These Unemployment Numbers Are Staggering, Pt. 2

*Sigh* Here we are, son. It’s been less than two weeks since I wrote my first unemployment post and things have only gotten exponentially worse. I mean, in my original article, I talked about the 3.3 million people who filed for unemployment during the week ending March 21st. From there, shit went even more off of the rails, man. During the week ending March 28th, the unemployment claims ballooned to 6.9 million. Fast forward to today, another 6.6 million folks have filed claims with the Labor Department. Meaning, damn near 17 million Americans are currently out of a job.

Now, I won’t lie, fam. On the real, I don’t even know what else to say, bruh. Like, that’s the whole story, brethren. The fact is, the coronavirus is doing A LOT more than ravaging immune systems. Shit, despite the fact that the illness has claimed the lives of over 14,000 people, it’s claimed the livelihood of about 10% of the country’s workforce. All I can say is, even if we go back to “business as usual,” there’s no way to easily make up that difference, son. So, a ton of citizens might be assed out for a while, man.

In the end, I don’t have any answers, fam. On one hand, I want everyone to stay inside and be healthy. On the other hand, I want people to be able to support themselves. Ultimately, we’re all stuck between a rock and a hard place, bruh. By and by, something needs to happen soon, son. If it doesn’t, we could be facing an economy worse than the Great Recession AND the Great Depression, man. At the end of the day, I truly hope that I’m wrong about this. That is all. LC out.

Where Was Barack Obama During Hurricane Katrina?

Listen, people are stupid, son. Like, if we’re keeping it all of the way real, there are TONS of idiotic folks in our world. With that being said, it takes a special brand of moron to turn Hurricane Harvey into a bipartisan issue. However; some Donald Trump supporters have found a way to do it, man. Now, in an attempt to praise Trump’s response to Harvey, a few fools took aim at Barack Obama‘s response to Hurricane Katrina. There’s only one problem, fam: OBAMA WASN’T PRESIDENT DURING HURRICANE KATRINA!

Man, the dumb-dumb levels of some individuals are just mind-boggling. Look, not only did people claim that Obama botched the Katrina relief effort, but they even insinuated that he was golfing instead of doing his job. Keep in mind, Katrina occurred in 2005. Obama didn’t get elected until 2008 and didn’t take office until 2009. Back in ’05, he was only a Senator in Illinois and George W. Bush was the President. Now, despite that fact, Obama STILL made his way down to New Orleans to provide aid to the people. THAT’s what he was doing during Hurricane Katrina, son!

Listen, I’m no Obama apologist, but clowns go out of their way to try and make that man look bad. Shit, what’s next? Was he responsible for 9/11? Did he cause the Challenger to explode? Oh, wait, Vietnam was all his fault, bruh! Along with Pearl Harbor, the Great Depression AND the Civil War, fam! All in all, just blame the Black man! I mean, EVERYTHING is on him, man!

In the end, my head hurts, son. Like, people suck, bruh. On the real, dummies who think like this are allowed to vote in this country, people. These asshats have a hand and a voice in our political system. All I can say is, this is exactly why we’re doomed as a nation. By and by, thanks for giving me a daily reminder of the inevitable, Trump supporters. LC out.

Go Home, Congress, You’re Drunk

Did anyone know President Obama was responsible for the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster? Did anyone know he was responsible for the Watergate scandal? Wait, did anyone know Obama was chiefly responsible for the Great Depression in the 1930s? Well, if we all listened to the idiots in Congress, they’d probably try to convince us of all of those things. Look, just ONE day after overriding Obama’s veto of the controversial 9/11 law, Congress has suddenly had a change of heart. Now, instead of just admitting to their foolish errors, they still found a way to blame Obama for their own ineptitude. It’s so baffling to watch, son.

To start off, the 9/11 bill is a law that allows families to sue Saudi Arabia for their involvement in the World Trade Center attacks. Now, in theory, this sounds fantastic. However; there are certain complications that could potentially arise from a move like this. Namely, this could put the United States and our soldiers at risk for the same type of lawsuits. In case anyone forgot, America has a LONG history of fucking shit up in other people’s countries. So, if we start suing other nations for attacks, we could potentially be on the hook for the same tactic. Both Obama AND CIA Director John Brennan expressed these concerns.

With all of that being said, Congress heard these objections, said “fuck that” and hit Obama’s veto with the override. The Senate, for example, was so sure of itself, the vote was 97 to 1. 97 to fucking 1, man. That’s like the worst college football score ever, son. No type of “mercy rule,” bro. From there, the House followed in the tomfoolery and also passed the bill. Now, all of a sudden, Congress wants to change parts of the bill to protect our troops and blames Obama for not explaining the possible consequences. Are these people fucking kidding me, man? I swear, Republicans have made it their life’s mission to just disregard anything Obama says or does. Now, they got caught with their asses in the air and they still tried to pin it on him.

Regardless of what anyone else tries to say, it’s not his fault the Republican-led Congress didn’t think this one through. Shit, Mitch McConnell literally said “nobody focused on the potential downside in terms of our international relationships.” How on Earth is that an Obama issue? Look, if my mother told me not to touch the stove, I can’t then blame her for a burnt hand if I did it anyway. Honestly, if I tried that, I’d probably get backhanded in the mouth, man. Get these clowns the fuck out of here, son.

In the end, Congress must’ve really taken a lot of cues from Brexit. Apparently, it’s good form to overwhelmingly vote on something without doing proper research. Look, I’m no Obama apologist, but Congress blaming him for failing to do their job is ridiculous. Maybe, if they didn’t have such a hard-on for fighting him at every turn, then they would’ve made the right decision. Then again, maybe not, son. We have an ABUNDANT amount of idiots in our government. Good day.
