Boned

Posted: May 6, 2016 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah, Obama's Fault, PEBKAC, We're boned

94,044,000 Americans are not in the work force.

 

There are 320 million (or so) Americans in total.

That means nearly a third of all Americans are done looking for work.

 

Take out the people under 20 and over 70 and you have about 200 million.

Taking out 94 million you get 100+million people working to support the other 200+ million.

Taking out the many underemployed folks who are on food stamps and other gov’t programs and the numbers get even worse.

What can’t go on, won’t. There is no way that less than 1/3 can support the other 2/3s in any sort of decent standard of living.

Can soup lines be far behind?

As an aside, I added the ‘We’re Boned’ category a couple days ago because of how things are going but even I didn’t think I’d use it so soon.

Unexpectedly!

    Looks like I’m not the only one whose cynicism is hopelessly optimistic. 😛
