I’m sure that there are many people in the readership of this newspaper who can answer some of my questions.
Yes, I admit I don’t believe that I know everything. For instance, is gravity consistent or does it account for the shape of the planet? I know that Earth revolves at more than 1,000 mph. Given this, the centrifugal force at the equator must be excessive, so why do we weigh the same at the poles? It would seem to me, that at one spot or another, there should be a huge difference in our weight.
Another question would be, how do the employment numbers work? For instance, one week a person can be counted as unemployed, but when he stops looking for work he is no longer counted, so what has changed? He is still unemployed, so who determines he is no longer to be counted? These so-called “facts” should be challenged by the unemployed and the underemployed.
When the talking heads on broadcast news stand up and tell us how our nation’s condition is improving, because the unemployment numbers continue to drop, shouldn’t they have to admit that a large number of people have quit searching for employment? It seems to me that even though these people are no longer searching for work, they are still unemployed.
Please tell me why I should believe anything our government tells us?
