Join Jim and Greg as they welcome some non-conservative voices explaining that another massive spending bill will only make inflation worse.  They also cringe as 4.4 million Americans quit their jobs in September after 4.3 million did the same in August. And Jim throws up his hands as blue states are stunned that COVID cases are on the rise despite their high vaccination rates.

    Most stupid of all is that vaccine mandates seem to be based on the falsehood that the Covid-19 vaccines prevent infection.

    How and why are so many Americans quitting their jobs?  This makes no sense. Don’t you need a job and money to make it with the inflationary pricing across all sectors? How are they living? You can’t make ends meet on gov handouts. Is this a false headline – a fake statistic? 

    On another note, I had to call our Internet co yesterday regarding a billing error. The young person with a foreign accent helped get it straightened out. I didn’t ask what city or country he was in. However, at the end of the call, he also sounded teary-eyed.  He kept thanking me, and said I lost my job and I only have had this job for 2 months, and I am go grateful because now I can feed my family!  My gosh! He said thank you for being a customer and so nice.  It was weird, and made me get choked up.  Wherever he was, they are not quitting their jobs……..

    I don’t get why this is a mystery.

    With a lot of job openings available, people are quitting their jobs — to take other jobs.

    What am I missing?

    Maybe they’re quitting vax-requiring jobs and taking non-vax-requiring jobs?
