17% Unemployment

We never watch 60 Minutes.  Today a friend sent me a clip from last night’s show. Or part of the show. I was shocked to see 60 Minutes admit that the actual unemployment rate is at 17%. I’ve been saying this for a long time, but the liberal press keeps using the number of 9.4%.  Even Gallop said the number is 10%. This figure doesn’t count the people who have given up on looking for a job or those whose 2 years of unemployment benefits have run out.

If you didn’t see the show, they featured a group called the 99ers. They have been without work for 99 weeks.  One guy, who was an executive, has finally gotten a part-time job at Target. A friend of mine, who owns a failing gallery told me his wife found a job as a grocery clerk.  They were thrilled. She has a Master’s Degree. Her new job is $9 an hour and they are happy to have it.

I was amused at 60 Minutes saying this has been the longest and flattest recession on record.  Folks, it comes down to us replacing the Obama people this November 2nd.  President Obama and his policies are killing us. Companies are afraid to spend. They don’t know what else the Democrats are going to do. The Healthcare bill is nothing but a redistribution of wealth.  No wonder many companies are opting out of the Government Healthcare plan.

If you have read this, have early voting in your area and have not voted, get off your butt and go to the polls. Otherwise, make sure and VOTE November 2nd. Every vote will count.  We will have a lot of Democrats cheating with votes.  They always do. It’s fairly common for the dead to cast Democrat votes. I’m sure this year is no exception.  There is still time to save America, but not if you stay home.

Please allow me to give you an incentive to vote conservative. The Obama camp is looking at eliminating home mortgage interest deductions and doing away with tax write-offs for children. They see this as a great way to increase our taxes and pull in more money.  Welcome to Obama World.
