If the U.S. Unemployment Rate is at 5.1% and 94,610,000 people (ages 16 and over) were not in the labor force in September, then using elementary school math should we believe the population of the U.S. to be 1,855,098,039 (calculated 94,610,000 * 100 / 5.1)?
KSL reports the nationwide jobless rate is 5.1 percent‐That is simply not true.
In case anyone derides me for posting this article, see There Is Absolutely Nothing Wrong with Asking Questions” –Elder Ballard.
According to well-respected economist John Williams of ShadowStats.com, the U.S. August 2015 unemployment figures were 22.9%. John uses the government’s accounting and statistical methods before they were altered to deceive the American people. Real unemployment figures must include citizens who are underemployed or who have given up searching for a job.
My wife argues that KSL writers either do what they are told or are ignorant. I argue that surely they and their editors read DrudgeReport who reported several times this year that 93 million Americans are unemployed.
If I were an outsider I’d consider that misrepresenting true unemployment numbers is good for tithing receipts but I know the LDS Church doesn’t operate that way. Apostles and prophets are truly Christian in both words and deeds.
Having read the Book of Mormon several times, and knowing what the book records of the damage evil organizations can do to civilizations, I repeatedly wonder why Mormon-Owned KSL publishes Associated Press propaganda. Notice this article below is not by the Associated Press—just KSL:
How can a person think critically and ignore noise and falsehoods? My friend Glen offers this excellent advice:
I fear you’ll make yourself unhealthy if you stress so much over things like this. In the big picture, ask yourself what difference does it really make? Pick a few important issues to address to make the world a better place and leave the other stuff alone. It’s not worth your mental cycles. It’s God’s universe… Try letting Him manage it. Meanwhile, re-read Matthew 23:23,24. Stop straining…. Focus on the weightier matters.
The more weightier matters include the globalists and banksters are pushing the world towards WW III and we should all be preparing diligently for our families to survive.
And the gospel must be preached to all the nations of the earth before the end comes.
