How long, O Lord, must intelligent people put up with total BULLDINKEY?
You hear it every where. Job creation. JOB CREATION! Job creation job creation job creation job creation. There's only one problem -- it's a big fat stinking lie.
"Job creation" is truly one phrase that should make everybody want to throw up when they hear it, without exception. It's such a monstrous fraud, such a colossal imposition on normal thought and speech that I'm really, seriously surprised that anybody ever works again in politics after promising to create jobs or preening about supposedly having done so, etc.
Jobs are a fact of human existence. They're like breathing. If politicians can brag on creating jobs, they're entitled to wholesale shtick about bringing air and light into existence too. Conversely, if the jerks even have to mention a major dearth of jobs -- especially over such an endlessly long term as they have during the present phase of ameriKa's decline -- what they're really saying is that they are totally incompetent and only fit for relegation to the dustbin of history.
But of course, this is merely emblematic of everything they do. It's the DNA of dirty rotten politics -- of a piece with "regime change" or "homeland security". Hint for Heloise #3765: When politicians run their mouths about saving you from TERR'ISTS but every day you feel more terrified by what THEY are doing........... or they set up a gargantuan bureaucracy to make your "homeland" more "secure", yet spend the rest of time telling you you're still living on the brink of total annihilation no matter how much money you send them............. then you must surely perceive that they're either lunatics, shysters or pinstripe Caligulas looking to take everything you've got and get rid of you.
When they start talking JOB CREATION you can be sure they're planning to totally, permanently throw everybody out of meaningful employment.

Following in the footsteps of a rather ignominious list of nations like Argentina and Hungary, the government of lreland is set to take its 'fair share' of private retirement funds.
Drowning in debt and faced with unpopular, unrealistic, ridiculously unpopular austerity measures, the government has announced that it will now tax private pension savings in order to raise 470 million euros (roughly $675 million) per year... a lot of money in a country of only 4.4 million people.
Somehow, the government expects to be able to create 100,000 jobs to bring down an unemployment rate at 14.7%. Perhaps they plan on hiring 100,000 new workers to go around the country and collect the tax.
It reminds me of what I saw in Bolivia a couple of weeks ago-- there's a tax or toll or fee for nearly everything you do. Driving on the highway (if you can call it that) outside of Santa Cruz, you pay a toll... obviously not for the maintenance of the road, but to pay the salary of the toll collector.
At the airport, you have to pay an airport tax before departure... obviously not for the upkeep and efficiency of the airport (it took 2-hours to make it to my gate), but to pay the salaries of the guys who collect the airport tax.
This is what politicians consider 'job creation,' yet these positions only serve to destroy value.............</DIV></DIV>
