    Ron Paul on the disingenuous job report

    Ron Paul says unemployment numbers don't tell the whole truth

    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said the latest unemployment numbers don't tell the whole story. In an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan Friday night, Paul also said the .2 percentage drop in unemployment is "not all that glamorous."

    Paul said there is an under-reported element to the latest jobs numbers released Friday that showed the lowest unemployment rate in three years - and that is that millions more are disengaged from the job market.

    "More important if you admit the truth," Paul said about the latest unemployment numbers. "We quit counting people."

    The number of unemployed people declined to 12.8 million people in January, according to the Labor Department, but that number only includes people actively looking for work.

    Nearly as many people are experiencing the dire consequences of the sluggish economy and that statistic has not seen much improvement. Eleven million people either gave up looking for work or are underemployed, and that's why Paul calls the jobs numbers "not glamorous."

    Paul points to the 1.1 million people who have completely stopped looking for a job because they think no jobs are available (and those are the ones who have been employed at some point previously). The Labor Department calls those people "discouraged" and that number is unchanged from a year ago.

    Another 1.7 million people haven't looked for work in the past four weeks and 8.2 million people are underemployed, meaning they are working part time or reduced hours.

    There is very little in Washington that isn't a LIE. He could have a field day with that accusation.

    They are talking about it now On Alex Witt MSNBC ( Doug Wead is soon to come on) Someone said yesterday they overheard grinch asking an advisor how to handle this GOOD NEWS for Obama, because he didn't want to praise Obama.

    I am glad Paul is taking the position of calling it out for being a false manipulation of the truth.

    They are saying, Nevada has the worst Unemployment rate and had the worst housing bubble.

    It is a huge issue there.

    Now they are showing a Nevada poll with only Romney and Newts numbers.

    I don't know if hearing Wead talk is worth keeping on this station.
    Supporting Ron Paul since 2007-was an active member at the old RP forums in '07-'08, went by my name Cindy. Good times, good times getting involved with such awesome people for a critical cause. I will always love RP supporters for the kindred spirits they are to me. Bless all of you!!!!

    Official unemployment numbers like most government figures are heavily manipulated by the government. For a fun read, I suggest the website:

    http://www.shadowstats.com/article/employment

    Very interesting website that talks about how government has manipulated these stats the media so loves and they try to come up with alternative and more accurate graphs.

    They cover lots of other subjects besides unemployment as well:
