‘Obamacare math’: Nancy Pelosi claims $10.10 minimum wage would create 85,000 jobs; Citizens call BS
The above statement is absolutely true, which is why Rep. Nancy Pelosi went ahead and said it anyway: Joined @askgeorge and @USDOL today in calling on GOP to #raisethewage to $ 10.10. If we do, we can create 85,000 jobs. http://t.co/9wZo0YBlxm— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) January 15, 2014 If that would create 85,000 jobs, why not raise [……

Why does it make us nervous when Sen. Harry Reid says there’s more work left to do — and then presents this graph showing there still isn’t any work to be had? Unemployment rate is still higher than when Pres Bush first signed emergency UI. More work left to do. #renewUI http://t.co/FnX3YUTdBQ— Senator Harry Reid […] Twitchy » US Politics

Mike Rowe of ‘Dirty Jobs’ Unveils Exciting Scholarship Program Rooted in Hard Work – Read the Amazing ‘S.W.E.A.T. Pledge’ Students Must Take First
Mike Rowe, formerly of Dirty Jobs, appeared on TheBlaze TV’s “Wilkow!” Thursday night to discuss his exciting new scholarship program, the mikeroweWORKS Scholarship Fund. The goal is to get high school seniors ready to enter the workforce with the skills they need to land the jobs that are available in the U.S. — the key word being available.
Much has been broadcast, written and said about the shortage of skilled tradesmen and women in the U.S. While the national unemployment rate remains stubbornly high, some companies still have difficulty filling positions for machinists, welders and other vocational jobs because of the lack of qualified applicants. As you might imagine, firearm manufacturers have a pressing need for skilled laborers. To ensure they have a pool of qualified workers, some gunmakers are taking proactive steps to help train the next generation of American tradesmen.
What, no pom-poms and “rah-rah-econo-meh” from the usual suspects today?
Here’s why: Putting a positive spin on 7.3 percent unemployment is a fast track to beclownment no matter how cute the Left thinks its Obama cheerleader uniforms are.
We’re looking at downward revisions of June and July employment numbers and a 35-year low in workforce participation.
Big ouch on this month's jobs report. Downward revisions and 300+k dropped out of the workforce.—

The Steve Jobs schools in the Netherlands are founded by the O4NT (Education For A New Time) organisation, which provides the children with iPads to help them learn with a more interactive experience. Those kids are going to be ace at Angry Birds. [...]
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called for his colleagues to defund Obamacare in a floor speech today, citing the fear that businesses will cut employees’ hours rather than face the crushing expense of implementing the mandates of the Affordable Care Act. The White House was quick to respond, issuing a graphic to assure followers that restaurant employees are working more hours. At least, there’s no evidence to prove that they’re working fewer hours — yet.

It’s not just left-wing pundits and groups like the Center for American Progress trying to tie today’s dismal jobs numbers to “sequester spring.” Now the White House is getting in on the dizzying spin. Unexpectedly!
It’s been 100 days since the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre and President Obama still hasn’t banned guns yet, but he assures us he hasn’t “forgotten about those kids.” We’d begun to suspect he had forgotten, though, about that important three-letter word that used to be thrown around during his first term: J-O-B-S. It has been nearly two years since Obama joked that “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.”
