I’m really getting tired of every time I turn on the news…, any news…, fake or not…, and I hear people bemoaning the unemployment rates.
“We lost 15 million jobs last month!”
“The unemployment rate is at 14.7%!”
“The unemployment rate could go as high as 20% or even 25%!”
“We haven’t seen unemployment rates approaching these levels since The Great Depression!”
YOU DON’T SAY?!
WE INTENTIONALLY SHUT OUR ECONOMY DOWN…, WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT?!
The real news would be if the unemployment rates didn’t skyrocket!
And as if President Trump’s economic policies are somehow responsible for this.
As The President likes to remind everyone…, before this voluntary shut down, our economy had been the BEST EVER in US history, and unemployment rates had been at historic, all-time, lows.
Again…, our government chose to shut down our economy for the sake of health considerations pertaining to the coronavirus.
This was not a case of failed economic policies, as in the case of the Obama administration, for example.
These reporters all act like they’re passing along some great breaking news they skillfully unearthed.
Please, do us all a favor, and go ahead and report the numbers…, but please spare us the over-dramatization, and put the situation in the proper and honest perspective.
I value your feedback and I’d love to hear from you!
