That's called "everyday" in our world, Mr. President.

Some quick hits from the news today.
“I’m sure there are days where I say that one term is enough,’’ Obama said.
We have those days, too, Mr. President. We call them Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
“What keeps me going is a belief that the work that we started in 2009 is not yet complete."
Of course. The destruction is still not complete. The debt could be even higher. There are still allies to turn our backs on, and still more enemies to embrace. There is still more regulation to enact by going around Congress. There is still room to push energy prices higher. There are still more budgets for your party not to pass. There are still more guns for your administration to smuggle into Mexico and foreign leaders to bow to. So much work to do...

Actually, the president thinks his economic policies would have worked, were it not for those confounded...ATM machines.

President Obama explained to NBC News that the reason companies aren’t hiring are not because of his policies, it’s because the economy is so automated. . . . “There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller, or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.

You know what else is killing his economic policies? Newspaper machines. Parking meters. Those horrible pop machines. And worst of all...gumball machines! Seriously, how is a gumball salesman supposed to compete with those things?

  1. For us in Ohio the movement from labor to capital is a significant issue.

    In my callow youth I worked at a gas station pumping gas. Those jobs are gone, yes, but I never intended that to be my career.

    But in Ohio there are, or were, a large number of men and women who looked upon assembly line jobs as a significant part of their path through life.

    but capitalism really does create a process where investment in machinery (capital) replaces the ongoing cost of labor.

    So, as a society, what do we do with this generation of people who aren't exactly prepared for jobs as techies but whose life time job is now being done by a machine?

  2. Amen Bytor. Every day results in thoughts of being free of the stress a job and having a socialist as president.


No profanity, keep it clean.
