Unemployment

-- by Dave Johnson

Hey people, the government hired a bunch of people last month -- just about the same number as the "huge drop in the number of jobs lost."

The economy still isn't functioning -- the government is stepping in and helping.

And even with that losing over 500,000 jobs in a single month is a disaster. It just isn't as bad as all those months as have been losing over 600,000. That's all.

The 1920-1921 Depression was a more severe contraction than 1929 or 2008-2009. In response government slashed spending over 50%. Do you know what the results were?

This is probably a family-friendly site so I'll just say: Bullcrackers.
