The Miracle of the Trump Economy

(H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D)

As CNBC tells us, “new unemployment applications during each week since mid-March have been at least three times as high as their worst week of the Great Recession.”

Job losses remain ‘enormous’: Coronavirus unemployment claims are worst in history

  • New applications for unemployment benefits totaled 2.3 million last week — the 16th week in a row that claims have exceeded 1 million.
  • In total, nearly 33 million Americans were getting jobless benefits as of June 20, about five times the peak during the Great Recession.
  • Things have improved since new claims peaked in late March, but spiking coronavirus infections and expiring federal aid means layoffs could increase.

Maybe people are not out pounding the pavement because the corpses are stacked-up in the hallways, hmmm?

Kill yourselves so Betsy Devos can have another boat, what kind of monsters are you?

Are you tired of all the winning, yet?

    Maybe people are not out pounding the pavement because tthere ain’t no jerbs to be had!

    Seriously, who the fuck is hiring right now? Retail is cratering, restaurants and bars are dead, hiring freezes are in place everywhere in all levels of gubmint from city on up to the Feds. No one is flying, no one is traveling so that entire sector is in a coma.

    Consumers are laid off and broke or hoarding every penny they can in anticipation of being laid off and broke.

    Just what do the GOP thugs like Mango Mussolini and #MoscowMitch expect people to DO???

    (I ask rhetorically because is always comes down to the Goldfinger Protocol with them )

    No, Mr. Bond, I don’t expect you to talk, I expect you to DIE!

    I quit my job (dental hygienist, 7 months from retirement) to avoid going back to what is obviously a hideously risky situation; my husband is immunocompromised so it was an easy decision. I could have hung on and tried to get unemployment benefits but it wasn’t worth it, my old coworkers are working their butts off and doing it all without any mechanical assist in full PPE in a beastly hot and by its nature a crowded office. I’m waiting for the data to eventually show that dentistry is a plague ship for the employees, because it will.

      One recommendation I saw was, See your dentist if you’re having a problem. Postpone a regular cleaning. The virus can hang in the air from a previous patient. Those little rooms look really dangerous right now.

    By Sept 30th, how many millions do you suppose will be homeless? Robert Reich suggests as many as 20 M, but I’ma gonna say more; WAY more. We are facing a complete and total Societal breakdown, where the main fight will be simply to survive, forget about your petty, partisan politics.

    Drive the country into total Chaos, and you won’t have to worry about losing any more elections. Or the public seeing your financial records, or being investigated/arrested for financial fraud, hell none of that will matter.

    And I like how he keeps referring to the 2nd A in his tweets lately; he NEVER lets go of THAT dog-whistle.

    I’m foreseeing about a tenth of the US population being placed under this, or a similarly-stressful situation, which is the original definition of “to decimate,” or reduce by a tenth. But somehow the meaning got changed to “reduced TO a tenth.”
