FIGURES DON'T LIE BUT LIARS FIGURE NO.2 - So Said Mark Twain

This is a partial repeat of a blog written on December 7, 2009 albeit, with a new twist.  BTW, when I wrote that blog my back was "out".  It is "out" again.  BOO!

The bold, black headlines on that date informed the American public that UNEMPLOYMENT RATE EXPLODES!  The unemployment rate had edged up from 6.5% to 6.7%, the average of the previous 50 years.  THE INTENT WAS TO BASH THE SO-CALLED BUSH ECONOMY.

Today's unemployment news is that the rate dropped from 9.2% to 9.1%.  BIG BLACK HEADLINES?  Yes!  UNPLOYMENT EASES or maybe UNEMPLOYMENT DIPS.  There was nil headlines stating that the dip came from a growth in "discouraged" workers who are no longer seeking a job.

THE PRINT MEDIA IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE WITH DWINDLING READERSHIP AND PROFITS!  Why?  Two reasons, the vast majority of Americans are not as stupid as the print media thinks and because of the excellent reporting of Fox News and tell-it-like-it-is radio talk show hosts.

FLYS IN THE BUTTERMILK, SHOO, SHOO, SHOO!
We owe a lot to the Bill O'Reilly and Laura Ingraham types.  THEY ARE THE FLYS IN OBAMA'S BUTTERMILK!   Thanks folks!

FIGURES DON'T LIE BUT LIARS FIGURE
You would think that after two years in office President Obama would get a clue that his vast, overspending while raising taxes is not the way to get the economy going again.  You would think so but such is not the case.

  Were it not for the Tea Party influence on the House of Representatives, President Obama would still be increasing the spending and taxation.  He tried you know, before he got his tail caught in the tea party trap!

SIMPLE, STRAIGHT FORWARD MESSAGE
GIVE THIS SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT, FOLKS THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE A BOLD BLACK HEADLINE.




God bless you and yours.  God bless the USA.
