How is Unemployment Calculated?

Sierra Vista Herald

Letter to the Editor



Unemployment rate …


Do you know how it is calculated?  Did you know that once you no longer receive unemployment benefits you are no longer ‘counted as unemployed’?   So as millions reach the 99th week limit for unemployment….they are no longer counted in the government numbers.  They are, however, still unemployed.


Once a job is gone – a business closes, down-sizing, these jobs are not…

raided due to a lack of a donation

Hi Joanne,


I beg to differ that the only reason for the raid was a lack of a donation.  Obama and his appointed crony thugs (the most current in a long line of anti-American politicians) have control over the strong arm divisions of all federal departments and they are using those “public servants” to ridicule, intimidate and control those citizens in “We the People” that object to the violations of our Constitution and the socialization of our country. (remember Ruby Ridge,…

Here it comes, get prepared

Hear it comes…

I mean to be blunt! Maybe it will wake up some of you that are asleep or in denial that it cannot happen in America. Has anyone read my blog post about the dictator in our house and the takeover of our country? (link)

How much proof do you need? Is stating current/new laws that violate our constitution and take away rights not enough? How about another real life example of Hitler’s Gestapo type tactics on an American…

A dictator in our house

I do not like to say this, but I like putting my head in the sand and ignoring reality even less.

For those with ears to hear,

With few exceptions, politicians and government workers believe they are above the law and that they are immune and no longer responsible or answerable to the electorate.

The media is filled with examples of national level government workers and politicians that have that opinion.

I have first hand knowledge of state workers and…

Tribute to Sheriff Larry Dever and the First Responders

If you were not lucky enough to make the Tribute for Sheriff Larry Dever and the Monument Fire First Responders then you missed a great evening.  The MC for the evening was Dan Abrams and he did an outstanding job.  His opening statement was incredible and I want to share it with everyone because he expressed the essence of what we all feel here about those who keep us safe and secure:


Good afternoon. I’m Dan Abrams, a proud…

All Enemies, Foreign and Domestic

I read the following article with great difficulty. Though I do not, necessarily, agree with the extent of the authors beliefs, I do agree with the major premise of this article because I, also, am a disabled vet and it reflects much of my own thoughts.

Brazilian Oil Loan and drilling in the Gulf

I would like to recommend that all members of the Tea Party movement start an Email, Telephone and mail campaign to all of the Senate and House of Representative to stop President Obamas Loan to the Brazillian Government and and the authorization for drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and everywhere else until they have issued the permits to all the U.S. companies who have applied for permits. It is idiotic to grant loans to foreign countries and permits to foreign countries while our own…

A Nursery Rhyme revisited

The Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick maker

A Nursery Rhyme revisited

The butcher spends his time converting livestock into meat and poultry products and then puts the results of his time and effort into the open market.

The baker spends his time and effort making bread and pastries and soups and sandwiches. People come into his little shop for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The candlestick maker puts his energy and talent into…

The commerce clause - abused by the feds

This is a letter posted to (book referred to is one of the best I have seen on how and why our Constitution was written and what was the mind set of our founders)

Plan, Organize and Prepare

I can only see what I can see, And it frightens me to my core

Is civil war inevitable? Is America facing its worst crisis since the 1860’s? Is America the proverbial frog in hot water? I can only see what I can see and it scares me, it frightens me, it saddens me to watch this once great nation descend into irrelevant mediocrity. History is replete with nations that have gone quietly into the night and disappeared.

I can only see what I can see and I see…

It Is Going to Get Worse Before It Gets Better

The States are all facing budget crisis and it seems that the general public doesn't want to recognize that this is the end of the line.   The only states that will survive are those who are willing to take the most drastic measures to balance their budgets. A good example of the worst of our "society" is what is going on in Wisconsin.  The unions are out to  create havoc with the teachers and the kids be damned in spite of their pre printed signs that they are carrying.
