Conveniently for the left, which spent its time doing the manu-weasel dance with a modified jig dance the whole time they could pretend America was shut, where the Obama administration pissed away $24 billion to inconvenience people – only in Obama’s new America does a government shutdown cost more than actually keeping the bloated Leviathan running, and nobody feels Americans are getting screwed – so they could blame republicans, many newsworthy things have gone unreported. With the shutdown over, the left has tried real hard to put a positive spin on the whole abysmal Obamacare signup experience, and done a terrible job of it. The website is a disaster, and the they first tried to pretend the problem was so many people were signing up that it was unable to handle it, but then we found out the problem was just that the whole site was a $625 million dollar pile of garbage. Now they are looking for help to cover their asses. They then told people to use the phone to register, but that’s working just as good as the website, and that’s if people trying to sign up can get through.
But the Obamacare rollout disaster –and remember, these are the people that will have the monopoly on running our healthcare too – is not the only story that got cover from first all the shutdown propaganda, and now, from the Obamacare rollout debacle. There was a revision of our September job numbers that as usual, was downward from the predicted 166,000 and the expected/reported numbers. So they expected 180K jobs, predicted 166K, but got 148K. There is a pattern over the last 5 years of this over estimation followed by a downward correction constantly being the case, with so few exceptions that they can be dropped as statistical noise, and that’s not by accident. The left is desperate to pretend that Black Jesus’ administration is doing something to fix the economy. Reality is quite the opposite, as the real numbers show. I would love to know how many of those jobs were also part time ones. That’s the new trend due to Obamacare, which we can also see is showing how healthcare in America will be for those of us unable to exclude ourselves from that crap, based on the current experiences with the program. Maybe we will get lucky, and this display of stupidity, ineptitude, arrogance, and inability to face the reality of how onerous and broken this monstrous takeover of healthcare is, will finally push enough people into fighting this cancer foisted on us by the left.
UPDATE: Not surprised to find out that a record 90,609,000 Americans are not participating in our labor force. Now just in case you thought that in a country of 300 million that almost amounts to 1 in 3 so they have to be counting kids or something, check this out:
(CNSNews.com) – The number of Americans who are 16 years or older and who have decided not to participate in the nation’s labor force has climbed to a record 90,609,000 in September, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS counts a person as participating in the labor force if they are 16 years or older and either have a job or have actively sought a job in the last four weeks. A person is not participating in the labor force if they are 16 or older and have not sought a job in the last four weeks.
GOOD TIMES BABY! This is the left’s economy. The economic doldrum of the Carter years was not an accident. Neither is this one. People more focused on perpetual government jobs that utilize class warfare, race huckstering, and cronyism to assure that, are not going to produce a vibrant, let alone viable, economy. As long as the left gets to push the policies that make people in dependant serfs, expect the economy to be pathetic. Of course, the connected rich are also raking it in, so some people are winning big. Pays to be a democrat.
