Who’s Telling Truth About Nation’s Job Numbers?

Today, I ran across conflicting numbers about the nation’s employment situation. You decide who’s telling the truth.

Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D-MO) Job Numbers Lie

One set of claims (above) comes from Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO). In a graphic on her Facebook page. She shares this: “ICYMI: The economy has added 12.3 million private sector jobs in the last 62 months.”  In case you missed it, Claire, the economy is in the toilet thanks to you and your president’s misguided and dangerous policies and actions.

Zero Hedge: Not in Labor Force

A second set of claims comes from the popular website, Zero Hedge, and is accompanied by the an explanation that describes the April 2015 jobs payroll report as “unambiguously” unpleasant and indicative of “the accelerating deterioration of the broader economy.”

Bureau of Labor Statistics 5-9-2015

Finally, a set of numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the civilian labor force participation rate in the form of a chart that resembles a playground slide more accurately than it does anything positive about the economy.

All that in mind, please take my advice: DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU RE-ELECT ANY DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS SLIPPERY SLOPE.

Beginning Monday, and for a very limited time, I’m giving away free downloads of the ebook versions of my first three books.

To take advantage of this offer, simply visit my Amazon author page during the first three days of this week and download electronic versions of my books per this schedule:

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Monday, you can download the electronic book version of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011);

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, you can download the electronic book version of my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo (May 2013); and

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, you can download the electronic book version of my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet (November 2014).

Of course, there are a few “catches” I can’t enforce: In exchange for the free books, I ask for your feedback about them — good, bad or ugly — as well as photos of yourself holding up your ebook reading device with my book cover(s) displayed on screen. In addition, I hope you’ll share your feedback on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels. And beyond that, I hope you’ll purchase the paperback versions of the book — signed or unsigned — or support my work by clicking the donate button in the right sidebar of my website, BobMcCarty.com.

UPDATE 4/23/2015 at 7:40 a.m. Central: With barely 16 hours remaining on this free download offer, nearly 700 copies of the electronic versions of my books have been downloaded this week. Hurry to take advantage before time runs out!

UPDATE 4/24/2015 at 6:21 a.m. Central: The free downloads promotion ended at midnight with 898 free digital copies of my books being downloaded. I was surprised when my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet, turned out to be almost twice as popular as my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August. I was even more surprised to see my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, finish a distant third. Oh well, that’s how the cookie crumbles.
