    Yup, I listened to Rush today...:lol:..

    ...and it seems by September the 20 week extension of unemployment with be canceled for all remaining States to make the unemployment numbers look good for the Obama 2012 election. Well, as we all know the unemployment figures are bullshit at best and many more unemployed will be filed under non-existent (unaccounted for) and also be receiving no unemployment benefits.

    -- but Obama will look good to the uninformed for lower unemployment figures and blaming the Republicans is standard procedure I guess, so expect that and choose sides..

    (I tried to get a link with some information on this but failed but I'm thinking this Obama ploy on the American people will be coming out soon...:eusa_shifty:)

    He timed the extension of 99 weeks to expire within the last 3 months......now to get the rest of those suckers off the role so it looks better.

    I don't think he's going to look too good to those that don't have a job.

    If you are unemployed, whether or not you are collecting Unemployment has no effect on the unemployment numbers.

    Bureau of Labor Statistics

    There is a list of questions they ask in their surveys, and none of them ask if the person is collecting Unemployment.

    Hmm....sounds as if he is slowly cooking his own goose. I just wish more people cared about the charade going on in WA with the American people by their own president most of them voted into office, but they just don't want to face or research the truths....
