NC unemployment claims increase second highest in nation, July 26, 2012, 11948 claims, Second only to CA, NC Labor force decreased and jobs lost

“The United States economy has lost more jobs than it has added since the recovery began over a year ago.”…NY Times Sept. 20, 2010.

“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

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

Remember this article from the Greensboro News record reported here on July 20, 2012?

From Doug Clark of the Greensboro News Record July 20, 2012.

“North Carolina loses or gains jobs in June, depending on which state numbers you believe, if any”

“North Carolina lost nearly 8,000 jobs in June from the previous month, the state’s Commerce Department reports this morning.”

“The unemployment rate held at 9.4 percent, but that was because the labor force decreased.”

“Note: There are two sets of numbers in the report. You will see some media reports stating the state gained 16,690 jobs in June.”

“Please weigh in on the credibility of these numbers.”

From the US labor Dept July 26, 2012.

“The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending July 14 were in California (+26,244), North Carolina (+11,948), Georgia (+8,372), Alabama (+4,148), and Oregon (+3,019)”

The unemployment rates for June by NC county will be released tomorrow.

    ‘Muslim Brothers plotting overthrow of Gulf states’

    The comments by Dahi Khalfan, one of the most outspoken security officials in the United Arab Emirates, follow the detention in the UAE since April of at least 20 dissidents, according to relatives of the detainees and activists.

    “There’s an international plot against Gulf states in particular and Arab countries in general…This is preplanned to take over our fortunes,” Khalfan told reporters at a gathering late on Wednesday marking the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

    “The bigger our sovereign wealth funds and the more money we put in the banks of Western countries, the bigger the plot to take over our countries…The brothers and their governments in Damascus and North Africa have to know that the Gulf is a red line, not only for Iran but also for the Brothers as well.”

    Most of the detainees since April are Islamists, targeted by an official clampdown amid concern they may be emboldened by the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in other Arab countries such as Egypt.

  5. Brian Williams Presses Romney’s Taxes and Hidden Past: Ignores Obama’s Identity Fraud

  6. Comment by 2discern at ORYR:

    “If Romney releases anything before barry soetero unseals his past, you’ll know the fix is in already that Rommie was a play candidate just like McCain. He (as well as ALL of DC) knows barry is ineligible to hold office. Integrity in leadership stands up to corruption. Without addressing the obvious fraud-in-chief as illegitimate POTUS the game is already decided.

    Copy this comment for near future reference. I repeat, with no confrontation of barry’s lack of records to all of his past before the election, the PTB (which is not our vote)have already determined the outcome. The issue is crucial. The single most discerning aspect of all the rhetoric (jobs, economy, foreign policy, blah, blah,) is barry soetero’s REAL ID.”

  7. CitizenWells,
    Thank you for reminding us that people are still out of work. There are still many Americans wherein being self sustaining and employed gives a sense of pride and integrity. The current economic climate robs them of this, despite the numbers whom truly wish to succeed upon their own accord. While many would dream of running a business, some were not endowed with the mental tools required to employ others by their creator. I want to personally thank those that employ other Americans, and thank them for the gift to those in need of a chance to succeed and care for their families. The posters here frequently go ‘off topic’, but provide useful information. You CitizenWells, tend to distill the thoughts of many into the posts that you create, and remind us of the reality of what the country is experiencing.

    While the ‘failures’ of the Obama Administration and Presidency are to numerous to discuss, joblessness is the prime example of a failed national and Presidential policy. We as Americans have always been driven to produce with our own hands, to create destiny from dust, and to drive success from nothingness to better ourselves and children from our past. This is the legacy our past Americans have given us, and should be the goal of those of us whom follow. The hopelessness from unemployment is the scourge of our present time, more so than any disease or climate problem. This problem continues to be untreated by our federal government, because the vision of those is not to empower, but to control.

    The longing and love of Freedom will always be found in the impetus to become what we were not born into. To improve ourselves and the quality of life of our children, which so many have risked so much to attain. The Constitution and government were created to facilitate this process, not to enslave people to the will of politicians or bankers. I, perhaps like you, and many other posters have become a ‘endangered species’. Yet, I continue to search for truth and educate my fellow Americans to the danger of an executive branch that no longer respects or defends rule of law or the Constitution. The posts and posters here give me hope that America is not lost for future generations.

    “I was a big Obama supporter. I had a fundraiser in my home, gave money to his campaign. I really believed in him and believed in what he stood for. When he gave the speech about the ‘67 borders, it was nothing that had come up in his campaign originally. That really changed my mind about him. When he had the prime minister of Israel, [Benjamin] Netanyahu, to the White House…he was disrespectful to him to the point that I’d never seen.”
    “In his second term we’re going to see the real Barack Obama… He’s going to place Israel in a position where they’re in danger.”
    (Actually, he already has!)

    Why would any American be against auditing the Fed, or anything else?

    The human parasites still think that they are going to receive everything FREE from Soetoro. Eventually they will attack the provider of their IMAGINED Utopia when it fails to materialise. I will personally dance around their fire and offer them words of encouragement,as their anger grows more intense with each passing day.

  21. Census Shows 200,000 Small Businesses Shut Down From 2008-2010

    According to Census figures, some 200,000 small businesses disappeared from the rolls between 2008 and 2010. Those businesses were responsible for some three million jobs. The Obama administration claims that they’re moving in the right direction – but the direction of the economy is now reversing itself.

  25. Another “incredible” until you consider the source:

    Carney Unable to Identify Capital of Israel

    Carney would not say whether President Obama believe it’s Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. For nearly a minute, in response to repeated questioning, Carney only says that “our position hasn’t changed” and that he hasn’t gotten that question in a while.

  26. Old Salt…..yes, and there are too many strategic positions given over and too many thug Zero sycophants who will continue to wreak havoc, cooperating with enemy forces, etc. …..of course congressional members are also a driving force of such treason with accompanying cowards even on the so called “conservative” side.

    Russia wants naval bases abroad: report (Cuba)

    Chirkov’s statement marked a sharp about-face for Russia, which closed a Soviet-era naval base at Vietnam’s Cam Ranh Bay and a spy base in Lourdes in Cuba in the early 2000s during President Vladimir Putin’s first term.

    Along with financial reasons, that move was part of Putin’s bid to improve ties with the US. But relations with Washington deteriorated and Putin, who was re-elected to a third term in March, has grown increasingly eager to challenge Washington.

    Remember…”tell Vlad to wait until after the election….I’ll have more flexibility then”!

    “Does anybody believe the democrat party has the best interests of the Country in mind?”

    I sure don’t, but I’d also lump the Republicans in that catagory also.

    It’s so obvious that we have been INDOCTRINATED in to believing that the lesser of two evils is “good”.

    The Republicans do NOT have the best interest of the Country as a whole in mind, or they wouldn’t allow this UNConstitutional “President” to stay in office.

    It’s time we ALL woke up to that FACT.

  32. Interested Bystander

    Observer linked to this article:

    “Census Shows 200,000 Small Businesses Shut Down From 2008-2010”

    But it doesn’t matter because those small business owners didn’t build those businesses, it’s not their money that they lost, it was someone else’s money and hard work that built those businesses. The owners simply PROFIT from the hard work of OTHERS, and they need to pay more. Oh wait, the businesses are closed, maybe there’s a disability associated with losing a business, and those business owners qualify for Government hand outs now that someone else built their business and then shut it down.

    You need to listen to the President and believe what he says.

  35. Democratic senators offer gun control amendment for cybersecurity bill
    By Ramsey Cox – 07/26/12 07:29 PM ET

    Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cybersecurity bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.

    Shortly after the Cybersecurity Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some “reasonable” gun control measures.

    The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.

    The amendment is identical to a separate bill sponsored by Lautenberg. Feinstein was the sponsor of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.

    tell them to force the gov. itself to answer for handing over the guns to the enemy and locate all of those guns before they start disarming those who need to defend themselves from THOSE guns.
