This just in from the Ministry of Truth! – 6/7/2012 Edition

2012 June 7
by justrand

Glorious news from the Labor front! Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 12,000 to 377,000, from 383,000 389,000.  Ahem…they were ALWAYS 389,000.  [you have all been warned NOT to try and remember things on your own…you must trust US!]

Our Comrades at Reuters summed up the glorious news thusly:

The number of Americans lining up for new jobless benefits fell last week for the first time and have since April, a reminder that the wounded AWESOME Obama labor market is still slowly SPLENDIDLY healing SPLENDID!

We here at the Ministry are still giddy over last week’s AMAZING news that the Unemployment Rate had FALLEN to 8.2% from some really BIG number that Lord Obama inherited from the Evil “W”.  And we are sure YOU are still giddy as well…right?

We at the Ministry of Truth remember everything so that you only have to remember ONE thing: Trust Us!  Oh…and remember that we have always been at war with EastAsia Eurasia EastAsia Eurasia! (ok, that’s technically TWO things you have to remember)

This week’s Public Service Announcement:

Our magnificent Union Forces executed a classic strategic withdrawal from Wisconsin this past Tuesday!  The forces of Darkness (Koch Bros., “W”, Christians, etc) were tricked into coming to Wisconsin to back the nefarious Scott Walker, and are now trapped there!  A quick glance at a map shows that we now have them surrounded by several other States (and Canada).  Well done, Thugs Comrades!

    I just don’t understand ZERO Math. I made the mistake of looking back at the 5/24 numbers and that was a revision downward to 370,000 (from the week earlier of 372,000) but now the unemployment claims are 373,000 falling backwards from 389,000 or is that 383,000.

    Only in Obama world would jobless claims fall backwards from reported 370,000 @ 5/24/ to 389,000 (or 383K) @ 5/31 so they could fall forward to 377,000 @ 6/7.

    So… jobless claims have been climbing but in Obama world this would be people taking summer vacations and not being unemployed.

    as HotAir reminds us:
    Department of Labor has changed its rules. From now on, the government agency will forbid media outlets from bringing their own computers to the BLS “lockups” where the data is under embargo, due to concerns over market vulnerability. Instead, the government will force them to use the BLS’ own computer systems to report on government data.

    I wish I was making THAT up. From the BLS website:
    Media groups have until mid-June to remove their equipment from the lockup room and the first run under the new procedures is scheduled for July 6, when the next national jobless numbers are scheduled to be released.

    Yup…TRANSPARENCY!!

    key quote:
    Until Act 10 took effect in Wisconsin, the state seized dues on behalf of the unions whether employees wanted to fund the political efforts of the unions or not, which the unions then used to elect politicians that would keep enforcing those seizures. “

    #24 Kind of like Warren Buffett calling for the rich to pay higher taxes while refusing to send in a check on his own. If these folks really wanted what they preach, they’d figure out a way, but the only way they know how to get things done is by theft force. I wish it were the law for all unions- public and private sector- to have to collect dues from folks sending payments in, instead of using paycheck withdrawal.

    Paycheck payment will work to make people realize how much they have to pay in Taxes. The smartest thing ever devised by buerocrats was to deduct your taxes automatically from one’s paycheck. If we had to make a payment to the government every pay day, pretty soon the tax collectors would notice that no-one is paying taxes.

    I have believed that ZERO picked Biden for VEEP in order to appear intelligent in comparison. I suspect the same is true for DWS. So there is an additional advantage to Zero’s arrogance that none of his spokesmen/women can appear more intelligent or sharper than he.

    LOL — Rush going over the Obama “joke” that Michelle doesn’t go all the way down when doing her push-ups.

    Well of course Obama was clueless as to the double entendre about the “doesn’t go all the way down” when referencing his wife doing “push-ups” with Ellen DeGeneres.

    I find it doubtful that Obama has spent anytime thinking about Michelle in relationship to sex. First, his own arrogance would elminate his thoughts of anyone’s sex life but his own. Second, I am sure it isn’t Moosehell he would be thinking about when oral sex crosses his mind. Larry, Bobby, that Indian actor… maybe.

    Frankly I’ve never seen a picture of Moosehell where her jaw didn’t look tight, locked, and snapping. I certainly wouldn’t put anything I valued within reach of her snarl.

    This made me LOL! Especially the 2 I bolded:

    No one thinks Obama can solve the nation’s problems anymore, and even Obama’s biggest supporters are starting to lose faith in him. If he’s going to have any chance at reelection, he’s going to need to take some measure soon to make people have confidence in his administration. Since I like being helpful, I came up with some ideas:

    WAYS OBAMA CAN INCREASE CONFIDENCE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION

    * Start and end every speech with the phrase, “I’m very, very smart.”

    * Replace Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner with a eleven-year-old who knows how to use a calculator.

    * Make Joe Biden wear a helmet and mittens at all times.

    * Demonstrate an understanding of the middle class by publicly being seen reading an article about them in The Economist.

    * Put Harry Reid in a retirement home. One he can’t get out of.

    * Announce he won’t rest until he create some jobs or at least understands what one is.

    * Take an interest in public health by banning large sodas and children.

    * Dump a bucket of water on Nancy Pelosi so people can see she doesn’t melt.

    * Wear a mortarboard hat at all times so people know he’s smart like that owl in the Tootsie Pop commercial.

    * Be publicly seen with dogs while very conspicuously not eating them.

    #63 Comment #5 in that article is downright hysterical:

    Were all of the 4 Democrats in the race authentic Democrats? Or were some of them “ringers” recruited by the Republicans to split the Democrat vote? In any event, the result in this district illustrates the benefit of recruiting “ringers” to run as “preferring” the other major party.

    Because that totally didn’t happen in the Feinstein race AT ALL!!!!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 4 to 2 does not compare in any way to 6 dems vs 14 Republicans. Total coincidence, I am sure. Moron. We got a Republican in the top two for that race, so NEENER.
