Let's see where those numbers are in a month, numb nuts.

The numbers I pulled out of my ass said high 40%ile in late June realy July for this year.

Does he sincerely not understand these aren't new jobs - these are people returning to jobs after layoffs?
 
2020-07-02 11:57:58 AM  
By "added" he means they went back to work after he farked up the initial pandemic response.

Is he counting hit-jobs on U.S. soldiers and hand jobs to Putin?

I was not aware Trump played for the Redskins.

Last month was 40 million unemployed so unless we got +20 million jobs in the last month, I call BS subby.

And since the pandemic is getting a lot worse, 40 million unemployed will be nothing in a month or two.

I can't wait for the GOP to use these numbers as an excuse not to extend increased unemployment benefits and/or stimulus checks.

Then in a month or two we can truly see how much damage that does.

Technically "historic job numbers" is correct.  They're just historically low.
 
2020-07-02 12:06:33 PM  
Nevermind that shiat!

Trump where is the historically and rapidly flattened curve? The US overall curve has a big new Trump Hump. You built that!

How much does Putin take off your debts for each death? $1,000 Rubles?

Der...  But honestly, as a Fark Lib, I agree that being upset about last months unemployment rate of 20% of whatever was kind of insane. Pay people to stay home... I don't see why we counted them as "unemployed".
Honestly the federal government probably could have counted those on temporary assistance in a special category and said, "look we saved all these people from poverty!". I wonder if the President let it go to 20% so he could gloat about it going down to 10%.

Fark Libs: "Donald Trump is straight up murdering people and destroying our economy"

Also Fark Libs: "The Dems shouldn't do anything at all, Sun Tzu once said don't interrupt your enemy when he's making a mistake"

So in that instance BSAB.  Trump for legitimately farking shiat up and causing people to die, and the Dems for making a political calculation that if those deaths mean that a Dem gets elected then it's worth it.

Not only BSAB but the entire farking system is B.

Trump turned the US economy into an engine of genocide during this ongoing pandemic.

Reopening to get businesses going, has killed thousands of Americans. The folks demanding to reopen, such as Larry Kudlow, deserve to face consequences for spreading the virus. (Attorney General/Attorney Gangster Bill Barr said spreading Covid-19 is terrorism).

The job that ought to be hiring: contact tracing. Trump won't go for that because less death means less of Putin's money in his pocket.

It's not Trump's fault that everyone is unemployed.
It is Trump's fault that his only reaction to every catastrophe is to try and spin it into some kind of personal "win."
Almost half of voters helped elect a mobbed-up con man whose only skill is bullsh*tting.
He didn't cause the pandemic, he didn't cause the massive unemployment but all he's done is cover his eyes and chant "I AM GREAT" for the past 4 months. But you know this and are just here to sow dissent. Good job.

Trump, Barr, Kudlow, every governor that opened too soon and all the state representative that voted to open things up, every judge that said that masks orders/shutdowns were unconstitutional and every fox news host should be under arrest for bioterrorism and spend a decade in jail minimum.

/Biden needs to not be nice to nazis and terrorists and crush them like the Yall-Qaeda they are.
 
2020-07-02 12:16:47 PM  
It's not like we're going into the 3rd month of people missing rent/mortgage payments, eviction moratoriums are ending, the $600 additional unemployment is ending in less than a month, and COVID is resurging.

Wait, all of those things are happening?

Nothing. These were jobs just paused.

Them you should applaud high unemployment as that means more people are staying home. In fact, the higher the unemployment, the better (in the short term), right? You want hair salons and massage parlors open or not? Open: more dead, closed: more unemployment. Choose wisely.

And since the pandemic is getting a lot worse, 40 million unemployed will be nothing in a month or two.


I'm guessing a fair amount of those mixed in with that number are people who lost their jobs in early march and fell off the unemployment rolls in June.

So you want more businesses to close and more people to stay home and be counted as unemployed? Higher unemployment is good? The higher the better?

Unemployed is better than dead.

More Americans will be available to build guillotines.

Canada's unemployment went up 8 points.  US unemployment went up 8 points.  What did Trump gain from all those additional deaths?
 
2020-07-02 12:44:42 PM  
What's infuriating about the economics reporting is that the media generally takes that jobs number and just publishes that. "Jobs up! 4 million back to work, 10% more growth than last month, we've never seen it before!"

What they should be reporting is our current position relative to pre-crisis levels. If we lost 20 million jobs total, and we gained back 4 million this last month, should we say "20% of the jobs lost during this crisis have returned"? Or that we're at -80%?

The way this gets talked about you'd think they're shoveling money out of helicopters. And, ok, that is going on, but we're still in a tremendous hole.
