In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.
The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.
And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.
Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.
And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today. More here:
"Continues today." And what are YOU gonna do about it, sheep? Huh? The same thing as you're doing about being spied on by the government? Yeah, that's what I thought.
The government ... covering up the real unemployment numbers ... who would have guessed? What next? We find they're lying about the inflation numbers? Or our health care costs? Oh, not to worry, they're only doing it for our own good.
Health care costs ... and every five minutes on TV I see some law firm suing some medical company and urging others to pile on. I'll bet that doesn't affect health care costs in the slightest. Is the government trying to stop that fraud? Answer: No.
But wait ... do you mean to tell me the economy sucks? It sucks worse than it ever has? I don't get it ... the government has been telling me "the recession's over" for what feels like ten years ... even though I'm much worse off ... and despite record tax revenue, the country is deeper in debt than ever before. Nossir, I just don't get it. Very mysterious. Unless ... THE EVIL RICH still aren't paying their fair share ... that must be it.
Anyone want to give odds on whether the liars/cheaters will lose their government jobs?
There's another aspect to this news that's even more puzzling. No matter how many facts like this come out, it never phases the thinking of the
Democratics tyrants ... no ... they remain fixed. You must go along with them, you must believe them ... you must surrender your money and liberty to them "for the greater good."
Don't you see? The greater good is more important than your individual liberty. Give them your freedom ... they're smarter than you ... they're more benevolent than you ... overcome your racist greed, jackass ... you're in the way.
