The Frightening Continuing Costs of Artificially Created Unemployment.
Remembering that Government was created OF the People, BY the People, FOR the People; WE THE PEOPLE need to rise up and demand far better employment numbers from our government. Government can stimulate employment, and it does not need to be the direct source of the jobs.
By failing to address our serious underemployment and unemployment that is grievously effecting 23% of our real work force, we have, in fact, been destroying a whole generation and sacrificing our future. The Republiscams under Boehner in the House of Representatives are playing a game in that they are supposedly “focused on decreasing the deficit” with the pretend goal of decreasing the national debt that the Republiscams created in the first place with all of their damn phony wars and wasteful Military Industrial Complex Spending.
In doing this insane nonsense, Boehner et al are totally ignoring job growth FOR the People. Being JOB FRIENDLY is a government responsibility.
Job growth creates more job growth and that creates revenue for the government that can and usually does decrease the deficit, especially when you are removing people from the assistance roles. Yet, not one Republiscam in Congress is intelligent enough to understand this simple concept. It is either that, or they just do not give a damn about anybody except themselves. They understand Personal Greed very, very well; but they do not understand the importance of Job Creation in a high unemployment environment. It works and has worked many times in the past. I have witnessed it with my own eyes.
The Republiscams would have you believe that the long term unemployed are unemployable and thus, “just so much rabble” that should receive serious cutbacks in support because they are “takers.” Though I am certain that there are a few of them that would fall into that “taker” category, most of the chronically unemployed who are not seriously disabled would willingly work if there was work available.
People take pride in being self supporting. They prefer that to a handout. I see that every day here in Southern California with the Central American and southern Mexican “Native Americans” (Indians) who have migrated illegally to this country looking for any kind of work no matter how menial and degrading it may be, as long as they can send a few dollars to their wives and children far to the south.
There is tremendous nobility in their efforts to try to provide for their families since there is little or no work in their native villages and in their countries because of the Fortunate Son Bush created Global Recession that is still very real to most of the countries of the world. The United States Federal Reserve has loaned out 40 Trillion Dollars to refloat the world economy; and yet, the people are barely treading water. It is UGLY out there.
Most of our job creation in the past three years has been in the low paying service sector. Business growth is lagging and investment in new businesses is not there thanks to the weak economy and an actual decrease in average work hours and average pay in the Middle Class. People do not have as much money to spend and sales are weak. That results in cuts to the sales force.
Are we really that concerned about debt and the deficit under the present faltering economic conditions? Remember, if the Federal Reserve holds the debt, we pay no interest on it regardless of the interest rate stamped on the US Bonds. The Federal Reserve is non profit and deposits all of our interest payments in the US Treasury for us to use again. That, folks, is a damn good deal. The Federal Reserve has been the salvation of the United States for years now.
Republiscams = Republic Scammers = Criminals who scam the government for personal financial gain. = Traitors (Mass Murderers, Liars, Thieves!)
They are Fat Cat Industrialists, Bankers and Politicians OF ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR NONE who have taken over our country for the practice of their religion which is the worship of money and the massive accumulation of same, and they do not care who or how many they kill to get it.
