   Well, it should be interesting to observe the RW hold their tongue when they learn that the current WH regime is looking to bring in foreigners to take the jobs of those who have been fired.     https://www.politico.com/news/2020/04/02/trump-immigrant-workers-coronavirus-162177

The bad economic news continues...

 

ORLANDO, Fla. — SeaWorld will furlough 90 percent of its workers as it deals with the fallout from closure because of COVID-19.
SeaWorld said the workers are being furloughed beginning April 1 and will not be compensated after March 31, according to filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.


The company said the workers would be eligible for unemployment benefits.

 

The furlough affects workers at parks companywide, including Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
An SEC filing says that as of December 31, 2019, SeaWorld employed about 4,300 full-time and about 11,000 part-time workers.


SeaWorld is not sure how long the furlough period will be, but the company says it hopes to welcome its workers back once the park can reopen.

Translation of Trump Lovers comments: Trump LIES to Americans every day of the week, including lies about the critical Corona Virus story, and we don't care.

Trump Cult members live in an alternate reality where the truth and facts do not exist. Trump called the Corona Virus a "Democratic HOAX"

 

Just last week, Trump said the virus was under "TREMENDOUS CONTROL".

Obama cult members seem to NOT understand that Trump uses flamboyant language but has the country in their best interest but that does not matter to the Obama cult.  Trump's destruction is the Obama cults goal but it is a futile goal since he will be President for four more years!!!!

Are their any decent economists out there projecting whether this recession will look like a U -- that it's a harsh fall but doesn't last long?  Or an L -- and will be an extended recession?

I don't feel good about our current situation, in spite of what some might contend, but I do want to lay our condition at trump's feet...he is responsible for a large part of the increase of the virus and the continued slide of the economy. He now owns it. 

Let's see him blame this on Obama and Hillary!

Yup .... Trump fell off President Obama's coat tails .... the coat tails of President Obama's enormous economic success!

 

With Trump's record of numerous bankruptcies and billion dollar losses, he has no qualifications nor ability to lead our country out of this mess!

How did Trump set himself up to fail?  He told the Democrats that he was early on eliminating Chinese from coming in the country (since Covid 19) and the Democrats balked saying he was a racist (typical call from Democrats).  Thank your stars that Sleepy Joe wasn't in office.

You conveniently forget that Trump called the virus a "hoax" and diminished the urgency when the virus outbreak started here.

Instead, Trump sent 18 tons of our stockpile of PPE and ventilators to China ..... then dishonestly blamed President Obama for the shortage he (Trump) created!

     Typical RW attempting to blame Dems for the crashing of the economy.    Did they miss the part where Donald was proudly signing the bill that will help many unemployed?   

     Had the current WH regime and all the RW players actually stepped up and been pro-active when the epidemic was noted by the US media in late Jan / early Feb.   and actually started taking action then instead of waiting until mid-March, the economic status of the nation may have been different.   Why did the WH et al make a stupid demand that the testing for the virus be from a "made in the US"  instead of using one that had already been designed and validated, aka ready to use.    

 

    Every delay by the WH was another roadblock that had to be overcome and each of those was not just human deaths, they were blows against the economy.    

    The unemployment rate is a result of WH roadblocks.    And those roadblocks created early on, remain part of the problem today.   https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/01/politics/testing-backlog-coronavirus-quest-invs/index.html

The high unemployment rate is due to the Chinese Virus since the liberals don't know this!

All should keep in mind all during last year we were being warned by the economy experts this country was headed for a big down turn due to the Trump policies. Tax cut not paid for was a big one. Tariff wars started by Trump. There was one point the curve was inverted and we were told that always means trouble. We saw all of our allies moving away from the US, even had them mocking how stupid Trump was. The virus was just the straw that broke the camel's back. We are now told we could be heading for another 1929 depression. This is what happens when you put a person in charge who comes out of the NY mob world and has mental problems and combine them with the far right. No he did not cause the virus, but what he did allowed it to do to the world what it is doing, and we will pay for that. As the Boston paper told is readers today. Trump has blood on this hands.

Since it's obviously NOT good news, you have to explain why the LEFT feels it is good news.  Is it because the left feels that with all this dependency on government, you will be able to convert many more Democrats looking for more handouts?

Oh? Unemployment is a "handout"? And here I thought it was a benefit that taxes pay for. So in that case Social Security and Medicare are also "handouts"?

Seems conservatives are just as happy about the checks they are about to get as the liberals are...socialism for all.
