Jobs: The Report, the Spin, and the Fear
Weekly Standard, by Geoffrey Norman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/8/2014 5:35:17 AM

The monthly employment numbers are out and even the New York Times is dismayed. The economy added 113,000 jobs in January, which was (all together now) unexpectedly short of the 180,000 economists were predicting. This news: ... is likely to spur fears that the labor market is poised for yet another slowdown. The White House, where they have learned to always look on the bright side, responded in upbeat fashion, calling the report: … another reminder of both the progress that has been made and the challenges that remain. Businesses have now added 8.5 million jobs over the last 47 months and the

As long as Barack Obama is President there will never be a recovery. He does not want one and will do everything in his power to make sure of that.

Couple of things about this, these added jobs are coming from the White House, does anybody believe that figure?, secondly a quick web search reveals that the jobs lost are far higher than the suspect jobs added number. After all we are talking progressives here, their not exactly know to be trustworthy using Alinsky as their bible. The ends justify the means, words for the "modern progressive" to live by.

Great. Excellent. Another 113,000 part-time low-paying jobs with no benefits, no insurance, and no future.

The line in the article that points out the sharp drop in manufacturing output says it all. I keep getting the feeling that the US economy is treading water and the sharks are circling around us in anticipation of something big. Might this be why the pubbies and dimmies in congress want to look the same now so harder to blame one party over the other.

113,000 is the original number. I´m waiting for the revised (true)number because with these yahoos, there is ALWAYS a revised (and much lower)number. It is released after the public is not paying attention.

I´m still trying to figure, with a larger population and less people working than six years ago, how unemployment can be down! I never was particularly good at math, but geez! Reminds me of a private school administrator who told me they got around the state requirement for number of school days by "creative accounting". Every other school had to make up snow days. Obie must have hired her for the labor department.

Being unemployed means:
Now you´re able to tuck your kids in at night.
Unemployment sets you free to pursue your dreams.
Less work is good news!
You now have the choice of being unemployed.
We have set you free from work.
You can pursue your hobbies.
If you want to be creative you can leave your work, pursue your passions, you don´t have to be job-locked anymore.

So people, we need to ask ourselves, if such a government will gladly tell you and stick to such preposterous dishonesty at every turn, where will they stop? What won´t they do? What are the limits to such unscrupulous, crooked liars?
Welcome to the new Communism of unnecessary, over-reaching, over-bearing, high-handed, job-killing, autocratic regulation, deceit, deception and disinformation where none of us on our own is as dumb as all of us combined!

Meanwhile back in the southwest, houses are springing up all around in our area west of Albuquerque, NM. We wonder where these people are getting the dough to purchase new $150k-250k homes and we are financially strapped - my wife, who was victim of a downsizing 3 years ago, can´t seem to find anything outside a filling station overnight attendant job. Where do all these people work?

Here´s my take for #8´s math issue - 3 workers at 40 hours per week equals 120 hours, you you change that to 4 workers at 30 hours per week (due to zerocare) and that equals the same 120 hours. Easy, you just added 1 job.

For #11 - if you look at the loss of population in the high tax states you can see where the new home buyers are coming from. You can sell a bungalow in a NY City suburb and afford a mansion in the south. The problem with their move is that they bring their politics with them. Just wondering about that filling station overnight attendant job, did they require a college degree of some kind like most new listings do now?

I have personally known people that moved out to the country (because they love the country) only to complain about the smells from the farm down the road. The only thing they found wrong with the county life is was that it wasn´t like the suburbs. Oh yeah, and all the hicks that live there and plus, it´s farther to drive to get anywhere. And they should build more stores and maybe a theater complex since there´s so much room, and ...

Norman is far too kind to the Obama White House. They are not being cheerfully optimistic, they are shooting out propaganda at the pace of an active volcano. There isn´t now and never has been a "recovery" to the democrat-caused depression and housing market crash, some months just suck less than others. Unemployment real numbers have been in the 20-30 percent range since 2008 and I dare them to refute that. Many who are still working have lost a lot of ground in pay and benefits. The international company that I work for, which just happens to be in a relatively hot market, just laid off all temporary workers in December. Retiring workers are not being replaced. Something´s up and it´s not the job numbers.

Imagine if it can be coordinated so that everyone, who could afford to, suddenly stopped working for a week, simultaneously. Businesses would have to slow or stop, spending & revenues would decline, tax revenues would slow drastically, the list goes on. It would THEN become obvious (duh!) that if everyone stayed home, the country would grind to a halt. As such, it is the WORKING persons who keep America going, NOT the scheming politicians and tyrannical leaders who bleed the productive Americans while they PANDER to the leeches "riding in the cart" instead of those PULLING IT. Attention "Cart Pullers": voice your opinion of how you are being screwed-over, by casting your vote to "Throw the BUMS Out" and to demand that everyone pull their own weight. If you let the goldbrickers out-vote you, then bend over again!

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

   

 



 
Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 5:35:01 AM     Post Reply
A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
