I blame Boosh!

Because that seems to always be the battle cry of these morons on the left who can’t see the reason stuff like this happens is their policies and the implementation of said policies. Case in point revelations like One in five U.S. workers was laid off in the past five years and about 22% of those who lost their jobs still haven’t found another one, which shows you what happens whenever government assumes the role of picking winners & losers. Of course they can’t see the forest for the trees, even when the information stares them in the face.

Those who did find work had a difficult time with their job search and the effects of unemployment, the survey by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University found.

Nearly 40% said it took more than seven months to find employment and about one in five of laid-off workers said all they could find was a temporary position.

Almost half — 46% — of the estimated 30 million layoff victims who found new jobs said they paid less then their old ones, according to the survey of 1,153 U.S adults done over the summer.

“While job growth has been consistent, it has been insufficient to produce enough full-time jobs for everyone,” the study said.

Despite a declining overall unemployment rate, the study says, long-term joblessness has remained a major problem as the U.S. economy has slowly recovered from the deep recession, which technically ended in June 2009.

The study notes that 3 million Americans in August had been unemployed for more than six months. Although that figure has been declining, it still is high.

The effects of long-term unemployment can be traumatic, the survey found.

What a pile of bullshit. The economy has sucked, and continues to suck, despite the fucking LSM’s propaganda to the contrary, and it is directly tied to the burdensome government meddling in the private sector. Whatever good has happened comes despite the people in charge’s efforts that have tried to deny that growth (oil industry anyone?). Our system is one of crony capitalism: one where the powerful and connected buy favors and gain huge benefits from people in government that in turn profit and keep power from selling these favors. This system prevents real economic growth and indubitably destroys the middle class and opportunities for those in or trying to get into the middle class.

That’s why the number of jobless people, which should include people that no longer get counted because they are off the government unemployment benefit dole, is staggering, and the trend so ugly. Most of these new jobs the LA Times want to pretend are responsible for the faux growth the left has been peddling since black Jesus took power, have been low end service sector jobs too. And it is not just that have lost jobs that have suffered. The employed, unless they were in the public sector, have also been hammered. The reasons are blatant as well. Over regulation to serve the left’s various agendas and government power grabs masquerading as social improvement projects, things like Obamacare or the EPA’s assault on fossil fuels, all have drastic economic consequences.

If we had a republican in charge the LSM would be telling us that we were in a recession. Remember that whenever you see these fluff pieces that refuse to acknowledge that the bad times come from the left’s policies and practices.

    This is the same line of crap that has utilities getting their panties in a twist due to the ever-increasing, but still small (around 4%), solar power solution that people are installing like fucking crazy in certain locations.

    The government frequently set up laws decades ago favoring a specific monopoly to provide electricity and maintain the infrastructure, but also have to contend with newer laws favoring the installation of what directly competes with the previous monopoly, complete with demands that they buy excess power at market rates, but don’t have to help in maintaining the infrastructure.

    Who loses? Pretty much everybody in the end. Electricity rates continue to go up to cover the cost of maintaining an expanding grid that new micro-producers aren’t paying for. Also, the various tax breaks and subsidies are going to expire soon (another government meddle) so those late to the bandwagon aren’t going to get the various handouts of tax dollars to supplement their electric bill. Not to worry, there will be more coming in the near future without a doubt.

    Funny you should bring up electricity costs SO, because my consumption over the last 6 months compared to the year before is down by almost 20% overall, yet my monthly payments, also compared to the same period the year before, have gone from being 10% to almost 20% higher. In short, my consumption has gone down but I am paying more than I did before when I used more energy. I plan to go look at bills from 2 and 3 years ago, I kept these for some reason, and I bet that trend will prevail there.

    The People’s Republic of Connecticut has been one of the states that has pushed the Obama Administrations green bullshit agenda the hardest, and the fact that I have paid more to usel less, shows what they have been all about. In the mean time Man Bear Pig is jetting around telling us peons we need to get back to living in caves after 80% of mankind is culled.
