If the economy were really doing well, employment would be going up, not the value of economically meaningless chips on the Wall Street craps table.
There are less jobs now in America than existed in 1979 thanks to Obama. Not only that, but they are much worse jobs... Walmart jobs, McDonalds burger flipper jobs...
Don't believe those phony unemployment numbers that the government and lapdog media are trying to sell you. Look at the truth - the "Labor Force Participation Rate" - this counts up all working age adults and then counts how many of them are working. Simple and straightforward without the lies and manipulation.
OBAMA: Destroyer of 4.5million jobs
That is how politicians solve problems, by hiding them.
When you count up unemployment, it is a "TWO STATE" condition - a person may be either:
So when the stop counting someone as unemployed, by default the liars count that person as employed after six months.
If they wanted to tell the truth, they would count them as employed when they actually found a job.
That's why you can only trust the Labor Force Participation Rate.
No problem. The economy just grew 3% through the magic of adding “intangibles”...
Who is John Galt ?
And to think, I was having a relatively GOOD Day!
Back to the bomb shelter.
For proof of this, just look at how much the price of oil has changed in the last 15 years. Oil was around $15/barrel in the late 1990s and has been as high as $140 in recent years. Does anyone out there really believe that the demand for oil has increased ten-fold in the last 15 years, or that the supply today is around one-tenth of what it was 15 years ago? LOL.
