Gallup CEO; I Might Disappear for Telling the Truth About the Obama Economy

Gallup CEO Jim Clifton told CNBC he might “suddenly disappear” for telling the truth about the Obama unemployment rate. 
Years of unending news stories on U.S. government programs of surveillance,rendition and torture have apparently chilled the speech of even top business executives in the United States.

Yesterday, Jim Clifton, the Chairman and CEO of Gallup, an iconic U.S. company dating back to 1935, told CNBC that he was worried he might “suddenly disappear” and not make it home that evening if he disputed the accuracy of what the U.S. government is reporting as unemployed Americans.
The CNBC interview came one day after Clifton had penned a gutsy opinion piece on Gallup’s web site, defiantly calling the government’s 5.6 percent unemployment figure “The Big Lie” in the article’s headline. His appearance on CNBC was apparently to walk back the “lie” part of the title and reframe the jobs data as just hopelessly deceptive.
Clifton stated the following on CNBC:
“I think that the number that comes out of BLS [Bureau of Labor Statistics] and the Department of Labor is very, very accurate. I need to make that very, very clear so that I don’t suddenly disappear. I need to make it home tonight.”
After getting that out of the way, Clifton went on to eviscerate the legitimacy of the cheerful spin given to the unemployment data, telling CNBC viewers that the percent of full time jobs in this country as a percent of the adult population “is the worst it’s been in 30 years.

    It's nice to see the "so called" mainstream media catching up with the rest of us.

    The problem, with unemployment of at least 25% and Obamacare destroying full-time jobs, is the "toys" you speak of consist of food, clothing and shelter for a lot of Americans. I'm not a supporter of rampant consumerism, but I do support maintaining personal circumstances when there is no rational alternative.

    As to money; we don't have much. Our coinage is the only thing not marked "Federal Reserve". The rest is either pretty pieces of paper we believe have value or, and this takes REAL BELIEF, exist only as blips of data in computers (the actual majority of what we laughingly call money). Honestly, I believe all the hoorah about solar or "enemy" EMPs is just laying out the grounds for wiping out a whole lot of debt by destroying the systems it operates on. That provides a "final solution" to digital currencies as well.

    I will ad that, even if you can't stop employment for homeschooling, you can choose to make their lunches instead. Any authority that questions this should be queried by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested, with similarly sent copies to the local and State School Boards. One thing UNIVERSALLY DESPISED by paper-pushers is correspondence they can't disavow. It's like a Chain Letter; none of them want to break the "chain" because they might get left holding the bag..., so to speak.
