Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics
Mark Twain once said, “there are lies, damn lies and statistics”. By now you have read the new Obama Administration’s job numbers telling America that the jobless rate has now dropped below 8% to an astonishing 7.8%. As Josef Stalin once said, “it’s not the votes that count, it who counts the votes” that really matters. The Bureau of Labor Statistics released yesterday their “Household Jobless” numbers that is nothing more than a survey, claiming that more Americans are now employed than could possibly be a fact. Just forget for a moment that two of the leading economists for the Bureau of Labor Statistics happen to be big Obama contributors.
Friends, it has never been more important to keep educating the voters of our great nation on the facts behind the headlines. The “U6” number (the real unemployment number hidden by this Administration) places the unemployment and under employment number at more than 14%! This coincides with the 35,000+ loss of manufacturing jobs in September and tells the real story behind the left wing media’s drooling over this false report. We have to keep fighting for the truth.
November 6th will be here soon and if we are to be successful in removing the greatest threat to our nation’s future, we need your help. We understand that time are difficult with soaring gas and food prices, which by the way have been conveniently removed from the index of inflation, but it is clear that another four years of an Obama Presidency will be much more unbearable. We have become the voice of “We the People” because we do not rely on donations from billionaires and special interests. Your contributions of whatever you can afford has allowed us pool our resources together to make the voice of everyday Americans matter in the world of politics.
