Cooking the Books to Manipulate our Perception

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Much of the statistics which the Main Stream Media presents to us as “gospel” , is actually “good” news based upon group – think.

 Highly misleading statistics based upon  political expediency.

This morning , the unemployment statistics reflected 180,000 + new private sector jobs created and an unemployment rate that fell to 8.9 %.

This is great news and heralds  a further steps towards economic recoveryand a renewal of the American dream!!! 

Yay!!!

Let the good times roll !!!

WRONG !!

The reduced 8.9 % unemploment represents only the number of people actually drawing unemployment cheks.

How about those who’s unemployment insurance has expired.

How about those unemployed who have given up on looking for work.

How about people who have been forced totake part time jobs , or “1099” off the books low wage employment.

The shameless agenda , constantly fostered upon an unsophisticated public, is irresponsible  and down right unethical  if not criminally misleag.

Wall Street embraces the Government statistics, while Main Street continues to plod along, bewildered by the facts and the continuing lack of jobs, and the insidious encroachment of real inflation( including food and transportation costs).
