The numbers don't lie, but the president does

Who to believe? I know who and what I believe and the fairly tale that Barack Obama told the American people last night at the democrat national convention, simply don't jive with the numbers or the truth.

To listen to the president, you would think that we have all gone through some minor inconvenience over the last four years and that he has had absolutely nothing to do with. Bull feathers!

Barack Obama made a speech in 2008 where he lambasted then president Bush and asserted that it was time for the president to own his record. Well mr. president, it is time for you to own your record and your record sticks to the high heavens.  More than a third of America is out of work and with no hope of finding work. Which means they are existing off of public assistance, food stamps and unemployment. that cannot be sustained.

Your presidency cannot be sustained and America cannot survive under your fantasy world of egalitarianism. It is time for you to go.

Record 88,921,000 Americans ‘Not in Labor Force’

The number of Americans whom the U.S. Department of Labor counted as “not in the civilian labor force” in August hit a record high of 88,921,000.
The Labor Department counts a person as not in the civilian labor force if they are at least 16 years old, are not in the military or an institution such as a prison, mental hospital or nursing home, and have not actively looked for a job in the last four weeks. The department counts a person as in “the civilian labor force” if they are at least 16, are not in the military or an institution such as a prison, mental hospital or nursing home, and either do have a job or have actively looked for one in the last four weeks.
In July, there were 155,013,000 in the U.S. civilian labor force. In August that dropped to 154,645,000—meaning that on net 368,000 people simply dropped out of the labor force last month and did not even look for a job.
There were also 119,000 fewer Americans employed in August than there were in July. In July, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 142,220,000 Americans working. But, in August, there were only 142,101,000 Americans working.
