Bureau of Lying Statistics (BLS) Update and Poem

2 May

A bit if doggerel in honor of the spin on today’s jobs report where we learned that another 806,000 people dropped out of the labor force, but since 288,000 jobs were created (even thought the birth/death adjustement was 234,000), the unemployment rate dropped to 6.3%. Mission Accomplished! Nothing to worry about here, right?

Charge-of-the-Light-Brigade

The Charge of the Easily Swayed
With apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Half the truth, half the truth,
Half the truth onward,
All in the valley of Lies
Rode the tax plundered.
“Forward, the easily swayed!
“Meme of the Day!” he said:
Into the valley of Lies
Rode the tax plundered.

Bullshit to right of them,
Bullshit to left of them,
Carney in front of them
Truth unencumbered;
Lies they so easily tell,
BLS gone to Hell
Into the valley of Lies
Rode the tax plundered.
