hes a lakota indian

todays radio news says povery rate is only one point past the 1994 rate -i say they li

If the BLS was honest they would have taken the number of unemployed Indians living on these nine reservations and added them to the 14,400 people looking for a job. On nearly every Indian reservation in South Dakota the unemployment rate is 50 percent and higher.

If there are 20,000 unemployed Native Americans living on the nine reservations, that brings the total of unemployed in South Dakota to 34,400. This new figure would surely skewer the false unemployment figures compiled by the state. In reality, there are closer to 40,000 unemployed Native Americans residing in South Dakota. Why are these unemployed Indians not counted? Aren't they also citizens of South Dakota?

The No BS Guide To The Upcoming Jill Stein Recount

It's almost like they have something to hide.

With one Jill Stein-led recount effort already underway in Wisconsin and additional recounts pending in Michigan and Pennsylvania, supporters of Donald Trump are now taking legal action to stop what they say is a baseless attempt to smear their candidate.

In Pennsylvania, Trump himself has joined up with the local Republican Party to block Jill Stein's request for a recount.

In Wisconsin, Trump Super PACS are doing the dirty work and have asked a federal judge to stop what they say is a violation of due process rights.
