Number Monkeys Part III

So last week we were presented with a Horrible Jobs number.

Bad, bad, bad…

Roughly 146,000 jobs were ‘created’ when we need a minimum of 250,000 jobs each and every month to support any façade that a Recovery is underway.

That’s the fact.

Here’s the non-fact. Unemployment WENT DOWN! DOWN… to 6.1%

This is mathematically impossible.

Unless you’re a Liberal and in charge of Monkeying with the Numbers then allowing a Slavish Media throw those Numbers at the Masses like the Poo they are.

Here’s how this happens…

The Liberals in charge calculate the unemployment number going down by Removing human beings from the Work Force.  (No, the Humans did not Die or even Disappear.  They just told someone they have decided to quit looking for work.)

So stupid is this line of ‘logic’ it hurts my head.

Follow this ‘logic’ for a moment.

If this is the correct way to arrive at an unemployment number then… suppose every man, woman and working age child (now apparently anyone under the age of 27-YEARS OLD) were to decide to QUIT THEIR JOB TODAY and then TELL EVERYONE THEY COULD THAT THEY HAVE ‘GIVEN UP LOOKING FOR A JOB’, we would be…

AT 100% EMPLOYMENT!

You got it?

If no one did anything… nothing… and simply said out loud that they had given up looking for anything to do…

WE WOULD BE A FULL EMPLOYMENT!

Yes, I”M YELLING!

The is Foolishness on a Profound level.

The real, actually, NO POOP unemployment number according to the Bureau of Labor statistics is… wait for it…

12%!

12%!

TWELVE PERCENT!

I recall not very long ago, in an administration not far away, when the unemployment number breached 5% the world was ENDING! IT WAS THE APOCALYPSE!

Now we have a ‘real’ unemployment number of 12% (Which I also hold SUSPECT) and the Press is nonplussed.  Instead they report the Administration’s Preferred Fiction.

Is there anyone left in the United States that believes there is not a bias benefiting Socialist thought on behalf of the Press? And if so, how can that possibly be? Xanax? Oxycodone? Pot? Lobotomized? How?

So the Number Monkeys Strike Again.

Why would you take any Media, News Outlet or Talking Head seriously who doesn’t take on this Flung Poo directly?  (Please note: In this case Flung Poo is not a racist Harry Reid joke.)
Why would we offer even a modicum of ‘trust’ to anyone who regurgitates such Crap?

This is all about Marx, Animal Spirits and Keynesian Economics. It’s all about the ‘Optics’. It’s all about how you FEEL… Not what the REALITY we face truly is. It’s all about what ‘is’ is.

And… never let the Leftist Progressives Fool You.  Economics is INDEED Politics.

It’s control.

Controlling your production is controlling YOU.

At some point we have to grow tired of getting covered in Poo.


Why Cyprus Kinda Matters…

There is a cooking process that is required to create the perfect Creme Anglaise.
While Stalin’s Omelet recipe requires “breaking some eggs…”
Soros’ Creme Anglaise recipe requires “tempering” them.

(George’s recipe is more delicate and sophisticated.  We should expect nothing less from a Socialist graduate of the London School of Economics.  By the way, Soros is a horrible man.  The more you learn about this guy, the creepier and more dangerous he appears.  I recommend looking for yourself.)

He knows, If you heat your eggs too quickly… they scramble.

And, That’s Bad.

You have to bring the mixture “to temperature slowly” to attain the perfect texture.

Cyprus is the first part of that process.  They are the egg yolks brought just to the point of boiling, separate from the whole.  Then slowly mixed back in…

They are a very small, isolated, portion of the EU… the “only people hurt” will be a select few citizens of Cyprus and a reasonably large block of “Rich Russians” who are already being positioned as criminals.  They might be criminals, but why is that important?  These two factors are important because we don’t want to scramble these eggs before we add them into the rest of the Euro Zone.  Nobody likes “Rich Russian Criminals” and there are too few Rich Cyprus Citizens to get angry… besides, they’re “Rich”… we all hate the “Rich” people right?  Make no mistake, this is a gentle business.  Once you scramble the eggs you can’t un-scramble them, so finesse is required.  But the Socialists have proven it can be done.  (Which I’ll explain shortly.)

The rest of the Euro Zone is the mixture that needs to accept the hot egg mixture and be brought to temperature.  In other words, they must be OK with the idea that the International Monetary Fund can seize the property of those who live in the zone.  For that matter, it must be perceived by a majority that it is “OK” to seize the property of those who simply have DEPOSITS in BANKS within the zone.

This is the perfect custard that Soro’s seeks.

Cyprus must be brought right up to the boiling point without going too far.  Then they must be slowing added “back into” the rest of the Euro Zone… which prepares the rest of the Zone for what’s next.

And what’s next is Italy, Spain, Portugal etc.

This is why the Germans are losing it right now.  They have propped up the Zone and see what is headed their direction.  (Just a note: These are the types of things that lead to war.)

But is Cyprus a big deal to those of us in the United States?

Well, the short answer is, aside from the possibility of that war thing, No.  No it’s not a big thing… because it has already happened here and we all seem to be OK with it.

In fact, it has happened in two different ways.

First, the U.S. population appears to be “fine” with the idea that the Government can Nationalize a Privately Owned Auto Manufacturer in the name of “the general welfare” clause, “general” in this case meaning their biggest donors.  I might have to remind some of you that the U.S. Government went “Full Socialist” by wiping out the owners (Bond Holders) of General Motors in favor of keeping the Unions alive.  It was nothing short of Communism on Display.  Period.  And, you’re good with it.  (Don’t argue with me… you’re good with it.  Are you talking about it?  Do you hear anything about it anymore?  Did you go buy a new Camaro?  That’s what I thought… you’re good with it.  So stop complaining and keep giving Socialism a big wet sloppy kiss.)

Second, the U.S. Population appears to be “fine” with the Government “printing” as much money as it sees fit.  In other words, simply creating money out of thin air.  Magically.  And by doing so, devaluing your savings in proportion.  The Euro Zone cannot do this… trust me, if they could they would be… like crazy.

Wait!  What did he just write?  Devaluing MY savings!?

Yes… just like in Cyprus.  Surprise!  Devaluing and Seizing are the same thing… save devaluing is just complicated enough for you not to fully understand what’s happening.

Every dollar The Fed prints devalues a dollar you saved.  When the Federal Government issues another series of Quantitative Easing (QE) adding 30% to the existing money supply it takes your dollar which was worth 100 pennies and makes it worth 70 pennies.  And this doesn’t just effect the “Rich Russian Oligarchs”… it effects every man, woman and child in this country, and anyone else who has deposits here – or owns “a dollar”.  Cyprus in Nothin’!  Our Fed has done it to not just us, but to the Whole World!

So Cyprus doesn’t matter because they have already been doing it to us and we are still sitting around smiling with our thumbs up our Collective Samovars.  And the way the Socialists see it, as long as our Animal Spirits don’t wake up to the fact that our property is being seized right out from underneath us, or if they do and we don’t care, then everything is good.

In the end, Cypress only Kinda matters…

Whether we like it or not, we’re all about to get Creme’d.  The Writing is on the Menu.

Instead of Cognac, try Tequila in your Creme Anglaise… actually that would probably make it Crema Mexicano, but it works really nicely.  That is, when I have any tequila left… which is Kinda Silly.

(I’m also fully aware that Robespierre, Lenin and Stalin have been attributed to the “Break a few eggs…” quote.  While I prefer Tovarisch Stalin… you can choose. I’m good with any one of them.)
