Gallup Daily: U.S. Employment

Each result is based on a 30-day rolling average; not seasonally adjusted

“…Gallup’s U.S. employment measures report the percentage of U.S. adults in the workforce, ages 18 and older, who are underemployed and unemployed, without seasonal adjustment. “Underemployed” respondents are employed part time, but want to work full time, or they are unemployed. “Unemployed” respondents are those within the underemployed group who are not employed, even for one hour a week, but are available and looking for work. Results for each 30-day rolling average are based on telephone interviews with approximately 30,000 adults. Because results are not seasonally adjusted, they are not directly comparable to numbers reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which are based on workers 16 and older. Margin of error is ± 0.7 percentage points. …”

Gallup poll finds unemployment most important problem facing nation

Linda Young

“… Unemployment is the number one problem on the minds of most Americans, according to a new Gallup Poll.

Some 35 percent of Americans say unemployment is the most important problem facing the country now while 29 percent said the economy was an important problem.

Gallup found that “7 in 10 Americans mention some economic issue when asked to name the most important problem facing the country, and the top two problems Americans cite as the most important ones facing the country directly reflect on the economic situation in the United States.”

Broken down by political party, 41 percent of Democrats, 32 percent of independents and 31 percent of Republicans said that unemployment was the most important problem, while 29 percent of Democrats, 27 percent of independents and 32 percent of Republicans said that the economy in general was the most important problem.

Three other ranking problems were also mentioned by at least 10 percent of respondents.

Some 16 percent of respondents mentioned health care, 12 percent listed dissatisfaction with the government and 11 percent said the federal deficit was an important problem.

Other respondents listed seven different problems as being most important, with 6 percent saying education, 4 percent each mentioning moral/ethical decline, lack of money, war and immigration and 3 percent mentioning foreign aid.

Results came from polling Gallup conducted via telephone interviews with a random sampling of 1,015 adults from Feb. 2 to 5. …”

Microsoft and Nokia Partnership On Smart Phones–Videos

Posted on February 12, 2011. Filed under: Blogroll, Communications, Computers, Law, liberty, Life, Links, media, Mobile Phones, Technology, Video, Wealth, Wisdom | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

“….Look what we’ve found! This is the first image you’ll see anywhere of the early fruit of Microsoft and Nokia’s budding new partnership. We have it on good authority that the technicolor phones on show are conceptual devices produced by the two companies. You shouldn’t, therefore, go jumping to conclusions about retail hardware just yet, but hearts should be warmed by the familiarity of Nokia’s new design — the shape of these handsets is somewhere between its recent N8 and C7 Symbian devices and there is, as usual for Nokia, a choice of sprightly colors. The trio of keys adorning the new concept’s bottom give away its Windows Phone 7 ties, but also remind us that the N8 and E7 are highly unlikely to receive any WP7 upgrade love. The best part about this whole discovery, however, might be that it confirms Steve Ballmer’s assertion that the engineers of both companies have “spent a lot of time on this already.” So, who else is excited about owning an Engadget-blue Microkia device? …”

Nokia commits to Windows Phone and Microsoft

Nokia’s comeback strategy: strategic alliance with Microsoft

by Stuart Dredge

“…The key details: Nokia will adopt Windows Phone as its ‘principal smartphone strategy, innovating on top of the platform in areas such as imaging, where Nokia is a market leader’ according to the announcement.

Symbian isn’t being killed off: instead, it will become ‘a franchise platform’, as Nokia looks to ‘retain and transition’ the existing base of 200 million Symbian users, while selling 150 million more Symbian devices around the world.

And MeeGo? That becomes ‘an open-source, mobile operating system project’ with ‘increased emphasis on longer-term market exploration of next-generation devices, platforms and user experiences’. But Nokia says it still plans to ship a ‘MeeGo-related product’ later this year.”

More competition in the smartphone business space will lead to better quality products at lower prices.

I think the partnership is a great opportunity for both companies.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop rallies troops in brutally honest ‘burning platform’ memo? (update: it’s real!)

Hello there,

There is a pertinent story about a man who was working on an oil platform in the North Sea. He woke up one night from a loud explosion, which suddenly set his entire oil platform on fire. In mere moments, he was surrounded by flames. Through the smoke and heat, he barely made his way out of the chaos to the platform’s edge. When he looked down over the edge, all he could see were the dark, cold, foreboding Atlantic waters.

As the fire approached him, the man had mere seconds to react. He could stand on the platform, and inevitably be consumed by the burning flames. Or, he could plunge 30 meters in to the freezing waters. The man was standing upon a “burning platform,” and he needed to make a choice.

He decided to jump. It was unexpected. In ordinary circumstances, the man would never consider plunging into icy waters. But these were not ordinary times – his platform was on fire. The man survived the fall and the waters. After he was rescued, he noted that a “burning platform” caused a radical change in his behaviour.

We too, are standing on a “burning platform,” and we must decide how we are going to change our behaviour.

Over the past few months, I’ve shared with you what I’ve heard from our shareholders, operators, developers, suppliers and from you. Today, I’m going to share what I’ve learned and what I have come to believe.

I have learned that we are standing on a burning platform.

And, we have more than one explosion – we have multiple points of scorching heat that are fuelling a blazing fire around us.

For example, there is intense heat coming from our competitors, more rapidly than we ever expected. Apple disrupted the market by redefining the smartphone and attracting developers to a closed, but very powerful ecosystem.

In 2008, Apple’s market share in the $300+ price range was 25 percent; by 2010 it escalated to 61 percent. They are enjoying a tremendous growth trajectory with a 78 percent earnings growth year over year in Q4 2010. Apple demonstrated that if designed well, consumers would buy a high-priced phone with a great experience and developers would build applications. They changed the game, and today, Apple owns the high-end range.

And then, there is Android. In about two years, Android created a platform that attracts application developers, service providers and hardware manufacturers. Android came in at the high-end, they are now winning the mid-range, and quickly they are going downstream to phones under €100. Google has become a gravitational force, drawing much of the industry’s innovation to its core.

Let’s not forget about the low-end price range. In 2008, MediaTek supplied complete reference designs for phone chipsets, which enabled manufacturers in the Shenzhen region of China to produce phones at an unbelievable pace. By some accounts, this ecosystem now produces more than one third of the phones sold globally – taking share from us in emerging markets.

While competitors poured flames on our market share, what happened at Nokia? We fell behind, we missed big trends, and we lost time. At that time, we thought we were making the right decisions; but, with the benefit of hindsight, we now find ourselves years behind.

The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don’t have a product that is close to their experience. Android came on the scene just over 2 years ago, and this week they took our leadership position in smartphone volumes. Unbelievable.

We have some brilliant sources of innovation inside Nokia, but we are not bringing it to market fast enough. We thought MeeGo would be a platform for winning high-end smartphones. However, at this rate, by the end of 2011, we might have only one MeeGo product in the market.

At the midrange, we have Symbian. It has proven to be non-competitive in leading markets like North America. Additionally, Symbian is proving to be an increasingly difficult environment in which to develop to meet the continuously expanding consumer requirements, leading to slowness in product development and also creating a disadvantage when we seek to take advantage of new hardware platforms. As a result, if we continue like before, we will get further and further behind, while our competitors advance further and further ahead.

At the lower-end price range, Chinese OEMs are cranking out a device much faster than, as one Nokia employee said only partially in jest, “the time that it takes us to polish a PowerPoint presentation.” They are fast, they are cheap, and they are challenging us.

And the truly perplexing aspect is that we’re not even fighting with the right weapons. We are still too often trying to approach each price range on a device-to-device basis.

The battle of devices has now become a war of ecosystems, where ecosystems include not only the hardware and software of the device, but developers, applications, ecommerce, advertising, search, social applications, location-based services, unified communications and many other things. Our competitors aren’t taking our market share with devices; they are taking our market share with an entire ecosystem. This means we’re going to have to decide how we either build, catalyse or join an ecosystem.

This is one of the decisions we need to make. In the meantime, we’ve lost market share, we’ve lost mind share and we’ve lost time.

On Tuesday, Standard & Poor’s informed that they will put our A long term and A-1 short term ratings on negative credit watch. This is a similar rating action to the one that Moody’s took last week. Basically it means that during the next few weeks they will make an analysis of Nokia, and decide on a possible credit rating downgrade. Why are these credit agencies contemplating these changes? Because they are concerned about our competitiveness.

Consumer preference for Nokia declined worldwide. In the UK, our brand preference has slipped to 20 percent, which is 8 percent lower than last year. That means only 1 out of 5 people in the UK prefer Nokia to other brands. It’s also down in the other markets, which are traditionally our strongholds: Russia, Germany, Indonesia, UAE, and on and on and on.

How did we get to this point? Why did we fall behind when the world around us evolved?

This is what I have been trying to understand. I believe at least some of it has been due to our attitude inside Nokia. We poured gasoline on our own burning platform. I believe we have lacked accountability and leadership to align and direct the company through these disruptive times. We had a series of misses. We haven’t been delivering innovation fast enough. We’re not collaborating internally.

Nokia, our platform is burning.

We are working on a path forward — a path to rebuild our market leadership. When we share the new strategy on February 11, it will be a huge effort to transform our company. But, I believe that together, we can face the challenges ahead of us. Together, we can choose to define our future.

The burning platform, upon which the man found himself, caused the man to shift his behaviour, and take a bold and brave step into an uncertain future. He was able to tell his story. Now, we have a great opportunity to do the same.

Stephen.

“Ron Paul Can’t Be Elected!” Donald Trump CPAC Speech

Speculators taking advantage of low margins and cheap money from the Federal Reserve are the primary cause of the rise in gasoline prices not OPEC and China.

Donald Trump needs and supports the Fed’s low interest rate monetary policy to support his real estate investments.

A Ron Paul/Michele Bachmann can get elected in 2012 and that is why both the  Democratic and Republican progressive establishment are attacking the tea party movement and its supporters.

Ron Paul wants to end the Fed and the IRS, balance the budget, repeal Obama care,  cut Federal spending, reduce the national debt,a strong national defense, a non-interventionist foreign policy, bring the troops home and replace the Federal income tax with the FairTax.

The progressive Democratic and Republican establishment want the continuation of the warfare and welfare economy and a interventionist government.

Ron Paul wants a peace and prosperity economy with a limited in size and scope constitutional republic.

Sounds like a landslide victory agenda for me.

Donald Trump reminds me of Ross Perot, he is a spoiler.

Ignore Trump.

Join the campaign for liberty and the 2012 Revolution of the tea party movement.

Blame High Gas Prices on Laziness and Greed

Just as the U.S. economy seems about to recover, oil speculators are again ratcheting up gas prices. Don’t let them get away with it, says Ed Wallace

“…Fact is, we have more oil on hand today (13 million barrels) and just three million barrels of gasoline less than we did at the end of January 1999, a period when gasoline prices were down near the $1 mark. As for strong economic growth dictating higher oil and gas prices, it should be noted that our GDP grew 5.4 percent in late 1998—and growth would improve to 7.1 percent at the start of 1999. Yet gasoline was a buck a gallon.

It’s not just U.S. oil inventories that are considered at the high end of the five-year average. Mohammed bin Dha’en al-Hamili, energy minister for the United Arab Emirates, told the Gulf News on Dec. 25 that “global oil inventories are really high, and the current crude oil prices do not reflect market fundamentals.”

A few days before my appearance with Gambling, an Associated Press story discussed how U.S. gasoline demand has fallen for four straight years. It’s down 8 percent from our peak use in 2006, and the story further reported that government officials and the head of Exxon Mobil (XOM) believe that gasoline use in America has peaked for good this time, never to return to 2006 consumption levels.

The very next day CNN Money published a report from the Oil Price Information Service, which concluded, “Based on the current high price of crude oil and historical trends, gasoline prices in the $3.75 range could be a reality by spring.”

Yes, it’s 2008 redux: Energy prices are rising in the face of four-year weakened U.S. demand and high inventories worldwide.

At this rate, it won’t take long until skyrocketing oil and gasoline prices drag the current economic recovery to a halt. Worse, if oil and gasoline prices go up for consumers and business in 2011 by a substantial amount, reducing the unemployment numbers may not be possible. …”

“…At the moment, however, oil’s high premiums are more likely the result of far too much liquidity in the financial system, available at too little interest. Capital always looks for maximum yield, and paper profits on commodities seem again to be the year’s winning ticket.

But be warned: When the day comes that everyone holding an oil contract demands actual delivery of the physical crude on the contract’s due date, we’ll know we’re about to have a real energy crisis. And the day of that legitimate reckoning is coming—just not today or tomorrow.

The fact is that modern societies run on energy, and lots of it. Moreover, the lower the cost of that energy, the better the odds that the world’s economies will be doing extremely well. Yet Americans continue to have a major problem with our government’s position on liquid energy—it’s just one more issue with which Washington is incapable of dealing. Validating that statement is the fact that in the middle of December, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission delayed until 2011 the vote on installing position limits on speculators involved in commodities.

According to Reuters, some of the commissioners felt that moving too fast could damage the commodities market. Really? Here in the real world, everyone paying $3 a gallon for gasoline has been hoping someone would damage the oil futures market. …”

“Go After Speculators’ Leverage

Peter Drucker, easily the most brilliant predictor of future trends, made his predictions simply by looking at today’s reality and moving the trend line into the future to see how it would alter our society. If oil production continues to be constrained against demand, that allows the speculators and volatility to control the market. After all, speculators who never intend to take delivery of one drop of oil continue to plow more cheap capital into those contracts, thereby distorting the real discovery price.

After five years of this costly behavior, it has become clear that they’re not going to change if they don’t have to. The government could fix this problem quickly by severely reducing the amount of leverage or borrowing permitted to purchase commodity contracts and by raising interest rates. But neither move seems likely.

“Mark came to Microsoft in 2006 to help advance the state of the art of Windows, now in his latest compelling
creation he is raising awareness of the all-too-real threat of cyber-terrorism.”

~Bill Gates

“While what Mark wrote is fiction, the risks that he writes about eerily mirror many situations that we see
today.”

~Howard A. Schmidt, White House Cyber Security Coordinator


 

 

Synopsis

“… An insidious cyber-terrorist attack threatens to destroy the Western World in this debut by a leading expert on cybersecurity Over the Atlantic, an airliner’s controls suddenly stop reacting. In Japan, an oil tanker runs aground when its navigational system fails. And in the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl. 

At first, these computer failures seem unrelated. But Jeff Aiken, a former government analyst who saw the mistakes made before 9/11, fears that there may be a more serious attack coming. And he soon realizes that there isn’t much time if he hopes to stop an international disaster. …”

Zero Day presents a chilling “what if” scenario written in the vein of Richard A. Clarke and Daniel Suarez.

“…Have you ever experienced a virus, Trojan horse, spam, worm, etc. on your computer? It seems overwhelming when it happens, but imagine if it began to happen to computers around the country all at once. Imagine that, unlike your problem, this national problem doesn’t seem to be fixable at all. The bottom line is financial loss at a devastating level but also other consequences never before contemplated. …”

Ezekiel 39 – The Gog Magog War

King (Gog) and country (Magog, ruled by Gog) mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39. Gog, it was believed, would lead an alliance of the forces of evil in an invasion of Israel after the latter’s restoration to its land. The subsequent defeat of Gog and the survival of Israel would lead to the recognition by all peoples that Israel’s previous suffering was the result not of God’s having abandoned Israel but of His punishing Israel for its transgressions. The terminology of these chapters of Ezekiel, as well as the supernatural, disastrous punishment to be visited on the invaders, mark this prophecy as apocalyptic. Further, the prolixity of these two chapters as well as their inconsistency in detail is highly characteristic of apocalyptic writings.Opinion is divided as to what historical figure or episode, if any, Ezekiel had in mind when he wrote these chapters. In any case, the catastrophic events described in the prophet’s vision would serve as the prelude for the acknowledgment by the nations of the world that only the God of Israel is the true God.

These two chapters are echoed in Apocalyptic literature (Book of Enoch), in the Dead Sea Scrolls, in the New Testament (Revelation), and in Talmud and Midrash, which view the wars of Gog and Magog (in post-Ezekiel literature, the latter is also conceived as a person) as a sign of the imminent coming of the Messiah. Consequently, in the course of Jewish history, great armed conflicts between the nations stirred such messianic expectations, as did the struggle between Christendom and Islam..

Imran Nazar Hosein

“…Imran Nazar Hosein is a leading International Islamic Philosopher, Scholar and author, specialising in world politics, economy, eschatology , modern socio-economic/political issues and expert on international affairs. He is best-selling author of Jerusalem in the Qur’an.

Imran Nazar Hosein was born on the Caribbean island of Trinidad in 1942 to parents whose ancestors had migrated from India as indentured labourers. He studied Islam, Philosophy and International Relations at several universities and institutions of higher learning. Among them are al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, the Institute of International Relations of the University of the West Indies in Trinidad, the University of Karachi in Pakistan, the Aleemiyah Institute of Islamic Studies in Karachi, Pakistan, and the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland.

He worked for several years as a Foreign Service Officer in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago.

He lived in New York for ten years during which time he served as the Director of Islamic Studies for the Joint Committee of Muslim Organizations of Greater New York. He lectured on Islam in several American and Canadian universities, colleges, churches, synagogues, prisons, community halls, etc. He also participated in many inter-faith dialogues with Christian and Jewish scholars while representing Islam in USA. He was the Imam, for sometime, at Masjid Dar al-Qur’an in Long Island, New York. He also led the weekly Jumu’ah prayers and delivered the sermon at the headquarters of the United Nations Organization in Manhattan, New York, once a month for ten years continuously.

He is a former Principal of the Aleemiyah Institute of Islamic Studies in Karachi, Pakistan, Director of Research of the World Muslim Congress in Karachi, Pakistan, Director of the Islamic Institute for Education and Research in Miami, Florida, and Director of D’awah for Tanzeem-e-Islami of North America.

He has traveled continuously and extensively around the world on Islamic lecture-tours since graduating from the Aleemiyah Institute of Islamic Studies at age 29. And he has also written more than a dozen books on Islam that have invariably been received with public respect. Indeed, Jerusalem in the Qur’an – An Islamic View of the Destiny of Jerusalem has become a best seller and has been translated and published in several languages.

Prof. Dr. Malik Badri, Dean of the International Institute for Islamic Thought and Civilization in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, wrote the Foreword to the book.

Imran’s first book, entitled Islam and Buddhism in the Modern World was written when he was just 29 and still remains the only book on the subject by a Muslim scholar. That book won high praise from such eminent scholars as Vice Chancellor of University of Karachi and renowned historian, Dr. Ishtiaq Husain Quraishi, eminent Pakistani jurist and philosopher, A. K. Brohi, and eminent Muslim sociologist, Dr. Basharat Ali.

Maulana Dr. Fazlur Rahman Ansari, an outstanding scholar of Islam of the modern age, wrote the Foreword to that book.

Imran Hosein’s three new books, published in 2007, on ‘Surah al-Kahf’ of the Qur’an and on the subject of ‘Signs of the Last Day in the Modern Age’, offer rare insights into interpretation of the Qur’an and the Hadith of Muhammad insofar as they explain the modern age. …”

“The Nazis have an ally in every town or village where there is a man eager to get rid of a Jewish competitor. The secret weapon of Hitler is the anti-Jewish inclinations of many millions of shopkeepers and grocers, of doctors and lawyers, professors and writers.”

“Capitalism means free enterprise, sovereignty of the consumers in economic matters, and sovereignty of the voters in political matters. Socialism means full government control of every sphere of the individuals life and the unrestricted supremacy of the government in its capacity as central board of production management.”

Peter Schiff Video Blog – February 4, 2011

 

In October 2008 the United States Civilian Labor Force Level peaked at an estimated 154,953,000 or about 155 million.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics defines the labor force as all civilians classified as employed and unemployed.

 The employed are those who work for pay for themselves or someone else or who work 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in a family-operated business.

 Also included among the employed are those who were temporarily absent from work for reasons such as illness and child-care problems.

 The unemployed include individuals who had no job but were available for work and looking for employment.

The civilian labor force grows approximately 100,000 to 150,000 each month from population growth as new entrants into the labor market either graduate or drop-out from high school and college and seek employment or their first job in the labor market.

Had the economy not gone into a recession in 2008 and 2009, the United States Labor Force Level would have grown approximately 2,700,000 to 3,700,000 over the 27 month period ending January 31, 2011.

In other words the civilian labor force level should be between 157,700,000 and 158,700,000 due to population growth alone by the end of 2010.

Yet in January 2011 the total estimated civilian labor force level was only 153,186,000 well below the peak level of October 2008 and the expected normal population growth levels.

The United States economy is simply not creating enough jobs each month to keep up with population growth as new entrants enter the labor market to seek employment.

1 : Data affected by changes in population controls.  

In order to reduce the official unemployment rate by .1% each month requires the creation of between 250,000 and 300,000 jobs per month.

The 300,000 jobs per month number includes new entrants into the labor force of about 150,000 plus another 150,000 or .1% of the civilian labor force.

Thus to reduce the official unemployment rate or U-3 by 1% per year requires the creation of approximately 3,600,000 jobs per year.

The 250,000 jobs per month number includes new entrants into the labor force of about 100,000 plus another 150,000 or .1% of the civilian labor force.

Thus to reduce the official unemployment rate or U-3 by 1% per year requires at the bare minimum the creation of approximately 3,000,000 jobs per year.

The United States economy has been creating less than half this number of new jobs.

The situation is actually much worse.

The civilian labor force participation rate represents the proportion of the working-age population either working or actively looking for work and is the relative size of labor resources available for the production of the United States economy goods and service.

The civilian labor force participation rate rose fairly steadily for more than six decades hitting a peak of 67.2% in March  2001.

The civilian labor force participation rate is normally between 66% and 67%.

Over 6.6 million americans are so discouraged by the current unemployment situation that they have left the labor market.

BLS U-3 Unemployment Rate Explained

 

The U.S. employment level hit a peak in November 2007 at 146,504,000.

When President Bush left office in January 2009 the U.S. employment level had declined by over 3.3 million jobs to a level of 142,202,000.

Under President Obama the U.S employment level has declined even further by over 2.9 million jobs to a level of 139,323,00 in January 2011.

The U.S economy has lost over 7. 2 million jobs from November 2007 through January 2011.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics also reported upwardly revised numbers of 121,000 new non-farm jobs created in December 2010 and 93,000 new non-farm jobs  created in November 2010.

While the number of new non-farm jobs was barely enough to keep up with population growth and new entrants into the labor market, it simply was no where near the range of 250,000 to 300,000 new jobs per month necessary to decreased the unemployment rate by .1%.

Yet according the the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate dropped from 9.8% in November 2010 to 9% in January, 2011 or a total of .8% in just two month.

This would have required the creation of over 1,750,000 to 2,100,000 in just two months.

This did not happen and nobody believes it did including the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Economic growth rates for the economy would have to be over 8%  to create from 875,000 to over 1,000,000 jobs per month. The current rate of economic growth for gross domestic product is 3.25%. 

The only way to get a drop of this magnitude in the unemployment rate is for more than 2 million people to have been so discouraged as to have left the labor force by not looking for work.

In other words the civilian labor force participation rate would have to decline dramatically, which it has if you believe the Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers.

But did it?

I for one do not buys this.

It is becoming increasing apparent that the President and the White House through the Secretary of Labor have brought political pressure to bear on the Bureau of Labor statistics to manipulate the employment statistics to show that the official unemployment rate is falling and will soon be under 9%.

With the exception of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s who was re-elected as President with un-employment rates over 14%, no President since then has been re-elected with rates of un-employment exceeding 9% for over 21 months.

President Obama desperately needs the unemployment rate to fall below 9% and even 8% if he is to have any chance of being re-elected President of the United States. 

This can be accomplished by making a political adjustment to the civilian labor participation rate by gradually lowering over several months the actually observed monthly rate.

When you are unemployed and need money to put food on the table and a roof over your head, you do not stop seeking employment no matter how discouraged you are.

Congress should investigate these unbelievable unemployment rate numbers by having the Secretary of Labor and head of the Bureau of Labor Statistics questioned by the appropriate Congressional House Committees.

Also, the time has come for a whistleblower to come forward and tell what is going on at the Department of Labor.

The official level of unemployment measured by U-3 dropped from 15,041,000 in November 2010 to 13,863,00 in January 2011 or a decline of over 1.2 million.

The only way for this to happen is to reclassify those who would normally be considered unemployed to discourage workers no longer considered in the civilian labor force resulting in lower labor participation rates.

Well if you believe those numbers then I suggest you look at what Gallup estimates the unemployment rate to be:

“…Unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 9.8% at the end of January — up from 9.6% at the end of December, but down from 10.9% a year ago.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/145922/gallup-finds-unemployment-slightly-january.aspx

When you look at the Gallups’s  underemployment rate and compare it with BLS  U-6 total unemployment rate you see that Gallup is much higher and increasing compared to the rapidly falling U-6 rate in January 2011.

“… Underemployment Essentially Unchanged in January

Underemployment — the combination of part-time workers wanting full-time work and Gallup’s U.S. unemployment rate — was 18.9% in January, essentially the same as the 19.0% of December. Underemployment now stands one percentage point below the 19.9% of a year ago. …”

Yes, I know the Gallup numbers are not seasonally adjusted nor to my knowledge are they politically adjusted.

The Associated Press actually reported that the decline in the unemployment rates was the fastest in more than half a century.

Really.

At this rate by May the unemployment rate will be under 8.0% and the pace in the drop in unemployment rate will be the fastest in a century–truly unbelieveable.

Some economists blame it on snow, others consider it to be a snow job!

The American people people are being lied to once again by the Obama Administration.

This is par for the course where you  find Barack Obama playing the game. 

The hardest hit by unemployment are 16-19 yearolds, blacks and hispanics with unemployment rates of 25.7%, 15.7%  and 11.9% in January 2011 respectively.
