Jiggering The Job Numbers
Bet You Didn't Know...
There was just a hearing where US Department of Labor big wigs were called forward. That hearing was tagged as the “Addressing Concerns about the Integrity of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Jobs Reporting” hearing. That's something that needs to be questioned seriously in an election year. The data is being manipulated by the Obama administration to give the public at large a warm fuzzy and a feeling that Obama is the "Great Job Creator" along with all his other tags of greatness which only really illustrate his failure to lead this nation.
I am seeing that even the mainstream media is beginning to pay a little closer attention to the smoke and mirrors routine that the Department of Labor does so well. Maybe after viewing a few videos you'll find that you yourself have a green job! The category seems to encompass some "far reaching" category type jobs like driving a garbage truck, a school bus driver, selling used records and the list goes on.
Here's a video about some jobs that they've suddenly included in the name of "creating green jobs."
Maybe You're In The Count?
The link below is the source article I used for this Hub and has the actual video footage, which is not yet available on You Tube, of the hearing and the line of questioning that was taken and the "usually reluctant" answers that were given.

- Labor Dept. counts oil lobbyists, bus drivers as green jobs | The Daily Caller
Senior U.S. Labor Department officials revealed that the Obama administration counts oil lobbyists, bus drivers and garbage men as “green jobs.”
Scamming the American public seems what Obama does best. He promised hope and change and now we see what we see. He wants to tout creating "green jobs" and the hearing this past Wednesday illustrates the fallacy behind those figures. I keep hearing about the 4 million jobs that Obama created since taking office. First of all, Obama hasn't created jobs, other than to bloat the federal bureaucracy. Jobs, productive jobs, are created by the private sector and things haven't gone well in that arena because of the failed policies Obama has tried. Those same policies were tried in the past and yielded the same failed results.
So lets just jigger the numbers and put them out there in an attempt to scam the American electorate once again. It goes on and on and is all about nothing more than politics and has very little to do with the creation of actual jobs, green or of any other color.
This last link below asks the critical question any thinking person should ask every time a new unemployment figure is bandied about between now and the November election. Maybe someone can answer the question in a more logical manner than the young lady in the video?
Where Did They Go?
There are still those that actually believe what Obama says or maybe the case is that they are die hard partisans who would vote a party line even if it meant the destruction of our nation. I would hope that ignorance at that level does not exist in our nation but I know that it actually does.
How do you make over 3 million unemployed people disappear? "Why would that be done" is the better question? Then how do you stretch the truth beyond believably by classifying jobs as "green" when it borders on hystrical. Even the acting chief of the Department of Labor was embarrassed and baffled at times when answering the questions asked.
