Your Thursday Afternoon Dose of Doom & Gloom

Sigh:

The number of planned layoffs at U.S. firms surged in August to their highest in half a year, with industrial goods manufacturers the hardest hit, a report on Thursday showed.

Employers announced 50,462 layoffs last month, up 33.8 percent from 37,701 in July, according to the report from consultants Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

I’m all out of clever on these stories. But then I remember that we’re stuck with Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom for the next three and a half years, so at least I’m all stocked up on anger and grief.

Bet most of the layoffs voted to re-elect HopeyChangey and are mad at their employers for laying them off. They are thanking their lucky stars that they can get free Obamacare and a hefty welfare/disability check from Obama.

The BLS has been doing its best to hide it, but 2013 is really a catastrophic year for the economy.

the gloom and doom for me doesn't come from these numbers. it comes from the fact that this SCFoaMF was RE-elected.
