  • 'Kill our pilot and we'll execute ALL your prisoners': Jordan 'says it will hang its ISIS captives'

    Kidnap family members of the ISIS scum and then send them to ISIS one piece at a time.

    Soviets Offer 'How-to' Lesson 1986 and Muslims had kidnapped four Soviets

    the KGB castrated a relative of a prominent Muslim leader and sent the severed organs to the Muslim, with advice that they knew of his other relatives. The remaining three Soviets were freed immediately.

    Give piece a chance. Seriously.

    ... or failing that. A moabist proposal. Purchase MOABs from our U.S. Air Force and use. USAF will never be given permission to use 'em -- except maybe against U.S. citizens opposed to our ruling elite.

    Ms Jan Morgan just might be willing to be the low bidder on that contract. :)

    One of the best 30-or-so minutes on radio since I've been listening beginning in the early 1940s. One caller and one scheduled guest. Dr. Savage's home station KSFO, BTW.

    KSFO Morning Show Podcast It's a four hour show. Pick the hour 30 January 0500 - 0600.

    The caller (27:30) is a military Afghanistan vet who explains the Talleban in concise and precise language. (Hint: there are two kinds of 'em.)

    The scheduled guest Jan Morgan (36:20) owns a shooting range in Arkansas who will not permit Muslims as customers. She describes an incident when she did permit 'em but no more.

  • Obama: My budget is a 'blueprint for success'

    More of this on the way..

    How bad can it get? compare the number of working in 2007 and end of 2014. The population has increased. We still lack millions of jobs. And look at how many stopped looking for jobs! And look at those number of people losing jobs during the years Obama was busy destroying our healthcare system! Look how well the foreign born have done.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources. Comparing Obama to other administrations.

    The data are annualized except when noted otherwise. All are monthly or quarterly. I use the last month / quarter of the year.

    Much of the size of this is taken up by instructions on how to get the sources of the data and much, much more data!

    The numbered column headings are for:

    1. Population (omitted)
    2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands]
    3. Civilian labor force [thousands]. If omitted hover Col 4. to access
    4. Civilian labor force participation rate
    5. Employed [thousands]
    6. Employment-population ratio
    7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands]
    8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]. If omitted hover Col 7. to access
    9. Unemployed [thousands]
    10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands]
    11. Unemployment rate
    12. Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force
    13. Not in labor force [thousands]

    Taking into account the year preceding the Obama administration, here is the first six years of the administration using these spread sheet formulas to compute %'s:
    (2014 value - 2008 value) / 2008 value

    I get

    • Col 2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands] increase
      • Obama 5.9695518%
    • Col 3. Civilian labor force [thousands] increase
      • Obama 0.9920956%
    • Col 4. Civilian labor force participation rate
      • Obama went from 65.9 to 62.8
    • Col 5. Employed [thousands] increase
      • Obama 2.2576011%
    • Col 6. Employment-population ratio
      • Obama went from 61.4 to 59.2
    • Col 7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands] increase
      • Obama* 1.2056036%
    • Col 8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]; increase
      • Obama 7.0483047%
    • Col 9. Unemployed [thousands] increase/decrease
      • Obama -16.166651%
    • Col 10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands] increase/decrease
      • Obama -16.994117%
    • Col 13. Not in labor force [thousands] increase / decrease
      • Obama 15.5826321%
    • pop. Population [thousands] increase
      • Obama 5.0577132%
    • income. Median income increase / decrease (2013
      • Obama -4.5642467%

    *If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration while he concentrated on destroying our healthcare system were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Gee. How come Obama had such big decreases in (Col 9.) Unemployed and (Col 10) Unemployed looking for full-time work? Guess.

    Col 11 and Col 12 are the (phony?) Unemployment rate and Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force, respectively. See table for President Obama's disasters in these categories:

    • labor. Labor force domestic born;
    • Labor force foreign born (hover labor domestic born if column is missing);

    Jobs that Americans won't do? These numbers may prove otherwise.. the millions of Americans in the categories thought to be wholly owned by "undocumented workers."

    Is it a lack of food or ... Can Mr. Poo stop public defecation in India? By Arshiya Khullar, for CNN Updated 1:54 AM ET, Mon April 21, 2014 "Reports say poor sanitation is one of the major contributors to India's rampant child malnutrition numbers -- among the highest in the world.

    "UNICEF's figures show why. More than 28 million children lack access to toilets in their schools. They also face a huge risk of contracting bacterial infections, with over 44 percent of mothers disposing their children's waste in the open. Diarrhoea remains one of the top causes of child deaths in the country, alongside respiratory infections."

    Is that true or not?

    RE: if "a head of lettuce [would be] $5 so be it."

    Actually I've seen similar reports to this one.

    "For a typical household, a 40 percent increase in farm labor costs translates into a 3.6 percent increase in retail prices. If farm wages rose 40 percent, and this wage increase were passed on to consumers, average spending on fresh fruits and vegetables would rise about $15 a year, the cost of two movie tickets. However, for a typical seasonal farm worker, a 40 percent wage increase could raise earnings from $10,000 for 1,000 hours of work to $14,000 — lifting the wage above the federal poverty line."

    The Costs and Benefits of a Raise for Field Workers by Philip Martin a labor economist at the University of California, Davis, is the author, most recently, of “Importing Poverty? Immigration and the Changing Face of Rural America.”

    U.C. Davis is right there in California's multi-billion dollar agriculture just about twelve miles from the Capital.

    I have not read the book. The article seemed to me to be saying what the excerpt states. Though it worries me a little that the Nytimese published the U.C. Davis professor's study.

    BTW I wish more conservative media personalities would use and cite U.S. federal government statistics as Mr. Levin did at the beginning. Let the aging 1960's Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats and their ideological litter occupying buildings in D.C. lie their way out of those numbers.

    . . . the best year for U.S. job growth since 1999, with nearly 3 million jobs added in 2014.

    Maybe so but compare the number of working in 2007 and now (2014). The population has increased. We still lack millions of jobs. And look at how many stopped looking for jobs! And look at those number of people losing jobs during the years Obama was busy destroying our healthcare system! Look how well the foreign born have done.

    It was good to see that the MSM employees mentioned some of that.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources. Comparing Obama to other administrations.

    The data are annualized except when noted otherwise. All are monthly or quarterly. I use the last month / quarter of the year.

    Much of the size of this is taken up by instructions on how to get the sources of the data and much, much more data!

    The numbered column headings are for:

    1. Population (omitted)
    2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands]
    3. Civilian labor force [thousands]. If omitted hover Col 4. to access
    4. Civilian labor force participation rate
    5. Employed [thousands]
    6. Employment-population ratio
    7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands]
    8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]. If omitted hover Col 7. to access
    9. Unemployed [thousands]
    10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands]
    11. Unemployment rate
    12. Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force
    13. Not in labor force [thousands]

    Taking into account the year preceding the Obama administration, here is the first six years of the administration using these spread sheet formulas to compute %'s:
    (2014 value - 2008 value) / 2008 value

    I get

    • Col 2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands] increase
      • Obama 5.9695518%
    • Col 3. Civilian labor force [thousands] increase
      • Obama 0.9920956%
    • Col 4. Civilian labor force participation rate
      • Obama went from 65.9 to 62.8
    • Col 5. Employed [thousands] increase
      • Obama 2.2576011%
    • Col 6. Employment-population ratio
      • Obama went from 61.4 to 59.2
    • Col 7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands] increase
      • Obama* 1.2056036%
    • Col 8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]; increase
      • Obama 7.0483047%
    • Col 9. Unemployed [thousands] increase/decrease
      • Obama -16.166651%
    • Col 10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands] increase/decrease
      • Obama -16.994117%
    • Col 13. Not in labor force [thousands] increase / decrease
      • Obama 15.5826321%
    • pop. Population [thousands] increase
      • Obama 5.0577132%
    • income. Median income increase / decrease (2013
      • Obama -4.5642467%

    *If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration while he concentrated on destroying our healthcare system were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Gee. How come Obama had such big decreases in (Col 9.) Unemployed and (Col 10) Unemployed looking for full-time work? Guess.

    Col 11 and Col 12 are the (phony?) Unemployment rate and Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force, respectively. See table for President Obama's disasters in these categories:

  • Obama's Doubly Deceitful SOTU

    01/22/2015 2:13:11 PM PST · 18 of 28
    WilliamofCarmichael to jazusamo
    Obama takes credit for a growing economy, but if the economy is finally growing — and the evidence is mixed — it's been a long time coming. His vaunted middle-class policies are not helping the middle class, which has suffered under his presidency. He has presided over the slowest recovery in 50 years. Plus, workers at the lower end of the pay scale have seen their average weekly hours dropping significantly — as opposed to higher-paid workers. Though he cites decreasing unemployment, he omits that most of the job gains are among part-time workers and that the unemployment numbers are further misleading because they ignore the enormous number of people who have quit the workforce altogether. The labor participation rate is at its lowest point in decades, and only a quarter of this can be attributed to a change in demographics.

    It's said that no American should be stuck in an entry level minimum wage job.. but for Obama that's the target level for the masses.

    Here's some official stats that confirm what Mr. Limbaugh, et al say.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources. Comparing Obama to other administrations.

    The data are annualized except when noted otherwise. All are monthly or quarterly. I use the last month / quarter of the year.

    Much of the size of this is taken up by instructions on how to get the sources of the data and much, much more data!

    The numbered column headings are for:

    1. Population (omitted)
    2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands]
    3. Civilian labor force [thousands]. If omitted hover Col 4. to access
    4. Civilian labor force participation rate
    5. Employed [thousands]
    6. Employment-population ratio
    7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands]
    8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]. If omitted hover Col 7. to access
    9. Unemployed [thousands]
    10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands]
    11. Unemployment rate
    12. Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force
    13. Not in labor force [thousands]

    Taking into account the year preceding the Obama administration, here is the first six years of the administration using these spread sheet formulas to compute %'s:
    (2014 value - 2008 value) / 2008 value

    I get

    • Col 2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands] increase
      • Obama 5.9695518%
    • Col 3. Civilian labor force [thousands] increase
      • Obama 0.9920956%
    • Col 4. Civilian labor force participation rate
      • Obama went from 65.9 to 62.8
    • Col 5. Employed [thousands] increase
      • Obama 2.2576011%
    • Col 6. Employment-population ratio
      • Obama went from 61.4 to 59.2
    • Col 7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands] increase
      • Obama* 1.2056036%
    • Col 8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]; increase
      • Obama 7.0483047%
    • Col 9. Unemployed [thousands] increase/decrease

    • Col 10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands] increase/decrease

    • Col 13. Not in labor force [thousands] increase / decrease

    • pop. Population [thousands] increase
      • Obama 5.0577132%
    • income. Median income increase / decrease (2013
      • Obama -4.5642467%

    *If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration while he concentrated on destroying our healthcare system were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Gee. How come Obama had such big decreases in (Col 9.) Unemployed and (Col 10) Unemployed looking for full-time work? Guess.

    Col 11 and Col 12 are the (phony?) Unemployment rate and Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force, respectively. See table for President Obama's disasters in these categories:

    I've combined several tables into one. Most of the tables were obtained here: go to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Labor Force Statisics from the Current Population Survey (CPS). Make your selections. I chose quarterly data.

    I took the fourth quarter data from each table and combined them into the main part of the table above. For the year 2014 I took the third quarter data.

    Is Obama lying or does he depend entirely upon his staff of aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats and their ideological litter occupying federal buildings in D.C.? Is Obama too busy with golf, ESPN, White House parties, Air Force One, thousand-dollar dinners. . . .

    Look how many jobs were lost in 2009 as Obama, et al concentrated totally on screwing us with Obamacare.

    Look how many have dropped out over the first six years of Obamanation.

    *If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Notice the job losses while Obama forced Obamacare on us.

    "But surely we can understand a father who fears his son can’t walk home without being harassed."

    But surely anyone can understand these statistics... not Ferguson bullshit. Whites would like to walk home without being murdered, "knocked-out", or both. No mention of us in Obama's the State of You'n Us.

    It is long past the time when facts should be made public to expose the lies and misrepresentations of the Obama-Holder demagogues and the race-grievance industry.The Obama-Holder demagogues, the race-grievance industry, and most employees of the MSM have made this a racial issue. So let's see..

    So adding up the blacks killed by whites (Col 1) and whites killed by blacks(col 2). Surprise.

    Whites outnumber blacks by at least six-to-one BTW. Since Obama has been president the score is whites 1002, blacks 2189.

    .. and surely someone can explain these anomalies; to wit, how come the number of black offenders far exceed the number of black victims while the number of white victims far exceed the number of white offenders. Who's helping the lazy white criminals assault white victims?

    "We believed we could reverse the tide of outsourcing, and draw new jobs to our shores. And over the past five years, our businesses have created more than 11 million new jobs."

    Look how many jobs were lost in 2009 as Obama, et al concentrated totally on screwing us with Obamacare.

    Look how many have dropped out over the first six years of Obamanation.

    Col 7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands] increase

    • Reagan 10.464863%
    • Obama* 1.2056036%

    Notice the job losses while Obama forced Obamacare on us.

  • 27 Facts That Show How The Middle Class Has Fared Under 6 Years Of Barack Obama

    Thanks for posting. We need tons of this.

    #12 At this point, one out of every three adults in the United States has an unpaid debt that is “in collections“.

    I listen to the radio virtually 24/7 and for a long, long time I've heard ad after ad offering help settling debts and taxes.

    There are a few ads offering free bottles of stuff to cure what ails you.. free except for an excuse to get your credit card number to pay "postage and handling" and sign up up for monthly shipments. Don't like the name of the product? Wait it'll be back with another name and claim.

    "Oh yeah. Well I thought of it first.. and me and my buddy Barry have the means to do it.. Obamacare." Bill Ayers

    Bill Ayers planned to murder 25 million Americans!

    But seriously I have a moabist proposal. MOABs wherever the Islamists gather.

    It is long past the time when facts should be made public to expose the lies and misrepresentations of the Obama-Holder demagogues and the race-grievance industry.The Obama-Holder demagogues, the race-grievance industry, and most employees of the MSM have made this a racial issue. So let's see..

    So adding up the blacks killed by whites (Col 1) and whites killed by blacks(col 2). Surprise.

    Whites outnumber blacks by at least six-to-one BTW. Since Obama has been president the score is whites 1002, blacks 2189.

    You will never, never see this in NY Times. If whites wanted to do a "die in" it'd take the entire island.

    RE: "unappreciative or rude"?

    I certainly did not take your comments to be anything like that. I appreciated the question. I'm retired and have plenty of time on my hands -- and boy do they show it!

    The request for suggestions was serious for anyone reading this because I cannot think of anything more at the moment.

    I wanted to have as much as I can to counter entities like Obama-Holder Department of Just Us and Obama's the State of You'n and Us speech.

    Some of the columns for the years 1948-2014 are posted here

    I have those years for all the columns though of course some types of data do not go back that far. I hesitate to post them all at once owing to the size -- and possible damage to scrolling wheels trying to ignore the posting. :)

    Any suggestions for additional important data would be appreciated. If I can find it among federal government sources I'll add it. Thanks.

    RE: "employment had improved “far beyond expectations.”

    That's why I do not bother with the unemployment rate.

    However I have discovered that revisions are quite common and I trust that the SES's and GS's will bend only so far.

    It's amazing the amount of data available. I omitted the sources here because it took some space to "walk through" how you get data. The link to that FR thread is listed at the beginning of my reply above.

    Also I am tired of MSM employees, et al. simply saying this-or-that entity says . . . .

    Where's the brief?

    Obama's administration can take credit for stabilizing the U.S. economy, which is growing again and last year added jobs at the fastest clip since 1999.

    Check column 7 will he mention in his State of You'n Us speech the massive loss of jobs while he was ignoring the economy to force Obamacare on our Republic? If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's job creation numbers are negative.

    The table attempts to bring together numerous federal gov't sources.

    The hyperlinks do not work here. Use this FR thread for the sources to keep this reply from being even bigger. here.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources. Comparing Obama to other administrations.

    The data are annualized except when noted otherwise. All are monthly or quarterly. I use the last month / quarter of the year.

    Taking into account the year preceding the administrations, compare the first six years of Reagan and Obama. Examples: using these spread sheet formulas:
    (1986 value - 1980 value) / 1980 value and
    (2014 value - 2008 value) / 2008 value

    I get

    • Col 2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands] increase
      • Reagan 7.5118707%
      • Obama 5.9695518%
    • Col 3. Civilian labor force [thousands] increase
      • Reagan 10.3730385%
      • Obama 0.9920956%
    • Col 4. Civilian labor force participation rate
      • Reagan from 63.7 to 65.4
      • Obama from 65.9 to 62.8
    • Col 5. Employed [thousands] increase
      • Reagan 11.0483522%
      • Obama 2.2576011%
    • Col 6. Employment-population ratio
      • Reagan from 59 to 60.9
      • Obama from 61.4 to 59.2
    • Col 7. Employed full time (persons who usually work 35 hours or more) [thousands] increase
      • Reagan 10.464863%
      • Obama* 1.2056036%
    • Col 8. Employed part time (persons who usually work less than 35 hours [thousands]; increase
      • Reagan 13.958321%
      • Obama 7.0483047%
    • Col 9. Unemployed [thousands] increase/decrease
      • Reagan 1.9136346%
      • Obama -16.166651%
    • Col 10. Unemployed looking for full-time work [thousands] increase/decrease
      • Reagan -0.3932244%
      • Obama -16.994117%
    • Col 13. Not in labor force [thousands] increase / decrease
      • Reagan 2.4913472%
      • Obama 15.5826321%
    • pop. Population [thousands] increase
      • Reagan 5.6817182%
      • Obama 5.0577132%
    • income. Median income increase / decrease (2013
      • Reagan 5.9159184%
      • Obama -4.5642467%

    If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Gee. How come Obama had such big decreases in (Col 9.) Unemployed and (Col 10) Unemployed looking for full-time work? Guess.

    Col 11 and Col 12 are the Unemployment rate and Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force, respectively. The rest of the columns are:

    • labor. Labor force domestic born;
    • Labor force foreign born (hover labor domestic born if column is missing);
    • Recession. Recessions;
    • GDP. GDP percent Change From Preceding Period in Real Gross Domestic Product (annual rates);
    • PCE. GDP Personal consumption expenditures percentage of GDP, Seasonally adjusted at annual rates;
    • U-6. U-6 unemployment rate;
    • U-2 Job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs (hover U-6. if column is missing, starts in 1967)
    • SSDI Selected Data from Social Security's Disability Program (monthly additions)

    No Reagan years and includes Bush with Obama,

    • 2007 to 2014 domestic born and foreign born labor force increase / decrease
      • domestic born -0.7820343%
      • foreign born 9.1188075%

    Simple addition of GDP percentages divided by six

    • Reagan Obama fourth quarter annualized GDP percentages six-year averages 1981-1986 and 2009-2014
      • Reagan 3.35%
      • Obama 1.80%

    Simple addition of GDP Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) percentage of GDP divided by six, seasonally adjusted at annual rates

    • Reagan Obama fourth quarter annualized percentages six-year averages 1981-1986 and 2009-2014
      • Reagan 2.60%
      • Obama 1.63%

    In a consumer economy this is a critical factor. Consumption for personal goods and services. Thank goodness for Obamacare. :(

  • Obama targets 1% to finance cuts for middle class

    01/18/2015 10:13:55 AM PST · 28 of 29
    WilliamofCarmichael to Citizen Zed
    Mr. Obama's advisers characterized the plan as the next phase in the president's economic message, which he has been promoting over the past two weeks with trips highlighting the nation's financial rebound.

    From another article about the "great" success: "President Obama on Saturday hyped next week’s State of the Union address and said he’ll use the once-a-year speech to tout America’s economic progress over the last six years while also putting pressure on Republicans to end their 'political games.'"

    I'd like to play that game and offer this in response to his State of You'n Us speech. It attempts to bring together numerous federal gov't sources. The only "rebound" of Obama's is on the court.

    The hyperlinks do not work here. Use this FR thread for the sources to keep this reply from being even bigger. here.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources. Comparing Obama to other administrations.

    The data are annualized except when noted otherwise. All are monthly or quarterly. I use the last month / quarter of the year.

    Much of the size of this is taken up by instructions on how to get the sources of the data and much, much more data!

    I tire of "sources" like "government figures show", "Gallop poll numbers..", "the Washington Post.."; and I tire of clicking on a link to find it's only the home page of the site.. so I did some research in preparation for Obama State of You'n Us Speech. Not all of this is meant to compare to Reagan, however. The data I copied and formatted for display here date back to the '40s in some cases. The percentages have the extra decimals to make the computation more accurate.

    Taking into account the year preceding the administrations, compare the first six years of Reagan and Obama. Examples: using these spread sheet formulas:
    (1986 value - 1980 value) / 1980 value and
    (2014 value - 2008 value) / 2008 value

    I get

    • Col 2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands] increase
      • Reagan 7.5118707%
      • Obama 5.9695518%

    If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Gee. How come Obama had such big decreases in (Col 9.) Unemployed and (Col 10) Unemployed looking for full-time work? Guess.

    Col 11 and Col 12 are the Unemployment rate and Unemployment rate of the full-time labor force, respectively. The rest of the columns are:

  • Obama’s State of the Union speech to include $320B tax hike proposal

    01/17/2015 9:13:35 PM PST · 54 of 58
    WilliamofCarmichael to jazusamo
    In an article linked to the posted article President Obama on Saturday hyped next week’s State of the Union address and said he’ll use the once-a-year speech to tout America’s economic progress over the last six years while also putting pressure on Republicans to end their “political games.”

    I'd like to play that game and offer this in response to his State of You'n Us speech. It's long but it attempts to bring together numerous federal gov't sources.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources. Comparing Obama to other administrations.

    The data are annualized except when noted otherwise. All are monthly or quarterly. I use the last month / quarter of the year.

    Much of the size of this is taken up by instructions on how to get the sources of the data and much, much more data!

    I tire of "sources" like "government figures show", "Gallop poll numbers..", "the Washington Post.."; and I tire of clicking on a link to find it's only the home page of the site.. so I did some research in preparation for Obama State of You'n Us Speech. Not all of this is meant to compare to Reagan, however. The data I copied and formatted for display here date back to the '40s in some cases. The percentages have the extra decimals to make the computation more accurate.

    Taking into account the year preceding the administrations, compare the first six years of Reagan and Obama. Examples: using these spread sheet formulas:
    (1986 value - 1980 value) / 1980 value and
    (2014 value - 2008 value) / 2008 value

    I get

    • Col 2. Civilian noninstitutional population [thousands] increase

    • income. Median income increase / decrease (2013
      • Reagan 5.9159184%
      • Obama -4.5642467%

    If you take into account the 2007 number of Employed full time 121621 [thousands] Obama's number would be negative. About all that happened is despite Obama most of the jobs lost in the first few years of his admnistration were recovered by the end of 2014.

    Gee. How come Obama had such big decreases in (Col 9.) Unemployed and (Col 10) Unemployed looking for full-time work? Guess.

    How to find the data source

    Table Information
    Column headings 1 to 13
    I've combined several tables into one. Most of the tables were obtained here: go to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Labor Force Statisics from the Current Population Survey (CPS). Make your selections. I chose quarterly data.

    I took the fourth quarter data from each table and combined them into the main part of the table above. For the year 2014 I took the third quarter data.

  • Why The Unemployment Rate Fell: Dipping Participation Rate

    01/09/2015 11:23:31 AM PST · 17 of 19
    WilliamofCarmichael to SeekAndFind
    more and more people are dropping out of the labor force (shown in the chart below via the decline in the participation rate).

    I have no reason to doubt these articles.. many say what we all know. But I tire of the articles not giving a source -- other than each others articles, so I located sources and combined the several tables into one large table with links to federal government sources. I did not bother to include the unemployment rate we all know how phony that is. But here are a bunch more data to judge Obama economy including decades of the participation rate. It was low, grew steadily from the Reagan years and has been sinking recently.

    This compares the Obama Adminstration economics to past administrations by combining the various tables of actual federal government data into one large table -- you do not have to visit other sites; but links are included.

    I took the fourth quarter data from each table and combined them into the main part of the table above. For the year 2014 I took the third quarter data.

    The NBER does not define a recession in terms of two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP.
    Rather, a recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.

  • VIDEO: Judge Delivers Awesome Smackdown to Attorney’s Failed Race Card Attempt

    01/08/2015 8:43:46 PM PST · 8 of 8
    WilliamofCarmichael to blueyon
    I told the court essentially the same thing as our group of potential jurors completed the interview phase. I asked the judge if I could speak.

    I said that if race was mentioned by the defense counsel I'd assume that he had no defense at all and that I was tired of the "race card." (The black lady sitting next to me began to recoil (as in "shrink back, in fear or repugnance")

    We all left the court room. I was called back. The judge assumed I'd made up my mind that the accused was guilty. I did not argue. Though that was not true. It all depended upon what the defense argued.

    The judge dismissed me from the rest of my obligation. A police officer in the courtroom gave me a nice smile as I left.

    I was simply being honest.

    Barbara "Check bouncer" Boxer. One of the reasons the House Bank was dismantled because of the scam of "checking accounts" for House members. That was in the early 1990's. It's probably back by now and stuffing money into crooked members' accounts as they write bad checks.

  • Does Immigration Harm Working Americans?

    WilliamofCarmichael to Theoria
    I'd like to add some federal government data that includes the immigrant data, participation rate and lots more.

    Getting ready for Obama's State of the Union lies.

    I have attempted to
    • find the appropriate federal government data,
    • format it for print here
    • provide links to the original, and
    • help prove that the Obama Administration and MSM employees are liars.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources.

    NOTE: when quarterly data are used I display the fourth quarter annualized data. So 2014 qtr one and the -2.1 GDP is not shown here, for example. The annualized data for 2014 qtr three are shown for the year 2014.

    The NBER does not define a recession in terms of two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP.
    Rather, a recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.

    You knew of course that I was just kidding (Headline?).. but it's more likely that the new Congress would go after the Tea Party before it dare to take a look at Islamists or the black power campaign to arm-up against whites. Back in the '60s when blacks were ten percent of the population the black power groups shouted "Take ten!"

  • Correcting the Revisionists on the Reagan Record

    01/06/2015 5:25:10 AM PST · 6 of 11
    WilliamofCarmichael to Kaslin
    Reagan's policies led to the largest period of economic growth to date in the history of the nation. The economy was nearly a third larger at the conclusion of the Reagan years than at the beginning, and real median family income grew by $4,000, as opposed to almost no growth during the Ford-Carter years.

    Let Michael Kinsley debate these federal government facts.

    I think these federal government numbers support those two facts and the other facts in the article about the Reagan Administration.

    Employment status and nativity. Then

    • select Employed under Foreign born, 16 years and over and
    • Employed under Native born, 16 years and over

    Scroll down to "Retrieve Data"

    The data that I include above are from the month of December except for 2014 where November is the last month with data available.

    ***Three: For the Census Bureau income data go here. Choose "Consumer Income Reports (P60)" then choose "P60-249 Income and Poverty in the United States: 2013" (pdf file).

    Table Information
    I've combined several tables into one. Most of the tables were obtained here: go to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Labor Force Statisics from the Current Population Survey (CPS). Make your selections. I chose quarterly data.

    I took the fourth quarter data from each table and combined them into the main part of the table above. For the year 2014 I took the third quarter data and marked the data with (III).

    National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc. Cambridge MA 02138 US Business Cycle Expansions and ContractionsLink from BLS SPOTLIGHT ON STATISTICS THE RECESSION OF 2007 – 2009

    The NBER does not define a recession in terms of two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP.
    Rather, a recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.

    (I don't think that I've posted this here before. I'm retired. I have lots of time on my hands.. and boy do they show it.)
    This is the month of the State of the Union. Get ready for an avalanche of lies and bullshit from the Obama Administration and MSM employees.

    I have attempted to

    • find the appropriate federal government data,
    • format it for print here
    • provide links to the original, and
    • help prove that the Obama Administration and MSM employees are liars.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) and other federal sources.

    What do these government figures show? For me they document some economic truths with links to the original federal government data that will easily refute the lies of the Democratic Party President. cont'd below

    See below for table information.

    The employment-population ratio measures the economy's ability to provide jobs for a growing population. The employment-population ratio is a measure of economic performance that answers the question, "What proportion of the working-age population is employed?" The ratio tracks "net changes in the number of jobholders relative to changes in the size of the population. Because the population is continually growing, a rise in employment may or may not appear as an increase in the employment-population ratio, while a decrease in employment will always be reflected as a decline in the ratio."From here.

    [End]

    The civilian labor force participation rate -the proportion of the working-age population that is in the labor force, either working or looking for work - functions well as an indicator of secular trends; it has risen more or less steadily since the mid-1960's, as growing participation among women has more than offset declines among men. The overall participation rate, however, is difficult to interpret during recessionary penods, because it demonstrates no established cyclical pattern; the labor force can either expand or contract in response to worsening economic conditions, as the unemployment of one family member may spur another to look for a job or may influence others to refrain from entering an unpromising labor market. From here.

    [End]

    The unemployment rate. [The concept of unemployment is fuzzy.] To be counted as unemployed, a person

    • must be without a job,
    • be available for work, and
    • have actively sought a job sometime during the month; or
    • must be on layoff expecting to be recalled.

    To be counted as employed, a person

    • must have worked at least 1 hour during the week for pay or profit (or at least 15 hours as an unpaid worker in a family business), or
    • have a job but be temporarily absent from it.

    In other words, being employed is an observable experience while being unemployed often lacks that same concreteness. [Plus] The employment-population ratio is calculated using a much larger numerator and denominator than the jobless rate and is thus subject to less statistical error.From here.

    Recession National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc. Cambridge MA 02138 US Business Cycle Expansions and ContractionsLink from BLS SPOTLIGHT ON STATISTICS THE RECESSION OF 2007 – 2009

    The NBER does not define a recession in terms of two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP.
    Rather, a recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.

    [End]

    There are tons of data available.. and yes more than the tables are needed; for example, government manipulates the unemployment rate, the CPI, and the GDP. So we have to look to see what their latest trick is.

    I've combined several tables into one. Most of the tables were obtained here: go to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Labor Force Statisics from the Current Population Survey (CPS). Make your selections. I chose quarterly data.

    I took the fourth quarter data from each table and combined them into the main part of the table above. For the year 2014 I took the third quarter data and marked the data with (III).

    Examples

    • from November 1982 (IV qtr) to March(I qtr) 2001 there was one brief recession;
    • from Reagan's year 1981 the "not in labor force" increased from 61,933,000 to more than 92,000,000 in 2014 (of course the population increased and I think the percentages remained about the same);
    • in December 2007 there were 123,524,000 native-born workers and 22,810,000 foreign-born workers but by November 2014
    • there were 122,558,000 and 25,108,000, respectively;
    • there were 118,281,000 full-time employment in December 2008 and 25,836,000 part-time jobs but by November 2014
    • there were 118,797,000 and 27,724,000 respectively; while
    • Reagan's first year (December 1981) full-time employment grew from 82,799,000 to 91,297,000 by December of the sixth year (1986);
    • I noticed that temporary jobs started to increase during the Clinton years.

    That last point I noticed because I remember people saying things like "Yeah I know Clinton created lots of jobs.. I have three of them."

    I recall also that

    • the term "jobless recovery" (from the 1990 - 1991 recession) was invented to describe the first few of years of Clinton;
    • (1993)99,952,000 full-time and 21,282,000 part-time
    • (1994) 101,003,000 full-time and 23,465,000 part-time

    Notice the big jump in part-time employment. Actually the first three years of Reagan had a similar pattern.

    But what happen in 1994 followed by a big increase in jobs in 1995 and beyond? Ans: the election of a Republican Congress and that the Nation's first 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats' administration backed off trying to "Bring it all down, man" so quickly.

    For Reagan the first year of increases in full-time employment (almost five million new jobs) was 1984 and it continued on from there.

    Obama claims creating ten(?) million jobs.. which brings to mind what I said about Clinton's jobs above.. only for Obama's ten million apparently temptorary jobs we say, "Yeah he created millions of jobs.. I've had seven of them while they lasted."

  • Oil glut saved Obama from himself

    WilliamofCarmichael to CedarDave
    Oilmen, not the government, returned hundreds of billions of dollars to American consumers. They, not Ivy League experts and Wall Street grandees, kick-started the economy where federal subsidies had failed to. They, not the policies of the Obama administration, weakened our enemies.

    Now maybe the American consumers' contribution to the GDP just might come up to the level of the real recoveries of Reagan, BJ, and GeorgeW. Reagan 5.06 (in a couple of years) and Obama 2.21 (with frackers' doing the work, in six years)

    Modern two-term presidents' best years of recession recoveries (Republicans* did it in the first term. Surprise.)

    * There was a recession March to November 2001See Recession reference below

    This is the month of the State of the Union. Get ready for an avalanche of lies and bullshit from the Obama Administration and MSM employees.

    I have attempted to

    • find the appropriate federal government data,
    • format it for print here
    • provide links to the original, and
    • help prove that the Obama Administration and MSM employees are liars.

    I recall that controversial* Art Bell did not use screeners. Dr. Savage should know that; to wit, a wiki article confirms:"Fans regard Bell as a master showman, noting that he calls his show 'absolute entertainment' . . . Bell was one of only a few talk show hosts who did not screen incoming calls [while in the Philippines he did use screeners to avoid listeners having to call there directly, it's said]."

    I do not recall any harassing calls but of course the show was time-delayed and maybe that's why.

    I like the no screener idea but I cannon imagine the lefist pukes not flooding Savage's phone.

    *Bell riled BJ over Waco and other atrocities of the Clintons.

    Hurrah for Dr. Savage for his reporting the latest BJ scandal. I've missed others so far today so I do not know if they talk about. I think Bill Cunningham mentioned it (Sunday night) but he did not go further.

    I like his "unprotected" format.

    But I think he should know that Limbaugh did similar decades ago. Limbaugh did not bypass the screener but he did speak of protected and unprotected talk. When in protected mode he said he put a condom on the microphone.

    Similar idea but different procedures.

    I recall that Art Bell never used a screener.

    This is the first of three parts of our year-end conversation . . . .

    The next one is BS about race relations. I've got the federal government's own figures proving that's bullcrap. Especially telling is that the Obama-Holder Dept of Just Us stopped releasing National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) interracial crime stats (Table 42) showing black-on-white crime. At least the last time I saw it in their NCVS was 2008.

    Will the third talk be about jobs?

    Yes Obama has created millions of jobs.. I've had 17 of them. While they lasted. I'm down to just three of the jobs until they run out soon. :)

    This is leading up to the State of the Union speech, it's time to start preparing for the lies and bullshit.

    You can bet the bullcrap will be flying during the State of the Union speech. Here's government figures about that.

    Comparing Reagan and Obama administrations: given the total nonfarm seasonally adjusted employed in the month before the respective administrations began.. how do they compare? (Green means numbers grew by five percent or more.)

    The total nonfarm seasonally adjusted employed data came from the source. I used a spread sheet to compute the percentage difference between the current month's total nonfarm seasonally adjusted employed and the total nonfarm seasonally adjusted employed in the month before the respective administration began.

    I think I referenced the article he quoted and posted this reply a year or so ago:
    Savage has got to reject his self-imposed "Fairness Doctrine."

    To wit, . . . Cumulus will promote personalities like Michael Savage, who . . . has tempered his performance amid concerns over being hyper-partisan to a more populist presentation, using softer subjects and more humor.

    It is our duty to

    Void the bowels of Washington, D.C. 2014-2016

    I am glad that Dr. Savage did not impose a "Fairness Doctrine" either by his choice or the Dickey brothers'.

    Also.. my exhortation to void the bowels of Washington must have been what millions were thinking also. We tried.

    I feel brokenhearted
    we tried
    but Washington, D.C. only farted.

  • As Economy Strengthens, Obama’s Popularity Is Likely to Rise

    WilliamofCarmichael to SeekAndFind
    The latest estimate shows G.D.P. grew at a rate of 5 percent in the third quarter, the fastest rate since 2003. See below. The five percent is an annual rate. The GDP did not increase five percent in the third quarter.

    Credit the Nytimese employee he did admit that a fellow employee reported that Democratic Party is divided over how it should handle the issue, with some officials fearing a backlash if the president or his allies celebrate an economy that is still leaving millions of Americans behind.

    And no mention of Bush's fault. Wow! But it seems that "Obama’s approval ratings" are the major concern and how many Republicans will warm to Mr. Obama as [people are fooled into believing] the economy improves. So much for the millions of Americans left behind.. how can we fool them is the aging 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats' and their ideological litters' in government, the MSM, universities, and Hollywood only real concern.

    See that weak 2.21% Personal Consumption below and a comparison to other presidents.

    Table 1.1.2. Contributions to Percent Change in Real Gross Domestic Product ; Seasonally adjusted at annual rates Quarterly data from 1969 To 2014 Bureau of Economic Analysis Data published December 23, 2014.

    The percentages are annual.

    You have to convert that five percent third quarter 2014 GDP rate that MSM employees are cooing about to a quarterly rate. So for example one method I found on the Internet is to
    • compute (5/100)+1 = 1.05; then
    • compute 1.050.25 -1 = 0.012272234.
    .

    So it's a quarterly 1.2% that the MSM employees are going wild about and cheering their 'bama.

    The following is my contribution (it was not presented this way by BEA):

    It is long past the time when facts should be made public to expose the lies and misrepresentations of the Obama-Holder demagogues and the race-grievance industry.The Obama-Holder demagogues, the race-grievance industry, and most employees of the MSM have made this a racial issue. So let's see..

    So adding up the blacks killed by whites (Col 1) and whites killed by blacks(col 2). Surprise.

    Table 1.1.2. Contributions to Percent Change in Real Gross Domestic Product ; Seasonally adjusted at annual rates Quarterly data from 1969 To 2014 Bureau of Economic Analysis Data published December 23, 2014.

    The percentages are annual.

    You have to convert that five percent third quarter 2014 GDP rate that MSM employees are cooing about to a quarterly rate. So for example one method I found on the Internet is to
    • compute (5/100)+1 = 1.05; then
    • compute 1.050.25 -1 = 0.012272234.
    .

    So it's a quarterly 1.2% that the MSM employees are going wild about and cheering their 'bama.

    The following is my contribution (it was not presented this way by BEA):

    Two term presidents best GDP. Year and quater. Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama.
