As Predicted Here – Obama Adminstration Revises Last Week’s Fudged Unemployment Numbers – Record Breaking Unemployment 19 Weeks In A Row

Remembers last weeks big aanouncement by the Obama White House – All the good unemployment news reported by a fawniung press …. 

Burried in today’s newspapers, you’ll be lucky if you can find this news report …… Again, the Obama Administration is “fudging the numbers”, wait until the numbers are revised upward yet again ……. empty political slogans don’t put food in people’s fridges, broken promises don’t help pay the rent …… 

New jobless claims drop to 601K

WASHINGTON – The number of newly laid-off Americans filing jobless claims fell more than expected last week. The Labor Department said Thursday that initial claims for unemployment benefits fell last week by 24,000 to a seasonally adjusted 601,000. That’s below analysts’ estimates of 615,000. (Over 615,000 at first count – a number to be revised upward. Twice as many people filed first time claims for unemployment last week as in the same week, 1 year ago. How the heck is that good news? Its like coming home and finding the Fire Department parked in the street in front of where your house stood earlier in the day, only to be told your house and garage burned to the ground. But their is good news, they saved the dog house. Sure, OK, yeah good news).

Still, the number of people claiming benefits for more than a week rose by 59,000 to more than 6.8 million, the highest on records dating to 1967.

The department also revised last week’s data on continuing claims, replacing what had been a drop of 15,000 with an increase of 6,000. That means continuing claims have set records for 19 straight weeks. The data lag initial claims by a week. Companies are reluctant to hire amid the longest recession since World War II. That makes it harder for the unemployed to find work. Still, the levels are far above what is customary in a healthy economy. Initial claims stood at 388,000 a year ago. The unemployment rate jumped to 9.4 percent in May, a 25-year high, as hundreds of thousands of people entered the labor market and began looking for work but couldn’t find it, the department said. As college graduates and other new entrants start searching for a dwindling number of jobs, economists expect the unemployment rate to rise even as layoffs subside. Some economists project the rate could near 11 percent by the middle of next year(2010). And many families are spending less as they deal with layoff fears and shrunken home equity and retirement accounts.

As predicted, last weeks alleged drop in unemployment was pure fiction – uneployment increased , again – the much reported and completely false claim that first time unemployment filings dropped to something just over 300,000 has simply disappeared – without a single retraction by any of the major newspapers. WQhere did last weeks 300,000 number come from. Employers in the US eliminated 300,000 jobs. Twice as many people, 600,000 lost their jobs, some of the lost jobs may only be temporary losses, at least 300,000 of those jobs are gone for good.

Who is preparing the Obama Administration’s  unemployment figures now? ACORN. Fudging the uneployment numbers to make a politican look good does nothing to help the unemployment. Later this month you will hear that unemployment has  surpassed the 10% mark.

  1. My best advice to get our country out of unemployment would be for those seeking work to go after the new jobs being created by Obama’s stimulus program. There are supposed to be at least 3 million jobs created; specifically, a huge amount of temporary and permanent positions are being created for the 2010 census. A non-profit organization is giving out scholarships to the first 1 millions users to sign up for their course packages, which are specifically tailored to these new stimulus jobs. I signed up last week for the census package and I only had to pay 25 dollars, with my scholarship covering the other $775. I plan on finishing my course within the next month so that I can add to my resume that I have completed a census training package… I feel like this would put me above most other applicants.
    The website is and I think it’s definitely worth checking out.

    McAUleys World: OK, this time I’m making an exception and posting one of the many “scam” responses that I receive on a daily basis. People who “pray on” the needy are reprehensible. DO NOT PAY FOR A COURSE TO BECOME A CENSUS TAKER – These programs are rip offs very similar to the organizations who want to “charge you a small fee” to help you “refinance your home loan with teh Government”. If your interested in becoming a “census taker” go directly to the US Census Web Site (it is multi lingual) here:

    The US Census Bureau states there are no accredited training courses. You can confirm this by contacting the US Census Bureau at 1-866-861-2010.

    As the site says, “Our recruiting efforts for 2009 census taker jobs has ended. However, our peak recruitment effort begins in the fall of 2009, with the majority of hiring taking place in the spring of 2010”. You can download the practice census test from the site.

    The “scholarship programs” are another example of Government waste of US Tax Dollars ……. another poltical payoff to shady groups “working the system” and frequently perverting the system.

    Good luck on replacing a full time job with a part-time position as a Census taker – hope you can hold on till next year for that part-time position ….. what a solution …. in the mean time the post I’m responding too wants to scam you for some of the cash you desparately need elsewhere.

    If you are one of the millions who have already applied for the limited number of openings, teh US Census Bureau reports, “If you have already applied for a census taker job, your application will remain active and you do not need to reapply. However, if you need to update your contact information provided on your application, you may do so by calling our toll-free Jobs Line at 1-866-861-2010 where you will be routed to your Local Census Office.”
