Today's unemployment figure of 7.8% is a sick joke. If we had a truly independent news media they would be screaming to high heaven about how the Bureau of Labor Statistics searched high and low and conveniently, for President Obama, discovered some 800,000 jobs last month.
There they were, just sitting in the pantry or something.
With the obvious manipulation of job numbers and the phony measures of inflation, we're this close to becoming a friggin' banana republic.
