I know I have a connection to a local employment agency and they have more jobs than they can find people for! Good jobs, too! There was just posted one for an electrican at $26 + benefits. I was tempted to take it myself.
I have had several approach me too, but they are in Northern VA, and I cant drive that far any more with my back as bad as it is again.

Capitalism 2.0: The Fed is now as important to the economy as the consumer.

I hope we don't fuck this up.
The Fed has always been important to the economy, doofus, as it issues our currency and does so to stabilize the currency and to lower unemployment as it says in its charter as modified by Congress.

SMGH thought you were a stock trader or sumpin
If you think the Feds actions since the Great Recession is acceptable, you need to think again.

DISCLAIMER: CRITICISM OF THE FED IS IN NO WAY ALSO A CRITICISM OF YOUR ORANGE MESSIAH.

One thing is apparent, the Fed’s and our corrupt central government’s main goal is enriching and protecting the extreme wealthy.
What do we expect when we allow for a political system that incentivizes politicians to sell their soul for the sake of re-election?
Kind of like they are doing now to a Marxist organization like BLM.

Very true. I suspect most Americans are unaware of this fraud being perpetrated on them.

Last month(May) was a loss of 3 million jobs this month(June) is a 5 million gain which still leaves UE over 10%

Good news that people got their jobs back, but these are not new jobs or added growth. Very happy that people got back to work.
So the unemployment is down to 11%, which may be temporary: ...
Yesterday the new coronavirus cases jumped to its highest daily rate: 50,000

And jobless claims went up in June:

So we've got a real mixed bag.
I'm hoping for the best but this may be a temporary bump unless the whole country can flatten that damn curve and keep businesses open.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he supports another round of direct payments to Americans — and that he would support bigger payments than the Democrats.
“I do. I support it. But it has to be done properly,” Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network’s Blake Berman.“I support actually larger numbers than the Democrats.”
Funny, I never thought Trump would go from RINO to full on socialist.

Funny, people sick and tired of getting arrested for driving while black, or walking home while black, or having a cop's knee in their neck until they're dead are suddenly Marxists. You wouldn't know a Marxist if one walked up and slapped you across your face.

BLM says openly they are trained Marxists.

This is how discourse takes place in America. For example, I’m critical of Ears, for that I’m called a racist and worse. Now I’m very much opposed to Dumb Don, for that I’m called a commie traitor.

It’s really fucked up.

By November, the economy will be roaring once again, and unemployment will be below 5%.


U.S. private payrolls increased by 2.369 million in June, the ADP National Employment Report showed on Wednesday.
Data for May was revised up to show a 3.065 million rise in payrolls, instead of the previous estimate of a 2.76 decline.


The U.S. economy added 4.8 million jobs in June and the unemployment rate fell to 11.1 percent, both better than expected.
The increase in the ranks of employed workers shows that companies ramped up hiring as the economy reopened and consumers came back to stores, restaurants, and other businesses that had been shuttered in March and April.
Job growth was strong in restaurants and bars, reflecting the reopening of those establishments across the country, which added 1.5 million jobs, the Labor Department said Thursday. But employment remains 3.1 million below February’s level, the month before the pandemic hit the U.S. economy.


So employment is almost aback to pre-pandemic levels, with only another 3 million to go.

Happy Days are here again!
I love to see who the dumbest MF imbeciles are on the board by disliking this....................BAWWWHAHA

Do you mean purple lips???.lolol
Actually you are very reasonable here. Don't agree with everything, but that's ok. Reasonable is the key

You gotta go with your conscious and tell anyone politely to Foff. You got that handled. So you piss off the loons on each side, that means you're right.

I love that people are getting back to work, and I'm tired of wearing a damn mask.

It will be the GOP run states that (and well CA) screwed the opening up and is causing a shutdown of bars again.

I say let them all get it, the sooner the better, the college kids are having covid parties.
they get whatever they deserve.

So do the people that go to tramps rallies. I am sick and tired of being sorry for people that go to his rallies and don't wear masks.

I don’t care what the loons think. They are dupes for the establishment, but don’t know it.

When I strongly disagreed with Dumb Don’s cold blooded murder of the Iranian general, the righties here who had agreed with my criticism of O, attacked me like I was some kind of radical leftist.

It’s all rather amusing.
