About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Hannity Purposely Misleads - Unemployment Stats For Women

Earlier this week Sean Hannity once again clearly revealed his harder than ever to conceal pro-establishment Republican Party stripes despite his constant claim to be a "Conservative – rather than a Republican" who is only interested in the good of the country.  What a crock.
On Monday I turned Hannity (on FNC) off when Sean & Dick Morris were bashing companies who paid no corporate income tax in 2011.  Anyone who knows the least bit about economics (let alone those who have attended any of my FairTax seminars or listened to my radio broadcasts posted on RTE) knows that corporations do not pay corporate income taxes – people do.  Why would these two influential broadcasters go against what they (have to) know is correct unless they are making a political point @ our expense.  I didn't wait to find out more as I turned off my TV in disgust.
On Tuesday night Sean stated the completely misleading statistic that women have lost over 90% of the jobs since BO took office.  Romney has fallen for the same statistical trick that will hurt him closer to the election if he continues to present this partial but misleading figure.
The stat overlooks the fact that over the entire recession (that started in December 2007 under Bush) men have lost many more jobs than women.  But the biggest job losses for men came earlier in the recession under Bush, and recovery for men has come faster under BO than it has for women.  Sean's stat is only important if you cared under whose administration you lost your job.
Please check out the above graph to see the statistics over the entire recession  - according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, between January 2009, when BO took office, and March 2012, there has been a net decline of 740,000 jobs for both men and women, and that among women during this time period there has been a net loss of 683,000 jobs. Do the arithmetic to find out that 92.3 percent of the jobs lost under BO were lost by women.  The number of men who lost jobs since the start of the recession that began under Bush & still have not found employment is well over three million - thereby dwarfing the stats for women. 
Do you want to get your news from people who skew facts this way?  BO will have a field day rebutting this info over the next six months which once again naturally leads to a comparison of his record to that of GW Bush which is red meat for energizing Democrats who outnumber us.
Carol told me we are not watching Sean again.


  1. I missed it ...cause I never watch Hannity...

  2. Am not sure what the problem is? Of course Sean uses stats for the political reasons the other side does with a vengeance. Hannity has said that corporations do not pay taxes when he is talking about a company propped up by BO. Maybe you should have listened longer. When the CEO of GE moved jobs to Mexico he eliminated American jobs. Percentages can be misleading - don't know why anybody uses them, for exact information nothing beats the true number.

    I'll guarantee Sean’s statements were used to rebut the left’s. I would not give up on him - there is more truth that is stated from him than fiction or just half truth commentary from anywhere else.

    I think you’re making a mistake. Even if Sean made a mistake if no one rebuts anything it will be the same when BO is elected.

    Sorry Doug I will continue to watch and listen to Sean although I am watching more science shows now anyway because everything is getting repetitive in the political world.

  3. You went to FactCheck.org for your info? No wonder your stats are skewed! One of more than a few liberal "lie" sites funded by George Soros. If any of you think that the media and this guy are independent thinkers, think again. They are all covering up for Obama. You just don't want to look at who Obama really is. Your vote for him will result in high taxes for everyone who works. January 1, 2013 will usher in $500 BILLION of new taxes. Let's see how you'll like that.

    RTE – Investors Business Daily was the source of the graph & stats. The blog, in posting after posting, very clearly portrays BO as wanting to complete the socialization of America for starters following the Alinsky Method. We don’t want to lose credibility with partial statistics, misleading stories, or half truths. We have a hard enough job with the real info which was one of the points of this posting. Please read the posting again Anonymous from this perspective. You & I are pulling in the same direction.
