“it’s the public-sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers”
Dingy Harry is in for a real disappointmen when the GOP takes back the Senate and Presidency next year and get serious about chopping public sector jobs.
Don’t deceive yourself, Biden knows full well that public sector jobs are non productive in the economy. They do, however, make a population of slaves.
Just thinkin’ aloud here...: Reid was a boxer in his past life wasn’t he........too many to the head I guess.
Yep, I believe you drilled it. :)
Hey, calling Harry Reid a “doddering old fool” is an insult to doddering old fools.
The principles of limited Government, Government that did not get in the way of the material & spiritual progress, achieved by responsible individuals, was premised not on idiotic ideology--such as every Leftwing movement in history--but on reason applied to the actual & specific experiences of the families from whom our leaders sprang. (See America Grounded On Experience & Reason.)
In contrast to the cloudborne thinking that sees bigger & ever more centralized Government as the answer to human problems; the Founders of America relied on what had already been demonstrated by responsible peoples to actually work for human betterment. Understanding & explaining the contrast is the key to turning the demagogues & clowns out of office.
“Creating jobs” spends more of the public purse than it “creates” revenue, period.
Good video. He’s dead on the money.
It is not the federal govt’s job to hire teachers and firefighters - even if they actually did that with the taxes they confiscate. Reid would prefer states be stripped of their choice to hire or not. The fed knows best don’t ya know.
My husband belongs to a tile union, his yearly hours should be from 1200 to 1500 HARRY...2010 he worked a whopping 140 hours, and boy did it ever get so much finer in 2011...a whopping 320, yep HARRY JUST FRICKIN' FINE!!!
For those who remember the old Soviet Union, it was a grim place at least for average citizens. But not so for those in government. Contrary to the official ideals of equality and a classless society that the ruling communist regime espoused, the USSR created a privileged class of party members inside government the nomenklatura.
This semipermanent bureaucracy earned higher incomes, got better health care, ate better food and had greater job security than average Russians, the much-despised proletarians. Today, our bloated federal government seems, in significant ways, to be creating this same dynamic.
The federal government fired 0.55% of its workers in the budget year that ended Sept. 30 11,668 employees in its 2.1 million workforce. Research shows that the private sector fires about 3% of workers annually for poor performance, says John Palguta, former research chief at the federal Merit Systems Protection Board, which handles federal firing disputes.
I thought he was a wrestler, like his buddy Paul Welfare.
OMG...the man is unfit for public office!!
The lie from Genesis 3 - you can be as gods.
Amateur boxer in his High School years.

I’d add not A major factor, THE major factor.
