“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”…Jesus, John 8:32

“There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.”…Gallup CEO Jim Clifton 

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

“anything that gives or is meant to give a false impression.”
Got that!
From February 4, 2015.
“Is the unemployment rate really just a ‘Big Lie’?””Clifton explains, accurately, that the Labor Department counts someone as employed even if they are working part time but want a full time job. It also considers people who have no job and haven’t looked for one in the past four weeks as “not in the labor force,” rather than unemployed. Clifton continues:There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.”

“The unemployment rate isn’t a “Big Lie.” It’s simply one statistic among many that we use to judge the health of the economy.

But the American people don’t need government statistics to tell them whether they are employed or if their economic fortunes are rising or falling. You’d think the CEO of a polling company would know that.”

Jim Clifton, the CEO of Gallup has a good working knowledge of the English language.
Do the folks at Fortune use dictionaries.
Or are they just biased or getting funding from the Obama camp?
Here is Fortune’s reporting on the February jobs data.
 “Workers rejoice: February hiring was huge with 295,000 jobs created””Last month’s rate of job growth surpassed economists’ estimates, pushing unemployment down to 5.5%.”

“Last month’s rate of job growth surpassed economists’ estimates, pushing unemployment down to 5.5%.

What you need to know: February was the 53rd straight month of employment gains in the U.S., and the 12th straight month of job additions above 200,000.”

“The big numbers: The U.S. labor market added 295,000 jobs in February, surpassing economists’ estimates of 235,000 jobs, according to Bloomberg data. The nation’s unemployment rate fell to 5.5% from 5.7% in January and beat analysts’ estimates of 5.6%.

Job gains for January were revised down. January fell to 239,000 from 257,000 jobs. November through January represented the best three-month gain for the labor market since the late 1990s.”

“What you may have missed: February continues to builds on a standout streak of job growth over the past several months, capping off 2014 with 3 million new workers and jumpstarting gains for 2015.

Those gains have continued into February despite brutal weather across the U.S. New England has been digging itself out from a seemingly never-ending string of snow storms, and Chicago logged the coldest February since 1875, according to the National Weather Service..”

Here is the data from the US Labor Department BLS for February 2015. 
“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 295,000 in February, and the unemployment rate edged down to 5.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.”

43,000 fewer Whites employed in Feb!!!

There were 354,000 more people not in the labor force!

There were 180,000 more people not in the labor force who want a job now!

There were 250,000 more Hispanic/Latino workers employed since December 2014.

Further examination of US Labor Dept. data for the past 6 years reveals a much worse jobs scenario.

So, who is telling the truth and who is telling a lie?

    “American “Nightmare” Shocker: The Real US Homeownership Rate Has Never Been Lower”

    “What however not at all known, is that just like the unemployment rate’s major methodological revision several decades ago, so too the homeownership calculation has been “adjusted” in recent years with the consequence of making it appear better than it is.

    To normalize for this revision, Bank of America ran a simulation on the US Homeownership rate, in which it “derived a homeownership rate assuming household weights by age group as of 1994. In other words, we only allow for the change in the homeownership rates over time to matter, holding the household age weights constant. Under this methodology, the homeownership rate would have declined to 62.1% last year.”

    In other words, instead of the most recently announced 63.9% homeownership rate, which was already the lowest since either 1983 or 1994 depending on how one looks at it, when stripping away the adjustment “fudge” which added some 2.3% to the homeownership rate simply because US households have aged, the real homeownership rate is far worse than what everyone believes.

    As Bank of America summarizes, “this suggests that the decline in the homeownership rate thus far has been even more dramatic than the published data suggest.”

    It does indeed, and as the chart below shows, when stripping away the now traditional assumption fudges which have flooded every single data set and made virtually all the New Paranormal data meangingless due to its reliance on pre-Lehman crash demographic and labor participation assumptions, the reality is that not only is the American Dream now completely over, but that the American Nightmare has never been worse, because as BofA just calculated, the real US homeownership rate has never been lower!”

    now take a look at how many homes have been foreclosed,and are now BANK OWNED…….especially those having a price tag $250,000 or greater. Only housing selling is homes of 1500 sq ft. and less……even then only after stringent scrutiny of buyer’s capability to repay loan.

  4. CW…….
    Just about any neighborhood you visit these days there are signs of,and obvious lack of maintenance to many homes. Some are owned by seniors like myself,and some are owned by people who just don’t GIVE A DAMN,and others are owned by people who should never have been allowed to obtain a loan in the first place. Really sickening to see what some of these people do to the houses then walk away from them. Often thousands of dollars in damage.We have had many houses stripped of their copper wire,and plumbing. Some even had the motors driving gas furnace blowers stolen. This is ALL going to get a hell of a lot worse. Vacant houses are now under attack as well. Around here even the theft of aluminum siding is happening. Late last year one house was totally stripped, of all salable metal,(including aluminum siding) yet neighbors in close proximity neither saw or heard a thing……but they see and hear everything else!

    But thank you for your wisdom……

  6. …….soon we will need either 24 hour armed guards of our homes,or have a number of CLAYMORE M-18s around the property. I found evidence last fall that somebody tried to break into my shop. There was some really deep gouges at the door where they tried to use a crow bar to force the door open. I have a STEEL DOOR,with welded steel shielding at critical points. The perps were UNSUCCESSFUL. I also use magnetic proximity switches on the inside of the door and the windows. If a door is forced opened there will be one hell of a noise following, it is a siren and GUNFIRE, My shop is only 30′ from the rear of my house,and I have a clear line of sight, in the event that a SHOTGUN with 00 buckshot is required. An intruder might gain entrance to my shop, but he will not exit the building……ALIVE.

  7. CW…….
    …..I am a bit doubtful that the American dream broken forever,rather I tend to think it has just become BADLY BENT………of course who wants a home that is either badly bent ,or broken?

  8. 6.5 million very old US citizens.

    Thousands with active social security numbers were born before US Civil War!!!

    I only have one question. How many of these people voted democrat in the last election, and specifically for Obama.

    Allen West calls the usurper “resident” and talks treason!
    This article, by West, is alarming, about Clinton and the usurper.

    Clinton email scandal a symptom of greater cultural rot
    Written by Allen West on March 9, 2015

    “And let’s be clear, former State Department Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills — who has been eerily silent through this entire episode — only fired the Ambassador with the full knowledge and approval of the secretary of state. Which brings up an interesting point, don’t you think Secretary Clinton would have informed the president that one of his representatives in a foreign country was being fired? She would have done that from a private email — but then again, President Obama never knew about any of this. And where is former State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland?

    All this reminds me of the quote attributed to Marcus Tulius Cicero:

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    BOB STRAUSS…good afternoon my friend

    Cicero had it right……America has had it’s share of fools…but the only other traitor i know of in our history was Benedict Arnold who tried to sale West point to the British….but was quickly found out and spent the rest of his days in England….

    Will O’Bozo spend his remaining days in jail…or Kenya….or maybe Indonesia…or maybe Selma Alabama ?

    LEAKED AUDIO RECORDINGS Reveal Hillary Clinton is a Muslim Brotherhood Agent Who Helped Muslim Brotherhood Take Control of North Africa and Middle East

  15. Did any of you happen to notice how the “Obama” daughters were dressed for the walk across the bridge in Selma?
    I am no fashion expert, but they look inappropriately dressed for the occasion.

  16. Here’s the picture of the daughters to save you from having to search for it.

  17. oldsailor82,
    I’m reading about a letter from 47 Senators, telling Iran the usurper’s acting unconstitutionally, and any agreement between the U.S. and Iran is void when the usurper leaves office. All Treaties have to be approved by the Senate, so I don’t see how it would ever be in effect, but that’s the story.

    It sounds as if they are getting ready to put the cuffs on the usurper. This is getting pretty interesting, when 47 senators are warning Iran not to make a deal with the usurper, because it won’t be worth anything.

    I’ve seen some whining democrats claiming the 47 senators are guilty of breaking the Logan Act, and are demanding their heads. Which leads back to the total tyranny and illegality of the usurper’s illegitimate regime. The usurper has broken the Logan act in Kenya. Now we have the Clintons getting rich off of the Arabs. The whole government is crooked, and spiraling into the $hit hole like Detroit.

    The Regime is crumbling, these 47 American Senators have said, ENOUGH!

    I think the days are numbered for the usurper and his Muslim Brotherhood cronies, including Hillary, they all know by now that he’s not American, and he really has no authority, they have all been educated by Zullo, and Arpaio. They have just fired the first shot across the bow of the, usurpers ship “Bull$hit”, and I think there will be another salvo soon.

  18. As Western Journalism reported, nearly half of all sitting U.S. senators joined this week to send a letter to Iran explaining that Barack Obama’s deal with the nation regarding the proliferation of its nuclear weaponry program is unconstitutional. The 47 signers – all Republicans – went on to note that, since the arrangement was reached without Senate approval, it could be considered void upon the completion of Obama’s second term.


  19. Iran’s “response” to the letter from the 47 senators sounds like it was written by Valerie Jarrett, and the Regime. This usurper said he was going to have the most transparent administration and he was right. It just took awhile to figure out what to look for. The corruption is becoming more obvious every day.

    “Alan Greenspan Warns Of Explosive Inflation: “Tinderbox Looking For A Spark””

    “Greenspan believes that in five years gold will be “measurably higher” than current levels because of the excess liquidity that will eventually be released into the open market. Such an event will undoubtedly lead to riots across America as the general public, woefully unprepared for rapidly rising prices when the pin finally pops the dollar bubble, loses access to affordable critical supplies like food, gas and other resources.

    The collapse of the dollar, an inevitability suggested by Alan Greenspan, will be a game changer that results in the quadrupling of the cost of living for the average American.”

    Here is a petulant and brainless Barack Obama suggesting the 47 U.S. Senators who wrote an “Open Letter” to Iran – warning them essentially that we do not have a dictatorship – are making common cause with the “hardliners” in Iran.

    This is your President who is trying to do a deal with the devil!

    It is Obama who is the one making “common cause” with the radical terrorist regime in Iran.

    The Senators are warning Iran’s radical Islamic regime that we have a Constitution, and even if they get a sweetheart deal from Obama, they have to get support from the U.S. Congress.

    Obama has said he won’t submit any deal to the Senate for ratification, as proscribed by the Constitution.

    The Senators demonstrated with the letter they won’t let Obama get away with acting like a two-bit dictator.

    This deal Obama is cooking up could very well be ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back”….time will tell.

    Time will tell if we finally have an all out dictator in America, or if we have a common criminal usurper who is heading to jail……..

    Lord,… please hurry the process on.

  27. …..As each Nazi leader was convicted at the Nurenberg war crimes trials,and soon thereafter each Nazi was asked if he had any last words. One or two snapped to attention clicked the heels,of their boots and yelled “SIEG HEIL”,which ended with KA PLUNK. It was indeed their LAST WORDS. KA PLUNK is the sound generated by a body stopping after a fall of 6′,and when the BIGHT OF THE GARROTE snaps tight and fractures the neckbones.
    It is my personal belief that such a fate has been earned by a very large number of our elected people,and while it probably will never happen,it is a notion that I believe many of us share. Yet we must sit idly by and watch our SO CALLED leaders negotiate a totally illegal agreement with Iran. Forty seven Senators are CORRECT. If Iran chooses to do anything about it I would remind them that America ALREADY has the capability to turn their little sandpile into a seared destroyed nuclear wasteland,after which it will contain NO LIVING PEOPLE. They will be permanently visiting their ALLAH.

  28. AND NOW……..
    Lil Barry says that he will deal with 47 Senators. har har.I would rather suspect that he has it backwards,,,,,,,,,,47 Senators might turn into a hell of a lot more of them alongside the People of America and deal with Lil Barry. As each day passes more and more people are becoming disillusioned with what they thought was going to be a UTOPIA, where all they have to do is lay around in the burned out remains of their villages,stink,do their drugs,scream “F—YO MAMA”,rob,rape, and murder.Such people sorely need to face ISIS on the battlefield har har, the IDIOT LEVEL GOATHERDERS will win hands down……because they will be up against BRAINLESS MORONS. Yes even IDIOTS possess a tiny pea size brain.
