    How on earth is this unexpected? Why is it always unexpected by the experts? And since it is unexpected by these people, how can they claim to still be experts after being wrong so many times?

    Becuase it contridicts Barry's narative that 'jobs are being created' by his insane and reckless policies.

    They have to say they didn't see it coming.

    Are you saying the Easter Bunny is "far-fetched?"

    :eek:


    I cannot wait to see the numbers in June, when all the recent school grads cannot find a job because employers don't wanna hire because they don't yet understand WTF the Gov't is gonna ask for next.

    The numbers get based on the US Census bureau surveying households. It is an estimate. So if your data collection reflects too high one week it could just as easily go the opposite way the next time. It would be better to simply take the number of claimants on unemployment and do a survey of job seekers, but not receiving benefits. My take is, they WANT to be able to manipulate the results.

    Is there a democratic plan?

    If there is, better look for plan B.
