Happy Holidays! The Unemployment Rate Rose Again

News

Hark! What's that sound on the rooftop? Could it be sleigh bells? No, it's the nation's unemployment rate, here to bring us holiday cheer! The festive unemployment ratehas received its "Christmas bonus" -- increasing in November to 9.8%, a seven-month high -- while only 39,000 new jobs were created. And most of those jobs were "in the form of temporary help"; in other words, toy-making jobs, which are given only to elf Americans and don't provide benefits. It's cute how the economy is so full of Christmas spirit.


More than 15 million people remained out of work last month, and 6.3 million of them have been unemployed for six months or longer. [...]

Analysts generally estimate that the economy needs to add at least 100,000 to 125,000 jobs a month simply to keep up with new entrants to the labor force. So if employers keep hiring at the current pace, it will not help reduce the unemployment rate for some time.

But, you say, colleges don't graduate students every month of the year. How could the economy need that many jobs every month? Why, because all the good girls and boys are going to work to save their families! And you know what they say: only a child with coal in her lung is safe from receiving coal in her stocking.

Happy Hanukkah. [NYT]

No matter how many time we remind Mr. P90X that Jesus fed the poor for fucking free, he still lives in the world of Mean Jesus, who rips the loaves and fishes from the hands of starving kiddies. Mean Jesus says blame their parents for being poors and not being able to buy them "brown paper bag" lunches.

Hillary Clinton spoke Monday at the Elly Awards in New York, and she had something to say about Donald Trump's vicious plan to see how many Hispanic Mexican babies he can hurt before Democrats cry uncle and fund his fucking wall. Here is some transcript and a video, lovingly provided by Daily Kos, and after that we have thoughts:
