Democrats want unemployment

The number of Americans holding jobs are at a record of 155,576,000.

"U.S. employers kept up a brisk hiring pace in June by adding 213,000 jobs in a sign of confidence despite the start of a potentially punishing trade war with China," the Associated Press reported this morning.

Democrats denounced this because they need financial misery to attain power.

"June jobs numbers show what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty and an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent," Nancy Pelosi said.

"Six months after receiving their windfall from the GOP tax scam for the rich, Corporate America is on track to spend $1 trillion on dividends and stock buybacks, while announcing tens of thousands of layoffs, refusing to give workers a raise and raising costs for families. Meanwhile, hard-working farmers, factory workers and families across the nation are reeling from retaliatory tariffs and trade uncertainty. America should be taking strong, smart and strategic action against unfair trade policies, not recklessly antagonizing our allies and inviting retaliation against the men and women of American farming and manufacturing.

"The American people deserve so much better than the raw deal they are getting from the cynical Republican special interest agenda. Democrats know that the American people deserve A Better Deal, with Better Jobs, Better Wages and a Better Future. Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation."

I get that she is a senile windbag who barely seems to know what year it is, but this was a press statement written by one of her flunkies. The party clings to the rhetoric and prophecies of doom from the 1990s that President Trump finally proved wrong.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act boosted the wages and benefits of at least 6 million workers as companies seemed to be in a competition to pass out bonuses.

The tax cuts meant smaller deductions, which meant take-home paychecks (direct deposits, these days) increased, which was the equivalent of a pay raise.

"Nancy Pelosi, once again, reminds Americans how out-of-touch she is. Economy adds 200,000+ jobs, wages are up and Hispanic unemployment is at a record low…and Nancy slams the jobs report?" Ronna McDaniel, head of the RNC, tweeted.

The Democrats have been out of touch for two centuries. The reason we notice it now is because they are out of power.

Never let them back in.

  1. Trump is killing them dead. If he loses in 18 and 20 America deserves what it gets and will not be salvageable, forever after. They know this and see it as a fight to the death. Normally, they would patiently await their next opportunity for Constitutional arson but the court is in danger, economic ruin is now far away, 8 years of contempt and failure will take a long time to fade among those living in the states that matter. Obama never arrived at the Finland Station Heaven sent as he seemed at the time.
    There is some hope in a trade war, but it is unlikely to get out of hand. Muleler has not delivered the milk as promised. Desperate times, desperate measures, lie and lie a lot, then violence.

  2. Potentially punishinget trade war with China? Oh good grief these media writers are so hysterically stupid and anti Trump how can they be taken seriously? Are they sure it's not the first step toward global thermonuclear war and the end of life on earth?

    1. Egg Zackly! They view "1984" as a Field Manual, not a cautionary tale.

    2. Well boys, we’re woke. The speech in my old hometown, Great Falls MT, last night was plenty more proof of that. Pocahontas DNA test and Maxine Waters’ IQ? Hahahaha! Mr. T is relentless in his personal attacks. I love this man to death.

  5. The reason we notice now is the explosion of the internet’s fake news busting power, Don’s blog among them.

  6. Seeing them so desperate just makes me feel good. That, and the Maxine Waters Republicans, Kristol, Will etc. are coming unglued. I can't help but laugh several times a day now.

  7. It's not that Dems want unemployment. They just want more poetry.

    1. CM, I’m assuming you meant poverty, but hey, poetry works just fine for me!

    2. I was thinking of Nancy's dream that the unemployed would have more time to wax poetic. A true cultural rebirth made possible by a permanent stagnant economy.

    3. Hmmm. Unemployed. More time. Waxing poetic. Cultural rebirth. Sounds like the blues is going to get a 21st century makeover. Why would the Democrat Party want to sing the blues? - Elric

    4. Hahaha you guys! Funny stuff. Yes, the unemployed could just sit around all day and come up with more classics like:

      There once was a pirate named Yates
      Who loved to rumba on roller skates
      He slipped on his cutlass
      Which rendered him nutless
      Now he ain’t worth a sh— on dates

      Delete
    5. Now that the sh-- has hit the Fran (so to speak), I wonder if Nancy has any regrets about what she considers the ideal poetic milieu.

  8. There’s just no let up for the Democrats, pucker-factor wise.

  9. The Democrat message seems to be:

    "So what if you got a raise, your kids got a job, and your taxes went down.

    Corporations are making money again. That means somebody, somewhere, is making a lot more money than you AND THAT'S GOTTA STOP!!!"

  10. Are they actually going to run on "Jobs and paychecks are bad"?

    Oh GOD, please, DO IT!

    1. David, Lord willing, 10 years from now we’ll be able to look back at this time as the time that the Democrat Party fell apart. There will be a Socialist party and remnants of a Dem party, but neither will move the needle that much for voters. Mr. T is a force of nature, like a derecho or something. This will be his finest achievement domestically. Keep praying for his safety, and let’s keep this Train rollin!
