Obama’s Labor Department ‘jumps the shark’ with September jobs numbers

The Obama Labor Department has released its September jobs numbers and with them comes a surprise drop in the nations unemployment rate from 8.1 to 7.8 percent.

YIPPEEEEEE, HOORAY, YAHOOO, WHEEEE! Well it IS cause for celebrating if you’ve already decided that the only use for your brain is to tell you to breath and keep notified of the nearest Kool Aid stand.

Even The Fonz is shaking his head in disbelief at this one.

When is a drop in the unemployment rate a BAD thing?

When that “drop” is so manipulated, and the numbers so misleading that you are finally forced to admit the truth you never wanted to admit: your own government is lying to you.

Even though the U.S. economy only saw an increase of 114 thousand jobs last month, the announced unemployment number that the minions lap up DROPPED .3 percentage points to a miraculous 7.8 percent.

How in the world did the Labor Department get such optimistic numbers? (via: Jeff Cox’s cnbc.com story.)

First by stating that:

…the total number of jobs employed surged by 873,000, the highest one-month jump in 29 years. The total of unemployed people tumbled by 456,000.

And then doing this:

….Economists were expecting 113,000 more jobs and the rate to rise to 8.2 percent. Last month saw 142,000 new jobs as the rate dropped from 8.3 percent in July.

However, those numbers were revised higher, with the Labor Department putting July’s number at 181,000 from the previously reported 141,000 and August up from an originally reported 96,000.

And finally with the help of these:

….The level of part-time workers reported the largest jump for the month, gaining 582,000.

BUT what the minion media and Obama’s Labor department won’t talk about is:

….The U-6 unemployment number, which accounts for the underemployed and those who have given up looking for jobs, held steady at 14.7 percent.

So here we are America, just a little over 4 weeks away from the most critical election in generations, and an unemployment rate that has been stuck above 8 percent for

A couple of out take comments from the that same story:

Figures lie and liars figure, particularly one month before an election. To have any appearance of truth, the stats this month should have been more plausible. They went one bridge too far by creating almost 900,000 jobs in ONE MONTH. No one can believe that, particularly the three recent college grads in our family circle who cannot find their first job.

114K / month low wage no benefit jobs along with health care where 15 unelected govt central planning pukes will determine which 315 Million lives and dies.
Only an illegal peasant can get a hard on over this.
Any questions?

Then there’s Jack Welch’s tweet shown above. The former CEO of General Electric (when GE was actually a company you could be proud of) summed it up perfectly in just 93 characters that says it all. (Mr. Welch’s tweet image, via businessinsider.com)

Obamabots and minion media will whine incessantly about those of us who are questioning these numbers. “Sour grapes, don’t you want America to succeed, are you sooooo racists you can’t even cheer for jobs…” and on and on it will go.

But as sure as I type these words, as sure as the sky is blue, and the sun rises in the East, that 7.8 percent number will not stand.

It’s not that I’m some all seeing oracle, it’s as simple as the numbers themselves. The entire rate is driven by the “household survey” numbers which are the most volatile and least reliable and two months of previous data magically revised up by thousands.

That much touted 7.8 today, WILL change, it will just be when it no longer matters. And unless Romney wins on November 6th, it WILL go much, much higher.

So if you’re actually dumb enough to believe that today’s miracle numbers actually mean that one Barack Hussein Obama and his policies has put the United States economy back on the road to recovery, I’d like to introduce you to your new tutor:

“Hey dumbass, meet Mr. Rock”.

And in reference to “juDiamond’s”, ‘any questions’? Yes, I have many, but unfortunately they all just keep point back to one devastating answer:

“Good afternoon Mr. Banana, welcome to your new Republic”.
