Barack Obama isn’t stupid but he has a habit of assuming that everyone else is. Why does he insist on insulting the intelligence of working Americans with tirades against employers who will continue to fight back until he either stops talking or leaves office?
Face it. If you run a business there is nowhere to hide. Deciding who to hire is risky. Deciding who to keep is dangerous, too. Business owners have become pariahs and whipping boys for Democrats creating worries over discrimination against a growing number of their favorite causes, including immigrant workers and employees with gender identity problems you never wanted to know about.
Does the president know what the middle class is, or when he talks about his new jobs plan is he stumping for something else? His renewed pleas for spending sound like he is talking about families making incomes a lot closer to the poverty line than the $50,502 that defines America’s median,¹ one of the only ways we have to measure the health of the middle because the government doesn’t like to rely on income.
For all the demands that we delve into the identities and backgrounds of citizens who purchase guns, did anyone stop to consider why we deny the same citizens the protection of not having to compete with illegals for work? When gun owners go to the polls should they worry that their voting rights are not being protected, either, because the identification needed to buy a firearm is not required to exercise the right to vote?
Instead of lying to the American people about their role in the sequester cuts by pinning the blame for job losses on the GOP, Democrats should ask why their party insists on waging war against job creators by dreaming up ways to scare away jobs.
Are you sick of hearing members of Congress pontificate about the plight of working families when you know they are trying to justify spending our tax dollars to benefit themselves? If lawmakers were concerned about working families they would have given this year’s withholding tax increase a second thought.
Never confuse equality of opportunity with job opportunities. They have nothing to do with each other. Equality of opportunity is a right we enjoy but job opportunities have to be earned. All the equal opportunity and discrimination laws in the world will not get you a job if you don’t deserve one.
