This brilliant idea came over in my FB feed:

Those Space X guys arent due back for a while.

Plenty of time for everyone to buy a gorilla suit and learn how to ride a horse

Early reactions I listened to were that the numbers don't make great sense, given other weekly data. I have to wonder if Trumpsucking now is being enforced in the Commerce Department to slant and distort the statisticians work there. Look what the SS leader Barr has done with the Justice Department.

You were saying ?
The May jobs report had 'misclassification error' that made the unemployment rate look lower than it is. Here's what happened

Heather Long, The Washington Post
Published 4:35 pm PDT, Friday, June 5, 2020

When the U.S. government's official jobs report for May came out on Friday, it included a note at the bottom saying there had been a major "error" and the unemployment rate likely should be higher than the widely report 13.3 percent rate.
The special note said that if this misclassification error had not occurred, the "overall unemployment rate would have been about 3 percentage points higher than reported," meaning the unemployment rate would be about 16.3 percent for May.

A reminder today isn't "just" June 6.

Today is the76th Anniversary of the D Day landings on occuied Europe. Please take a minute to think of the 150,000 heros of the day and the 4,414 thatr didn't come back.

An appropriate quote from Shakepeare's Henry V in honor of the heroes of D-Day 1944:

This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd, ...
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day.

Outside of the smoking trash heap of this admnistration's "governance" I wonder if our NRA buddies have realized this is eactly what they have been waiting for the government (a Democrat) to do. The Government's jack booted thugs are here and can come to take away their gun penis rights.

"Fortunately" they're NOT after real Americans.
