Much has been said about the January Non-farm payrolls number, which rose by 113K on expectations of a 180K increase, most of which has been focused on the US atmospheric conditions during the winter. There is a problem with those numbers: they don't really exist (as for the non-impact of "the weather" on jobs we*showed previously*that the number of people "not at work due to weather" as calculated by the BLS itself. this winter was lower than 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 - so much for historic winter weather).So what really happened in January?For the real answer we have to go to the BLS'*non-seasonally adjusted data series. It is here that we find that in January,*some 2.870 million real, actual jobs were*lost,*not gained. Putting this further in perspective, the number of NSA jobs losses in January 2014 was greater than in January of 2013, 2012, 2011 and tied that of 2010. In fact only during the peak of the depression in January 2009 was there a greater NSA drop in the first month of the year when 3.691 million jobs were lost.

John J. Owens is absolutely sure race had nothing to do with the reason why 30 black people attacked five white people, including a mom and a baby, near Macon Georgia last week.The alleged assailants and victims could have been any race. “Color doesn’t matter, only the ‘idiot factor’ matters,”*opined Mr. Owens in the Macon Telegraph.*That means the rest is random.

Holder: State Laws That Bar Felons From Voting Are ‘Too Unjust to Tolerate’

By*Susan Jones**February 12, 2014- See more at: B] – Three days after announcing that the U.S. Justice Department will recognize same-sex marriages in all legal matters, even in states that forbid it, Attorney General Eric Holder took a swipe at states that don’t allow felons to vote.“In many states, felony disenfranchisement laws are still on the books. And the current scope of these policies is not only too significant to ignore -- it is also too unjust to tolerate,” Holder told a criminal justice forum at Georgetown University Law Center.Holder urged lawmakers “to stand together in overturning an unfortunate and outdated status quo.” And he called on the American people “to join us in bringing about the end of misguided policies that unjustly restrict what's been called the ‘most basic right’ of American citizenship.”- See more at:

Deputies: Gang members caused State Fair chaos

Posted:*Feb 11, 2014 12:21 PM MSTUpdated:*Feb 12, 2014 8:58 AM MSTBy: Aaron Mesmer, FOX 13 News -bio

TAMPA (FOX 13) -New video released Tuesday by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office shows the start of what would become a massive stampede of rowdy students at the Florida State Fair that led to dozens of ejections and several arrests.The video was shot by a vendor and handed over to investigators as they try to identify victims and make more arrests in connection to the organized stampede known as "wilding.""It's more of a giant stampede, and that's kind of the beginning of it that you see on that video," explained Col. Jim Previtera. "It does give a brief glimpse of what 'wilding' looks like."The stampede, which investigators said involved many teenagers attending with free student tickets, led to 99 ejections and 12 arrests Friday and forced authorities to shut the fair down early.Previtera made another revelation: Known gang members were involved in the ordeal; several of them even took pictures at a photo booth at the fair."Certainly the gang element adds an organized group into the mix that's there for one purpose, and that's certainly not to take advantage of the rides," he said. "They were there to cause problems."Two undercover detectives with the sheriff's office gang unit were thrust into the middle of the chaotic scene."You have people coming from everywhere, 360 degrees, you never know where it's coming from and you're trying to prepare yourself for the situation that may occur, that you really don't know what's going to happen," said one of the detectives, who asked to not be identified."They're trampling patrons, knocking them over, using it as an opportunity to commit crimes," the other detective said, describing the actions of the gang members. "They were using it as a means to instill fear in the crowd and basically have fun at the crowd's expense."Sheriff David Gee, meanwhile, sent a letter to leaders in the African American community, asking for their help."I am concerned that the overwhelming number of youth and young adults arrested or ejected from the midway for misconduct were African American," Gee wrote in the letter.
