NC unemployment worst since Great Depression, UNCG and government spending spree, Other people’s money, Obama supporters predictable

“Guilford (Large NC County) appears on it’s way to a third consecutive year with annual jobless rates in double digits. Economists say that likely hasn’t happened since the Great Depression.”…Greensboro News Record December 2, 2011

“…and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them.”…Margaret Thatcher

Spending other People’s Money.

From Citizen Wells November 16, 2011.

“UNCG proposes 10 percent hike in tuition, fees”

“Tuition would rise 10 percent for UNCG students next year according to a proposal the university’s tuition and fee committee presented Tuesday night to the Student Government Association.

In-state undergraduates would see a $660 increase in their bills next year — an extra $345 for tuition and $315 for fees, bringing total tuition and fees to $6,158.

The increase would generate $7.4 million, with half of it used to offset budget reductions. The rest of the money would be used for need-based financial aid and pay increases for faculty, who have gone without raises in recent years.”

From Citizen Wells December 3, 2011.

From Rush Limbaugh December 2, 2011.

“Regime Manipulates Numbers to Get Unemployment Headline Under 9%”
“Bloomberg News is even reporting this means that more people left the workforce than got jobs.  Now, stop and think of this.  More people left the workforce than got jobs, and the unemployment rate goes down?  We’re dealing here with a serious form of corruption, manipulation of data; but, we all knew it was coming.  After all, we’re talking about the regime.  We knew this was coming.  We know the fact, we know the histoire, that no president’s been reelected with an unemployment rate higher than 8%.  So here we are 11 months away from the next election, voila! Heading into the Christmas, slash, holiday season, and we’re at 8.6%, the 0.6 doesn’t matter, we’re at 8%.  And the media is having orgasms out there, O-gasms.”

The Greensboro News and Record on December 2, 2011 presented an interesting juxtaposition of insanity on the front page followed by a moment of clarity from an informed citizen.

Left front top.

“UNCG students would see a 10 percent increase in tuition next year under a plan the university’s board of trustees will vote on today.

But they could see additional increases as high as 10 percent annually for three years beyond that under a proposal the trustees are also considering.”

Later in the day we learn.

“Update: UNCG trustees approve tuition, fee hikes”

“UNCG’s trustees this morning unanimously approved a plan to increase tuition 10 percent next year, as well as a proposal that could boost tuition as much as 10 percent for three years beyond.

Following a recommendation from UNCG’s tuition and fee committee, trustees voted to raise tuition by $345 for in-state undergraduates and fees by $315 for 2012-13, bringing total tuition and fees to $6,153.

But they also approved a proposal from Chancellor Linda Brady that would allow her to seek additional increases of up to 3.5 percent for another three years. That supplemental increase would be in addition to any other campus- initiated tuition increase the university seeks.”

On the top right front of the December 2 edition we have:

“Jobless figures worst in 80 years”

“data released Thursday by the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina show that Guilford appears on it’s way to a third consecutive year with annual jobless rates in double digits.

Economists say that likely hasn’t happened since the Great Depression.

“I suspect we would have to go back to the 1930’s (to find that),” said Don Jud, professor emeritus at UNCG’s Bryan School of Business and Economics.”

 I would provide a link but when I last checked this site was the only one that I found reporting this on the internet.

Anyone else see the irony, stupidity and connections to the Obama administration in this?

In the same December 2 edition of the News and Record on December 2 on the Opinion page the following astute observation was made:

“Athletic department drains UNCG”
“By Christopher C. Tew

Let’s examine Chancellor Linda Brady’s 10 percent solution to UNCG’s education costs:
Knowing that the new legislative majority wouldn’t sufficiently fund any level of education, UNCG proposed a 2011-12 tuition and fees schedule that has forced out several hundred students whose families couldn’t afford increases of more than $500, about what students must pay, after a 10.6 percent increase, to subsidize an athletic department of 250 athletes and 70 coaches and staff.
With incredibly poor timing, UNCG also limited enrollment “educational opportunities,” and thus income, to raise standards in an economic climate where college graduates have better chances of finding work.
To reconcile these incompatibilities, Brady proposes a 10 percent solution: increases raising $7.5 million; increases redistributing some families’ income to provide loans and grants for others; increases giving to UNCG’s athletic department, which teaches no credit courses, employs no one who addresses UNCG’s educational or research missions, and redistributes mainly North Carolina income to mainly out-of-state athletes because UNCG’s teams don’t generate enough interest and earned revenue to cover costs.
This 10 percent solution is typical of an administration that has botched the mergers of two academic divisions, demoralized and alienated its faculty and staff with heavy-handed arrogance, and plans to force students to pay for extravagant discretionary construction, most of it more suitably funded, accomplished and managed by free-enterprise firms, while the campus library goes without books and journals and is left to raise its own funds for a long-needed media center.
UNCG should simply disband its athletic department. The freed-up resources would exceed Brady’s 10 percent solution with no net increase in student costs. Long-term savings from salaries, benefits and NCAA obligations could fund ample intramural sports and improve neglected faculty compensation.
Brady might also augment the $324,000 compensation she apparently finds too meager.”

  1. Now we have a GM plant in Fort Wayne who are going to STRIKE if they don’t get MORE,and MORE,and MORE. I guess each union worker who puts a colorcoded bolt in a color coded hole thinks he should have the same pay as the CEO of the company. Sounds,and SMELLS like typical UAW BS.

  2. Did anyone see the “Chase” commercial where they boast of hiring 30,000…What did that commercial cost Obama, I mean you…and really who do they think they’re kidding with these bogus stats??? If millions of people are out of work and can’t find a job, how likely are they to believe the W.H. statistics???

  3. NH reps question Obama’s entry on the ballot.

  4. Did anyone hear about Rahm “the leaker” Emanuel is the one who tipped off Perry’s campaign about the Cain harrassment suit??? Not surprising he was the one who tipped off Lynn Sweet of the Suntimes about the JJJ affair knocking him out of the Mayoral race….Rahm uses the media and other government sources to get rid of opponents but you never seeing anyone fight back….Why do you think that is??? Don’t get me wrong, I am not an advocate for extra marital affairs I just think Rahms a rat…

  5. Bob; I can’t understand what they’re saying, too much backround noise…Can you translate?

    Bob; I can’t understand what they’re saying, too much background noise…Can you translate?
    Bessie, your guess is as good as mine. The first man is extremely upset and is easier to understand than the woman, but they are questioning the actions of what turned out to be an illegal election board meeting, only five members instead of ten.

    H.G. Wells, who was a socialist, wrote The Invisible Man, which was published in 1897. In this revealing clip from the 1933 film, the invisible man says: “An invisible man can rule the world, no one will see him come and no one will see him go …”

  11. The California DREAM Act was passed over a month ago.

    While the California economy tanks,

    While students riot over soaring tuition rates,

    While the deficit deepens by the day,

    While it’s still illegal for illegals to use those diplomas for employment,

    While Jerry Brown proposes another tax hike for the 2012 ballot to “fix” our busted treasury,

    Governor Jerry Brown and the California legislature passed the DREAM Act like it was nothing.

    I’m outraged.

    I don’t agree with Medved on a lot of things, but he is right and Rush Limbaugh is wrong.

    The numbers don’t lie.

    ”Most political battles are won by seizing the center. Anyone who believes otherwise ignores the electoral experience of the last 50 years.”
    Pat, I do have to agree also. The ugly truth is that our electorate in this country is not ready to vote in a president who is the conservative type we would like to have. That is sad, indeed, and should send a signal that the real problem with our country is not Zero, but the fools who elected him. The latter are still with us regardless of what happens to Zero.

    The main issue I see is which one, Romney or Gingrich, could best convince some of the same folks that elected Zero in 2008? I am afraid that Romney comes across as “slick” and a rich fellow to these voters, while Gingrich comes across as “smarty pants” and too rigid to the same group. Most of the “fools” don’t care about important policies facing our country, sad to say. That is blunt talk, I know.

    Huntsman Is Being Urged to Run as Independent

    Christie Todd Whitman, the former governor of New Jersey, is trying to persuade GOP presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman to run as an independent. “I would hope he would do it, frankly. He’s someone that I would support,” Whitman told Politico.

    Bachmann Accuses Newt Of ‘Influence-Peddling’ In Washington

    “…because he’s been a part of Washington, DC for over 30 years. He’s as establishment as you get. His address is located on the Rodeo Drive of Washington, which is K street. His organizations have taken in over a hundred million dollars just this year alone to peddle influence. You don’t have to be a lobbyist within the letter of the law in order to influence the outcome of legislation.”

    The only truly consistent conservative and true arrow ethically is Santorum who won’t get the look….even from so-called “conservatives”. He’s a “child” they say…and yet, “unless you become as a little child” or “and a little child shall lead them”!! Nothing will change in this country or the world UNTIL more people acknowledge God and His Will, being subject to it…than those who don’t, won’t, or who are simply pretenders in order to do their own….whether they call themselves “conservative” when it suits them or not!

  18. “SAD if true:
    Source: Herman Cain to Endorse Newt Gingrich Monday”

    More like a joke, Cain was never a serious candidate.
