Labor Day 2012: If you don't have a job, it's no holiday!

Here's a quote from today's Washington Times:
 "For 23 million Americans without jobs, the Labor Day holiday is not a day off but just another day without work. It’s a fitting hash mark for the presidential campaign kickoff, reminding Americans of President Obama’s tragic failure to deliver."
Jobless workers line up in Missouri to apply for  work.
Youth unemployment is up to 17.1 percent and the black unemployment has risen to 14.4%. Those who've given up looking for work or can't find work are at an all time high of 14.9%,
The President's press secretary, Jay Carney had the audacity to say that all this unemployment isn't really bad news. He thinks it can be healthy for the economy because jobless benefits boost consumption and the money that the unemployed spend creates growth and boosts the economy. Do you believe that? Is that the kind of rhetoric you expect to hear from the President's press secretary? It's idiotic and it epitomizes this administration in every way!!

Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader

By the way, Nancy Pelosi and White House senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, have both said the same thing. (This is the same Nancy Pelosi, a brilliant intellect who told us that the Affordable Health Care Act of 2600 pages had to be passed so we would know what's in it. Duh?!!) It must be the new Democratic talking point to rationalize and justify 8.3% unemployment.

Personally, I think It's part of the BIG LIE which if you tell it often enough, people will begin to believe it. What used to be bad is now good, what was once considered idiotic is now wisdom. If unemployment is such a boost to the economy, let's all quit our jobs and  go on the government dole, and collect our unemployment checks for the next 3 yrs or more.

As we celebrate Labor Day 2012, we need to be reminded that those who are actively working in the Labor Force here in America is 63.8%, the LOWEST number since WWII.

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend. If you have a job, you've earned this day of rest. If you believe in prayer, pray for the 23 million who are out of work and clinging to what little hope they have of getting a job. If you really care about the 23 million, vote for Mitt Romney and real change this coming November. He knows what needs to be done to unleash the private sector and all of our energy resources to create new jobs. Within his first year, probably 3-4 million new jobs will be created and the XL Pipeline will be approved creating new construction jobs for thousands.

If you don't have a job, it's no holiday, it's a not-so-subtle reminder that your president and this administration don't really care about you or your need for work. They're too busy campaigning, fundraising and golfing.
