“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

The horses’ asses in the White House are not telling you the truth about the economy and real jobs situation.

The horses’ asses in the media are not either.

But the truth cannot be hidden forever.

Look at the suffering around you.

I am constantly hearing reports of local and national food banks running out of food and the sharp increase in demand.

It stands to reason that with the near depression level jobs market that we have that people would be forced to stand in bread and soup lines.

From the Associated Press August 13, 2015.

“FOOD BANKS STRUGGLE TO MEET SURPRISING DEMAND”

“Food banks across the country are seeing a rising demand for free groceries despite the growing economy, leading some charities to reduce the amount of food they offer each family.

U.S. food banks are expected to give away about 4 billion pounds of food this year, more than double the amount provided a decade ago, according to Feeding America, the nation’s primary food bank network. The group gave away 3.8 billion in 2013.

While reliance on food banks exploded when the economy tanked in 2008, groups said demand continues to rise year after year, leaving them scrambling to find more food.

“We get lines of people every day, starting at 6:30 in the morning,” said Sheila Moore, who oversees food distribution at The Storehouse, the largest pantry in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and one where food distribution has climbed 15 percent in the past year.

Across the country in Gloucester, Massachusetts, The Open Door food pantry has given away 7.6 percent more food this summer than last, said the organization’s executive director, Julie LaFontaine.”

“James Ziliak, who founded the Center for Poverty Research at the University of Kentucky, said the increased demand is surprising since the economy is growing and unemployment has dropped from 10 percent during the recession to 5.3 percent last month.

However, many people who have found jobs are working only part-time or for low wages, and others have stopped looking for work.”

“People who have low-wage jobs, who aren’t receiving regular raises, are finding those earnings stretched thin,” Ziliak said.

The drop in food stamp rolls by nearly 2.5 million people from recession levels could be contributing to the food bank demand, he said, because people who no longer qualify for the government aid may still not earn enough to pay their bills.

From the US Census Bureau.

“One in Five Children Receive Food Stamps, Census Bureau Reports”

“The number of children receiving food stamps remains higher than it was before the start of the Great Recession in 2007, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual Families and Living Arrangements table package released today.

The rate of children living with married parents who receive food stamps has doubled since 2007. In 2014, an estimated 16 million children, or about one in five, received food stamp assistance compared with the roughly 9 million children, or one in eight, that received this form of assistance prior to the recession.”

From Citizen Wells August 10, 2015.

“Citizen Wells has been warning you.

All of those so called job gains under Obama, many of which are part time, low paying jobs, don’t add up to employment for US born citizens.

Just yesterday we reported that the monthly jobs added don’t add up at all, unless you use Orwellian math.

“Let’s examine the latest jobs report.

“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 215,000 in July, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.3 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.”

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm

For the rest of the data we will access the same US Labor Dept. Historical tables.

Change from June to July:

Total employed + 101,000

White – 62,000 (you read that right, minus)

Black + 33,000

Asian + 21,000

Hispanic – 27,000

See anything wrong with that?

215,000 jobs added???

It gets worse.

Change from January to July:

Regardless of which revision to the monthly jobs report that you use, if you add up the mythical jobs added from February to July 2015 you get well over 1.2 million.

How does this square with the employment changes from the US Labor Dept?

Total employed + 639,000

White – 155,000 (you read that right, minus)

Black + 463,000

Asian + 211,000

Hispanic + 69,000

See any problems there?”

Using the same US Labor Dept. Historical charts that the Washington Examiner used below, you will find that under the first 6 years of Obama, 75 percent of employment gains went to Hispanics.

From the Washington Examiner August 7, 2015.

“Jobs shock: 100% of female employment gains taken by foreigners since 2007

All of the employment gains among women since the recession hit in December 2007 have been taken by foreigners, even at a time when the numbers of U.S.-born women surged more than 600,000, according to new federal statistics.”

    “Despite some improvements in economic conditions, food hardship and need for food assistance remain relatively high. In May 2015, about one in seven people in the U.S. received SNAP and about one in nine were unemployed or underemployed, according to USDA data and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics U-6 measure. A FRAC analysis using the Healthways Well-Being survey collected by Gallup showed that 17 percent of respondents did not have enough money to feed themselves or their family in 2014.”

  2. People living in America are provided a very valuable education benefit free of charge paid for by the American taxpayer. The American taxpayer agrees to fund this from their hard earned wages because they want the people around them to be educated, not ignorant morons, and they believe they will benefit from having skilled educated people contributing to the economic system that they are part of.
    Many people in America don’t take advantage of this benefit. They don’t pay attention in the classroom, assuming they even make it to class. They focus on playing games instead of learning. They don’t put in the work needed to really learn what is being taught. They basically waste this expensive benefit.
    Upon graduation from high school, assuming they even graduate, they have poor reading skills, poor comprehension skills, poor understanding of basic mathematics, science, finance, and other important subject areas.
    Having not taken advantage of this education benefit, they are not in a position to continue their education to gain even more knowledge and skills. Their knowledge and skill level is worth almost nothing in the free market economy. They have very little to contribute.
    The reason many can’t find jobs is because the jobs for people with little to no knowledge or skill are being filled by people from third-world societies who work in these jobs for the level of pay and benefits that fit that skill level. Americans with little to no knowledge or skill demand to be paid much higher wages and benefits. They don’t have skills to justify this demand. They just demand it. Uneducated immigrants flood America and they take “the jobs Americans won’t do”.
    We could fix this. Not by putting up tariffs or renegotiating trade agreements. We need to fix the education system so that it motivates children to learn instead of to play. We need to stop using the education system as a free daycare service. We need reform the education system. Brick and mortar needs to be replaced by on-line education. Resources and focus must be returned to pure education and playtime needs to be removed from the school system.
    I believe the taxpayer can provide a great education in far less than the twelve or more years provided now. These calls for taxpayer pre-K and college are going in the wrong direction.
    I believe the taxpayer can provide a great education through on-line services instead of using expensive buildings, classrooms, and teachers. These artifacts of the pre-Internet age are unnecessarily expensive. They are a waste of money. They are just kept to provide free daycare and game playing.
    If we can use education to make more of our population high-value contributors, we can solve the poverty and underemployment problems.

    ……….in reality the tap root of America’s problem is not the Soetoro wackey house. America’s most serious problem is the overall deterioration of the moral, and spiritual demeanor which was the main underpinning of what we once was, and who we once was. Everything else sprouted from that supporting frame. Yes the twisted, perverted, and otherwise deviant leadership has contributed to the moral and spiritual decay. In virtually ALL instances there is a definite, and proportionate correlation with the now declining American character, and it runs the gamut from childhood to adult. It is interspersed throughout all walks of American life. The deterioration is REAL, and the more it accelerates the less everybody seems to care.
    The un employment will most likely get much worse before there is ever any improvement. I personally think that it will take either an actual famine in America, or something very close to it before anybody even begins to wake up. The case has always been proven to be “YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW”. When an American business can no longer compete at the marketplace it usually ends up being closed, bought out, or taken offshore…….all of which puts people on the street. THERE IS NO QUICK FIX! The economics controlling America has been escalating for decades. Ever so slowly America has become PRICED OUT OF THE MARKET, thanks in part to organized labor, in part to excessive corporate taxation, and in part because of burgeoning government environmental controls Soon there will be NO BUSINESS OR MANUFACTURING DONE IN AMERICA, and there will be NO JOBS AT ALL NOT EVEN PART TIME. Americans have never learned to live within their income. When people WANT MORE,AND MORE,AND MORE, it is NOT the fault of their employer………….yet they blame their employer, then they want to strike against him, or shut him down………after which NOBODY HAS AN EMPLOYER. REALLY STUPID REASONING! All because people can’t control their spending habits, the government can’t control it’s taxation, and the big government imbeciles who believe they need to make everything PERFECT try to do just that!.

    While I agree with nearly all that you said, I still believe that there is nothing wrong with the basic idea of a teacher in a classroom with 30 pupils. In actuality teaching in, and of itself has changed for the worse. What significance does CONDOMS have to a 1st grader, and what the hell is wrong when a female, and/or male teacher sees fit to have sex with a student? Therein lies a big part of the reason why our educational system has turned into a circus side show. Such teachers should be severely dealt with. I spent my grade school years(1930s) in being REQUIRED to pay attention in class, otherwise the “BOARD OF EDUCATION” WAS QUICKLY BRANDISHED……..but alas now we dare not even think of such a thing………..but “yeah” sexually attacking a youngster seems now to be OK with most school boards. Something seriously wrong with this picture! Fortunately the things which I pointed out are still the exception, but NOT THE RULE. However it does put a spotlight upon the fast growing problem of deteriorating teacher conduct.
