The jobs numbers came out on Friday. They were supposed to show that ol’ Joe Biden would “create” some half million new jobs. Alas, he was again, woefully short. Only 210,000 jobs were created. Though because of the 7.5 million unemployed people, only about 2.5 million of them were actually looking for work, the unemployment rate dropped to 4.2%.
That means there are now five million Americans content to sit on the couch and watch Oprah.
That’s a very frightening thought if you ask me. We have like 2,500 ships sitting off the coast of California, with all sorts of cargo waiting to be delivered to stores in time for Christmas shopping, and no truckers willing to take up the challenge. Why? Well, two reasons. First is the fact that they are part of the governmental mandate (which has been ruled illegal) that they need to get vaccinated before they can work, and a lot of them have chosen not to do that. Second, the price of fuel is through the roof.
How bad is it? Well, the DNC sent out a tweet congratulating Joe Biden on the fact that over the past week “he” lowered the gas prices by a whopping TWO CENTS! What they don’t say is that the average price of gas in this country was $2.17 a gallon a year ago under Donald Trump. Today, nationally, it’s $3.40. I’m not very good at math, but that seems like a 56.7% increase in just 12 months.
And just what was Joe Biden’s explanation? That the economy is STRONG! Yessiree Bob! We are well on our way back! Of course, inflation is now at 7%, looking to go to 10% next year, and more if we have a recession. Democrats aren’t wanting to have either Biden or Harris run in 2024, but instead are bringing up the name of another retread, Pete Buttigieg as their candidate. Now, most people in South Bend, Indiana, where he was mayor, don’t have many good things to say about him. And of course, he was one of the ones that had to back out of the 2020 race because otherwise Bernie Sanders would beat Biden, and go on to lose to Trump in the general election.
So, we amble along with the weakest jobs performance numbers in 11 months (last December we actually lost about 200,000 jobs). And Biden thinks he has something to celebrate. The Dow Jones Average dropped about 60 points on the news, bringing it down about 700 points for the week. That’s certainly reason to celebrate!
I think America has realized that unless Joe Biden pulls our of the steep nose dive he’s been in for 11 months, he’s in major trouble come next November, if he makes it that long. You can’t go one day without getting video of him stumbling and bumbling and trying to lie his way through questions with the press. And K-baby Harris isn’t much help. She can barely get herself dressed in the morning.
I guess we can all be thankful a presidential term is only four years, huh?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
