BLACKS/HISPANCS UNEMPLOYMENT SOARS

U.S. payrolls expanded by just 80,000 net jobs in June keeping the unemployment rate flat at 8.2 percent, new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows.

The private sector only expanded by some 84,000 positions.

Economists polled by Bloomberg had forecast a gain of 100,000 positions during the month, with private payrolls advancing 106,000.

The disappointing report, which follows several months of weak economic gains, has sent U.S. markets sharply lower.

Millan Mulraine, an economist with TD Securities, attributed the gains to the manufacturing industry, which improved by 11,000 jobs this June. The service sector added 71,000 positions, down from 81,000 a month earlier.

However, Mulraine said the new data continues to emphasize the stagnating labor market recovery.

“The slow pace of jobs growth underscores the weakening economic growth momentum and reinforces the perception that the economy has remain mired in another soft patch,” Millan says. “With the labor market recovery appearing to be stalled, the case for further policy accommodation will likely be strengthened, particularly given the benign inflationary background.”

The report comes in sharp contrast to private payrolls data out of ADP just a day earlier that showed the economy expanded by 179,000 in June. That figure caused many analysts on Wall Street to raise their expectations going into this morning’s announcement.

Adding further pressure to President Obama heading into the election, Hispanic and Latino unemployment remained essentially unchanged at 11.0 percent.

The unemployment rate for white men and women was unchanged at 7.4 percent, while 184,000 more black American’s went without a job in June, for an unemployment rate of 14.4 percent.

May and April data were also revised during the month. In April, the BLS now estimates the economy added 68,000 jobs from an earlier report of 77,000. At the same time, employment grew by 77,000 in May, up from last month’s report of 69,000.

ALL YOU BLACKS AND HISPANICS HOW’S OBAMA WORKING FOR YOU?  STILL GONNA VOTE FOR THE SOCIALIST—WAKE UP HE IS TAKING YOU FOR A RIDE

Talking Your Head Off

The Liberal commentator I respect the most is honest, intelligent, sincere, a well-regarded scholar of jurisprudence, and deeply versed in the ways of Washington.  What he has to say on any policy or issue is almost always welcome as a salubrious counterweight to any tendency to oversimplify on the part of Conservatives. 

And yet in spite of all this, when the Big Moments arise for Democrats and they regard it as paramount to score a victory in the public relations domain, this intellectual paragon instantly reverts to a flat-out regurgitation of the Demonbatic National Committee’s weekly talking points; it is eerily as though the Committee invades the man’s mind and substitutes its programming for his independent thought, like a Civil Defense agency expropriating television time. 

Around about 1994 I recognized a phenomenon` I’ve been watching take place 52 times a year ever since, and I’ll regale you with it in the form of Thompson’s Law of Demonbatic Talking Points: 

By listening to the Demonrat guests on the Sunday morning talk shows, you will learn precisely what all the other Democrats appearing in the media throughout the following six days are going to say, how they’re going to say it, and in what order they’re going to arrange its component segments. 

Trust me.  This is not infallible in Roman Catholic Church-speak.  This is INFALLIBLE.

TEA PARTY LEADER SAYS–‘We Have Compromised Our Way Into Disaster’

Mark Meckler, 49, the co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots in the United States, talks to SPIEGEL about the US debt ceiling, the radical right’s uncompromising fight against the national debt and the “complete economic disaster” he claims President Barack Obama has created.

SPIEGEL: The world is looking at Washington and sees gridlock and chaos. How much have the negotiations over the United States’ debt ceiling hurt America’s standing in the world?

Meckler: Saying that these debates have hurt our image is absurd. What you currently see in Washington is one of the most responsible debates ever about the size and scope of government. The world should look at what is going on in the United States as a model for what should happen in all countries.

SPIEGEL: We look at it and see a Congress held hostage by a small group of radical Tea Party members unwilling to agree to any budget compromise and risking a US default.

Meckler: What do you mean by “a small group?” Forty-one percent of voters in the last US election said they agreed with Tea Party values. And the primary values of the Tea Party are about fiscal responsibility.

SPIEGEL: But you are willing to accept a US default if your demands for massive budget cuts and no tax increases are not met. That seems rather irresponsible or even unpatriotic. Most leading economists forecast financial “Armageddon” in that case.

Meckler: Default is a false threat. We take in over $220 billion in revenues every month and our debt service is only roughly $20 billion. The only way we will default is if the President of the United States makes the irresponsible choice not to pay our debts. We Tea Party Patriots put principles first, and we have to understand what America is about. Our country was founded on an idea: liberty. But it requires fiscal responsibility for people to be free. We are becoming slaves to our own government. Every US family now owes $400,000 to $500,000 in national debt. We Tea Party Patriots fight for the future of the nation, and there can be nothing more patriotic than that.

SPIEGEL: Democracy is not just about winning fights. It can only function if all parties are open to compromise.

Meckler: The compromises that we have witnessed on debt have taken our country to the brink of financial collapse. Currently, the American government is spending 44 cents of each dollar on interest payments. We have compromised our way into disaster. None of the budget plans proposed have real cuts in them — only promises to cut. The reality is that legally one Congress cannot bind the future Congress to cut, so these promises are actually a lie. We need real and immediate cuts.

SPIEGEL: The budget plan proposed by Republican speaker John Boehner contained massive spending cuts. Why were you so unwilling to embrace it?

Meckler: Look closely at the plan: It proposes $22 billion in cuts in the upcoming fiscal year. That is ridiculously little. It is the equivalent in the United States of shutting off the lights on Friday night and reopening at your normal rate of spending on Monday.

SPIEGEL: The plan also rules out any tax increases to close the deficit, though. Even the plan of the Democrats does not mention new taxes. So your movement already won the debate over taxes.

Meckler: This debate is not about taxes. This is a question of spending. There is no amount of taxes that we could raise that would stop our deficit spending caused by politicians who have lied so often.

SPIEGEL: Your movement often refers to Ronald Reagan, the Republican icon. But he raised taxes 11 times and the debt ceiling 18 times.

Meckler: At no time did he control both houses of Congress, so often he had no choice. But Reagan got attacked viciously by conservatives over this, just as we would attack any Republican president in the future if he did something similar.

SPIEGEL: The US economy is still growing very slowly. If you cut government spending drastically now, you will risk having a double-dip recession.

Meckler: That is simply wrong. Government spending is never efficient.

SPIEGEL: But in the short run, the cuts will lead to even higher US unemployment.

Meckler: Possibly on a minimal level. But we have worried about the short term for so long that we have damaged the long-term prospects of our nation. Look at what is going on in Europe: Spain is a complete disaster. It has more vacant homes than we have here, with only 40 million people. Italy is a complete disaster. Europe is going down the same path as the US, only many countries are far ahead and don’t take corrective action.

SPIEGEL: Speaker Boehner failed several times to rally Republicans around his plans. Does he need to go?

Meckler: We have polled our membership and 74 percent of our members in our 3,500 chapters said it is time to look at new leadership.

SPIEGEL: And should he be replaced by a Tea Party representative?

Meckler: The ultimate goal is to have somebody in the House who is fiscally responsible. We have changed the debate in the United States, which is a pretty radical thing to do in such a short period of time. The question back then was: “How much more will we spend next year, not how much can we cut?” But you will see much more profound change in 2012.

SPIEGEL: Who could be the Tea Party candidate in the next presidential election?

Meckler: The movement has no clear preference. Our members are taking a cool and careful look at all the candidates on the Republican side. I am actually glad people are not more excited and blown away. The last time we saw that on the campaign trail, the country got Barack Obama in the White House — and that led to complete economic disaster.

((Interview conducted by a European Socialist Rag “Der Spiegel”)

EUROPEAN SOCIALISM 

Patriots: These German Socialist doing the interview sound exactly like the Socialist that reside in America, sound like the American Press/Media. Just goes to show you, Socialist dislike Conservative thinking people regardless of what country we reside in.

JUST HOW MUCH OVER THE EDGE ARE AMERICANS TODAY

Americans (most not all) are very crude individuals these days, tattoos,multi colored hair,ear lobes hanging down to the jaw line,dirty, don’t give a rats ass that is America today.  Those who do not fall into that category well most of them move through their day worrying if they are going to make home in time to watch their favorite reality show or smoke a joint or do a little blow–America today, and we wonder how we we into this mess….

  
AMERICANS WHO DO CARE AND ARE INFORMED

All along they say well the media says this and media says that, my congressman says this and my congressman says that and by God I believe what they are all saying..

How are you going to change the mindset of a misinformed,ignorant,brainwashed from birth population, I don’t know how we who are informed can accomplish such a huge task.  America is on it’s way out no doubt about it….

Hope and change 2011: Now homosexual and change

Look how federal government is targeting 4 million students

YOUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS HARD AT WORK CORRUPTING YOUR CHILDREN

The federal government has given a nearly $1.5-million grant to the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, to train teachers on how to support homosexual students and be “advocates for change” in their schools.

GLSEN has announced that it received a 5-year, renewable grant in the amount of $285,000 annually from the Department of Adolescent and School Health at the federal Center for Diseasce Control and Prevention, or CDC. The grant’s scope is to target school districts across the country with a program to increase the number of “safe spaces” for lesbian, “gay,” bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, students.

GLSEN states its goal is to target 20 school districts to train 14,500 school personnel, who in turn impact 4 million students.

“It is abundantly clear that LGBT youths’ experience of bias and violence at school contributes to significant threats to their health, academic success and psychological well-being,” said GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard in a statement. “Truly safe spaces … are vital to these students’ health, success in school and life prospects.”

Critics, however, claim the program’s aim is more about “fast-tracking” students into the homosexual lifestyle.

“Schools can punish bullies without endorsing ‘gay’ behavior,” argues Mission America, an organization that researches and reports on social issues affecting Christians in America. “This is child corruption, funded by taxpayers.”

CORRUPTION OF AMERICAS YOUTH

“We can only hope few schools agree to this scheme for fast-tracking youth into homosexuality and gender confusion,” Linda Harvey, president and founder of Mission America, told WND. “Our federal government, through this grant, essentially agrees with the mythology that some humans are ‘born gay.’ They are therefore willing to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars during a national fiscal crisis to defy parental rights, Christian moral tradition, and sound health practices.

“Once again, this administration is demonstrating its destructive priorities,” Harvey continued. “If this GLSEN program is implemented, impressionable teens will suffer for it. I am calling on Congress to put a halt to this grant.”

According to a GLSEN statement, the CDC grant will fund “Train the Trainer (TOT) programs based on GLSEN’s Safe Space Kit, providing guidance, information and resources to assist in effecting policy enhancements.”

The “Safe Space Kit,” in turn, is described by the group as featuring a 42-page “Guide to Being an Ally to LGBT Students” booklet that “provides concrete strategies for supporting LGBT students, educating about anti-LGBT bias and advocating for changes in your school. The Kit also shows how to assess the school’s climate, policies and practices and outlines ways to advocate for change inside the school.”

“We are proud to contribute to federal efforts to support safe, healthy and respectful learning environments for all students,” Byard said. “This grant is an exciting new element of GLSEN’s long-standing partnership with federal agencies in the common project of improving U.S. schools.”

Α GLSEN representative told WND that the 20 targeted school districts are among the largest districts in the nation identified with the CDC’s DASH program, but did not have a full listing immediately available.

Gary Gatehouse commentary

Patriots: Just one more reason to homeschool your children. The federal Government in concjuction with the largest union in American (National Education Association) is hell bent on shoving homosexuality down the throats of all Americans/Christians and they are using your money to do it!

A budget crisis our economy is going down the toilet and these socialist/corrupt Democrats are still spending still giving away our tax dollars to anyone or any group that will support their (Democrats) socialist/communist agenda no matter how much of our money is spent on corruption.

America and especially those of you that have children in Public School, you grandparents out there don’t you think it is time for we who still believe in our Christian upbringing stand up and be counted. Where are all the clergy on this, where do they stand?

God help America if we continue to close our eyes and let our of control government continue down this path of corruption and debacurey

CONGRESS LIVING HIGH ON DA HOG
Ya’ll wanna do some cuttin ?
 LET’S START HERE
1. Do away with Dept Of Labor
2. Do away with Dept of Commerce
3. Do away with Dept of Education
4. Do away with Dept of Energy
(that’s for starters)
When the cutting ends we should be able to house what is left of the various bureaucratic departments under one roof and a helluva look desks and computers
CONGRESSIONAL PAY AND BENEFITS
Now listen up all you congressmen and women and all you bloated Senators up there in  the District Of Communism

Here’s what we would like to do about ya’ll and your bloated salaries and benefits (just a reminder to all you folks those I just mentioned vote their own raises and benefit packages) Now here is what we are gonna do

1. All elected Congressmen and Senators your salaries-health care-and retirement benefits are going to be based on the General Service Scale (GS) that Federal Civil Service employees fall under

2.Freshmen House of Reps--ya’ll will be starting at a GS 9 pay with Federal Service Benefits

3.Senators-yal’ll will be starting at Gs 11 pay with same Federal Service Benefits as all federal employees get.

4.BOTH the Senate and the House of Representatives will receive promotions based on their performance and those performance ratings will be reviewed by a panel made of up hard working,tax paying American Citizens

5.You in the house and the senate will cut your staff by half, there will be no automatic retirement after one or two terms you will have to serve at least 15 years to get a vested retirement.

Your health care benefits package will be the same as Federal Workers and you will not be able to vote yourself any special treatments or raises.

YOU ARE CIVIL SERVANTS HIRED BY “WE THE PEOPLE” TO REPRESENT  US 
 
You will not receive any special pay or benefits. When traveling it will be by coach seat (air travel) and you will use your own car to travel to and from work or meetings.  You will receive a gas allowance as do Federal Employees.

When you travel aboard (TDY) you will receive the standard travel allotments as do federal employees.

Your retirement will be based on your high three years of service and the earliest you can receive said retirement is after your 60th birthday.

These are all just suggestions and as far as I am concerned they are just as good if not better than what the so called Congressional Leadership has come up with

MOST OF ALL WE NEED TO GET RID OF THIS SONG AND DANCE MAN
