The Vanishing

Not since the disappearance of the Anasazi Indians has history presented us with such a perplexing mystery. Vast numbers of American workers are simply vanishing:

The number of Americans not in the labor force grew by 169,000 in January, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ latest jobs report.

BLS labels people who are unemployed and no longer looking for work as “not in the labor force,” including people who have retired on schedule, taken early retirement, or simply given up looking for work. There were 89 million of them last month.

There has been a decline in the workforce by a staggering 8.5 million since Obama was elected, even as the population continues to rise, driven by Third World welfare colonization. By now most everyone understands the effect of tax & spend liberal policies on employment, but since many aren’t near old enough to retire, where do all the workers go?

Here’s a clue for investigators: disability.

    CAUTION! Low Information Voter Zone:

    Your country has 100 people. 100 people are working. Full employment.

    10 get laid off, but since they’re not working they don’t count. Result? Since every one of the 90 are still working and the 10 don’t count, SHAZAAM! You still have full employment.

    Couple that with lowered expectations (7.8 unemployment is now touted as great news) and Obama wins again.

    Nothing to see here folks, move along.

  • Son of Taz

    Skyfall, is that more of that new math I hear about? Or is it fuzzy math?

  • Jodie

    It looks like Obama uses the math invented by the Arabs.

  • Jimbo

    Off topic, but amusing: Have you seen the propaganda photo of the new top secret Iranian stealth fighter jet? I’s up on FOXnews – check out the cockpit glass. It’s scratched and cloudy, impossible to see out of. And these murderous clowns expect to be taken seriously?

  • gemalo

    FEMA camp anyone, anyone, …….. Bueller, anyone?

  • Skyfall

    Taz, not sure if it’s “new” or “fuzzy”, but strangely, if you take whatever employment numbers the administration puts out and divide them by 666, they spell “Obama”.

    Just sayin’…

  • Skyfall

    …and Jodie may have something there. Take the current jobs numbers, multiply by the number of Arabian suicide bombers, add in 12 Imams, bow repeatedly to King Saud and you get the exact number of times Obama met with his jobs council before disbanding them, then have the irresistible urge to yell out “We are not a Christian nation”, “Allah’u Akbar” and “What difference does it make?”.

    Arab math indeed…

    Ha ha! I laughed out loud on that one.

    Sweep the leg,

    That is funny. Someone on the Caption Contest thread just pointed out that you shoot skeet in the air. LOL!

  • Bill T

    Sweep the leg
    Put a straight edge over the photo, from the bead to the receiver and his head it appears as though it’s a staged photo. He couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with that sight picture!

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    Anasazi, that’s funny. But Obama voters wouldn’t get it.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    Another indicator targeted by Socialists for extinction is GDP.
    GDP as it stands is a measurement of economic productivity (with some Keynesian government spending sprinkled in to goose those numbers)
    But the left wants to replace GDP with a happiness indicator (this happiness defined by them, of course)

    Things like O care, section 8 housing, education for it’s own sake (minus any reason to have it) level of totalitarian governance, leisure time (from being free of that pesky job) direct wealth redistribution
    And just to cover those pesky unemployment numbers……work-life balance
    But you know what they say
    Socialism loves company

    About 0′Bama’s shooting picture, something ain’t right.

    The president wears his watch on his left wrist like a right-handed man, yet he’s shooting left handed. And he’s sighting through sunglasses.

    All experienced shooters, please respond.

  • Bill T

    Maybe he should have watched this video before he went out to pose for his photo op. barrys skeet shooting probably isn’t even up to his bowling abilities, other than photo ops! Maybe he should stick to super soakers and fruity drinks w/umbrellas in them.

    I think it’s actually a photo of him Shotgunning a little choom.

  • Dr. 9

    The only photo i remember of him is on that girls bike with his very effeminate little helmet.

    The photo with the shotgun is just another way of showing how very little respect he has for the intelligence of the American people. And, based on the results of the last election, i don’t blame him a bit.

  • A. Levy

    Isn’t it amazing what a staff of accountants can do? Just by jiggling some numbers, they can make Millions of people disappear! And you though David Copperfield was good?

    Also, i have yet to hear anyone dare ask,
    so how did millions of people all become disabled at about the same time?
    Or, “how have the requirements for getting disability changed in the last four years?
    Or, “what is the percentage of blacks applying, and approved, for disability benefits now, as opposed to say, four years ago?

    And the final question, “do the brain-dead American sheeple even care?

  • Mr Evilwrench

    Well, I wear my watch on the left and fire left handed, and sunglasses don’t confront me as long as I have my correctional lenses. Without those I could probably hit the side of a barn from the inside, but the skeets will escape to frolic in happy skeetland. Can’t say about the rest of it.
