Here Come Those Lies Again

Okay, in the political world they call it spin, but if it is not the truth (and the truth is not a variable, but an absolute), then it is, by strict definition, a lie. And boy oh boy, can they lie- they have had years- in Chicago, they learn to lie before they have finished breast- feeding, and Hussein has learned from the best (or worst) Chicago has to offer, and as far as we know, he didn’t even have to sacrifice a child or small animal to do this.

The administration is trumpeting the .1% change in the jobless numbers as a sign that the economy is recovering- yeah, right- as if I found a nickel on the concrete and said my situation vis-a-vis the economy had improved. The reason they are loudly saying that the worst is past us is so perhaps we will allow them to pass this obamanation of a Health-scare bill. The administration wants to use the illusion of an improving economy when the truth is that a bunch of people who have been unemployed, have just quit looking, therefore they are not counted.

President Obama touted today’s surprising drop in jobless numbers as a positive sign that the recession has bottomed out, but cautioned that the nation still has “a steep mountain to climb” to full economic recovery.

“I’m convinced we can see a light at the end of the tunnel,” he said in remarks from the White House after the news that the U.S. unemployment rate dropped slightly to 9.4% in July.

The rate went down from 9.5% in June — the first decrease since early 2008 — despite the loss of 247,000 jobs nationwide as a larger number of people stopped looking for work, the Labor Department reported today. The drop surprised economists, who largely had predicted it would increase to 9.6%.

“The dawn of an economic recovery is here,” said Sung Won Sohn, an economist at California State University-Channel Islands. “The sharp contraction in employment has moderated, pointing to the end of the recession.”

Hallelujah- Praise the Lord, and pass the chicken! We are saved! Pope Barama has spoken, and it was bull-****. Only in Hussein’s world could we loose 247,000 jobs and have an “uptick” in the numbers- they have a serious problem with logic here.

Yea, right- wish in one hand, and… well, you know the rest. The facts all indicate that this is not only a small uptick, but a false one as well- just as September’s number will be deceiving as well, due to college students going back to school and some of the current jobless people able to take some of these “summer” jobs. 

This economy reminds me of a lava lamp- the liquid flows back and forth, giving the illusion of movement, but the liquid is still confined to the lamp itself, and actually goes nowhere.  The real truth is we are running out of jobs to lose.

Although the job loss is continuing, and forecast to continue into next year, the pace has slowed considerably. The economy lost 443,000 jobs in June — revised from an earlier estimate of 467,000 — and averaged 645,000 jobs lost a month from November through April. The unemployment rate has essentially remained flat for three months, although economists noted it still is likely to rise before reversing course for good.

“It’s unlikely that we’ve actually peaked yet on the unemployment rate. . . . I suspect we’ll probably still lose jobs for the rest of the year, but at a slower pace. The unemployment rate maybe won’t go quite as high as we thought it would,” said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist for IHS Global Insight, who has forecast the rate to hit 10.3%. “The huge increases are now behind us. We’re in the process of beginning to flatten out here.”

Now, Hussein, when he was asking for the stimulus, promised that without the money, we would hit double digit job losses, but with it, our losses would not exceed 8%. As it turns out, that was not the truth, and he continues to lie about the situation so he can ram through the Healthcare BS that does nothing more than exert control over one sixth of our total economy.

One provision to do this is one whereby the government can reach into your bank account in order to pay for your care, whether you give your approval or not. Rather Communistic, is it not? It was not a coincidence that the banks are the first things he wanted to control. This is illegal, having our government in our private enterprises.

 I think so, but then I read our Constitution, and none of these “Laws” are Constitutional- not the “Healthcare”, not the “Cap and Trade”, not the stimulus- none of it is legal according to the Constitution, which was purposely designed by our Forefathers expressly to prevent government infringement into our lives, exactly as it is happening now.

States pay for standard unemployment benefits, generally offering 26 weeks of checks. But in dark economic times, the federal government often steps in and pays to extend those benefits. Congress has acted three times during this recession to temporarily extend benefits, with workers in California and other states with high unemployment eligible for up to 79 weeks of benefits. All told, about 9 million people are receiving unemployment checks, with about 2.7 million of those getting the extended federal benefits, which begin to phase out at the end of next month.

But as the recession continues, about 80,000 Californians and 540,000 people nationwide will run out of benefits by the end of September, with the clock running out on an additional million by the end of the year, according to the National Employment Law Project. The organization wants Congress to provide 10 more weeks of benefits for unemployed workers in all states and 20 weeks for those in states such as California with jobless rates above 11%.

In July, the number of people who had been without work for at least 27 weeks increased by 584,000 to a total of 5 million, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The National Employment Law Project said the number of long-term unemployed was at an all-time high.

“You have this desperate situation with long-term unemployment, and now folks are running out in big numbers of unemployment benefits,” said Maurice Emsellem, the group’s policy co-director. “There’s a real need to get something done by September.”

If the Federal government continues to provide these benefits, they are superseding the job of the states, and they will make it very hard for the states to continue to pay out at those levels without federal assistance, and that’s the problem. The federal government wants the States to be reliant on the Federal government for their existence.

That is unconstitutional, to say the least.

Actually, nothing more should need to be said.

    “The administration is trumpeting the .1% change in the jobless numbers as a sign that the economy is recovering…”

    No, Obama is simply saying that the recession has bottomed out. He’s even said that despite recent drops that it will probably still rise to 10% before the end of the year. You’re putting words in his mouth. A full recovery is not even close but there is little evidence that the economy is still worsening and several key indicators that a recovery is beginning.

      I count anyone in his admin as him when it comes to this stuff, just as you lumped Bushies and Bush together then- and ALL of them were trumpeting this pitiful .1 as if the baby had just taken its first steps- I know that worse is yet to come- that’s evident by the fact that he is still there.

    • Blake says:

      Isn’t it funny how he went from promising that the unemployment numbers wouldn’t rise above 8% IF we had the stimulus, but now he has to eat those words, because the stimulus hasn’t worked?
      The reason it hasn’t worked is that he tried to be clever and time the majority of the money to take effect to aid the 2010 elections.
      So we can see from this that he doesn’t mind making us suffer, as long as his party remains in power- how nice and compassionate of him.

    Very astute of you to find that provision in HR 3200 that forces instantaneous payment of health care services through bank debits. Rest assured that few if any Congressmen have read or will read HR 3200 to even know that this provision is included, nor would they probably care if they did read it (unless they’re Republicans already opposed to the plan).

    • Blake says:

      You would be surprised at the number of people who have decided to hide their heads in the sand and say it aint so- but there it is if anyone wants to read it.
      But I am sure there are even some Democrats who would be opposed to the government having that easy an access to their accounts.
      After all, it is NOT their money.
