Welcome to RobertBeadles.org - the website that gives you, the people, an independent political voice. Following Robert's withdrawal from the CD-11 campaign in California, we received a lot of requests for help in getting the voice of the people heard. So, we're turning this site over to you, the citizen journalist.

We ask that all citizen journalists agree to our terms and refrain from using profanity or hate speech. This site is moderated and each view or opinion expressed here is that of the author and not of this website's owner or staff. Personal responsibility is one of the principals on which our great country was founded, and so it is with this website. The bullhorn is yours - have your say now.

New Figures: Unemployment Over 16% – Average Rise of 174%

What a difference a year makes! Wasteful spending by a Democrat controlled Congress is taking away our jobs. According to figures just released by the CA Employment Development Department, over 300 thousand people are officially listed as unemployed as of November 21st, 2009 in the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara and San Joaquin. This represents a jump up from 174,900 in October of 2008, an average increase of 173.9%.

Alarmingly, San Joaquin county is the worst hit, with a rate of 16.1%.

If these figures aren’t startling enough, the November 2009 figures do not include individuals who have already used up their unemployment benefits and those who quit looking for a job.  See graphs below…
