“Watch Me Pull a Rabbit Unemployment Figures Outta My Hat

Magic Ass!

The BLS has announced that as a result of the Labor Day weekend, 9 states (among which the biggest one California) did not report initial claims data to the bean counters, so instead the government had to “estimate” what the data would have been: yep, estimate, what the data was in these nine states.

Since the government got to make-it ALL up, GUESS which way unemployment went?

Oh, COME ON!!!! guessguessguess

YES! It. Went. D.O.W.N.

New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week to a two-month low, while the trade deficit narrowed sharply in July, hopeful signs for the stuttering economic recovery.

I sh*t you not.

“Unexpectedly HOPEful”, even.

    I won’t even bother looking up the states before assuming that the 9 had democrat governors.

    The only people who could be described as “hopeful” are the poor schmucks out of a job, the Demonrats, and the idiot bureaucrats sucking up to the Demonrats.

    Congratulations to the employees of the the other 48 states(57-9). They obviously worked that Labor Day since they got the stats in. That shared sacrafice thingy is really catching on. You might see really good numbers for all of this month. These are the last numbers used for the big headline number before the election. The October numbers won’t come out until after the election.
