Wreckovery Rant

I don't watch the debates because they infuriate me. Not just the moderators, but the candidates themselves.

A pet gripe is their stance on unemployment of course. You hear the idiots say that they don't think people should be paid for sitting around doing nothing, that unemployment should be tied to training.

Sure, go ahead, train me. I have no problem with that. But with 1 job for every 5 unemployed, what do you plan on doing after that?

As for sitting around doing nothing, do they think we're not looking for jobs? That's nothing? That's full time work in itself. We're not sitting here watching Oprah or The View, fools.

As for blaming it on the 99ers, that's just stupid. The 99ers are no longer collecting unemployment, so I guess they don't have to worry about them now, do they?

If these five bozos are the best the GOP can field we are in deep trouble.

They have little understanding on the unemployment situation -- which is separate from the jobs situation -- and no understanding of the unemployed.

And none of them have ever had to suffer through the degrading humiliation of living on the dole.

If they had they wouldn't be singing this tune.

And before you blame the 25-30 million un(der)employed for the debt woes of this once great nation, fix your spending problems in D.C. Fix the issues that are causing companies to not hire and take their business elsewhere.

If you fix the jobs problem, then the unemployment problem will go away of it's own.

But don't throw them under the bus and hope that problem will go away.

Politicians of both parties are sitting in their ivory towers and are completely out of touch with the reality on the ground.

How about stop all immigration until the unemployment rate is below, say, 5%? Why should American have to compete with foreigners for American jobs?

MR - right. Fix the job situation and the rest will take care of itself.

Now - who of elephants has a real plan to do that starting day one? Who has a plan that will show almost immediate effects? Can there be one? I think so. It all has to do with confidence. Install business friendly policies - and lots of the them - and we will see jobs being created.

"...fix your spending problems in D.C. Fix the issues that are causing companies to not hire and take their business elsewhere... If you fix the jobs problem, then the unemployment problem will go away of it's own."

It sounds to me like you retain a kind of wishful "faith" that these problems stem from sheer incompetence rather than design, and that if you can only get enough people repeating "please fix the jobs situation" then your "leaders" will ultimately hear it and, like the Wickersham Brothers and the Kangaroo, be motivate to act - or not act as the case may be.

But surely the progressives in charge who favor Saul Alinsky, Mao, garden variety communist dictators everywhere, suppression of free speech, corporate nationalization, wellfare state economics, class warfare, race myopia, and golf are thinking that they already HAVE fixed things. Fixed them good.

But since enterprising optimists view every problem as an opportunity in disguise, let's rejoice about all the business opportunities these assholes are surely creating in spite of themselves.

Because we don't actually want government to be in the business of creating jobs in the first place, just to stay the fuck out of the way.
