TO THOSE STILL EMPLOYED, WE SALUTE YOU

“And also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God.” –Ecclesiastes 3:13 ‪#‎HappyLaborDay‬

Since Barack Obama began his reign of terror, the food stamp ranks have swollen to 47 million. There are 93 million people not in the work force, the highest rate in 38 years. He has bragged about 200,000 new part-time low wage jobs in the same month that 400,000 better-paying full-time jobs disappear. Since those who have not found work and have run out of unemployment are not counted in the ginned-up unemployment numbers, he brags about a 4.7% unemployment rate when the true figure is in excess of 19%.

My last full time job was in 2011 when I worked as a transporter for Medicaid recipients until, as they do with all their small vendors, the state of Illinois forces them into bankruptcy by not paying them. They don’t even pay lottery winners, even though the money is supposed to be there. It was exactly one year between the business closing and my social security benefits to begin. I was fortunate to be close enough to early retirement that we survived. Millions of others are not so fortunate. There is no reason to believe that the situation will improve anytime soon.

    Okay, Pete – tell the truth – did you do that yodel thing in “5 o’Clock World” when your band played it? Fun song and I haven’t thought of it for a while.
