Every year Americas politicians and economist seems to use an ever growing clever bag of political tricks to make the American people believe everything is rosy in our economy. And the best tool in their bag of tricks is the Unemployment Index (UI).
Many, if not most Americans are not even aware that there are really six different UI indexes to choose from when talking about the latest unemployment figures. With even few people being aware that nearly every media outlet, major economist and politician regularly intentionally chose the one index (U3) that represents the lowest level of unemployment.
In all actuality the honest rate of unemployment is usually much higher than all of these indexes as they have even conveniently made changes to the most accurate index that represents true unemployment (E6).
Yes… They All Know They Are Lying
It really makes one question the integrity of any institution that would provide so many different ways to interpret such valuable information and not really tell anyone about how the whole system even works. The mere fact that everyone who really knows anything about the economy would chose to ignore the real, more accurate figures should be criminal. But its not?!?!
Never mind the fact that all of these people are complicit and know that they are really never giving the American people a truly accurate assessment of how the job market really is doing. The harsh reality is, this would quite simply be called “Lying” and “Committing Fraud” if any private citizen tried to use this same methodology to try and convince people that their business was doing great. When in fact the truth is quit the opposite.
Yet, for those in charge of the largest organization in the world that is responsible for the lives of hundred of million, if not billions of people… it’s just find?
Seriously…What the hell is going on? And, the scary part is, this is just the beginning of how many of our current leaders use tactics very much like these to deceive the masses. If we knew how often they used just a few “truths” to cover up gigantic lies many politicians and once revered intellects would be swinging from the tree’s.
Yet, every year most politicians use these figures and tactics as weapons and they all play by the same rules of “never disclosing to the public the method behind how they really created these figures” as long as they can twist them to support a position that favors them. Who the hell cares if it leads millions of people to fall into harms way… I don’t know about you but that kinds of sounds like a crime doesn’t it?
How These Unemployment Indexes Kinda Work
So to give you a snapshot that will allow you to see how these numbers work I’d like to direct you to this website that pretty much sums up the how these 6 indexes are determined and which one you need to look at too more easily understand them, go to: Unemploymentdata.com. This webpage was the best explanation I could find that summarizes how these number are used to manipulate reality and do a much better job of explaining the system than I can.
The scary part about all of this data is that everyone seems cool with the outright intentional deception. From the media parroting the misleading figures to the government creating the system the produces them all the way down to the many well-known, respected institutions and economist. It’s like everyone in charge of creating the laws and systems to keep the American people are cool with lying I guess, well, that is until you lie to them of course. Even recently with every media outlet screaming, “look at the unemployment rate shrink” when a little over 6 months ago these same people were calling for blood because a bunch of politician let the unemployment benefits expire for millions of people which was the main reason this number dropped so much. The reality is, the number dropped not because millions of people found jobs, it dropper because millions of people were either forced or dropped off the unemployment rolls and simply gave up looking for work. Both of which actions were the only real cause for the unemployment number to go down.
The scariest part about all of this is, even the U6 (The most accurate unemployment index anyone has ) seems to be factually inaccurate. You see the biggest problem is that many leaders keep readjusting the systems and the very programs they use to tell us whats going on so they can paint a better picture.
All it take is for the to pass a law or adjust a policy to make a couple of quick changes to the formula, remove or add a number or program and presto! You have completely different fact available for you to use. Pretty much allowing you to tell a lie while by using newly minted facts to support your position. It’s actually pretty clever if you think about it. After all, it makes it look like those in charge are actually doing a great job, and in fact, they are. Well, that’s if you consider doing a great job of creating a new formula to make it look like you are doing your job when you’re not.
To give you an idea of how they did this with the UI just check out Shadow Government Statistics to see how they even changed the U6 index back in 1994 to help get that unemployment rate number ever lower than the true rate of unemployment… what a bunch of assholes!
The sad part is, this type of methodology and deception is applied pretty much everywhere across the various agencies that are usually failing in government. They overspend and waste money, let’s create new regulation, taxes and fee’s to find more money which is insane considering that if they just kept better track of the money they had and made better buying decision. They’d have more than enough money to do their job with plenty left after they were done.
It seems as if the only thing they’ve become successful at is creating a false impression of success when their failures are a clear as day. All you have to do is look it up yourself and stop relying on people who have everything to lose if you know the truth. Because the reality is the great unemployment deception has most people believing that less than 7% of Americans are out of a job when the rate of unemployment is just under 25% according to April 2014 actual figures.
So wake the hell up people!
It’s not a hard stretch to believe that if a certain group of people are willing to lie right to face while knowing that they are intentionally manipulating the numbers to lie to you. They are pretty willing to do just about anything to make you believe other lies as well.
Yup, were pretty much screwed!
Well, we are if we keep electing those people who have proven to support lies like these all along…. And that is pretty much all of them so think about that when you go to cast your ballot and you see the same person whose been sitting in one of those U.S. Office for all those years.
Let that stew boil your brain a bit as we’ll discuss possible solutions to this problem and others in the Political Evolution section of this blog site.
