I went to see what the Freepers are up to today...

...and typed "free r..." on the url line, and Google auto-completed "free reptiles"...

Who says Google is stupid?

Freepers... a different universe...

I just dipped my toe in at my least-favorite RWNJ site.
Here's a comment posted there.

"I tuned in briefly to hear the debate. But there was no debate. Instead, there was a two-against-one pile on, Wallace and Biden vs. Trump. Biden was obviously hopped up on something and kept interrupting Trump during Trump's allotted time to speak, with no censure from Wallace, who did plenty of his own interrupting of Trump. Trump was never given, as far as I could see, any opportunity to make his reasoned, logical reply to questions--he was constantly either being walked on, interrupted, or taken to task by Wallace. It was a sleazy parody of a debate."

trump says we can't have Biden as our President....

I know that it's all bluster for his idiot fans, but for a President - even a shithead like trump - to suggest this kind of thing is unheard of. And dangerous. He's planting poisoned seeds in the minds of the gullible.

"At a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday, Trump spoke for over 90 minutes.
In addition to vowing that he will fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and accusations that Biden has performance-enhancing drugs injected in his ass, Trump threatened to call off the election by banning Biden from running."
“You can’t have this guy as your president,”
“You can’t have — maybe I’ll sign an executive order, you cannot have him as your president,” Trump argued as his supporters cheered."

Help me out... numbers, and indeed business.... is not my strong area...

What IS the actual, real, honest to god, unemployment rate right now?

The BLS says 8.4% last month. That's U-3. U-6 is 14.2 (I understand what U-3 and U-6 is.)

Then I read this piece from Forbes with a lot of numbers that tell me that 8.4% is low. And maybe 14.2 is low, too. I hate it when people say the BLS is lying. That's tinfoil hat stuff. But ... WTF?

Did the economy and employment turn UP? How? Where is unemployment now, and where is it headed?
