Earlier this month the Obama Administration crowed that the full point drop in unemployment from 9.8% to 8.8%, in the last four months, is the best turn around since 1984. There was no mention of why this improvement happened except of course that THE ONE’s special economic policies are beginning to yield the benefits they were designed to bring forth (or some such nonsense).
What was not highlighted in the glow of the Administration’s back slapping, is that there is another statistic that goes back even further than 1984. Today, just 65% of men aged 16 to 64 are working which represents a huge drop from the 85% who were typically employed in the 1950s.

Obama is destroying America’s men and setting the stage for all men in our society to live as so many minority men now live. Obama’s oppressive policies are forcing Americans, especially men, to become tax cheats like so many of the people he surrounds himself with. On the path Obama is pushing men onto, they will work odd “off the books” jobs both legal and otherwise and find it more profitable to hide their relationship to their families in order maximize eligibility for government hand outs. Obama is injecting the “inner city” mentality into America’s suburban middle class in hopes of making the whole country dependent on government largesse.
The truth about the “drop” in unemployment numbers is that an increasing number of workers are merely giving up their search for non-existent jobs and thus no longer show up on the rolls of the unemployed.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics tells us when men between 55 and 64 lose their job, many remain unemployed permanently – they stop looking. The BLS explains that the male labor force has “shrunk” by .7% which explains why the unemployment rate for men is “only” 9.3%.
