Happy at least, if you have a job. In spite of spending more money than the entirety of the Iraq war on the so called "stimulus" the actual rate of unemployment is probably closer to 16% than to the 9.6% that is the official rate. Yes, yes, I know that the answer is that the Obama administration didn't appreciate how bad things were. Well then, why in the hell were they allowed to tinker with something that they admit is too complicated for them to understand?
But today we celebrate American labor, and yes, I use the small l version of labor. The large L version has done more to destroy jobs than anything else, and they have done it with the cooperation of the Democrats. As the mid term elections near, they are getting ready to spend their members dues on making sure that Democrats retain control in order to keep doing such a great job as they have been, Three unions alone are planning on spending over $150 million for Democrats this year.
Think about it, union pensions are getting ready to implode from being underfunded, and the unions are going to spend $150 million on buying politicians. It may not appear to make sense, but by buying those politicians, they can vote to have the tax payer pay for the busted union pensions.
Win - Win for everyone but the taxpayer! And who really cares about them anyway?
