Dale’s Observations For 2010-07-02

CA Appeals Court: The governor may lower state workers' pay to the minimum wage if a state budget isn't in place. http://bit.ly/b3sk99 #

HCR may mean longer emergency room waits and more crowding. Unexpectedly! http://usat.me?39117590 #

RT @LeftCrusader: The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that non-farm jobs fell from 133,549k in Jan09 to 130,470k today. That's -3.079m. #

RT @LeftCrusader: The 3 million jobs lost is a complete bullshit talking point by fixed news. | Its the official BLS non-farm employm't no. #

RT @LeftCrusader: @DaleFranks CLinton creatd 20 m and Carter created 10m n 1 term. | Under Reagan, 17.7m jobs were created. So do I win? #

RT @LeftCrusader: Bush creatd just over a million [jobs] n 8 years. | And 3m+ jobs have disappeared in 18 months of Obama. #

RT @LeftCrusader: @DaleFranks CLinton creatd 20 m and Carter created 10m n 1 term. | *shrug* That's irrelevant to your claim about Obama. #

RT @LeftCrusader, re: Obama creating jobs v. Bush. BLS payroll employment: 2001-2009, +1.86m jobs. Since 2009, -3.079 jobs. Ur math sucks. #

Factory orders fall 1.4% in May after 9 months of gains http://usat.me?39114292 #RecoverySummer #

Official unemployment rates: Jun 09: 9.5%, Jun 10: 9.5%. Actual unemployment rates: Jun 09: 11.4%, Jun 10: 13.1% #

Isn't it interesting how, as unemployed people get discouraged and stop looking for work, the unemployment rate declines? That's by design. #

Using the historical labor force participation rate (66.2%), the actual unemployment rate is 13.1%, up from 12.8% last month. #

In June, 125k jobs lost, yet the unemploym't rate went DOWN to 9.5%, says the BLS. Unemploym't rate is really lowballed. #RecoverySummer #

Anderson Cooper: It's inconceivable that on Day 73 of the oil spill, we're still talking about getting skimmers to start working on the oil. #

The general opinion seems to be that the Feds are incompetent buffoons. #

Billy Nungesser, Plaqumines Parish President, says he's not asking the CG permission to do anything, and the Feds can suck it. #

Watching Anderson Cooper on CNN right now, tearing the Feds a new one for lack of transparency in the oil cleanup efforts. He seems PO'd. #

RT @AblativMeatshld: CA Welfare Recipients Withdraw $12k From Strip Club ATMs http://fxn.ws/d5s4EY" | Meh. I could do that by myself. #
