All of society is based on faith and trust. We trust that our government has our best interests in mind. We have faith our media are the watchdogs they are supposed to be. We believe our police are there to serve and protect. But what happens when all of that goes away? The collapse of society is what happens as seen in countless previous civilizations such as the Mayans, the Romans and the Mongols. This is a repeating pattern that mankind seems oblivious too and maybe a fatal blind spot in our species.
The unemployment numbers came out last week and even some MSM outlets are saying the numbers look fishy. Several websites and news outlets have reported that the unemployment numbers do not add up and if we counted all unemployed people in this country, not just the select ones still collecting unemployment, the true number would be around 23%, where it has not moved much in six years. One of the reasons democrats weren't crowing hard about the economy during the last election is a lot of them were afraid someone would notice their numbers don't add up.
Job gain and job losses in the last BLS report also looked strange as commented on from people such as Robert Reich and Paul Craig Roberts, both of which held high level government offices and whose expert opinion should be listened to. The report says this:
The number of Americans participating in the labor force has been on a decline for the past few years. Nearly 33 percent of the Americans above age 16 are not part of the workforce, the highest number since 1978. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report issued recently has found 92,898,000 Americans above age 16 not a part of the labor force of the country as on February 2015.
When President Obama took over the office in January 2009, nearly 80,529,000 Americans were not a part of the labor force. The number has increased by nearly 12 million over the last few years.
Here's some more from that report:
The labor force participation rate hovered between 62.9 percent and 62.7 percent in the eleven months from April 2014 through February, and has been 62.9 percent or lower in 13 of the 17 months since October 2013. Prior to that, the last time the rate was below 63 percent was 37 years ago, in March 1978 when it was 62.8 percent, the same rate it was in February .
When you add the number of “officially unemployed” Americans (8.7 million) to the number of Americans “not in the labor force” (92.9 million), you get a total of 101 million without a job! In no way, does that number equal a 5.5% unemployment rate which our deaf, dumb and stupid MSM keeps telling us with no disclaimer that that number is bullshit.
This is from the Social Security website:
39 percent of American workers make less than $20,000 a year
52 percent of American workers make less than $30,000 a year.
63 percent of American workers make less than $40,000 a year.
72 percent of American workers make less than $50,000 a year.
According to a new poll by the Pew Research Center, Americans see government policies under the Obama administration as having mostly benefited wealthy people, large corporations and financial institutions.
Seventy-two percent of respondents said government policies have done little or nothing to help the middle class, and 65 percent said they have done nothing to help the poor. Sixty-eight percent said the policies have done nothing to help small businesses.
Meanwhile, 45 percent said the policies have done a “great deal” to help large banks and financial institutions, 38 percent say they have helped large corporations, and 36 percent say they have helped the wealthy.
This is why people hate the democrats and the Republicans and rightfully so. Most of them are corrupt crooks hell bent on stuffing their own pockets over the public good. And if that poll is accurate, a lot us are starting to realize the Emperor has no clothes.
If we had a media worth a damn, they would be holding these politicians feet to the fire instead of coddling them with soft ball questions. If we had a police force that was there to serve the public, and a justice system to back them up, these guys would be in prison. But none of that is occurring anymore because none of these groups work for you anymore. They work for Monsanto, and WalMart and McDonalds and every other huge conglomerate that controls the halls of power, the media and the police. That is frightening.
The police have been proven to be racists pigs used mostly as a fundraising drive by stealing from the poor and giving to the rich. Our media should be investigating EVERY police department nationwide because only a fool would think Ferguson is an abnormality. But of course they aren't, because then they wouldn't have time to do a ten minute piece on whether eggs are good for you or not. Sigh.
