I guess some of the No-Nothings from Conservatism have been out there with their propaganda about the employment picture in America again.
The way I read their BS is that the employment situation is really a lot worse than what they call “The Media Machine” wants to paint it and that this so-called “Media Machine” (Actually Main Stream Media) is bending the figures to benefit the re-election prospects of President Obama.
As usual, it’s always about Obama with the Far Right Fringe, isn’t it?
The Far Right Wing Radical Nut Fringe wants America to believe that regardless of the facts and figures to the contrary– the facts and figures that show continued and steady upward mobility in the employment numbers–the “Real” jobs pictures is “Miserable.”
To that I say, “Poppycock!”
What would you expect someone as desperate as The Far Right to say? I think they understand the tenuous ground they stand upon with The American People because of their obstructionist ways and their stubborn focus on the single objective of making sure that Obama is a one term President.
It is obvious to me, at least, that there is no sign of viable leadership coming from that side of the fence and of course they are going to get all defensive and try to make us believe how bad things are under Obama because, as they have said, defeating him in 2012 is basically the only thing they have in their basket.
Conservatism has been poo-pooing the recently-announced 8.3% unemployment rate as insignificant and claiming that we are still in a terrible jobs slump and this, somehow proves that the President, whose policies are turning the Economy around, doesn’t deserve another term.
I guess what these myth-informationists don’t want us to focus on is the fact that it is, indeed, the policies of President Obama and his administration that are helping us to turn the corner. It is plain to anyone with a modicum of common sense that if the present trend in our Economic Improvement continues for any length of time, the old Recession sparked by the most recent Conservatist administration’s total bungling will finally come to an end and full and robust prosperity will return to these shores.
I think the thought of the American Economy improving under the leadership of our President puts pepper in the panties of some of his detractors and I’m lovin’ it!
Some of the Conservative-Leaning detractors of our President want to focus our attention on what they define as “What is really going on” rather than what is actually going on. In other words, they seem to want to ignore the facts (Who is surprised by that?) and leave us with their own interpretation of what is happening to the Economy.
In other words, I think they are up to their old revisionist tricks again just so they can gain some kind of political advantage by twisting the truth—as usual.
One of the most obtuse observations I have ever heard from that side of the political spectrum is the one that states, in effect, that the jobless rate is falling (They admit that much) but we are still going through the longest and worst period of unemployment since the Great Depression that began in the 1920s and ended sometime in the 1940s with President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal.”
The significant fact here is that the unemployment rate actually is falling. That is the progress! I didn’t see any sign of the unemployment rate falling because of anything they had to offer, did you? They were too busy standing in the way of anything the President or the administration wanted to do to offer any positive solution of their own.
President Obama told the nation during his campaign that the mess left to us by the previous administration would not be cleaned up in a mere four years. He told us straight out that the damage that had been done could not be repaired in a short four year Presidency.
Others who have expertise in fiscal matters have predicted that the mess created from approximately 2000 to around 2008 will not be fully resolved perhaps for decades!
The Far Right Extreme has no basis on which to accuse our President or his administration of anything. It is his policies that are turning the Economy around again and they are fully aware of it. They are so aware of it, in fact, that they have recently stopped attacking our President on his Economic Policies (Because there is no longer a valid argument against them) and have shifted their focus once again to the tired old “Family and Moral Values Religious Social Agenda” that they have used in the past.
This, in my opinion, is nothing but a diversionary ploy and I think the American People are aware of that fact and that the Reichtist Extreme will not be able to pull it off this time like they have in the past.
The Reicht is so desperate to prove their point that they are now claiming that the “Real” unemployment rate is more like 15% and they are even including people in that figure who are actually working– at part time jobs. This doesn’t make sense because a job is a job whether it is part time or not. Effort plus a Paycheck equals a job in my book!
But I also remember reading somewhere that this same obtuse bunch of Reichtists once had the Department of Labor classify the act of putting sandwiches together in fast food restaurants as “Manufacturing Assembly Work” in order to artificially bolster their own jobs reports.
I thought that was hilarious at the time I first heard about it. But, in my experience and in my opinion, that is how they are, how they have been in the past, and most likely– how they will always be.
Another point that the propaganda masters want to make us believe concerns the shrinking American Labor Force. They are telling us that some people who have gotten so frustrated in their job search that they have stopped looking for work and are, therefore, no longer in the Labor Force. Duuhhh!
The thing about that (As I see it) is this: If the Reicht and their friends would stop sending American Work to cheap foriegn labor markets in the quest for more and greedier profits, the American Labor Force would not get frustrated about not being able to find work. If this were to happen, there would be plenty of work to go around.
I keep hearing all this BS about why America shouldn’t tax the rich and the “Small Business” because these are the “Jobs Generators” for The American Labor Force. I have been hearing that drivel since at least the year 2000.
In my mind, the fact is clear that if these folks were the “Job Generators” and they have enjoyed the so-called “Bush Tax Cuts” for all these years, they should have “Generated” enough jobs by now for every American to have a job and every immigrant to these shores as well. In fact, if the claim they make about “Job Generators” was true, America wouldn’t be able to fill all the jobs that were “Generated” by these “Job Generators.”
So my question is simply, “Hey there, Job Generators! Where are all the jobs?”
But it is all smoke and mirrors like most everything the Extreme Right comes up with.
The voters of America need to know the truth and not the empty ramblings of a few frustrated fantasy-spinners from a failing ideology.
