African-Americans in December

Cybercast News Service, by Matt Cover

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 1/4/2013 11:21:39 AM

Government unemployment numbers for December showed that while the general unemployment rate remained flat at 7.8 percent, unemployment for women and African-Americans rose despite an economy that created 155,000 jobs. Unemployment for women rose to 7.3 percent in December from 7.0 percent while the rate for African-Americans rose sharply to 14.0 percent from 13.2 percent in November. Unemployment among African Americans has remained quite high throughout the sluggish economic recovery of the past several years

Maybe they don´t want jobs. They just want stuff, you know, like the Obama-phone. Besides didn´t Barak relieve them of paying for stuff, like that lady who voted for Him so that her mortgage payment would go away...

It is much easier to have lots of kids and remain on welfare- multiple daddies are no where in sight for support. They also have an attitude problem and have had for years.

Do the math! Even if one doubles the 14% figure to account for stat errors and those who have dropped out of the labor force, Black EMPLOYMENT would stand at 72%...fair to say Zero´s economic policies have devastated Black employment, but unfair to spread the myth that we prefer a welfare check to a job in the face of our demonstrable historic work ethic...

It´s BLS BS Day!! Look at this shiny bauble dummy.

The real numbers in the report are awful. 500,000 fewer Americans working last month, 224,000 left the work force, 176,000 new workers entered the work force. But add in a little seasonal adjustment, some hocus pocus and 155,000 jobs added.

According to the report ´drinking places´ added jobs. Now that I believe.

Christie Slides, Bush Rises

Posted By: jackson- 2/5/2014 8:40:06 AM     Post Reply
The “Chris Christie for President” moment may already be over. Former allies are souring on him. His poll strength against Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical matchup has evaporated. Once-friendly media figures like Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen are mocking him, and their joint parody of “Born to Run” now has more than 4 million views on YouTube. If Christie’s appointee David Wildstein is telling the truth when he claims evidence exists that proves the governor knew about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, and if that evidence is made public, then all the “Christie in 2016” talk is moot, because

Do you think Chris Christie will be able to enjoy the Super Bowl? Everything looked so promising. The whole sports-loving world’s fixated stare upon New Jersey. Plus, not insanely cold. And then a lawyer for one of the key players in the great bridge-lane-closing scandal drops a letter suggesting there’s evidence the governor knew about what happened before he said he knew about what happened. Back to Bridgegate! This comes on the heels of the saga about a New York City congressman threatening to throw a reporter over a balcony in our nation’s Capitol. In response to which, former Congressman Anthony Weiner resurfaced

Judge rules that Kansan who provided

TOPEKA — A man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple in response to an online ad is the father of a child born to one of the women and must pay child support, a Kansas judge ruled Wednesday. Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn’t intend to be a father. Shawnee County District Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn’t involve a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process and thus Marotta didn’t qualify as a sperm donor, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

In terms of a potential presidential run, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is both hurt and helped by being out of office. Unlike current office holders, Jeb can’t hold the public attention and be credited with carrying the GOP banner in current fights with Democrats. He isn’t in the flow of the rat-tat-tat of political combat. However, that may also be to his benefit. He is not burdened by mistakes, missteps and potential scandals that befall contenders currently in office. He does not have to weigh in on every issue, nor does he have to cast any votes. And unlike

ESPN and the Houston Chronicle are reporting Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien has reached an agreement to become the new head coach for the Houston Texans. The Chronicle says the deal will be announced Wednesday or Thursday, citing two people with knowledge of the negotiations, with the deal finalized Tuesday night. O’Brien will take over a Texans team that finished 2-14 — the worst record in the NFL — and will have the No. 1 pick in May’s draft. O’Brien, 44, had a 15-9 record over his two seasons guiding the Nittany Lions, as they struggled through NCAA sanctions that limited scholarships and banned the team from bowl

Russia has asserted that it takes a morally superior world-view to the West and is seeking to resist the tide of "non-traditional values" Mr Putin, the Russian president, used his state-of-the-nation address to defend his government´s increasingly conservative values. Speaking as a worldwide protest movement grows against the Kremlin´s anti-gay stance, Mr Putin upbraided the West for treating "good and evil" equally. In his 70-minute televised speech from an ornate Kremlin hall, Mr Putin pledged to defend traditional family values, which he said were the foundation of Russia´s greatness and a bulwark against "so-called tolerance - genderless and infertile."

NEW DELHI — India´s Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned a lower court´s ruling that decriminalized gay sex, a move condemned by gay rights activists as a big step backward in their struggle for acceptance in this largely conservative country. In 2009 the Delhi High Court ruled that a 19th-century provision in the country´s penal code that prohibited people from engaging in "carnal acts against the order of nature" should not apply to consenting adults, including same-sex couples.The Supreme Court rejected that decision Wednesday, saying the old law was still constitutionally valid and could only be changed or erased through Parliament, not

George Mason’s home, Gunston Hall, just down the river from Mount Vernon, is closed on Thanksgiving Day but reopens to visitors the day after. In this season when Americans reflect upon all that we are grateful for, these stately and hallowed grounds are a good place to start. Commonly referred to as the “forgotten founder,” George Mason IV had a fair amount of contempt for politics. Especially politicians. It was a dirty, grubby affair that attracted mostly dirty, grubby people. In other words, Mason was clairvoyant.

Interior secretary says Obama may

SAN FRANCISCO — Interior Secretary Sally Jewell says she will recommend that President Obama act alone if necessary to create new national monuments and sidestep a gridlocked Congress that has failed to address dozens of public lands bills. Jewell said the logjam on Capitol Hill has created a conservation backlog, and she warned that the Obama administration would not "hold its breath forever" waiting for lawmakers to act. "The president will not hesitate," Jewell said in an interview in San Francisco last week. "I can tell you that there are places that are ripe for setting aside."

JFK White House staffers gather

Of all the events commemorating the half-century since the Kennedy assassination, Ted Kennedy Jr. said Saturday night’s reunion of John F. Kennedy’s White House staff was the one not to be missed. “I don’t want to go to Arlington Cemetery,’’ he told hostess Nancy Hogan Dutton. “What I want is to be here in your home.’’ The point of the gathering of about 100 old friends was not the death of the president but his life — and theirs when they worked for him. No matter what they went on to achieve, reaching for the moon was hard to top.

An overdue measure to outlaw employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity cleared a procedural hurdle on Monday night in the Senate. The move is one step toward putting into federal law a basic principle most Americans support: Job applicants and employees should be judged on their professional credentials and the caliber of their work, and not be held back because of who they are. The Employment Nondiscrimination Act, however, has a significant flaw — a terribly broad religious exemption

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

LONDON - Stronger winds which have cooled the surface of the Pacific Ocean could explain what is likely to be a temporary slowdown in the pace of global warming this century, researchers said.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."
