right?

BLS revised Sept new jobs numbers down 16,000 and Oct numbers down 33,000. These got shifted to Nov giving a 49,000 job boost in hiring. Presumably, they save the real lost jobs until just after the financial cliff in order to beat the GOP with the numbers.

Any one paying attention for the past four years know that the Labor Department under the leadership of the hack and tax cheat Hilda Solis has cooked the books on unemployment in order to hide the disaster that this regime has been to the economy.
When one considers that the average income of the non workers in our nation is $160+ per houshold per day,with no income or payroll taxes, it is easy to see why people drop out of the labor force and vote early and often for their Messiah.

The Media is lying to us.

They let Washington dictate the "facts"
When they don´t ad up, it´s Bush´s fault.

73% of new jobs were government. (get ready for mor taxes)

21% of small businesses will be cutting jobs. (get ready for more government hiring to cover that up)

24 million Americans who want jobs don´t have them, driving the labor force participation rate to 63.6%, just above August´s 31-year low of 63.5%.

This is the worst labor market in a recovery ever!

And the MSM refuses to tell America the truth!

Lookee here! In 1937 FDR was furious that the economy was getting better, and businesses were sitting on the side-lines not hiring. Sitting on cash.
so hegot passed a surcharge on income to punish the corps laying off and not hiring.
Don´t you think that in 2013 all the corps laying off will get the same surcharge?

Right on # 8. He communicates like he would be better suited to be a mortician. I read an AP article regarding the unemployment rate reduction and the piddly number of added jobs as being "solid" and not mentioning one word regarding the 350,000 who left the labor force. One of the strategic errors the Republicans commited during the campaign is that they did not hammer on how the unemploymnent rate is affected by the number of people who gave up and left the labor market. But then again this is only one of a mirad of errors that cost us the election.

Bobby Vee braves Alzheimer´s

ST. JOSEPH, Minn. - Bobby Vee still has the infectious smile, bright eyes and boyish good looks of his 1960s pop idol days, when he scored such hits as "Take Good Care of My Baby," ´´Rubber Ball" and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes." Alzheimer´s disease forced Vee to stop performing in 2011, but the 70-year-old Vee - who helped a young Bob Dylan get his start - is now releasing what may be the capstone to his career. "The Adobe Sessions" is a loose jam session recorded with his family. It features some of Vee´s favorite songs from Townes Van Zandt,

There are many horrific stories to be told about the implosion of Detroit, once the nation’s most prosperous city, today its poorest.

The most horrific story may be that of the death of its children.

In the run-up to Super Bowl XLVIII (just be happy they don´t use Egyptian numerals), the New York City Police Department is deploying an "amazing arsenal of security initiatives," including 200 "temporary" surveillance cameras to ensure that dirty deeds remain undone at the big game. That´s remarkable, since City Hall in the rotten apple is actually about 11 miles from the site of the kickoff at MetLife Stadium, which is in East Rutherford, New Jersey. But never fear, security at the the Super Bowl itself promises to make attendance at football´s championship game an awful lot like spending several hours

Charlie Crist’s new book, lazily titled The Party’s Over, is a cause for both anger and sadness. Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who is now running for the same office as a Democrat, has written—or rather has co-written, with Newsday columnist and Fox News liberal Ellis Henican—a dishonest and boring memoir. But by the end of this slim volume, a self-justifying account of why Crist switched parties, pathos overwhelms the sheer awfulness of the book. Crist is such a political hack, and so unable to talk or sound like a normal human being, that he actually provides a

FREDERICK, Md. — Roscoe Bartlett was rattling off the prices of giant bags of rice, wheat and corn, sold cheaply at Sam´s Club. The former congressman from rural, western Maryland expressed bewilderment that every American doesn´t stockpile such things, considering what he is sure is coming. "Storing enough calories isn´t really a challenge," said the rugged 87-year-old Republican, who served 10 terms on Capitol Hill. "The real challenge is vitamins and stuff."

Of all the names Wendy Davis has been called, the “D” word could be the most damaging. It all started when, at the event where her daughter cried for her on stage, Davis was handed former Gov. Ann Richard’s shotgun, which she held somewhat awkwardly on stage. I don’t claim any expertise on how to hold a shotgun, but it made me uncomfortable seeing the barrel pointing at people, even if the gun was just in the loading position. If I remember nothing else from my NRA safety course, it’s never point a barrel at anyone even if you think the gun

When you analyze the public response to the State of the Union and the latest polling data, it’s clear that the President has lost a tremendous amount of credibility with the American public. I scarcely think he cares at this point. A tired, graying Barack Obama stood before Congress this week as a political figure, party leader, and progressive activist to make sure the Members understood one thing – he doesn’t need them. In fact, he hasn’t needed them in quite some time. After all, in his mind, it’s his government. True, the speech wasn’t as “in your face” as

Mr. President, Republicans are calling your bluff. During last Tuesday’s State of the Union, President Obama responded to the GOP’s attempts to repeal ObamaCare this way: “If you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people, increase choice, tell America what you’d do differently,” he said. “We all owe it to the American people to say what we’re for, not just what we’re against.” Challenge accepted. Last week, three GOP senators — North Carolina’s Richard Burr, Oklahoma’s Tom Coburn and Utah’s Orrin Hatch — introduced a new proposal that would do far more than repeal ObamaCare and return us to what we

Allen’s defenders correctly note that he denies the allegations, has never been convicted and should be presumed innocent. People weighed in on all sides, but one person who hasn’t been heard out is Dylan Farrow, 28, the writer and artist whom Allen was accused of molesting.

At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

An anonymous establishment operative told left-wing BuzzFeed that the 2016 GOP field, which is considered as strong as 2012´s was weak, has "gotten so bad" from the establishment´s point of view that donors are "looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012." “You know what a lot of them say to me? I think we need Mitt back," the anonymous source told the liberal outlet. A recent poll of 2016 presidential primary voters

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is getting some time in front of the cameras before sitting down to watch the Super Bowl. He´s doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O´Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show. The interview comes less than a week after Obama´s State of the Union address, in which he pledged to act to help the middle class if Congress won´t. Obama declined during a recent CNN interview to choose between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks in the title game, saying he didn´t want to offend either city. The White House

It is the question that has been dominating Washington dinner parties for weeks – could the once-golden First Couple of the United States really be heading for the rocks? If rumours are to be believed, the 21-year marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama has been racked by screaming rows, allegations of infidelity and a string of jealous fights. While the White House has refused to comment on the reports there has been a distinct frostiness in the air between the couple in recent months. According to a report in the National Enquirer--which plastered ‘Obama Divorce Bombshell!’ across its front page--the

I announced this past week that I will be retiring after having the honor of serving my Los Angeles constituents in Congress for 40 years. Immediately, speculation began that I am leaving because I am frustrated with a broken institution. But the exact opposite is true: I am leaving Congress with my conviction intact that the legislative branch can be a powerful force for good. Of course there are aspects of the current Congress that I abhor. This past week, every Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee, where I have served most of my career, voted to limitthe Environmental Protection

World peace? No problem for Tim Tebow. Turns out the Patriots did themselves and Tebow a huge favor by releasing him from his contract before the season. Tebow has cashed in on his #NoContract status with a pair of 30-second commercials for T-Mobile set to air during the Super Bowl. If this one is any indication, the rest of the field will be fighting for second place in the "Best in Show" category. The ad is both creative, funny and incredibly well-produced. Enjoy this slice of Super Bowl ad heaven and God bless.

At a recent forum at the University of Michigan, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry explained to her audience that white people will never understand why things are racist, because they lack an innate “racial trigger,” that instantly tells them when to be outraged. Harris-Perry, on the other hand, has a very finely-tuned racial trigger. “I know that this moment is racist because it trips my racial trigger, because it makes me feel nauseous,” she said, according to The Michigan Daily. “I’m not generally angry, but you just made me mad.” While lamenting that her ‘white allies’ would never be fully able to understand

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin issued a backhanded compliment to Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan on Friday, commending her most recent column while at the same time faulting her for taking so long to come around. "Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..." Palin was presumably referring to Noonan´s

Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters, one of the more prominent celebrity faces of the boycott Israel movement, says he has contacted Scarlett Johansson “a couple of times” over the A-list actress’s decision to represent an Israeli company that operates in a West Bank settlement ... “In the past days I have written privately to Neil Young (once) and to Scarlett Johanson (a couple of times). Those letters will remain private,” he said. “Sadly, I have received no reply from either ..."
