Flaming Tweet: Jack Welch
Says White House Games
the Jobs Data

Bloomberg Business Week, by Tim Catts

Former General Electric Co. (GE) Chief Executive Officer Jack Welch accused the Obama administration on Twitter of manipulating today’s employment data for political advantage. “Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers,” Welch, 76, wrote in a message posted immediately after the U.S. Labor Department reported that the economy added 114,000 jobs last month. That pushed the unemployment rate to 7.8 percent, the lowest since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009. Welch’s Twitter message went viral on the social-media site, as political commentators

These number are fishy 114,000 jobs added lowers the unemployment rate by .3%? that's every 38,000 jobs lowers the rate by .1%?
That would me that 2.1 million jobs would give us an rate of 0%.
Maybe my math is in error.

Great opportunity for Romney.

Obama is bragging about the increase in part-time workers, seasonal workers as progress forward.
Are you happy with a president who's happy with a bunch of part-time jobs being created?

We need full-time jobs. We can create them in the coal industry, the oil industry, the natural gasoline industry, the construction industry, the steel making industry and many more but the Obama administration is doing all they can to prevent creation of those jobs.

We have abundant energy resources. This is our advantage in a global marketplace. We need to take advantage of that which will help lower energy costs for all of us, and help businesses compete by lowering their costs.
We can, and will, do it safe and responsibly.

I think they have just jumped the shark. There is no way anyone is going to believe these numbers, especially the millions of unemployed. Even the AssPress had to admit in the Last sentence of their article that most of the hires were part-time.

Okay, someone explain to me how almost every week in Sept unemployment claims were at least 350,000 so that's approx 1.4 million people who lost jobs in sept vs the 104,000 jobs added and the rate dropped to 7.8%? Are people really that stupid? I mean really...that stupid???

Everyone knew there would be the magic number below 8% by November. They have defined enough people as 'out of the labor force' that the number is meaningless. No one believes this stuff anymore.

To quote Herman Cain, "They think we are STOOPID."

So a bunch of seasonal workers have been hired. That's nice. What happens after Christmas when all the seasonal employees lose their jobs?

How could anything be suspicious about the household survey. 873,000 new jobs, 582,000 part time. Hmmmm, that's exactly two thirds. Not approximately, exactly. What are the odds of that. U-6 didn't change last month. More bls bs, and for some reason government hiring went on a binge, because we all know how much spare money they have to spend.

Additional info on #6. The telephone survey includes a question as to whether you worked for free on a family farm or in a family business. If you are unemployed and help out on your dad's farm or your neighbor's farm during September's harvest then you are counted as finding work even though you are still unemployed.

I actually had an automated polling service call me about the election. It went exactly like this. "In the upcoming presidential election, if you plan to vote for Barack Obama press 1, if you plan to vote for Mitt Romney press 2, if you plan to vote for a different candidate press 3." (I pressed 2) Next question: "Do you consider your support for Barack Obama very strong, press 1, strong, press 2, weak, press 3, or very weak, press 4." (At this point I hung up)

Why the mention of Welch's age? Is it to devalue his tweet as the rantings of one in the throes of senile dementia?

Teen urinates in reservoir;

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

Federal Judge Overturns North

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called North

The team behind the upcoming TV movie about convicted killer Kermit Gosnell counted on the public to help them fund their project. They said that the mainstream media and Hollywood didn´t give Gosnell´s horrific crimes the attention they deserved. The result? The most successful crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo´s history, beating projects spearheaded by actors James Franco and Shemar Moore. Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney credit the support of popular actors Kevin Sorbo and Nick Searcy for starring in videos promoting the project. McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney have raised $907,460 to date and the total continues to climb.

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power." Rose

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
