Unemployment Rate Going Down While 1.2 Million More People Out of Labor
Force Last Month
web posted February 6, 2012
COLUMN – If you only listen to the
mainstream media or far left blogs, the recent announcement of the
unemployment rate dropping to 8.3% is great news, especially for those
seeking President Obama's reelection. What the mainstream media
neglects to inform you about is that in order to make the unemploement
drop they had to eliminate 1.2 million unemployed people over the last
month from the roll. They simply are not counted.
Pretty neat trick if you can get away with it, however: even using the US Dept. of
Labor's own reports, the true unemployment rate is 15.1%, down from
15.2% in December for the same reason.
Since Obama took office in 2009, there was 65.7% of the population
participating in the job market. Under his administration, that
percentage rate has fallen to a near record low of 63.7% and is in a
decline. The last time things were this bad Jimmy Carter was president.
The labor force increased from 153.9 million to 154.4 million, meaning
in the labor force surged from 86.7 million to 87.9 million.
But, somehow, the
concealed because the media leans way left and they
want Obama reelected and have shown they will paint whatever rosy
picture they have to, willingly, to protect him.
It is the uncomfortable facts that liberals hate, so they would rather
not discuss them. Obama is wonderful and America is doing great.
Record high debt, the number of people who cannot find jobs continues
to increase, gas prices skyrocketing along with food prices. Only 29%
voters think we are heading in the wrong direction - unless you
watch or read the so-called "unbiased reporting" of the major media.
America cannot withstand another four years of Obama. He stated when he
took office that was going to "fundamentally change America". That's
one promise he kept, to our nation's detriment.
