Blame it on the Jet Stream, Why Don't We?

With the American economy producing only a lowly 96,000 jobs last month, well short of the 150 thousand needed to keep pace with population growth, it seems some are casting about for any ready excuse. It seems the series of hurricanes to pummel Florida is on the receiving end of the blame game this time around, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune.

Give me a break. To say the state of Florida would've given us a hundred thousand jobs is a joke. Florida is a sinkhole, a sucking belly wound at the bottom of America.

But maybe there is some truth to it. Those hurricanes might have blown away that many Republican trolls whose job it was to disrupt Florida's electoral process. After all, they've repeatedly been doing anything and everything to keep people from voting and to ensure a Chimpy victory.

Somewhere the ghost of a Spanish monarch is having a grand old time laughing about selling that useless chunk of swamp-land to the United States. I wonder if they'd consider refunding our money and taking it back?
