is going to find reality a much harsher mistress--if and when he ever becomes President of the United States.
In recent (inflammatory) statements, he proclaims: "I'm going to help the poor find jobs and hold onto the jobs they love!"
Fat Dougnut Boy has it wrong. Poor people like me haven't been able to find work lately (I'm working on my 7th month of searching) at all--because there aren't that many jobs to go around.
The economy is simply not producing enough jobs for everyone to be had.
Certainly not the low-paying ones--which are in shockingly short supply. Naturally, you can log onto any online job board and look at the list and find jobs galore, but the awful truth is, 99% of us job-seekers aren't qualified for most of the job listings posted.
For me, that would be companies like Boeing and Swedish Medical. Compass Health and Cistern. I'm never going to be a blood specialist, or an aerospace engineer, or a cardiac doctor. Or a sous chef.
My skills as a would-be laborer don't progress past retail. But my skills are obsolete and outdated. I haven't worked in a good long time. But my job searches these last seven months haven't produced so much as a real job interview or potential hiring--which says alot about the state of our nation's economy.
So where does Newt Gingrich think he'll be able to help the poor find work and keep the jobs they love if the Republican Party keeps blocking meaningful job legislation on account of increased taxes on the filthy rich?
You know as well as I do that the GOP don't care about the welfare of the general populace. We're just as expendable as dirt when it comes to setting priorities. If you're rich and wealthy, they have your back.
But job creation? Nada. (Unless you include the XL Keystone pipeline project that's only going to generate 20,000 jobs in the US, but nothing else.)
So I'm curious as to how Doughnut Boy is going to be able to keep his campaign promises when he can't seem to keep his hands off women he's had past affairs with?
