Even though this administration continues to say the economy is improving, it seems to me one would have to be “non compos mentis” to believe it. Anyone seeking to truth will necessarily come to a different conclusion.

This is just one of several articles I’ve written on this subject. And the reason I keep writing is because as the economy progressively worsens our government equally intensifies its propaganda to make its citizenry believe otherwise. If nothing else is true about this White House, they are undeniably masters of deceit.

In the last article on this subject I noted that while the government claims the economy is improving, more and more businesses are downsizing, reducing staff, or simply going out of business. And I listed several large companies by name. But as it turns out, that was just a tip of the iceberg.

E News announced that through March of this year there have been on average four companies per day filing for bankruptcy.

And through this same time period there have been fifteen FDIC bank failures. That is a staggering average of five closings per month. And let’s not forget that in each of those there were job losses and expenditure of tax-payer funds.

Then there is the Huffington Post, a company not unfriendly to the White House, announcing that T-Mobile USA will be closing seven call centers and cutting 1,900 jobs, or five percent of its workforce. The German communications company also stated that more positions may be eliminated over the next few months.

Even companies supplying our food needs are not immune to the sinking economy. Albertsons, one of the nation’s largest grocery chains, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, announced on April 11 it is closing thirteen stores in Florida.

And one thing not being reported by this administration is the fact that more people are presently either out of work or have been forced to accept lower-paying or temporary jobs than at any other time in the history of this nation. The 8.2% unemployment rate the administration seems so proud of is nothing more than a façade to conceal the ugly truth. As one of my college professors said, statistics can be made to tell any story one desires.

So, as engineers, teachers, managers, home builders and others are forced to flip burgers or become day-laborers just to put food on the table, the White House is all smiles. It matters not that those same workers may no longer be able to pay their mortgages.

And who’s counting those who have become so discouraged they are no longer looking for employment?

Now back to the original question; why does our government hide the truth about the economy? Why are they attempting to dumb-down the masses?

The reason is quite simple – the more people who know the truth, the less chance this administration will be around for another four years. That’s it in a nutshell!
