Wolf Richter of Wolf Street released a piece on May 22, 2020 highlighting national unemployment statistics.

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rates for states in April ranged from “7.9% in Connecticut to a catastrophic 28.2% in Nevada.”

Richter noted that in Nevada’s case “the casinos and shows and hotels and everything that comes along with them have been put on ice, and people in the US and from around the world aren’t traveling to Nevada anymore to gamble.”

Richter outline what the unemployment scenario looked like in other states:

The unemployment rates of the big four states – they account for one-third of the total US population – are in the same double-digit middle-of-road-ish horrible range, middle-of-road within the spectrum from 7.9% to 28.2%, with unemployment rates of 12.8% in Texas, 12.9% in Florida, 14.5% in New York, and 15.5% in California.

The financial blogger posted a table showing the unemployment rates for each state in April (second column), along with the right by the rates of “partial-Covid” March (third column) and pre-Wuhan virus February (fourth column). The states are ordered from the lowest unemployment rate to the highest unemployment rate.

The state’s population (according to census 2019 estimates), which is stated in millions, is represented in the fifth column on the right.

University Student Who Dared Question the LGBT Agenda is Now Facing the Threat of Losing his Scholarship

Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.

A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.

Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”

Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”

She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.

Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.

Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.

Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.

Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.

Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
