Employers in the US shed twice as many jobs as expected in July, fanning fears that the recovery in the world's largest economy will not see a revival in employment.

I am just PREPARING for the SKY ROCKETING CRIME that is about to occur as a result soon enough.
Especially when those non-compassionate WAR-MONGERING Republicans dont pass the unemployment extension to SO MANY folks that lost their jobs, come November if they (Republicans) get the majority in the house. (Hopefully NOT!)
Glad to have a job, but I got to spend money now on DEFENSIVE measures and possibly an UNDERGROUND BUNKER for crying out loud. (that may not be a joke!)
Geez, this is RIDICULOUS.

I have a gut feeling that more stimulus is in the offing.
It might be done as a piggyback to some other bill, but it seems to me like it's a given at this point.
These knuckleheads have backed themselves into a corner. More stimulus would buy them more time, and might bring our currency to it's knees in the process.
They want to save themselves, and create a crisis. It's how they've done it for decades.
In doing this, they'll have scads more on their payrolls. People that don't want to bite the hand that is supposedly feeding them.
