Believe it – Employment Numbers Were Ginned

Look, the numbers don't make sense, but this just an intense poll. There's a very good chance that this is just a statistical outlier and not deliberate. It would take a massive conspiracy to throw this data, or I guess, a knowledgeable hacker, but this is unlikely. In all probability, the next report will show a spike back up to the trending line. Yeah, I admit the timing seems suspect, but the risk and reward equation is badly skewed in the risk direction for the President. If he gets caught, he loses the election. If he's successful, he has a slightly better chance of winning. I don't buy the conspiracy and there has been no evidence but forth to support this. We will know more once wie see later reports.

Data from California went missing, Lick. Factor that in.

When have Obama or his cronies shied from lying? Fast and Furious, murdered ambassadors in Libya, every jobs report that comes out on Thursday and is downgraded by Friday, etc. The lies go on and on. With the MSM covering for you every step of the way, your worries are few. If you get caught, you plead ignorance, and instead of the MSM saying, "Wait, you should have known. Either you're lying or incompetent," they scramble to spin and cover up for you, continuing the lie. Sadly, much of the public laps it up, refusing to do their own research into the truth.

Why is it unlikely that a knowledgeable hacker could gin the numbers? What is unlikely is that the numbers represent a conspiracy. But a hacker? That theory is much more plausible.

Especially if such a hacker was provided info on accessing to the system by an administrator favorable to Obama.

A couple weeks ago, this column analyzed the inflation rate reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and concluded that you should rely on your common sense when the government reports questionable statistics. If they don’t make sense based on what you see, experience, and hear from your friends, then they’re probably wrong. Last week’s unemployment number – which decreased to a still-dismal 7.8% – should not only make no sense to you, but should have never made sense to the BLS and therefore should never have been issued.

So am I just popping off or is there...
