Why believe your LYING eyes

When you can believe the LYING media, instead.
The nation's unemployment rate dropped to a 4 1/2 year low [and] employees' average hourly earnings climbed to $16.41 in January, up 0.4 percent from December.
Are these people on crack? Don’t they read the news?
And this list is by no means exhaustive!

Either these people are hopelessly stupid, or they think that WE are.
"The economy fired on all cylinders in January," said economist Sung Won Sohn, president of Hanmi Bank.

"There's no question we're getting back to better days for job creation," said Ken Mayland, economist at ClearView Economics.

Payrolls grew by 193,000 in January, up from 140,000 in December.
Yeah, right. Tell that to the 24,175 applicants who were turned down by Wal-Mart last Friday!

So, why are these people lying through their teeth? Cui bono?
Americans have expressed anxiety about the economy, polls indicate. President Bush, coping with relatively low job-approval ratings, is seeking to ease those fears.

"I think keeping taxes low is an important way to make sure this economy continues to grow." The president wants Congress to make his tax cuts permanent.
The President's plan: convince us that his dumb-ass tax cuts for the rich are increasing jobs, just long enough to make the tax cuts permanent.

But who else stands to gain from these made-to-order employment figures?

While wage growth is good for workers, big increases -- if sustained -- would be troubling to investors and economists who fret about inflation.

To fend off inflation, the Federal Reserve on Tuesday boosted a key interest rate to its highest point in nearly five years.
What a crock of shit. These people don't worry about inflation. WE worry about INFLATION. They worry about increased labor costs, which hurt their bottomline.

But, they throw in the word INFLATION to scare the crap out of us and convince us that they're looking out for our best interests.

Sure, they say. We (the Fed and its moneylending cohorts) are increasing interest rates; and that's going to take away your (alleged) gains in wages. But, it's for your own good.

How else are we going to 'fight' inflation? It's your fault! Your wages are inflating the cost of products!

Duh, okay, you say.

Now, how would you like your rate hike, lying down or bending over?

It has been conclusively proven that every single thing that the corporate media and U.S. government does or says or expects us to believe is a blatent lie. No big news there. My philosophy is to listen to the horse shit that they spew and then twist it 180 degrees to decipher the truth. It works great!

American Math skills are among the lowest on the planet.

All you have to do is look at how much gold, silver and platinum prices have climbed in the past year to know that a lot of people know the economy is not improving.

I had heard a snippet on the news, awhile back, that the US government was not going to count the Katrina displacees in the unemployment figures because that would artificially inflate percentages; as this was a result of a natural disaster and therefore temporary, as well as the chaotic landscape making employment statistics hard to confirm. However, they seem to have no compunctions about counting the jobs created rebuilding New Orleans against those same figures. This must be some sort of New Math.

Although I agree with all of your statistical material, and the premise of the article, I object to your defaming crack smokers.
They are far more intelligent than the average American, these days.

Unemployment is people activly looking for jobs right now. Those layoffs in your quoted articles are for 2-3 years from now. I am being laid off by Kraft, and I have a job guarantee untill 2008 October. We are not hiring new workers and promoting from within. So yes we are cutting 8000 jobs, but not new jobs. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

Joe and Jane Dumbell taxpayers and "sports fans" who can't afford Jack will just love to hear this "wunnerful" news while they are eating of of the dumpsters behind Mickey Dees.

anon 1: great methodology! I use it all the time!

anon 2: yes, math is not our strong suit

anon 3: the people buying gold, for the most part, are not your average American. Gold is rather expensive. But, yes I agree that the high price in precious metals indicates low confidence in the economy among sophisticated investors.

anon 4: failing to include Katrina figures sounds consistent with their typical massaging technique

anon 5: sorry, man. you're right; I shouldn't malign crack addicts like that! They're much more dignified than these liars.

gary: fair point; but I only used these as examples of a general downward trend in the economy that should engender a healthy dose of skepticism in anyone who hears these rosy assessments of the current unemployment situation. See my post What you don't know can hurt you for more reasons to dismiss, as propaganda, these made-to-order reports.

anon 6: yeah, 'they' (whoever they are) don't give a rat's ass about Jane or Joe Dumbell; 'they' live off Mr. and Mrs. Dumbell's sweat, blood, and tears.

Try this sometime. What they say about themselves is a lie and what they say about others actually reflects on themselves. Closest thing to the truth I've found.

Once you stop collecting "unemployment" aren't you taken out of the count ... even if you don't have a job or are grossly underemployed?

anon, yeah. Check out the links in my post What you don't know can hurt you. You'll see how these figures basically do not correspond to reality - at all.

In the first comment:
"My philosophy is to listen to the horse shit that they spew and then twist it 180 degrees to decipher the truth. It works great!" This is the only way to go. And if you look retroactivly at the news out of any D.C. based source the road yet to be traveled is ROUGH. The 180 trick is the "Great Equlizer" it will at least let you know where you stand.

ps have a look at the www.uwsa.com page an get a look at one real rough piece of road.

That 180 degrees thing does work great.

And I swear that's a disease that the fascists all seem to have, how they point their fingers and describe others, actually describing themselves. I guess it's called projection. They all seem to do it. Must come with their mindset.

the 180 degree thing - years ago i read that residents of the soviet union read PRAVDA the same way. i also have been reading the "news" with such filters - it does work great. isn't amazing that what we were told we were told we were fighting against is exactly what we got????

the main reason to set the truth at the 180 degree point is so that GW can understand it and deliver the message and he still gets it wrong a la the 75% mideast oil reductions DUUU DU WYA

There could be bread lines going down the middle of times square and they would still say things are going great. This country is headed for a major depression, yet the headlines state (our Economy is strong), bunch of bullshit handed on a stick. Lock your futures down folks cause if and when bush declears marshall law (I.E) terrorist attack, banks will be pad locking doors than what do you do.

Propaganda: The Source, The Target Audience, The Objective
(Apollonian, 6 Feb 06)

Yes, the question is WHAT WOULD OUR WORST ENEMY SAY ABOUT US?--it all comes fm Jews who've captured the US with the help of the "Sadduceans" (of modern-day) like Falwell, Robertson, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, et al., establishment types; "scribes," corrupt lawyers and official functionaries; THENCE TWO GROUPS: (a) the ELDERS, and (b) the "Judeo-Christians" (JCs, many of whom are these very elders) in general, so-called "Christian" suckalongs who mistake the Jews as descendants of the Israelites and Judeans of Christ's day. JCs are those dummies who forget Pharisees were only at most 15% of the population, Jews their followers.

JCs also believe in various forms of "rapture" theology involving re-taking of Jerusalem, for example, the point being none of this so-called "theology" founded in the necessary New Testament (NT) literature.

Hence in accord with NT Conspiracy-theory-analytic-template, we know the Judeo-"Sadducean" enemy leadership (for example the present Jew-infested Council on Foreing Relations [CFR]), how they think (ultra-subjectivist, narcissist, moralist, hence fascist, collectivist, hubristic), who they think they're talking to, mainly elders and JCs, enough of whom can be used as a cadre against the people.

For example, observe how the elders vote against the cheap medicinals of the youth, the "anti-drug" laws, founded upon false moralism and Pelagian-style heresy.

Many youth are too willing to serve as enforcers for these vile topmost Judeo-"Sadducean" conspirators--and indeed they suffer as they return fm Iraq with the depleted uranium in their blood.

But they're all conspirators, the elders and JCs being pathetic as they're willing to settle for so relatively little in way of pay-off, esp. again, some of the JCs who prostitute themselves as enforcers.

What then must we do? We must make use of blogs and blogging like this one to inform our volk and fellows of this vile Judeo-"Sadducean" conspiracy, doing it by easy means of NT Consp. theory-template, but also too by any other rationalist means, making use of all relevant dramatic, literary, and rhetorical techniques. We must be apostles of the truth and urge our fellow citizens, including esp. the elders and JCs to LOSE THEIR FEAR OF THE JEWS.

Thus we bring about a Constantinian-style Christian revolution in general. Specifically we must thus drive wedges into the conspiracy, it's cohesion, and encourage falling outs among the "players." Further, we do all the necessary little things to be done in way of procedural reforms--like reversion of election of US Senators to the state legislatures, paper-trails for voting--basic simple common sense stuff that enhances (Christian) HONESTY and inhibits JEW LYING AND SUBJECTIVISM.

CONCLUSION: Remember the large battle is Western OBJECTIVITY against Judeo-"Sadducean" subjectivism, lies, fraud, narcissism, moralism, heresy, fascism, treason, and hubris. Meantime just think of St. Constantine for inspiration. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

Ah well qrs...it's a darn good thing that Allah does not run out of money.

Here in AZ fears are worsening however (a real dirth of muslims around here you know) due to massive public projects that were projected to be financed by property taxes.

A one billion dollar deficit and all counties right now are either in budget crises or on the verge of them.

Like I said though...Allah doesn't run out of wealth and he straightens whom he wills and for very good reason.
