Government Waste: An Oxymoron

$14,000: The Amount a FL Unemployment Office Spent on Superhero Capes
Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its "Cape-A-Bility Challenge" public relations campaign. The campaign featured a cartoon character, "Dr. Evil Unemployment," who needs to be vanquished.

No amount of money the government spends can create sustainable jobs. Every job the government creates is another flea on the dog. The only way to create real, sustainable jobs is for the government to step out of the way. Period. It's a universal law, it cannot be broken, like the law of thermodynamics or gravity.

I don't care if you think it should work, for every flawed idea there is someone who thinks it should work. This president, this congress is playing with peoples lives. People are out here suffering while the leadership plays in it's little sandbox in the beltway deciding what should and should not work based on flawed ideas and ignorance. Meanwhile, real people are losing real jobs, real houses, real dreams and real futures.
