When the Commerce Department reported Friday that the economy had grown at a humble 2.4 percent in the second quarter, even the liberal Washington Post suggested President Barack Obama’s policies were not leading to the sort of economic growth necessary to reduce unemployment, which has risen from 7.7 percent to 9.5 percent since Obama took office.

“The recovery is fading, and a troubling pattern is setting in: economic growth that is too slow to put Americans back to work,” said the first paragraph in the Post’s report on the new GDP numbers.

But in the worldview presented in an early environmentalist manifesto co-authored by Stanford University’s Paul and Anne Ehrlich and John P. Holdren—who is now director of Obama’s Office of Science and Technology Policy--sluggish growth would not be seen as the “troubling pattern” the Post perceives it to be. In fact, it might be viewed as a positive.

Liberals have no problem being seeing money as an incentive to steal, but working for it baffles them.

These people need to lead by example; and if it works, people will follow suit. But it seems those who push this on others never live it themselves.

I live my principles - I don't recommend anything I am not doing, or working towards myself.

Break the backs of the working class and give more to the welfare class. That seems to be the Presidents goals.

Oh, PuLEAZE!

I'm being forced to go back to work thanks to OBOzo & Company's manipulation of the economy.

Even with a professional income, its become impossible for a 4 person family to make it what my parents would have considered a 'rich' person's wages.

The Title of this article SHOULD be:

Americans would be better off if GOVERNMENT WORKERS work, produce and earn less!

I have about one sound nerve left and this Administration is ON IT!

He’s only referring to the dirty common folks meaning you and me. DC Elitists will be reaping the rewards of their working class slaves.

if Paul Ehrlich was right then jobs would not be getting outsourced to India (since he predicted that they would all starve to death by 1985)

“In the longer term, it may be that the solution to the employment problem will require a reduction in the amount of work done by each worker in order to create more jobs,” wrote Holdren and his co-authors.

Earth to morons -Lead by example. You cut your work week down, take the pay cut that comes with a 20-hour work week (and the loss of benefits that go with part-time work) and tell us how that works out for ya!!

I never cease to be amazed at the idiot ideas that looney leftists cook up for everyone . . . . but THEM!!!

Astonishing that Paul Ehrlich even has a job. He has been wrong so many times before. Whatever he says the opposite is probably the truth.

Will Obama's green advisers, Holdren and the Ehrlichs, lead by example?
