lets face FACTS

The BLS and OTHERS in the government

Slant and spin based on who is in charge

SIMPLE AS THAT

I repeat, when Bush was in office, your side said the same thing


I asked you an economic question, WHERE IS THE ANSWER? MO CURRY?

Their process is transparent. Show me where they're cooking their numbers.

New fee announced/found in ObamaCare. $63 per employee to be paid by employers to cover pre-existing conditions. Billions to be collected.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...n_2273005.html

But the best (and worst) part is that it wasn't in the bill. It came about as a result of the regulatory power the bill granted to executive branch agencies.

Surprise, surprise. So how much is this boondoggle going to really cost the American people.

Quick: Name the enterprise that is losing more than $1 trillion a year but is still hiring more than 100 new employees per day? Tough one, huh?

Sounds like a good price to me. Now I'd love for you to explain how such a minute cost could ever be passed onto the public instead of the company simply eating this tax.

Blake Fall-Conroy, “Minimum Wage Machine,” 2008-2010

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York.

This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

Here’s a piece that another artist is working on that could also help inspire change in the U.S. government. He’s trying to raise money to send every U.S. Senator a copy of Dr. Seuss’ “The Zax.” They clearly should have paid more attention to stories about compromise like this in kindergarten. Indiegogo.com/TheZaxProject.

I propose we send every U.S Senator a copy of this machine. And that turning that crank can be their job for the month. And if they don’t make enough money to pay their bills we call them lazy and tell them they should have just worked harder if they wanted things like houses, and food.

It's an unsourced opinion piece from a conservative blogger on HuffPo that has been picked up by the AP.

No documentation or sourcing for that claim.

But hey, it fits the Assclown Narrative, so I'm not the least bit surprised you're sharing it.

Even if it wasn't $63 dollars is pocket change. I wouldn't complain if this cost was directed at the workers as a tax since it's such a negligible amount of money that most people wouldn't even notice it if you didn't tell them.

And almost all of the fee on insurers is given back to them and little or no cost to patients. And zero insurance companies have come out to call this law a bad thing.

Why bitch?

No response, MO CURRY?

Of course NOT

We al know why!


and YES, The BLS and every governmental agency SPINS and DISTRACTS to satisfy the persons in charge


AN EMBARRASSING METRIC DISAPPEARS: Why are government statistics on taxpayer migration being discontinued? “The IRS and the U.S. Census Bureau (which provides technical support in reporting tax migration data) have not made an official announcement as to why the program is being discontinued. So we are left to speculate why such vital economic statistics suddenly got canceled. . . . The very idea of people voting with their feet is uncomfortable to some politicians.”

Hayek: “Everything which might cause doubt about the wisdom of the government or create discontent will be kept from the people. The basis of unfavorable comparisons with elsewhere, the knowledge of possible alternatives to the course actually taken, information which might suggest failure on the part of the government to live up to its promises or to take advantage of opportunities to improve conditions–all will be suppressed. There is consequently no field where the systematic control of information will not be practiced and uniformity of views not enforced.”

From The Road To Serfdom.

Fun Fact Of The Day: Federal Government Hiring Average Of 101 New Employees Every Day Since Obama Took Office…


A disgustingly bloated government bureaucracy being the hallmark of a Democratic presidency.

Via IBD:

You may have noticed some economic difficulties across the country in recent years among family, friends, neighbors, colleagues. One sector is doing quite nicely, however, under Barack Hussein Obama.

In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.

Under Obama the total federal workforce has surpassed two million for the first time since the first Clinton term, now sitting about the 2.2 ,million level.

Now comes a new poll revealing that Americans know what’s going on. A majority of Americans believes government workers make more money than private sector workers, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll. Sixty-one percent of private sector workers believe that.

Almost all of them in defense and homeland security in places approved by the Republican Congress. But let's not be specific because then conservatives will stop believing their own narrative.

This is why he doesn't deserve the respect of a straight answer. For the most part he's a disingenuous self centered asshole.

Turning a crank is harder work than people like veteman do for their government checks.
