The first sentence of this Associated Press story really says it all:
After a disappointing new unemployment report, President Barack Obama pushed on Friday for an expanded government program..
No, scratch that – the first half of the first sentence says it all. Unemployment is much worse than President Obama said it would be, so let’s spend more of that stimulus money! Subsidizing green jobs – however the lobbyists and leftists define “green jobs” – is the obvious solution. This is really all Glenn Beck’s fault; if he hadn’t ruined the tenure of sweet, gentle communist Green Jobs Czar Van Jones our economy would be so green right now… you don’t even know!
Speaking of environmental boondoggles, someone remind me to dump all my GE if it gets back around $20. I should’ve learned before I started buying GE that two of the pillars of their business model are:
- Lobby for government strangulation of things we don’t make.
- Lobby for government funding of things we make that nobody wants to buy.
