    Everybody knows how the DOL takes raw data and distorts it to lie to the gullible public. If we just take the raw Unemployment Insurance Claims Numbers and look at them, we can clearly see how they are manipulated to confuse the public and deceive the elect.

    Below are the 50 states reports to the Federal Government:

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 452,271 in the week ending Aug. 29

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 453,936 in the week ending Aug. 22

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 454,216 in the week ending Aug. 15

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 479,824 in the week ending Aug. 8

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 463,062 in the week ending Aug. 1

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 507,464 in the week ending July 25

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 580,944 in the week ending July 18

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 667,534 in the week ending July 11

    The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 577,506 in the week ending July 4


    You will note that if you look back at the Federal Releases on this data, it never agrees with the reported state's numbers. Why? because in some months, the DOL wants to pretend that those people who filed for UI simply do not know what they are talking about. Remember, if Big Brother says you do no exist, you DO NOT EXIST even if you think you do. You are obviously confused and need to "get your mind right." (My second favorite phrase from the movie Cool Hand Luke. The other is, "What we have here is a failure to communicate."

    What we have with the Federal Government is a failure to communicate the truth. They take away the numbers of the UI claims in some months and add to the numbers in other months. Supposedly the numbers will balance over a year's time, but they never do. The error is always in favor of making the annual economy look better than it really is.

    Consider the report for the week ending in July 11th. It read as follows:

    "In the week ending July 11, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 522,000, a decrease of 47,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 569,000. The 4-week moving average was 584,500, a decrease of 22,500 from the previous week's revised average"

    What the hell! The States reported 667,534 actual people filed Unemployment Insurance Claims in that week. Those people were formerly employed and knew that they were entitled to their Unemployment Insurance. Unbelievable Dishonesty! Yet, the Government thinks nothing of changing the numbers around. Those people who were in excess of 522,000 simply do not exist and they need to get their minds right and realize that they do not exist and stop filling out those paper forms. Right or Wrong?

    About two to three million people a month during this past year have been losing their jobs and filing for UI. In Twelve months time that is between Twenty six to thirty million people who were employed who found out that they were not employed. According to the government, that is insignificant and the actual number to be concerned with is their half a million to quarter of a million jobs that have been lost.

    Most of the people that I speak to have no idea that we are losing over thirty million jobs a year from people who work jobs that pay into UI. Now, how about all those people who work jobs that do not pay into UI? How many of them have lost their jobs and have no recourse? How many of them are trying to live on fifty percent of what they used to make? How about forty or thirty percent. Are they unemployed as far as their wives and children are concerned. Sometimes it is better to just go on Welfare and tell Dad to get lost until he comes up with a real job, which dad can not find because there are no "real" jobs available to a man with his skill sets.

    What a mess this is.

    They also do not account for those who's unemployment has ran out even with extensions. Very, very few jobs in many areas of the country.

    Here's a site that capsulates all of the government info on the topic for the recent past through August '09:

    Employment Situation Summary

    And some highlights:

    THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- AUGUST 2009


    Nonfarm payroll employment continued to decline in August (-216,000),
    and the unemployment rate rose to 9.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor
    Statistics reported today.

    <snip>

    Household Survey Data

    In August, the number of unemployed persons increased by 466,000 to 14.9
    million, and the unemployment rate rose by 0.3 percentage point to 9.7
    percent.

    <snip>

    Among the marginally attached, the number of discouraged workers in
    August (758,000) has nearly doubled over the past 12 months. (The data
    are not seasonally adjusted.) Discouraged workers are persons not cur-
    rently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for
    them. The other 1.5 million persons marginally attached to the labor
    force in August had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the
    survey for reasons such as school attendance or family responsibilities.
