This video is exactly what is wrong with Detroit and exactly what is wrong with America. Basically what we have going on is a job fair sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus in Detroit. This occurred last year when the CBC was traveling around the country holding job fairs. Now I don’t have a problem with job fairs in general, but what I do have a problem with is this tyrannical attitude on the part of these legislators who feel they are responsible for corralling people into a job fair and coercing companies into hiring people in order to lower the unemployment rate. Just listen to Conyers:


Now we know that companies are not responsible for lowering unemployment rates. The problem is, who’s going to do it? And the answer is that the federal government has got to have an employment policy that’s full employment. We want to get the unemployment rate down and that’s what we’re doing here.

The federal government having an employment policy that’s full employment? What is this the Soviet Union? NO! If you want to get the unemployment rate down then get the heck out of the way and stop trying to engineer this economy.

Then chimes in Conyers again with Waters:


And there is no exhibitor here that hasn’t committed to hiring. So you can’t just buy space to advertise.

And accountability – we’re going to follow up with all of the employers and see exactly how many they hired. We do have accountability built into the structure.

What is this accountability? You can’t force a company to hire people. This is America dammit! Just because they are committed to hiring people doesn’t mean they will find someone who fits their job qualifications. Tell me Rep. Waters, what is the punishment for not hiring someone?

Look, I’ll be blunt. The feeling I get from this video is that the plantation owners (the CBC) are looking down on the plantation they’ve created with their economic engineering policies – the policies that keep people dependent on the government. And while they are overseeing the workers and the job providers in their plantation, they are filled with a sense of accomplishment, that they’ve reached out their hand to try and feed those that depend on them. After all, it is their obligation to run the plantation they’ve created. But oh, they enjoy it because it keeps them in power.

This video makes me sick.

So, do you approve of Conyers' message, or are you just trying to be an irritant?

Nah, we'll just let a majority of them stimulate the economy from the unemployment line this January.

Captain counterpoint with his useless non sequitur being an irritant? Surely you jest!

Once again yoyo adds nothing to the conversation and when he's pressed for an answer, he acts the idiot like he always does. At least he's consistent.

Government is not the answer to every question.


Neither is Free Market Anarchy.

Government is in the way. The free market, when given room to operate and as few regulations as possible, works much better.

BTW, it is from Cracked:



Look, I understand why "I ain't asking for help from nobody!" individualism works as an attitude, or a philosophy. No, you shouldn't wait for help to come along. I'll even agree that we don't impress that message hard enough on kids when they're growing up. Kids, if you're reading this, and you fucking shouldn't be, but if you are, let me tell you now:

The world doesn't give a shit about you, and you'll have to wrestle it for every good thing you get. Hell, I've written an entire article about how grown-ups don't tell us how freaking hard everything is, and how the shock of unexpected effort trips us up.

But, for the rich, this somehow gets extended to the absolutely delusional idea that they exist on a purely self-sufficient island, in an ocean full of shiftless layabouts always asking to borrow their stuff.

And you literally hear people express it this way -- in libertarian circles they refer to it as "Going Galt" (as in John Galt, the hero of Atlas Shrugged) -- fed up rich people just disconnecting from this annoying "society" thing that's bleeding them dry. If you live in my part of the country, you'll hear hard-working, rural farmer types say, "I got my own piece of land, I grow my own food, all I want is to be left alone." All right, well tell me this, cowboy:

Let's say some mean, even richer guy, like a wealthy gangsta rapper, hired a bunch of armed thugs to come take your farm. What would you do? Your shotgun won't fend them off -- they have a hundred bigger shotguns. What will you do, call the cops? That is, other people, who will risk their lives while being paid with still other people's tax money, who will try these bad guys in a court funded by yet other people's tax money, under laws passed by legislators paid with other people's tax money? Whoa, slow down there, welfare queen!
