I get a chuckle from the lamestream media when they spin the idea of losing 345,000. Well it is a lot less than the 504,000 the previous month! Put on a happy face, dangit! We are learning to measure quite differently in The Era of Brown Underwear.
One can only imagine what the headlines would be if we were in a Bush administration. What's that, Chicken Little?
Do you really need more evidence about the snakelike nature of Obama, when he gives us the term "saved," as part of job "creation?" Talk about a slickster selling elixir! He pisses on us, then tells us it's raining.
I was under the mistaken idea that adding jobs was good news, not losing jobs. However, in the lexicon of Obama, "save" is the new "add!" And in the lamestream media, a loss is really a win!
504,000 jobs losses in April, 345,000 jobs losses in May, unemployment at 9.4% (they said it would top off at 8%), over 6,000,000 Americans out of work—2.9M of those jobs this year!—and here is what Obama said in Reuters:
"…it[stimulus] created or saved 150,000 in the first 100 days. Republicans questioned the figure and noted that Biden said on May 13 over 150,000 jobs had been saved or created in the act's first 77 days."
Don't let the truth be a deterrent to Obama's agenda. Obama believes that if he keeps saying it, eventually people will believe it. Unemployment has risen from 6% under Bush to over 9.4% under Obama, but he has "saved" jobs! Incredulous— "Change we can be brainwashed to believe in."
I've stopped asking when Americans who voted for Obama will either wake up from their comas or get back on the meds. It has simply become a rhetorical question and quite redundant. However it is high time that those of us who were never entranced by Obama's "words" start really calling him out more vigorously on his blatant lying.
"[Obama] announced he was ramping up some of the stimulus spending so he could "save or create" an additional 600,000 jobs this summer. These numbers come in the context of an earlier Obama promise that his recovery plan will "save or create three to four million jobs over the next two years."
At this rate, between creating and saving jobs, we will have all of America working, as well as our illegals, and finally reached what Marx described as Utopia—also known as communism. Because folks at this rate of job "saving," there will be no private sector jobs left to save.
To do this we chronicle all the jobs that are presently "saved," which are all the jobs in America. Then as the job numbers are reported, we count those that Obama has "unsaved."
For example in March, Obama would have saved 40,000,000 jobs, of which 504,000 of them became "unsaved" in April. Then another 345,000 became unsaved in May, and so on.
By my count, Obama has "unsaved" 2.9M jobs, since he took over. This way, all of us who have jobs left will know who to thank. The better question may be how Americans will not want to thank The Big Zero. Best guess is 9.4% of Americans and counting.
That's my rant!
