ran 3.7 miles
A dismal 80,000 new jobs in June, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Odds are they are fluffing the pillow to make our heads a little more comfortable. With that in mind, 85,000 workers abandoned employment for Disability insurance in the same month, according to the Social Security Administration. If this is the best they could do to feather numbers to not be quite so barbed and abrasive then one can only wonder how much deeper the hole goes.

This is a quote from Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Alan Krueger:

"It is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.”

That statement would not be so insulting to our intelligence and our ability to look around and observe for ourselves what is happening to America and our economy if it had not been the thirty-first time the White House issued the very same statement since November, 2009. Thirty-one separate times the White House has urged Americans to not read too much into these numbers and to consider other data. This is over the span of thirty-one months and these reports come out once a month. Every single one of them came with the same fool's disclaimer. And half of this country is chewing this cardboard up and swallowing it just because their government tells them it's steak.

The best part of this video is when he meekly throws in that the progress he has made is why he is running for a second term. I think he came close to clearing his throat as he said it to muffle any bit of sincerity that may have surfaced.
