Where are the jobs?

Less than a day after the Comey hearing proved to be a big disappointment to Trump Hating Democrats, their fearless and often delusional Minority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), held a press conference on Capitol Hill demanding to know, “Where are the jobs? The election was about jobs. Jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs. He promised jobs. What has he done?”

Ms. Pelosi, I had that same question throughout President Obama’s alleged “economic recovery.”  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the last time the percentage of Americans with jobs was above 60% was in January and February of 2009, during Obama’s first six weeks in office.

This metric hit 60% again in February 2017, during Trump’s first six weeks in office.

    Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption in 1980 is Exhibit A how nature self-recovers from near apocalyptic disaster. We humans like to think we can do everything yet if we were smart we’d get out of the way and let nature do the job better. The economy is like nature, which if left to its own devices would find ways to self-correct without influence from clueless tinkerers. Nature is a roadmap but map-reading seems a missing skillset of the political hacks elected to guide us.

      Oh I dunno … seems to me the Progs WANT to trash our economy, particularly the uppity middle class small business owners, so they can more easily fold us into their global feudal society.
