We have too much not-enough-unemployment

The Associated Press is reporting that Friday's unemployment report will be ... bad (tip: Don Surber). But the administration says it's the weather's fault. (At least it's not the climate's fault.) The AP calls shenanigans.
The report can't just be dismissed. Once the snow effect is filtered out, they say the data will still signal weak hiring: Little if any job growth, and an unemployment rate predicted to rise to 9.8 percent or more from 9.7 percent.
While everyone's getting their panties in a wad over the number of unemployed, they don't realize that there is an easy way to solve the unemployment problem.

Make more people lose their jobs.

Now, sure, this sounds like a Barack Obama solution. He's one to address a problem of too much government by having more government.

But, this isn't the same thing. You see, I'm thinking that we could get more people back to work if a few certain select people joined the ranks of the unemployed. I can think of 257 people that need to lose their jobs, and things will get better.

Wait! I just thought of 59 more!

This will work.

You're welcome.
