The ‘big lie’ about unemployment in Oregon

Dan Lucas_July 2012_BW

by Dan Lucas

On Tuesday the CEO of polling firm Gallup wrote an opinion piece called The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment. It’s about how the official unemployment rate is extremely misleading – because disappeared in that rate are all the people who’ve given up looking for a job or who are underemployed. The Gallup CEO wrote “as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed.”

The same thing is happening here in Oregon. The Oregon Employment Department and local media have touted “that Oregon has regained all the jobs lost during the recession.” Continue reading

Update on the Petition Requesting President Obama Resign

Right From the Start

Right From the Start

A month ago we started a petition drive requesting President Barack Obama to resign as being unfit for the office of President of the United States. At that time we promised to provide the results of our efforts.

In a nutshell it was an abject failure. As of January 29, 2015, we had gathered only 73 signatures.

Let me explain. We* chose to utilize a website created by Mr. Obama’s White House on the pretext of providing an open and transparent administration. When the website was initiated in September of 2011, the threshold number of signatures required was 5,000 in thirty days. Because small groups were having success in mobilizing the requisite number of signatures, Mr. Obama immediately raised the threshold to 25,000 in October of 2011. In January of 2013 Mr. Obama raised the threshold to 100,000 signatures virtually ensuring that only nationwide organizations with substantial email lists, professional staff and access to the new digital worlds would be able to utilize the website.
