GallupUnemployment_Nov2012.jpg
Unemployment moves sharply higher after election. “It is unclear what caused the increase in the unemployment rate in November,” says Gallup. Here’s a thought that occurs to us, Gallup: maybe the unemployment rate reported before the election was a dastardly lie to ensure a certain ineffective president’s re-election.

Gosh, it’s almost like the figures were being manipulated to make the Dear Leader look good, isn’t it? That kind of crap only happens in totalitarian shitholes….

Were the correct numbers posted before or after Eric the Red’s DOJ threatened Gallup?

Moving higher? You ain’t seen sh!t. Wait until the market really reacts to Obama & his merry band of economic retards. 15% unemployment could be here things go to plan for the regime.

I’m pretty sure the rate is already 15%. They’ve been lying for four years, fewer people are working than when he took office, and they’ve been simply reducing the size of the workforce to make the rate look lower: http://www.jpattitude.com/120204.php

I think the real rate (U6) around 15%, but I’m talking the offical reported rate.

I’ve seen charts that claim that real unemployment is over 20%. I imagine that the true number is between 15% and 22%. How many “never employeds” are out there living off of the welfare state? I bet millions.

Here is something I should have had in the prior post. Obama met with several of the hosts from MSNBC about the “fiscal cliff”…

http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/12/west-wing-confab-for-liberal-media-151064.html

…this tells me a coulpe of things…

1. That MSNBC is a gov’t sponsered enity. There is ZERO seperation, & the folks at MSNBC will regret this meeting down the road.

2. That Obama is not serious about improving the economy. He does’nt know anyone who understands economics, & therefore, he will never get any good advice. Does’nt matter now, the morons gave him another 4 years, & I hope he sticks it to them where it hurts.

I tend to agree with that sentiment but a lot of Romney voters are going to be dragged under, too.

I know, but we are now in addiction mode. Sad part, you need to hit bottom, & the last 4 years of idiocy were not enough to hit bottom. I am afraid to see what that will be, & I just hope we can recover afterwards.

OhhhhhhKaaaaay, let me type this REAL SLOW so that even a retard like you can read it.
Ron Paul NEVER STOOD A FUCKING SNOWBALLS CHANCE IN HELL OF GETTING THE NOMINATION.
The only person who “cheated” Ron Paul was RON PAUL!
There is simply NO FUCKING WAY that some moron who thinks it is okay to give a bunch of 7th century ragheads ATOMIC WEAPONS is going to get nominated to anything more than a wrap around sports coat.

As I said before, Dr. Paul has some great domestic ideas, however his foreign policy is about as intelligent as the average I.Q. of a turnip.

so good to have verifiable info re: WMD. Seems this validates former POTUS Bush’s actions.
as for me, I considered so damn insane to be viably recognizable as a WMD.

“maybe the unemployment rate reported before the election was a dastardly lie to ensure a certain ineffective president’s re-election.”

Or maybe, the rate actually HAS skyrocketed since the election?
