Surprise! Jobless Claims Skyrocket After Election...

The Department of Labor has announced that new jobless claims rose by 78,000 in the first week after the election, reaching a of 439,000, and in the weeks leading up to the election, jobless claims were said to be declining, dipping as low as 339,000. Now suddenly the news seems far less rosy. Hardest hit PA, and OH, good, you wanted him , now you have him. Its to late now, deal with it. Oh and this goes along with the $50.00 decrease in food stamps that you didn't hear about until after the election, Buwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, never seen that coming did Ya, Buwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Obama, Obama, Obama

No votes yet

Nothing that Conservatives (the ones who are awake, at any rate) didn't see coming. I hear of too many layoffs, downsizing, etc. locally and in Michigan and Illinois all the time to have believed the conveniently trimmed numbers being floated prior to the election.

But this was an emotion-based election, not one based on fact, but one based on both fantasy and racial and economic anger, as in: "We'll show you, we're going to have this half-and-half prez [by which I mean he is NOT black, he is equally white and black]... who gives us free stuff and pretends to "wuv" us --- whether you like it or not."

I don't think it was so much about illegal immigration, or even Romney's weak campaign style or anything else. It was a "we'll show you" election. And that's IF the final numbers weren't rigged. I knew too many Dems (even in NW Ohio) who were voting for Romney. I don't necessarily buy the final numbers. They were too convenient - just enough popular so that it wouldn't be questioned and we wouldn't have another year 2000 election, etc.

Whatever the case, what is done is done. So what conservatives who care about the future of the country need to do - particularly because the 2014 election will be upon us before we know it -- is what you are doing - pointing out the truth to counter the mainstream media lap dogs. And pointing out the truth as often and as loudly as possible.

I was actually more sad that Mandel lost. He had (has) some great ideas. Like reducing our "footprint" in Europe. Not bailing out the banks - he was a hard liner on that. He had combat experience. And lost to a chicken hawk who avoided the Vietnam war, and only got in, in 2008 because the voters were angry about the endless wars and therefore voted DeWine out.. Now, Mandel didn't lose by as huge a margin as Brown would like to portray - but Mandel did lose - when his ideas more closely matched what the electorate thinks - particularly pertaining to BAILOUTS. Well, we will surely hear more from Mandel later. He was a great candidate. I watched that contest much more closely than the presidential, as I was afraid that by hook or by CROOK, BO would be re-installed.

But now BO has to act like a man and face up to facts, like the real unemployment situation. Personally, I don't think he can - and his 2nd term promises to be a disaster.
