Propaganda Blitz to Minimize Unemployment Catastrophe in the US

The propagandists at CNN are running a piece that pretends to explain how the unemployment rate number is calculated. This is an attempt to legitimatize the blatant fraud they have been reporting since the implosion of our economy. The communists are making every effort to minimize the reality of the non-recovery.
There was a propagandist speaking through the stupid tube and talking to us like we are a group of third graders, which in truth only those with a third grade mentality are capable of believing anything coming out of the mainstream media.
The piece begins by asserting that there are a little more than 300 million people in the United States. Not so, as there are 100 million illegal aliens that are not counted. The propagandist goes on to say that after taking out the children, retired folk, and others (what others), the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that about half of us in the workforce have jobs and the other 13 million or so are unemployed.
So, there are only 26 million people in the US workforce? The BLS, in 2009, reported that the American workforce consisted of 154,731,000 individuals in the civilian sector. This one distortion should be enough to prove this propaganda for the lie that it is. But let’s go a little further. If the number in 2009 was 154,731,000, and the number today is 26 million, then that would have to mean that 128,731,000 people in the American workforce are either not being counted or are not Americans.
