The REAL unemployment figure is at least TWICE that level!

And if the government isn't FORCED to ARREST any and ALL employers of illegals, the problems with employment will get worse!

The massive number of mexicans brought in by the gas contractors are a PRIME example of contractors that MUST be charged and arrested!!

Time for law enforcement to stop looking the other way and DO THEIR JOB!!!!

But 278,000 of these April jobs are PART-TIME. Which would seem to indicate we LOST 113,000 FULL-TIME jobs!

Now that's LEANING FORWARD!

From Catholic Online for the low hunging information posters:

"The Pentagon has confirmed that soldiers who share their faith with others may be court martialed and punished. They have said the cases will be decided individually. The decision could eliminate the position of chaplain in the military.

This must make Obama feel really uncomfortable.

Depending on what is meant by "proselytization" it could be a crime to serve in the military while being Christian.

Atheists to the front?

Wonder, You are correct! The REAL history of the last several years shows that income inequality has INCREASED due to this administrations fiscal policy. From the VERY Liberal Daily Kos, ""The evidence suggests that QE cash ends up overwhelmingly in profits, thereby exacerbating already extreme income inequality and the consequent social tensions that arise from it," Joshi says in a new report.

He points out that real wages – adjusted for inflation – have fallen in both the US and UK, where QE has been a key tool for boosting growth." "In Germany, meanwhile, where there has been no quantitative easing, real wages have risen."

QE has diminished the buying power of the dollar and the middle/lower bear the brunt!

woonderliar doesn't care that under her Messiah, the average family income in the USA dropped from almost $53,000 to $49,000 in spite of all the rhetoric about taxing the rich and benefiting MAIN STREET not Wall Street.

Mental midgets just don't get it.

Poverty does not cause crime. Crime DOES cause poverty.

Example. Poor children with parents who work hard and impose strict discipline generally turn out fine.

Poor children from welfare households with parents who see them as only a welfare check tend to do poorly.

Crime causes poverty because crime ridden areas cannot attract businesses to invest in the community. Who wants to open a grocery store in the ghetto? With high crime rates, investment goes elsewhere. Thus, no jobs, no tax revenues, no hope.

Being poor is no excuse for behaving worse than any animal.

Respect yourself and others, stay out of criminal activity, don't make babies, educate yourself and work hard and you will generally be okay. Maybe not rich like Tony Montana but that is a movie, anyway.

Wheeling has been inundated by new faces attracted to the fertile welfare breeding ground it has become. Decent working people and investors will take their investment, and spending, elsewhere.

And more....

And many are contending with high levels of student loan debt. Nearly 1 in 5 U.S. households had college debt in 2010, according to a Pew analysis from last year.

While the young people themselves are bearing the brunt of America’s youth unemployment problem, the rest of us will likely also have to face its consequences. Studies have shown a clear link between youth joblessness and a boost in crime rates.

And there is more blah, blah, blah from the Huffington Post:

And it doesn’t seem like things will get better for America’s young people any time soon. Demos found that the U.S. economy will have to create more than 4 million jobs before young adults will be employed at levels similar to those before the recession. In addition, 16.1 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 were out of work in April, according to Generation Opportunity, a nonpartisan youth advocacy group.

Of those young people that are employed, many are working in jobs they’re overqualified for. More than 40 percent of those who graduated college in the last two years are working in a job that doesn't require their degree, according to an Accenture survey cited by CNNMoney. In addition, 284,000 college graduates had minimum-wage jobs last year.

From the Huffington Post:

"In the constant race to be the best America is falling behind other large, wealthy nations in at least one major category: Employing the nation’s youth.

In 2000, the United States had the lowest unemployment rate for 25- to 34-year-olds among countries with large, wealthy economies. By 2011, America had one of the highest youth unemployment rates compared to its peers, according to a New York Times op-ed by David Leonhardt, the paper’s Washington bureau chief.

How did the table’s turn on America’s youth? As unemployment soared during the Great Recession, young people -- with and without college degrees -- were forced to compete with more experienced candidates suddenly out of a job for very few openings. The result: Nearly half of the nation’s unemployed are under the age of 34, according to a report last month from public policy organization Demos.

And it doesn’t seem like things will get better for America’s young people any time soon. Demos f

From the DOL Report:

The number of people unemployed for 27 weeks or more -- defined as long-term unemployment -- fell by 258,000 to 4.4 million in April, an indication that many people gave up finding work. Long-term unemployment dropped from 39.6 percent of all unemployed workers to 37.4 percent in April.

The department said the number of people working part-time involuntarily, usually because their hours at work were cut back or they could not find full-time work, rose by 278,000 to 7.9 million in April "largely offsetting a decrease in March."

In addition, 2.3 million people in April were counted as marginally attached to the workforce, which is defined as unemployed people who have looked for work in the past year but not in the past four weeks.

Whefleeing and Croaker are just whistling past the graveyard because they are scared sh**less something is going to jump out and get them.

Obamascare is just now beginning and all indications are it is VASTLY WORSE than anything the right has been warning about.

Keep smoking your weed and pretending judgment day isn't going to come.

Everyone knows the unemployment numbers are bogus. The true intention of the left is to create full employment numbers so the unemployment number is zero. I say it again. The left's true intention is to "Change" America to be like Red China. That is there goal. They even have many useful idiots thinking that life would be better if the USA became like China. All for the "Common Good" The only thing standing in their way is the Christian people in this country. Many of whom are armed with the second amendment. Did you see where the Govt. is now even trying to make it a crime for Christian servicemen to pray while in service to their country. The Constitution will not work for an immoral people. Hence the Left wants rid of it. Yes, everything they do is with their Agenda in mind. Even the unemployment numbers.
