This just in from the Ministry of Truth! – 11/15/2012 Edition

Distortion!!! 

The Labor Department on Thursday said the number of people filing jobless claims last week rose to 439,000 from some other number…we’re not sure what it was because everything is DISTORTED!!

And what (we hear you ask) is the source of this distortion??

Our Comrades in the Ministry of Truth Annex (aka: the A/P) have rooted out the source…here’s their headline:

Superstorm Sandy pushes US jobless claims to 439K

They then helpfully explain:

The storm has affected the claims data for the past two weeks and may distort reports for another two weeks, the department has said.

Before the storm distorted the figures, weekly applications had fluctuated between 360,000 and 390,000 since January. At the same time, employers have added an average of nearly 157,000 jobs a month.

You see, it was that bit$h Sandy!!  SHE distorted the figures (speaking of “distored figures“…whatever happened to Madonna’s threat promise to strip if The Won won?)

Thanks to the awesomeness of Lord Obama, “Superstorm Sandy” has been vanquished…but will apparently still be “distorting reports for another two weeks” (kinda like voting from the grave…she must have been a Democrat).

But even though “Superstorm Sandy” has been vanquished, we remain at war with   Eurasia EastAsia Eurasia Eastasia Eurasia EastAsia Eurasia Eastasia…whom we have always been at war with.

 

This week’s Public Service Announcement

General Petreaus had sex…lots of sex.  In fact, if a “spontaneous mob” had hadn’t “accidentally ransacked” our Embassy in Benghazi over the “reprehensible video” (which now has over 4 views worldwide) they would done so over the very THOUGHT of Petreaus having sex!   (Speaking of “distored figures“…just imagine Petreaus naked!  )

Thankfully, Lord Obama has intervened and General Petreaus will not be having sex anymore…thus our country’s secrets (except for Gen. Petreaus’) will again be secure!!  Huzzah!

    I can’t determine whether the general officer corp are collectively a bunch of idiotic garden slugs, or whether obama is in the process of culling any general who doesn’t toe the communist line.

    We could probably do quite well if we eliminated Colonels and above completely, stopped the confirmation process by congress, and made the top officer rank lieutenant colonel. Non Coms and majors run the services anyway.

    obama is in the process of culling any general who doesn’t toe the communist line.

    A pliant military is a basic cornerstone of any dictatorship. The pentagon ass kissers are in the tank for this jerk. You will see a mass exodus of quality people from the military.

    One of the local commentators on news radio here made an interesting comment —

    — The press know the model of Mercedes the socialite drives, that the paint is peeling off their $1.8m house and that they have been sued to over a million.
    — The press does not care why a US ambassador and 3 other brave men were killed in a terrorist attack.

    That if the press spent as much time on the latter as they did the former Obama would have been toast on 9/12/2012.

    Hunker down, its going to be a rough 4 years if we last that long.

    Judge Napolitano correctly pointed out yesterday that the leaks of EVERY detail of Petreaus’ and his mistresses lives has been orchestrated starting from the moment Petreaus started to NOT toe the Party lne. They just waited to release it all until after election. Now they need the (once) good General firmly under the bus. HE is to blame for EVERYTHING.

    Bonus for the Regime: EVERYBODY has something in their past they are not proud…especially people in power!! And EVERYTHING about EVERYBODY can become known…very easily!

    the chilling effect on those in power…and those would OPPOSE them, is massive! Even if “reporters” were inclined to investigate The Won (LOL), they realize that THEY have something they’re not proud of too!

    Not to contradict the Ministry of Tooth, but if Hurricane Sandy was responsible for the increase in jobless claims, why were Pennsylvania and Ohio hardest hit?

    Some of the new claims, especially in New Jersey, were due to Hurricane Sandy–but these were offset by a decline in claims filed in New York. The highest numbers of new filings came from Pennsylvania and Ohio, where there were thousands of layoffs in the construction, manufacturing, and automobile industries.

    Both states had been targeted by the presidential campaigns. President Obama highlighted his record of job creation in Ohio in particular, focusing on the automobile industry. The state reported 6,450 new jobless claims in the week after the election–second-highest after Pennsylvania, which recorded 7,766 new claims.

    Thank you for phrasing your question correctly: “Not to contradict the Ministry of Tooth, but if Hurricane Sandy was responsible for the increase in jobless claims, why were Pennsylvania and Ohio hardest hit?

    Contradicting the Ministry of Truth would be to contradict TRUTH itself!! And we KNOW you would not want to do that.

    As for your question, the answer is “It’s technical” We would not want you to worry your scaly fish-head about it…especially since we pronounced the Age of Obama to be a time of Sunshine & Lollipops (please see comment #7 for affirmation of this).

    No dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between COMPLETE
    and FINISHED. However, in a recent linguistic conference held in London, England,
    and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese,
    was the clear winner.

    His final challenge was this: Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and
    FINISHED. Please explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED
    in a way that is easy to understand.

    Here is his astute answer: “When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE.
    But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one
    catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!”

    Jindal: “We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote. And, secondly, we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong.”

    What planet has he been on? Does he really think you can dangle the dream of a middle class in front of teat suckers and get them to buy in? They have been conditioned to believe that they are entitled to middle class trappings without actually having to work for it. The only way to get their vote is to offer them more free stuff. You show them the American dream of hard work and sacrifice for a middle class life, and they will laugh in your face…right before they will pop a cap in you and take your wallet.

    My Libertarian next-door neighbor (and fellow wine geek) voted for Obama. He’s kind of a more extreme version of WEC, and his reasons for voting for Obama are that he feels the whole house of cards is coming down anyway, and he wants a Socialist holding the bag when the SHTF. I have been kind of pissed at him, and haven’t really wanted to hang out with him, but now I’m seeing the wisdom in his POV. Not that I would ever have voted for Obama under any circumstances, but I’m of the mindset now to just let it come crashing down. Might make for a pretty good show.

    67 – 4 years ago, conservatives were walking around with stiffies over these 2. Turns out they are just like the others. I don’t know if they were principled men who were corrupted, or if they were posers from the get go. It really doesn’t matter. The GOP is corrupt, and it is corrupting. Not as bad as the Dems, but almost as bad and most certainly to blame for where we find ourselves. The past decade was the time when we most needed principled conservative leadership to beat down the threat of progressivism. Instead, we got the likes of Bush, Graham, McConnell, McCain, Boehner, Kris Krispie Kreme and the entire circus freakshow. As much as it feels good to blame the progressives, at the end of the day we have to be honest and say that the GOP was packed to the gills with RINOs and we had this coming to us.

    mullet – I don’t believe we will lose the 2nd amendment. Can you tell me who is going to turn in their guns? Or who is dumb enough to go door to door collecting said guns?

    #77 Yup. I cannot imagine many would willingly hand them over.

    just got home from work…quick thoughts:
    1- there was NO excuse to vote for Obama…or to not vote for Romney (the only man who could have defeated Obama) …WEC was dead wrong in 2012
    2- WEC is right now…the whole thing is now a total sham, since by 2016 we will indeed be “Fundamentally transformed”.
    3- the Supreme Court can make all the rules it wants…the 2nd Amendment will live on in the guns that will NEVER be turned in
    4- politics is NOT the answer…maybe it never was…but it sure as hell ain’t now
    5- Civil Disobedience is the only path forward…until it is time to be un-civil

    It’s not about collecting guns from the people. It will be a slow erosion of rights and gun features, like pistol grips, high capacity magazines, anything that looks like a military platform.

    And then they will make it illegal to transfer ownership, even passing guns down via your estate.

    All will be challenged in the courts, of course, but the Elena Kagans of the world will pass judgement.

    Over a generation or two, guns will cease to exist in private hands.

    He will distance himself from the tea party base as well. Phuque him.
    Maybe now we can get over this race pandering the GOP was toying with.

    A break up is probably the only logical solution to the problem. The fact that there are petitions in all the states would have been unheard of back in 2008. But there they are on the WH website. If it was pulled off without much heartache it would be just a matter of time before there would be reunification. The blue states (the cities in the blue states actually) would capitulate under a mountain of debt. I don’t know of a single democratic controlled city that has a fiscal surplus. None. They would come crawling to join in a reconstituted form with those that left. It might take 50 years or more. But it would happen.

    Jindal the same way.

    drdog & IP…the GOP has no chance of winning the White House again, because there are millions upon millions of us who only supported them as a FOIL for something worse. They have shown they cannot be that foil ever again…so to hell with them.

    the only winning strategy is NOT to play, eh?

    drdog…I believe there are lots of “Reagans” out there. BUT, the system (from all sides) is poised to destroy them long before they ever get near the reins of power…at almost any level.

    Romney is no Reagan…but he IS a decent man. And yet the Dems/media was able to portray him as an inhuman monster, lusting for money, determined to launch endless unjust wars, and intent on enslaving women (among others). (EVERY single thing in that list I had spouted at me by my Progressive acquaintances…EVERY ONE)

    America no longer wants Leadership…certainly not leadership based on American values.

    mullet, so now 18,000 UNION workers can thank their UNION for them being out of work. Of course, they’ll blame Mitt Romney, George Bush, Hurricane Sandy…etc.

    If I ran a business of any size in America right now, I would begin (quietly if possible) closing down. Certainly any company hiring right now is INSANE. I think you will see the word “Attrition” become the word of the net four years.

    the only winning strategy is NOT to play, eh?~~~

    ~~~~The enemy wins by default. As bitter as it is to admit, canis latrans MAY be correct.

    A republic madam, if we can keep it~~~We didn’t keep it.

    We lasted 200 + years which is about the norm for a “demokracy”.

    Slipping from a mobocracy to despotism is a rapid slide. We are always one generation
    away from barbarism. What made us think we would be any different?

    WEC wasn’t right then…but he is right NOW

    the chance in 2012 was to earn a CHANCE to avoid plunging of the cliff…that chance is gone, now we look to survive the plunge off the cliff

    Speaking of “cliffs”…the media (DUH!) is playing along with Obama’s “Tax the Rich!!” approach to avoiding the “Fiscal Cliff”. Even though everybody who understands anything KNOWS that Obama’s scheme raises only $80 billion…against a deficit of $1.4 TRILLION

    Obama’s scheme raises only $80 billion~~~JR

    The “rich” will arrange their finances to avoid much of that, including going galt.

    The nutless GOP will find a way to kick the can down the road for a few months,
    the go through this same crap later. A pox on both their houses.
