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…
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.
Controlling your production is controlling YOU.
At some point we have to grow tired of getting covered in Poo.
