'So give me a breath of your last cigarette, As we travel the world over goin' deeper in debt ....'We mentioned earlier this morning that there are some troubles in the world economy -- and that includes us, in the America part of Earth. Well, uhh, it's really awful. Remember that 1,000-point drop in the Dow blamed on robots or astrology or whatever? Ha ha well now there's a 1,000-point drop for real, it just took a few weeks. On April 26, the DJIA was at 11,239. Today, right now, were at 10,212. The S&P and NASDAQ and Nikkei and Oil and the U.S. Dollar and Platinum and even Ron/Rand Paul's GOLD is down (but just a quarter-percent, compared to nearly 2% this morning on the major U.S. markets). How does this affect "Main Street," you ask? Main Street is boarded up and closed down. Unemployment is, somehow, even higher now than it was three months ago.


AP reports:

The number of people filing new claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week by the largest amount in three months. The surge is evidence of how volatile the job market remains, even as the economy grows.

Applications for unemployment benefits rose to 471,000 last week, up by 25,000 from the previous week, the Labor Department said Thursday. It was the first increase in five weeks and the biggest jump since a gain of 40,000 in February.

Meanwhile, the Democrats just announced they've got the 60 Senate votes for financial reform. Is this good? Is this bad? (For the economy.) Eventually, it's good, right? If there's still an "eventually." (What we mean is, how much can you financially reform the exchange of handjobs for hobo beans?)

Jesse Kelly, the failed Arizona congressional candidate who thought he could take Gabby Giffords's former seat with a combination of word salad and support from white supremacists, has landed himself a sweet gig in the wingnuttosphere, where he writes columns for "The Federalist" and recently started a very dumb Youtube channel. This week, his very creative mind brings us a fantasia on America's inevitable slide into socialism, and a vow that unlike lots of sheeple, he won't go down without taking some liberal scalps. He insists he means that metaphorically, which is why he begins by a detailed description of taking a human scalp:
