U.S. unemployment now down to 5.8%; Americans show their dissatisfaction and vote for more destructive policies

Three days after voters expressed their discontent with the state of the economy, the government on Friday reported strong signs of improvement, estimating that employers added 214,000 jobs in October, while the official jobless rate dropped for the second month in a row to 5.8 percent.

The increase puts the average monthly employment gain for the past six months at 235,000 — an indication, analysts said, that the economy’s progress after years of meager growth was on the upswing.

A range of other job measures all improved, including a huge increase in the number of people reporting in a separate survey by the Labor Department that they found a job last month. At the same time, the government revised the figures for the two previous months, adding 31,000 more jobs to the numbers previously reported for August and September.

Nearly 1/3 of conservatives in Louisiana blame Obama for the Hurricane Katrina fiasco

by Ben Hoffman

propaganda-IIAh, the power of propaganda.

A significant chunk of Louisiana Republicans evidently believe that President Barack Obama is to blame for the poor response to the hurricane that ravaged their state more than three years before he took office.

29% of Louisiana Republicans said Obama, who was still a freshman U.S. Senator when the storm battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more responsible. Nearly half of Louisiana Republicans — 44 percent — said they aren’t sure who to blame. Only 28% said they think former President George W. Bush, who was in office at the time, was more responsible for the poor federal response.

An informed populace is the GOP’s worst nightmare. Studies show over and over that the more education a person has, the more likely that person is to be a Democrat. And the more religious a person is, the more likely that person is to be a Republican.

If you vote Republican, you’re partially responsible for the Iraq war disaster

Conservatives have been trying to blame the Iraq war disaster on Obama claiming Republicans “had it won,” but “Obama lost it.” They blame it on Hillary Clinton for voting for the Iraq war resolution. They even justify the disaster by claiming that “Bush found WMDs in Iraq.” He did, but those WMDs were sold to Hussein by Reagan and Bush, Sr, and they were all dismantled and disabled.

You can’t be a conservative without being willing to lie for the Republican party simply because you cannot defend Republican policies without lying.

Here’s the latest news about the Iraq war disaster…

Islamic State group extremists lined up and shot dead at least 50 tribesmen and women in Iraq’s Anbar province, officials said Saturday, the latest mass killing committed by the group.

The shooting happened late Friday in the village of Ras al-Maa, north of the provincial capital of Ramadi, Anbar councilman Faleh al-Issawi said.

Militants accused the men and women of the Al Bu Nimr tribe of retaliating against them after being displaced from their homes when the group seized the Anbar town of Hit last month, al-Issawi said.

“These killings are taking place almost on a daily basis now in the areas under the control of the Islamic State group and they will continue unless this terrorist group is stopped,” al-Issawi told The Associated Press.

An official in the Anbar governor’s office confirmed the death toll. He spoke on condition of anonymity as he is not authorized to brief journalists.

On Thursday, authorities found the bodies of 48 Sunni tribesmen killed by the Islamic State group in Anbar.
