Don't Snow Job Us!

As the timeless saying tells us, "There are lies, damned lies and statistics." So it goes with the jobs numbers. Boy, are we ever being jobbed on that data. It's much worse than we know.

Eight and a half percent unemployment, and the economy is back. So we were told last week. The administration's economic policies are working.  The media have so dumbed down our expectations that this is supposed to be good news.  It wasn't three years ago when unemployment was at 5% and we were told we were in a recession.  Told you that in this political season, with the mainstream media in bed with the establishment politicians, truth would be the first casualty. It is being killed by the death of a thousand cuts.

I wish more people would WAKE UP!!! Pull their heads out of you know where and realize that we are in deep, deep trouble as a nation. I don't know when, but the next financial disaster will make 2008 look like a birthday party.

Obama was destined to fail because he wasn't prepared for the job at hand. Look at his advisers. Secretary of the treasury, a man who couldn't do his own taxes using turbo tax? He said he was going to change our nation , and he has certainly done that. Unfortunately it was a change for the worse. A man raised with a socialist idea of how the economy works, doesn't. Lets face it , He is a socialist. He wants us to be more like Europe. Is he kidding? President Obama started out with a handicap. His parents and grand parents were socialistic thinkers. He has surrounded himself with these types. Look at his pastor of 20 years. Look at Bill Ayers. The list goes on. You are who you associate with. It is time to change the direction our county is going in. We cant keep raising the national debt, that is only kicking the can down the road. We now owe more than we make. You know what happens when that is the case. Can you say taking a wheel barrow loaded with money, too go shopping?

Nothing wrong with my vision, I have an excellent Opthamalogist, thanks for your concern though Theresa! By the way, it's "MA", not "Ma"- which you either chose to ignore or didn't (really) see. Rather how we got into this situation with our two-party system, both equally responsible. No clean hands, only some that are dirtier than others.

MA , whats the difference, it isn't your name? Don't get so feisty about a pseudonym.

Thanks for proving the point I made indirectly above, Francis. You interpreted "MA" as you chose to, not as it was intended. It is not, by the way a pseudonym, they are my initials which is what my friends call me so, yes, it is my name. These are the semantics that keep the focus misdirected and Americans divided. We need to work together even if we don't share the same philosophies to a productive, prosperous (for all!), united America. May God grant us the patience, wisdom and clarity to do so.
