An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Found this chart over at Red State. If you click on the itty bitty, you will get a bigger picture. Click on the bigger one and you a REAL BIG PICTURE, so you can see the months and such.
Now, I don’t know about you, but this chart tells me a whole lot. First off, we all know the government is lying about the employment numbers. They don’t count the people who are underemployed, or those who have just finally given up. Although, if you look at the number of people who are now getting some sort of government assistance, you would get a clearer picture of what is really going on.
The stimulus bill, better known as Crap Sandwich, or Porkulus, did what to stimulate the economy? Hmmm… Not a damn thing as best I can tell. The lie of ‘shovel ready jobs’ has finally been admitted by the Liar in Chief. He’s really good at lying. And unfortunately, there are still way too many who haven’t bothered to pull their heads out of his hind end to actually see the BIG picture.
Now, looking at this chart, we have a section titled ‘recession’. Then the arrow continues to do a major dip. What do they call that? What comes after recession if there are no jobs, and very high real number unemployment. I dunno….I would think it would be called a ‘depression’. Now, I’m not an economist, by any stretch of the imagination, but I have enough smarts to know bullsh*t when I see it. And that’s we have here ladies and gentlemen. A very large, steaming pile of caca de toro!
