This was my show this morning concerning the Presidents impending Jobs creation proposal.  I’ll surely be doing another show next week before and likely after concerning the philosophical, practical, and historical aspects of this all too broad a topic.  Here you go, today’s show. I’ll likely have a recording available by email at the very least. I’m working on having a podcast section and I need storage for all of this as well. Enjoy.

Okay. Good morning. Welcome to the Community voice. etc.
Today is a big day for me.  I’ve spent a lot of time doing some digging, reading transcripts of the presidents previous speeches, *hint hint*.  To get down to the bottom of this. Let’s start with the president teasing the millions of dopes out there who actually believe it is in the governments power to create jobs. One of the most fundamental annoyances I see all the time from the media, and politicians. The government doesn’t create jobs. Period. Government can only take wealth from individuals, it cannot create it. Here’s the president in a recent statement:
“But both you and I can pressure them to do the right thing. We can send the message that the American people are playing by the rules and meeting their responsibilities—and it’s time for our leaders in Congress to meet theirs.
And we must hold them accountable if they don’t.
So I’m asking you to stand with me in calling on Congress to step up and take action on jobs.
It’s been a long time since Congress was focused on what the American people need them to be focused on.
I know that you’re frustrated by that. I am, too.” -BARACK OBAMA
Really?  Really?  You’re kidding.  I don’t believe what I’m reading. The president is actually condeming a congress that’s divided in power and ideology to step up and do the right thing in a time of jobs crisis.  Last I checked, jobs have been a crisis ever since the guy stepped in office.  And he had an entirely democratic supermajority in both houses for TWO YEARS.  Really? Now it’s time to ask congress what to do? Is this man insane? No, he’s not. This is 100% deliberate. And here’s why:
This guy is an outstanding politician. It’s a shame that is all he’s good at.  Kool-aid drinkers are going to read this and lap it up. Don’t doubt me one bit.  When they hear this conceited, self-righteous, down-right lie they will be filled to the brim with joy.  This guy is an outstanding orator, given the aid of a teleprompter of course, and he sounds good, looks good, and repeats the anti-american, anti-individualism, anti-free market, anti-business, anti-liberty.  This man stands against everything that is just and sensible in the world. If you believe in economic liberty, individual freedom, and maximizing your personal human nature to pursue your own dreams, you don’t believe a word this man says.
So on to the meat and potatoes.  The pork and beans.  The jobs plan of which we all wait with bated breath:
Okay, let me stop for just a moment and talk about this thing.  This “Jobs” announcement.  This guy is the most powerful media figure in the world. He can set the stage on television, radio, twitter, anywhere he wants and he will get more viewrship than anyone else. Period. And he picks the exact day, and the exact time slot of a GOP debate?
Why couldn’t he do it before he went on vacation? Or today? Or tomorrow? Or Saturday? Or at 5pm next Wednesday?
Total political move. Anyone who doubts it is a moron.
Speeches are fine, he can lay out all the plattitudes he wants. Just don’t spend our money.
Okay, so here we are, the Jobs plan:
Wait, have you ever had a really bad case of Deja Vu?  About a year ago President Obama sat down with Brian Williams just before he went on his end of summer vacation to Cape Cod.  The big revelation in the interview was the President’s promise that as soon as he is back from his family vacation he was going to present a jobs plan to the country. Hmmm… Doesn’t that sound familiar….  Here’s president Obama, just one year ago:
“We anticipated that the recovery was slowing – the economy is still growing, but it’s not growing as fast as it needs to. I’ve got things right now before Congress that we should move immediately, and I said so before I went on vacation, and I’ll keep on saying it now that I’m back,” Obama told Williams when asked if he had a jobs plan.
“There are a whole host of measures we could take – no single element of which is a magic bullet – but cumulatively can start continuing to build momentum for the recovery,” -BARACK OBAMA
Now where did I hear that before. Oh wait a tick, I know. Pick me pick me!!! Tuesday! That’s right.  It was Tuesday and it was in the White House Rose Garden.  I knew I had heard that from somewhere!!!
Next week, I will be laying out a series of steps that Congress can take immediately to put more money in the pockets of working families and middle-class families, to make it easier for small businesses to hire people, to put construction crews to work rebuilding our nation’s roads and railways and airports, and all the other measures that can help to grow this economy.
You’d think, would you not, that the press would pick up on this?
So here you go:
Directly from the president himself:

OBAMA: For example, putting people to work rebuilding our roads, our bridges, our schools all across America…
What on God’s green earth was the stimulus package? I mean, really?  Wasn’t that all about infrastructure, saving the jobs of teachers, fire fighters, police officers, etc?  Don’t forget all of these professions are over-bloated government jobs primarily filled with Union or democrat voters.  Is there a difference? Here’s more:
We’ve got the capacity right now to help local school districts make sure that they’re not laying off more teachers. We haven’t been as aggressive as we need to, both at the state and federal level. -Obama
We’ve nearly tripled the cost of sending a child all the way through the K-12 system, while performance near the end of high school has been stagnant (reading and math) or even declining (science). Just returning to the staff-to-student ratio of 1980 would save almost $150 billion annually—and somehow students weren’t performing noticeably differently in the ’80s than today.
How about that infrastructure spending? You know, so all of these poor, destitute, and discouraged americans who don’t have jobs can drive to the jobs they don’t have!!!  BRILLIANT!!!
USA Today reports that part of President Obama’s much-anticipated plan for the economy, 3.0, might involve sending billions more in construction funding to our government school system. Sounds like plans 1.0 and 2.0.
A plan to boost construction jobs nationwide by providing federal money to repair public schools is picking up support among unions, economists and liberal advocates with direct ties to the White House. No way!!!
Brilliant! Just the thing to fix our education system, economy and massive deficit . . . more lavish spending piled up high upon our already-lavishly-funded government schools.
Andrew Coulson at the CATO institute already reviewed the dismal record of our total K-12 education “investment” over the last few decades. The short story; the cost per student has nearly tripled while test scores at the end of high school are flat. But maybe, despite $500 million-dollar debacles like LA’s RFK high school and countless other examples of stupendously overbuilt government school facilities, just maybe we’ve neglected to spend “enough” on school buildings overall.

 

This is going to look just like the old stimulus bill.  Period.  It’s going to call tax credits tax cuts, when they aren’t.  It’s going to call spending “investing,” when it’s not.  It’s going to seek to spend billions of dollars on what the government thinks is necessary because we all know, that people aren’t smart enough to make their own decisions with their own money.  And you know what? We’re going to have to borrow about half of whatever is in this steaming pile of democrat and union vote buying horse poop.

For what? Jay Carney’s proposed 1% reduction in the unemployment numbers? You’ve got to be kidding me.
