I Got Nothing Going On And It Hot Outside And There’s A Lot Of Shit Going On!

I could have written, “Bored”, but I’ve done that a few times. I like to be original.

Or at least try to wait until you forgot the last time I used the joke.

I have two windows with tabs open. I’ll do the stupid one first and then probably get tired. Let’s see what happens!

Let’s start with why I decided to do this.
I saw a bunch of stories about how we have Full Employment!!!!!!!! so it’s going to be hard to fill new jobs!

Roto-Reuters sez

Job growth has decelerated from the 181,000 monthly average over the past 12 months as the labor market nears full employment. There is growing anecdotal evidence of companies struggling to find qualified workers. (emphasis me V)

Full Employment!!!!!!  but then they write this

But the labor force participation rate, or the share of working-age Americans who are employed or at least looking for a job, fell two-tenths of a percentage point to 62.7 percent. (that’s me again)

Doesn’t that pretty much disprove the previous paragraph?

Unless they’re saying that these non-labor-participators are ‘unqualified’ and thus, that’s the New Normal!. I don’t like that idea. And not where I thought this was going when I started. I had two links of “Full Employment!!!!!!” and one of “low labor participation” to comment on how they’re idiots.

But now I think they’re being evil.

Let’s see if the L.A. Times does the same thing.

Here are the highlights from the report released by the Labor Department on Friday.

The economy added 138,000 net new jobs, well below expectations.
The unemployment rate declined to 4.3%, its lowest level since 2001.
Wage growth slowed a bit, with average hourly earnings up 4 cents.
“There’s very little about the report that you can look to and draw a positive from,”…

But after 80 straight months of job growth, economists said the labor market is limited in how much more it can expand. The U.S. is nearing full employment, meaning just about all the workers who want a job have one…

No, we’re not nearing “full employment”,

The participation rate has been trending down since the late 1990s as baby boomers retired, but fell off sharply during and after the Great Recession (under Obama, but let’s obfuscate that V) discouraged unemployed Americans gave up looking for jobs. It has hovered near a four-decade low since 2013.

So they obviously know the labor participation rate is in the shitter but they’re avoiding discussing it.



The number not in the workforce is 94,983,000, at the tone, the US Pop will be 325,162,910 BONGGGGGG!!!!!

That’s 29% not in the labor force, and apparently deemed by our fine lefty betters as being not “qualified”

So the whole Full Employment!!!!!! is not just stupid, or maybe not even stupid, but apparently some nefarious, leftist, deal that excuses these people from working. Probably something to do with welfare, food stamps and global worming.
Hanlon fails again!

We’ll have to update Hanlon, there’s already a Veeshir’s Law on Politicians, If you like a politician you’ve been successfully conned

Hmmmm….How about a Veeshir’s Revision on Hanlon’s Law that states: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity unless you’re dealing with a lefty, then it’s surely malice and probably stupidity. ?


I don’t feel like doing any more, so let’s do a,”Rand Paul is doing his job!” link and then hit “Publish”.

“You need to make sure that your viewers know that most of [climate scientists’] models has been wrong,” Paul said. “They adjust it every year because they haven’t been good at predicting things.”

Tapper throws in some lies, but I don’t feel like quoting Tapper, going to Watt’s Up With That and finding links to NASA, NOAA, British Met and even East Anglia to show they’re lies. That really bores me.
