The Bureau of Labor Statistics June jobs report showed that the US economy added 213,000 jobsbringing the number of employed Americans to 155,576,000the tenth record high of the Trump presidency. Democratic National Chairman and former Secretary of Labor under Obama, Tom Perez warned voters to not be taken in by this mirage of the so-called good life.
Remember, each person pushed into a 40-hour-a-week job has lost at least 40 hours of leisure time, Perez pointed out. Is this a trade-off that truly benefits everyone? Most jobs are boring. Many are dangerous. Shouldnt the goal be to work toward the elimination of the need for everyone to have to work for a living? This is the goal envisioned by the great Karl Marx who prescribed socialism as the best way to move society toward an ultimate communist utopia.
Perez argued that lauding the fact that more Americans have jobs also ignores the promise of the Declaration of Independence pledge of equality for everyone. A system that discriminates by disbursing more to those who have jobs than to those who dont will never achieve equality. By accident of birth some are endowed with energy, initiative, and intelligence. If we allow those who inherit such gifts to keep what they earn we will never have equality. Yet, it is the policy of the Republicans to insidiously perpetuate inequality by not forcing the more well-endowed to share the returns they earn from their gifts with those less fortunate. The tax cuts passed earlier this year, for example, benefit only those who produce wealth. Democrats are the Party that will redistribute this wealth to those in need.
The DNC Chairman also reminded voters that it will be visionaries like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who lead the Democratic Party to the equality that can only be achieved through socialism. This young womans June primary triumph over long-term incumbent Joseph Crowley in New Yorks 14th Congressional District showed that voters are ready for the next stage in this countrys transformation.
In other Independence Day news, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) took the occasion to reiterate his opposition to any Supreme Court nominee who does not accept a womans unfettered right to an abortion. Lets look at the Declarations promise of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. It couldnt be clearer that an unwanted child ruins a woman life, circumscribes her liberty, and impedes her pursuit of happiness. It took our courts nearly 200 years to recognize that restrictions on abortion denied these essential constitutional rights to women in the Roe v. Wade case. We must not allow this long awaited recognition to be overturned by misguided sympathy for the uninvited entity that parasitically feeds off a womans body.

I don’t envy you the task you have set yourself John. The Democrats keep making your life more and more difficult as they keep catching up with you. Satire is difficult when reality is so crazy.
“40 hours of WORK costs you 40 hours of Leisure Time” ?????
Are there any 2 brain cells in the head of Perez that are holding hands with each other?
You shouldn’t have a job because you will lose “Leisure Time”???
Guess he wants everyone to be on Welfare forever.
I have never heard a more stupid comment before, but Perez is getting Darwin Award for Dumb.
This Perez person can NOT pass a 51-50 test.
Anything good for America is not good for Democrats.
The left is almost impossible to satirize as this attempt at satire shows, in that they have already said things more ridiculous than any of this. Remember “funemployment” and “staycations”?
