NC unemployment rate August 2013 drops due to .2 percent labor force participation rate, Labor force dropouts, 1.6 percent drop in labor force in 2013 not new jobs

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“In the Triad, a number of studies have ranked the area among the nation’s worst in terms of poverty and food hardship.”

““You have the people that were barely making it with 40 hours. Now, they’re below 30 hours and have the same household bills,” Sturdivant said. “And at the end of the day, if they go out and get another part-time job, they still won’t have insurance.””...Greensboro News Record September 2, 2013

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



The stated unemployment rate for NC in August is 8.7 percent.

Good news?


The labor force particpation rate dropped .2 percent last month!

It has dropped 1.6 percent in 2013!!!

This is huge news.

The Greensboro News Record could only state this.

“The trend of falling unemployment rates across the country has come, in large part, due to the number of people who stopped looking for a job. The government does not count those people as unemployed.”

  1. CitizenWells,
    Kinda unbelievable. If you would have mentioned to me, anytime in the last 40 years, that people in America had no hope of a meaningful job or life, there would have been disbelief. If you would have said that the government would so corrupt data and information about the economy to make failure look like success, there would have been disbelief. If you would have said that young college graduates had no chance at a job or future, there would have been disbelief. All of these things would have been inconceivable, and all of these events would have been marked by outcry from all the major journalist sources. Had any of these things happened under Ronald Reagan the left wing nuts would have screamed on the news and Saturday night comedians would have ridiculed.

    The truth is now the media and Hollywood puts “lipstick on a pig” that is the left wing nut agenda, and continues to support the deception that Obama is doing a good job as POTUS. This is an epic fail, this is an economic nightmare of government so out of control that the citizen’s can’t pay for it anymore. They rob the treasury and people continue to suffer. The media lies for the liberals, because reality would forever destroy their grip on American politics and the judiciary. So obnoxious has the political environment grown that grass roots movements to control government spending have been preyed upon by the very tax dollar they are forced to contribute (IRS scandal).

    Sadly I watch as the lies continue, the media ‘portrays’ the ‘savior’ as acceptable, when the nation and it’s people stagger and suffer. I ask an old question, “Does anybody believe it’s better now than it was in January of 2007 when the Democrats took control?”


  2. Pete.
    What is really scary is the true jobs situation.
    The stated unemployment rate does not include those who have dropped out of the work force,
    1.6 % this year in NC.
    It does include part time workers, which have increased under Obama & continue to do so
    because of Obamacare.
    Something’s gotta give & I am afraid it will do so soon.
    Smoke & mirrors can only provide an illusion of stability so long.

    “Trevor Loudon Explains U.S. Communist Infiltration”

    “TREVOR LAYS IT ALL OUT: How Communists Infiltrated the DNC and Now Run the Party. How Obama was Mentored by a Communist Party Agent, Who the FBI had Standing Orders to Arrest, if War Broke Out. The Chicago Communist Leaders Who Created Obama’s Meteoric Rise into Politics. Obama’s Close Marxist Czars. The Communist Terrorist Bomber Organization, The Weather Underground, Led By Bill Ayers, Who’s Plan is Being Implemented On Schedule by Obama.

    Trevor is a Premier Obama Researcher, Who Stays Clear of the Now Overwhelming “Birther” Evidence for Fear of His Work being Discredited. However, Trevor, We Believe You Should Seize the Timing Right Now by Joining Criminal Investigation Forces with Jerome Corsi and Sherrif Joe Arpaio’s Law Enforcement Investigation. Together, You Three can Accelerate the Halt of the Globally Dangerous, Obvious and Open Treason Now Taking Place at the Highest Levels of Our Government.”

  4. Pete – very good post! (6:06 pm)
    It rather ties in with Kak’s reference to the American Thinker article on the prior thread.

    “Suspended disbelief” is another way of saying “believing lies”, and I can’t get away from a passage in the Bible, Isaiah 28:14-15, so many centuries ago:

    Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves.

    Isn’t this what multitudes are doing today centuries later?

  8. From a friend this morning.


    “A Republican, in a wheelchair, entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee.
    The Republican looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over there?”

    The waitress nodded “yes,” so the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.

    The next patron to come in was a Libertarian, with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea.
    He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus, over there?”

    The waitress nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, “My treat.”

    The third patron to come into the restaurant was a Democrat on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down, and hollered, “Hey there honey! How’s about getting me a cold mug of Miller Light?”
    He too looked across the restaurant and asked, “Isn’t that God’s boy over there?”

    The waitress nodded, so the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. “On my bill,” he said loudly.

    As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched him, and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Republican felt the strength come back into his legs, got up, and began to praise the Lord.

    Jesus passed by the Libertarian, touched him, and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Libertarian felt his back straightening up, and he raised his hands, and he began to praise the Lord.

    Then, Jesus walked towards the Democrat, just smiling. The Democrat jumped up and yelled, ” Don ‘t touch me … I’m on disability.”

  9. Good morning CW et. al,

    Goodness gracious; watching fox&friends this morning, and while discussing Obamacare and showing clips of Obama peddling the Black Caucus with the Race Card (We have overcome bigger threats) and asked Chris Wallace about Obama Playing the Race Card. Wallace simply shrugged and didn’t respond. He was asked again, and simply said, I don’t know, do you want me to talk about the debt celling or not?

    Cowards. Can’t even address the obvious for fear.

  10. CW,


    Just to add, the Democrat was only 32 years old and a member of the SEIU.

  11. So,

    It’s Free Speech on a college campus when handing out Gay/Lesbian material and collecting signatures.

    It’s Free Speech when handing out pamphlets supporting the murders of unborn children through abortions and collecting signatures.

    It’s Free Speech when handing Marxist and Communist material and collecting signatures, but….

    It’s against Campus regulation to hand out copies of the U.S. Constitution on Constitution Day?????

    And we wonder what the hell is wrong with our Country…..

  12. Well,

    Of my quick rant this morning, have some brief running around to do, then cut the grass and prep the pool for closing.

    Take care my friends, Will try to pop in from time to time today.

  13. Good morning William, et al.

  14. The real unemployment rate in North Carolina is more like 15% to 25%. Be aware the state is murdering people and you may be on their list. The police and FBI in the state will not help you if you are targeted. They are paid to look the other way and the Federal government will not get involved.
