If you Leave the Labor Force, Do you Die?

This is something we’ve been hearing a lot about over the last 4-years.

X” number of people have left the labor force“.

Well… where did they go? Belize?

If they are still here, then what are they doing?

If they have decided to not work, look for work or participate in any way… then what Have they decided to do?

(Shhhh… The dirty secret is they have decided to take your tax dollars instead.  Don’t expect a thank you card.)

The numbers are being, and have been, manipulated for years.

And the profoundly sad aspect of this “game” is… the best they can do is 7.3% unemployment. That’s the BEST. They are Pro’s at cooking books… and this is as good as it gets.

Trust me, if they could do better they would. These guys would be thrown in jail for such reporting if they lived in the private sector.  But they don’t.  They live in the unaccountable world of the Public Sector.  They live in the World of Government.

Just as an exercise…

Please think real hard and remember a short time ago when Bush was a “criminal” for presiding over an unemployment rate of 5%.


The world was ending at 5%.

Oh… and Gas was over $3. Bush was also in bed with Big Oil because Gas was over $3.


The world was ending because Gas was over $3.

Wake Up folks.

I would slap you, but I’m too drunk.


Save the Speculators!

At This Very Moment far too many Oil and Gas Speculators are losing everything they have.

Gas prices are falling and their call positions are now worthless!

They need your help!

Some of their families will go hungry.  Some will lose their homes.  Some will lose their cars.  They could find themselves in the unemployment line hoping that more than almost two years of taxpayer dollars will help them scrape by.

All of this through no fault of their own!

They are Victims of an Unjust Society.  A Society that revels in the lowers prices that are single-handedly destroying these Speculator’s livelihood.  A Society that expects to drive cars, heat their homes and benefit from products manufactured and sold at the lowest possible prices.  Evil, Greedy people.

Put a stop to this senseless hardship being placed on those who can suddenly least afford it.  Call your nearest Liberal Congressman and demand a tax-payer bail-out for those less fortunate than you, those victims of your callous disregard for their well-being.

Social Justice!  Market Justice!

(If you’re going to Demonize them when they get it right… then, It seems only “Fair”.)

For the rest of you who understand Economics 101 and how Free-Markets work, please disregard this post.
