..to cut Government Workers residing in the Bureaucracy.
The primary issue for the upcoming mid-terms will now be the Corruption of Government. Rightly so. But it was going to be “just” the size and scope…
The Democrats were ready for this and are preparing to argue the time is not now to “put hard-working people out of work”. Particularly during a period of high unemployment and a precarious recovery underway. (Both of which were supposed to be solved by now through all of our money, as well as money magically created on a printer, being thrown to the wind in the name of the Obama Stimulus.)
The “hard-working people” in this case are Government Employees… who would necessarily lose their jobs when government is reduced in size and scope.
This is one of the reasons I do not believe the scandals at the IRS and DOJ were intended to be discovered. Not only does it take the focus away from any conjured success the Administration can point to in various areas where government has become obese, it also creates a hostile environment within which to convince voters that every government employee is “hard-working”… at least hard-working in a way we would want them to be.
This will also be the defense used to protect Obama Care. Should a repeal, or de-funding, movement gain any real traction the Administration will fall back on the number of people who will be put out of work should it happen. It’s all they will have.
If our candidates genuinely believe what they profess to believe, then it is always the right time to “free the workers enslaved by a government paycheck” and allow them to enjoy life within the private sector. We will welcome them with open arms. It could be enlightening for them to join the rest of us in the world we have to live.
We would all stand to benefit because, the private sector is in desperate need of workers willing to do the jobs Unions will not do.
But there lies the rub.
An Insurance policy has been put in place by the Leftists.
The Unions have been working diligently to raise the minimum wage across the country, and in correlation raise the base Union wages. They have been successful.
By raising the Minimum Wage levels they are pricing entry-level jobs out of existence. Employers simply cannot afford to hire low-skilled workers and train them.
By raising the Minimum Wage levels, they are making business risk too sever. Entrepreneurs cannot afford the labor cost to take the risk of starting a new business.
And, by raising Minimum Wage levels the rest of us are finding our dollar only goes half as far as it used to. Because, those business struggling to keep the doors open have to raise their prices strictly due to the cost of labor.
The Unions are punishing all of us. And, they are too focused on Socialist ends to care.
The war on economic prosperity is in full swing. The Progressive Socialists are winning.
It may be time to start thinking in Black and Gray.

OK, the headline says it all: The real reason Obama tapped Susan Rice for national security adviser
I really don’t care which ass he’s tapping but that woman doesn’t have a shred of integrity

I’m sitting here watching this out of the corner of my eye… and all I can think of is a simple lesson. Instead of jet-packing those who make themselves look like fools, which the Conservatives always do, you just promote them to higher positions of power. Speaking of which, has anybody been able to locate Valerie Jarrett lately? We will be needing a new Attorney General soon.
