At that point, there will be more than 42% of U.S. people that actually want jobs, unemployed and no benefits. Wonder why the U.S. is sending 5, yes 5!, aircraft carrier groups to Asian waters? Thats like 50 ships and subs. Those unemployed folks are going to wonder what happened to their jobs and their eyes are going to be looking at China. We will soon start thinking seriously about FTA and their is going to be political hell to pay. I am even worried for my safety if the shit starts getting flung about.
Guess you can tell that Johnny is my friend on this day off but I am saying facts, not speculation. 42% of U.S. folks that are actually wanting a job will be unemployed and with no benefits. Shelters better start cooking more chicken soup - stat came straight from government reports. It pisses me off that they only report new applications for unemployment which remains at about 11%. They dont tell about the long termers and someone is soon going to be asking why.
