Regarding Those New Unemployment Figures...

The mainstream press continues to tout the "8.3% and falling" unemployment rate, knowing this will help boost Obama's re-election efforts. However, as is usual with this administration, there is what you're told and there is the truth:

"The (official) jobless rate has fallen to 8.3 percent because the percentage of adults participating in the labor force fell from 65 percent to 63.7 percent," said Peter Morici, a labor economist and business professor at the University of Maryland in College Park.

"During this recovery, the most effective jobs creation program has been to convince more adults that they don't want a job, or it's futile to look for a decent position, and they simply quit looking," said Morici.

By comparison, Gallup's unemployment rate (without seasonal adjustments the government uses) is 9.1%. The total unemployment rate (unemployed plus people who are working part-time but want fulltime) is 19.1%!

Double Standards

It amuses me to see the Left contort itself to maintain that their rampant misogyny against conservative women (hello Sarah Palin) is different than what Rush did to professional activist Sandra Fluke.

With Regards to Sandra Fluke

Let's be honest, shall we?

Even if Rush had never uttered a word about The Fluke, ANY push back against her would have been deemed "an assault on women" no matter how principled or objective.

A Question

If Cinco de Mayo - which is not celebrated in Mexico - is a holiday only because Americans made it one, then isn't it really an American holiday? In that case, US flags should be just fine.

Mayor Bloomberg

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg warns foks against bias now that the Time Square Bomber has turned out to be Muslim.

I guess bias wasn't a problem when Hizzoner was opining that the bomber was probably someone who opposed ObamaCare.

I mean, some folks, you just gotta expect the worst, right?

Foiled Again

Janet Napolitano makes fun of the Times Square bomber, calling his efforts "amateurish".

Silly little terrorist...

Remember the "Panty Bomber"? FAIL!

The Shoe Bomber? FAIL!

The guys who wanted to hit the military base in New Jersey? FAIL!

You start to wonder how these guys ever managed 9/11.

Hmmm. could it be...George W. Bush?

I mean, before W - crack terrorists who fly planes into buildings. After W - slapstick terrorists who can't seem to get anything right.

Just a thought...

Core Values

Barack Obama says the new Arizona immigration law allows police to demand proof of citizenship and threatens the "core values that we all care about".

He doesn't specify what does values are, but I'm guessing he's not talking about the preservation of our national sovereignty, secure borders, or the sanctity of American citizenship.

The Nerve of Some People

So, the President of a country with the strictest immigration laws in the hemisphere - a country that has delighted in making their impoverished, unemployed citizens our problem - is upset that Arizona passed an immigration law.

Question of the Day

Why is it wrong for the U.S. to be the only industrialized nation not to have universal healthcare, but it's not wrong for the U.S. to be the only industrialized nation without adequate control of it's borders?
