Is America Awakening To The Real Jobs Picture (11% Unemployment)?

I had to read this liberal’s epiphany and laugh a sad laugh:

But today, the most important sentence isn’t a report on something that just happened, but a fresh look at something that’s been happening for the last three years. In particular, it’s this sentence by the Financial Times’ Ed Luce, who writes, “According to government statistics, if the same number of people were seeking work today as in 2007, the jobless rate would be 11 percent.”

Welcome to the real world Ezra. For your information this has been reported ad naseum on my blog and others FOR MONTHS!:

From December 2011 on November Unemployment:

When you recompute the unemployment rate using the number of employed (140,580,000) out of  the real workforce of 158,500,000, you get a more accurate reflection of the job situation in America.

That actual unemployment rate is 11.3%

From September 2011 on the August unemployment:

The adjusted U3 unemployment for July, based on a nominal workforce size (the red line) was 10.7% – and rising.

From July 2011 on June unemployment:

That red line shows 2.5 million fewer workers in the work force. It also shows that if the work force was at its normal level, we would be at 10.7% unemployment in June – not 9.1%.

From June on July unemployment:

When you recompute the unemployment number (which is those working minus the total workforce pool) the actual, on the ground unemployment is at 10.5%.

From April on March unemployment:

If we recalculate the real unemployment against the nominal labor force (155.9 million verses the current 139.8 million) the real unemployment rate is a staggering 10.3%.

I mean … really? People are just now cluing in inside DC on this???

    Facts don’t apply to them they are DC they make it up as they go and say it is true.

    I think it’s more like the Obama regime’s lies aren’t adequate any longer. It’s hard to cover up twenty million unemployed people for four years.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz says we’re all wrong, unemployment hasn’t gone up under Obama!

    Hi Aj

    What do you think of this charge levelled against Obama about the Drone by whomever Lame Cherry is:

    Treason by B. Hussein Obama
    There once was a time when enemies of America had to actually spy on America to gain intelligence, or at least bribe Bill Clinton and Al Gore to get the secrets.

    That though has all changed in the pattern of B. Hussein Obama. If one notes a pattern in two intelligence transfers, then that is a reality, and a deliberate action.

    We first saw Obama for some reason, fly ultra secret Stealth Helo’s to murder bin Laden’s corpse, whereby that technology was left on the ground for Pakistan to deliver to the Chicoms.
    For those who do not comprehend this, you can not blow up stealth technology, as it is embedded in skin design. One piece is all any enemy would need to gain this structure technology.

    The Soviets used to wear tape on the bottom of their shoes in the 1970’s to pick up dust from US military plants they visited, just to gain analysis of what the Americans were using.
    Obama left a pile of pieces in Pakistan for anyone to pick up…….a technology which cost you hundreds of billions of dollars.

    Once again we see in the downing of the Global Hawk system spy plane in Iran. Obama instead of destroying it at all costs, left this downed craft on location, for the Iranians to gather in.

    Dick Cheney stated America should have destroyed that craft, but yet Obama left this craft to be ……………Obama gave this technology to Iran, and the reason is, to defeat US stealth spy planes, and to gain access to the entire American digital system.
    That plane is not just a flying intelligence system, but it is a flying platform on how to navigate and has on board the most advanced electronics in the world.
    Once again hundreds of billions of dollars in technology just handed over to the Muslim sphere who is in bed with the Russians or Chinese Marxists.

    This is all treason. Barack Obama should be impeached on this event alone, as he swore to uphold and defend America, and all he has done is sabotage, destroy and hand over to America’s enemies thee most advanced technology America has.

    Once again an exclusive only here. Two events make a pattern. That makes treason by B. Hussein Obama.


    I was suspicious about our drone miraculously landing intact in iran.
    I thought it most likely that we put it down there.
    What say you?

    America failed speeech?
