    So far this thread has been about making unsubstantiated and hyperbolic claims. I was adding mine.

    I just double checked- the count has gone up to 200 million dead from Republicans.

    Oh you poor little authoritarian snowflake. I asked who has 'defended communism' on this board. Specifically who in this thread has?

    Names.

    Not complicated.

    The dead from Stalin and Mao, which I assume is the bulk of the 94 number, are not unsubstantiated or hyperbolic.

    That doesn't solve frictional or structural unemployment. It doesn't matter what the wages are, Except under a command economy, there will always be a lag between job search and new job, and a mismatch between skills available and demanded. Insurance has nothing to do with it.

    A smoother economy would pay labor enough to buy private forms of unemployment insurance.

    Again, you have no clue as you vague speak. What is a smooth economy?

    Reality: Conservative policy never works, destroys the country, wrecks the economy, unbalances the budget, and gets people killed.
    You: But Communism!

    And? That's still unemployed. You said no unemployment.

    You are not a very creative person. You just plagiarize what other people write, so you let others do the thinking for you.

    So lazy.
