I was shocked when I read this article from Gallup. Didn't we just hear from the President how rosy things were becoming? The last report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics said the rate dropped to 8.3% and the country was headed to prosperity. What they didn't tell us though was 1.2 million of our fellow citizens dropped out ot the quest to find a job. So,smaller pie of potential employees made for a smaller unemployment number.
We all knew the numbers were bogus from the government. Yet the mainstream media to our chagrin kept reporting the lie of a lower number. Thank goodness for the alternate media and FOX News. Yet, the whole exercise is enough to make a American very sad. I want anyone who wants to work, or needs to work for that matter, to have employment. We don't want to see our fellow citizens suffer, but with a 99 week unemployment check and the uptick of disability claims we get to see the results of years of "cradle to grave" policies instituted by our caring legislators. The economic chickens have come home to roost.
How is it 535 members of Congress can't repair the mess? The fear of not being reelected is so great apparently that bankruptcy is a preferred alternative in our country at the present time. How come we elect people that place our children into involuntary servitude of debt? Do they know something we don't? My guess is the debt will be tossed out at some point because it cannot be repaid and it is undermining our currency and our national security. There is no way we can keep going as we are. When you add the debt and the regulations spewed out by DC and Sacramento, we are all now indentured servants. It seems to me we have fallen and can't get up!
So we all need to question the statistics and the numbers since little faith is available to our government sources. These people gave away three trillion hard earned debt dollars to Solyndra type companies and friends of Barry, Harry and Nancy. That money, errrr, debt, gained nothing for the country. Of course the Federal Reserve has been printing new dollars but in a short while that will lead to terrible inflation and the people will be hosed once more. The smartest people on the planet, well, that is how they describe themselves, have put our country at terrible risk of default. With these high gasoline rices and the cost of food on the rise as well, the folks the politicians say they really care about (they never care about the rich), the middle class and the poor, are actually the people getting trounced by them.
So what to do with all this information? Be sceptical. Question the powers that be. Don.t fall for the slogans of the left. Vote out the people putting you in slavery and replace them with freedom loving Americans. It is easy to do if you really care about the country.
