A Patriotic Response To The "Clown Prince;" 12/03/2011

This week, we learned that our economy added another 140,000 private sector jobs in November. Despite some strong headwinds this year, America’s economy has now created private sector jobs for the past 21 months in a row – almost three million new jobs in all, more than half a million of them in the past four months alone. We need to keep this growth going and strengthen it. That’s why we’ve been fighting to pass a series of jobs bills through Congress – bills that independent economists say will create more jobs and grow the economy even faster. Because now is the time to step on the gas, not slam on the brakes. Unfortunately, too many Republicans in Congress don’t seem to share that same sense of urgency. Over the last few months, they’ve said “no” to most of these jobs bills. “No” to putting teachers and firefighters back to work. “No” to putting construction workers back on the job. And this week, they actually said “no” to cutting taxes for middle-class families. You see, last year, both parties came together to cut payroll taxes for the typical middle-class family by about $1,000. But that tax cut is set to expire at the end of this month. If that happens, that same family will see its taxes go up by $1,000. We can’t let that happen. In fact, I think we should cut taxes on working families and small business owners even more. And we’re going to keep pushing Congress to make this happen. They shouldn’t go home for the holidays until they get this done. And if you agree with me, I could use your help.
[What I'm not telling you: Now that the unemployment rate has been reduced to 8.6%, it raises the question: how did an increase of a mere 140,000 jobs decrease the U-3 unemployment rate nearly one-half a percentage point? That's easy enough to answer!?! Statistically tweeking the available workforce numbers and the available number of jobs, numbers!! Nothing really changes. In those instances we need change, we 'manufacture' said change by fiddling with the numbers until they indicate what we want indicated!
The 'Party of No' is a regime created phrase designed to turn the many undecided "KoolAid drinkers' against the Congress; Congressmen of either party. It doesn't seem to be working! We had hoped for the phrase to create a tide of negative reaction toward the Congress; not so much! The voters--both paid and unpaid--seem to be judging my actions with independent thought; something unheard of in the past. Usually, as with voters--both dead and alive--in Chicago, the bought voter stays 'bought!' That $1,000 that I'm touting as the next savior of the serf class is nothing more than so-much hooey!! The referenced payroll tax cut extension will keep less than $19.25 per week in the workers' paychecks. In New York that's about two packs of cigarettes; anywhere else, it's a weekly meal-for-two in a cheap joint most of us wouldn't frequent!!
As most of you are now realizing, the American voter; the American taxpayer, the American citizen is seeing through most of the statistics that come out of the federal government, whether they come from the regime and the White House or from the allegedly non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Take for instance, the latest unemployment figures: how can the creation of 140,000 jobs drop the socially-acceptable U-3 unemployment rate nearly one-half percentage point to 8.6%?!? Forget all the White House blusterful blather, the true reason is that over 315,000 unemployed American workers have stopped looking for work!! To the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), that means they're no longer counted in the manipulation of the unemployment numbers. Anyone who stops looking for work is just dfr'd (dropped from the rolls), meaning they just 'fall off the face of the earth;' they no longer matter in the creation of the fictitous socially-accepted, regime-manipulated U-3 unemployment rate. If it wouldn't continue the downward-spiral of the regime's public persona, the U-6 total unemployment number should be used in all discussions; all legislative jobs proposals.]
We’ve set up a simple tax cut calculator on WhiteHouse.gov so that you can see exactly what the stakes are for your family. Try it out. Then let your members of Congress know where you stand. Tell them not to vote to raise taxes on working Americans during the holidays. Tell them to put country before party. Put money back in the pockets of working Americans. Pass these tax cuts. We’re all in this together. The more Americans succeed, the more America succeeds. And if we remember that and do what it takes to keep this economy growing and opportunity rising, then I’m confident that we’ll come out of this stronger than before.
[What I'm not telling you: Ta-Hell with the White House 'tax-cut calculator!!' That only tells the public what George Soros and the regime want them to know. Even on it's face, this calculator is little more than a propaganda tool. For a better look at the entire economy and how the fascists are continuing to destroy it, please go to http://www.usdebtclock.org/ for a far clearer picture of the economy. This 'debt clock' gives the viewer not only the federal financial statistics but also numbers on auto sales, energy output, precious metals, all manner of business statistics as well as those detailing federally mandated 'give-away' programs. Are you aware--for instance--that the total unfunded mandates are $166.7 TRILLION ?!? That equates to well over ONE-MILLION-DOLLARS PER TAXPAYER!?! How can any politician--let alone the incompetent boob in the White House--really believe that these numbers are even close to 'sustainable?!?']
