    US adds 4.8 million jobs in June and UE drops to 11.1%

    While this is good news, the way Congressional Republicans are talking about this it is a $100k job for every man woman and child and it is all thanks to Donald Trump. What did Donald Trump do? Nobody knows.

    I'm trying to envision a scenario where Obama spikes the football on 11.1% unemployment after inheriting a 4.7% UE rate 3.5 years earlier.

    And wouldn't you know it? Trump just so happens to be the hospitality industry. Purely coincidental I'm sure.

    If we all want to see what a shitshow will look like, wait til CARES unemployement benefits expire in a few weeks. That's probably what is got Trump nervous. He thought the economy would be back by now and it isn't.

    If they pass HEROES we'll be looking at a budget deficit of over $7 trillion. Fun!

    He’s running the government like he runs a Trump business. Exactly what he was voted in to do.

    After a devastating turnout at his rally, Trump seems to think he should send out another round of bribe money, aka another stimulus check, in order to raise his numbers. Some in his administration, however, feel that bribing the middle class goes against the time-honored Republican tradition of only bribing the top earners via tax cuts. Others felt that, instead of focusing on human beings, he should instead focus on deregulation of corporations while he still had the power to do so.

    Im assuming that the Raiders are the democrats and the Redskins are the Repubs because of their racist name.

    Definitely Trump's 39% favorability ratings - because Wall Street wants Trump in the WH

    Every online business was allowed to fulfil orders. If you have a physical store but no online order system - you deserve to go out of business

    Amazing what wealth you can amass when the governments force almost all of your competition to shut down while you can still operate.
