    What do you think about the latest job numbers? And then the unemployment rate dropping to 4.7%. At this rate, we will reach full employment before the end of Obama's term...

      Except the numbers used by this administration are undeniably FALSE ,   almost a hundred million previously unemployed workers  have been removed from extended  unemployment benefits nationwide and LEFT the unemployment roles ,   Food stamps , welfare  benefits , disability SSI benefits  have risen  , welfare roles have risen ,   minor unemployment rates approaching 50%  , minority unemployment rates in the inner cities ,      None of this even  signifies the under-employed , or those now holding two or three part-time jobs , where once ,one full time job !

      The problem here isn't  even simply that  of having the wool pulled over your eye's ,    but the underappreciated  sense of the surreal and  naiveté   that the Obama administration has shown and sold to you  ,  but that also   your  sense of  reality   is skewed  , but dream on  Obama-ites.  Everything is pie -in -the sky!

      The only thing worse than how naïve those that voted for him were -  IS that you haven't learned from  the ultimate stupidity of  "Fool me once , shame on you , fool me twice -shame on me."

      This is a darn good question, but ahorseback beat me to the punch on what I was going to say.

      The 30 hour or less rule imposed by Obamacare caused millions of people to be cut from full time to part time jobs.  Those people were forced to take a second part-time job to meet their expenses, and this made the unemployment numbers look better.  Almost anyone with a brain could have told us this was going to happen.

      As so aptly pointed out by ahorseback, these unemployment numbers are completely false and worthless.  If part-time and minimum wage jobs were removed from the report, our true unemployment numbers would scare everyone in this country.

      All these fictitious numbers do is make the politicians look good.

      I'm with horseback and poolman on this one Jack.  Those figures are to deceive the public into thinking everything is ok when the opposite is true.  The mainstream media and the White House is regulated to report a false narrative, people who dare to report the truth are soon fired, smeared and ruined, or found dead. 

      The unemployment rate about a month ago was more like 27% according to experts who do tell the truth.  Government operations are working on censoring truthers. That includes Google, Facebook and Microsoft.

        I would have put that number lower slightly but you're probably right about on .   Here's a point , I understand the need for encouraging a population , especially today ,   But I do not want my Government  to LIE to me .

        I cannot wait until our media  gets its own ass handed to it !

          I was a little surprised with that high of a figure, I didn't come up with it on my own.  Given the wide-spread deception that has been spewed I do realize the figure is much higher than what is being reported. 

          You are awake!

          I'm glad that many more people are catching on to the Government. As they have brought off and sold you down the river for many years now. Things have slowly been getting worst since 1971 where nothing backs the dollar. Today, sh*t is about to hit at an accelerated rate beyond what most can imagine, and most won"t be ready.

          Being aware is the first step for many of the  people doing things for the positive love for everything. Forget the Politicians they are selling you fairytales, without the healthy metaphor.

            Personally   ,  part of me hopes all of the socialist reformation of our  American political system ,  our society and it's mostly  LAW ABIDING   culture  comes down to  armed revolution  and constitutional retrieval of our democracy  ,.....  I'd like nothing more than to drive the illegals back to Mexico ., Guatemala ,  Syria , Libya and  Chile .   I would also rather see the fire hoses , tear gas and pepper spray  come out than a "Standing Down " of law enforcement  shown of late in San Jose ,  Albuquerque , Los Angeles and   so ordered by the State and  Federal government ,  This  violent rioting is not free speech  ,.......... it is the sequestering of truth  and due process.

            Law Abiding Americans are slow to anger , and  yet quick  to  respond to the lawlessness of a colonial  , totalitarian government ,  We saw it in 1700's -1800's and it can happen again . America is becoming  sickened by this administration of divisiveness ,  social reformist , entitlement diluting socialist ,revisionist President.   WE WILL RETURN AMERCA to the ownership of it's constitution and it's people . 

            And if it happens with the electing of Trump., then so be it ! He has my vote.

              A better and more peaceful way is the Convention of States as proposed by Mark Levin. It is what the Constitution provided for such a situation.

              ahorseback....Do you suppose this has anything to do with their efforts with more gun control?  I believe the establishment is really afraid that what you describe will happen.

              That would be playing right into their hands.  The Soviets have inverted their mission to over throw the imperialistic government by putting king Obama on the throne.  Refresh your memory on the Weathermen, Black Panthers, the bombings, protests, riots, and shoot-outs with cops, etc.  Bill Ayers home was where they launched the Obama campaign in 2008. 

              The cops have been instructed to stand down with the gangs of rioters. Trump supporters are taking a beating out there at the hands of a bunch of brainwashed socialist anarchists.  This was all planned for this election year. I hope there will not be a boiling point, and that they will not succeed in stopping Trump and his supporters' First Amendment rights to free speech. 

              Obama is a tyrant.
