May jobs data euphoria over floundering ship of state, Recapturing jobs lost boast hides real problems with economy and employment, Citizen Wells warship analogy

“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


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

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



The low information and/or biased media has been reporting the following:

“U.S. has finally regained the jobs lost to the Great Recession”

The low information voters and many investors appear to be buying it.

A simple analogy:

A warship is struck by a torpedo.

Believing the ship to be in imminent danger of sinking, the captain orders most of the crew to abandon ship.

They are picked up.

Much to his amazement he discovers that a sand bar is preventing the ship from sinking.

The remaining crew members repair the hole and pump out the water.

The captain reports to the admiral, we have pumped out all of the water. We are ship shape.

Sounds good except that most of the crew is missing, the ship is still stuck and enemy submarines are lurking nearby.

The same with our ship of state.

We have patched the original problem but we are dead in the water.

The employment situation in this country is reaching critical mass.

We have record numbers dropping out of the labor force and record numbers relying on government assistance paid for by the remaining workers. Many of whom are working part time jobs.

Here is one small example of data not being reported by the mainstream media.

In just one month, from April to May, almost 300,000 more people wanted jobs who were not in the labor force.

Damn the torpedoes.

    THINGS HEATING UP FOR THE USURPER… Must Hear: Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro; Impeach Manchurian Candidate Barack Obama

    “But actually, he thought as he re-adjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connexion with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connexion that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version. A great deal of the time you were expected to make them up out of your head. For example, the Ministry of Plenty’s forecast had estimated the output of boots for the quarter at one-hundred-and-forty-five million pairs. The actual output was given as sixty-two millions. Winston, however, in rewriting the forecast, marked the figure down to fifty-seven millions, so as to allow for the usual claim that the quota had been overfulfilled. In any case, sixty-two millions was no nearer the truth than fifty-seven millions, or than one-hundred-and-forty-five millions. Very likely no boots had been produced at all. Likelier still, nobody knew how many had been produced, much less cared. All one knew was that every quarter astronomical numbers of boots were produced on paper, while perhaps half the population of Oceania went barefoot. And so it was with every class of recorded fact, great or small. Everything faded away into a shadow-world in which, finally, even the date of the year had become uncertain.”

    Devastating Poll Shows Sad State Of The ‘American Dream’

  8. Another psychological opinion on Obama ………..

    Dr. Keith Ablow: Barack Obama does not have “Americanism” in his soul

    Here’s the thing — I’ve been saying it before — Barack Obama does not have the will of the American people, Americanism in his soul, And this swap — somebody who may not feel very American for five people who definitely don’t — is symptomatic of that. It was bound to happen when you have a leader that doesn’t affiliate with patriotism.”

    Doocy agreed that the president “definitely wanted out of Afghanistan, and maybe [the prisoner swap] is his way of closing Gitmo.”

    “He wants out of America!” Ablow interrupted. “Trust me.”

    …….Arpaio, meanwhile, is operating under federal scrutiny, including a pair of court rulings that disallowed some of his policing methods.

    “A big state like Texas, you can’t find a bus station? You have to bring them all the way to Phoenix?” he said.

    I have a friend in Santiago Chile who is also an airplane nut. In addition to the latter affliction he is and has been for a number of years active in both parachuting,and parasailing. He is getting older now just like all of us,and he has begun to think more about self preservation,and abandoned his free fall fun ,and is only still active in parasailing. He operates a parasail that is powered,and has a propeller. He can stay aloft for hours at a time by utilysing thermals, in combination with minimal power. He once owned a Schweitzer built glider, and flew it quite often. Schweitzer was,and still is a very respected German glider manufacturer. This guy has literally done it all when it comes to anything relating to parachutes,ETC. I too have had a fascination with parasailing for a very long time,but I have never ventured to try it. Along the southern shores of Lake Michigan there is a lot of it going on,and there has also been a number of pretty nasty accidents involving sudden wind gusts,which the parasail operators were not ready for. I guess every pleasure has it’s rewards….both good ,and bad.

    You are right on the money. Anybody who would parachute into an enemy held territory has my complete respect,and my hat is off to him. It would be quite an achievement especially at night. Those people took very substantial chances,and risk. Especially when there are infantrymen on the ground shooting at you. Over the years our military developed free fall techniques which minimises their suspended air time. It would seem that a person falling at 125 MPH would be a hell of a lot harder to hit with a rifle than somebody falling at 5′ per second.

  18. WILLIAM…..good morning Tennessee stud…

    It does make a difference about the degree of pleasure you get from jumping out of a perfectly sound airplane, when “you aren’t getting shot at” (take my word for it)……you got to admire those old-timers……

    There will never be another generation with their will power, guts, and determination to win. Without the combination these three things, we would all be speaking German today.

    All that our PHONY economy needs to eventually fail is the continuing government crapola that is happening now. In addition I would say that if the most recent Soetoro BULLSHI# doesn’t get him impeached….nothing will. After all “slick willy” got impeached for lying to Congress over a sexual tryst. For Soetoro to make trades of prisoners for a DESERTER is one thing but to do it without first notifying Congress is a violation of Federal law,in addition to which there is a strong component of TREASON,because US assetts were supplied directly to an enemy of our country. The BASTARDS that were released were top of the line officers of the Al Quada,and Taliban. Now Harriet Reed will be forced to act, in accordance with our Constitution. If there is NO ACTION from Congress then they are ALL accessories to TREASON.

  20. oldsailor82

    According to Judge Napolitano US funds were used to transport the prisoners to Qatar, to compound the felonious act of not informing Congress at least 30 days prior. This could be the Soetoro act that ends his usurpation of the Wacky House.

  21. This person in the Wacky House (as Old Sailor often refers to) thinks he is invincible and is becoming more brazen by the minute.

    As you have probably read, illegal children are being dumped in AZ by the will of the Soetoro government. So far, at least 1,000 of them, and they are from Central America. Nothing is being done at the federal level to stop it , and AZ Gov. Jan Brewer is furious. ICE cannot handle it and DHS got involved. Woe is us. These kids will be sent all over the country and Soetoro wants it that way. It is a violation of federal law to transport illegals from one state to another. But, “at this point, what difference does it make?”

  22. Getting Worse by the Minute

    Top Oklahoma Republicans are outraged that the Obama administration will begin housing as many as 600 illegal immigrant minors at the Fort Sill Army Base as early as Tuesday — at an estimated cost to taxpayers of $252 per child per day.

    A President On The Payroll–But Whose?
    Barry is obviously ‘beholden’ to somebody…

    I was naive enough to believe that people would have generally been a lot more apprehensive at the mic slip when our president was accidentally caught sending obvious assurances (‘pending his reelection’) of collaboration to Premier Putin. Had George W Bush or ANY other conservative executive leader been caught doing that, he would have immediately been investigated and asked to take a sabbatical pending the results of that discovery.

    It doesn’t take a real observant person to call into question the safety of the presence of this sort of compromising leadership from a man who’s effectively done everything he can to express contempt for what his favorite religion has labeled as ‘The Great Satan.’

    He sends money to aid and abet our terrorist enemies. He allows our Benghazi diplomat and staff to be butchered by more haters of America and then makes excuses for their assassins’ behavior. He installs the guaranteed ruin of any hope for a sound economic future for this nation (fulfilling the avowed goal and vision of Osama bin Laden) – just because he can.

    His official acts of VIOLENCE against our country are innumerable and will take years to fully comprehend. And now he – impromptu – cuts his own deal with more rats, to free five of their top guys in exchange for the return of our contemporary Benedict Arnold, Bowe Bergdahl. The message he is sending out, wholesale to a hostile world, is – “Grab any American and we will open Guantanamo for you!”

    Is it just me – or does Barack not behave like a man who is upside-down ’50 large’ in the horse game and ‘Big Louie’ is now calling in some markers? Barry is obviously ‘beholden’ to somebody – and it’s high time OUR WORKING CONGRESS finds out who.



  26. Obama is a train wreck. Not sure how he is sill in office. How much damage can one president do. Complete fraud.

    The Charlie Daniels Band

    Strange and Dangerous – Soapbox 6/6/14

    I first started hearing about Bowe Bergdahl well over a year ago when I began receiving requests to help in bringing attention to the only American soldier still in captivity in Afghanistan.

    I am a fervent believer in the code of no man left behind and began sending out tweets in support of getting him home.

    If my memory serves me right, I received only one tweet from someone who claimed that Bergdahl was not what he seemed to be but any verifiable information about him was not forthcoming. The media was silent on the matter with the exception of reporting that he was still in captivity and the social media support for his release continued.

    When the story started breaking and the troops who served with him started coming forth to tell their story of Bergdahl’s desertion and betrayal, it soon became evident that he was at the very least a deserter and at the very worst an enemy collaborator.

    Although the general public, myself included, was not privy to this information, surely the President of the United States of America was and in my opinion, knowing that the public would be much less supportive of efforts to free Bergdahl when they found out, circumvented the law, the Congress, the media and the public and made a deal with the Taliban that it is hard to understand how any patriotic, rational American could make.

    And in doing so has set not only a dangerous but disastrous precedent America and the rest of the free world will have to deal with from now on.

    These five terrorists that Barack Obama has just turned back out on the world are like the backfield of a football team and will eventually take their places back in the lineup to wreak terror and chaos on their own people and the rest of the world.

    To me it’s tantamount to going to the San Diego Zoo’s ophiology area, opening the cages on the world’s most poisonous snakes and letting them crawl freely among the visitors in the park.

    Putting these murderous scumbags under the supervision of Qatar only means that they’ll have to operate from a branch office for a year before going back to headquarters, that is, if they decide to even stay around for a year.

    The situation with Bergdahl’s parents in the Rose Garden made things even more bizarre. His father looked like a Jihadi and spoke in Pashtun while Obama stood to the side and smiled like a proud uncle.

    It’s strange how bold Obama is when it comes to stretching the limits of the Constitution and downright breaking the law when it concerns domestic policies but how timid and weak he is when it comes to dealing with any nation or foreign leader who has the gonads to stand up to him, even a little bit.

    There was a time when a serious warning from an American president would have gone a long way in gaining the release of an American prisoner. But everybody knows that Obama is not going to back up anything he says, he hasn’t even dealt with the murderers of the four Americans in Benghazi.

    So Obama traded the farm on this one and put the land he’s sworn to protect, and the rest of the non-Islamic world in serious harm’s way for the foreseeable future.

    Much as Putin took Obama’s ” Tell Vladimir” comment as a sign of weakness and had no fear of occupying Crimea and now advancing on Ukraine, so the Jihadists will take the one sided deal they got from Obama as a sign of weakness which puts every American on foreign soil in jeopardy.

    This week a Taliban commander said that they were encouraged the way things turned out with the release of five terrorists held at Gitmo in exchange for the release of Bergdahl, and that they will be working hard to capture more American soldiers or others of “high-value”.

    How many Americans died hunting down and capturing these five terrorist leaders and how many more will die because of the weakness and folly of an out of control president who has released them?

    I still think Bowe Bergdahl should be brought back to America to face military justice. He is, or at least was, an American soldier and as such shouldn’t be left behind when all the troops are pulled out of Afghanistan, but certainly not at this price.

    What do you think?

    Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

    God Bless America

    I have the distinguished honor of being on the Committee to raise $50,000,000 for a monument to Hillary R. Clinton.

    We originally wanted to put her on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for two more faces.

    We then decided to erect a statue of Hillary in the Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside her husband William J. Clinton, who never told the truth, since Hillary could never tell the difference.

    We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Democrat of them all. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else’s money.

    Thank you,
    Hillary R. Clinton Monument Committee

    P.S. The Committee has raised $2.16 so far.

    Depending on the type of elders they are, I think I would ask them what it is they like about Obama. That could get them to open up, and then one might be able to kindly launch from there. Actually, I think most of them are hopeless, because they tend to get set in their thinking; however, once in awhile you can find one that can be reasoned with. I’m almost Old Sailor’s age, too, so I’m speaking about my own kind.

    My first encounter was with an elderly (70+) gentleman who saw my bumper sticker…..
    “OMG Obama Must GO” and he made the comment “I like Obama”
    Needless to say, I was speechless. Told him to have a nice day.

    My second encounter was in the Post Office and I ask the clerk
    “if they had recalled the Obama Postage stamps, because it wouldn’t stick to the paper.” “He said no, because the people were spitting on the wrong side!!” An elderly woman (75+) standing at the counter then commented,…. “I like Obama”
    I then asked her…… “I don’t like LIARS, do you?”

    I would say that you were pretty “quick on the trigger” with that person when you asked, “I don’t like LIARS, do you?” Uh oh, I’d better be careful with that politically incorrect language about “trigger”. After all, Old Sailor just told about a nine year old kid getting arrested because he pointed his finger at a cop and yelled, “Bang”. (Thanks Old Sailor for that one)

    What in the world are we coming to? With a loony, psychopath in the wacky house, we have trickle down (no, rather a flood of) idiocy. There is no hope of improvement as long as he continues his residency, and then it’s going to take a long time to fumigate the place.

    So glad that you are feeling once again like your old self. What an ordeal you’ve been through. You are so right about God being there for us.

    Psalm 46:1 says,
    God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

    “We’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society,” Attorney General Eric H.

    Ben Shapiro’s Obama Solution: ‘Prosecution Not Impeachment’

    Ben Shapiro proposes, criminal prosecution of the Obama administration under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act should be on the table. That act was created as a response to the mafia–it was designed to undermine mob claims of plausible deniability. It was created to hold command and control structures accountable for activities taking place down the chain.

    Orly Taitz already has a RICO suit against the usurper, but it hasn’t gotten much attention, yet.

    5 High Crimes And Misdemeanors For Which Obama Deserves To Be Impeached
    John Hawkins | Jun 07, 2014
    John Hawkins

    1) For Illegally Changing Obamacare: It doesn’t matter if the Affordable Care Act is called “Obamacare;” Barack Obama doesn’t have the authority to unilaterally change the law. Changes to the law have to be made by Congress and then signed into law by the President. Barack Obama has broken the law repeatedly by making at least 23 unilateral changes to the law. Saying, “The Republicans won’t work with us,” or more disturbingly, “It’s politically convenient,” is not an excuse for overriding the Constitution of the United States.

    2) Engaging In An Illegal War In Libya: While the President is the Commander-in-Chief, the Constitution gives Congress the ability to declare war. In the modern era, that has just meant an authorization of force from Congress, which Obama did not pursue. Additionally, we’ve tended to give Presidents the benefit of the doubt when American lives are at stake. However, in Libya, Obama didn’t seek the permission of Congress and we had no national security interest in Libya. In other words, Obama’s real justification for bombing that country and overthrowing its government was that HE FELT LIKE IT. Using the exact same precedent, the next President could bomb Mexico or Cuba without Congressional authorization. Incidentally, bombing either of those nations would probably make more sense than bombing Libya, although that’s not saying much since our intervention there has been a complete disaster.

    3) Lying To Sell Obamacare To The American People: When Barack Obama told the public if they liked their plan, they could keep their plan, he was lying. When he told Americans if they liked their doctor, they could keep their doctor, he knew it wasn’t so. When he told Americans Obamacare would cut costs by $2,500 for the average family, he was deliberately misleading the public. For a President of the United States to PERSONALLY spend months telling deliberate falsehoods to the American people in order to convince them to support something as massive as a government takeover of the health care system is beyond the pale. If the wilful lies Barack Obama told to sell Obamacare don’t merit impeachment, then there are no lies that a President could tell to the American people big enough to merit impeachment.

    4) Violating Immigration Law And Illegally Implementing The DREAM ACT: Simply put, Barack Obama has ceased to enforce most immigration law. As Senator Jeff Sessions has noted, “at least 99.92% of illegal immigrants and visa overstays without known crimes on their records did not face removal.” In other words, we’ve already stopped deporting anyone other than SOME hardcore criminals and gang members. Additionally, when the DREAM ACT didn’t make it through Congress, Obama simply implemented it ANYWAY. Not only is he explicitly telling illegal aliens they can stay in the United States, he’s illegally giving them work permits that he has zero right to offer. Even if Congress is too split on the issue to unify and put a stop to what Obama’s doing, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s flatly illegal. If this is allowed to stand, tell me ANY LAW on the books that the President is obligated to enforce?

    5) Releasing 5 Taliban Terrorists In Exchange For Deserter Bowe Bergdahl: Barack Obama was legally required to alert Congress 30 days before he released terrorists from Gitmo. Not only did he fail to do so, but more seriously he released five high level terrorists who he knew were likely to help kill Americans in the future. One of the terrorists has ALREADY SAID he intends to go back to Afghanistan to fight America. Barack Obama spent a lot of time bragging about getting Bin Laden, but he just released five Bin Ladens back into the world and a lot of Americans who didn’t desert their country are likely to die because of it.

    The “incompetence narrative” that many of Obama’s detractors have employed to explain his abysmal governance is false. It is not incompetence; Obama is the ultimate saboteur.

    With the advent of the Bengazi Select committee hearings (wherein Congress will investigate the White House’s consignment of brave American civil servants to death), in the wake of the Veteran’s Administration scandal (wherein the federal apparatus consigned American veterans to death), and in the aftermath of the Berghdahl-Taliban prisoner swap (wherein Obama illegally traded five of our most dangerous enemies for one treasonous Army Private), it is positively surreal that this President could stand before an international audience and pontificate in the vein of America’s “commitment to liberty, our claim to equality, our claim to freedom and to the inherent dignity of every human being.”
    Not one utterance of Obama’s D-Day oratory was sincere.
    Not one…

    NSA Whistleblower: NSA Spying on Judges, Top Gov’t Officials, Generals, News Media …No Digital Information Secure, NSA Collecting Every Word of Every Conversation

    This, in my estimation, is the reason there is no push back against the usurper, and his law breaking. They all know the usurper will use any info he can get to ruin them, and they all have skeletons in their closet.

    Very good Bible verse for the present modus operandi.

  66. Is Michelle Obama’s political trajectory one that aims to get her in the White House as president via Hillary Clinton?

    Will the 2016 election be one with a Hillary Clinton-Michelle Obama ticket?

    Shudder time!

    For those comforting themselves with the thought that senatorship is too far back in the power line for overbearing Michelle, getting elected as New York Junior Senator was the trajectory of how Hillary could make a run for U.S. president.

    Nothing but death and taxes are guaranteed in life on earth. But with Hillary and Michelle as president and vice president, it is guaranteed that Barack Hussein Obama will remain in the White House beyond 2016 for the ongoing Fundamental Transformation of America.
    If this political ticket were to materialize and if they can once again rig the election in their favor…..were I Hillary, I would;

    1. Sleep with your back against the wall, and always keep one eye open.

    2. Never take a glass of water, or a piece of candy from the Mooch.

    3. Watch getting on and off airplanes, falls do happen if the V POTUS is walking behind you.

    4. Never ride in an open car going 10 miles per hour in downtown Dallas, and avoid giving handguns to lawyers, they tend to shoot themselves.

    5.Give your Secret Service guards a loyalty test and fire all black ones.

    6. Surround myself with white people, even though they may be stupid.

    7. Ban and gag Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson from the White House and from all public appearances for at least 20 years.

    8. Keep the V POTUS island hopping showing natives how to raise a garden, or what a proper diet for them should be, for at least 7 of your 8 years in office.

    9. Decline all invitations from the V POTUS to have a private lunch, or take in a midnight Rocky horror movie, or a late night walk on the Mall.

    10. Avoid all advice and consent given by the Congressional Black leaders, regardless of the political party they may be from.

    11. Watch Slick Willie like a hawk (night and day), he will try to hump the V POTUS just add another notch on his belt of things to do before he dies.

    12. Above all else, never let the V POTUS in front of a television camera because she has been noted to say stupid things like, “This is the first time in my adult life that I have felt proud of my country” or, “All of this for a damn flag”, or she may even wear clothing which presents her body shape as that of a man.

    13. If the LGBT and cross dresser organizations invite you to their Xmas party as the guest speaker, decline the offer by faking another fall.

    14. If the V POTUS starts speaking in Arabic, or other unknown tongues, have her committed. she hasn’t learned to speak English yet.

    If Hillary is elected and can remember to follow these simple rules, perhaps she will make it through 8 years…but I seriously doubt she gets that far.

    Too many Benghazi’s….too many Baghdahl’s….. two… too many Obama’s

    Every Month Under President Obama, One Thing Has Always Gone Down And This Chart Shows It

    This is the labor force participation rate.

  68. Don’t you think the idiots in the White House are dumping illegals in Arizona to be vindictive against Sheriff Joe? Ozero loves to stick his finger in everyone’s eye who cross him.

  69. Tina | June 8, 2014 at 6:51 pm |

    Sure, Tina; then, Sheriff Joe will round ’em all up and put them in pink underwear.

    Bar an Act of God, nothing is going to stop Sheriff Joe from releasing the information. Nothing. Not only is there the document fraud investigation, but a criminal investigation, as well. I’m sure they’re thinking up ways to spin it as I type.

    Gonna be a bumpy ride.

    Nothing will ever happen to any of the BASTARDS who are now in control until ALL of the FEDERAL JUDGES have been neutralised,or brought back to reality. There is still a chance of this if one is found who hasn’t yet adjudicated a case relating to Soetoro. If any one of the Federal judges can be made to administer the Constitutional laws of America, the case will go to DISCOVERY. As long as it is a Federal judge,who is presently filling that capacity. Without a doubt he will be going against the flow and doing so could get him removed,but it will serve to let the rest of the Federal judges know that a serious crack has appeared in the DOJ dam. It will also open the door to outright prosecution of Mr. Hold her. BTW the RICO act was enacted for that very purpose.

  72. oldsailor82

    If a Federal judge must be prosecuted and removed from the bench it will most likely open the door to the prosecution, and CONVICTION of all of the judges who have acted against our Constitution,and the punishment will be severe. They know that in unity lies their strength. Divide and CONQUER. All of the Federal judges have signed illegal agreements to support the crooked administration….no matter what, but it will only require one seated judge who wants to save his own skin. All of the Judges who have had cases in front of them which were founded as lawsuits against Soetoro,which he/she subsequently dismissed,WILL eventually face PROSECUTION,and they all know it. I reiterate….NOTHING WILL HAPPEN, until a way is found to open a crack in the dam. There is a WAY, it is called WE THE PEOPLE. The crack in the dam will not happen either until WE THE PEOPLE CAUSE IT to crack by whatever means necessary. I refer everyone to the DOI… it as many times as necessary to grasp the message contained therein.

    I think that you might be right regarding the ethnicity of Ryce. I too have thought that as well.
