Figures don't Lie - -
But Liars Figure

SURPRISE!!  Four days before the General Election, we get a skewed, totally misleading Unemployment Figure from the Obama Administration Department of Labor. 

Today, they touted a 21,000 reduction in Initial Claims using a Seasonally (Politically?) Adjusted Rate.

However, the actual number of Initial Claims, according to the DOL, is actually INCREASED by 11,678. 

Does it make you or your neighbor that the Obama Administration lowered the number of people filing new claims through a mathematical formula that they develop?  Is this part of the Hopey Changey thing?

How do you feel about the fact that the real percentage of Americans who want a full time job and cannot find one is actually over 20%?

Will their Seasonally Adjusted numbers somehow be revised next week -- after the Election?  (Happened more than 20 weeks this year.)

Republicans -- The Party of Know! 

Stay tuned for the next sleight of hand by the Party of Snow!
