Quote of the day - Two plus two equals?

"In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it."

- George Orwell

Indeed.  Just look at anti-gunners.  Their positions necessitate that what is, is not.  And it's not just anti-gunners.  Look at CNN, MSNBC etc. etc. today parrotting the "unemployment drops from 9 to 8.6%!" line. You would think something great happened.

What their rosy headlines fail to mention is that the rate dropped because some 315,000 people left the labor force. That is, they stopped looking for work.  Just think, if we can get a million more American's to stop looking for a job maybe the liberal media can claim unemployment has dropped to 7% under Obama!  A Keynesian success!
