“11.4%: What the U.S. unemployment rate would be if labor force participation were back to January 2008 levels.” …James Pethokoukis, American Enterprise Institute, June 2013

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

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



I applaud the Greensboro News Record for this accurate jobs report April 10, 2014.
“Jobless rate falls again in Guilford, but what does it mean?”

“Greensboro’s unemployment rate keeps dropping, but that may not mean that more people are working.

Since February 2013, this region’s unemployment rate has dropped from 9.9 percent to 6.9 percent this February, according to statistics released Wednesday by the N.C. Department of Commerce. The numbers are not adjusted for seasonal variations in hiring patterns.

But the employment pie is shrinking, so the number doesn’t necessarily mean more people have landed jobs.

And because the state surveys employment in a variety of ways, one measurement is up, and one is down, sending mixed messages.

A simple count shows that 1,970 more people say they’re working, compared with February a year ago, but the Greensboro-High Point labor force, defined as people who are employed or unemployed and actively seeking work, has dropped from 370,500 in February 2013 to 360,500 this past February.

That suggests that many people simply have stopped looking for work, local economists have said in recent months.

Perhaps the best measure of jobs, UNCG economist Andrew Brod said, is the survey of establishments that asks how many workers they employ.

Wednesday’s establishment survey shows that the Greensboro-High Point metro area lost 800 jobs between February 2013 and February 2014.”

From Citizen Wells March 29, 2014.

“We have the Obama administration touting job creation.

Governor Pat McCrory of NC is pleased with the improvement in the jobs situation.

The truth has stayed mostly hidden or under reported.

To fix a problem it is important to:
A) Acknowledgement the problem.
B) Understand the problem.

It appears that neither A or B is the case.

The Labor Force Participation Rate in NC has dropped 4 percent since Obama took office in January 2009 and 1.7 percent since Pat McCrory took office in January 2013.

The real unemployent rate in the US and NC?

Well over 10 percent.”

God only knows the impact of part time jobs on NC employment and the economy.

  1. As long as organised labor keeps DEMANDING MORE,MORE,AND MORE, it is doubtful that the companies who are unionised will ever realise, true profitability…..and the liklihood of such companies ever expanding their workforces remains virtually nil. If a company pays out $50.00 to produce a product, and his non union competitor pays out $20.00 to produce the same exact product you don’t need to be Einstein to figure out who is going to make a profit when both products are marketed for $50.00 each.

  2. Sadly a lot of the UNION people havn’t the slightest idea what the difference is between NET profit, and TOTAL SALES. Even when they are allowed to look at the books they think UP is DOWN………and Bob Beckel is one such moron. If it was possible for anybody to LOOK LIKE A UNION, Bob Beckel more than fills the bill. His peer Juan Williams runs him a really close second.

    Bob Beckel was on the frontline in the civil rights fight —he thinks he was their greatest leader, just listen to him. Beckel takes every opportunity to demean ANY republican. If you watch “The Five” be prepared to take any high blood pressure medicine and don’t throw things at your TV when he speaks. He is the CRUDEST person on TV (everything turns to his sexual exploits). Maybe Fox is using him to expose the hypocritical left? I can’t stand the idiot.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday.

    Her resignation comes just over a week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces.

  18. Sen. Sessions: ‘Deliberate Plan by President’ to Collapse U.S. Law Enforcement System

    “Our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse, and it’s a deliberate plan by the president of the United States, and it’s wrong. And, people need to be aware of it and need to stand up to it and I believe the American people are beginning to do so.”

    Sen. Sessions rebuked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Vice President Joe Biden for their pro-amnesty efforts:

    “So, you come into the country illegally and the attorney general of the United States declares that these individuals have a civil right to amnesty. How can this possibly be: the chief law enforcement officer in America?

    “Vice President Biden recently said, quote: ‘You know, 11million people live in the shadows; I believe they’re already American citizens.’ Eleven million undocumented aliens are already Americans? Goodness. The vice president of the United States would make such a statement. It’s stunning beyond belief.”

  19. Observer……
    Most people who were,and/or still are involved with law enforcement, whether it is at state,county,or city levels are fine upstanding examples of American citizens,and are not FOOLED by the mentally twisted leadership we now have. When push comes to shove it will be our law enforcement at the front of the regiment……..pushing back the forces of evil. For BLAH-BLAH to say that 11,000,000 people live in the shadows tells very clearly about his TWISTED mentality. He is trying to speak for 11,000,000 people,and it is doubtful that any of them have asked him to speak for them. At best he is an absolute MORON.

  20. Observer……
    It seems that everytime BLAH-BLAH opens his mouth 10,000 verbal utterances, made of manure fall out.

    it is my understanding that her replacement is an even bigger loser…..oh well I guess it’s too much to expect a decent person to rise above all the other manure that is floating around in the White House now days….

    Rancher Bundy wants to graze his cattle on the land, the BLM wants to grace their desert tortoises on the land. Why can’t they share? The truth is, the federal government doesn’t care if Bundy’s cattle graze on the land. They just want Bundy to pay them a bunch of money for the privilege. It’s your typical liberal progressive Obama/Holder ploy – shakedown the working man for money to redistribute to your cronies. When you’re occupying the White House by fraud, you steal as much as you can while you can.

  30. Breaking: Sen. Harry Reid Behind BLM Land Grab of Bundy Ranch

    The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.
    ………..Back in 2012, the New American reported that Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning to build a $5-billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nevada.

    And journalist Marcus Stern with Reuters also reported that Sen. Reid was heavily involved in the deal as well.

    “[Reid] and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by a Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert,” he wrote. “Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada.”

    “His son, a lawyer with a prominent Las Vegas firm that is representing ENN, helped it locate a 9,000-acre (3,600-hectare) desert site that it is buying well below appraised value from Clark County, where Rory Reid formerly chaired the county commission.”

    Although these reports are in plain view, the mainstream media has so far ignored this link.

    The BLM’s official reason for encircling the Bundy family with sniper teams and helicopters was to protect the endangered desert tortoise, which the agency has previously been killing in mass due to “budget constraints.”

  31. BUNDY DAUGHTER SHIREE Speaks Out Against Government Terrorism


    I have had people ask me to explain my dad’s stance on this BLM fight.

    Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it is in a nut shell.

    My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972.

    These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars.

    These rights to the land use is called preemptive rights.

    Some where down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the bureau of land management. They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be use to pay the BLM wages and to help with repairs and improvements of the ranches.

    My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve.

    Instead they began using these money’s against the ranchers.

    They bought all the rest of the ranchers in the area out with their own grazing fees.

    When they offered to buy my dad out for a penence he said no thanks and then fired them because they weren’t doing their job.

    He quit paying the BLM but, tried giving his grazing fees to the county, which they turned down.

    So my dad just went on running his ranch and making his own improvements with his own equipment and his own money, not taxes.

    In essence the BLM was managing my dad out of business.

    Well when buying him out didn’t work, they used the endangered species card.

    You’ve already heard about the desert tortoise.
    Well that didn’t work either, so then began the threats and the court orders, which my dad has proven to be unlawful for all these years.

    Now they’re desperate.

    We are indeed witnessing the rise of Islamists in America. How has it come to this, that such a small minority has gained such a powerful political voice and influence?

  40. Ginger — As I understand it, an upside down cross or crucifix is a symbol of St. Peter as he was crucified upside down. But I am no expert on this. Hope that is helpful.

    Observer — Thanks for the info on the Nevada situation. This has the potential for escalating into something major, so I’m trying to keep up on it and share what I find as well. I used to live in Nevada and my wife and I have close friends there. We worked hard to try to defeat Harry Reid in the last election.

    Good morning Zach, et al.

    Navy Seal Ben Smith was on a call tonight with militia leaders, Law enforcement, Veterans, Carol Bundy and a bunch of others for a few hours….. was cut off and will have some details up by morning. This could take a while. FAA stopped all air traffic in the area for the next 30 days. UNESCO might be involved, foreign troops on American soil. Snipers. HELOS INBOUND AT THIS TIME from CA …… Apaches and Blackhawk, 150 soldiers by tomorrow and national guard on call. A lot of maybes and what ifs….. trying to stay with the facts.
    STAY VIGILANT Mind your Opsec at all costs
    This explains everything that they are planning to do and it’s not good. They are closing 100’s of acres including private property, the media are not allowed in, and they are planning on this taking up to 30 days. The Bundy family and friends, Veterans, Police Officer’s, Sheriffs, and Constitutional Patriots are all surrounded and will defend themselves if forced to. This has nothing to do with Cattle or Turtles, this has to do with The People of the United States of America giving up their homes, so this President can tear them down and in the name of Green Energy sell the land to China & other United Nations organizations. This is Agenda 21 and it’s been happening right under our nose. When you read this, make sure you look at the amount of land the Government now owns.…/2014/march/southern_nevada__0.html
