Annual budget of the fat, bloated and utterly useless Bureau of Labor Statistics: $1,800,000,000.00 ($1.8 billion)
Tyler Durden deconstructing the Bureau of Labor Statistics' laughable propaganda: priceless!
For everyone who wants to see a simple yet explicit example of how the BLS' relentless propaganda courtesy of perpetual prior "adjustments" trickles down in terms of media propaganda, here it is.
All of this would be great... if only the March 15th original number of 351,000 wasn't lower than the April 5th pre-revision number of 357,000, and which next week will be revised to 361,000!
In other words, the BLS continues to revise prior numbers -- after the fact -- to disguise the ongoing Obama Recession.
• On 3/15, 351,000 unemployment claims represented a four-year low
• On 3/22, 348,000 also was a four-year low
• On 3/29, 359,000 also was a four-year low
• On 4/05, 357,000 also was a four-year low
Only in the mind of a propagandist does that math make sense.
Ain't our media great?
