Unemployment Blahs for April 2016 May 7, 2016

Reports of the slowdown of the economy were corroborated by the employment data released by  the BLS yesterday. As you can see from the chart, there’s a downtick in the data. We’ll see if that continues over the next few months. In any case, the best-case scenario is that we’re continuing the unnecessarily long, slow slog back to normalcy.

So thanks for that, Mr. President.

Yea. And with close to half of our population on the government dole, and REAL unemployment at 35-40%, we are so freakin’ in trouble.

But, look on the bright side. We can kick the can down the road and leave this mess for our kids and grandkids. Yay!! That should be a wake-up call for entitlement-crazed millennials.
