April Indiana Employment Report

From Indiana in email today:

INDIANAPOLIS (May 18, 2018) – Indiana’s unemployment rate stands at 3.2 percent for April and remains lower than the national rate of 3.9 percent. With the exception of one month when it was equal (October 2014), Indiana’s unemployment rate now has been below the U.S. rate for more than four years. The monthly unemployment rate is a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicator that reflects the number of unemployed people seeking employment within the prior four weeks as a percentage of the labor force.

Indiana’s labor force had a net increase of 11,655 over the previous month. This was a result of a 737 increase in unemployed residents and an increase of 10,918 employed residents. Indiana’s total labor force, which includes both Hoosiers employed and those seeking employment, stands at 3.33 million, and the state’s 64.0 percent labor force participation rate remains above the national rate of 62.8 percent.

In addition, Indiana’s initial unemployment insurance claims continue to be at historical lows.

Political Correctness, a definition

Twelve CFL bulbs failed in six months while only one incandescent bulb failed in the same period.

“political correctness” – the conscious and deliberate ignorance of clear dangers to our communities and nation to appease irrational and abusive minority political influences.

Examples –

  1. Demand that folded florescent light bulbs be legislated to replace all incandescent light bulbs “to save energy and the environment” even though folded florescent “CFL” bulbs use more energy to produce and use than incandescent, create a very serious health hazard in residential applications, and create a huge environmental problem for disposal.
  2. Demand that old American citizens restricted to wheel chairs be strip searched as as if they are probably terrorists while 20-year old Muslim “women” (or men, you can’t tell) whose identity are concealed from head to toe in a Hajib are exempt from any search “due to religious reasons” and can carry any weapons they wish, unhindered and unchallenged, onto the same airline.
  3. Demand that Republican politicians that are removing corruption, poverty, unemployment, and security threats be defrauded of their God-given individual liberties guaranteed by the US Constitution, witch hunt “investigations” be created and prolonged over fabricated lies to encumber their good work, while Democrats known to have committed and known to be currently engaging in multiple and extreme crimes against America and all humankind cannot be challenged for their many murders, treasons, human trafficking (kidnapping and enslaving) children to sexually abuse them, and massive financial criminal activities.

There are many more examples available, but you get the idea.


Indiana Attorney General will defend Indiana women’s rights

Justice is a Woman

Do women in Indiana who have chosen to have an abortion have a right to receive proper medical care, and if that care injured them, a right to sue the person who botched their abortion to be made whole? Indiana Law says they do. The ACLU says they don’t.

All citizens have a right to expect ALL medical care is proper and to the current state of the art, and that includes the right to report those who harm them with improper treatments.

In most types of medical treatment a person can ask around and learn who is good and who to avoid, but social stigmas conceal abortioneers from public scrutiny. Women who are considering or who have had an abortion deserve better: they deserve a verifiable resource to evaluate the performance of abortion providers, including a list of which ones cause health complications that harm the woman,  what kind of complications their malpractice causes, and recourse to use that list in suing a derelict abortioneer to be made whole at law.

Of course, the money rich abortion industry opposes enforcement of such protections for women from abuse. It is good to see that our Attorney General has the backbone to protect our citizens.


Today in email from Indiana Atty. General Curtis Hill:

AG Curtis Hill vows to defend the state

Attorney General Curtis Hill issued the following statement today pertaining to comments made by three of Indiana’s 91 elected prosecuting attorneys in regard to Indiana Senate Enrolled Act 340:

“The Marion County, Monroe County and Lake County prosecutors have issued a statement apparently stating they will not defend the state in a lawsuit in which they have been named as defendants – namely, the recent filing of a constitutional challenge of the Indiana law requiring practitioners to report complications resulting from abortions.

“To their credit, my friends and former colleagues are right. They will not defend the state. I will.

“While prosecutors Curry, Gaul and Carter share the opinion that this case should not be defended, they also share no authority to make that call. Mr. Curry’s ‘directive’ to me to concede the constitutionality of an Indiana statute has zero force or effect.

“I am well aware of the proper role of the prosecuting attorney as well as my responsibilities as Attorney General, and part of my responsibility is the defense of the constitutionality of legislative acts of the Indiana General Assembly that have been signed into law by the Governor.

“The protestations of Mr. Curry and the other prosecutors regarding their being drawn into this type of litigation might find a more sympathetic ear with the plaintiff, the ACLU, which chose these three ‘defendants’ who, if they had the authority, would concede the case. How convenient and disingenuous.

“If these three prosecutors want out of this case, then they can ask their friends at the ACLU to dismiss them out. As for the defense of the State of Indiana and the decisions on how to proceed in this case, I will make that call.”
