Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-32: Headlines: Unemployment Scam

Yesterday Drudge’s leading link went to an article at Gallup about unemployment Titled “The Big Lie:  5.6% Unemployment.”

The number is deceptive.  It does not reflect the real condition of the economy.

Gallup explained.  Some of the unemployed that are not counted:
    If you are hopelessly out of work and have stopped looking
    You are out of work and got a few dollars for a short task like mowing a lawn
    You can only find a part time, low paying job and are working it

My question would be has it always been this way or were the standards changed recently.  If changed, by whom and on whose authority? 

Who proclaims this as being good news?  The administration of course, because they want to look good.  The media goes along because they also want the administration to look good.  They assume, like Gruber on Obamacare, that we are too stupid to notice the lie.

Are we?
