Friday, October 5 - September unemployment numbers came out, showing a drop in unemployment from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September. These are the government’s numbers, of course. Of course, When we take into account those with only seasonal jobs (for the holidays coming up), plus those who would like full-time work but, because of the economy, can only find part-time work, plus all of the jobless who have stopped looking for work and thus are not considered part of the unemployment numbers at all, the (U-6) unemployment rate is actually 14.7 percent. This is the number that matters, even though it is not the number that is ever reported.
The government says 114,000 jobs were created in September. These are the numbers President Obama will obviously be touting in the next month between now and the election, declining to mention that 342,000 left the workforce last month. (Which means there was a net loss of 228,000 jobs.)
Now, I am not at all a professional analyst, or even an amateur analyst, but when one considers that September unemployment saw a 0.3-point drop from August’s unemployment numbers, it should mean that 939,000 jobs were added in September. But, again, the government says only 114,000 were created. So something smells.
Saturday, October 6 - I was out of commission today with a wicked sinus infection. It was like my body was America and Obama was the infection. But it’s slowly going away and will ultimately be defeated.
Sunday, October 7 - Venezuela held its presidential elections today. Henrique Capriles is the challenger to Obama’s Communist dictator buddy, President Hugo Chavez. Godspeed to Capriles.
Stacey Dash, some black actress, endorsed Mitt Romney today. Yes, it matters that she’s black, unfortunately. That’s what liberals’ calling every non-supporter of Obama a racist has done.
Monday, October 8 - I woke up this morning to news that Hugo Chavez won re-election in Venezuela. Though I should probably put quotation marks around “won.” Congratulations to Chavez and to all his supporters—Danny Glover, Sean Penn, Barack Obama….
Tuesday, October 9 - President Obama has finally decided to become a serious candidate and go after the important issues, like “Sesame Street” and Romney’s desire to cut PBS’s $300-some-million in taxpayer money. This is what the President loses sleep over, apparently. So an ad was put out by the Obama campaign this morning that only a few hours later turned around to bite them in the butts when everybody started laughing at the campaign. The ad is so absurd that even the owner’s of “Sesame Street” have asked that the ad be taken down and never shown again, for the love of God, never again.
Josh Romney, one of Mitt’s sons, said this has father learned how to debate an obstinate child because Josh was one growing up. The implication (and funny joke) was of coures that Barack Obama is an obstinate child. Liberals, paranoid delusionals that they are, took to immediately calling Josh Romney a racist, because, you see, “obstinate child” is a code-word for “boy,” and “boy” is code for “nigger.” This confirms once and for all that the mainstream of the Democratic Party is made up of craaaaaazy people. Crazy.
Wednesday, October 10 - State Department officials testified before Congress today regarding the September 11 attacks on the US embassy in Benghazi, Libya. I won’t even pretend that I read any of the write-ups of the testimonies. All I know is the jury did not hand down a verdict, Bible’s were not thrown at blind attorneys, no one has been given the death sentence, and Obama is not in jail. What I don’t know? Whether the scene even involved a courtroom at all. You can tell me, though; read about it here.
The Obama administration, according the former White House Press Secretary for Obama, Robert Gibbs (the one with the sickly pallor), has no intention of removing their “Sesame Street” ad, despite the production company’s request to do so. How wonderful it would be if the Obama administration gets taken to court by “Sesame Street” and must defend, before all the nation, their ridiculous obsession with Big Bird!
Thursday, October 11 - Tonight was the night of the big vice presidential debate, moderated by a woman whose wedding Barack Obama attended and whose ex-husband Obama appointed to head the FCC. No circle-jerk going on here, folks, move along, move along.
Joe Biden came out onto the stage in a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe, which was just too adorable. I thought it was nice of ABC to allow him to bring his action figures to the table, too. (Okay, I didn’t actually get to see the debate. I was busy getting lost in D.C. on my way to a concert, seeing that concert, and then getting lost on the way back. It’s as if the government designed the infrastructure of that wretched town.)
