Well Obama is sure to be pleased with himself now.
Isn’t that the model that he’s trying to follow? Social and Economic upheaval so that the masses would have no choice but to BEG for the government to take over?
Maybe the people are a bit brighter today. Maybe they realize that it’s the governments melding that has been the vehicle of this titanic.
I think they are getting smarter. The only problem is that the people in the Universities that are being brainwashed with lies, are virulent in their positions that are skewed and misled on purpose by the government and the institutions that teach and preach the doctrine that they are brainwashed themselves in to believing.
The reason it’s easy to brain wash these people is because they don’t function in the real world. The world of Academics is no longer a product and service, rather it’s unions and lobbies. They teach what those unions and lobbies want as well as big donors. Those big donors don’t hide who they are and the are foreign interests, like Saudi Arabia. But the Muslim participation doesn’t stop there. The MSA and like organizations are not classified as foreign. They represent the same thing: ISLAM. This is only one example. And it deals with Muslims. However, there is a connection. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Socialist/Communists are partnered together for right now. The objective is the destabilization of the US and the WEST. I think that they are winning and we have yet to call them on it. We have YET to articulate the TRUTH.
The COMMUNISTS and the MUSLIMS have joined forces to overthrow the WEST.
Once this is accomplished they will battle each other for the top dog.
For now though, they are succeeding in the economic ruin of the WEST. This is only part of the first few phases. Don’t take my word for it, make the assumptions and then run the logic around in your own minds. Tell me what makes sense to you. Because to me, it’s quite clear.
This illegitimate president in charge of this unconstitutional government has performed the most egregious act against the US, TREASON. He brings aid and comfort to our enemies, he appoints people to positions that only answer to him and he continues to financially ruin this country so that our sovereignty is not guaranteed. That is an ACT of TREASON. There is more but I’m content with just listing those for now.
Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment at 10.1% in September:
Underemployment, at 18.8%, is up from 18.6% at the end of August
PRINCETON, NJ — Unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 10.1% in September — up sharply from 9.3% in August and 8.9% in July. Much of this increase came during the second half of the month — the unemployment rate was 9.4% in mid-September — and therefore is unlikely to be picked up in the government’s unemployment report on Friday.
Certain groups continue to fare worse than the national average. For example, 15.8% of Americans aged 18 to 29 and 13.9% of those with no college education were unemployed in September.
The increase in the unemployment rate component of Gallup’s underemployment measure is partially offset by fewer part-time workers, 8.7%, now wanting full-time work, down from 9.3% in August and 9.5% at the end of July.
As a result, underemployment shows a more modest increase to 18.8% in September from 18.6% in August, though it is up from 18.4% in July. Underemployment peaked at 20.4% in April and has yet to fall below 18.3% this year.
Friday’s Unemployment Rate Report Likely to Understate
The government’s final unemployment report before the midterm elections is based on job market conditions around mid-September. Gallup’s modeling of the unemployment rate is consistent with Tuesday’s ADP report of a decline of 39,000 private-sector jobs, and indicates that the government’s national unemployment rate in September will be in the 9.6% to 9.8% range. This is based on Gallup’s mid-September measurements and the continuing decline Gallup is seeing in the U.S. workforce during 2010.
However, Gallup’s monitoring of job market conditions suggests that there was a sharp increase in the unemployment rate during the last couple of weeks of September. It could be that the anticipated slowdown of the overall economy has potential employers even more cautious about hiring. Some of the increase could also be seasonal or temporary.
Further, Gallup’s underemployment measure suggests that the percentage of workers employed part time but looking for full-time work is declining as the unemployment rate increases. To some degree, this may reflect a reduced company demand for new part-time employees. For example, employers may be converting some existing part-time workers to full time when they are needed as replacements, but may not in turn be hiring replacement part-time workers. Another explanation may relate to the shrinkage of the workforce, as some employees who have taken part-time work in hopes of getting full-time jobs get discouraged and drop out of the workforce completely — going back to school to enhance their education, for example, instead of doing part-time work. It is even possible that some workers may find unemployment insurance a better alternative than part-time work with little prospect of going full time.
Regardless, the sharp increase in the unemployment rate during late September does not bode well for the economy during the fourth quarter, or for holiday sales. In this regard, it is essential that the Federal Reserve and other policymakers not be misled by Friday’s jobs numbers. The jobs picture could be deteriorating more rapidly than the government’s job release suggests.

For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±1 percentage point.
Interviews are conducted with respondents on landline telephones and cellular phones, with interviews conducted in Spanish for respondents who are primarily Spanish-speaking. Each daily sample includes a minimum quota of 150 cell phone respondents and 850 landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas among landline respondents for gender within region. Landline respondents are chosen at random within each household on the basis of which member had the most recent birthday.
Samples are weighted by gender, age, race, Hispanic ethnicity, education, region, adults in the household, cell phone-only status, cell phone-mostly status, and phone lines. Demographic weighting targets are based on the March 2009 Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older non-institutionalized population living in U.S. telephone households. All reported margins of sampling error include the computed design effects for weighting and sample design.
In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.
