Don't Look Now, Russell Was Right!

I remember during the summer some prophetic words from Russell Gallo on one of our shows - how the Democrats and the President would tout the decrease in unemployment during the holidays and in the new year based on seasonal employment and those no longer actively looking for a job coming of the unemployment rolls.

So when I saw this press release by Rep. Thad McCotter, I immediately thought of him:
The New Year's first unemployment report brings sobering news: 13.1 million of our fellow Americans remain out of work. While we all welcome the news that 200,000 of our fellow citizens have found work and the "official" unemployment rate has dipped one tenth of one percent to 8.5% in December, this rate has persisted at over 8% for 35 straight months. Worse, the misleading practice persists of excluding from the unemployment calculation our fellow Americans who despair of finding a job and are no longer actively seeking for employment. Consequently, when our friends, neighbors and loved ones who are no longer looking for work, along with those only able to find part-time work, are included, America's 'underemployed' rate equates to a staggering 23.7 million Americans (15.2%).
So remember, when watching the news these next few months, go deeper than the headline. It's smoke and mirrors, folks.

The lessons learned: Don't be fooled by the Democratic rhetoric - and always listen to Russell Gallo!
