Whats happening in the US with no significant relief in prospect is unparalleled in the the nations history.
Unemployment, growing poverty, food insecurity, and overall deprivation are growing, not easing while politicians in Washington prioritize war-making and self-interest over essential aid to needy households, small businesses, as well as cash-strapped states and local communities.
Both right wings of the US one-party state are guilty of crimes against humanity at home and worldwide.
Whatever the outcome of November 3 elections, nothing fundamental will change unacceptable continuity assured like nearly always before.
On Thursday, another 898,000 jobless Americans filed new claims for unemployment insurance (UI).
Another 373,000 applied for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) the federal program for workers ineligible for regular UI.
If not renewed, PUA will expire at yearend.
