Ask yourselves why there is a divergence between the blue line to the right and the grey and red lines that our government says unemployment is at. Could it be because our government no longer counts those that are unemployed for any length of time?

How does your job compare to the rest of American jobs by pay?

According to the May 2013 totals that the BLS OES has posted on their site, we had 132,458,430 jobs that were not self employed.

I broke these down by the various pay categories that I have worked in over the last 30 years.

Those that are paid less than $25,000 per year are struggling which is why I understand the need to raise the wages in this group.

Those that  are paid more than $25,000 but less than $50,000 are getting by with maybe even a toy or two.

Those that are paid more than $50,000 but less than $75,000 may even own their own home by now.

Those that are making more than $75,000 but less than $100,000 may even have some savings and a home.

Those that are making more than $100,000 are doing as well as can be expected in America.

I base this on my own experience because I was in the more than $100,000 category before I was displaced by temporary workers brought in to displace Americans via various visa types such as H-1B, and now the newly minted H-4.

As you can see, 25% of our population makes less than $25,000 per year.

And 42% of our population makes less than $50,000 per year.

In other words, a little over two thirds of the entire population of America make less than $50,000 per year.

And the remaining one third of our population is being displaced by plane load after plane load of temporary workers brought in to displace Americans in America, which is forcing those Americans into the lower pay brackets, and making the competition for those 25% of our jobs extreme.

Unless of course, you are a hard headed german like me, and you choose to fight rather than give up.

I do not recommend that you do that, unless of course we are united, because divided, you will lose everything just as I have.

Now let’s break down those jobs so that we can see what is available.

There Is No Such Thing As Racism In America. China’s Constitution. Dangerous Fools.

Yesterday I spoke with a middle-aged business owner, who happened to be white, who was worried about racism.  I can pretty well remember my response:

  • “I just wrote a piece the other day in which I said that racism, as we understand racism — as we trade in racism — has nothing to do with racism, and nothing to do with race.  In our culture it’s a time-honored skill.  It’s economic survival.  You can spot a man’s color a mile away.  You see him coming your way and right away you know he’s going to cost you money.  He’s going to threaten your job, compete for your resources; he’s going to raise your taxes — raid your taxes — and lower your property values.  It’s economic — which in any society means everything that people need, even if it’s not material.  Now think about an economy in which there’s more than enough for everyone.  Where’s the racism?  Where’s the resentment?  The dirty secret is that an economy like this would be easy to accomplish — but we need more industry, more real wealth, not less.  Our deindustrialization is taking us in the wrong direction.  Now think about who benefits by creating our real problems in the first place and then telling us what our real problems are.  Some people are grabbing all the limited resources they can — resources that don’t have to be limited and could so easily be abundant — and some people just need to feel superior, even if they haven’t really thought this through.  Like I said, we trade in racism. . . .”

At this point, the middle-aged business owner cut me off with an, “Oh my god.  You’re right.  It’s all economic.  Everything’s economic.”

I thought you might find this helpful, if a bit unconventional.

Turning to a more useful application of ostensibly racist imagination:

“On First Annual Constitution Day, China’s Most Censored Word Was ‘Constitution'”

www.foreignpolicy.com/2014/12/05/china-constitution-censorship-rule-of-law

  • The irony highlights Beijing’s fraught relationship with the document.

Anyone who believes a word of Communist Chinese or interprets Communist China with a Western mind is an ignorant fool.

I am not saying they were born ignorant fools or will necessarily remain ignorant fools — just that they’re a threat to your economic well-being.

Cherchez la Chine.  It doesn’t make you a better person not to.

The U.S. Government is the biggest discriminator of all

Seven jobs today on usajobs.gov

Most I am not qualified for.

But the electrician and the loan specialist (realty), I could do because I used to be a marine electrician at Bath Iron Works when I first got out of the navy, and I am a licensed realtor here in texas.

Yet, I can’t even apply for them.

At the bottom of this list, I will show you all that I have applied for.

Damn it, if you have a disabled vet, they should go to the head of the line.

I am not, but I am an unemployed vet, and I desperately need a job that will allow me to pay my bills, and I’m sick of hearing Uncle Sam say we hire veterans when there are so many of us that are on the street, or close to being on the street.

How soon will it be before the rest of the Software developers find themselves too old to work in a industry where age discrimination is rampant?

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

I was given a refrigerator today and got it hooked up this afternoon.

The philosophy is, one for food, and one for beer.

The food one has a few things in it thanks to Uncle Sam, but the beer one will probably remain empty for awhile as I’m out of propane, money, and gasoline for the truck.

Most of the younger developers that will look at this page will say, that will never happen to me because I’m good, and I pull my own weight.

Got news for you junior, I’m one of the best out there at reverse engineering systems or data which is how I’m coming up with all of the data showing age discrimination, and I can’t buy a god damned interview at any level.

Some of my friends tell me to give up and get a convenience store job and accept your lot in life.

All which I want to pay, but can’t.
Thank You White House, Senators, and Congressmen for doing your part to represent Americans in America

Yet when I ask them to pick something I can cut off, they simply say you will lose something.

And if I could but get back to work, all of this nightmare would be over in two paydays.

And you wonder why I fight.

Gunfight at the O.K. Buffet

I will be happy to debate any presidential candidate on any subject related to the well-being of American citizens.

It is impossible for an honest, well-informed person to lose a debate — especially to a professional politician.  Someone like me — or someone like me — would change our politics forever.  Frankly, on behalf of a dying democracy, I would love to tear some frontrunner a new one, for all the young voters to see.

Today’s Chinese buffet is “all you can stomach”:

“Zhou Yongkang kicked out of Chinese Communist Party”

[SCMP link — December 6, 2014]

  • Zhou Yongkang, 72, China’s former security chief and Politburo member, has been stripped of his Communist Party membership and will face prosecution.
  • He was also accused of causing heavy losses of state-owned assets.  The announcement was the first time that allegations that Zhou leaked state secrets had been reported.

“Military Graft Fighters ‘Arrest Major General for Taking Bribes'”

[Caixin link — December 4, 2014]

  • She is vice political commissar and secretary of the Communist Party’s discipline committee of the People’s Liberation Army Information Engineering University in Zhengzhou, in the central province of Henan.

“Corruption index reflects West’s prejudice”

[Global Times link — December 5, 2014]

  • This 20-place fall in ranking, which does not in the slightest reflect how terrified China’s corrupt officials are due to the anti-graft campaign, is barefaced mendacity.
  • This ranking is not a big deal to China, and China’s consistent efforts to fight corruption are to create a better society, not to have a good name among the international community.  But we need to reconsider whether many Western organizations, given Transparency International’s clumsy mistake, deserve our trust or not.

“Xi Jinping urges development of military equipment systems”

[Xinhua link — December 5, 2014]

  • The building of equipment systems should be information-led and pay great attention to weapon quality, said Xi.  Equipment systems are now in a period of strategic opportunities and at a key point for rapid development, he noted.  The PLA must understand and make plans for system building in the context of the changes in both the international strategic structure and Chinese national security.  A strong and modern army equipment system plays an irreplaceable role for the full realization of the Chinese dream, Xi said, adding that the PLA must enhance political consciousness to seize the opportunity and ensure the rapid upgrading of equipment.

“How much does PLA soldier’s individual equipment cost?”

[China Military Online link — December 5, 2014]

  • The cost of a set of PLA soldier’s standard individual equipment at battlefield only equals two entry-level iPhone6.  But the cost of a set of U.S. soldier’s standard individual equipment at battlefield equals to the value of a mid-level car, almost the price of 20 high-level iPhone6.

The PLA understands that more defense spending does not mean more defense.

More domestic manufacturing means more defense.

“We gave up our future, families and friends. / Dollar to the giant, dollar never seen again.”

Are you getting ready to take my song seriously?

Why is the White House rewarding foreign born and penalizing native born when it comes to jobs?

Foreign Born Ending Qty Beginning Qty Gain/Loss
Civlian Labor Force            26,536,000            23,494,000            3,042,000
Employment Level 25108000 22356000            2,752,000
Unemployment Level 1428000 1138000                290,000
Native Born
Civlian Labor Force 129760000 128430000            1,330,000
Employed 122558000 121919000                639,000
Unemployed 7202000 6511000                691,000

Earlier today I posted some charts that you can view below these lines.
But I wanted to see what the gain or loss was in numbers so that you too could see it.

As you can see above, it ain’t good for the home team.
Trust me, I know as I have worked around technology all my life, and for the most part I’ve been on the bench since 2003, and the more of this stuff I see, the more determined I get to get back in the game.

Protest This — The Cause, The All-Time Records — Not The Effect

Protestors, one of the surest signs you’re digging your own grave(s) is that you’re getting so much media attention.  Think about it.  Who controls the media why would they help you — especially with publicity?  Now try to predict how this story ends.  I’ll guess that it’s already been scripted.

More later.  First: two new reports and two old quotations.

“U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services — October 2014″

www.census.gov/foreign-trade/Press-Release/current_press_release/ft900.pdf

  • Goods deficit: $65,933,000,000 — or $2.1 billion dollars in factories, good jobs, and real wealth production lost every day.
  • Goods imports: $211,264,000,000 — an all-time record.

“The Employment Situation — November 2014″

www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

  • Total nonfarm jobs: up +497,000
  • Goods-producing jobs: down -90,000

George Washington:

  • “Designing men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real difference of local interests and views.”

Henry David Thoreau:

  • “There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.”

My Advice:

  • Protest the underlying disorder — not the symptoms and effects.

There are people who want us divided and distracted.  By protesting the social symptoms of economic cancer — deindustrialization — we play right into their hands.

With a few simple laws, we could create enough new wealth — real wealth — to pay for everything our people need.

Everything.

In Twelve Months, They’ve Aged Twelve Years

Twelve months later, I’ve landed in the same American city.  Not much has changed except the same young faces.  In twelve months they’ve aged twelve years.  The economy is written all over them.

I don’t like seeing this, but someone has to — or we’re all history.

The November jobs report will be released tomorrow morning.  In the meantime, you might appreciate the following mainstream article.  It’s “old news” and not unusually insightful, but it’s not a waste of your time.

“It’s official: America is now No. 2″

www.marketwatch.com/story/its-official-america-is-now-no-2-2014-12-04

  • For the first time since Ulysses S. Grant was president, America is no longer the leading economic power on the planet.  It just happened — and almost nobody noticed.
  • Yes, when you look at mere international exchange rates, the U.S. economy remain bigger than that of China, allegedly by almost 70%.  But such measures, although they are widely followed, are largely meaningless.  Does the U.S. economy really shrink if the dollar falls 10% on international currency markets?
  • Make no mistake.  This is a geopolitical earthquake with a high reading on the Richter scale.  Throughout history, political and military power have always depended on economic power.
  • We have lived for 200 years . . . in a world dominated by two reasonably democratic, constitutional countries in Great Britain and the U.S.A.  For all their flaws, the two countries have been in the vanguard worldwide in terms of civil liberties, democratic processes, and constitutional rights.

Of course, the conventional methods for predicting an economy’s longevity are so flawed — GDP, for example, boasts high prices over low quantities of goods produced — we are not No. 2 —

— we are much further down the list.

Will Rep. Lou Barletta protect American Workers?

“But how does that make it easier for the American worker?” Representative Barletta asked. “We keep talking about the illegal immigrant. Here we go again, talking about the illegal immigrant and how we can make it easier for them. How does this help the American worker who can’t find work and can’t provide for his family? Who’s fighting for them? Why don’t we talk about the American worker and what this will do to them, not what it will do for the illegal immigrant?”

https://www.numbersusa.com/news/representative-lou-barletta-who-will-protect-american-workers-amnesty-fight

Rep. Barletta, let me show you the next phase of development here at Keep America At Work.

I have already developed an application that will show you the top 50 most requested STEM jobs for H-1B applicants in 2014.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you can see it by clicking here.

You can also view the top 50 for 2013 by clicking here.

My next step is to develop the following dashboard that any American can use to see if the visa holders that are taking their jobs are being paid the same wages, and if not, so that they will realize that they as Americans are not even being given the opportunity to compete for these jobs that they have held for decades.

Case in point, my last 3 gigs were those of a systems analyst.

Yet I have not worked since Aug 2010 and trust me, my skills get better every day.

But I still can’t buy an interview because of the huge demand for H-1B’s over Americans in America, and because of Age Discrimination in the Tech Industry (I will turn 57 on 27 Dec 2014).

Last night I put together a prototype dashboard to use in designing this system.

The numbers, and figures cited are real live figures taken from the latest data on a national and a Texas level.

So yes, Rep. Lou Barletta, I for one am glad that you are asking these questions.

Because this is America, and these are the lives of Americans that are being destroyed by our corporations bringing in cattle car after cattle car of low wage easily managed and immobile applicants.

My plan is to take the links above.

And turn it into the following dashboard.

 

  1. Select your job OCC_CODE and your state
  2. Display a dashboard

 

Using this as an example:

 

Occupation Code:                            15-1121

Number of jobs in America:        507,100

Number of jobs in Texas:             45,710

 

Annual Salary in America:             $85,320.00

Hourly Salary in America:              $41.02

 

Annual Salary in Texas:                  $87,340.00

Hourly Salary in Texas:                   $41.99

 

Quantity of LCA Applications Filed in America:                    91,958

Quantity of Workers Requested on these applications: 258,820

 

Quantity of LCA Applications Filed in Texas:                         9,944

Quantity of Workers Requested on these applications: 22,730

 

National Salary Offered:

You Stupid Western Experts: “The Highest Law of All”

What part of 1.4 billion genetically superior and ethically inscrutable people with 3,000 years of historical experience don’t you understand?

By the way, have you ever actually read China’s constitution?

“National Constitution Day to shore up awareness”

[Xinhua link — December 3, 2014]

  • The Constitution of China conforms to the conditions and reality of the country, and is in accordance with the development of the times.  It is a guarantee of the socialist path with Chinese characteristics, Xi said, adding the Constitution’s authority is paramount.  Xi wants Constitution Day to teach people about the highest law of all, so that the Constitution is fully implemented.
  • Xi’s words were echoed by top legislator Zhang Dejiang who . . . said education should focus on contemporary history and all China has achieved, bearing in mind the development, inevitability and importance of China’s Constitution.
  • Observing Constitution Day and requiring government officials to pledge their allegiance to the Constitution before taking office are concrete measures to that end.  A supervision mechanism is vital to ensure the implementation of the Constitution; violations and lax enforcement should be punished accordingly.

“Court ruling needed to push Constitution”

[Global Times link — December 4, 2014]

  • China lacks an authoritative interpretation of the Constitution.  For example, the Constitution clearly states that the CPC is the leader of this country, but it also endows Chinese people with free speech.  If some people take advantage of their rights to speak freely, circulating ideas to topple the CPC’s leadership, how can we define the nature of their actions?  Such debates are growing intense.  Addressing the contradiction requires the consensus of the majority of society.  If individuals attempt to interpret the Constitution themselves, they will naturally put their own spin on it due to their own views and values.  The standing committee of the National People’s Congress should take on the job of interpreting the Constitution.

About my opening salvo:

I’m mostly repeating what I was taught in college by sinologists and physical anthropologists during the 1970s of political correctness.  I say “mostly” because they were professionally careful to observe and interpret but never judge another culture’s ethics and/or morality — and/or if any.

Interestingly, these white western scholars didn’t hesitate to call themselves genetically and evolutionarily inferior to their Chinese subjects.

Still, they were not so inferior that they underestimated life.

If Chickens Ate Omelettes

We’re fascinated by symptoms.  We wallow in symptoms.  We won’t be distracted by any talk of prevention, much less an accurate diagnosis.

“Ferguson” (whatever this currently means) has nothing to do with racism.  For that matter, racism has nothing to do with racism — or even race.  It’s a way to recognize an economic threat.

When people are Safe — with a capital S to include the psychological essential — they don’t need to be dysfunctional or destructive.

Now is a good time to understand what the Roman poet Juvenal told our Western civilization some 2,000 years ago:

  • “Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties, for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”

Some 2,000 years later, we still can’t remember our own childhoods.  We still don’t know what to give our children.

We are an industrial People deindustrializing — dehumanizing — and wallowing in the symptoms as we surrender our economy to industrializing nations like China.

It doesn’t have to be this way.  We can produce enough new wealth to eliminate the symptoms of dehumanizing deindustrialization – including self-absorption.

 

Or we can produce enough new wealth to eliminate the symptoms of self-absorption — including deindustrializing dehumanization.  It’s kind of a chicken-and-egg thing — with chickens that eat eggs.
What’s important to remember is that when people’s real needs are met, they’re happy and they’re symptom-free.

Propaganda To Encourage Your Vulnerability

Social division is big business in the “United” States — a parasite we could still afford if our economy were still manufacturing real wealth.  Now that we’ve been talked into deindustrialization, the only opportunists who profit from U.S. disunity are foreign opportunists.  Our traditional-and-familiar domestic opportunists are being used — and their days are numbered.

Some advice from Eleanor:

  • “It’s your life — but only if you make it so.  The standards by which you live must be your own standards, your own values, your own convictions in regard to what is right and wrong, what is true and false, what is important and what is trivial.  When you adopt the standards and the values of someone else or a community or a pressure group, you surrender your own integrity.  You become, to the extent of your surrender, less of a human being.”
  • “It is a brave thing to have courage to be an individual; it is also, perhaps, a lonely thing.  But it is better than not being an individual, which is to be nobody at all.”

“Modernization Efforts, Concerns over China Giving Rise to Robust Asia-Pacific Defense Market”

www.forecastinternational.com/press/release.cfm?article=289

  • Many of these nations are not only increasing their defense budgets and expanding their procurement requirements, but are also looking to cooperate with nations viewed by China as strategic rivals.  Thus Vietnam is looking to broaden its military supply chain to include the U.S.

To be sure, the PRC/CCP/PLA is having loads of fun selling weapons to its rivals —

— and loads of fun fanning flames.

Propaganda To Encourage Your Complacency

The redoubtable Richard McCormack has done a useful job of making this China Commission bureaucrats’ report —

www.uscc.gov/Annual_Reports/2014-annual-report-congress

— sound tougher than it really is.  I’m still shaking my head over Commissioner Reinsch’s “Additional Views” on page 556.  If the Commissioner worked for me. . . .

(Hey, wait a minute.  He does work for me.  He works for you, too.  We can fire him.)

“U.S.-China Commission Describes The Multiple Tactics Of A Rogue Nation Whose Policies Have Destroyed The U.S. Economy, And The U.S. Federal Government’s Failed Response”

www.manufacturingnews.com/news/2014/U.S.-China%20Commission-1126141.html

  • Government-owned Chinese companies are investing in the United States, at the behest of state governors and economic development officials.  But those investments might backfire on the United States, the commission warns, by creating “impediments for domestic industries petitioning the federal government for trade enforcement assistance.”

Lately the propaganda — American’s manufacturing strength, China’s weakness, Japan’s recession, Democracy’s inevitability, ad nauseam — has been impressively relentless, designed to succeed by encouraging your complacency.

When I feel like taking a break, I don’t.

Putting it all together

It took me a long time, so you’re not going to understand this in one sitting.

Which is why I am going to post this here so that you can refer back to it as you need too.

IRS Figures:

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

These figures were taken from Table 2 of the IRS Databook Series that you can view by clicking on the following link:

http://www.irs.gov/uac/SOI-Tax-Stats-Numbers-of-Returns-Filed-by-Type-of-Return-IRS-Data-Book-Table-2

You are looking for:

  • Individual
  • Individual Estimated Tax

The total of both of these will give you the chart you see above:

Pay attention to that dip that started in 2002 as I was forced out in 2003 and by the end of this article, you will understand why it is important that you pay attention to that time period.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

As you can see, we still have not reached the peak we had in 2008 no matter the claims about how many jobs have been created by all sides.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

And the self employed people like myself have been absolutely destroyed.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

Notice how the dips recur in all charts.

Keep this in mind about the self employed chart.

Self employed, whether they be at the high end like software developers, or mechanics, plumbers, etc, or at the low end, depend on people with steady pay that make more than it cost to live to fund their self employment.

If people do not have disposable income, self employment will dry up.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

This chart is calculated by subtracting the BLS OES figures from the IRS Individual Tax (1040 based).

Notice how this number went up as jobs were from 2001 – 2006?

Consider that to be an average for unemployment because supposedly times were good then (even though I, a software developer with 3 decades of experience could not buy steady work, and neither could others I have talked too).

Notice how it increased substantially in 2008 and it is still substantially higher than the years from 2001 till 2006.

I believe this is a much better indicator of unemployment than the U-3 or U-6 numbers.

Click to zoom in

Here again we have the dips in the early part of 2000, long before 2008, and in the current crisis, but not as extreme as the others.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

The chart above is created by subtracting the EEO-1 Totals from the IRS Individual Tax numbers as I am looking for a reliable indicator of how many small businesses we have.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

Finally we subtract the IRS Estimated Tax returns from the previous chart to see how many small businesses we have in America.

Notice how these numbers have increased during the times when there were dips in the other numbers.

I was asked today if I had given up looking for work.

In answer to that, I don’t know how the experts on TV can say such a thing.

To give up means you die because you cannot live without income, period.

This is why these small business numbers are increasing.

These are people doing everything they can to survive, and maybe even prosper.

This is why I founded Keep America At Work.

In time I hope to grow it into a technology company.

But for now, I just try to find a way to keep the utilities on and sadly, I’m not doing a good job at it.

Now in the beginning, I asked you to pay attention to the dips in the charts above.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

The chart above shows the Gross Private Domestic Investment portion of the GDP.

See the dips around 2002 and again in 2007?

Yep, those are the years that our businesses of all shapes and sizes quit investing in America, and furthermore, I believe it is the year that they shifted a lot of their production offshore simply because if you look at the previous dips, I believe you will find that it preceded the recessions, and documented the offshoring of different types of companies such as steel mills, leather tanning, etc., etc.

Click to zoom in

Click to zoom in

I changed it so that the dates are the same as the other charts so that it is easier to view the dips and compare to the other charts.

3.1 miles to my shed – do I risk running out of gas or not?

Been working on something I consider important all day, and yesterday which was the 2014 LCA Applications for Temporary Worker Visas.

As we say in Texas, I got er done.

But now I’m wondering if I will have enough gas to get to my shed that I call home, and if so, will I have enough to get me back to town in the morning so I can take a shower.

Needless to say, I’m sick of this ???? where I can’t buy a interview when I humbly, of course, know that I still have the skills to be in the top of my industry.

Yeah, I know.

Quit Whining
