Obama’s Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, in an interview: “I should point out, when you talk about the SNAP program or the foot stamp program, you have to recognize that it’s also an economic stimulus. Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity. If people are able to buy a little more in the grocery store, someone has to stock it, package it, shelve it, process it, ship it. All of those are jobs. It’s the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times.”
The man has spoken! Food stamps are stimulus! It seems that food stamps do a better job of stimulating the economy than jobs do, evidently. Because although there has been a vast increase of people on them, the jobs are less and less plentiful. Hmm… maybe foodstamps are helpful. I mean hungry people got to eat right? And when people eat, they spend money right? Well the thing is, it is government sending money to people, to get them to buy stuff. Only, unlike Stimulus 1.0, this is long term government spending.
One problem with this plan, government can’t continue to spend more and more money, sending essentially free money to people who aren’t working, or are working less, and taking that money from people who are working. Many of whom are not working anymore since Obama and his henchmen are making it much less business friendly within this country.
Again, my brain is scrambled, because the news is on and is turned way up, but I guarantee that my quality articles will become higher quality once I work out a better schedule. Stay informed.

It’s official, after not months, but YEARS of searching for work in my rundown section of the country, I officially start work tomorrow at a Church supply company. Which one? Wouldn’t you like to know. In any case, the on the job training starts at 7 in the morning, but I couldn’t be happier. Even with the normal new job jitters I can thankfully say, ‘Praise God and hallelujah! I’ve got a job!’ Unfortunately this is something that nearly 10% of Americans cannot say thanks to the job and business killing policies of Barry Obama, the worst president in the history of the universe. Stay tuned for more.

The unions are up to it again, bashing every non-union workplace they can find. In the most recent issue of the local UAW newsletter they proudly bash a local store chain as well as Marc’s and Walmart. Here’s what ticks me off the most, this local store chain is HIRING and I’m trying to find a job there, among other places. For people like me, who have no jobs and are looking for anything right now, the stinkin’ union is doing more harm than good. But that is typical of the union. Unions have for the longest time been looking out for themselves and themselves alone. To heck with the unemployed, to heck with their own company as long as they can suck the blood out before it dies.
But the hypocrisy part comes in above the plea to not shop at non-union shops. In BIG, BOLD letters is the statement “SUPPORT AMERICAN WORKERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON”. Now isn’t that the height of hypocrisy? They would have you believe that the union has a monopoly on American workers? What a crock! American workers are by and large NON-UNION. Perhaps the ad should have stated “SUPPORT OUR FAT CAT UNION BOSS AND HIS CRONIES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON”.
Now I don’t mind if they say to support unionized markets or whatever. Really I don’t. It’s their free speech right to do so. Sure I think that unions pretty much foul up everything their hands touch but that’s their prerogative. However, when they basically advocate a boycott against a reputable, respectful business that is HIRING in a bad economy, you can be #@&! sure that I’m ticked off. There are a lot of people that would love to have a job from this small business and couldn’t care less if there was a dang union involved. If people boycott this business, that means less profit for the company and as a result fewer or no hiring. When was the last time the stinkin’ union employed somebody? Or wait, the employment comes from the companies that they screw. That’s why they call them union ‘members’ rather than union ’employees’; because the union doesn’t hire ANYBODY! So if you want to talk to me about supporting American workers, I’ll do it. I’ll shop at that business that’s hiring. In fact I’ll do it just to stick my thumb in the eye of the union boss.
Americans need to realize that the unions are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the liberal/progressive movement. They may have served a purpose years ago, but they’ve long since stopped looking out for the working man. I’d trust the CEO nowadays more than the union boss. Shame on the UAW for bashing a employer that actually treats his workers right, WITHOUT THE UNION THUGS!
