That damned Bright Side

What's Mallard raving about today?

Unemployment, Government Spending

I was wrong, Mallard did add something to his repetitiveness whinging about duplication of effort.

He added his standard tone deafness about unemployment, which he finds alternately hilarious and vexing, since in his world you get paid for putting forth no effort to create nothing of value.

I stand corrected.

Yeah...the unemployment rate of the employed tends to skew pretty closely to zero, Tins. That doesn't make this joke a) not dumb, and b) not heartless.

Remember, any money the government spends is wasting money, unless it's for guns, then it's dollars well-spent!

"Under Obama, a Record Decline in Government Jobs"

"Over all — including a decline of 12,000 public sector jobs in the Labor Department report for December — government employment is down 2.6 percent over the last three years, compared to a decline of 2.2 percent in the early Reagan years. That is a record"

Hey, Obama is Reaganier than Reagan was! How did Tinshley miss that in his research?

You beat me to it, rewinn. And the last unemployment statistics came out just before Bruce scrawled this strip. He gets it wrong with such consistency that it almost qualifies as a super power, like "100% Wrong Foresight."

rewinn- It's not written at the bottom of an Old Grandad bottle, that's how he missed it.

See also, the "What have the Romans even done for us?" scene from Life of Brian.

What? Somedays, I don't feel like putting in more work to make fun of this shithole strip then he does drawing it. Vague sources is all you get.

Rewinn: "Hey, Obama is Reaganier than Reagan was!"

Batshit: "That's a lie! Reagan wasn't black! Take it back! You racist! ...Policy? What the hell are you talking about, 'policy?' You just called Reagan a goddamn ******!"
