Obama said JOBS would be Job One

If we had the same Employment-Population ratio now as we had in December 2006 (after 12 continuous years of the Republicans holding 2+ of the House, Senate, and Presidency), well over 11.7 Million more people would be employed right now!

    Saw this on facebook. Had to share! LOL

    I live in a resort town that attracts a ton of liberals from NYC. They all come on the weekends and jam up the roadways, grab all the parking spots at the beach and stores, etc. For us locals, it becomes impossible to live normally. During the summer, the town generates lots of money writing parking tickets. If you violate the meter by 10 seconds, you get a ticket.

    That said, yesterday, I walk out of the food store and there is a cop writing a ticket. I scream, “Are you kidding me — stick the ticket up your a*s”. He says nothing. Instead, he writes another ticket for bald tires. I grow angrier, “You’re a loser – what’s wrong they won’t let you do real police work?” He writes another ticket for worn windshield wipers. I continue giving him hell; he continues writing tickets. I end the verbal assault, “Officer, have a nice day.” I then cross the street, unlock my bicycle and pedal away.

    That’s what you get when I see your car bearing an OBAMA 2012 sticker. Pay back is a bitch

    Reed Hayes is a court qualified handwriting and document examiner whose business is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. He has nearly 40 years of handwriting related experience, and has worked as an international consultant and speaker. Never heard of him? Well, Hayes is the Certified Document Examiner (CDE) who produced the 40 page opinion referenced in the Mike Zullo affidavit that was submitted to the Alabama Supreme Court in the Obama eligibility case and his report concluded that the Obama birth certificate image, located at WhiteHouse.gov is a complete fabrication.

    It has been reported that Mr. Hayes has been hounded by Obama operatives to discover the details of his 40-page forensic analysis of the Obama pdf birth certificate. He has been referring them to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, who now legally own his report, for further information.

    I also found it interesting that someone sided with the Obama administration and attempted to bring up dirt on Hayes by pointing out that he was a homosexual with a “partner,” who is now deceased. Isn’t that interesting? Why would that be considered “dirt” from the Obama side? Isn’t he the one telling us that is “normal” and isn’t he the one helping to push the homosexual agenda along? Ah, the hypocrisy!

  4. Repeating a comment I made on an earlier post, with the explanation and numbers behind the statement:

    If we had the same Employment-Population ratio now as we had in December 2006 (after 12 continuous years of the Republicans holding 2+ of the House, Senate, and Presidency), well over 11.7 Million more people would be employed right now!

    From January 3, 1995 to January 2, 2007, Republicans controlled a majority (2+ out of 3) of the House, Senate, and Presidency.

    During those 12 straight years, 144 consecutive months from January 1995 – December 2006, the average monthly Employment-Population ratio was 63.3%.

    President Bush and the Republican majority in Congress actually ended slightly above average at 63.4% in December 2006.

    From January 3, 2007 to present, Democrats have controlled a majority (2+ out of 3) of the House, Senate, and Presidency.

    During the last nearly 6.5 years, 77 consecutive months from January 2007 – May 2013, the average monthly Employment-Population ratio has been 59.9%.

    And during Obama’s pResidency, the average monthly Employment-Population Ratio has been 58.7%, and he hasn’t had a month above his average since August 2009.

    The worst month under Bush was better than the best month under Obama.

    Last month, May 2013, was yet another below-average month, even by Obama’s low standards, as the Employment-Population Ratio was 58.6%.

    If we had the same level of Employment-Population Ratio now as we had under Bush and the Republican Congress in December 2006, well over 11.7 Million more people would be employed.

    The difference (63.4% – 58.6%) is 4.8% of our civilian noninstitutional population age 16 years+.

    If we had the same Employment-Population ratio now as we had in December 2006 (after 12 continuous years of the Republicans holding 2+ of the House, Senate, and Presidency), well over 11.7 Million more people would be employed right now!

    According to table A-1, the civilian noninstitutional population age 16 years+ in March 2013 was 245,363,000.

    4.8% * 245,363,000 = 11,777,424

    Over 11.7 Million people who are not employed now, but would be if we had the same Employment-Population ratio now as we had in December 2006 when Republicans last controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency!

  5. The U.S. jobs picture is bleaker than the most recent jobs reports may make you think. The economy added 175,000 jobs last month, but at the rate things are going, it would take almost a decade to get back to prerecession employment levels. A Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey report released Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics digs in on the bad news: The number of job openings in the U.S. actually fell by 118,000 in April to 3.8 million …
