Here’s the perfect explanation why Jonathan Gruber called American voters stupid. It’s because, for a majority, the “news” they hear is directed for purpose. The major networks generally follow a very liberal theme and refuse to present anything they find contrary to that agenda.  Sharyl Attkisson lost her job at CBS for her truth in journalism efforts.

It is true that far too many people are aware of what is happening that commands and directs their lives. However, that might be because they are tired of the influenced or non-presentation of news. Benghazi, Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal got little play in the main stream media due to the dim light cast on Democrats. Almost nothing is heard about Harry Reid letting bills promoting employment or securing the border before issuing green cards languish into antiquity because they are presented by Republicans.

Jonathan Gruber is not the only liberal who occasionally speaks the truth when being filmed.

Talking with a neighbor the other day about Obama’s version of immigration reform (“this is what I want so this is what you get America), I brought up my concern for unemployment in the country. I said that I believed citizens and legal residents would be further harmed by introducing more people into the mix. I stated that the true unemployment figure was already about 37% and not what the administration publishes for the lapdog media to broadcast.

The look on his face was not unexpected. It was disbelief to the Nth degree, as it might be with most people. When he questioned where I got such the number, I told him it is from the BLS. I explained that it is the accurate number when you take into account all the people who have given up looking for work. Many people now find waiting for the government to send a check or make a direct deposit easier and almost as profitable as working. You know, the truth, the kind of information you just don’t get from broadcast news, NPR or PBS.

I can’t see how the president’s recent move will rapidly build the economy and move some of the 37.2% potential workers back to employment. For the skeptics and cool aid drinkers that accept the hogwash put out by the government, please check the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ own charts. Sometimes you just have to look beyond the cloud.

The math is so simple even Gruber’s stupid voters can do it. Subtract the labor participation rate shown (62.8%) from the total number of potential workers (100%) and you arrive at a true unemployment figure of 37.2%. Feel free to use your fingers, if you must. That number is somewhat different from the 5.8% that everyone hears.

Still feeling good about the 5.8% rate after seeing the BLS chart? We have over a third of the country that is sitting idle or participating in robberies, beatings, shootings, uprisings, riots or protests for something to keep them busy. People get angry when they have too much free time and too little money.

How can another few million people possibly do any harm?

I.C.E. is readying for another surge of perhaps 100,000 foreigners invading our country because of the president’s welcoming ceremony last night.

A thinking person may wonder how they are preparing for this influx. Well, according to the Washington Examiner and others, I.C.E. is preparing a 2,400 bed facility in Dilley, Texas. How many expectant mothers will be housed until they can drop an anchor? Pediatricians will be on staff. The President made no mention about stopping the invaders at the point of entry and keeping them from entering. Instead, the preparation is for once they are already on our soil. Once they are here, we house, feed and doctor them until a background check can be run.

Even then, there is no guarantee that Jose Manuel Rodriguez from Guatemala is in fact Jose. Homeland Insecurity just has to rely that he is telling them the truth. He could actually be Hussein Jahdami Mohammad from Syria. With no I.D., a background check will be run on Jose. No matter who he is, he broke the law (perhaps many laws) to get to this point, now we are expected to accept as truth that he is who he says he is. I think I need Johathan Gruber to explain to me how this is a good thing. I can’t wait until Sunday to see hear the Susan Rice spin.

Perhaps this is the president’s way of employing women. The talk of adding more Border Patrol and I.C.E. agents might mean more women to change diapers and hold classes in prenatal hygiene. Since most of the invaders will speak little, if any English, perhaps other previously accepted illegal entrants and linguistic experts might be hired by the federal government as Spanish, Chinese, Persian, Pashto, Kurdish, Balochi, Russian, French translators. Again, there was no mention of refusing entry or returning illegal entrants immediately to the point of entry, but preparations are being made to house, feed, educate and otherwise take care of them.

We are no longer a proud, sovereign nation. Our borders mean naught. But, I feel safer and better about my country every day that Obama is president…NOT!

One of the talking points for the president’s speech last night was to, “prioritize deporting felons not families”. Obama went on to say, “We need to focus on deporting felons, not families; criminals, not children”. There was no mention of keeping felons out of the country. There was no mention of turning potential criminals or anybody away at the border.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reported that last year Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released from custody 36,007 illegal immigrants, convicted of crimes. The list includes 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 9,187 dangerous drug convictions, 16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions and more. Just released! Poof! Gone from sight and blending in to Hillary’s village.

So now, does ICE now start looking for those they previously had in custody, or are they safe since Obama has declared party time for law breakers?  This isn’t reform, this is presidential absolution.

For quite a while now there has been talk about introducing another Fairness Doctrine to broadcast media. The talk comes primarily from the left. The tolerant, compassionate people hate it when someone voices a fact laden viewpoint that counters their ecstasy based emotional rantings.

Essentially, the concept of fairness would be dictated by the ideals of the FCC Chairman. Political Correctness would mandate the silence of any viewpoint opposing the party in power. It would be impossible to refer to an individual or entity by race, color, creed, financial status, gender, ethnicity, or how many eyes or doorknobs might be involved. It would be another 1984 style, freedom oppressing, central government takeover.

Allowing the government oversight and control of the Internet would not only suppress the American people, it would restrict the information, opinion and analysis allowed to come into or what might be outbound from the United States. We would be even more at the mercy of the government regarding information flow than we are now. A Jonathan Gruber or Susan Rice type would surely become Information Editor-in-Chief at the FCC.

Of course, there would be a fee, rate increase, toll, excise, tariff, levy, duty or obligatory contribution associated with the implementation of Net Neutrality. It would be a tax, but the stupid voters will never understand that.
