Not-As-Smart-As-a-Turnip,

And dumber than everyone else….

“We all know government doesn't create jobs! “

Whoever told you government doesn't create jobs?

What a pigeon.

Of course government creates jobs,

just look at government payrolls.

I can spell dumb, but do you know what that means dumberthanme?

Whatever the government provides in the way of ‘jobs’,

Our friendly republicans,

and the rich,

and their corporations,

nullify the economic impact and multiplication factor gained by 'government jobs',

because these good free-enterprising people

find it monetarily advantageous to send work overseas,

creating unemployment here at home,

and shrink the total economic pie, for the very people who would like their pie and eat it in this country.

Constantly ‘reporting’ minuscule changes in employment figures means

NOTHING,

until you compare wages and salaries that were paid to the number of people employed for a finite time in the past,

WITH

present employment figures, comparing wages and salaries paid to the current number of people employed for the same finite time in the present.

By comparing spending on labor and people employed for a defined period in the past with the spending on labor and people employed for a similar defined period today, will overall, provide a starting basis for economic comparison.

Of course, other parameters also enter into those calculations as well,

such as inflation, prices, value of the dollar in world markets….

To simply glorify employment figures as the end-all bench-mark,

is false, misleading, and without merit,

for even spending the time to write those figures on paper, let alone, to report them in daily papers

Anyone blaming government for the lack of jobs right now is a socialist, fascist, communist swine looking for a handout! We all know government doesn't create jobs! If you people would just get off your lazy butt and work the whole problem would go away! Go out and start a business if you don't like not having a job!

*Note: intended with the utmost contempt and sarcasm towards the right-wingers on here...isn't it fun to hear your own talking points back at ya?

"President Big Ears is the Greatest Hoax ever perpertrated on the American People!"

Talk about a leap of trust or faith...

The perp who penned those words doesn't have the cognitive ability to research the issue of a 'hoax'.

Levi-ti-cus,

have you applied the scientific method to investigate your general knowledge of ALL the hoaxes that have been perpetrated on the american people?

I think not.

The nearest to your age and understanding of perpetrated hoaxes begins with bill and hillary, the rich, their corporations and the idea of one person,

one vote...

levi-ti-cus, clearly you have not performed due dilligence and your homework...

before uttering such inance words.

"President Big Ears is the Greatest Hoax ever perpertrated on the American People!"

Levi-ti-cus, such talk from the mouth of a self-rightous

christian...

What is relevant, is the fact that everyone said they were voting for the man just a few years ago...

today, everyone is saying they didn't vote for the man...

you self-rightous christians can't have it both ways...

talk about a 'hoax'...

one side of your mouth is causing your forked tongue into lying into the other side of your head

where your deaf ear occupies the brain-dead side of your head.

a famous oracle somewhere indicated one of us was a hypocrite....

he must have been addressing you's!

as you consider the question of low employment or more correctly high unemployment...

you must first correctly identify the cause of the problem:

in this regard you cannot forget to address the issue of

in·de·fat·i·ga·ble stupidity,

you jercks left out the rich and the republicans to properly place blame for the economic, social, educational, and infrastructure conudom, we are all in...
