All were asking is that everyone get behind the President in this battle to revive our economy, Solis requested. A more balanced approach in reporting on unemployment would help. I mean, a person might lose his job, but lets not forget that he gains more leisure time. That means more time to spend with his family. More time to pursue his hobbies. Its not a tale of unending woe. There are offsetting gains.
This is so rich a target that it’s too easy . First, it reveals exactly what the Leftists hope to accomplish: no one should care about work, or being productive as such. The government will provide for everything - even decide when you should die (by being denied treatments). And moreover, if the brainless Hilda Solis genuinely believes in all this upside from unemployment - then why does she care how the numbers should be reported? Why should they be carefully reported to combat economic woes if there is so much benefit to being unemployed in her eyes? Why bother to mask or obfuscate the numbers at all? Why not just proudly scream them out as being high, proclaim you want them to spiral upward so that all the hobby-pursuing leisure time would increase exponentially? Of course, if your “hobby” depends on someone being employed to provide it to you - and they aren’t employed either because THEY are now “free” to pursue THEIR hobbies - well...why nitpick, right??
The article is satire! Though I’m sure there’s some truth to it.
