The US Bureau of Labor and Statistics omits this data [I wonder why....LOL], but it is at least partially available in In fact, here’s some states job loss/gain data in the NPPD 9/21/09 news article in part:

“….Forty-two states reported job losses in August, with 14 states reporting unemployment rates of 10 percent or above, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, The heaviest losses came in Texas, which lost 62,200 jobs in August, with the manufacturing, construction, and leisure industries combined reaching 35,500 losses. In Michigan, 42,900 jobs were lost, with 25,000 of them in manufacturing; the state’s unemployment rate rose to 15.2 percent, the highest in the United States. Georgia and Ohio had the third- and fourth-highest losses in August, with 35,000 and 30,100 jobs lost, respectively. Nevada had the second-highest unemployment rate at 13.2 percent, with Rhode Island third at 12.8 percent and California and Oregon tied for fourth with 12.2 percent. Six states had increases in employment in August: North Carolina saw the biggest gains with 7,000, followed by Montana with 5,100 and West Virginia with 2,800. North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska had the lowest unemployment rates in August, at 4.3 percent, 4.9 percent, and 5.0 percent, respectively….”

The rest of the URL:

BTW, I went ahead and used this news article for Dr. Roubini’s bunch and gave my technical estimate for August 2009 job losses in America. States 5-47 were not in the data above, so I estimated an average for the missing states; based on the top 4 states with job losses and the bottom 3 states with job gains.

I came up with 742,000 estimated job losses in America for Aug 2009….makes that 216,000 wild guess [IMO] BLS number that mainstream news is using look like a complete joke, especially since BLS state to state job loss/gain data is conveniently omitted, not allowing an accuracy check.

I hear from Numbersusa sources that Wash St had a 92,000 monthly job loss….Hades, that’s not even in the NPPD data, let alone the omitted BLS wild guess....LOL

BTW, if I was Benanke, I’d be saying the depression is over too; its similar to pressure treatments the meat processing plants use to calm the cattle before they line up and head into “blood stenched” butcher factories, otherwise, we’d never get the cows in the door…LOL

Malthus Theory

Have you ever read George Orwell’s 1984? many of you may be too young, but that used to be required reading to get a high school diploma….its been replaced by our high schools with To Kill a Mockingbird.

Well, assuming you haven’t read it or seen the movie, Orwell predicted in the 30s that by 1984 computers would be watching us, the “newspeak” propaganda would be brainwashing us and man’s freedoms would be taken from him for the public good. I think Orwell was 20-25 years off; we’re living 1984 today. Look at video cameras everywhere, Patriot Act wire tapping into public communications, computers mesmerizing us with brainwashing newspeak [twisted words that make bad things seem good] and freedoms disappearing like the dodo bird, especially as uncontrolled growth mushrooms.

Well, Malthus also made some predictions about how overpopulation would reach an ultimate resource sustainable limit, called “The Malthus Point” about 150 years ago. The basics to Mathus Theory applied: is as Seattle gets more concentrated with population growth the per capita expenditures go down, the wages go down, unemployment and poverty goes way up. Sounds like 2009, doesn’t it; especially considerring both unemployment. [calculated honestly and using 1930 methods] and homelessness has never been so bad in America since the Great Depression.

Today’s economists hate Mathus Theory and so do globalists; as they allege man will continually invent new technology to allow the uncontrolled growth. Yet, when faced with chronic unemployment growth, they have no answer. Sound familiar to 2009 doesn’t it. Hence, the Orwellian newspeak we hear, the recession’s over…LOL

When per capita wages plummet, as they are today with uncontrolled growth in Seattle, there is no way RE prices can go up; unless we can lower interest rates more, which we can’t. We’ve reached that limit too.

Today's Reuter's Article States In Part:

"....Food aid is at a 20-year low despite the number of critically hungry people soaring this year to its highest level ever, the United Nations relief agency said Wednesday.

The number of hungry people will pass 1 billion this year for the first time, the U.N. World Food Program (WFP) said, adding that it is facing a serious budget shortfall...."

Ralph Nader campaigned for National Initiatives in 2008, rather than relying on only lobbyist controlled politicians deciding our budget/futures and I thought his idea was simply wonderful.

The argument against any type of pure democracy is the masses don't understand and can make bad if our present government's overpopulation debt hasn't pushed us over the unemployment cliff. If bad decisions is the excuse not to let "We the People" vote on amnesty; what's their excuse for a horrifying track record of bad republic government led decisions on the economy?

Also, 80% of Americans consider America's economy in poor shape per a recent AP cake Bernanke and your "recession's over" rhetoric yesterday, Americans clearly don't buy it.

The Recession is Over?

As long as 50% of Americans maintain their household income to 1999 levels, inflation adjusted.

The rest of Americans don't matter to the Democrats or Republicans when calling the economy, they can eat cake.

After-all, $250K/yr household income elite [the approx top 5% of American household incomes BTW] is Middle Class [ask Clinton]. The real 50k/yr average household income in America [which has been stagnant since 1999] can eat cake.

This type of news is not found in economics textbooks or political bandwagon hype, it came from blogs; but it makes perfect common sense to me. Article in part:

"...The press release also said:

“More people were working, especially from households living in smaller flat types. The monthly household income of those living in 3-room HDB flats or smaller also grew by over $300 from $1,910 to $2,220. Even after factoring for inflation, this translated to a 3.5% per annum increase in real terms”.

However, this increase in household income may be due to more people working per household rather than an actual increase in household income. What we need to know is the employed per household data – whether it has gone up - and the extent of it resulting in the 3.5% increase...."

The rest of the URL:

As America's phony unemployment count passes over the fact that one person is working two jobs to get by and/or there's three people working per household so they can eat, rather than the old 1.4 average....the conundrum of a flat household income at $50K looks far worse today, than 1999.

LOL....yes the recession is over for the 50% of Americans that still haven't lost their good jobs.....that is, until they get butcher axed too.

During my parents' era there was 1.2 worker per household [now its like 1.4]; and we made our house, almost everything in the house and the car in the driveway too....with far less workers/household than today. My dad and all the other households too, had plenty of vacation time to take us kids to Disneyland in the '63 Polara too. America's population was about 150M-200M back then; about half of today's population. And we need more overpopulation today?

I'd add too, a stay at home parent watching the kids [could be mom or dad] generally makes today's daycares a complete joke, quality-wise too. Ask any family socialogist or psychologist; they'll totally agree with me.

Its in China's, Europe's, Japan's, S. Korea's, etc., best interest that America start making about half their stuff [50% maufactured $ items used in America] again. We've reached the last chapter and page of debt; with phony glue board housing as a subpar manufacturing replacement. We can't buy anything from them, without a domestic wage tax base that isn't based on debt.

If these foreign countries have a brain, they'll totally agree with me.

Also, under the Obama/Bush plans; the American industrial base is just suppose to appear out of nowhere, as alleged bright technicals/businessmen start hiring for new ventures. LOL, the money's tight and there's no way we can compete on WTO rules with livable wages, let alone bringing in foreigners to overpopulate America and more RE price collapse.

Answer: start federal contracts with Buy American provisions for "American Manufacturing" ASAP and its much better federal money spent, than giving it away to the banksters....each theroretical American industrial base job creates 3 more Buy American jobs for material/services and all the federal tax costs for the contract(s) get repaid almost immediately and its slam dunk too :-)

Let the WTO eat cake.

A three headed monster [reducing consumer spending], getting bigger and bigger everyday is an 85% spike in unemployment affecting college degreed professionals earlier this year alone:

States in part:

“…Electrical Engineers Experience Record Job Losses
The unemployment rage for electrical engineers doubled during the second quarter of 2009….”

the rest of the URL:

More degreed unemployment news in part:

“…The total number of unemployed increased by more than 50 percent from January 2008 through last month, but the number of jobless Americans 55 or older jumped 70 percent, according to new Labor Department numbers released Friday.

And for people with college degrees, the number rose even more sharply, by nearly 85 percent.

The numbers confirmed a trend that job cuts are moving up the age and educational ladders, said Andrew Stettner, deputy director of the National Employment Law Project….”

the rest of the URL:

How about nursing? In part:

“….More hospitals have recorded mass layoffs in 2008 than in any year in the past decade. More than 9,700 hospital employees will have filed initial claims for unemployment compensation in 2008 as a result of mass layoffs. That would be highest such number since 2005, which saw nearly 13,300 laid off, and 28% more than the 10-year average. The news comes despite the relative optimism in healthcare as compared to the rest of the economy, where most other major sectors of employment have posted net losses of jobs for the year….”

The rest of the URL:

I’d add most of the layoffs are related to overpopulation and the surge in Uncompensated care, see surge chart in article above. The article above also states in part:

“…Uncompensated care is defined as the overall measure of hospital care provided for which no payment was received from the patient or employer. It is the sum of a hospital’s “bad debt” and the charity care it provides. Uncompensated care excludes other unfunded costs of care, such as underpayment from Medicaid and Medicare…”

How about teachers? See the California news and believe me, its coming to a theater near you too very soon:

“….California law requires local school districts to inform teachers, counselors, nurses and other school employees by March 15 that they could be laid off at the end of the school semester. The across-the-board budget cuts have pushed districts to issue layoff notices to more than 26,000 teachers….”

I’d add

etc, etc….


Obama is like the magician with the amnesty dove in his suit coat: he promises no public option healthcare for illegal aliens and enforcement against illegal alien employers in his magic act....then quickly draws the amnesty dove out to amaze the audience, making the diversion issues against illegal aliens and their employers a moot point.

Family Planning Works About Five Times More Effective than Throwing More Government Money at the Horrifying Green Problem(s)

The article states in part:

"...Every £4 spent on family planning over the next four decades would reduce global CO2 emissions by more than a ton, whereas a minimum of £19 would have to be spent on low-carbon technologies to achieve the same result, the research says..."

Tell that to the CFR members brainlessly intent on more and more uncontrolled overpopulation growth in high per capita energy use America. LOL

Why Don’t We Put the 10s of Millions of Unemployed in America to Work on the American Farms?

We could pay them $50/hr and it wouldn’t matter much for our like Safeway food prices too.

Article in part:

“…Consumers benefit from low farm wages, but less than many people believe: Farm wages constitute a surprisingly small part of the prices consumers pay at the grocery store. Farmgate prices average approximately one-third of retail prices, and labor costs represent approximately one-third of farmgate prices for fruits, vegetables, and horticultural products. This means, for example, that a 10-percent increase in farm wages would increase retail prices by at most 1 percent….”

The rest of the URL

Most of what drives food increases has nothing to do with hiring low wage farm slaves, its packaging, like glass, aluminum and plastics….and the diesel to deliver the food [all driven higher by recent overpopulation driving energy higher and higher in price]….but let’s not forget one key food cost impact, especially the like Safeway profits [LOL]

Even America’s water shortages delta’s worsening, mainly due to uncontrolled overpopulation/immigration since 1990, adds costs and energy use to food….the deeper we dig for water the more energy it costs to pump it out. The Baby Boomers did good with their negative fertility rate since 1990, but only scientists types like me give them environmental kudos for a job well done, not corporate power political lobbyists for slave wages and lower RE prices.

But I’m just a scientist type who talks pragmatic. Go ahead, call me a hater for telling the truth, but you know, science truth has absolutely nothing to do with brainless defamation of character against me or unscientific pig-headed politics, clearly controlled by big corporations seeking slave wages anyway.
