GOOD NEWS: Unemployment Rate Drops Through the Floor, Reaches Lowest Number Since 1969

Published

on

In news that’s going to further anger folks on the left, President Trump’s economic policies continue to bear fruit, particularly when it comes to lowering the unemployment rate, which, by the way, has now hit the lowest numbers since 1969.

While this is extremely good news, as it means more and more Americans are going back to work and supporting themselves and their families, it’s not at all a positive development for left-wingers who were hoping a poor performance by Trump would aid them in the midterm elections.

The unemployment rate for September dropped two-tenths of a point from August to 3.7 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of unemployed people in the U.S. shrank by 270,000 to 6 million.

This is the lowest unemployment rate since 1969.

The number of part-time workers who would have preferred to have full-time jobs rose by 263,000 to 4.6 million. Average hourly earnings for private, non-farm employees also rose this month by 8 cents, reaching $27.24.

The unemployment rate for September 2017 was 4.2 percent. September’s unemployment rate has decreased or remained the same every year since it hit a high of 9.8 percent in 2009.

The number of unemployed people who have given up looking for jobs because they believe that none are available was the same as it was in September 2017.

However, the number of jobs added was only 134,000, down from 270,000 in August. Before the official jobs report came out, economists had estimated that the number of jobs added for September would reach 185,000. According to the BLS, the average monthly gain in jobs for the past 12 months has been 201,000.

The unemployment numbers for African-Americans also fell some, going from 6.3 percent to 6 percent. Compare that to the rate among African-Americans back in 2010, when Obama was in office, which was a whopping 16.8 percent.

Seems pretty obvious that whatever Trump is doing, it’s working. It’s not all that surprising given the great success he’s had running his own businesses. He knows and understands that kind of things that need to be done in order to amplify the success of the small business owner.

No doubt this is going to help the GOP in the midterms. Keep it up, Mr. President!

Francis Filets Critics, Says Church’s Haters Related to Satan Himself

Until Pope Francis can muster some results, his words should be carefully critiqued.

Pope Francis

Amid all of the depraved and gratuitously horrific sins occurring just under his nose, Pope Francis has been his church’s own worst enemy.

His response to the ritualistic and habitual sexual abuse of children being committed by thousands of Catholic Priests the world over has been categorically unacceptable.  In fact, the pontiff has, on several occasions, lashed out at those who criticize the church’s rampant and ongoing pedophilia problem.

His latest tantrum included some childish name-calling, in which Francis related his critics to the devil himself.

While addressing pilgrims from the Italian diocese of Benevento on Wednesday, Francis said people cannot live their whole lives constantly accusing the church of wrongdoings. He referenced the Bible and rhetorically asked who the office of the “Great Accuser” belongs to.

“I’m sorry, I did not understand … I cannot hear well … the devil!” the Pope said, according to ANSA. “And those who spend their lives accusing, accusing and accusing are — I won’t say children, because the devil doesn’t have any — but they are the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil.”

The Pope added that when things aren’t right, people have to report the defects in order to correct wrongs that were committed. However, he said that when defects are reported, they’re made known and the person loves the church

This isn’t the first time that Francis has chosen to on the offensive rather than address the issue.

For all of the pontiff’s vast pontification on the subject of Catholic Church abuses, there has been very little corresponding action.  Record numbers of church members are coming forward to tell their tales of assault, molestation, and rape while the Pope himself takes to labeling his enemies as denizens of the nether.

Until Pope Francis can muster some results, his words should be carefully critiqued.

PETA Launches Anti-Burger Hollywood Campaign for Attention

PETA is a marketing company who kills thousands of animals per year, so, somehow their advice on where to eat after The Oscars is important.

Published

PETA

While many see People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals, PETA, as a mere pest in our popular culture, there are far more sinister realities that should be discussed.

For instance, the fact that PETA does an absolutely abhorrent job as rescuing cats and dogs – something that Humane Societies have perfected over the course of their existence.

Worse still, the main focus of PETA has been marketing and brand promotion – not the treatment of animals in the least bit.  Their constant, grating stunts do very little to save critters whatsoever, while doing an excellent job of reminding us that PETA still exists…for some reason.

Their latest piggybacking marketing scam has the disgraced organization riding the coattails of The Oscars and one of the nation’s most popular burger joints.

Animal rights group PETA is urging Hollywood to skip the growing tradition of hitting an In-N-Out Burger after the Oscars because the fast food joints sell meat.

It has become the “in” thing to hit the In-N-Out drive through after Hollywood’s big awards shows. Indeed, a recent article in People featured a photo spread of the stars visiting the burger chain, according to Hollywood Reporter.

But PETA is highly annoyed with the burger-eating trend. The animal rights group has sent letters to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to urge them to skip their new In-N-Out habit.

Of course, PETA doesn’t want us all to realize that farmers who grow the food for vegetarians exterminate entire acres of animals in order to put food on the table for the rest of the nation.
