Obama’s Jobless Numbers DON’T ADD UP

As with everything the Obama administration has tried to push on the American public, the numbers JUST. DON’T. ADD. UP.  The administration, in this case the now obviously biased Bureau of Labor Statistics, conveniently quits counting people who just can’t find a job.  The labor participation rate is lower than it has been in a long, long time, which SHOULD mean that the unemployment rate is going UP instead of down.  Well, that just wouldn’t look good for Obama, now would it?  So, what do they do?  They do as they’ve always done and adhere to the Alinsky principle that the ends (of keeping power) justify the means of lying or other treachery to preserve it.  They basically created an artificial “unemployment rate” that only counts select data, and in a way the looks more favorable to the administration.  Were they counting and reporting the statistic they same way they did during the Great Depression, the rate would be much, much higher.  For example, when people run out of unemployment benefits, they just quit counting them as “unemployed.”  And they slyly neglect to report an increase in GOVERNMENT employment as public sector employment.  They also fail to mention that there has never been a single month since the recession started where more jobs were created than that needed to simply keep up with the number of people entering the work force from college graduations and other sources.  So, how can the unemployment rate be going down???

Simple answer, only by lying about it.

Official jobless statistics aren’t working

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES – The Washington Times | Friday, October 5, 2012

It says a lot when a government jobs report is so out of line with reality that no thoughtful person can take it seriously. At best the new unemployment number is a fluke; at worst it is the product of partisan hacks.

The Department of Labor reported Friday that total nonfarm payroll employment increased by a net 114,000 in September. This poor showing — it reflects a 28,000 drop from the previous month — should have resulted in unemployment increasing by a tenth of a percent. Instead, it dropped by 0.3 percent to 7.8 percent. Call that Chicago-style math.
