There is only one solution…


Oh goody,

According to the payroll giant’s latest survey, private employers added 119,000 jobs in April. Economists had been expecting a gain of around 150,000. ADP also cut its March employment figure to 131,000 from the 158,000 reported a month ago…

Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, which helps compile the report, said: “Job growth appears to be slowing in response to very significant fiscal headwinds. Tax increases and government spending cuts are beginning to hit the job market. Job growth has slowed across all industries and most significantly among companies that employ between 20 and 499 workers.”

And…

The Federal Reserve has explicitly criticised budget cuts imposed by Congress, blaming fiscal policy for holding back the US’s economic recovery.

So naturally,

Rep. Billy Long (R-Mo.)… said Tuesday that his constituents want even more cuts to kick in.

“The people that I’ve talked to seem to be doing well,” Long told local news affiliate KOLR10 News.

Shocking, I know, that Billy Long doesn’t talk to many poor people.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
